Title: Post a pic of your motorcycle as it sits
Post by: RobbyD on Jun 15, 2016, 20:16:32
Seen this on another forum but with cars and thought it was cool

Post up a pic of how you bike sits.  Head out to the garage, basement shop, etc and snap a pic.  Simple as that!!

I'll start

How do you like the 1100? I was looking at that and a vfr800

I am enjoying it. I sometimes wonder if I shouldn't have gotten the R Nine T instead though, as the community and aftermarket for the 1100 seems based on the geezer cruiser crowd. I bought this in the hopes of having a cafe inspired modern bike. I still love the bike, just wish I could do more with it. I suppose custom is the best option no matter what.

Thats really good info, that was my exact though process. I figured if I sell a bike or two it would be nice to work on something rust free for once!

Just rolled her up in to the shop for the night.

Knocked out about 250 miles through the Ozarks this afternoon. Managed to hang with the sportbikes my friends were on. Not sure if I was doing good, or they ride badly.

here some pics of my bikes "as they sit".
Three are running (2000 Kawasaki ZRX1100, 2009 Harley Xr1200, and 1975 Suzuki T500)
Two are not currently running (2005 Yamaha TTR90, and 1975 CB200T)

The TT-R90 is almost ready to go. I ordered about $350 worth of parts from partzilla to get her done by this weekend.

71 CB450 that will eventually be a street tracker. This is my first attempt at doing anything mechanical or fabrication. Been reading through the forums here for awhile and doing my research. I'm sure I will have questions. Luckily I have local friends that to full custom and restoration to motorcycles and cars to lean on and borrow tools. Gonna start practicing welding next weekend.

A 305 Honda Dream that can do the ton..........? I have a spare Super Hawk cam that has been installed in a dream head. It has been reclocked for a 360 degree firing order. The project needs a minimum of 28 HP to reach the ton, with old, fat overweight rider 35?

It's a ZX-14 turbo, wasn't allowed to run faster than 10.00 or over 150 mph. Blew it on both, now have to get a license according to NHRA. At 100 degree temp it ran a 9.80 @156 mph, with a poor launch.

I am enjoying it. I sometimes wonder if I shouldn't have gotten the R Nine T instead though, as the community and aftermarket for the 1100 seems based on the geezer cruiser crowd. I bought this in the hopes of having a cafe inspired modern bike. I still love the bike, just wish I could do more with it. I suppose custom is the best option no matter what.
Dude, I think your bike looks GREAT. I think "cafe inspired modern" fits. I'd ride it. I think I'd change the bars though. That's it. Lol.

Is that a 72 GT750 by any chance?  If so they are the best looking barrels IMHO.  They are not hard to port but take a really long time to take out all that surplus metal.

Oddly enough, that seat is exactly the shape I was aiming for with my last GT750 project that morphed into a Dunstall and still isn't finished.

Yep the closer one is a 72 the farther one is a 74. Got the 74 for the cases (the 72 threw a chain and busted the case) and the 72 came with the bike. The seat was done by the PO who wanted to cafe the bike but lost interest and sold it.

Great pics!   Some of those looked alot like New Mexico.

stock 72 is most collectible but the least useful because there are so many parts that changed over the years.  If you have a choice, use the 72 barrels and 74 crank but with 74 on pistons.  You can't mix and match pistons and cranks across designs. 72 inlet manifolds are more like normal Mikuni intakes and are easier to change to larger carbs.   Late (BS) carbs and early VM32 flow about the same and supposedly either can handle around 100 HP. 

Transmissions changed in 75 and again in 76 and 77, but all will work fine on the street.

She's been sitting like that for around 5 years... I sold some bikes and moved one out of my bike shed and into the warehouse to make room to work on her again. I'll be cleaning the shed up later tonight and starting on the bike soon.

That is actually my plan. The 74 has everything but the tranny in the cases (so crank, pistons, con rods, cylinder, head). Going to use the 74 case and crank and con rods, new over bore Pistons, and 72 cylinder.

