rather than stuff up the R65 why don't ya just swap for mine that is already in parts ready for modification. Some of the body parts are already heavily modified for weight reduction.

It's goona be fricking slow you realise that? Not to be a wet blanket but there's a frickload of weight for 800 to pull around let alone a lil 500 - Unless you get a file out you'll be pushing it to get a decent load of revs out of it.
Sorry for being a party pooper.

No R65's are being harmed in this exercise.
I dunno....I like a challenge.

I still say forced induction. Surely there’s plenty of meat around those little bores!

They banned them after the 1939 TT
Its really as simple as I'd like a 350/500 Moto Morini....350/450 Ducati, or sorted 500cc Triumph.....not even worth thinking about a 500 Norton single.....
....but they are so expensive....I can put a BMW 500 on the track for a lot less. Doesn't have to be fast just fun.
Now who's got a toaster tank, and ducati ss seat they don't want...

A friend of mine did up a Moto morini 31/2 about 10 years ago. They spent a lot of time & money on it but boy it looks cool.

It must be toaster tank day. A member of the Facebook airhead group I belong to picked one up off Ebay today as well; Oz $370,00 and in quite good nick too.

Spent a frustrating day with my Ignitech ignition. The program would go into " not responding " mode and had to be restarted each time I did a curve change.
So far its no better than the Boyer for starting and idling.
I got as far as it running and strobing to the Z at 3000, but still having to use full choke to start it.
Looks to need a lot of advance initially, but I don't want to go over 30 at 3000.

Still on the up side, took the 450 cylinders/pistons ( 470 actually) over to my engineer and he came up with a game plan involving bugger all work.
Now looking for a set of 32 mm Dells......and some R65 headers......

Excuse my ignorance but what's wrong with the stock setup? have you got flash Cams & stuff that makes you need the electronic stuff or is it just something you do when you have a racer - go all hi tech etc?

Timing for dummies time - if you are keeping your bike in high revs all the time do you have to advance the timing more than the stock would do?

I spent a few hours removing the valves off Berlinas heads & getting them & the barrles ready for media blasting. Also made up a tool for the flywheel removal - the one in the clymer wasn't within cooee with the measurements needed.

I love this shit!!!!

I like my bike to idle..... currently it idles at nearly 2000 rpm and needs full choke to start...even when warm.
The stock system was points....but the motor came without....so a Boyer went in....with more advance I could get it to idle...but it moved the range past 30 degrees....which by all accounts is bad.
The boyer due to its 60's tech also just keeps on advancing...30....31....32.....ok for road use.
...and if you battery voltage drops it retards.....lots of hours researching this crap.
Then Ta Da....Ignitech.....programmable....and crank fired...not your sloppy off the cam chain drive...
But yes you are correct that the stock one would do.......
but the new unit when I get it sorted has an ajustable rev limiter.....and if I could be arsed clutch cut out so you don't open an close the throttle on gear shifts......
oh its got a 336 copy cam.
tomorrow I buy 5kohm caps....as the electroniks no like interference....
