Maybe it's a RC8.
And it's a stock LC8 at that. No, really.
LC8 the other is an RC8
And Kerry wrote this to me back in 2010:
The RC8 in the Super Enduro frame has worked well. A very easy, almost bolt in conversion. We are running just methanol currently and putting out as much horsepower as the 950's on 50% nitromethane!! It is less violent than a nitro burner but still puts out big numbers. We have had zero mechanical issues once we got it dialed in.
For your street/dual sport conversion you will only need to fabricate the front motor mount brackets. The rear pivot mount and lower rear motor mount are identical to the 950. We do not run a cooling system, obviously that will be something else you will have to tackle.
And that got me started.
I had emailed Kerry last year, to ask about their experience with changing to heavy duty clutch components. (resulted in snapped chains, so back to stock springs)
He indicated that the 200hp lc8/nitro powered bike is for the US and the RC8 was for the European tour, since Nitro is very controlled in Europe. The LC8 motor has no internal mods, other than what it took to add the Hilborne injector system. The LC8 motor is still running its original stock pistons/rods/crank/cyls/heads, after four years of racing it, no plans to rebuild for the next(2012) season.
