Good lookin ride there Blackburn !! That is a nice lookin 'R' decal too   ;)  It looks much better there than sitting on my desk.

Its nice to see some passion and enthusiasm back with these old machines. Its also nice to see some build threads back in the forums.

Keep up the great work  :)

Looks great so far. I really like that ESR cylinder. For a carb I would just run a 38mm carb either the new short body or regular 38. Keep the updates coming.

Thanks guys, I'm doing what I can with what I have.  Its been a dream to have this machine since I was a little boy when my parents took me to a atv race.  My build is pretty boring to most of the others going on through here but it's slowly getting where I'd like it to be.  I plan to get an ESR pipe yo match the cylinder and porting.  New rear brakes in the works...little by little...snail speed

A little polishing and decal that I'm probably over excited about

Great looking build!  I'm curious, what did you use to polish your shrouds?

Very nice!

Here's the jetting I started with on my 350 build with 38 PWK carb

DEG Needle - Middle Clip position
52 pilot
180 main
1.5 turns on air screw

Those are really rich settings and I know you'll end up going leaner, but those are safe to start with

Thanks hawgpilot, lots of metal polish out there but I use Blue Magic metal polish that I pick up at Ace hardware.  Just that and a couple of clean towels

That sounds great, thanks for your input.  I always try to start out rich on jetting but definitely needed a base line.  Thank you

I thought about this today and figured I'd post it. Very good info on jetting.

Thanks, I have seen that on Duncan's site before but forgot all about it.  Ill do some research and figure something out.  We currently have about 16" of snow on the ground so I have a little while.  Still deciding on a pipe, would like an ESR trx7 to match the porting on the 330 kit, anyone know where I could find one?  I'm awaiting a reply from esr but looking at their site I'm not even sure if he's still making them?  Honestly I haven't heard much about the trx7 pipe so I don't even know if that's my best option.

I emailed ESR last week and he stated he would have pipes available in 2-3 weeks. Iím waiting for one too...

So I spoke with Eddie, and will probably go with the trx5, he mentioned I didn't need the big bore pipe.  I have recently picked up some RPM front hubs, and a 40.5mm TMX carb, gotta clean those up a bit.  Waiting for a little more warmth in the garage, I haven't yet set up my wood burner for it yet.  Just need to build a heat exchanger...and I just bought a new project...

My "new" f250.  Not really a project, needs nothing, almost zero rust on frame.

Did he mention when the pipes would be in stock?

Thanks, and he said 3-5 weeks, I think I spoke with him 2 weeks ago? May have been 3.  He assured me no need to place an order but I saw his site said pipes are coming, place orders....I don't want to miss out on one but I also talked to him about making a works finished pipe...much further out.
