Looks great Fritzcoinc!!!!!

Agreed! I built a high compression big bore Harley with a lofty, loby cam and had an open megaphone exhaust.... I went with the Mikuni for adjustment purposes... That baby fricken' rocked for a Hardly D.... It got more requests from the chicas than all of my Hondas combined!

Also, if you haven't painted the frame yet, did you reinforce the point where the sub-frame and frame are welded together at the lower end; if not I would strongly suggest doing so. Honda put some really thin gussets in there, but on mine with mild off road duty showed signs of stress with the paint peeling/flaking off that indicate the frame sub-frame interface is moving under loads.

Anyway, love the build. MORE PICTURES, MORE BIKE PORN!!!!

Hey Fritzco,

Thanks for the link!..... As of last night we decided to coat the piston, Nikasil the cylinder and go with treatments and coatings similar, but with a few "Mad Scientist" twists to the mix, ie: cryogenics, and other stuff from:http://www.evansperformance.com/home2.html

The cost is not bad, and a little time/effort/expense now will add some life, and that is what I am after

More fun added to the mix!!!

CW can bust out some pics anytime he feels the need!!!! I am drooling here!!!

I am trying to figure out a break in ride for the new girl... Maybe N. Georgia with some DOGS, Colorado if it takes that long, suggestions???

No hijack intended. Just a few ideas.
Here's my most recent " coating " project. Carb on my Husky 400 XCE:

Before



After


Of all the things I have tried the PTFE coatings on, these are the only items I can strongly recomend. Axles. With the coating you can damm near throw the axle in the hole like a dart. All the other stuff ( swing arm sleeves, sprockets, misc. hardwear) have not been in service long enough to tell if it was a good idea. I can tell ya this, these items look great and dont rust:
Before

After


I wooped rust ass here with coatings:


Why go to all that trouble? Here's where I love to ride!

Thats good old Bolivar. It is an OffRoad heaven since huricane Ike. Bikes, Jeeps, the fishing is still good though.
Remember, as teens, we both rode the same place back behind Sagemont, the Honda Hills!

Update

A few adjustments to report. The camshaft will be a web 55-771 Link:http://www.webcamshafts.com/index_bl...le_search.html and should fit the bill quite nicely.

The Jet Hot Ceramic coating will be swapped to a similar looking finish, but won't retain the heat within the frame. Here is the stuff:http://www.powderbuythepound.com/PAT...TE_CHROME.html

The head is off to Freddy at XR's Only for big fins.... Every XRL I have ever had was fitted with Freddy's big fins... I can't not do it. I am an addict :-)

The piston is cam ground, which means that it is slightly oblong and gets round once hot.... CW coated the piston (he made it...) and then sent the cylinder and piston off to get a Nikasil coating in the cylinder that should last a long, long time! There will be a .0025 clearance for less piston rock and better ring seal. Unfortunately there is a wait of up to 3 weeks to get the piston and cylinder back, but will be more than worth the wait.

Apparently Evans Performance Products has been hit with the economy and has ventured into other avenues and not sure if the internal coatings will happen. CW is polishing up the gears, removing casting flash, opening up oil ports, etc. and will make sure the insides are way happy, though.

The RSW triple trees were shipped last week but have not made it yet.... They need a mock up prior to coating the frame, so no mods need to be done after paint is complete.

We are just awaiting the arrival of parts and coatings to get completed and then the build can continue....

Keep a running list of the mods., many will want it I'm sure. After seeing all this it looks like I'm leaning more towards the XRL than the 530exc due to reliability questions and KTM Loosing dealers. I'm not sure if I should count on the one near me to be around much longer after reading the smack on the web about whats been happening to them all but I would surly miss the weight savings of the EXC. If I get the XR I'll probably get a XR600 kicker to put in it along with a few other do-dads. Sounds like your building the ultimate XR 1st rate. Its too bad BBR never made an after market frame for this engine. It would have cut the weight by at least 20- 30 lbs and given us all more of what we keep hoping Honda will deliver ........................one day

Watching and waiting for the finished product.

I looked into a custom frame, but an additional 2k + put the final price a little above what I want to spend, especially to shave only 10-15 lbs... If I could have dropped 30 or more, I wold have justified it. In the end, I will have what I want without being TOO ridiculous. Of course that is subjective, as some may think I am already there...

I'll keep posting away so that the modifications can be seen. CW is on top of his game for sure. If anyone else is looking for some mod's, he can sure handle the task!
