Rumor has it that JS7 felt like the new YZF had a little muffin top going on and it was throwing him off his game?
What does the Joe Gibbs team do?
Fabricate a beautiful & thinner aluminum tank, mould some new matching radiator shrouds.
The grapevine was also saying that yamaha was not into it at all as they don't like the teams messing with bread and butter of the bikes.
I have a feeling this will all be forgotten if it helps the tuning forks get up on box week after week.

I'm three weeks into a grade 2 calf strain from a misfire kick on cold morning,
2 weeks on a smashed thumb via a ball peen hammer and it's all taking it's toll.
Both are way more of hassle than I'd like to be dealing with right now
and much more pain than I think should be involved with both mishaps.
I had to miss the first round of the So Cal Vintage Series,
I'm not sure I'll be able to kick my bike over for the another 3 weeks
not to mention the day to day.
My whiny doldrums am not stoked.

The other day Mike and I went to Perris raceway to mess around on the track & on the way in Mike noticed the sign read the oldest track in So Cal.
This morning I stumbled across this link with some of the history and a couple pages of photos, I've been going there for years and had no idea.
Pretty cool stuff.

This was the day after a big rain back in 2000, Bob & I took the Attex 500 SuperChief out to Lake Elsinore.
I think that's when we decided a 500cc twin cylinder 2 stroke was way too much for a vehicle with no suspension or seat belts, I sold it shortly after that.
