It has minimal effect. The nitrogen pressure is only there to prevent cavitation in the shock fluid when it is being pushed through the valve stack. You would never feel the difference between 140 and 160. It would only make a small difference in the effectiveness of the shock under severe punishing conditions. 160 psi would stop cavitation a little better.

So when is production gonna start on it? With that in there would be no stopping a well ridden DR 650/900 on the tracks and trails( I mean jeez all it would have to do is fire once and the earth would spin under you ). I am fairly certain there would be interest in this kit along with the billet 3rd gear and carb. right next to the new shock /forks and seat. well I guess a new larger tank would be a wise move too. With a decent can I imagine it sounds awesome, MASSIVE displacement and single cylinder you could hear that thing fire as it lugs up a hill then crack gets on the powerband PLEASE post a video of that!!!

I agree that a smaller engine doing the same work will be pushing harder to make the same effect as a larger displacement engine. A friend has a DR 200 and he has to have it singing to get to the top of the same hills I do, and he is a lot lighter then I am . I am in the process of trying to get my DR ready for a RTW trip while it would be nice to have it here in North America It would prove to be problematic if I had issues with it in some backwater country.

Smilin Jack almost rode down to PC for a visit and a speedo cable today... and missed the chance to see DR-zilla.

Instead a friend stopped by in his cage for my parts run. Better luck next time.

cush rubbers

Hey everyone hope you all had a good crimbo!

Quick question about cush drives.... I've got a new rear wheel and will be transferring the bits from the old wheels, I've got new cush rubbers and my question is should these be lubricated at all? I'm thinking they go in dry as any grease will just attract dirt but the only time I've had it apart before for a tire change they seemed to have some sort of graphite grease on them.

Looking forward to having a proper catch up on the thread.

I give them a squirt of silicone lube spray to make it easier to get it all together. Silicone is benign, and maybe conditions the rubbers a bit, maybe, whatever that means.

There's no reason to think it will need any more cooling than the current 790. It will gain a lot of internal cylinder area to shed heat. But really, a bigger motor doesn't just automatically make more heat. It depends on how hard you run it. With the longer stroke and more torque it should have an easy time of of it. In equal conditions a smaller lower powered motor has to be run harder to give the same performance as a larger more powerful motor.
You better put a couple rimlocks in the rear of that one!

Love the welded crank-pin. Hope the clutch can handle it.

What do you have to do to allow for the extra stroke, so it doesn't hit the head?

when at top-dead-center, the top of the piston is in the same location as stock, it's yust that the crank journal is closer to the top of the piston, and the rod is shorter; so when the piston is at bottom dead center, it is further away from the top of the cylinder, thus increasing displacement...

Makes sense.

Does stroking the engine increase the amount of compression? It seems to me that it will. If so, would it still run on normal gasoline?

Would the stroker kit be available as a standalone kit without the big bore? It seems to me that wouldn't be a problem. It might have a tougher time at idle?

Is there an advantage of doing one vs the other assuming very similar final displacement?

I should probably be asking Jeff, but anyone with engine knowledge should be able to help I think.

According to physics, more power has a direct correlation to more heat , but as you said, the larger area should help offset that. I know given my propensity to pin the throttle on pretty much everything I ride, I'd be running it hard.

All things being equal, yes, a longer stroke will increase compression. I will modify the dish in the top of the piston to compensate.

This will never be a kit. In any case it would not work with the stock piston because the stocker is too long below the wrist pin. With the stock piston you could only increase the stroke a couple of millimeters before the bottom of the piston hits the crankshaft. The 790 piston is a much more modern design and has the necessary clearance under the piston.

As far as what is an advantage - It totally depends on what the goals are for the end result. Longer stroke makes more torque at the expense of rpms and vibration and depending on the motor can be more difficult or expensive than just a bigger bore.

Sure, plenty of interest until we start talking about the cost. A bare minimal 900 kit - custom built crank & rod, modified 790 kit, gaskets, etc would run at least $3000. Add a cam, 3rd gear and whatever will be necessary to keep the clutch hooked up and it would easily go $4k-$5k or more.

Nope. Never going to be a kit but if someone else besides me is crazy enough to want to do this I'll be happy to help point them in the right direction.

Reminds me of the 750cc 2 stroke Maico single that Rick Sieman and DirtBike magazine built back in the last century
