Rider Needs some quick Help!!
« on: August 18, 2009, 07:51:41 PM »
Hi All,
   I just received an email from a BUB entrant who needs something ASAP.
He is signed up for a gas class, but wants to also enter into a fuel class.

He needs to install some form of 12V inline fuel shutoff solenoid (as required by the rules), and a handelbar mounted switch he can activate without hands leaving the bars.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure.

I will direction him to this forum as soon as I'm done here.

His bike is an older Honda 750 (carburated).

Thanks
Drew

This doesn't need to be overly complicated. Have the rider call Schnitz Racing etc and order up a nitrous "fuel" solenoid, with the appropriate fittings, he can mount it in-line with the fuel line just like a fuel filter. I assume he already has an ignition kill tether switch, if not he can order one at the same time. It will be simple to power up the solenoid with with the ignition power supply and then both the tether switch and handlebar "run" switch will kill both his ignition and fuel. If time is a factor, there are fuel solenoids commonly used in industrial diesel engines and he may be able to get a 12 volt version.

Drew, there are multiple manufacturers of fuel solenoids, lots of them used in N20 applications.  If his old Honda has an engine kill rocker switch on the throttle side, he can tie into that to apply and kill power to the solenoid.

    John, I knew you would get a quick answer.
Please check the forum often. Even if a topic doesn't relate directly to you,
for the most part it is all good stuff, relating to landspeed racing.

I too thank you guys for helping John.

My plate is heaped full with numerous last minute tech. questions,
and I just knew he'd get a fast response here.

Lastly, John, be careful around these sidecar guys...they're a little...
oh nevermind. :-D :-o :roll:
Ha Ha

Drew Gatewood :cheers:

754, your passport renewal was rejected. You will need to enter the USA from the Mexican Border to be able to get to B'ville again.

That also requires a regression thru Mexico to get back to CallonnA so your Mother can make breakfast for u.

Forget that you know me. I can not vouch for you. My wife will cut me off if I lie to protect you.

If u don't follow my instructions, I won't see u again at Salt Talks.

I assume your "single stick" reference is to the single overhead cam.  My bike is a 1975 CB750 K5 which is almost exactly like the sandcast 1969's.  It's a great old bike and has the single overhead cam.  My old college buddy and I are riding it (he is the monkey).  So it is not just a wheel on a stick.  We are holding to the idea that a side hack should carry a person.

Cool where are you from?
 I got a lot of sohc 750s, and wanted to run it in sidecar but in 1000cc... did not happen yet.

 I rode my wore out 836 with Webers on it, to Bub in 07, barely made it back but hey.. 25 yrs that motor was together.. :-o

 Next one will be 970cc, good rods, to be able to run a blower later.

 I will find you if I get there.... check out the sohc4s forum.
