Thanks everyone, and congrats Lance!  [thumb]

Wonder how the Team TY will do with it's new (on the way) 18mm Mikuni?   [wink]

Just for kicks, I added up the points that the Team TY accrued this year: 157. [clap]

Damn tough little bike! [lol8]

Enough of the teaser. Now to see if the new 18mm carb will fit where the old 16mm carb did.

Preliminary looks good....

[TY80Stuff134_zps316334e5]


Oops. First chink in the armor, Ted....

[TY80Stuff135_zps335824da]


I think the choke lever can be bent down to clear the fuel petcock. No worries so far. [thumb]

No way the new Mikuni was gonna bolt up to the old manifold. Time to fab!! I bought some aluminum tubing that fit the new carb, so the next step is to have the manifolds (yeah, we have more than one bike these days [naughty] ) modified to accept the new carb.

Next stop: Our old friend Jef Morgan at his machine shop and then Ronnie and his TIG welder.  Feel like doing some welding, Ron??   [wink]

Stay tuned! [icon10]

Gee, wouldn't it be nice to have custom 1-piece billet intake manifolds for the new carbs?

The mind boggles.....    [sneaky]

Well, before the over-the-winter TY mods get out of control, we had our final League competition of the year last weekend at San Ysidro. Hammer, Lance, Konrad, Yosemite, and Yers all fought it out for bragging rights.....aw, who am I kidding. We did it for fun! [lol8]


Hammer -

The hero pics. It started with Lance stating he was taking the "man" line -

[SanYsidro2014195_zps1764cf02]

Hammer: I didn't see it, do it again!

[eekers]
[SanYsidro2014201_zps1b13e15f]

I guess Hammer got a good look at the Team bike's drain plug. [lol8]

How 'bout it Yosemite, taking the "man" line?

[SanYsidro2014197_zpscf09bfa3]

Guess not. [lol8]

Hammer elected not to take the "man" line either, as he got thirsty in that section -

[SanYsidro2014192_zpsd8cf5451]

The "man" line was not without consequence -

[SanYsidro2014205_zps0a8224ca]



Leading to repairs in the parking lot -

[SanYsidro2014207_zpscfcdef93]

[SanYsidro2014210_zpsf0596823]


As always, we had a blast. A big thanks to our scorers, SadieBugg (a.k.a. Potato Chip Girl), and the retired (re:fired) Steve O. -

[SanYsidro2014155_zpsd97471f2]

Thanks kids! [clap]

Until next year -

Ooohh yeah, here we go!!! [naughty]

I finally had a chance to pick up one of the manifolds today.

[IMG_20150310_175334_zpsv1odcn4v]

[IMG_20150310_175349_zpsvt2shov5]


Step 1: Does it fit the silly-assed carb I bought?

[IMG_20150310_175437_zpsbnfuesyl]


The answer is YES!!! [icon10]


Gaskets are on the way as we....type. Just to let all 5 fans of this thread know, one of the League bikes competed in the PM class of the Comache Cup held in Texas this past weekend -

[Pinkie%20at%20Comache%20Cup%202_zpscn9wqv0t]

[Pinkie%20at%20the%20Comanche%20Cup_zpshsxl6yb1]


The Team TY also competed on Sunday in the AM class. I have no pics of that, though. [bncry]

So the question remains. Will this hare-brained 18mm Mikuni carb swap work? Will it even fit? Will it be stupidly over-carbed? Will Danny kill Burt?? Will Jessica (Webb) forgive Danny (no idea) if he does??? Find out the answers to these and much more on the next episode of...