What's up maritime? Probably no Barber for me this year. My son and I made the ride to Birmingham a couple of weeks ago though. We went through the museum, watched some racing and ate a fine lunch with Kiley. The problem with the festival is that it always takes place on the same weekend that we have Shrimp Fest here. And I'm in the tourist business so that's the last big weekend we get.

I'm still trying to make Barber. It'll be last minute if I can. We need to hire someone in the next few weeks to cover front desk and billing. If that happens I might be able to sneak away.

According to my GPS, about a 49 mph get-off in the middle of heavy I-40 traffic downtown Knoxville last month. Luckily no contact with anything but the asphalt. My fault, shouldn't have been there. Looked to merge right and then when I looked forward the SUV in front was getting real big real fast. I must have grabbed too much brake (front or rear I don't know). Stopped tumbling looking up at sky in the middle of three lanes. Bike ended up (according to GPS again, I was a bit out of it) off the road in an exit median. Ground both engine guards and rear skid bars down, ground lots of plastic, bent a radiator. I was lucky (and ATGATT) to only bruise a lot and crack my left wrist.

Rode her home today and it felt SO GOOD to be back on 2 wheels.

That is actually what got me wanting a goldwing!! And i really dig the tubework around the seat area! That and the kaleidoscope build i like alot! Can't seem to find a decent cheap tank...I'll definitely keep you in mind if I find a tank, I was thinking building one that fits under the false one....wouldn't hold alot of fuel though.

Bit of a pig, but a cheap ride and serves its purpose. Hard bags can be added in about 10 minutes if going on the road. PITA to put her in dry storage and so she got a new dress the other day...$20 at Walmart.

moved on a little further ,but have a minor prob thats giving me a major head ache ,all up and running using a ugly oversized triumph injection tank complete with built in fuel pump ,but going to run harley slit tanks ,but cant get it to run using an inline pump ,is it the pressure on the inline the one ive brought is 3-6 psi ?????????????


Most FI systems require around 40 psi, I believe. Auto parts stores have them, but the are around $100. Had to replace one on a GoldWing SEi once.

Bosh inline 70psi, get a regulator and make sure to ground it from the battery... you can find them for $80 US here. You can also use an inline fuel regulator that dumps back to the tank and is recommended for these pumps to operate cooler.

The motor work may take forever, as it'll likely need a full rebuild so I'm going to go ahead and build the complete roller while chipping away at the lump.

The leather Yamaha coat is my favorite. Got it from Neil in Bama a few years back. The blue one was a gift. Fits well, but I've never worn it on the road. The black one with patches is my everyday coat. Once I can get it over to the leather shop it'll have one of every DTT patch made (I think) on it. It was a $10 EBay deal years ago.

Unfortunately, my Aprilia is gone (hope to have another someday), it was faster in second gear than this bike is flat out..... This is a gentleman's bike (slow) but fits these country roads out here just fine. Right now I'm trying to figure out if my expectations are too high, or if I need to do a lot more tuning. I have some jets on the way. It has E.I. and fires first or second kick, but breaks up on hard throttle. I'm kind of a hack, so it'll take me a while to sort her out, but so far, just looking at it gets me giddy....

My pair of 2-stroke projects as they sit.

(http://myselfalone.com/bike/images/20161208_roommates.jpg)

The 1971 CT1C has been in parts gathering stage for a while, I just got started on some actual work when the 1967 YR1 caught my eye. 

Unfortunately this is where the YR1 engine is at
(http://myselfalone.com/bike/images/1967_YR1/20161206_fun-times1.jpg)

The CT1C has only gone as far as some aluminum sanding... I'm painting fins with polished edges and will be polishing all of the case parts while waiting on a few more internals to be acquired.

Yeah, that was the first thing I tracked down.  I have a good used one and 2 iffy shields to try to restore on hand.

I really wanted a luggage rack for the YR1, but I am really really digging on the sissy bar now that it has grown on me.

Bill....it's not that difficult/I'm not that clever. I mocked up a brace from card.....then got it waterjet cut from 2mm stainless. I bent it accordingly, and cut and bonded a stainless fender to it.....not rocket science. Here it is before bending and polishing, next to my new instrument mount.

