Frank, you will be interested to read that we are taking a T500 to the Land Speed Record run in Australia next year.
The land speed record runs in Oz are run on lake Gairdner in South Australia, a large salt lake like Bonneville except nearer sea level.
Now to work on the bike and motor, we will be using some race porting and pipes.
One weak point on the T500 is the clutch, we will have to explore options to the standard clutch.
I have heard that Barnett clutch plates are the go, but I would like to also see if a clutch off a newer more powerful later model Suzuki might fit, such as a GSX600 or GSXR750.
Here is a pic of Lake Gairdner....
