ill have to give them a call. it would be nice to be able to switch sprockets by just removin a couple bolts. instead of cutting one off.

made a little progress today. got some of the motor mounts made.


rear upper motor mount


motor mount to the tranny




ran into a problem. the passenger side cage mount lands right on top of the rear cylinder head.

Do you have any ideas for what you're going to do for the clutch pedal/lever or the shifter? I have a couple ideas floating around, but nothing solid yet

i have a couple ideas. my first thought was shifter in the center behind the stock lever with clutch lever attached but its my girls and mines rzr not just mine, and i think she would have a hard time adapting to the clutch/shifter lever setup. so im thinking a setup like a car, clutch next to the brake and slap shifter setup behind the stock lever. not sure if i wanna use cables to the shifter or some kind of lever setup.

hopefully that made sense. everything sounds better in my head lol

no I totally understand. Those were the ideas floating in my head too, use a morse cable for the shifter and probably put a pedal down by your feet. I don't think I would use the PRNHL shifter much, so it may be relocated and just left in high most of the time. Here's a pic of mine for motivation

hey ryan. what are you expecting for top speed? and what gearing are you plannin on runnin?

im a trail guy but we do run down an air strip here locally that i know i could hit some pretty high speeds if i was geared right.

Sportbike engine/trans's have a primary reduction off the crankshaft of around 2:1, and 10-15k RPM redline is irrelevant, the countershaft is spinning roughly the same speed of the stock RZR engine. IDK if you have done the math, 1:1 from my countershaft to the trans input shaft would put 6th gear at about 40 mph, we are going to push the issue and see if I can get 85 with a billet jackshaft that my buddy is working on...basically 2 chains, and 4 sprockets, overdriving a total of around 2.125:1 (85 mph). There's another guy that did this but didn't do a jackshaft, I believe he was 18:11 and was about stock top speed. I am really worrying about overheating the chain, but I will see if I can just buy the best of the best chain/sprockets and if they last a season, that would be awesome. If not, we will have to encapsulate the setup and do an oil bath or do an oil squirter onto the chain.
