So how far should i push this on 87 octane? 😉 I'll put in 93 or 94 for race days with a bit more boost.
Tremendous work here!! Have you done the coolant nipples out the bottom before?

This is real important. My first tuner had my bike at 15:1 at almost peak tq. Pulled the plugs and sent a camera in to have a look.
Scotts prep on the pistons before he sent them to me (along with good fuel) saved the day. Pistons looked good. Was able to retune and now good to go!!! 🙂

yes i have. still undecided on pump location though. ill sort it out once the bike is back together. might end up making a new overflow jug to gain some room.

after running into an issue with the cam chain and having to work backwards for a bit, the motor is almost done, just the starter and clutch left.
i had grabbed what i thought was a gently used stock cam chain from my spares after taking out the very kinked chain. i quickly compared it to the "good" chain and thought that skips had stretched badly. that turned out to be wrong. when attempting to put the cams in, the new chain was too short! took it out and unbagged a new chain and the new chain was longer, basically the same as what came out of skip. so the unknown chain is now a mystery. it appears to be oem kawasaki by the look and markings on the links, and it fits the sprockets perfectly. im thinking that it may be a zx11 chain as i did a motor for a guy yrs(7 or 8) ago out of 2 busted engines. the jet ski motor thats based on the 12 engine has a chain that is longer, i know the zx14 chains are longer and dont fit the sprockets, the busa chain is longer and doesnt fit the sprockets. any of you work with many zx11s?
I knew i shouldnt have tried to be cheap and just ran the new chain from the get go lol

Ready to go back in some night this week and then I can finalize the water lines and heat exchanger set up.

As a recap this motor has the following.
Ported head by me, o-ringed by Carpenter racing. My custom beehive valve springs and machined smaller/lighter stock retainers. Stock cams at stock settings. Drop in Wossner pistons with my prep and polish treatment. APE cylinder studs at 70lbs. Cometic hg. Stock rods and stock crank. New rod bearings. New cam chain with a dedicated oil jet. 2 additional oil jets so that all 4 pistons get sprayed (oem configuration only sprays 2). Shimmed relief valve. Ported inlet and outlet of the oil pump. An extra section added to the oil pan for a bit of extra capacity. Unknown back cut trans with billet low first gear. It was in a bike Henry and I parted out. I used it a season in my red bike. 1 new shift fork. Billet clutch basket with my oiling mods done to the hub. 3 hd clutch springs (may or may not be enough?)

I think that's it.

Skip is alive once again! i still have some things to wrap up before the dyno, but its really close!

Im really happy with the oil pressure. the porting of the pump is something ill be doing on every build from now on. even with the 3 additional oil jets and the turbo robbing oil pressure, with 5w40 i have 30 psi at 1100 cold. and warmed up i have 100 psi at 10k!! forgot to check warm idle psi.

I decided that i wanted to get rid of the cheaper foam air filter as it interfered with the body work, and i wasnt sure i trusted it to flow enough for 325 hp or whatever i end up pushing this bike to. the short filters we use on stage 1 and 2 kits at work have been used up to 505 hp so i went with one of those. it didnt fit with the oil filter (could have used a relocator) so i cut and angled the inlet of the turbo to tip it away, and to match the angle of the body work. now the body fits without cutting a hole for a filter so its going to be maximum stealth 🙂

Calling it a day. Got all the part throttle mapping done and we get to turn up the boost tmrw. Bench flashing each fuel change sure takes a lot of time, but in the end I don't have to worry about an extra box on the bike.
