Phil, Nova made a close gear ratio gearbox which works perfect for EG 500 gamma.

I raced my H2 on production races on the 70s with a SMAC (Eric Offensdadt shop former GP rider on K triple) close gear ratio.
Was great for racing but for road use was an other story as you didn't need on road a long first gear.

You could say wasn't legal on production races and wasn't. But in an other hand the only top Guzzi 850 Le Mans was 998cc with non standart pipes, the fast Ducati 900 SS had Verlicchi frame which looked as standart frame excepted they were lighter and stronger Very Happy, Laverda 1000 cc had non standart cam-shafts Razz to say notthing about the naughty guys (mostly H2 racers) who raced with Avgas which wasn't allowed too LMFAO

We were young and we had fun Wink

JP.............I wish I could ride that Gamma...........I'll bet that's a fun bike..............6 speed gamma is probably well suited to a close ratio transmission.................a 5 speed street H2, probably not so much  Neutral

OK..........sounds like everybody "had some tricks up their sleeves"............so to speak..............I think Rod H2 said they were very strict in Australia and would really inspect the bikes closely...........well, what the hell, seems like you were doing what had to be done...........I hope you some on the H2............and you guys used some AVGAS\Race Gas  Very Happy .................I bought 15 gallons today.............it's good stuff

Been watching 24 hours at Leman's on and off today.............interesting how it does not totally dark till real late (like 11PM)............I guess because you guys are so far north...................it's just now becoming day break over there

Looks like Toyota LMP1 cars have had some bad luck with their hybrid system   Confused .............(yes, it's new technology, I think I like all motor cars better)..........seems the LMP 2 are faster top speed.............they were talking about cars in the 70's hitting 250 MPH on the long straightaways............like 220 MPH now

THX Phil  salut
