    We should make some measurements and replicate them :). The welds are pretty nice on the chambers... brackets not so much. You ever fancied a working holiday to Thailand to help 'em out?

    Good to see you have see the light and got rid of those heavy restrictive OEM pipes, should allow it to rev up cleaner and a bit more power everywhere once you have found the right jets and needles settings. Did you get the mild steel or the stainless steel? I'm running a Stainless steel set on my Aprilia, great colour on the pipes after a few runs, but If I was going to buy a set for racing, the mild steel can be repaired much easier.

    No choice in the VJ21s, stainless only from Tyga. We'll just have to buy lots of cartons for [MENTION=1003]Charlie[/MENTION] if there's a problem.

    Was easier to see the light @ $500 for the pipes versus $1200 for Jolly Motos, which were about the only thing that worked with the VJ21 and the swingarm. Once they allow VJ22s as Period 6 then there's the opportunity to swap to the 22 swingarm and run 22 pipes but yeah, Tyga finally making 21 pipes made it an easy choice. Plus needed mufflers for the LC and some rearsets, so one big Tyga order was sensible :).

    Good to see you approve and good to see you about these parts. Planning on doing any PCRA next year?

    No racing for me for a while, but I'm thinking about helping out in bike setup and the pits role maybe, or doing some marshaling if no one needs help.

    Might take you up on that offer of bench space for a rebuild one day :D, especially now I've got Mick's old LC. Always plenty of things to fix and drink beer while staring at motorbikes and going "yep, there's your problem".

    Sounds like a plan, go to love the older 2t, they give you lots of shed time tuning and fixing whilst have a beer or three.

    Although Stace and I have yet to discuss it (and therefore consider this broaching the subject), the newly built workbench out here would be excellent for a superchiller and keg setup.

    G'day, I have to thank you for making this thread public.

    I have a RGV VJ22 that I'm restoring/rebuilding and things like the list of gearbox parts have been a godsend!
