Hey CC,

you might have let me into your thread link !!!!!!!

After reading about your 2 engines I decided to have a trawl through to find if there was more info ......... and there is.

Just found your build thread .......... lots of useful info / pix. I'll be dropping in on a regular basis now!

Thanks Beach! Glad to have you onboard. I've got a bit of momentum back on this one after setting it aside for the winter. I have a set of KZ1000 mag wheels I picked up that I'm considering going with. I prefer a rear disc to the drum but it would mean (to me) building new rearsets. Still thinking about that one...

So - are there any other Lonesome Twins hereabouts I should look into ?

CC - just got off the phone with Kaptain Kwak over on the Lonesome Twin forum. He says send him a contact and he'll deal with it straight away.

Send him your userid and real name.

Probably worth repeating from my Tangerine Dream thread for any KZ 750 Twin freaks who drop in here .....................

Piggy back oil pump to feed [ in this case ] an oil cooler.

You definitely got my attention. I replied in your thread. Glad you posted this here as well.

Yep, still working on this bike too. I did a quick mock up to see if I was going to like the KZ1000 mags on this bike. Yes I do. It might be a tight squeeze for the rear, I need to bolt it up and measure. Also, sorry about the image quality, the lens on my phone camera has been permanently "modified" by a certain 3 yr old grandchild who got his hands on it.

Is that a diaphragm pump? They're not really designed to pump hot oil. It will work for some amount of time, but not sure they can be trusted over time. Also like Matt is pointing out, unless you upgrade the charging system, a vintage bike really can't support an electric oil pump.

Yeah... Looks like one of these types, to me.



They're often sold as oil pumps, but I think they're designed for marine fuel? It'll be interesting to see if the seals hold up to the heat. Most electric oil pumps designed for hot oil use (turbo scavenge pumps, etc) are not cheap. About $300 when I was pricing them before.

That's alot of moolah for a pump.

Most of the ones that I've seen were marketed as scavenge pumps for turbos.
