Joe Meyer bought a kit off me a couple of years back and had a few issues after some mileage. Well Joe has just been back in touch and made a suggestion of running a tooth belt instead of the vee belt. The problem is that its a double sided belt and double sided tooth belts are even more rare. Anyway I did some home work and what do you know, there is now available a tooth belt thats in the ball park length wise. With a little bit of jiggling I can get this in our already revised kit. This will take a lot of load off the crank outrigger bearings as the belt wont need to be so tight to get drive. So we get 100% drive, no belt slip so consistant boost and give the bearings an easy time. So I'm on it guys and will try and get the new stuff machined up by the end of January.
I attach some photo's of the plenum and drive train as it is now produced. It's all CNC'd. The IC is still an issue as far as looks are concerned and we may revisit that again. IF anyone has idea's send me some sketches lets see if we can improve on that element as well.

By the way the Audi S5 V8 kit is awesome. 11.4 sec 1/4's at 120+ terminals. for whoever was asking

Mine's sleeping now, -10c... The SC has been working now but I had little troubles with it , first the oil leak and then I got new parts and installed them but the belt wheel sometimes made contact with base plate and it got loose and broke the shaft. My bad and again i needed some new parts which Richard then sent to me. After that no mechanical problems but i did not find anyone how could tune it with sert so i bought PCV and modded the map from PC3 and it was bit rich. This summer i installed the Autotune on it and it got much better but sometimes it lost idle. Maybe some kind sensor problem , also sometimes when I hit the redline on full gas it goes in to error mode. I have rode only maybe 4000 km with the SC , this summer was awful even in our scale and I mostly just rode to work and used my Deuce most of the time

Simply my observations: I save on CNC by making the plenum for air only. The blowby can go in a much less expensive can or better yet, be routed to a crank evac system at the exhaust. The blower oil can might be better separate as well, it will add a lot of heat to the charge you are trying to get rid of ! I'd skip the intercooler, or at most make it an option. I haven't seen anything yet to demonstrate they are cost effective on the VROD.

I THOUGHT YOU HAD A FRONT MOUNT IC FOR YOUR RACE SET UP USE THAT.. I THINK MOST WOULD LIKE IT UP FRONT.. HOW MUCH DOES THAT SMALL UNIT ON THE SIDE REALLY DO.. I WILL WAIT ANOTHER MONTH OR SO WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THIS ON BEFORE SPRING GETS HERE ..SEEMS YOU HAVE 95% OF THIS COMPLETED TAKE A COUPLE OF 5HR ENERGY SHOTS AND GET THE BRAIN WORKING..

AS I WAS CORRECTED ABOVE GET THE PARTY FINISHED..

Heat is an issue - moving the blower oil tank away from the top of the engine is a great idea. I also plan on proofing with and without the IC. The blowby was a mess. Joe

Not on sides - I just want to see a SC kit that works. I am the TTS high mileage beta tester. Others might be the drag strip tester (nitro) or show bike guy, or whatever, but I want to see superchargers on vrods. Hurry up - I can test 2 at once - I do have 2 vrods! I would buy a third if there is another manufacturer willing to step up! I rode over 25K this last 12 months, so I have plenty of milage to apply to a system. Richard's system is several evolutions ahead of yours, and as soon as you send me a kit to put on and rack up some mileage, I can help isolate the bugs. We (Ann and I ) have done 10 sets of tire changes since January (but moved here needing a set on hers). I buy AMSOIL by the gallon, and ride just about every day. I have prototyped and beta tested many parts. I am willing to test anything, as long as it does not hurt my bike (like blow up my motor) or is unsafe. So long as everything is based on sound engineering, I am in, and live in a place where I can ride all year. Best of all, I do it for free. I proof about 1 part a month - like making a part fit when they say it does not. Or develop simple mods - like spacers for A model bars, to raise them an inch.
Keep working on your system, and TTS will continue to refine his. I help everybody, and the results speak for themselves. I also harvest feedback from the rallies and runs I go on, and pass that back. Lastly, I turn my own wrenches, so can provide real lessons learned as a customer. I welcome innovation, and look forward to completing a reliable system that everyone wants, including the factory! Imagine a contract with the OEM! Or better, a whole model built around a supercharged revolution motor. HD does not do the R&D on stuff like this - we do, and then they buy it. Look at trikes, softails, fat tires. All were prototyped by men like Richard, and Brian, and Lehman. So, let's do it! Joe
