hello:
"Since there was plenty of space to work with the exhaust removed, we took this opportunity to attach a new, race-proven, Apex Mfg oil heat exchanger. (Soon to be released for public sale) This item is a must have for track-ridden Triumphs, as it is much stronger than the original piece and will withstand constant high RPM operation. "

It's supersport legal, but not supersport spec, where head work / race gaskets are allowed.

Unless I missed something, the article said that 90% of the work was done at the racetrack. It is possible that the other 10% means that there was some engine work done prior to shipping the bike to the track for the assembly of the rest of the pieces. You never know. I figured that there would have to be some engine work done to be competitive at that level of racing, so I just assume that the remaining 10% referred to that.

It has been brought to my attention, that this very bike, followed my best friend for a session. Which I didn't know! He is the bike behind him, in the video.

Hey guys, I'm the one with the bike. It does have spec AMA SS engine components too. I just never mentioned it! All I'm looking to do is race WERA next season with it to get my foot in the door in racing. I didn't do to bad this year considering I had my first track day in early June, and got my first street bike (ever!) in May, and got up to Advanced pace!
