The reason for using this engine as i already had it. The engine was built by ferracci in 93 for a guy in new zealand who raced in the bears series which sat in a home baked carbon mono frame. I have the paper clippings so it has a bit of history behind it. I was told he threw 20k at it for eraldo to do the entire engine and its good for 100 at the rear wheel which is a DSmotor anyways but lighter. It came 2nd in the series that year beating a ducati supermono ridden by robert holden but clobbered senseless by the britten.
The idea behind the bike is ultra lite weight, no electronics, injection, total loss ignition.... all the unnecessary crap that goes along for the ride on a 12 lap race so in the photo's at the mo its 109kg so far. I reckon 115kg on the startline in dec for its first race.
I bought a second hand fcr from ebay off a dirtbike and cut my banked pair in 2 and then used the linkage from the second hand one to get it working....I tapped -4 an fittings into the carb and run braided line from the tank. easy as.
I cut the long manifold to suit the angle of the carb that i wanted then tiged the billet stub from the carb directly to the manifold then ported it to take the step out. The action is twin pull only. don't bother about push/pull, already tested it.
