2 Day Tech Session
Hey y'all. As you know we've been talking up a tech session here. Well, it's coming. Tech session will be held Saturday and Sunday October 15-16th, 2011 at Bucks Down Racing, 375 Roberts Road, Oldsmar, FL 34677. http://bucksdowntampa.com/index.htm
Now we all have to decide what exactly we would like to have done to our bikes. I'll ask for you to keep it as simple as possible, just to be fair to everyone.
Seems like steering head bearings are gonna be the hot topic of the day. If anyone has experience doing these, that would be awesome. We need to know what special tools we need to accomplish them and if anyone has them.
As far as other things that may be possible, Pair valve removal, ground fix, progressive front springs, permanent a/f screw install, possibly even re-jetting a carb, Clayton mod drilling.......etc.
If anyone has any others, let us know. Just remember the time frame we have and look up how long it takes to complete what you want done. Everyone is going to be responsible for bringing all supplies and parts for their work or working it out with Glenn to have them shipped in. I'm sure Mike has some things like fluids at his shop, but that will be up to everyone to check with Glenn on this.
The other thing we could use is lifts and stands, for you local guys. The shop has 2 lifts, I am bringing my lift and possibly Jojo's stand. John has said he will bring his lift and stand if he can bring it early, that way he can ride to the tech session. I will have my basic tools that I carry in the bike. Anyone can bring their own tools, and I ask everyone to be respectful of others tools and the shop itself.
Glenn and Mike, the shop owner, are being gracious enough to offer up some BBQ and the shop space. Let's make sure we show them what a great bunch of people we are. I spoke with Glenn and decided it would be best to have zero alcohol at the tech session. Sorry if anyone doesn't like that, but with others bikes up on lifts and being worked on, and it being at someones shop, I would hate to have something happen if things got careless. There will be plenty of time for "Miller time" after the work is done. Please respect this decision.
Let's get this thing going and weigh in with any comments or suggestions. thank you.
Almost forgot, this is the list of local hotels and 4 of them are within about a mile of the shop. A, C, D, and E are the 4. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&pr...e&ved=0CAQQtgM
