And that's coming from a Canadian!!!!
I live in least regulated state in the USA...we don't even have vehicle inspections...
Kids stuff. look what this Brit built in his shed - seriously..
Pfft, only 10 cylinders? Try this on for size:
I bet he's got a very nice shed, too.
A bit ungainly I would say. If you want a 12 potter try Allen's KZ2300
Allen Millyard builds some awesome and crazy motorcycles
Ugh. Sometimes, less is more.
(Referring to the star spangled monstrosity... the Trump of motorcycles?)
Alright, one more, only because I think it leaves little to the imagination as to what building large bikes like this is all about.
I don't think there are too many 12 cylinder bikes that could be considered "gainly", but that KZ is about as close as it comes, I'd imagine.
He does. And the free time to build so many interesting machines, including a HUGE V-twin based on radial aircraft cylinders.
FJ1200, which is basically the son of XJ, with a very similar engine, used different carburetor boots/holders when sold in Germany in order to clear their HP regulations in some way. They have a smaller internal diameter, and with all other things being equal lower the output of the engine.
If you really wanted to use an XJ as a low-power bike the way to go would be restrictor plates fit between carbs and engine.
I'm suggesting a small piece of pvc that would fit inside the spring and not touch the diaphragm
Ok Back on topic. Get an XJ600 Diversion (seca2) and fit these.. much better option all round.
Yes there is, just Google alpha technik xj 700 and there it is, a 25 kw kit.
This is the européan way....
Not as many cylinders, but ......there's always:
Current world record holder--- 48 cylinders
ByHertfordshire Superbike Centre
I bet doing valve clearances on THAT one sure would be confusing! Lol
I love that bike, and the story behind it. Best use of a Chevette ever!!
2-stroke. Meanest sounding bumble bee...
