1370 Project - My Big Build - Part 7

Not a lot tonight - but I did receive a little item I have been mulling over for a while and pulled the trigger on. I really wanted an oil pressure gauge, and was looking for a way to mount it which looked good. I saw this one on ebay for a year or so now, and thought what the hell it is Christmas - http://www.ebay.com/itm/251193994646...84.m1439.l2649
The seller was great, you could order a water temp or oil pressure, and in black or white.

And today it arrived. The quality is great - slightly bigger then I thought, but I guess it needs to be deep to house the full gauge. The gauge is good quality, as all the fitting to fit the VROD, and a bunch of clear instructions. Looking forward to putting it on.

When I put in the SE2 cams I had to get gas every 75-80 miles. It was really annoying. I used to get gas @ 110-120 miles. Since the UE install I can go 150-170 miles. I often times cruise on a Saturday & rack up 200+ miles. So it works for me. I thought for sure you'd get one as well. I gotta believe that a 1370 BB is gonna drink a lot more gas than a Sportster. Ya know?

I was tossing the idea of a turbo, and still may be in the future an option but for now I agree the BB provided the big HP numbers with the original look, and more inline to my experience in builds.

And love that your from Adelaide mate, was raised in ingle farm myself before heading to Sydney and then over here in Seattle! Enjoy the summer, it has rained for the last 20 days straight here.

1370 Project - My Big Build - Part 7

Not a lot of movement over the Christmas break, but 2 excellent things happened.

I got my engine parts from Scott!

Main Bearings have been pinned


4.25" bore ready for sleeves


and head work complete (+1 Valves and Mike Jones Beehive springs)
.

Time to prep them up, and going to black out the engine and heads to match the new colour scheme of the bike.

AND, to add to that - I got an amazing Christmas present. A while back I had to pull out on Johnny Hotfoot's Boss Noss system due to some unexpected drama needing me to hold some bank notes tight. While that happily passed, I still had the Nos bug. Then Christmas day, I found this simply put on my workbench



A friggen Boss Noss stealth kit! My wonderful wife crawled through my chicken scratches of build notes and managed to even get the elusive Boss guys on the phone. Make sense now when she asked me about it one night and what the difference between the kits were, and if I had the chance to buy one again which one I would go for! So to complete my set, today I pulled the trigger on a mini progressive NOS controller to help control this new beast. Cant wait to wire that in and play!

1370 Project - My Big Build - Part 8

Taken some time off over Christmas and the New Year, and now I am back to it. During that time had a few other goodies arrived as well.

Got a water temp gauge integrated into the horn cover from Fabster


And also, a Dutchrod's DutchCustom Guage Led kit (http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthr...ighlight=dutch)


So I spent the first night back on the job by drilling some holes into a new set of drag bars. My originals while excellent to look at with no rise, were quite hell to ride with. The new ones have a 2 inch rise – still have the drag lines but will be more comfortable. Cables ran through, and hand controls bolted on and we are set to go.


Then, spent pretty much 30 mins adding in the Customer Led Kit into my Gauge. Really straightforward, and looking forward to see the results when I have the electrics hooked up.


So tonight, after washing all my main engine parts, I cracked onto the build. Wanted to get the input an output shaft into the lower crankcase tonight. Started with my nice clean lower crankcase


And fixed in my new actuator (quite different to the old one from the 2003) and updated drum


And then the gear selectors (with the new updated 4th/5th Shift fork, which has a lot more meat on it then the original)


and dropped in both shafts


tested to ensure the gears were engaging which all looked good. Not a bad start to the engine rebuild - and onto the weekend where I hopefully will be able to break the back of lower/upper crankcase build!
