    A big part of where EngMod2T is today is from you sharing your test results so generously. I do thank you!

    .
    It just occurred to me that Roberts JR bike was converted to Yamaha pipes dimensions and I think porting in 2000, I wonder if that was by proxy also Honda A Kit. like the KTM also seem to have been, It might explain why that Cagiva came alive in 1995 and why Cagiva and Yamaha keep changing bore and stroke and exhaust porting.

    The Roberts stuff was all Bud Askland , in mid 1999 I was at his workshop and he already had the new square 5KE cylinder and Kit pipe dimensions on the drawing board.
    He had a Czech CNC anemometric flow machine running , as did Yamaha in 1999 according to Suzan the head engineer I met at Philip Island where Jaques finalized the 250 title.
    Suzan ( ringlish name ) said that with the flow machine he did not need a dyno anymore , and he had brought a set of 500 cylinders with him, that would give a bunch of top end power to suit the track.
    No idea though what was done to the Cagiva at the time , a bit before I started getting into the pits.
    Ive got a thing thats unique and new.To prove it I'll have the last laugh on you.Cause instead of one head I got two.And you know two heads are better than one.

    Some of the results will help others, but hey all this thing can win is a National Trophy for a set period racebike, big deal , so I feel no need to be a secret squirrel.
    The 3XV roadbike has "normal" 5 transfers that can be Apriliaized , and the Ex duct exit hits 0.8Mach at the 50 Hp level with no welding needed.

    Not quite as cool as a Kart World Title , but I have a bunch of those already.

    And the idea was born based on your advise: to get power, you have to balance the STA's... thank's a lot for sharing all the wisdom with us!

    Around 94 Cagiva changed its bore and stroke to 54x54 and in my Cagiva album are these pics these would be looking at them much earlier.
    George V.....(the short fella)whose last name escapes me came from HRC to Cagiva about the time they started to get competitive.
    my understanding was yamaha helped Cagiva but maybe the tech went both ways....they even went to Keihin carbs at the same time.

    On this model, the "V" bank of the 4-cylinder engine was widened from 70 to 75 degrees in order to allow an increased air box capacity. A "T" type exhaust port (existing 3-port layout changed to 2-port) known for its excellent pick-up characteristics was also adopted experimentally on this model. This combined with a new crank assembly spec and a higher drive shaft position to achieve improved handling stability. On this machine Cadalora mounted the winners podium twice with 2nd-place finishes and twice with 3rd place to finished the season ranked 6th
    in 98 they went to Honda owned Keihin carbs a well.
    it's just supposition of course.

    No, TCW3 oils are made for cool and slow spinning engines.
    Believe me, didn't work well on mopeds, chainsaws, and scooters

    CNC inserts done for the big piston/head shape shootout - 4 pairs.
    Head covers awaiting some material.
    Just have to spend a couple of days grinding ports - my favorite job , Not - then have the plating done.

    i remember seeing a post showing the layout of a thermosyphon system with thermostat.
    By wobbly I think.
    The search function isn't finding it for me.
    Anyone keep a copy or know where it is ?

    thanks

    Thanks Husa for that. Memory said it was thermosyphon.
    Now looking at pump drives.

    for your application look at how a KTM50 drives it

    They just drive it off a tab nut on the mag shaft. they have also the sexiest tiny mag you will see. they later ones are digital.
    or off the third shaft and accept they have to leave it in gear on the grid

    Wonder how long a tool battery would drive an electric pump? If of course you don't have an alternator. A Turbo booster brushless pump worked well on the MB100.
    But I did have the CR250 stator and ignitech. Never sagged voltage on the dyno.
    Don't you look at my accountant.
    He's the only one I've got.
