IT WAS AN AMBUSH OF PEARL HARBOR proportions. Throughout the '60s, '70s and early '80s, the motorcycle industry in America went from success to success, selling an ever-increasing number of bikes to an eager buying public. By 1984, $2 billion a year was being rung up through the sales of some 680,000 new motorcycles.

Airbox exoneration

Kevin Cameron
YEARS AGO, IT WAS CONSIDERED ESSENtial in any performance modification to rip off the airbox, filter(s) and intake-silencing gear, and then run either the bare carburetors or carbs adorned with “sock-type” individual filters. There was some basis for this prejudice, in that certain models were truly strangled by their airbox systems.

Your recent criticism of Britain’s Performance Bikes magazine in the “UPS & DOWNS” column of the December issue was unfair. It appears that in your opinion, motorcycle magazines should not display irresponsible behavior such as that shown by PB's kilt-clad, helmetless rider.

Dirt Digger clutch kits
Barnett’s Dirt Digger clutch kits are now available for most MX and off-road bikes. Claimed to eliminate clutch drag and chatter, the $75 Dirt Digger kits include Kevlar friction plates, steel drive plates and new compression springs. Barnett (9920 Freeman Ave., Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670; 310/941-1284) can provide additional information, or see your local motorcycle dealer.
Barnett
cam-de-greeing kit
Most riders never even consider setting the camshaft timing on their motorcycle unless they are installing a different camshaft. And that’s too bad, because there could be a few more horses available with the cam timing spot-on. Dale Walker’s Holeshot Performance Products (311 Chestnut St., Santa Cruz, CA 95060; 408/427-3625) has a kit that takes the mystery out of setting camshaft timing. The kit includes a 1-inch dial indicator, an extension, a magnetic base, a degree wheel and three sizes of positive stops. A video shows every step of the procedure for those who are inexperienced. Packaged in a foam-lined, hard-plastic storage case, the kit sells for $239 at dealers or directly from Holeshot Performance Products.
Barnett
Glide shocks
For owners of Harley Dyna Glidechassied bikes who want more glide in their ride, Progressive Suspension makes its new 4000 Series gascharged shock absorbers. These $220 shocks feature chromed springs and covers, velocity sensitive, six-stage automatic valving and a custom appearance, in standard or 1-inch-shorter lengths. Progressive shocks are available at local dealers or contact Progressive Suspension, 11129 G. Avenue, Hesperia, CA 92345; 619/948-4012.
Barnett
Tool Pack
$20
Making repairs, whether roadside or trailside, is much easier with an organized set of tools. Rev-Pack (P.O. Box 175, New Cuyama, CA 93254; 805/766-2454) can’t supply the tools, but can help with organization. Rev-Pack’s $20 Tool Pack features one large, deep pocket designed to hold a shop rag or owner’s manual; eight narrow pockets for holding wrenches, a socket set, screwdrivers, etc.; and four shallow pockets that are perfect for sparkplugs and other small items. The Tool Pack is available in an assortment of colors directly from Rev-Pack.
Barnett
Outlaw Graphics
$20
Customizing your helmet without breaking the bank is simple, as long as you like flames. Corbin’s Outlaw Graphics vinyl-tape helmet kit will adequately flame-cover a full-face helmet in any of eight color choices. The $20 Outlaw Graphics kits are available directly from Corbin (11445 Commercial Parkway, Castroville, CA 95012; 800/538-7035) or from dealerships and accessory shops that carry Corbin products.
Barnett
Pro Option Needle Jetting Kit
$30
Mikuni's TMS-38 two-stroke carburetor is a simple design that eliminates the need for a pilot jet. But it can be simpler yet. Installing the Pro Option Needle Jetting Kit eliminates the need for a main jet. Five needles are supplied in the kit. More precise fuel metering, quicker throttle response and easier engine tuning are the claimed results. The kit sells for $30 at motorcycle and accessory dealers. For more information, contact Mikuni American Corporation, 8910 Mikuni Avenue, Northridge, CA 91324-3496

147-horsepower Daytona 1200 sportbike
Alan Cathcart
TRIUMPH CELEBRATED THE third anniversary of its rebirth in appropriate fashion. It chose the Birmingham Motorcycle Show to debut its new 147-horsepower Daytona 1200 sportbike. The machine, billed as Triumph’s “ultimate expression of road sports,” is based on the same tubular/backbone frame as the rest of the line, and on the same modular engine design.

THE IDEA OF ANY NEW model from MZ, of what used to be East Germany, seems pretty farfetched. The idea that any new MZ could be a star of an international motorcycle show is even farther fetched, rather like a Fiat outshining a Ferrari. Yet that is precisely what happened at England’s Birmingham Show.

