Certainly don't see something like that everyday. Anyone know what engine?
Looks like a Yamaha RD engine, RD350LC YPVS?
Thinking Banshee instead.
I think they´re basically the same engine, same bore x stroke. The sidecases don´t look like an RD/LC so you might be right. Even in bog stock form they were pretty lairy engines, that one doesn´t look remotely stock.
come out Sunday, maybe you'll see it in person . . . http://vintagebikeoc.com/gallery/jun21/DSC_8112
OK, its in German, but w/ help the of google you get the information you want
That's gonna stop awesome with the old stock brakes and front forks lol.
Here's a wild one:
A Turbo CBX!
He's been riding it for 30 years and when asked what he was most proud of, he said: "Not killing myself".
Great story and videos HERE
That's a wonderful machine, and hats off for the longevity of its existence.
Carb's and Turbos are not the best bed fellows, it appears the outer right cylinder may be running a touch lean by the image of the header.
That's where being able to tailor fuel exactly to the needs of each cylinder is a nice (but admittedly more complex) feature of F.I. and individual injectors per cylinder.
Turbo heat is a killer on stock header materials, many have found 321SS a nice product when you build your own.
I think the Banshee was bigger than 350cc, which only means that the front brake on that bike is woefully inadequate for serious road work.
Looking at the link above it is a Banshee engine bored out to 472cc making 100hp. Front tyres are going to last a long time.
That expansion chamber is really fat, maybe 7"-8". How does that affect the powerband? More torque, less torque, peakier, or what?
^ Do you suppose they use wax with 'Carnauba hard shell' finishing?
