    Wow!! Congrats!! You are an awesome engineer!!!

    Just a question, is not easier to install an hidraulic system? A pump in the engine and a motor in the wheel?

    Already been done by yamaha/Bosch-Rexroth . One to one pump to hub, some how this is kept under grips with B-R and it is near impossible to get the exact hydraulic parts needed. I have looked into this and have a guy working on Bosch trying to get this together but its been pretty slow: well, really at a stand still. They did this years ago and there really was not much talk about it. I believe Ohlins was involved heavy with this also. Im sure someone here will come on and correct me if I am wrong. The issue with off the shelf units that you can source easily and affordably is that they are heavy and generally low speed high torque. We want high speed and super light.

    Took the SE out to test the new Renazco seat, yes it is definitely a huge improvement over my other custom seat!

    I have Yamaha 2trac with hydraulic front drive and i was able to buy the whole hydraulic system for 8000E spare part. You need also the front hub and spokes as they are custom. The kit adds 8 kg to the bike, 5 of which are in the front wheel. I can give you all the info from the hydraulic motors if you need it.

    More like too much time on my hands..... :lol3

    All I can say is it's been holding up great and it helps a ton.

    It may have been easier, but at the time, the only way I could get hydro parts was to buy an entire 2-track bike, no way. So I used what I could get and what I knew. Biggest PLUS, is I can get parts, if need be, in the USA.

    When doing research for this build over 4 yrs ago. Here were my thoughts:

    -If they hydo worked so well, and was so much better, why is it not around today? (4 yrs later - Still not so)

    -As for KTM AWD/2wd- They have a patent on an Electric version, that as far as I know has never seen the light of day. The only AWD KTMs I have found other than the Christini System was an Ohlins Hydro conversion - Like the Yamaha.

    -If it was that good, Why are the Erztberg racers using Christini on there KTMs and not the Hydro? (4 yrs later - Still Mechanical drive is used, NOT Hydro)

    - When I asked KTM about there AWD future, I got no reply, but they did say my bike was an interesting concept.

    40,000 miles later, I'm still glad I spent the time to build it. :freaky
