skins are in
The upper came with bolt-on winglets -- in order to deflect air away from your hands. However, these have small gaps where they are bolted on, and so I think they might be aerodynamically "dirty". They are easily removed for comparison sake. What do you think? The RHS (facing camera) has the winglet removed; the opposite still has it bolted on -- I can't see air flowing through that gap or over the smiles smoothly at all!
Of course, the most difficult part of the process will be putting it all away until next fall. I've committed to leaving the supermono be this year in order to focus on the new carburetor, the front forks, the slick tires, and the LWGP class itself. The bodywork and new seat confirguration, as well as the reingineered rear shock will have to wait!