The Beeza Rat Deadtail started life as a lightning but was very poorly raked when I took it on had to tweak the head stock into line and reweld, then it became an obvious Canada date for a weld in Deadtail  8) I like to think it will stroll along on breezy sunny days just fine  ;D

Nice. I just bought it like that on eBay. The tank the bike came with was cut up and spot welded back together. Going to use it for a male plug to do the carbon fiber tank this summer. For now I like the stock tank in the pic, looks good to me and the paint is in really good condition.

Dude that looks gorgeous - looks like you've spent a lot of time getting that engine gleaming! Kudos mate. Question - how did you cut the rear subframe? Looks really neat, and you've managed to leave what looks like part of the frame to support the hoop you'll be welding on? You gonna be leaving the air box off? Moving the battery around?

Hey Jimbonaut I used a 3" angle grinder to cut the frame, I will eventually move the wiring mess under the tank and relocate the battery to the swingarm. Here's the latest: getting everything cleaned up.

Is that new Handy Lift noisy as fuck when the pump runs? I want a hydro lift, but that whine makes me think pumping with by foot ain't so bad  :-\ Maybe I could stuff the pump in an insulated box or just turn up Patsy Cline  ;D

Thanks.... Hopefully I'll have her running like a nice scoot soon too.  Though my Sporty is just back together, so preoccupied with run-in and some tuning of her at the moment. The new lift is a Handy look-alike. Got it hooked up to my standard compressor. So yes, definitely noisy when it kicks in, but doesn't need to do it much; happy to take that over foot pumping  (and Patsy Cline  :P)

I thought I'd give myself some "me" time, so I went ahead and mocked up a Triton from stuff I had around the shop after recently acquiring a "free" plunger frame.

ENGINE: '62 Triumph TR6SS 650
TRANNY: (unknown) Pre-Unit Triumph, possibly slickshift compatible
FRAME: '52 Norton ES2 plunger
FORKS & YOKES: BSA 650, frozen
TANK: 1974 Triumph Trident 750

Wheels are temporary Japanese units.

(http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1461/6266009/24706945/413132579.jpg)

I'm going to chop the forks down a bit at a time 'till I arrive at the proper attitude. I have some spare bits of 6061 alloy from my unit Triton kit stock, so I'll fab up my own front mounts, the rear/tranny mounts just need a bit of modification.

Oh, I get what you guys were saying.....

It doesn't live outside (right now)!
I just pushed it into the snow because I got it running and wanted to go for a ride.....

It will live in a parking spot, next to my Norton, uncovered for the season though.
But that really doesn't sound like abuse to me either.  I find covers cause more damage then just leaving the bike in the sport and regularly cleaning/waxing it.

F'ing problem child is living up to it's rep this spring. There are 6 bolts total to install a Termi slip on system. Simple. Long story short it took weeks to get the pipes to fit the bike. Once that was done, time to install a new chip in the ECU. Ten minutes, right? Wrong. Have to pull the ECU to do it, which resulted in finding a rattle that led to buying an NOS ECU. Once that was here, 15 minutes to install it, no problem! Got it in to find out fuel pump wouldn't run. Pull new ECU out, check if chip is installed correctly (it was) leading to troubleshooting which eventually showed the connector to the fuel pump was seeing the voltage it should see when it should see it, so must be the pump. Jumped power to the pump and it ran.

Fook me. Connector is good. WTF?

Same thing happened to my 996 a couple years ago. Screw it, new fuel pump ordered.

So, what should have taken maybe an hour tops with no cost involved has taken weeks with hundreds of dollars involved. All par for the course for this thing.

The good news is... I discovered the flakey ECU and fuel pump in my basement rather than on the road, so that's good. Now I'm just waiting to find out which sensor has blown which will prevent this thing from running once the pump is worked out.

It's all good. Best dog I ever had was a complete pain in the beginning. This bike is going to figure out who the boss is eventually too...

And yes, that is the ECU hanging off the side. I knew I shouldn't have put the bodywork back on without checking things out the first time!

Nah, Desmo, if you had checked it before you but the bodywork back it would have been fine, until you tried to start it; then you'd be in the same spot as no.

