Thats cool.  I haven't seen that one before.

 

For what its worth, these guys install one building a motorcycle powered 4x4 "power wheels" kart.  And they hook it a 100hp engine.

This is linked to where he explains the "chaincase" function, then in the further videos, you can see how they integrate and use it.

Just trying to provide useful info, not instruct you two on how to do your build.

I will check that out.  Useful information is almost always accepted.

Merciless Mings (an [some say the] authority on these particular cars) posted on his instant grams about a particular car he just rebuilt/fixed/tuned/something or other.  He commented on how much fun it was to drive.  The vidja of a Z-600 following this particular N-600 out of his shop's driveway onto the main street looked spirited and spritely enough, and it sounds pretty awesome.  I'm back to wondering if a rebuilt stock donk would be quick enough to be "quick enough."

 

Of course, a bike motor would Yasiin Bey be "quick enough" and could sound like an F1 car... and would probably come out cheaper.

And the e-mail I just got from John containing the words, "FYI the 2003-2006 CBR600RR has 107hp at 13,500rpm and 48tq at 10,000rpm." has me convinced to go this route... today.

The "at 13,500rpm" is an instant attention getter....

I think this video puts to rest, for me at least, any thoughts of doing an electric conversion.  I watched it yesterday and my brain still hurts from all the stuff involved.

 

 

 

And batteries still suck.

I wonder.

 

Is he wearing orange gloves because he is handling high voltage battery packs?

Yes and no.  He does don a set of electrically rated gloves for this video but I believe the orange mechanic gloves are one of his "trademark things."  He goes into detail about his choice of gloves, and how he had the orange ones made special for him, in a different video.  Toby Honest, I never even noticed he wore orange gloves until he talked about them in that other (marketing his line of stuff) video.

Living close to a section of freeway that is, apparently, a popular hooning spot, I'm always hearing sport bikes wringing the piss out of their donks, making that lovely "Formula One" sound.  And every time I think, "My N600 NEEDS to sound like that!"  

 

Of course, when some hoon with a V8 does the same thing, it makes me glad I have a Dajiban to make THOSE noises!
