Haven't bought anything else. Nothing to take pics of lol. I'm not kidding about slow. It'll prolly be one purchase every 2 weeks (1 per payday) to slowly build it.

Powerplant change!

As much as I love the looks of the old Briggs in relation to this build, I struck a deal for something better suited. Sold my Cub Cadet 2166 to a fellow CF member a couple years ago. He's trading it back to me (somewhat). Powerplant will instead be a 16hp Kohler single with an electric pto, electric start, 15amp charging circuit, and best of all, oil pump with filter (kind of critical. The briggs was only a splash lube). I'm getting the engine, complete harness, PTO, everything I need to wire this in on the bike. Looks like I'm picking it up by this coming weekend!

After that, I get paid Monday, I'll see what I have left after bills. Hoping to go make an offer on that front end.

I was waiting to see when one of you was gonna catch that......

And I absolutely am committed. Why do you ask?

I need to run some new numbers. The Kohler runs 3600rpm, not sure what the acceptable margin is before it blows a flywheel. I might leave it at 3600, I might see if I can run to 4k.

I'm gonna have to find a new clutch system from what I was gonna run, the CVT I was looking at was rated for 3k max input. A clutch with a higher input rpm might run different ratios than the one I was looking at. If not, 3600-4k is already a higher top speed at the same gearing. With the extra rpm I might see about a change in gear ratios, give me more grunt at the lower speeds. I'm not worried about top speed, I'm more concerned with below 60.

Ok, quick numbers change. Simply going up to 3600rpm brings me to a 105.51 top speed. This thing doesn't need to go near that fast.

Dropping front sprocket from 18 to 14, and leaving rear at 46 brings me to 3.29 ratio, with an 82.10 MPH top speed at 3600RPM.

I think these will be the new numbers to go with. I'm ok with losing theoretical top end. I want to make sure there's plenty of pull at lower speeds.

Adding another part to my list of upcoming bits.

Coworker had a set of fish tails off his last Road Glide. Some more old style!
