reminds me somehow of the longtail boats with prop shafts poked out the back

Not you too, Bushie! My starter motor have always stolen all the attention in the pits. Old farts get all misty eyed over the resemblance with an ignition bulb motor and the kids over the carbon muffler they couldn't afford after having spent all their savings on a CBR600... No one paid any attention to my Supermono! Boo-hoo. So, I thought I'd better build a spectacular bike to take peoples eyes off my starter motor.

Maybe the next video will have a special guest star?

so deep down im an old fart LOL yes a guest star with the blingest muffler in da house

the new coolers should do a mighty job .. .if they are not enough I wonder if grooves in the OD of the liner might help with cooling



quite a bit more surface area although less water jacket volume but then people with more letters after their name than us say there is supposedly an advantage in increasing the "Q"

in any case my 700 runs cooler than the 100mm bore, makes more power and has similar AFR across the board.

Funny thing is that when it was 100mm bore, I had to put duct tape over the coolers to keep the temperature over 65 degC. We'll see what effect the new liners from Westwood will have. That increased cooling transfer area on the liner, would surely be a good alternative, but then I would have to make a 2-piece cylinder head spacer... or the whole thing (liner + spacer) in one-piece of steel!

I think this type of DLC will result in a layer 1-8 thousands of a millimeter thick. Hardness will be 2000-2800 HV.
Coffee will be black, without sugar.
