sell your duc, buy an SV

Compete in ULW, LWss, LWsb, LWgp, GTL, Supertwins and Thunderbike

I betcha you can find a pretty well sorted SS SV for 3k...



Tim, to be honest- that was my goal prior to tracking the Duc. I sold my ratted out Gixxer, and had the Duc sittin around, and not real extra $...so, hence the Duc.  I am really beginning to like racing this thing- def. took a bit to get used to compared to the old SRAD, but I'm getting it.  Trust me thoug- if I could find a money tree, I'd put the Duc back to street and find an SV.

Reading the rulebook it looks like a custom frame is legal in supertwins, GT, and of course LWGP.  If, for some reason you need one bike for all lightweight classes... obviously you'll have to compromise. 
but  then it's not legal for lightwt 40 and tbike and they are out classed in supertwins so you still did not gain any races  the clear winner in lightwt down here is the bimota but it's 30k and they just added throttlebodys and a motec system to kevins bike. our raggetty old bike is the best thing to happen to chris's shop

I'm clarifying this more for myself... he has ANOTHER sv that he is selling.  Hey Mark, with all this banter about Duc's I am thinkin we need a new, well actually we need A paint scheme.  Or at least a central theme...

Wasn't there SV cup races?

My take of club racing is all about run what you brung. If you can have an advantage with your bike then exploit it. It isn't so much about fairness or who the better rider is but more about who can put the best package together including the rider.

For me it is on the low budget end building my FZR600 with a total package cost of $5000 and winning a championship or two. Yeah there are faster and more expensive bikes now but I do what I can. Specs for my bike is 106rwhp(100hp on the Prieto dyno), close to 400 pounds without fuel, 120 front and 155 rear tire, without lightweight stuff. I am sure it can lose weight but there again cost is a factor.

I now ride a Ducati 800 mainly to preserve my points lead in Ultralight last year. But now after spending $10K to build, it isn't worth getting rid of it to get a different bike so it is the Ducati 800 for me. Specs on this machine is 87rwhp, carbon tank, Marchessini wheels, Ohlins shock and Ohlins internals for the forks. What I have found is that it is competitive with a really good SS spec SV and a 80 rwhp 1st Gen SV where the SV has the weight advantage. Top speed is virtually the same.

What I like about it is seeing the differences in the performance of all the different bikes. I see how the Ducati 800 compares to the SV and the FZR and I have found that I am just as fast on the Ultralight class Ducati 800 as I was on the once and still is Middleweight FZR. I know the FZR is Thunderbike legal but wasn't that also old Heavyweight Sportsman?

I don't think that clubracing is all about buying the newest badness or I would have already bought the Bimota or NCR-if I could afford it. It is about running what you brung-I am still waiting for Dave to bring out that Kawasaki. I think I might revive Devin's GS1000 or build an ole school CB750 more to just paradde around in Ultralight or even Vintage if we can bring it back.

Yes it was. Back when I ran HW Sportsman (92 F2) there were a few mid 80's sportbikes in there also out having a good time. Old VF750 was one I remember running against. Think he quit racing mid way through the year they changed it to thunderbike and allowed the newer SV650.
