I can't find his video, but it certainly shows how well a 950 burns.

Hey CJ!

I've been hearing about this from our friend Jason Black - glad to have found this thread. It's some really impressive work.

I was going to buy a Christini for the Rally Moto series. Since I couldn't beat the Aprilia on hp I figured the way to do it was to get more to the ground. My tests with the bike were amazing. 2wd dirt bikes are the future for absolute sure - it's just amazing how they work. Sadly I retired racing before I could try the bike in competition.

But, while I was riding the 450, I couldn't help but think of how perfect it would be on the 950 which probably has the worst traction problem of any bike I know. I'll be watching this one for sure!

CJ, where would you estimate the man hours put into this project and having performed it once how would you estimate the man hours for a second bike?

Great job, thanks for the thread!

Thanks for following along Gregor.

I hope to meet up w/ Jason in Moab again in March or April. Maybe you can ride out w/ him.

An AWD Aprilia would be crazy too.

Great job, thanks for the thread!

I've been asked this a few times now and I don't have a good answer. I didn't record any work time as it was so sporadic. I've also been told every time you stop working on a project, add 15 minutes to your project time to get your bearings again. I believe it! Many days I would only be able to get an hour or 2 of hands on work test fitting stuff. My weekends were spent trying to get 10-12 hr days in.

The time to complete this had work time split into a few categories.

Research/Thinking:
Design/CAD:
Fabrication:
Testing:

Let just say it's alot.

Before I even had parts in hand I studied the manuals offered to me by Steve. These allowed me to start looking at parts and see how they might fit in the puzzle or if I'd need to look elsewhere. My mind was always working on problems and potential "fixes". Many nights I'd toss and turn in bed for hours trying to think through a problem I was having, only to get up at 1am, because sleep wasn't going to happen. I'd go down in the shop and start sketching up my thoughts before they were gone. At the time I was working at my Aerospace job 3:00pm-11:30pm, come home, try to get some sleep, then try and work on it more from 10am-2pm. Some nights not getting to bed until 6am.

So, even though all my time was not "Fabrication" Time, there is still alot of "Thinking" time required to complete the project.

YES, I have an illness.....but I'm not sure what to name it.

I had a few weeks off from time to time, but my mind was always thinking about the project and had a sketch book with me to jot the ideas down. Toward the end I spent almost 2 months, full time, working to complete this in time.

If I had to guess how much time, I'd say I could average 4hrs a day of work over a 1yr and half..... Yikes. This is the first time I've ever thought this out.....

547 days * 4 hrs/day = 2,735 hrs.....

And I'm still not done....

Now I see why my head hurt so much.


SECOND BIKE:

This summer my plans are to keep testing/traveling and racing the AWD 950.
I want to get alot of miles on this setup before I work on a Second bike.

Some of my current design ideas will need to be cleaned up, while applying NEW ideas, making the second bike even better.

I hope to be able to build another KTM ADV bike, and a Super Enduro in the future. (2011-2012) I forsee alot more late nights......
