Re: The FrankenBrick Smart BMW build

The price of an automotive spare part has only little to do with the actual value. It is more the transport and stockkeeping cost. I know of a part I designed wich costed 2,83 Euro to make it, and 86,45 as a spare part.

Re: The FrankenBrick Smart BMW build

Here in the Philippinens they make all kind of rubber buchings from old truck tires. Real cheap. What is the size of this bushig? It looks to me like the one Dnepr uses for the rear suspension bearing. I am sure we can find rubber for a better price. Alex I think I am going to have to do something ...

Re: CVT belt live

Belt ran 627 Km now and still looks good. But I hve the feeling it streched and is longer now, because top speed is less with the enginge running full speed. I think, hat the belt does not go to the smallest diameter on the driven, and so the reduction does not go to 1:1. I will dieve this belt till...

Re: Land Speed Racing Mk2

Normally that's absolutely correct! However, Comet sells a yellow reverse-wound spring P/N 204524A (scroll to the bottom of the page: https://www.gokartsupply.com/4044seri.htm) that allows the driven clutch to be mounted with the movable sheave and spring outboard instead of inboard. This solves my...

I am afraid you driven is installed wrong way. As you have it, the belt will go out of line when it shifts up. in the driver it will move to the right, on the driven to the left.

In 3b my engine did only 2600, I put the sping in 2a and get 4000 now. I will use the 4000 only for overtaking, normal running is about 3000 with the Throttle little bit released.

Re: CVT belt live

The 10 belts from China came, and I did ride, and eberything feels fine with the shorter reduction. And the bronce weights. But, after 500 Km the first belt broke.
I hope that the belt with Kevlar will last longer. Did anybody tried both types?

Re: Harley sportster crankcase hacked for tranny?

A 4stroke is not suitable, because engine and gear are in the same oil. Get an old 250 ccm 2 stroke, and put in a staight shaft with a puley instead of the crankshaft. This shaft has to be made by a mashineshop, but all other modificatons you can do with a saw.