That's funny, because it's true. That's exactly what happened when I went through this with my 996.

In other news, I turned the key this evening and the pump ran. Bike even fired. So what, the new pump is going in along with a new battery. I suspect the battery is the real problem but the pump is suspect too so out it comes.

Went to the tag office to get the airhead legal, but the VIN didn't show up in their computer. So, they give me the form and tell me I need a VIN cert from a sheriff. This is Augusta and its Masters week, so good luck getting a traffic division Sheriff out to your shop. The only way was to load it up and take it to their office. An odd sight for sure- an old boxchevy dragging an airhead.

New big bore S&S cylinders, Wiseco pistons, S&S roller rockers, hydro lifters, pushrods, oil pump, Thunderheader exhaust, new ignition, voes and more.  Went from a sloppy, low compression 84" motor to higher compression stroked 93" motor.   It's going through heat cycles now and hearing it fire up is a whole new beast.

I think you'll find its cos you've parked it upside down, the fuel will be leaking out through the cap on top of the tank

there you go..fixed

Rocker cover polished, paint had been taken off with a wire wheel by someone so it's not perfect, you can see in the half/half state

Emgo longies slid further on and upwards to tuck in a bit, they are a little worse for wear anyway so didn't mind grinding off some bracket and taking the ball pane to them on the inside to make frame clearance.

When that paint scheme was produced, I didn't like it but seeing it now I think it looks great, nice bike!

 It's one of those India tanks. Made of heavier gage, but was a bit of a pain, had to shave the tank rubbers to get it to fit. I still have the original tank and will at some point paint it black. Ultimately I'd also like to get an European tank, it'll almost be like having three bikes (well that's how my twisted mind works anyway)... I still have some minor adjustments and repairs, but so far this thing has been pretty fun. I love the front brake hub, it just looks vintage, but you definitely have to plan your stops when riding briskly.

 My kid thinks I'm crazy, between this bike and my 49 Chevy p/up, he wants to know what I have against brakes.... As I told him, it's not the technology of these machines, but the souls, that attract me...

Yup, that was my inspiration too!   8)  The big difference was my need to avoid clip-ons. My body can't take that riding position any more.  :P

As it sits, it's really fun to ride. Gobs of power, obviously, and tons of confused looks from folks.  ;D

Bike sits outside under a cover and the seat cover was starting to get dried out last year. Soggy spring and slammed at work so yesterday was the first ride in several months and since a nasty hail storm about a month ago. Tank is fine but the seat is sporting a cool new retro pattern.

I hate it when shit like that happens. most of the roads here are crap chip seal and you know to be careful but they go a change one that is asphalt over to chip seal without you knowing and that gets hairy for sure. butt pucker moment.

Wish I knew. Was tinkering trying to get the thing to take a bit of throttle (dies when I crack it open, but revs OK if I roll on slowly) and I just hear a loud crack from the front. Then the coolant starts trickling out.

its happened to a few CX owners, the fan can come apart after so many years and take out the rad.
Rads can be had from Fleabay and replacement fans are available that will give you many years of service

They are paving the side street in front of my garage and ground all the asphalt off exposing the block street. I wish they would leave it this way, it slows the traffic down significantly and looks a fair bit better IMO. But I had to get a photo of my bike on the stones before they were hidden for another 20 years.

Ah, the mind boggling decision about paint. I go through this every time I build a bike and they always end up painted black! I intend to paint my current project blue, but I know it's going to be black. Yet I spend many anxious moments doodling designs in my chosen colors and even laying out tape on the sheet metal only break at the final moment and go with my well worn and chosen color....black! Fortunately there are various shades of black! A friend of mine recently built a near show quality chopper. It came time for paint and he couldn't make a decision. In the end, he shot gloss clear over gray primer and it looks great.

Kidding aside, I like the "clear over steel" on it now. Gives it kind of a raw hand built look.
The only change I'd consider would be maybe adding some flake to the clear. Give it a little Old School flare.

