Kenny called me before his wife and I have to say I did not have anything to do with the parts BUT they are competing against GS1000 and big Kawasaki 1000's (I had a lot of input). His rider passed the big, winning Kawasaki person on the last lap after an F up BUT still had enough power to hold him down the straight. A big victory for US GUYS! Nobody thinks the single cam can do anything. Let's see what happens tomorrow. A big VICTORY for Kenny and US!!! You guys should see the cam he is using. ;D ;D ;D

If I have my facts straight, the cam is a 125-75 with a few more degrees of duration.
Take care,
David

The guys at CycleX make some bold claims.  The difference is that they back their words up with actions!!!  Way to go!!!

It makes the 75 look small Dave. ;) ;D We will see how they make out today....Kenny was pretty excited yesterday and I don't blame him. The GS1000 and KZ1000's can run very large cams and have much larger valves. Then there is the advantage of 2 cams and lack of lobe separation issues that exist for the SOHC. Personally I think the CB's should be given a displacement advantage secondary to that stuff

I watched most of that race from the main straight and it was so fun to see that bike screaming by and keeping up just fine with all those dohc frontrunners!!! Now I wish I could have seen the end. I didn't know he got by that kawi.

The suspense...

What's it patterned off of, the 125-x12?
Take care,

I know what you mean Mike, but the organizers have to fill the grids and unfortunately grouping years is necessary. Further complicating of rules re single vs double cams doesn't ever seem to happen. Those who know what it takes to compete against the likes of those other bikes only appreciate the great efforts even more. This forum especially! 

If anyone has some pics after today, get em up here please.  8)

OK....just got off the phone with Kenny. You guys are not going to believe this. Long story short...The main race is set with 3 waves of riders. CycleX bike is in the second wave. Rider stalls the bike on the line. Officals will not allow any assistance until all the staggered waves are clear. Kenny and his crew jump over the wall, attach a kickstart lever and fire the bike up (Hmmmm....good thing they left the shaft exposed). Bike fires up BUT they are down 1 minute 50 seconds. It was a 6 lap race. Kenny's rider goes ballistic and WINS THE RACE BY 3 SECONDS!!  :o :o Once again passes every twin cam etc etc. That's unbelievable guys. I really wish I was there to see it.

Pffftt Ken you had it in the bag the whole time, you were just playing with them.  SOHC's rule and shock the WORLD especially when they carry the CycleX Brand!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Excellent showing Ken, I was tempted to show for this shindig but funds were slim and far between.  Next time!

Let me tell you guys that it was an unbelievably amazing performance to watch. You could just see him riding the absolute crap out of the bike. Every lap would go by and he would come by where I was standing, having passed something like 6 bikes. I wasn't sure he could do it, after seeing how fast that gpz1000 was yesterday, but I was cheering when I saw him in front. I went by their tent after the race and one of the guys said he had something like a 7 second lead at the end! I'vegot pics that I will upload soon of the bike. He was leaning so far he was scraping the shifter and even some of the sidecover screws!! The back tire was absolutely roached!

Too bad they don't. Vintage provides some of the best racing anywhere!  ::)