Ducati is having the sort of trouble other manufacturers wish they had: It is unable to match the demand for its machines. The company’s Bologna, Italy, factory is scheduled to build 14,800 machines in 1993. Of that number, 3000 will be M900 “Monstros,” increased from an initial schedule of 1000 because of interest in the VTwin musclebike.

The K1 sportbike, using the old-style K100 motor, rounds out BMW’s four-cylinder assortment, all of which are equipped with BMW’s Paralever single-sided swingarm and ABS. ABS also is standard on all three K75s this year.

JAWA, A NAME THAT ONCE was familiar to American motorcyclists, continues to dig itself out of Eastern Europe’s economic disaster. The Czech company has at last cranked up production of the Jawa 350, a rather ordinary runabout that uses an aircooled, two-stroke Twin from an engine family that has been in production for at least 20 years.

IF YOU'RE IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW SPORTBIKE, we've got good news. With surprisingly few exceptions, the level of performance and reliability offered by today's crop of sporting machines is unmatched in motorcycle history. If the sportbike you just gotta have happens to be a 750cc repli-racer, then you’re really in luck, because three manufactures have stacked the deck with all-new or nearly new offerings for 1993.

THE SHORT, UNHAPPY LIFE OF HARLEY-DAVIDSS XR-1000

DAVID JOHNSON
RUMORS WERE DRIFTING like smoke in the late 1970s, blown by the winds of desire: A street-legal XR-750 flat-tracker was coming from Harley-Davidson. To enthusiasts, the idea seemed a natural. The alloy XR had proven itself in the rigors of racing, and since the tooling and many of the hard parts needed for the conversion already existed, producing a street XR-750 should be just a matter of fabricating enough brackets and running enough wires to accommodate a horn, a headlight, a taillight and other street necessities.

THE POOR RECEPTION OF HARLEY-Davidson's 1983 XR-1000 may have erased the prospect of a factory XR-750 roadbike, but that doesn't mean alternatives aren’t available. Bill Bartels, owner of Bartels’ Harley-Davidson (4141 Lincoln Blvd., Marina del Rey, CA 90292; 310/823-1112), has fashioned his own street-going version of Harley’s championship-winning dirt-track bike, a machine he calls the XLR1200, and he has copies for sale.

INTEREST IN KAWASAKI'S NEW-FOR-'93 KLX650R, the first big-bore four-stroke dirtbike from Kawasaki, has been enormous. Would it be good enough to challenge Honda's popular XR600, and maybe even go toe-to-toe with the Husqvarna 610 for King of the Thumpers honors?

P11 BAJA RACER
WHEN NORTON MADE DIRTBIKES

Don Canet
IF A BIG-BORE OFF-ROAD THUMPER seems out of character for Kawasaki, consider that in 1967, Norton, builder of the ultimate British road-burners, stunned the U.S. market by unleashing a 750cc dirtbike. Called the P11, it was a minimally street-legal Twin developed by Norton’s West Coast distributor, ZDS Motors, for desert racing and trail riding.

CLASSIC COVER

ONE OF A COLLECTIBLE motorcycle’s worst enemies is dust, which can work its way into a stored machine’s nooks and crannies and cause havoc when it comes time to polish the thing for a Sunday-morning ride or a classic-bike concours. Steve Storz of Storz Performance (239 S. Olive St., Ventura, CA 93001; 805/641-9540) owns a classic bike or two, and is well aware of the problem.

RIDE LONG ENOUGH AND YOU’LL EVENtually dent an exhaust pipe or muffler. A dented exhaust not only looks bad, it can drastically effect horsepower. Additionally, the cost of replacement exhaust parts can be outrageously high. Not to worry.

THE BIG SWITCH
Four years after Terry Vance's retirement, Byron Hines rediscovers the thrill of drag racing—from the saddle of an FJ1200 Pro-Stocker.

ON A COOL, FALL EVENING in September, 1992, at the NHRA Sears Craftsman Nationals in Topeka, Kansas, a historic—some would say shocking—event took place. After advancing to the final round of Pro-Stock competition, Byron Hines—one-half of motorcycle drag racing’s most successful duo—paddled his racebike to the staging area, heated its Goodyear slick with a violent burnout, inched toward the line and, as the lights flashed yellow, yellow, green, launched himself into the darkness with a howl that could be heard for miles.

Despite reports to the contrary, Freddie Spencer’s deal to ride a Frenchbacked Yamaha during the 1993 500cc grand prix season is 100 percent secure. Reportedly, Fast Freddie’s deal with the Christian Sarron-managed team was contingent upon securing a main sponsor for the season, but a source close to Spencer informs us that the French government has guaranteed the team’s backing for 1993, and that a sponsor—perhaps a French TV network—will be found.

My Honda CBR900RR is a great bike and has plenty of power, but I’d like to change the pipe and maybe the air cleaner to “open 'er up” a little. A friend tells me that I shouldn’t do this because the new pipe will mess up the tuning of the carbs. Is this so?
