A little more progress

The four stroke engine: That's one stroke for producing power and three for wearing the engine out.

It's been a long long build. Many hours of engine R&D, polishing, fabrication, starting over, frustration, happiness, and now excitement. We are very close to the build off. I wish I could post pics but all I can show is this small teaser..

Jason Tanner and I were doing some testing and tuning of the KtX500e.. Jason rolls out of the driveway in 2nd gear. Then he blips the throttle just a touch... Then he flogs it with no clutch work out of the hole. He goes through the gears, turns around and comes back only to tell me that the clutch was slipping. 😲 I had just rode it and I weigh about 70 more lb than Jason so I knew the clutch was fine. We walked out to the street and looked,,, Jason left a black strip for 165 yds down the street... Yes, the bike will be getting new knobs for the build off. And, we de-tuned the engine just a smidge 😃   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmKjp4qYMQ4

There was no clutch issue, he was burning the tire off through all the gears..  :evil:
