What are the dimensions of your 2-1 exhaust. I've developed one for the CB350 but I'm still working on tuning the midrange using Mikuni VM30 carbs. What jets are you using as your pipe seems to take throttle well
I'm using a 2-1 system with 22" x1.5" headers leading into a merge collector that...
Absolutely beautiful work, can't wait to see the results of the dyno run. That exhaust looks really good, reminds me of the Yoshima with the equal length, smooth gradual bends. What a nice bike, your attention to the smallest detail is amazing.
With the CB500 you have to be careful as the top crankcase is designed to fit the sleeve size of the 500. That is why you can't simply put the barrel from a CB550 onto a CB500, the sleeves are too big. There were aftermarket kits made for the CB500 that took them to 572cc, 591cc and 600cc but...
Gonna miss Barber and you Dotheton lot once again. Lots of Canucks heading down from Toronto way; Drewski Bros, Breslin, Canellos, Haggerty, Fischer, the Admin & family. Should be a real blast! My best wishes for a great time goes out to all the Dotheton crowd, hope to see youse next year!
Kevin, no mods to the engine other than pods. The engine had 25,000kms on it when I bought the donor bike. Head was off it so I did a home valve job and put it back together. That's exactly how it was when we developed the pipe and then dynoed the beast.
Yes, the same. I've been busy since with more quite a few more pipes but not on website yet (CB750/900/1100, Kawasaki Z1/KZ900/1000/1100 etc). I can send you a dyno run pic/audio of my 650, really screams!
This build is killer! I've got to spend more time on Dotheton, great projects!! Get the Fox shocks, bend up a mid pipe and get that beast on the dyno. Like to see what your muffler flows like and sounds like of course. Really interested in how it handles with the Fox shocks.
Looking forward to seeing everyone once again, Kiley's or bust! More new Canuks coming down this year to cause havoc and drink all yer beer, seems fair. My only transport at Barber will be my CB550 Hybrid as the Aerostar is Hors de combat. Might need a bit of luck or heavy wrenching at Kileys...
