Joey's exhaust
« on: January 29, 2007, 08:11:17 pm »



Made a new exhaust for my sled, went out to test it out over the past weekend and I totally toasted my belt, you can hear it slipping like crazy. Had fun anyway terrorizing my wife while she taped it.

Yeah, I ticked her off when I did a drive by!....Two 1" Pipes from the V twin into a small collector to one 1-7/8" pipe,  about 20" long. I originally had it a bit too short, by adding a few more inches, it gave it bit more bottom end grunt.....kept an eye on the plugs too, seems to burn a little better.

Thanks Paul, That is a baseball field across the street from me at an elementary school. This particular field is around back of the school, so I sneak over and ride for a few minutes and dissapear!...
......The engine has had quite a bit of help. It is an older Kawasaki FH601V 19HP. Jayson Mikula built it back in 2002.
Heavy duty valve springs, a nasty cam, head work....
He is currently working on a new engine for me as we speak, He has aluminum flywheels available for them too....
I am really happy with this Kawasaki, they are not as common as Briggs and Tecumseh, but well worth checking into.
Jayson builds them very reasonably priced too.....

........please keep in mind that in this clip, my belt is toasted........

Very impressive!!!

Have you ever run a Briggs or Indian? Just wondering how the Kawi's dependiility, powerband and life are compaired to them.

Tom, great question. I goofed around with a stock briggs v-twin and there was no comparison. The Kaw ate for lunch... BUT, That was an unfair analysis too, being the briggs was stock. Very soon, I hope to get together with a few local guys so we can compare engines.....I hope trade sleds for a few laps....that should be real fun and a great learning experience.  As far as dependability, this engine has had a hard life and still kicks booty. I run it close to 6800 RPM and have not lost anything (yet).....I still have a big nasty 20lb flywheel in it, The new engine will have a well needed, aluminum flywheel. I have always had good luck with Kawasaki & Honda, The drawback is there are less accessories than Briggs/Tecumseh. They really take a lot of abuse and have excellent longevity. I am building a CP right now and will probably drop a 20hp OHV Honda in. .....Will be interesting to have a "Shootout"...looking forward to it. I would like to check out an Indian too.  I hear good things.....

Wow I just came across this and that is one nice sounding mower. Ive seen you race on TV many of times and you can never really get the full effect of how fast you guys are going or how your mowers sounds because your all in one great big pack. But this little video definitely put things into perspective you were givin er.

.....Well, I wish that were the case,(and thank you for the kind words) but, I have not participated in a National Race yet...(it will be a few this year)....still considered a "Rookie" in this sport (however, I have 30 years of hardcore competitive racing under my belt- BMX, Motocross, ATV, Dirt Track..and some Aircraft Racing) . I started racing mid year in 06 here in my local chapter and did rather well..... I have done quite a bit of local media , Public TV and a Radio stuff to promote this sport. My part time business is heavily involved with media......needless to say, Every chance I get, I start promoting Lawn Mower Racing.......with a huge emphisis on the safety precautions we take.....

Thanks Allen!....Manny's a great guy with a wealth of knowledge, and he will give you the shirt off his back. I actually learned most stuff here on Heymow, and especially- Super George............ George Herrin's  build was a "God send"....the pictures answered a million questions.....don't have anyone local to talk dirt with. So, there was a lot of trial and error. The local fellow chapter guys here are of tremendous help, but for the most part, they are on the northern side of the state, so I don't get that much of a chance to catch up with them as much as I would Like to. I will be at Clements MD July 13,14 for sure(local to me).....thinking about about Sparta...and Delaware Ohio. ..............

I work with a bunch of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers...you can see their effect on my new CP Build.....I think that frame could probably take the punishment of a V-8 engine.

ahhhh...new engine just arrived!....will spend the weekend  getting it installed.......
...as well as the wife's IMOW........somewhere I'll find the time to sleep.

YES!!!...but, the IMOW is actually for the wife....I made a prepared frame with the idea of starting her in IMOW....I originally was building a CP....but with the new rules.....I can swap the engine out to race another class while using the same chassis.........She has shown quite a bit of interest, even after I let her ride my BP.( I thought it would scare the  :censored: out of her.......but NO!!!!).......
Anyway, we pick up the frame from Jackie Andrews'(SP#33) Body shop the 25th
..Hope to have that running soon after......(this is the CP build I have posted here)

 Anyway, I hope them both running soon...did the BP engine swap last night/today....had to adjust the timing, so, I needed to pull the flywheel to reset it. The darn flywheel puller damaged the crank threads that holds the flywheel on....been searching the state for a metric tap M12 x 1.25. None to be found......as I sit here with my head in my hands.......I need some beer....
.....Pretty sure we are going to do Sparta.....
