the 470 project update

Thought I'd keep you SM junkies posted. I'm still waiting for a bunch of parts but it's slowly turning into a pretty bike.
Here's how it sits at the moment:

see, that's the kind of shit we do to make our DRZ's lighter than a husky 610
no subframe, pipe, airbox, etc


so you put in the 94mm piston to go with the +5 crank.
did you end up doing any head work?

I still in.

BTW Bill you can take off everything but the motor and I still think it will be heavier than my Husky. Not that I can really do anything with the power to weight.

Luck is on my side once again. A month after being shipped from Jersey, the subframe landed on my front steps today.
Put it all on and the bike is heavy as fu*k again

I'm putting in new Ferrea ss valves and E springs. The intakes are being coated at Ron Hamp's magic shop as we speak.

This should be good for the upcoming season. Next year, I might do oversize valves, RHC 187 cams, 41mm FCR-MX and porting, to squeeze 60hp out of it.
Or I'll sell it all and get a real bike

Shiny graphics and nice parts still won't make me faster than Bill

The subframe finally showed up in mail yesterday so I was able to put the tail back together. The fender is a RM125.
I mounted up a shortened TRS can to get a rough idea how it will look. The rest of the exhaust will be a fat pipe from MRD.
The battery is still in place. I'll have to use it until the kicker motor is completed.
It's starting to take shape..

The yellow plastic one in the background was in one of the two packages that showed up last night, about a month after being shipped.

I wanted to use a plastic tank since it's 2 pounds lighter but it's color is way off.
I got the metal yellow tank with a set of yellow plastic as a trade from my buddy.

I moved on a little again.
The kicker bottom end is finally in place. I gave it a black powdercoated stator cover. It complements the carbon clutch cover on the other side nicely.
I'm halfway done mounting up a KLX headlight. Still need to fabricate top mounts.
I also started working on the exhaust. I need to re-weld the bolt-on part of the muffler to fit onto the midpipe. I'm thinking about cutting off a piece of the subframe tab so the muffler mounts where the fender is originally supposed to be mounted. That way, the pipe would point a little bit more upwards.
The head, cams and piston are on the way to Denver for a little massage.

Here's a few pics:

actually when that motor is finished, it will probably put out similar power to a 510

a stroked and bored drz can be built to 60 hp and still maintain a semblance of reliability

It will have pretty mild cams and "only" 39mm FCR so I'm expecting just a little over 50hp.

I just hope it will run. Judging from the amount of sand on the top of the old piston, the motor was probably run in pretty rough conditions.
What's the best way to completely clean a motor?

Soak over night air blast and then soak over night again.

When it's apart before soaking debure any casting iregularities with a file .You want those casting bugers out of there.

also debure the bearing recess openings .

Run a tap in the holes of any parts that may have been sand blasted out of house.

Then soak one more time.

The first oil change with petrolium oil ,change after first ride.

Good luck

5gal. kerosin in a plastic tub will work.Don't stir the kerosin the shit will sit on the bottom.

You can scoop it out the next day and soak the parts again

The bottom end is not apart though.
Is there a way of cleaning it without splitting the cases?
