    first video I’ve put on YouTube so bare with me haha.

    took it for drive yesterday.....misfiring and banging......and bang!! Broke it just as it came on boost!! The bearing that holds the jack shaft (the sprocket that’s connected to the ending basically) shat itself!!! Must’ve been a crap housing. I’ll either make one or buy a bigger stronger one which obv involves a bit of fabrication on the powder coated frame which is slightly annoying!! Ok, very annoying!!!

    I think the misfiring is due to overfuelling. Makes sense as it’s a hayabusa turbo map just to get me going.....and they’re 200cc bigger engine than mine. I’ll try trim a vid of first drive and add it too.

    dont just, it’s early days 👍🏼 However......help is welcomed!!!!

      there we go. Firstly, in gear 🤦🏼‍♂️, and you can obv hear it’s super missing til it’s higher in the revs, which makes me think “over fuelling”. Hear the chatter just as it breaks! It’s a lumpy/different levelled road, hence having to go on and off throttle.

      clutch is on/off, so that maybe something I need to look at! Alter the pivot point or something to give a bigger throw!

        I can see them on a phone, but a 27" screen is better than a 6" screen.

              • Weel done in getting it running & driving, all be it for a short while. It's so much of a boost to get to that stage, it then give's you more enthusiasm to finish it. Keep up the good work.

                  • Morning guys (1am)

                    been busy with my new arrival, baby Eddie!! However, I’ve managed to get a couple hours in the garage earlier and have made a new bearing!! I made one a few weeks ago, but not too happy, so made this one.

                    I bought a new lathe too, a 1940’s Kerry. It’s an absolute machine, but trying to collect it and bring it home on my recovery truck was a ball ache! Weighing in at nearly 400kg!!

                    my auto spark text me earlier too.....just headlights to wire up and he’s finished with it, so should collect it tomor afternoon all going week! Have to pick up some lexan Windows first (decent guy meeting me half way)

                    ok, here’s some pics! If they work!! First is the first attempt at my own pillow block bearing! There’s a taper in the housing which allows the bearing to self centre, that proved difficult but worked and worked well 👌🏼

                    and here’s the new one from today

                    pictures are 90° and no idea what, apologies!

                    all made from solid steel and 6mm plate! Should be strong enough this time!! 😂

                    hopefully get it back together tomor! Then it’s a case of drilling the inlet and tapping for a temp sensor, seat belts, windows, and tart up! Oh......and a mapping session at emerald!! They have a massive wait, but I get on well with the guys there so may be able to get an evening session in!

                    Really quite excited!!

                    • Looking good. New born babies love the sound of motorbike engines... don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
