    KT-100 Superbox? KT-100 open pipe? What class are you talking about? Also, are you running in conjunction with another series?

    If there is enough interest to run an open pipe class, I would seriously consider it… Is Brad planning on letting you run on the club series race dates?

    We have spoken to Bobby at imi and yes those would be the race dates. When we have enough interest we will get together and come up with a rules package.

    thanks

    Are there any suggestions on the rules? I would like to keep them simple.

    thanks

    A very reliable source tells me IKF is very interested in coming back to Colorado. In my humble opinion, they have the best series going in the West. Not necessarily implying adopting a specific sanctioning body, just thought you may want to look at their rules and class structure. Could be a starting point.

    Fletcher,

    Simple rule, just make a choice of exhaust.

    Yamaha KT-100 per IKF engine tech. SSX can or Open Pipe 360 lbs.

    Long live the KT-100! I think it would be great to have KT-100 racing at the local level. I would keep the SSX can for Newbies, and maybe do an Open pipe class if there is enough people competinig. The SSX class has less tuning involved and concentrates on driving skills. It is a somewhat less expensive option than TaG.

    Open pipe is a blast, but involves alot of tuning. Tuning consits of Carb, clutch, pipe, flex, etc… :loony: Let alone all the spares needed. (spare clutches, different pipes, etc..) Open pipe racing is also tougher on the engine. A KT-100 w/SSX can will go all year without a rebuild. Open pipe will have you doing a top end every 3-5 weekends max if you want to stay up front.

    Just some things to consider.

    BR

    Brad, Good job considering this at your club!

    Cheaper than Tag?

    We ran the Rotax cutch for 3 years and only changed the drive gear. Motori, went 2 years and is still going?

    Get back to work Brian! You’re displaying excessive personal computer use on work time! 😯

    Ricky-Bobby,

    As you know I am not working. I am seeking medical help so I dont turn into you!! I like being able to turn my neck when someone calls my name.

    SSX can if a wet clutch like a DXL is used, it wont see much abuse. On a SSX can set-up you set the stall/slip at around 8,400 RPM. As opposed to a open pipe set-up where you slip it to 9,400 and higher. Please realize my Yamaha knowlege is from 1984-2001. I havent race one since 2001, but helped a lot of succesful Yama-dogs back in Indiana. When I last raced Yamaha SSX can I used a L&T single disc dry clutch. I flipped the disc every race and replaced the (then) $25.00 disc once. Not bad for a 12 race season in SIRA.

    Get back to work Rick. Quit reliving “the pass” in Lajunta. It makes Dave sick!

    BR