Found this on the side of the road next to a property where there was squatter camp. Well, a developer had purchased the property and began clearing all the vehicles off of it. It had a impound within 24 hour notice that was a week old. So I figure I saved it from the crusher at least. The carbs move freely and it's not locked up. I'd say winter is looking better already! I'll have to do the Vermont trick for papers. I read how to do it once on here, can anyone send me a link or how to on how that process goes? Thanks guys!

Doc, it even feels different.  ;D

The look of the paint, tail and side covers changes everything for me. Totally worth the $$ IMO.  :)

A little over a month ago I went down and got off the freeway at the first available exit. I parked in this exact spot and took a photo pointing the opposite direction. Everything has been replaced or repaired and I painted the fairings. No visible damage to the bike and I escaped without any long lasting injuries. Glad that the bike and me are still here.

the rest of the bike looks awesome, why not have a go at making a custom one, mock up the shape you want in cardboard then copy it into a sheet of alloy (easily bendable and polishable) , how is it attached to the pipes? captive nuts on the pipes or some sort of clamp arrangement? if its nuts it could be quite do-able and if it doesn't work its only time that's its cost you (sheets of alloy are easily available on every street corner if you can reach the top of the pole the street sign or stop sign is on)

It's got a ways to go but it's getting there. The tank is sitting high because wiring is still stashed where the tank needs to go.

And because I'm a Ducati fanboy, I had to try an 851 tail on it too. I may play around with it more but I think it'd take more work than I'm willing to do right now.

Wait, you mean you don't knock it down into a million pieces first, paint everything, and stick it back together and it runs perfectly?

I got my XS to start and run before I started working on it.  Turns out I shouldn't have bothered.  It did run, but when I opened it to replace gaskets and seals turns out it needed a full rebuild.  Cylinders were out of spec, rods were worn out, cam chain guide was bad.

I know what you mean. Builder/Restoration shows have done the same to me.
More times than I can count, I've walked out the shop and said "We'll return after this short commercial break...", only to come back to the bike in the exact same condition as when I left :o ::)

This one was already "opened" when it arrived in the family. The frame was a roller, but the engine was completely disassembled, in two boxes and a plastic tote. I had no choice but to do a rebuild first :P

Looks pretty good. Will be interesting to see how this develops.

Post by: Brodie on Apr 11, 2018, 01:32:08
Might be the one. I just couldn't bring myself to putting a bend into it for the single engine. I decided to sit back and think about what I really wanted. A nice smooth "gentleman's bike" like the Golden Flash was advertised, that I could ride every day. So a motor with heaps of parts seemed like a good idea. I decided to keep it fairly quiet until I worked out if it would fit. The old motor will go into a rigid frame once I find one.

  Well done Mate! The Brit Owners Club is going to hate you, but I love it. Is that a 500 or 600 motor? Several years back a local shop in Atlanta was putting Suzuki 650 single motors in A7/A10 frames. They seem to have vanished.

500 twin. I had someone from the local historical club refuse to sell me a few parts because I was too young to build a Brit bike. I am sure they will not be impressed but the bike is for me not them.

  Should be a good motor. I have a friend who is touring the world via motorcycle. He swears by the Suzuki 500 motor and has worn out several Ninjas and Vulcans over the last 10 years.

That's just a mock-up motor, the one going in it, is on the bench getting built.

It still needs the head and jugs sent to a machine shop.

I need a front wheel that will fit these forks.

All in all, slowly but surely moving.

Or not. Stock tank had expanded too much to deal with, I reverted back to a metal tank to avoid any further issues with POS plastic gas tanks. I hate plastic tanks...

The race bike was just fired up last week after a 7-year sleep. The '66 hadn't been started in almost as long. The '70 is my regular rider classic.

From what I've heard, the material they use for tanks that don't have to be painted is different than tanks that do have to be painted. That and on most cars if the tank expanded, no one would know anyway.

Waiting for its alloy tank to be returned from the paint shop, should be ready this week. While the rear sets have been removed as I'm making a new set which will (hopefully) suite the style of the bike better. About to rip out all the wiring, to be replaced with new switchgear and an M-Unit ECU from Moto Gadget. Pity, as I put a lot of effort into that wiring harness.

