Lars,

Bike  looks  really good!

Consider placing a shield between the tire and the air filter.  You may hit a wet spot and soak the half of the filter next to the tire.

Thanks !...but one can hardly call it "engineering",
more like The Oops-what-did-I-do-now-sh*t-I-have-to-do-that-System

Thank you Sumo

Naaa: that is a carefully engineered, well thought out, sophisticated hi-tech, PRMWST system.
You know : Passive Random Mechanical Water Injection Tuning

If THAT fails ( depending on the weather situation ), I will be ready with the incredible SAHI optional equipment:
( Space Age Hand-held Injection )








Seriously: thanks Geo, I hadn't thought of that.

Lars, my Triumph has a pair of those Keihin CV's.  They can be tricky to jet, but when they are set up, they work very well in a wide variety of conditions.  I am very happy with mine and yours should give you good service.

I've got one of those carbs on my Indian, on a superb Indian Parts Europe manifold. Not tried it yet. Hey Lars, that's a nice bit of welding.

Thanks all' for your input !!!

Wish i could afford SAHI injection. cheers
But you CAN:
PayPal 1000$ to H2O@I'lltakethemoneyandrun.com
and I'll ship it to you right away.


WooooooHaaaaaaaaa, wazz'that :



Yep: a bolt-on electric starter kit, for owners of INDIAN CHIEFs with weak knees,
made by a guy in Germany.
Just happens to fit right on my bike as well, as it shares gear-box and kick-starter set-up
with the CHIEF
If it can start the beastly CHIEF ( 1300 cc / 80 cu. in.) it can certainly start my tiny low-compression 600cc.
The starter motor is the same one that runs some big Sportster HD.
Expensive ? Not really; it was cheaper than the cheapest basic roller-starter
I could find ( !!! )

Another  (of many ) "This-is-what-I-should-have-done-from-the-start" moments.
Auuurgh!



Remove kick-starter and mount the bracket ( yellow circle )
on the kick starter 'rod' attached to the frame ,
then the back-plate , and the cogwheels etc




and cover ( loose test set-up on pic )




and mount starter motor from behind




Now I "just" need to make a few adjustments, move the oil-catch tank and find a new place for the battery
and then hopefully final mounting and test-run today.

Here's the heart of the matter; the sprag clutch ( or "one-way bearing" , one might call it ).
Never seen one of them before








....now back to work. I'm seriously running out of time here.

Blimey, Lars, I bet that wasn't cheap! Will you be running it from your standard battery, or using a slave unit? I'm struggling to find room for a small wheelchair battery on mine.

Mmmm: 'cheap' is a relative term , ain't it ?

It was cheaper than the most basic 'roller-starter' that I could find on the market
and
 had I opted for something a bit more fancy, ( but still not the most expensive )
like the good looking sturdy roller-starter from Italy; I would have had to pay twice (!)
as much as I paid for the above set-up.

So; in a way; ....yes; cheap.

..Will you be running it from your standard battery, or using a slave unit?...
I don't have a 'standard battery' per se, as I don't have no alternator ,
so I was still trying to make up my mind about a battery for this 'total-loss' battery/ignition system.

May want to go for this:  MOTY DESIGN batteries

Dunno.


Now back to work................been delayed as I had to fix my daily ride.

Of course you could always keep the battery in a cart and just attach leads at the starting line, I think the fellows with the indian streamliner could loan you one?
