My build project

Ok...I initially began to have an engine built for my 2004 repsol replica RC but before that project really began, I found what I thought to be a better base starting platform=SCOTT's bike. many of you knew this bike from photos on the web....Yean, I agreed-it looked good in the photos that were 5-6 yrs old; however, after purchasing and riding the bike a few times, I realized that I needed to combine the parts from both my repsol replica and Scott's bike.

Scott's bike had a modded electrical setup, chopped subframe, trick Japanese switches, sato rearsets, sato hangers and a few goodies I wanted to keep.

Scott's bike was setup waaaayy too soft for me, had older ohlins forks, a worn out engine that would sputter and cut out on me on the way too work, brakes were average on the street and I hated the shape of the brembo levers.

My repsol replica had AK gas forks, and ohlins shock setup for my weight, moriwaki Ti rainbow exhaust that I had just purchased, a DH air box and snorkel that was better thatn the turn 1 unit on Scott's. I also had newer BST wheels with a warranty and serial numbers, Ti bits, CF pieces, tyga triple, 18a vs 14a shorai battery, extended AL kickstand nicer seat yada yada.

Soooooo....For those that were bitching, whining, complaining, cussing that I AM PARTING OUT SCOTT'S BIKE, it isn't so...see, I'm left with his bike and tittle so, in my opinion, its isn't PARTED OUT, I am merely swapping parts that I prefer for myself. My repsol replica will be sold close to stock when I am don so, which frame/ title did I keep? Scott's!

So, enough of the whining that I PARTED OUT poor Scotty's bike, like f#$king his ex wife or something..he didn't want it-he got rid of it. case closed.

I have a few picvs of the weekends activities with JONDOG, CHYLWILL, and RCDEVIL swapping out parts and a few pics of the shops work on the engine so far.
enjoy.

Cool project and excited to see what your engine produces

My only bitch was not having the funds to pick up the BST's

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

bitch

hey rock...no the bitching was with lots of people on several forums including scott on what I was doing-calling it PARTING IT OUT! Well, IMO, the replacement parts are superior or more to my liking than what he had...It may have looked nice at one time, but it was ridin hard and needed some work, including the engine...Im just taking up where he decided to bail and go to a beemer..Im keeping his bike alive but in my own way...Like taking his ex wife and buying her a new dress..Hey, if you got rid of it you can bitch.....


TKS extrapolator....been planning this engine for 2 months or so, buying, stashing parts, but the shop is plastigauging the rods/crank as we speak...hope the bearing I have work or its 3 days of waiting..

ALSO, at some point, one of my heads was damaged. I don't know if it was shipped that way by TXfireblade, damagaed at swain tech or in return shipping, but it is a significant gouge in the mating surface that will have to be welded and milled, losing some of my ceramic coating in the combustion chamber on that head (see pic).


SUCKS!

if the new bearings I bought produces the correct clearance, the bottom end will already be done today....Since the carillos have no matching numbers, it would be maybe 1 in 5 chance if it happens...we will see...other case bearings have been gauged and are within spec...rings, pistons all gapped...just waitin to assemble the rods and then it should go very smoothly until they get to the heads.....sucks, can't lap in the cams, set valves etc...have to waiti until the head is repaired and valve job done at the same time....so, I look forward to end of next week until things get rolling good.

crank clearances

Rod clearances using the smallest (yellow) bearings, produced clearances of .001 and .0015, within .001-.0025 specs. A little tight, but OK...case bearings will be checked just after lunch when the guys return. Hopefully, the case codes of grren and brown bearings will be within spec and the bottom end can be installed.

A few pics of the rotating mass and heads/intake port.
