CCM's Next Wheelstander Build

Postby 23t » Thu Apr 21, 2011 7:21 am

Really don't know why I'm building this. I guess it's the gearhead in me and I do love a challenge and love putting my idea's together, so what the heck, why not.

This is intended to be the next CCM wheelstander. Powered supplied by a water cooled GSXR 750cc Suzuki. So far I have the swingarm built and the rearend is connected to the engine. Next will be trying to build a setup for the clutch cable, mount for the radiator and then the dreaded wiring.
Since my right hand will be steering and I like to have my left hand on the steering wheel, I come up with my own electric shift setup activated by a rocker switch on the steering wheel for up and down shifting. I used 2-50# shaved door handle solenoids mounted on the shift rod on the trans. Tested on the bike before I pulled the engine and it worked. Hopefully it will work on the cart. Will see! I know I can't hardly wait drive it!!
Speed? Installed a 17 tooth sprocket on the engine and a 11 tooth on the rearend input shaft. I think with the stock cart rear gearing of 13:1, red line on the engine at 13500rpm and with 20" tires, speed will be around 50mph. Looking for more of a WOW factor and noise for shows, not speed.

I've been depress this year. Alot of nothing going on, gas prices keep going up and I will be hitting that magical B-day number this summer, The big 50! :shock: But I got to thinking, you know, 50's not so bad!! After all the crazy stuff I do and I make it to 50, that is cause enough for a celabration!!
Have a great day my friends!! :D

I agree, 50 is not bad at all. I'm rather enjoying my 50's. That should be bad to the bone Daryl. Though, Jordan thought you were going to put up a picture of our cart..lol. He swears it will be on 2 wheels before the season is over. Just hope he's talking about the rear two...lol
