Ive posted on here not as much as usual been busy with work,baby and getting to the track. Here's my lesson I had my 1441 done over the winter and have been struggling to be consistent with it and run at its full potential. I've messed with the gearing even moved the wheelbase back 2". Couldn't get the bike to 60'. It was like I forgot how to ride. Its been frustratin to say the least becuase I know the bike is a rocket. When we did the 1441 my builder told me to remove the Brock's cushion kit I had. He told me they didn't work. He's got 17 years of racing under his belt I have a lot to learn. I did as he suggested. Here's where my lesson was learned. He doesn't like them and they didn't work for him. No offense to him he's very smart and knowledgeable about busa's and hand clutch racing. Hes volunteered his time come out to the track and gave me a hand as well as get me a discount on my nitrous set up. He's not a builder like lees or carpenter he's a guy in his garage local to me with a good reputation. I ran 90% of my passes with that cushion in. I'm familiar with how it feels. Without it the clutch was very grabby it made launching the bike very hard to me. I put the cushion back in last week ive only got to make 2 passes ( rained out) with it in but it's much smoother to me. I can't wait to get back and get a few more passes to get the feel of that again. I'll have this thing flying! I guess my point being is what works for me doesnt mean it will work for you and vice versa.
