Had my V65 Sabre at the drag strip this summer, after alot of time trial
runs and setting the rear shock to 50 psi and the metzler to 18 psi .We put 98
octane fuel and fresh set of plugs in it.
With a combined weight of 741 pds we
managed the best ET of 11.18 at 122 mph and averaged between 11.28 to 11.37 at
119 to 121 mph with a RT time of .490 to .560 seconds.
This was before I found
the bike had a set of RC engineering cams in it.
Has any body else had a chance
to run a stock Sabre and get some accurate times?
With a combined weight of 741 lbs. that is very respectable.
If you need to
know anything about those cams,
I was the one who designed and tested them while
employed by RC Engr. 1980-87.
The RC965 grind is now my DRP Stage 2 grind which
are still available.
I might add that the RC Magna test bike with that cam
grind, a header,
RC clutch, and K&N filter would run high 10.70's all day.
