Define "old" motors please
Yes, huge difference in characteristics these engines have with different flywheel weights ie; light 848 flywheel in the EVO compared to the standard DS engine. The difference can be noticed in something as simple as revving the two in neutral side by side; the EVO will rev up almost twice as fast..holy shit what a difference that makes after shaving damn near 1 pound off the crank to get it neutral
Revs pretty quick & smooth as glass now
That is exactly where dropping the flywheel weight from a stock 4+ pounds to ~2 pounds makes a HUGE difference in handling.1100DS engine is far from "small" the crank comes in @ 23lbs without rods & pistons (counter weights are HUGE)......no wonder it's a bitch to flick around while spinning 6grand
No idea but that breadbox exhaust is...interesting.I posted this on the general hypermotard forum a while back but I'm not sure how many 1st gen owners read that forum.
In the picture below there is an aluminum side cover for the subframe. Does anybody know whether this part was ever produced? and who the manufacturer was? I think it might look good with a Termignoni full system (2-1). I contacted QD Exhaust and they don't know.

Hey I dont know where you can get that but, I did find this if it helps!Thanks for the replies. I contacted QD Exhaust prior to posting because they feature this photo on their website. I figured since the made the exhaust system they might know which company made the aluminum trim pieces for the subframe. No luck though. From what I can tell, these were never produced.
that's baffling. The LSx forged crank I recently used in a build was only 47lbs!
