    The culprit:- either there's either a crack in the neck of the radiator or the cap isn't sealing. There's no overflow into the reservoir at all. I'll need 2 sets of eyes on this to be sure - that will have to wait until next week when I get back from the track.

    I guess all pictures have to be landscape not portrait, otherwise it goes sideways!!! Arghhhh. Can't find an editing function to rotate the pictures, BUT in a rush to get on the road.

    Royalty isn't strictly the right word but I definitely meant that it's a great honour to have him sharing an interest in the bikes we all love. Dave Moss is a suspension setup legend, I've watched so many of his videos online and you can see he loves what he does.

    I guess over the last few years I've met great people who've become friends, read Sport Riding Techniques, Performance Riding Techniques, watched Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist and Dave Moss's videos. All of which has kept me out of mischief and got my riding to where it is. I don't usually get too worked up about famous people etc etc but for me he is a absolute legend.

    Any way to clearly recognize the 19 versus 22 cams by stampings, markings etc?

    Good to someone that's doing something instead of just talking about it. I measure the lobe mc19 are bigger than mc22's cams.
    Woukd you not go the full hog and put usd forks with radial calipers? Check out my bike and with a brembo mc you'll have the tail up braking into corners!

    No relation to that "Moss" Dr. I don't need brakes Zane - that's killing my lap times Better suspension to support and geometry for mid corner speed loads and better management of carcass stress is where I'm spending my $$ and effort/time. Wally - please visit feelthetrack.com, catalystreactionsbw on YouTube as those sources will give you some good intel.

    I will post as often as I can to supply what I learn with the engines, bike, dyno etc. That will save others a lot of time. Nothing this week as I'm traveling, coaching & working, but a few days open next week for me to roll my sleeves up and get back to the dyno room.

    MC 19 cams being sourced in Adelaide. Building a list of part numbers for the MC-22 tonight. Looks like this might be quite expensive but to heck with that. There's a championship to win!

    Have a great week everyone.
