      Go to the K&N website.  Search for SN-2550.  It has the 20 degree angle, but it also has an oval shape that is slightly tapered.  Gives you more clearance by the seat and water hose.

      Jerry:  I’d start with a 16 tooth driver and an 82 sprocket.  Going to be within a tooth or so either way, depending on your engine, flex, model year Leopard, etc.

      Good luck if you go.  Hallett is a great track and we’ve had a lot of fun racing there.

      Maybe I missed it being reported somewhere, but is there any update on Garrett Boone?  Heard he was pretty badly hurt.

      Ha.  As TJ said, more badassery is good.

      Overall bumpers help things as is.  Best comment was how, with the new proposal/CIK bumper system, guys would be penalized when at the start they are punted into the back of someone in front.  New CIK proposal seems to make more new problems than it solves.  Comments about not being able to see all the rough driving aren’t justification for any position.  You put marshals at several corners, let them move around a bit, and nail the  guys that you do catch with significant penalties.  So you don’t catch every one of them?  So what?  You put some hotshoe factory guy at the back, just like anyone else, and it sends a message to everyone.  Enforcing some of these rules about rough driving would not stop all of it, but it would be a good start.

      Ok Brad, I’m good with 395 lbs.  Prefer to not go any higher though.  On a road course I doubt a guy would be handicapped even running at 405 lbs.  Hope is to get some additional guys who run Stock Honda sprint stuff to come out and see how fun a road course is with a stock moto.  Many (like us) have 30 mm frames, run mostly sprint, and try to avoid too much extra weight on the frames.  My driver is 160 lbs and the more weight we add the sooner I’ll have to see the chiropractor.  Re rules it should be stock.  Stock ignition, piston, one of the two approved carbs, pumparounds,

      etc.  Pipe should be somewhat open?  Let’s get the word out that we can make this class happen.  Like Chris Hegar had requested some time back, it would be nice to have scheduling so a racer can run both stock honda and modified if he wants.  At any rate Kelly, I’m good for the sponsorship for Topeka’s stock honda class.

      So if we have a sponsor for Sprint Stock Honda 125 at Topeka, what would the weight be?   385 lbs?   And what rules would apply to the engine?  Not sure if you’ve thought about that Kelly, but I’d consider sponsoring the class.

      I’ve lost all faith in the US Postal Service.  In last two years, two packages sent to me thru USPS just never showed up.  I called and they showed the packages were delivered.  One ended up showing up about a week later; where it was I was never told (although when I first called, they said it had been delivered (obviously to a wrong address).  When possible, I make sure to get stuff sent UPS or FedX.  Nobody’s perfect, and I’m sure the folks at USPS generally do a fine job, but there appear to be too many “exceptions” working there.  In your case, the shipper should have insured it.  Red tape nightmare to get any recovery, but with persistence it eventually happens.

      Kelly:  Just running leopard and it’s good to have three classes to run, just wished it was four like last year.  Understand if members said they’re not interested in the TAG Sr.  We’re all for the bigger classes of course; the more the merrier.  See you on Oct. 4.

      Last year they had two TAG Light Sr. races, so you could run (with a Leopard) four races over two days.  Wish they had done that again this year.  I know it’s a logistics thing sometimes but for sure, when going to a National event, and when the organization is trying to bring in as many entries as possible from around the country, it helps to provide the options Chris mentions.  More bang for the buck and time spent.
