HERESY! WITCHCRAFT! AN ABOMINATION BEFORE GOD!!!


Nah I guess EFI is acceptable in this case. ;D

Amazing work!

The ECU looks tiny compared to a Microsquirt, if the software is anything like the Micro-S setup you'll have it running in no time.

A few years ago I EFi'd a Chinese C90 knockoff engine using a Micro-S setup, just for fun, do you have any plans to go forced induction??

Hey gents,

Thanks for the commpliments! they're to much.... I'm just lucky to have acces to all the equipment.... That opportunity started the project in the first place.

@ducatiboy:
The first start will be exciting for sure ;D starting on fabrication of the exhaust system this week (with ducati monster S2R silencers :) ) so the first try to start should not take months from now.

@TwinPlug:
No plans for "forcing" mor air into the engine. I'll keep it normally aspirated. First see what EFI will do.

Best regards,

Loek

Hi,

Here we are again. Started the exhaust fabrication and it worked out quite well ;D or at least I'm happy with it. Two headers are exactly same length and to get that right was at least " a challenge".
Exhaust is a 2 into 1 into 2 system.

Front header:


And again:


Back header part 1:


And on the bike:


And again on the bike:


Clearance is tight but it just fits ;D.... The back header is a two piece otherwise mounting is almost impossible. And there is almost no straight piece 8) in the back header.
There will be some sort of silencer between the two headers and the pipes to the silencers. that's the goal for this week. Then welding and mounting.

Best regards,

Loek

Beautiful work as usual.  Can you share more on the mufflers?  I love the look - were these custom fabbed?  Also, you wouldn't be interested in making a second set of headers for sale, would you?  Loving this build!
