1) Why ti rods and billet crank on a 1350 Busa class motor?

2) you do know that the Airtech "B" is designed to work with a Gen 1 and not a Gen 2?
[/quote]

For one reason.. it has better oiling with the straight shot oiling system and the crankshaft is not cross drilled like factory OEM cranks!!
Another is with Titanium rods you have less reciprocating weight which is ideal when your humming at redline at 12,000 RPM for 90 seconds and it provides less stress on the big end.

Another reason is.. because John can!!! its in his budget!!!!


He also wanted the same Bullet Proof parts that were used on our N/A Equipped record holding motors that went 254MPH At Bonneville, 239MPH at the 1.5 and 234MPH at the 1.0 and lastly the 217MPH 1.0 mile and 220MPH  1.5 mile  Production bike !!! shocked grin  All that still stand!!!  Oh and the 296 MPH 1 mile and 311 MPH Blown engine I built.

Any more questions?

Steve,

With all due respect, look at how these post/questions took place and under what conditions. 

A relatively new guy shows up and says he wants to run a 1350 class Busa motor with the Airtech "B".  Makes a statement that the engine is going to be built on the east coast with Ti Rods and a billet 65 mm crank, without the name of the builder until a few post later. 

We both have seen waaaay too many folks throw their money away on "wanabee engine builders" not to ask a few questions...

Understood!! Someone did say they look like steel carrillos after my name was mentioned. So I just wanted to set them straight. Obviously they never used Crower H beam Ti!! Look for our team to try to set the Naked N/A record this yr with a new 1700cc combination. 220 is our lucky number!! Good luck ro everyone this yr and Happy New Years!!!

Well still waiting on the fairing for the Busa so I started a Buell Blast for my daughter to run in P/PP 500. So far I pulled the motor, removed the top end and checking what I can without pulling it all apart. I picked up a nice set of Thunderstorm heads and a couple of Wiseco Thunderstorm dome pistons and a NOS jug. Tonight I cut a new squish band and cut .0014 off the head, the measurements I took looked like I needed to cut .0018 so tomorrow I'll bolt it up and check the squish and valve clearance re cut the head if needed then port it.

Ha your right .014 that's my dyslexia showing. Got the head done, resurfaced the valves and some porting just need to polish the exhaust port. I'll bet you a Coke I can reset and skim .001, I have a 250 head to do soon. I'll try it

the squish in the Thunderstorm head was 15 deg, the squish on the piston was 10 deg. Soooo after re-cutting the the squish to ten deg I ended up taking .045 off the head. Everything clears,so now I need to cc the head.
