Thanks guys... I'm really happy with what I have so far... No short cuts or things I wish were different.
Just waiting on a load of parts right now...
I have a few things I can do between now and when I get the parts so I will be mocking up the subframe, rads, cdi, and exhaust to finish all the little mounts, brackets, and widgets that I can account for at this time.
I still don't know for sure which exhaust I will be using so time will tell.
Hopefully something really cool smiley

Oh yeah... Look what showed up from the Annodizer today



Blasted all that nasty orange pumpkin rhine right off the parts and then sent them to Scot Schneider.
He took them to his good buddy Kenny at Precision Anodizing in Oklahoma City.
Here is a link to his Facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/Precision-Anod ... 585119272/

I had him try and match the color of a cooler I already had.
As you can see the parts turned out great!

Thanks Scot and Kenny.
I really appreciate it!

Wow... Using a Power Dynamo Ignition on this conversion will only require a new mounting bracket and a bit of trimming..
Easy money..

Turbo cranks have come and gone over the years.
Some say they work others have had no success.
I admit that I am a skeptic until I see it, feel it, smell it, or put it on the dyno lol.
So, I'm gonna put it on the dyno.
Steve Parris contacted me about a year or so ago and told me what he was up to.
He's spent a lot of time getting a patent and like he said, I would not have done that if it does not work.
I said, well... I have heard that others have not had any success with the turbo cranks.
He said, 'That's because they did it wrong."
After we talked for a bit it suddenly occurred to me why they did not work for some...
They did not modify their cases to take advantage of the mod.
Steve verified my thought...
Next Steve told me about the write up that Dirt Bike Magazine did on the crank.
After testing they verified that 10-15% HP and torque increases were gained.
Soooooo... It's time to see what it does for a KX500.
I have two KX500 engines built to the same specs.
One with the Turbo crank and the other without.
Once the second engine is completed we will break it in, jet it, and run both engines back to back on a dyno.
Then I will reveal all to the world smiley
This specific crank is going on my KTX project.
I figured why not... If it works I smile... If it doesn't I'm out a few bucks  shocked
But I have it from a extremely reliable source that it does work... And I trust that source....
More to come....

Thanks Umberto.
I look back at when I first found this site... I never envisioned that any of this would have taken place..
But hey, ride the wave for all it's worth  cool

I made a little progress on the pipe this week...



I like the natural look... but I'd like to add a little flair....  wink
