With 4 months of winter I wish I was removed from here.
Oh I will for sure.
I’ll probably put at least a few hundred miles on it with only the gas tank and seat to sit on.
I have a lot of tuning ahead and also want to keep an eye on if anything is going to fall off.
Finally put the rings on the last piston and dropped the cylinder onto it.
Need to get a crows foot 12mm so I can torque the cylinders down now.
And one more of the pipes....
Because I love to look at two stroke pipes
Great chance you would not be who you are with out those long Indiana nights...how did Tom Petty sing that...some thing about growing up right with the Indiana boys... more than they ever seen..
those pipes are pure sex.
interesting that the silencers are of different lengths.
any reason behind that? or just to make em the same exit length? the cone segments to my eye from across the country and on a computer screen look pretty close to the same.
Short silencer on top pipes so I do not have to cut out body work on tail
Pipes will stick out of stock holes....no cutting on this bike.
A little more progress with the engine.
Got the cranks properly timed, generator mounted, new oil lines installed, and the clutch put back on. Still waiting on my tool from motion pro to torque down the cylinders.
Awesome thread @busa1300 !
Put my clutch cover on, and put in a new oil seal in my water pump.
But I seriously fucked up when I went to put the pump on.....
.....the last couple turns of the screws and I heard a snap. Initially freaking out thinking I cracked the housing, I pulled the pump and found I snapped off a drive tooth. Found the tooth, and gear is easy to replace, except.....they are no longer available, and only used on the RZV/RZ/RD500
It's only money....https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RZ500-RD500-RZV500-Yamaha-coolant-water-pump-gear-/223226522444
Thanks for the link
A guy on the RZRD forum told me about the same one
Yea, it's an expensive lesson....but it looks like the only one available right now in the world
And it will be on it's way to me hopefully very soon
Carried the engine over onto the table.
I'll block it up a little so I can maneuver the frame around it, and get the engine bolted in......still waiting on my 12mm torque wrench attachment first.
I've got one in my tool box at work. Works a charm and fits everything.
Those pipes are the cock for Dolly, that thing is gonna be sweet
We must hear that bike when you're finished, please..
Cool, I just bought one. saves a few dollars on a crows foot set and more versatile.
I will for sure.
At least one when I first fire it up, then I hope another when I think I have it running right on a dyno.
Here is the only vid of it running, right after I got it out of the box and together.
You should save the broken gear and have it reverse engineered by someone familiar with gears. If you have a CAD file, a CNC shop can make them in one of the modern engineering plastics.
If you like strokers.....
Here is my 1996 VJ23 on the dyno on one of about 25 runs....the last street stroker ever developed.
After 7 months of production, Suzuki's agreement with the Japanese government (Kyoto Agreement) saw the end of any more development.
And production stopped........forever.....
Not the best run, but the only one I have on record....
