The engines are top notch. Dont even front the first time you ride it. Shit can get out of hand quick. Dont forget to rotate the engine with no fire several times before you start it, then ride it like you stole it to break it in. Use rotella T or a good break in oil. No synthetic.

Make sure the valves are properly adjusted

Awesome.

Cool man. When I was in my shed last night I noticed that the exhaust that I have on the XR70 is a piranha, way better quality than the switch was. The more I see of this build the more I'm thinking that the Daytona might get pushed back for the CT.

Any pics of said exhaust?

A buddy local who is known to build a handful of big bore CT bikes said the 140 Piranha has charging issues. I'm thinking of doing LED bulbs all around to lower amp/watt consumption. I've been on the search for a solution but haven't found anything appealing yet.

Maybe I'll redo my 90 after I enjoy it a little bit more :)

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Had some time tonight to go out and test fit a few things. Mainly the engine to the frame. Fits perfect without any modifications. I did notice the new carb has only one input verses the two outputs the gas tank has. There's also no fuel shutoff like the stock carb has built in. I'll need to find an inline fuel shutoff. I also suspect I'll need to get an auxiliary tank if I want to ride more than 20 miles. Anyway. Pics!



For those curious about the build quality of the engine. It feels equally as solid if not better than the stock CT engine. Everything fits where it's suppose too. No strange burrs and grind marks. It is raw however. I do expect it to yellow a little as it ages. Thinking of hitting it with that high temp 2 part engine epoxy paint for the case and powdering the covers.

yeah it does look nice. I might have to pick up another frame and build a big bore and leave my current one stock. Are you putting street tires on it?

This one is getting a flat track looking tire. More geared for street/urban. I'll be getting a second frame and building another solely for the dirt. Most likely using the stock engine.

Took the forks apart and cleaned them up. That's the last of the tear down before powder.


Also found this oil cooler hidden in a parts box of random car bits from years ago. Should work perfect.
