Re: Kubota Z482 Bike in Ohio

Yeah this is my internet friend Jefferson. I've not seen the bike but I am sure it is the cat's meow having seen the other work he has done on his diesel vw bus etc. So Im sure it is worth the pretty penny he is asking for it.

Re: Could this be the start if Sluggy II?

Coach, you are perfectly correct on both counts. The engine is a stressed member so forms the lower part of the frame, not dangling from the head though as I thought this would not be a good engineering solution but through the cast iron block. Seen this done with Tiger's though it was factory that...

Re: Could this be the start if Sluggy II?

so you have gone to a "block/chassis" configuration?? as in the engine block is now a structural part of the bike chassis with it bolted between frame members ? or is there a basket still there for engine to sit on independently and just can't see it in pic?

CVT Behavior right or not?

having problems with my KLR diesel.

Roll the bike only inches and the cvt locks in and no longer can roll bike unless strong enough to overcome engine compression. (which I am not) Would think could roll it without engine running.... or am I wrong?

Am partial to adventure bikes myself. Id get a shaft drive smaller 3cyl Adventure bike or a big version of a 2cyl shaft bike (does that exist?) and build yourself your own version of a Track Bike. Only thing would do different is stack chain drive and CVT. CVT married to the universal Joint that dri...

Re: KLWinter - Recently Affected Diesel Addict in TN, USA

IMHO...... you got a great start. Suspect that like most shaft drive bikes there is very few axle ratios available. Could be wrong but typically that is the case. I like CVT, but suggest you consider a chain and sprocket combo running diagonal up or downward to one side, THEN the CVT powered off of ...

Re: New build- 1974 Guzzi Eldo and Kubota 902

with a shaft bike you have another option... Chain AND CVT. Run a chain up to one side of the bike.... and a CVT down back to Shaft. This gives you adjustable ratios by changing sprockets. Few diesel ATV's went this route. The chain in their case was done to increase RPM at the first CVT pulley so i...

He started with a 418 yanclone but it was bad. He has swapped to something else... looks to be an iron block. Kubota maybe? Z482
