SifuGR [QUOTE=9hondas;440845]

I'm looking for opinions here about how to best proceed on the mechanical side of this. The bike is otherwise in showroom condition. I know the motor will have to come out, I guess the only question is what goes back in, this one with a new crankcase set or a used motor off ebay.

I'd like to put new cases on this motor since its such low miles, but aside from the obvious cost of cases and gaskets, what other parts will I need?

Would it be possible to swap the guts between cases without pulling the flywheel and alternator rotors? Would I need new rings etc on the pistons too?



So, this damge happened to me too, but I did it while on track, wondering about how to fix...*Most cost effectively... If i bought a used set of cases, should i buy the crank from that motor too�

whitw wings That was my understanding after speaking with the owner... I think I still have these cases in the big garage...

Just a lil clean-up

You're just basically cleaning up casting flash so there is less oil clinging to those areas and flows back to the sump area more efficiently....

Hey Waldo, I guessing here but it MUST be "#25 HRC Case Mod." Speedster is asking about, right Speedster?

I'm not sure how much more you could ask for, there IS Good pictures here with what He did... Use a Dremel tool have at it, same type of work as porting heads.

I am wondering who has ported the area for better flow and if there are some closer pictures so that I can get a better idea on how to go about it?

Kurt make sure you have the rev limiter jumpered out !!!
I did not have it removed for this tune as it was in my other harness. I relized it afterwards when revewing the graphs against another with similar mods and his increase after 10k.

I applied enough heat reflective tape on the top radiator to leave just a half inch of cooling space which kept the engine temp in the 185-205 range. This consistency gave us a MUCH smoother map and power at 131 on pump fuel.

Quoted fact from LDH...Anything below 180 is not normal operating temp, anything below 168 is still in the warm-up cycle with enriched A/F.

Anything over 200 degrees also goes richer which increases the idle, but also burns cooler in the cylinder.

I am sure they know this, but if you want to borrow my ( sbk drews ) samco kit and hang some rads hit me-up !

I will throw a pc3usb on between next race and the July race for those interested in the maps were creating for the ladybird exhaust. I wanted to make 2 quality maps for you all to use for these set ups. I would recommend motor work and not just basic bolt on's. I was lucky to find a motor that was built for reliability race SEASON after season on pump 93 octane.

I won't post numbers until it's all smoothed out but man, it's pretty close now!

HRC wiring harness
Yoyodyne slipper clutch
Moriwaki airbox
Wiseco pistons
Cases ported to HRC specs
Transmission undercut by Fast by Gast (up / down)
Falicon Supercrank Cylinders coated by Millennium Technologies
Cylinder heads ported by Alex Fornelli

RC51Stunna I know exactly how that feels, I haven't been able to ride mine for more than a year now.

Sorry to hear about your decision to let her go, but hopefully someone can bring it back to life and make use of all the good work you did on it.

Have you thought about parting it out?

I've got to get it out of the trailer, clean it up, and post up an ad.

Since the rebuild, I've probably only done a handful of races and track days. We were doing more on the endurance bike and I'd just bring the 51 along with to practice on. Well, a few of the other guys have bounced their heads off the pavement too many times and no longer are allowed to race. So even the endurance bikes are sitting. I've got one SV with the engine in pieces ready to go back together with a superbike level engine. Just haven't had the ambition to do it.
