Talking Props to Performance Concepts!

to Patrick Ho of Performance Concepts of Pinole (his BARF name is Nairebis). Funny how things come full circle...Patrick was one of the first people I met up at the Wall way back in the early 90's. I lost touch with him until Gixxergirl1000 re-introduced me to him when I mentioned that the K6 needed a TB synch. That led to a valve clearance adjustment a few weeks later, and then troubleshooting a minor fueling issue (Power Commander). This past weekend I stopped by and together we did the Clutch Mod, which has resulted in noticeably smoother engagement and shifting. What I find interesting is 1) Patrick explains what he's doing as he goes along in a concise, easy-to-understand manner - he doesn't talk down to you, and 2) he has a terrific sense of attention to detail. He didn't have to clean up the wear marks from the clutch springs on the center piece; he didn't have to de-burr both the original and newly-drilled oil holes in the rear of the clutch basket; he didn't have to chuck the clutch pushrod in his lathe and polish it...but he did. Nothing more I'd like to do more than get hold of a spare engine and let him have at it! But the trackbike definitely gets dropped off next month for a going-through.

Pat's the man, as far as I'm concerned.
