Re: Tyre Choices

I've recently got hold of some of the new SIP Performance tyres, and I'm looking forward to trying those out. An interesting pattern, and they do well under the fingernail test. :D

Re: BLOA dead?

Surely there can't be that many members anyway? Just a handful of Gavin's mates I would have thought. And of those that were I should think a lot quickly fell by the wayside.

With a 60/110 and a gp 150 barrel bored to 175 you can pack it so that you have mid 120s transfers. Mine rides really nice like that, but I've also raised exhaust to 178 and inlet is something like 140. That's pretty much what I had in mind.

Re: 175 Piston

Isn't the conversion piston taller to account for the shorter rod on a standard set up? I genuinely get confused over this. I'd be thinking along the lines of a standard GP barrel taken out to 175.
