Or maybe you are more comfortable on a more substantial frame (I prefer the feel of bigger bikes to little ones, little ones seem flimsey).
You have obviously put a lot of thought into this project so Im thinking it wasn't because thats what you had kicking around in the back shed.
I am not in any way critisizing you (your work is brilliant from my point of view) its just that somebody once told me physics sez the smallest lightest bike (all things being equal) should have the highest apex speed (although I used to make a point of passing him around corners on my bigger bike).
By the way... whats the top speed of your machine? Must be one of the fastest singles around? Purely a guees from me 230km/h+
Yo Berg bro! Yes, you are right about this being thought through! At first I was very close to building a Minimono (125-style). I thought that as the Husaberg 650 was only 1kg heavier than a 450-japcrap, I could run a 650 in it without tuning so much. Then I started to project the build. At the time no one was building Minimono´s on 125-chassies. Everyone was going towards steel tube chassies with 125-dimensions. Tigcraft, GRC, NWS and others were offering chassies for a sum of money. The 125 rear wheel has 3 pins connecting the rear sprocket to the rim. So there was an obvious need for a cush drive. PVM offered special 125-wheels for Minimono purpose with cush drive. So all was do-able but it summed up well over 15000€ for the complete bike, back in 2003. At the same time fellow racers had terrible problems getting the chassie builders to deliver in time, to the contracted cost and with expected quality. On top of that I wasn't sure that 180cm, 77kg deadmeat would be able to utilize the high corner speed that Minimono was making possible. So, I decided to buy a Honda RS250 (with extra wheels) and sold the engine. Fabricated engine mounts, cush drive, air box, modified the fuel tank, etc. Cost was down to perhaps 6000€, I was in total control of all fabrication and supply and familiar with the charasteristics of the 250. From purschase of the chassie, the bike was completed to the first race of the season, 3 months later! Thanks to my lovely and understanding wife!

On tracks with high speed corners (Spa, Assen, Hockenheim, Donington fx), a Minimono can be very competitive. You can keep the high speed up and utilize that awesome corner speed. On the small club-racing tracks we are racing in the Nordic Cup, you will need more "grunt" to get out of the tight low speed corners, making a Supermono with 65+ RWHP a better weapon.

In the european Supermono Cup there are Pami BMW´s or Happeck Yamaha´s with 720-740cc and over 80RWHP... With my current engine I'm loosing a bike length on a short straight compared to one of those bikes, with 644cc...

I have no speedometer, but 220km/h seems possible with the existing engine. I will have to get back to you once the new bits are tuned together!

Re: Billet cylinder head

Hello again, friends!
Lot of things have come in the way of me finishing the DOHC-project, but now I have managed to put in some hours. Today I got the engine, with the DOHC-head, fitted in the frame. I had to cut some in the frame and weld, but now fits! Tomorrow I will manufacture tools to adjust the cam timing and something to hold the ignition pickup sensor in place. I will stick it through the hole in the flywheel cover for the cables.

Hey Dr C, is the second hole to the right for the Camshaft Position Sensor? Looks about 18mm diameter with a 5~6mm threaded hole to suit the Honeywell Hall Effect Sensor.

Yes, it is! I just made a steel insert in the alu chain sprocket for the sensor to be happy. Tomorrow I will time the camshafts. I have not decided what LC to adjust them to for the first test. Somewhere around 115 degrees I think. The 13,9:1 piston will add so much mid range I think I will need to go up with LC (and back off with ignition advance) to make it go "zing" as well. I'll keep you guys posted. After so many hours it is finally close to the first start. Very exiting!

Re: Billet cylinder head

Gentlemen!
Finally it has come to the first fire! The fuel injection was challenging, but finally it came alive! Fun to see the injector working "live" according to map, rev and throttle opening! Now the work begins with adjusting intake, exhaust and mapping it up.

The cost effectiveness comparison with investing in beer and fire crackers, caught you, did'nt it?

OK, Bushie, this one is for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQoPtR7LPco

Scary close to David Attenborough.

Re: Billet cylinder head



I do love a good documentary

your description of the starting motor thumper has everyone here in stitches Dr_C

yes it is quite rare to see such er perhaps not the right words but .. emotion and knowledge directed via screen and so appropriately too .... toward anything other than endangered penguins.

like you said though how cool is the FI ? squirting away and leaving a mist of horsepower ready Tis lucky I have a perimiter frame with room for such a contraption, presently the space is to house some beer and firecrackers.

the V12 is some firecracker too
