Welcome! While not a bike guy myself, there may come a time in the not to
distant future when I might try to pick the brain of a fellow as obviously
knowlegable about bike motors as yourself. Right now my motors probably
weigh more than your entire ride!

Everyone here on the list plays nice as Keith won't have it any other way. I
hope to see you out on the salt some day and I'll keep a beer warm for you!

Just want to say hi all.

My name is Lorcan Parnell from Falmouth, England. Been doing quarter miles
for 20 years or so and have recently done a couple of top speed events on a
ZX12R (205mph in 1.5 miles) , which has led me here.

My main interest is my turbo alcohol 750cc Kawasaki, which runs mid 8s in
the quarter and I'm looking at some land speed runs with it.

Look forward to gleaning lots of useful information here.

To the guy asking about lamda sensors, measure the resistance across the 2
heater wires (the two wires the same colour) and work out the draw from
there using V=IR. I run mine through a switched 12v supply, no relay. Mine
use about 2 amps at switch on to run the heater, the sensor itself uses no
current, it's just a thermocouple which generates a tiny voltage.
