Here are the parts needed, this is coming from Bill Staab on Rogue...NinerPilot said:Yeah, I plan on adding a 02-03 swingarm to mine. Is this something that is done fairly easy?
I had one of my sponsors (Haigh Aviation, a custom CNC and FAA certified machine/welding shop) make up the spacers according to WSTAAB's write up. That was the only machining. Unfortunately, the person I purchased the swingarm from must have been a strip em' and sell em' shop (not a chop shop, just hamfisted), as he beat up the castle nuts pretty badly and never quite understood what I was asking for in the parts list. A Rogue member (MRGRN) just sent me the rear brake caliper out of the kindness of his heart and wouldn't take any money :thumb:booth23 said:Swingarm is beautiful man :clap: How hard was it to convert? Did you have to machine anything? Keep up the good work. :thumb:
I haven't decided on where to put it yet and it's currently sitting in the battery box. I am redoing the electrics from the ground up and am relocating the battery and starter relay to a spot just below the oil filter (ala Thorsten's setup). All of the crap (can't believe how much cabling there is on this bike) that is around and behind the battery is being moved to where the battery originally lived and then the subframe will get chopped and channeled.Pete said:Hubba-hubba!
Abtech, where's the preload adjuster, did you run it up inside the subframe?
I have the entire document if anyone might be interested. I hesitate to post it here without the authors' permission.booth23 said:Here are the parts needed, this is coming from Bill Staab on Rogue...
"These are the Honda parts necessary for a 02 swingarm conversion. 02 swingarm, pivot bolt, nut, washer, frame inserts left and right. What is missing in the picture is an 02 rear brake caliper mount, longer chain, and the bushing for the hole in the rear of the engine cases where the pivot bolt passes through "
Huh?abtech said:We have been working with a developer on some "slightly" higher oxygenated fuel that should attain even better compression ratios than available with a full piston refit.
Here's my guess... It's not nearly as hard to get more fuel into the cylinder as it is to get more air in the cylinder. This is we have a turbochargers, for example, and not high powered gas injectors. With an oxygenated fuel, you can run fatter at a given throttle setting and get, effectively, a higher air/fuel ratio. All without a whirring fan and compression lag...G-Man said:Huh?
You can only alter the cylinder compression ratio by altering the cylinder volume at full squish, either by increasing the piston height or lowering the head surface. Even assuming that changing fuel density could increase the compression ratio (which the amount it would vary would almost be immeasurable), an oxygenated fuel would always compress more than standard fuel at identical volumes.
A/F ratio has nothing to do with the cylinder compression ratio. Yes, running an oxygenated fuel allows you run you fuel delivery slightly fatter just as you can with a higher volume air filter (although filters are not a good option for the RC in most cases) but that does not alter the compression ratio of the cylinder at full compression. Once again that can only be achieved by changing either the static volume of the cylinder (hi-comp pistons or heads) or by compressing the A/F charge itself (turbos or supercharging).spillover said:Here's my guess...
