New project in Norway

Postby aschjem » Wed May 23, 2012 10:17 pm

Hi all

Just started my second Barracuda built up in Norway. I was rather happy with the result of my last built but found it more interesting to build than drive so I have to do another. Also learn a lot from the first so now I know what to do different and improve.

Engine is going to be a Gen 2 Hayabusa and I am just waiting for the right one to come up for sale.
I know this engine fits in a standard engine bay but is it an advantage to extend frame anyway?

Here is some pictures from last week’s progress:

Bender works perfect and is absolutely worth the money. Did the last one with a 12T hydraulic bender, good enough but this one add tensile to the outer side of the bend.
Struggled a few hours with the JD2 bender to find the right place to start a new bend. For one reason start of the bend moves about 15mm from edge of the die so I have to calculate for this.

Looks neat - nice work.
I beleive the advantage of extending the engine bay is a bit more room for the engine. I put a gen 1 busa in mine and it fit very snuggly, but an extra 10cm would make it easier to fit stuff in. Fingers crossed i never have to remove the exaust - i'll near have to take apart the engine!
also making the buggy longer keeps it more stable, or so i've read.

Thanks, used some time making templates for the base frame to ensure high accuracy. Also, the laser helps a lot.

Fitted a Yamaha FZR 1000 in my first Barracuda with standard frame. Exhaust system is very tight, so I have to tilt the engine if I want to remove it. And it's a high temperature around oil filter and front of engine.

Is it enough with 75 mm or should i go for 100mm?

You are right Tony, but I think the sport is a littleforeign in Norway. Could be the lack of sand dunes and this cool bush-roads you have down there.
But I do my best to promote Edge buggys in northern countries :)

Thank you for the link, very useful.

There is a great manual on jd2 homepage: http://www.jd2.com/t-printablemanuals.aspx
Model 3 bender user guide have a method with template bending and one with math formulas.

Helps a lot with some experience too.

How awesome would a Barra with studded ice tyres look in a powerslide on a snow packed road. Just like the Rally of Sweden.

2011 Hayabusa engine kit is coming my way from the United States. Expensive thing but hope this one will do the job..

Seller says 2000 miles on the street with normal use.. Belive it or not, but it can't be to bad.

Payed 4600 usd for engine kit and another 300 for dash and fuel pump.. Looking good on pictures so hope I get what I pay for.

KNV motorsports on eBay. They have also a nice 2006 mod out now.

Picked up my engine from the freight company last week, all looking good!

Does it exist a wiring diagram for buggys to the gen II Busa? Tried the link in electrical forum but it does not work. Please send me an e-mail: h_aschjem@hotmail.com

Anything special with the Californian models? Read something in manual about fuel system.

Thanks

Hello

Long time since last post. Still working on the frame, the main structure is close to complete. Need to add some more bars before I can start to fully weld everything. Hope to finish that work during summer. Have done some lathe turning, spacers and different details, made pedal boxes.

I have a few question: I try to figure out some of the electrics for the engine. I got the original wiring with most of the sensors attached and last weekend I try to connect everything just to check if it is possible to fire up this thing.

What are the main criteria's to have it running, I made jumpers on clutch position switch and side stand switch, left and right handlebar switches should be in correct position. Got the original ignition switch w/key. Tip over sensor is ok.

I was able to run the starter motor but my battery died. Is it possible to start it or do I need all sensors and stuff connected properly? The FI lamp is lid in dashboard, but that was expected.

Is cylinder nr. #1 at the flywheel side?

I'm not sure about the Busa, but my Honda engine required all sensors to be connected, and wouldn't start without the tacho sender, the gerbox sender and those sorts of things. MAP, MAT, oil and fuel sensors didn't need to be connected though. The dashboard flashed with an error code whenever anything was disconnected.
It would have been extremely dangerous... except for the fact he was drinking at the same time.

Okay. I am going to read some more in the manual and try to figure out. Also check if there are some sensors missing.

What size of battery is suitable for this motor?

Crank position sensor was not connected. Too good to be true, engine start at first attempt. Finaly, I can have a good sleep at night.

Some pictures from the process...
