Thanks, that is what I am looking for, At that age there is the potential of a good engine, depending on it's life story of course.
Okay, so the thing about a sportbike, any modern sportbike is that it comes out of the box on almost the leading edge of tune. Tolerances are CRAZY close on all of them, compression levels, piston clearances everything it's all close.
That is exactly why I'm looking at them,
Rebuilding is not out of the question but I would prefer to be able to wait until I get the car sorted out first.
Here is one of my problems in this application, there is only room for two pedals. so the clutch is an issue. I'm thinking of mounting the hand clutch for starting and stopping, then setting up clutchless shifting for when it's moving.
I know this will shorten the life of the tranny but the car will see very little use compared to a street bike, probably 1-2 Hours running per year, granted those hours will be running hard. If I remember right years ago the method of shifting without the clutch was to kill the ignition momentarily as the shift takes place for an up shift, but what about the downshift? is there a better way to do this? it will need to be electric or air driven or both as the actuator will be paddles on the steering wheel.
any thoughts or insights are welcome.
