I'll upload some pics this weekend hopefully. finally received the last of my electronics so I can start working on wiring the microsquirt unit. and I'm hoping to start my fiberglass work on the electronics box next week. then it's off to the fabrication shop for a custom intake manifold for the throttle body.

Alright so I ordered a finalized can sprocket it came in and I specified the wrong size bolt holes. So need to order up another set but looks like I can finally supply sprockets here shortly. Other news I received my bbr high flow filter I can't believe I waited so long to order one. Thing is freaking huge! Finalized my wiring the other day. Now waiting for a buddy of mine to have free time to weld up my fuel tank and intake manifold and we'll be set!

Welp ditched the EFI purchased a 28mm carb. Got the bike all wired up. The cam sprocket I received way back when had the incorrect bolt holes drilled in it. Waiting for my new one to ship to me. In the next few weeks I’ll be ordering up the final parts. I did check all clearances and the valve/piston all clear beautifully. Going to hopefully be all done by the 1st half of October.

The project isn’t dead. Was just sleeping lol.

Yeah it should be pretty solid hopefully. Honestly it could of been a lot easier work wise I just made some decisions that made it more complicated. I could repeat it and simplify it. I might do another some day just smaller bore. Frustration is why it’s taken so long. The EFI killed a lot of my momentum. Oh well lol

Ha that is pretty funny. The final cam sprocket came in on Friday. Waiting for my exhaust parts to come in this week some time. Otherwise I have just about everything now. Going to spend some time on it this week. I hoping end of the month it can be ready to fire if all goes well.

Haha yeah you guys will. I’m working on the ugly intake manifold for now. At some point I’d like to 3D print and then cast a nice smooth one.

But I’ve gotta use the tools I have for now. Exhaust parts should be here either tomorrow or Friday other than a few tabs a brackets I have to make.

Did some more work today. Got the front half of the exhaust set up. (Some pinholes need to be welded. Also made a new intake manifold and got that all done. Basically need to finish the exhaust install the clutch and theoretically fire it up! So hopefully by next weekend we will be running. Once it runs and seems fine I’m going to do a quick tear down to repaint the frame, cerakote the exhaust and a few other things. I’m getting excited!

Well if all goes well I should have it fired up this weekend!
I had to order a new clutch pack and clutch hub.I had broken my basket so I ordered a raptor 125 one-off eBay assuming it was the same. It is not the basket fits the engine but the clutch pack hub and pressure plate are all different size than the ttr and appear more heavy duty. I’ll post some pics later.

took it out last weekend and had wicked clutch slip. I need to take the cover off and see if something isnt right but otherwise it ran decent. hard to really mess with it with those problems.
