S&S Engineering MGR Jeff Bailey @ Bonneville World of Speed meet
This week, S&S Cycle's Engineering Manager, Jeff Bailey is at Bonneville attending the "World of Speed" meet and has brought his own custom built bike to put to the salf flats. Here is Jeff's first progress report:
"My Dad (Neil), Gene Dlask and I left Sunday morning. WE took 2 days getting out. Had to do a front brake job on the truck when we got here because the trailer brakes weren't working properly on the way out. No big deal when you have Gene along.
Today is tech inspection and we made it through that with little drama. This is the World of Speed meet put on by the USFRA, so it is a little smaller than Speedweek, but the weather is cooler and the lines are shorter.
Racing starts tomorrow and runs through Saturday. My bike is a 1995 Buell S2 that I built up from a bar frame purchased through the badweatherbikers.com webite. The engine is a 160 cast prostock, 4.8: bore x 4.375 stroke. The real trick thing about this bike is the EFI system. Nevin and Rob figured out how to create a closed loop wide band O2 sensing system. This system uses 1 throttle body from the S&S Billet Pro Stock engine. So Tuning should be easy. They also set up a cool AIM dash/data acq system.
The Hillegass brothers, Kyle, Nevin and Grant should be arriving tonight. They left a day early and headed to see the Grand Canyon.
More to come!"
