Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials Canceled, Team Updates—We Have a Year to Regroup

By Bandit with photos by Wrench, and illustrations from the Atomic Dice Team
This has been a very strange weather pattern year for the Bonneville Salt Flats. One day it can be a mess and three days later it's ready to race. I spoke to Bill Woods yesterday and the salt has been under constant investigation. It rained again last Friday (August 14), and yesterday the team members studied the salt conditions.

BONNEVILLE 2015 CHAPTER 7: JIMS FAT FIVE Installed in the Salt Torpedo

Giving the JIMS Gear Set a Home for the Salt

By Kent Weeks with photos by Holly Weeks the magnificent
I have installed a few gear sets but I think no matter how many times you have done it it’s always a good idea to check out the instructions before getting started. Some manufacturers products are slightly different from each other and sometimes changes have been made to the install process so if nothing else a quick read though never hurts.

Rebuilt for the Long Road by the Devil

By Bandit with photos by the Devil and his elf Holly
The Devil sent me these shots of this super clean Paughco framed chopper, a classic example. It also contains a BDL primary system mated to a Baker 6-in-a-4-speed transmission with a tapered main-shaft, connected to a 93-inch S&S saved Shovelhead engine. I was intrigued.

Typhoon Twist Billet Carburetor from Carl's Speed Shop

Amazing Fuel Delivery for our Salt Torpedo

By Wrench with photos by Wrench and Carl's Crew
This article was published in Easyriders in 1995, but it’s still applicable today. At the time it covered the new Carl Morrow Typhoon billet Carburetor. Since then there has been some tweaking and Carl installed a Thunderjet on this Typhoon for the Salt Torpedo we are building with a 135-inch JIMS twin cam and a JIMS heavy-duty 5-speed transmission.

When removing the transmission from its case, the mainshaft bearing race must be removed and replaced. Late model bikes with the new style primary case, 2006 Dyna and all Big Twins 2007 to present, have had problems with the inner primary bearing and mainshaft inner race failing prematurely.