+1 good job on the lacework, that can be tough to get clean.  I like everything about the bike, except the tires, those suck LOL. after you get her running I'd sell those off and get a good set of Avons/Shinko's or something that will allow you to actually make a turn without coming to a complete stop first.

Thanks on the tank. I agree with you maritime. The reason I have them is because a friend bought them for his bike and hated them. Gave em to me. I putting this bike together from parts. Started the project because I had an engine. I prob will change them as soon as funds permit. Currently just getting it running. They are pretty square and probably leave me in a ditch somewhere.

Gorgeous. They are great bikes, and super comfortable with low bars. The 550 I had for a while had some 7/8" Pro-Taper MX style bars that felt great on there. I'd just check the charging system and put some miles on her!

 Of course it's your bike to do with what you will. My father had one (full on Harley guy, but took it in a trade) and I always dreamed of finding it. They are amazing bikes, just felt more sophisticated than a Honda or other 550's I'd ridden. That is sooooo complete and nice, I wouldn't touch a thing and enjoy it...

New toy..... left over model I just bought new.

I have an 2012, the seat sucks, I changed mine and got a pretty price for the stocker at the swap meet. I installed lower bars and megaphone pipes and ride the heck out of it. Really enjoyable bike. The only reason I'd get rid of it would be to get the new 1200. I upgraded to Hagon and progressive suspension and she handles well. Not fast, but nobody really runs away from me. I really like the nostalgia look, especially the fenders. I put a low profile taillight that cleans up the space ship look, smaller turn signals and lower mirrors. A short wind screen. Did I say I really like the bike? Light, quick handling, proper looking, what's not to like???

I will probably leave mine as is, for a while anyway. Seat is comfy for me and the handlebar position is comfortable also. In the future I might put my leftover Thruxton seat on it along with some "M" bars and round chrome bar end mirrors. I already have a slightly modified Thruxton as my British cafe racer, so this Bonnie can just be my cruiser.

The leather Bonneville seat is from Journey Project, which I think is based in Thailand.  Took about 6 weeks to get it.  Fits great and is comfortable.  Comes with leather dressing. See https://www.facebook.com/pg/OmegaRacer/photos/?tab=album&album_id=772327669553501

Sweet little scoot! Since the shaft is junk anyways, you could maybe drill it for a bolt? It would weaken that area with the splines but that thing probably takes no force to kick it over so it may last you a while until you have to fix it the "right" way.

The gear on these is on the outside of the case.  I'm pretty sure you don't have to split the case to change the shaft.  Don't try to cobble together a fix.  The shaft is not hard to find- even $25 on Ebay.  You need the splines to handle the torque.  I've seen people weld the lever on, tho.  With XL175's guys weld a Kawasaki end onto the shaft, since the shafts have become unobtanium.

I've had the cover off, the gear is inside the casing.

Too bad I can't just come from under, have to pull the head, jug and all to split it......was just trying to see if there were other ways.

Oh well, looks like an engine pull.

Hey thanks !, the cb550 front end swap was pretty easy, making the cb360 wheel work took a bit of effort but i’m pleased with the result.

Realise its a heavy front end but bike handles well, and brakes way better than standard :-)

Some road rash on the right bar end and engine case, but just minor.

Looked just fine until I rode the rest of the way to work. Bike was wanting to pull a bit to the right, so I think something may have gotten tweaked when the car hit the rear tire or when the bar end hit the ground.

Probably need to line up the front again. I dumped in the drive and my front was tweaked, I just loosened all the clamps and wiggled everything straight and re-tightened and it fixed it. That's the simple explanation, there are steps etc. on the web on how to get everything back in line.

true...it's a major PITA to be honest. Some builders (home or pro) design them in while others stick them on as an afterthought :/

We gotta have'em so I take into account it's got to be there and prefer to design them in rather than have them sticking out or place which look spoor in my eyes.

