    Battery terminal location

    Your pictures show your battery on its side. Take the battery out and see for yourself.

    Battery terminal location

    I have this situation in another section and some members suggested laying the battery on its side. The battery box is a snug fit to the battery so I don't believe this is possible. Suggestions of rotating the battery 180 degrees would require at least one cable(the negative one) extended. Picture of stock installation attached. I'm also carrying out a fruitless conversation with Yuasa about this.

    Hey guys. Thanks for the input. I don't see how the battery could be laid on its side. The battery box is a snug fit to the battery and dimensionally it couldn't work in my view. It's 6"tall and 3.437"wide. Can't see 6" fitting in a 3.437" space. Please send pictures of your installations.

    CAUTION: O2 Sensor Advice

    are you talking only people with yoshis? i have an akra ti, with the o2 sensor plugged in (per 2wdw advice). no clue if there is a change if it is unplugged, though, too sissy to do things not in the instructions when it comes to this bike lol

    Kickstand not retracting completely

    I'd say crusty, clean and grease or just shoot it with some lube.

    Kickstand not retracting completely

    Hmm I'll try that. I did lowside the bike years ago but this problem only appeared recently.

    Thanks. I'm hoping there's nothing different / odd / unforeseen between this motor and the one that I pulled, from an installation perspective. I'm not sure what cams! It was already a "built" superbike engine, and is only being rebuilt. The only thing new (other than consumables, like bearings, etc.), were the pistons, because they needed replacement. I can ask what cams, butt I'm pretty sure they were some good ones (I know that isn't super technical, lol). I need to check up on that anyway! A friend of mine building an R7 engine just got his pistons, and I think they are the same brand that I'm waiting for, so maybe mine are on the way...

    Kickstand not retracting completely

    Have you checked, cleaned and lubricated the pivot point? Does it look bent? Any Crash damage?
  15. I've just noticed when I flip my kickstand up it doesn't go up all the way unless I give it an extra nudge. Does the spring wear out or is there something I can adjust?

    Hey Jeff, have fun installing your motor. I just spent the last few days installing my "B" motor. So many things to connect... With your race motor being built, if I might ask, which cams will you be using?

    We made them from scratch. I actually had the rubber stoppers in a random box of parts that I got from the previous owner. I think that he was going to install these but never did. You can find them in most parts places. I think they are about 1-1.5" long, and maybe .75-1" diameter. Then some rivet nuts. We just used aluminum spacers and machined them to contour to the frame. Robem had instructions that were very helpful. Thanks, but it was all the work of Paul, at Motospace garage, in Houston.

    Where did you source these steering stops? I'm interested and curious. I remember Robem had them, but seems like it was discontinued. Nice work BTW.

    I was similarly confused when I received a replacement battery. After a bit of head-scratching I figured that the terminal orientation is fine when the battery lays on its side. Example pic below of a Yuasa YTZ10S - when the writing on the side of the case faces up, the terminals are in the correct position.

    Removed the swing arm and rear linkage and removed, cleaned and packed with grease, all of the needle bearings. Also cleaned the swing arm and inside of frame. Put a new OEM chain guard one, but it's useless, and I'm waiting on a plastic one from a friend. Stock engine arrived! Will put the swing arm back on and start the engine install on Wednesday.

    I invented that and am living off the royalties. That's what funds my racing budget.

    Mass reduction update. Even though I'll be down about 7hp having to run this stock engine for now, the weight loss makes up for that with its commensurate gain in power-to-weight ratio, so I'm "effectively" only going to be down a little with this current set up.

    Thanks. We're on track to have it done early next week (Feb. 3rd); assuming no major delays in the remaining things on order or in progress. Still looking for a lightweight front wheel...
