From my... "This isn't right" ...post.
Was doing some work on the "stock" Blaster and decided to throw in some C/F reeds. Well you should have seen the look on my face when I found this.
First set is from "stock" B
Second set is from one of my Mods
Time to place a wanted ad in the classifieds.
...and yes, I did check the crank, etc. Everything else is just fine.
Edit: Forgot pics
Now it won't let me post pics.
See other post below for pics.

going to take the red WR out this weekend.. seems the scallopers/scallops have tapered off a bit, so I'm going to have some fun!! Will be tuneing this and then GPS it to see what it does over the stock WR...
pressed a wr crank together thursday, that i bought cheap, adding new wiseco wrist pins and bearings...done in preparation of assembling the speedsteer engine,(a totally radical motor as compaired to the normal WR engine setup)... I have to find a set of v blocks to check this for true..will prob, have buy a set of the magnetic type off ebay.. seems no one does this much themself's anymore, to be able to borrow a set.. (I must be old school .. lol...)

Weather was ok...although it was blistering hot up there...and so humid that speeds were way down...but still had a blast! Scotty was the only guy that showed up so we hooked up and rode both days. Skis ran ok....although it was extremely hot!
Raider ran good...and can't complain
Blaster....ran good...and upset I didn't ride it more!

Well...bearing for trailer went bad...so I fixed that on Saturday. Found out that day that my engine was dumping fuel inside of that bike. Turns out that the tie straps were not able to hold the fuel sealed enoungh. So, I got some screw clamps and clamped down every fuel line. It worked out as I have not seen any fuel dumping in the engine bay at all.
Went on the water yesterday, was being flagged down by women left right and center for a ride on the WADADLI Raider. Ended up picking up a real hot little sexy thing.......and it was game on from there when we were secluded on a little island off of the coast. One more...thx to the raider....
However, on a different note....met a bunch of 4 stroke 1100, 1200, and 1300......tore their ass up.....Raced a single engine cigarette boat about 21 ft......busted his ass off the line, but his top end was a bit too much for me to handle.
All in all.....I had a blast.....It was worth every hour that I put into the bike and every penny too!!! I noticed that after riding...when I have reached home....I feel very happy and relaxed.....I think tat if I had to spend money on finding peace.....I rather give to to the raider over a shrink!!!
