well, the time has come to give the old girl some new pep. met my engine builder in yuma the other day and passed her off.

the plan is...

1) lightened, balanced crank w/ carrillo rod and angular contact main bearings (stock 78mm stroke)
2) balanced counter-balancer
3) cylinder wall re-hone (hopefully stay at stock, if not bore to 102)
4) new piston rings
5) port and polished head
6) new over-sized kibblewhite valves (see how big of valves will fit)
7) custom cam
8) all new seals and bearings, rebuilt h2o pump
9) bore carb to at least 41mm (hopefully 43mm) w/ modifications
10) new over-sized aluminum radiators w/ ASI hoses

hoping that the bike will be stronger, more durable, and run much smoother than before. lightening and balancing the crank will be the big part. hopefully loose a couple lbs. of rotating mass which will have a profound affect upon the handling and characteristics of the engine.

not sure what the final price tag is gonna be, but it's not gonna be cheap. with that said though, it will still be cheaper in the long run than buying a new bike and outfitting it, and bringing it up to this level. plus, i've always wanted a rally engine.....

Cut7 is doing all the work and so far i haven't been able to find anyone who has anything bad to say about the guy other than he can be a little slow. that i don't mind, it means he's taking his time and doing it right. he claims that i should easily see the same numbers, or better, than his built 613 RFS and the engine should be under less stress. he claims his bike ran 31 ft/lbs at 3000 RPM, 54 ft/lbs at 6200 RPM, and 73HP at the rear wheel at 8800 RPM. sounds good to me...!

hopefully i will have the engine back within a few weeks. once its back in and ready to run i will post the final numbers.

laters,

laramie

This here is pure bragging. Not appreciated. We need pics. And graphs. And more pics. And some more specs would do. M.

Back in the saddle

A broken wrist has kept me off the bike since July, yep July, well the "spring" weather hasn't helped either. So Saturday I went for a spin to find a lake and test some of the upgrades I installed this winter.

All water flows downhill (downvalley)


I thought I'd crest the hill and see water! Nope, not yet. (I swear I was not moving when I took the pic).


Ah ha, water!


That's better. Still not what I'd call a lake, the search continues (when I have more daylight).


Always a welcome sight


This is both headlights on


This is both headlights and two Trail Tech SCMR16 HID flood lights on (with clear covers) Much better!


The next morning I found one tiny drip of oil and discovered this.


Not to worry I happened to have parts on hand, all better!


She's good to go. I'll post pics from Monday later

Man, that should be a sweet engine Laramie! Do you have any idea on budget or did you tell Tom to go crazy?

i told Tom to make sure it runs, and runs forever. since we arent stroking or boring (hopefully) the engine shouldnt be that stressed. with all new bearings, better materials, and everything balanced i hope its all worth it.

as for price, well, its not cheap. i will keep that little gem in my pocket until i get the engine back and run it. hopefully my smile will justify the expense. then i will post the final number. i don't want to scare anyone off....

Mclaridie, if you're referring to this statement:

"She's good to go. I'll post pics from Monday later"

It's just my poor use of punctuation. I meant that I will post pictures from Monday at a later date or time.

If you're a hipster and end a conversation with "later" it's shorthand for "I'll see you later" or something like that.

Later,
Gerst

It's too bad you didn't post photos of your seal change job.

I am probably mistaken but I don't think that there is one in the index.
