OK, you asked for it Steve. This was an older post in 'Cool Stuff'
Here's a good one. I've got an old motor from a street bike with no home.
I've got an old 75 skidoo tnt 340 with a motor that won't run..... after doing the math... I think I'm going to try a hybrid this winter for fun.
the motor is out of an 86 Suzuki GSXR 750. It's air-cooled with tmx flatslide carbs. Still has the starter and alternator so I guess all I have to do is mount the motor and figure out a way to attach the PTO from the sprocket to the primary. A little weld here or there might just do the trick!
I figure 5th gear is about 1:1 on the motorbike so even if it idled about 2000 it shouldn't engage the secondary until you rev it. It redlines at 11,500. Should be an interesting 4-stroke venture. Will let you know as the season goes on. After all, it's just for fun. Might even make a great hill-climber!
