Bandit four cylinder...wide, CR500 swingarm....skinny. Hafta build a jack shaft to get power from wide to narrow.

Ever try to grind something that is hardened? It doesn't work. Starting with untempered sprockets gives us something easy to work with and cost effective. I would ruin the temper even if I could machine a hardened sprocket because I need to weld it to the splined hub.

I can't seem to find 520 sprockets to fit an 11 spline 3/4" shaft that are hardened and 14 tooth, otherwise I'd go that route.

Don't worry, I'll post pics when I have it designed and built, it's kind of confusing to try and explain in type.

My cbr has a narrow ktm swingarm. I got by using a spaced rear sprocket and by machining down the cs sprocket. Aligns perfect now. Probably had to go 1/8" out in the rear and maybe 1/4" in on the cs. Was a bitch to machine off the flange on the cs but a lot easier than designing a jack shaft

I'm an inch off, considered hacking up the swingarm...too many problems that direction, it'd hit the subframe if it got any wider.

I'm starting with a jack shaft for a go kart, I paid a ton of money for it, but it's well made from a chunk of billet with good sized bearings. The only snag was figuring out 520 sprockets and I finally have that figured out.

Man, things have sure changed since I started this project. Gonna try to scrape up some cash for a LithiumIon battery and an LED headlight.


Sorry it's not gonna be a chopper, Garthe.

No worries, I'd follow any project your building.

Got the repaired side cover back on and the XRR sprocket fitted yesterday.

I want to nail down the seat mounting, but need handlebars before I do, so I ordered up some Buell Ulysses bars.

Renthal has some FatBars with 4.5" of height, might not be enough and I don't like tall risers. I used to own a Uly and liked the sweep and all of that, plus they have 6.5" of height, so we'll start with those.

Here's some pics of the splined hub and jack shaft assembly.









Machining and handlebars will happen next week, then we can make some real progress again.

Getting closer...




Got the handlebars today, glad I went with the Buell bars, they were the most outrageous highest rise longest sweep I could think of that would lessen the reach from where I want the seat.

Wasted last weekend going to look at bikes, but I got to see JimmytheHogs bike for some inspiration.




I really, really want to do the 8" race light, but might have to settle for the lower priced torch.

Toss a $25 HID from DDM tuning in the X2 and it's bright as hell. That's what I'm running on the CBR and it puts out a great pattern with a good clip, very impressive

I'm not mocking you, larryboy!

But you gotta take a seat to make a stand!





This seat is too slim.



But this one is Just Right! said little red riding hoodlum.



Can ya handle it?



Glad to get over there for a visual progress report.
