Interesting Steve, are you running FCR or CR?I have 39mm’s on my Mk3 750. Maybe too big, but someone said worth 2 seconds a lap . Anyway they actually do not extend above the frame top rails. Keihin smoothbores probably the pinnacle of carb technology, though happy to concede some of the more esoteric stuff might be better.
Keep taking the anti inflammatorys. I find you need 3 weeks for them to settle things down. Hope things go well at Cadwell. I am thinking about Croft but not hard.
Hi Ralph, sorry to hear of your back problems but good news about the championship; I myself have been suffering with a back problem for the past few seasons, it manifests itself as an itch, when I scratch it my fingers are covered in a yellow substance, the more yellow it is the slower my lap times!Like i said I am not a fan of drugs and one of the reasons is, I feel more damage can be done because it is possible to do too much, made possible by the drugs.
Because of the afore mentioned knee, I have been taking Ibuprofen, starting three days before a meeting and I think this may have masked how bad the back was, I am proper slow to get out of the chair just now, it will be ok in a few days but I think I have defiantly done myself no favours by riding the bike. Getting old sucks.
