    Thanks plenty more to come yet.....next plan is to build up a new front wheel with an 8inch drum brake for some more stopping power along with some other tweaks

    Oh, i know exactly what I'm gonna find lol..
    Mismatched conrods since it was what i could find 15 years ago and one small end was toast. Had a new bronze bushing made for the timing side, fixed a few pulled base studs, guess its due for the rest now. Anyhow, last time i checked the main bushing was getting well worn and vibes have increased. May as well have my engine guy have a good look at it when i bring him the boxes. He appreciates getting everything disassembled and degreased lol.

    Loud exhaust to be expected as since its straight through......but no good for the planned track day with an imposed noise limit of 105db, bought some slip in baffles which has helped some, looks to now be right on the limit so maybe some fibreglass insulation wrapped round the baffle from the loft with be the ticket.

    Had varying results with that kind of baffle. Noise limits have been an issue at British circuits for a long time. Brooklands Cans were the answer years ago.

    Must have worked:

    The Tiger 100's sporting pretensions were later further proven through Freddie Clarke's 1939 lap record at Brooklands of 118.02 miles per hour (189.93 km/h) on a bored-out 503 cc Tiger 100.'

    BTW- don't use loft insulation fibreglass , the right stuff for silencers is easily (and Cheaply) obtained.

    Track days what an epic idea, so come the day set off early and arrive around 8 at Castle Combe, dry weather so all good. We were in a group organised through the Brooklands Museum so a cross section of old bikes, Combe is a fast flowing circuit with some chicanes added to slow up the bikes, there were cones out to show turn in apex and braking locations but to be fair my plan was to stay on the bike and feel my way in + the engine was run in but untested in track condition ( bit like the rider
    No real issues during the day Noise test passed no problem, the plugs look very white after the first run and although the main jetting felt ok on the road it was clearly too lean, we carried out a couple of main jet changes ending up with 320 but there is more playing to be had when the rider gets up a few more brave pills. The bug has certainly bitten and with this in mind I am now have some new crankcases and all the bits to do a bottom end build so I know its history - some of the old engine will be used like the crank but I want to see what cams its currently running before I make that choice. Anyway here's some pics from the paddock
