Thanx for finding us!
It seems that you have done quite a lot on your bike. The translation seems be a bit confusing, can you post the text in English as well? I think most people on this forum is able to read English.
Have a really nice day...
Great, thanks I will post in english. After I posted the note my wife told me that the translator looses meaning. I will re-post it now.
I made the big engine changes for this year and had an oil filter failure that cooked that particular engine, I am in the midst of building another one - the engine locked up and locked up the tire at 130mph on the track - I managed to keep it right side up and avoided the rail.
During my rebuild I found a flaw in Honda's design in the output shaft. Quite a few people have broke the output housing for the drive shaft - somehow I have avoided breaking mine, however, with the drastic increase in HP I knew I would break it. I built a preload strut that put 30lbs of pressure on the shaft and would stop it from coming out the side of the bike. When I was tearing down the engine I found the internal bearing retainer had broke (this is the piece of cast iron sandwiched between the engine case and the aluminum output housing) this inturn when broke would allow the helicle gears to climb and break the outer housing.
I am machining a new one out of 4340 high carbon steel that will not break and see how things go.
Here's a list of things I have done to the bike, most of it is all hand built for the track.
2007CC cylinders with Stainless O-rings
13.25:1 High Compression Gas Ported Pistons
Copper Head gaskets
Heads have been flowed to the max and Stainless Valves and double springs
505 lift Cams
Dual Intake with 4" S&S Velocity Stacks
80HP wet Nitrous system
Progressive Nitrous Controller
125psi external fuel pump
2 x 100psi fuel regulators to manage the wet nos and main fuel rail
2 x 800cc Subaru WRX injectors balanced and blueprinted by RC Engineering (stock is 400cc)
Custom Wayde build 2" stainless 2 into 1 equal length drag header with 7" megaphone and 4" turnout
Dual EGT (Exhaust Gas Technology) internal exhaust temperature probes
4th and 5th gear side dogs have been reduce by half and receiver windows doubled in size
Clutch: 6 arm locker clutch with 10 stack Kewl Metal ( best clutch on the planet - my opinion)
160lb Nitrous operated push button shifter with engine delay module
Solid rear struts
Solid motor mounts (required for output stabilizer)
Output shaft stabilizer with 30lbs of preload ( keeps the drive shaft from blowing out the side of engine)
Rear foot pegs positioned just ahead of the rear axle and low to the ground so my foot is on the ground and on the peg at the same time.
Rear brake re-designed and positioned on rear peg
Front brake has been reduced to one caliper and 3rd piston included
Front Forks and been shortened internally to limit outward travel to 1.5"
Rear Fibreglass body by Extreme revolution and re-worked to extend length and provide launch saddle
Rear Wheel - N Type with 7" slick
Front wheel - Weld Racing 21" Blade by HDL
Front Honda Bezel modified to contain Race electronics
Ground Pounder Rad scoop by Extreme Revolution
Tank shell is a narrowed version of the Retro tank made of Fibreglass
Small 1 gallon fuel cell under seat area
72" Wheelie Bar
Battery relocated ahead of rear wheel where the evape canister used to be.
Rectifier relocated to other side of bike
The bike is approx 250hp and will run 9 sec 1/4's, I am competing in the NHRA Summit series again this year. For those of you that do or don't follow this racing series, there are probably 800 - 1000 bikes out there in all 7 divisions on the top 7 bikes get to go to Pamona to run the finals. Last year - I finished in 16th place and think Honda's Rock!!! and it's time for them to wake up and be afraid of us.
I would also like to thank my sponsors that help make this happen.
- continued dollars in the engine development
- 10 Stack clutches, I ran a complete race season with over 200 passes on 1 clutch and I was running 160hp last year.
- the crew at Extreme have continued to supply the greatest looking boday components around.
- always has the parts needed and are always on time with their deliveries - I can always count on them.
Innovative Design Concepts
- Keven's Dual intake is a one of a kind - aside from awesome performance, there's noth like 20 Harley guys drewling over the look too.
- David Campbell has one thing on his mind - " Provide the most dependable power acheivable" I challange anyone to build these engines beyond what David can.
