That is one beautiful sound.

I think I'm in love.

Wonder if they'll put it on the market as a stand-alone engine?

Also wonder about RPM range...

wow, that thing sounded wicked. Not sure it will be a great motorbike engine for a number of reasons but time will tell. It should certainly produce a nice fat low end torque compared to most bike engines. Surprised there is no counter rotating shaft. How are they planning on handling inline torque twist though the drive train? Nice to see peeps thinking out of the box.

this may be a dumb question but i am going to ask anyways.

is there a difference between the compounds in front and rear tires on bikes?

i am planing out my bike and will be going to a larger diammeter rear tire. been a bit difficult to find a 36 spoke 18 inch rear hoop. so i was thinking about using another front hoop from my bike (19 inch) instead (if it will fit the swing arm.) planning on a cafe style look. if i can do it this way the rear wheel would go from 2.75 wide to 2.15 wide. anyone see any issues for running around town?

Usually the rear tire is a harder compound than the front. Sliding the front in a corner can be scary whereas the sliding the back is fun! A 36 hole 18" rear is the most common back wheel for older Japanese bikes. Keep looking, you'll find tons of them when you find the right place. Also you'll have a hard time finding 19" rear tires. Plus 2.15 is a little narrow for the rear. 2.75 is just about right. What kind of bike is it?

it is a 95 suzuki savage. less than 10k miles on it. i have had it for 4 or 5 years but not ridden it. (i am a bit large for it in the original configuration... legs hit the handlebars when turning.) my ex-father in law gave it to me when he decided he should not ride anymore due to medical reasons. going with the cafe route will bring the seat up by about 4 inches and make it much more cofortable for me to ride. inspiration is being taken by my last post that shows one converted this way.

thanks for the imput.

If yours has spoke wheels like the other one you can relace your hub to a 18" wheel. If you are getting a used one try and pick one that has a similar hub width and diameter. That way when you order spokes (Buchanan spoke is a good source) the angles will be better in the wheels. If you ae going new they can drill it to the correct angle. With it being belt drive it a bit of a pain but you can still do it reasonable cheap. I would check to see if that engine is the same basic engine as the dr600 or the dr750. Maybe you could convert it to chain and use their back wheel. They should be around 18x2.50. Good luck, a healthy thumper in a light bike is a fun ride.

This isn't really a bobber or a chop. It's my 73 tx650 Yamaha that we use for track days. I got some old studded tires and took it out on the ice this year

Bad ass pics special-k! You've got bigger balls than me.

Laid the 550 down for the first time today. Got into some gravel at low speed, I'm ok and the bike is too. Clip-on put a dent in the right side of the tank to match the one on the left.

thanks MB & HP
I took about 175 lbs of sh!t off of it.
The stock exhaust weighed 'bout 50 lbs as well.
I built my own 4 into 1 out of a bunch of old EMPI exhaust systems
Wikipedia sez the '83 GL1100 makes 69 hp, which ain't much but the torque curve is flat like an electric motor.
Mostly I built it cuz I think it is COOL
Any GIXXER or Ninja is going to be waaaay faster & lighter but I love my NAKED GoldWing
