Don't be put off by this Charlotte - with a decent/light rider and good suspension you'll very likely be competitive.

well - as there are 3 board users so far who havent got the right kits (that cant be adapted in any fashion) - Phoenix & Max (Lin), Domski (via Rich @ Louigi Moto) & AK - without knowing any others who dont use the board, perhaps some way round can be found?

Lin - Al didnt give the frame/engine no - just ordered the later one for his 2001 bike - and now JHP are trying their best to find some, but no luck in the UK & Italy yet.... as you say "tomorrow is another day"

update from the nice & very helpful Dave at JHP:

these kits for later bikes were never offered as part of the deal,
had they been, they would not have been at the price quoted
however, there are none available

so - Chris, Michael - any ideas on how the 3 can still remain competitive?

That's bleedin awful....

I remember various discussions, before the BB kit price was announced, considering the option of custom pistons, boring the barrels and nicasil plating. Last chat we had with Chris Bushell we worked out a price of about 350 (100/piston, 60/barrel boring & coating, 30 for gudgeon pins etc)

Don't know if that's realistic as I haven't done it for years, but might be worth a try talking to those that can be more accurate.

Good luck and keep us informed. Use of 900 engines is not an option!!

Cheers,

Ali

trouble is, Al feels awful at the moment, cos he did keep mentioning the 2 different kits, as soon as he got the bike, & then before & during the AGM

Ali, am not sure if we can afford to go this route at the mo, tho it was being discussed by several calls between mech bods last night.

The pot is almost empty at present, as all bits had been collated, and are just awaiting assembly.

Waiting for rabbits out of hats?

Folks,

An e-mail is going out to all entrants explaining the way out of this problem, tonight.

There is it would appear a way forward, subject to AK doing some measurements for me.

Chris

I have just spoken to Rich Lewellin (Louigi Moto) as we have the same problem as a few of you with a 99 engine (I think).

Rich can bore the stock barrels out and get the nicosil plated so you can then use your big bore pistons from your kits, that's one way around the problem.

Price will depend on how many of you go down this route (assuming it's OK in the rules)

Drop Rich a call on 01761 453366 or 07775 557797 he's waiting for your calls

Hope that helps

Wouldnt it have been so much easier and cheaper to restrict the 620's so they make the same power as the 583's (at least for the first couple of years)????
