It comes with a small sacrifice in power but is really easy.

There are other ways that would make more power (pulling piston out, rebalancing crank) but I believe the rules require no work be done below head gasket, so as to not make it a spending race.

If you need help, there are a bunch of us willing to show you how.

This is very valuable to me and I appreciate you taking the time to respond, I get home around late December, and I'm hoping to have a fun "return" year in 2019; so this appears as if it would make a suitable and cost effective way to enjoy some track days.

Something like this would be perfect, I'm not sure if PTT (or any of the other groups) have a 'tricylcle' group; but cost effective track time is definitely in my future.

I'll be home for a couple of weeks next month, a welcome break to the grind; so I'll begin looking for a reasonable 600 to Frankenbike; thanks so much for taking the time to respond and provide some guidance to some random dude

It's called B group if you're quick on your "little" bike, C if you're not If you're really fast on it, you can call it A group

It's been a few millennia since I turned a throttle, so I suspect they'll create a new group in my honor, the "D" Group "soap box Derby".

I appreciate the feedback, I recall liking riding with PTT so I'll give a go when I get home.

Madame, I do indeed thank you

Indeed I shall! But it'll be awhile unfortunately, next season even. But don't be surprised when I do
