i'm quite a long way away but it's the scene of some very, very happy memories for me. i did three west raynham 500km although the last two were simply called the 4 hour becaus egreg page kept taking 15 minutes off the course record every year!

i believe there is a kind of club that meets and does SM practice there. correct?

Re: changing up a gear

Hi, Dale.

Isn't it small deformations in the shift lever? Was it necessary to weaken the lever to get sufficient response from the strain gauge? I assume you glued it somewhere close to the base of the lever.

Do you know how the system works in general? Is it 5V to supply the gauge, a bridge to compensate the temperature dependency and a switch that trigs at a certain level which shortcuts the ignition?

Sincerely,
Mikael

Hi Mikael,
Such is not new technology as drag racers have been using similar hardware for the past three decades. What is unique regarding "Starlane" is its self contained and compact design. (ie read fragile and expensive)

The "Starlane" strain gage must be calibrated to each individual lever and is susceptible to damage. I simply figured I could accomplish the same objective using a more basic approach.

In my humble opinion and for what it may be worth: "Without compromise race bikes should remain simple". No Bling Bling if you will. I modified a drag bike system (Holeshot, MPS, etc.) to operate on a 9 volt battery via a spring loaded linkage. I did such as the complexity and expense of a "Starlane" system seemed overkill and potentially troublesome regarding our intended application.

Just to recount a story,
I too had the problem with a burred selector shift plate in my '02 FE400 and ended up replacing the offending item with a "spare" I still had from my '98 FE400.
Also changed oil every 500kms because I could feel the gears becoming harder to shift as I got to 400kms or so.

Feel like I'm trying to teach you to suck eggs Taffy; sorry.

Problem solved

I never had a shifter binding problem after swapping out the original plate, so it certainly appeared to do the job.
