man, those motor mounts look pretty clean. I really like how that rear one is made up. and is that front lower mount rubberized aswell? it all looks good.hilpp99 said:CR500 in its new home. I just finished all the mounts today. Does anyone have a carb they would be willing to part with? I am looking for one so let me know if you have one you can sell.
Are you going to the E2S outing in Aug with it? I also have a TRX 500 that I will have there.RZBansheeMan said:Hey, how's it going everybody ? My name is Mike, I'm new to this forum but have been reading quite a bit on here.
I am also in the process of building a TRX 500r for a friend of mine but I am taking a little different approach than many that I have seen. I have been taking pics along the way to document the installation. I have read on other forums that it's a bad idea to build these hybrids because of the non-counterbalanced engine vibrating like crazy.
Well first off the frame needs signifcant amount of extra bracing and gusseting, I also have modified the frame under the engine area so that I have it with a real low center of gravity, I will also be rubber mounting my engine with true isolated rubber mounts. After I finish up making the mounts and strapping the engine in, I am going to be tackling the pipe, which will consist of a LRD big bore pipe. The reason for this is because it doesn't have to be hacked into several pieces or twisted several times to be made to fit, and the stinger diameter will be sufficient for this size engine. It will need the CR 500 sized exhaust flange and a small portion of the head pipe to be modified but will fit all the stock mounting brackets. It also has the adjustable expansion chamber to dial it in to the mighty 500 power plant. Depending on vibration factors after it is up and running, the crank might go to Fallicon to get dynamically balanced to ensure that this will truly be a fun rideable machine.
This quad is not going to be a Drag specific quad but an all around rider friendly quad when finished specifically for Silver Lake.
I will keep everybody posted if there's any interest and I would also be willing to elaborate and share pics of all the details throughout.
