  2. Had a great time again! The Tenni broke down on the first day. Voltage reg. Thanks to Eric and Docc and Gary and Andy and Rick for sorting me out to do the fix when she gets home. The accumulated knowledge and desire to help of these gents is priceless. [img]https://static.imgzeit.com/reduced/f2eff9abf8f5b556/IMG_3415.jpg[/img]

  8. I counted eleven Guzzis, two BMW motorrad. And a Thunderbird . . . (Not all in the same place at the same time). As for SpineFrames, seven: '97 1100 Sport-i, '00 RedFrame, '02 Tenni, '02 red/grey LeMans, Sctt2525's Ballabio, and a pair of red LeMans ('03/'04) Condolences, Randy. Was very hoping to meet you.

  9. I always have trouble with these youtube experts when they are going along with a reasonable explanation about stuff albeit basic and then they make a total howler of a mistake or omission. I take the attitude that there is generally something to learn even if you go through 49min and only learn 1 thing.

The reality is it takes a lot less power to drive a cam than people imagine because you're compressing springs. Springs store energy and the energy needs to go some

  10. The noise from gear drives varies depending on many factors including engine harmonics but also mesh clearance cold and hot. I've had engines that wine when cold and have a slight clatter when hot. As the alloy crankcases heat up and the bearing centers that support the gears move away from each other the whine caused by tight clearances dissipates and is replaced by gear backlash noise. depending on many many variables is the volume of noise in hot and cold conditions.