This is a 1980 GS550, modified to lighten it and sharpen the handling.  The engine was left stock, but cleaned up and tuned.  The electrical system was upgraded with a Shorai battery, MOS-FET rectifier, and a relay for the coils.  A high-flow petcock was added.  Many parts were handmade from aluminum, largely to replace the heavy headlight and instrument mounting parts to reduce weight above the level of the rider's waist.  The ignition switch was moved to under the seat, again to reduce weight in the area of the headstock.  Tarozzi clip-ons are fully adjustable, as are the homemade rearsets (with parts from Slipstream Cycle Works). 

The bike came with swing-arm needle bearings and tapered rollers in the headstock, but longer rear shocks and dropped fork, combined with clip-ons and rearsets, improve handling, ground clearance and rider control.  The front brake line was replaced with a steel item, and the calipers were rebuilt.  The $35 Chinese seat looks good, is comfortable, and weighs only about a pound and a half.  Items like the bobbed front fender and rear frame also reduce weight.  This bike is more than 50 lbs lighter than stock.

This is the second GS550 I've built.  They're easy to find, respond well to mods, and are a lot of fun.

I've run several different tires on my dr650, and I've found that that bike wears out rear tires faster than any bike I've owned. Maybe its a torquey thumper thing.... and maybe it's because wheelies are fun haha

Current tire is a Dunlop trailsmart. I got a blemished one for $60 new, but they are regularly a $160 tire. At about 1700-2000 miles it's about clapped. Got 1500 out of a shinko 244 and the trakmaster on pavement, you can almost see the wear every gas stop lol


Ps, pic is about 300 miles ago, bit now there is very little tread left in the middle. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180804/bf9887a898f4350d6e21289e2d5f622e.jpg)

Microsquirt ECU running msextra code.  Using mostly GM sensors.  Temp sensor is gm but modified by thedubshop for aircooled VWs.  Spartan wideband, custom intank pump, respaced gsxr600 ITBs, chevy LS2 coils.  Getting the intank pump set up was the hardest part.

Right on. Did you do your own tuning?
Title: Re: Post a pic of your motorcycle as it sits
Post by: Rat_ranger on Aug 10, 2018, 14:30:31
Yeah, set it up using tunerstudio and copied the stock advance curve.  Got it close around the neighborhood and then went on longer rides using autotune.  Now it's pretty good.

Ignition system is part of the Microsquirt system?

And just running with a TPS and tach or are you measuring air flow with a MAP or MAF or something?
Title: Re: Post a pic of your motorcycle as it sits
Post by: Rat_ranger on Aug 10, 2018, 15:01:40
I'm running alpha N rught now, ao just TPS and rpm.  I do have a MAP sensor hooked up so that I can switch to ITB mode and use MAP at low throttle/cruise and alpha n when vacuum signal drops.  With the MS extra code the ECU is controlling the LS coils, they are "smart" coils.  It is all triggered by a 36-1 wheel that replaced the advance mechanism.

what is your total system draw including pump?
Title: Re: Post a pic of your motorcycle as it sits
Post by: Rat_ranger on Aug 10, 2018, 17:53:38
I honestly don't know.  I don't have anything that can measure the draw.  It does seem to have plenty of power with the 200w PMA set up.
Title: Re: Post a pic of your motorcycle as it sits
Post by: Sonreir on Aug 10, 2018, 18:35:57
The whole system is probably about 60W.

Motorcycle fuel pumps usually pull just under 5A and the rest of the system is nominal.

Raising the bars, which means removing the existing solid fairing mount and going back to the stock r90/s mounts, which means removing 80% of the front end, which means learning about BMWs and realizing that all this wiring my start to look alot like japanese wiring very shortly.

The frankenengine is also almost ready for bench testing, while the summer lasts it’ll probably not make it into Tidler until October time.

It ran to about 125 or so and cooked the piston again.  But I know why now.  Another new piston and I should be good.  Hopefully they aren't famous last words.  I'm getting really tired of this shit.  I don't know how much I have to offer to the gods.

Since my TR1 build is taking some time, I bought a cheap CB550 that just needed some carb work to start and run.
Turns out the engine is from a CB500 and the clutch is of course shot: broken push rod, mangled clutch actuator.

I got the new parts sitting in a box, but the wife decided we needed to paint and redo our bedroom so who knows when I'll have time to put them in.
