Make a Bimota SB6 Replica from Suzuki GAG.How to GAG engine to 50mm long stroke and self-starter part 3

It can modify the Suzuki GAG, the self-starting and 50mm stroke.
The method is this.
The birdie on the flywheel side 50
The crank of GAG to the clutch side

Both, fill in welding the holes in the crank pin. And it re-drilling.

First, create a piece for the press in order to fill this hole.
I use a heat-treated (In Japan is referred to as a Maruetchi) rod of chromium-molybdenum steel.
SS400 it is weldability of (ordinary steel) is good.
But I gave priority to it to match the material. Perhaps the crank shaft would also be chromium molybdenum steel.

If you design a pin for the strong press fit, it is advisable to loose the angle of the chamfer.
Chamfer angle will fail to press will be nibbled's normal 45 °.

Clutch side is provided an oil passage.
This is something for supplying engine oil to the connecting rod.
So the piece of the clutch side make a hole in 4φ.

I press fitted with a hydraulic press.

This insufficient contact surface of the connecting rod big end is when you stroke up.
So it will weld.
Cleaning the surface of the place to be welded with a belt sander.

And I was welding, by TIG.

The next step is to make a hole in it.

We have participated in the Mei Han Sportsland Mota GP November 1, 2015. Riding on SR400.

Course of Motard might jump,dirt and asphalt. wikipedia

I was bought up muffler, but it was late.
I participated in the remains of megaphone muffler.

This bike body is almost normal.
However, the wheel only it is to 17 inches. Using the Excel rim. (Normal is 18 inches of SR400)

Front 3.00
Rear 4.00

Tires Dunlop α-13
Front 110 / 70R
Rear 150 / 70R

I was an oil change and a wire lock properly, the day before.

This bike is only bank angle of the right is very shallow, so rub the muffler.
I had a hard time.

muffler band had rubbed to rank. So I, tipped band. I was on the orientation of the head of the screw.
This little bit it became better.

This SR to improve by little. .
-Up muffler attached.
- It will not slide the slippery sheet.
-Play is too much, it will improve the rear brake response is poor.
-The hand guard I attached.
It is after this, but construction plans that Osaka Motorcycle Show in March.

I participated with Sugimoto (older brother) 's in this race.
He is still riding in DR250 of Shishido.
It's a bike that was the revival of the miracle.
I remember those days.

I was fun.
This is because, since I was a long time that run the circuit.

I went to see the EV DeLorean in Hiroshima Marina hop.

Great scott!!!

October 21, 2015 it's the day that DeLorean went in the time slip, In the movie Back to the Future.
To celebrate it, the event was held.
Location Marina hop. It shopping mall in Hiroshima.
I went to see the EV DeLorean there.

The EV DeLorean is what was modified the DeLorean to the electric car.
Mr. Fujii becomes ringleader, DeLorean EV activation group has been produced.

Instead of the engine, battery and motor is equipped.
Incidentally DeLorean's rear engine. Front Luggage space.

They started the EV modify before the Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf will be released.
In cooperation with Hiroshima University and venture companies and comrades, and was completed in March 2009.
Their blog is here ↓(writen in japanese)

Since that time, they have to improve this many times.

In this improvement, we have to be able to charge in the hydrogen gas. By mounting the hydrogen engine generator.

The hydrogen engine generator, we have made. We are very happy!

They were modified to enter the generator in the luggage space.
Remove the cover, to make the stay in welding.
It could demo operation. That it was completed in a short period of time will be impres
We also had a hard time to make this generator. So, it is clear to see when the hard processability trace.

The next Toyota Mirai was also on display. I felt that was in the future.
In Japanese , Meaning of mirai is future.

Left, Hiroshima University, Ichikawa associate professor. Central, me (Araki). Right, EV Delorean producerMr Fujii.

And, ammonia fuel engine is what we are to try at the time of the now in October 2015.
The cylinder can make lighter than for hydrogen

Now, it has been found that can be run if you mixed hydrogen and gasoline. Research is doing as lacking in ammonia separately.

20150920 I went to Lake Biwa Sportsland All Japan Supermoto Championship.

I went to help the Shishido's.
In Lake Biwa Sportsland All Japan Supermoto Championship.

Confluence with Sugimoto big brother.
Race day there quite free time.
"I'm recently riding on SR500," I Tsu said. Then, he taught me a lot of genealogy from the XT500.

I did not know, such as the name of HL500 is.
He knows anything!
Why he can not use that memory to another? I am it is a question.

This huge tool box becomes cot. It is a load capacity 80kg. Convenient.
The day of most of the race is up early. So it will take a nap.

Why Motard are not wearing the tire of the on-road to off-road bike?
That is because there is a dirt section. Asphalt section called tarmac.

Shishido-san, had challenged the fight in motocross, in the city riding bikes.
It seems that he can run that satisfactory, is decent.

Chain caulking SR400

We were caulking the chain of Naoyan'sSR400.
This is what he was riding at the time of high school students.

Big bike is caulking chain.
(Small bike clip-on)

Caulking tool is required, to you caulked the chain.
However, it is not only occasionally used was the most people.
So, you'll borrow it.

And I'm side lend. . .

I went to see the progress of his work in Naoyan's home.
So, with a crimping tool.
Oh! The rear suspension has been fixed!

He assembled already around the rear wheel. With the exception of the chain.
Tire, wheel bearing, sprocket, all new.

When I was a while after arriving, I noticed. Dramatic photos that can be taken if you take in the backlight.

He just bought this building.It has not yet pulling electric power.
So there is no lighting in the room. It is good lighting.
No indoor lighting + backlight is very good. I use this method in the future.

Fix the chain

Caulking of the chain I've done. Therefore, no image.

Mileage is 47,000 km.
You should look for the things this is small when you buy a used motorcycle.
But, his bike mileage is equal to the number of memories.
Still extending from here.

The grip's for TZM of my favorite Yamaha genuine!
I was very sympathetic.
Incidentally, part number
47X-26241-00 Left
47X-26242-00 Light

Clutch lever is broken. From the root.

His bike is waiting for the time of resurrection. Be quiet.
