I am wanting to buy 2 rpm gearboxes from YOSHI. I just wanted to know if anyone has had ever bought anything from him. He sounds like a super nice upfront guy. But im 1000 miles away from him and just dont want to get screwed.

Yoshi has been around a long time. I have never bought anything from him, but I am confident he is one to trust.

Yoshi seems to be a stand up businessman and you should not have to worry buying from him. But why not skip the middleman and buy the gearbox directly from Dan @ RPM?

A little cheaper and I'll include 7 custom mounting brackets.....[smilie=ninja.gif]

Nothing, just trying some of these out. I like the couple extra inches of travel, live axle, and abut 30 pounds weight difference....

Yoshi,
may be an optical in that picture,,,,, but does the frame clear where the CV will be mounting to the flange?

Seems like a silly question, I know you pay attention to detail

Im guessin that the RPM doesnt sit in that position normally.:D

yes and no, lol. It is an optical, and actually does clear in the pic and has about an inch of adjustment, but it was suppose to be able to rotate farther forward before it hit the tube. I effed up a few of my numbers on the plasma cut plates and it's mounted back a little farther than it's suppose to. Since i'm trying to get this thing mocked up, i'm gonna keep the plates the way they are, and replace the 2 upper tubes with a small bend in them since they're just tacked anyway......

I run ours angled back for a longer chain.
Looks like you will be able to run a decent length chain in that position,,,help with the chain heat.

That's why I did it, just under 20" from center to center for the sprockets.....

How much for an RPM with 930 CV flange and 8:1 Ratio

Looks good will you be running a busa with the RPM and are they rated for that? How large of a sprocket will you be able to run with the reduction they offer and have you run one before?
Thanks Bob

The unit has been holding up to turbo busa rails..

I'll be running a couple 17 tooth sprockets, or maybe a little bigger on the front since I order them with a 5.4:1 ratio....

Thats nice having the small sprocket what about chain heat?

The chain heat comes from the short distances between sprockets. I have the unit laid way back to get a much longer chain than normal, and although 17 seems small, it's actually the biggest sprocket you can fit on the busa without modifying the motor cover a little bit. I've ran as small as 12 tooth on the busa before and was fine..

Worth mentioning about the RPM is that when running a large engine like the 'Busa or a ZX Dan Roberto recommends the 'Busa splined input shaft rather tan keyed shaft on the RPM.

Yoshi, input shaft style and are both units geared the same?

That's correct, all the units I get have the busa splines for the shaft, and he's working on the bigger 08 busa splines for me as well, then they will all be that size...

Are the Busa splines different than the GSXR 1000 splines?

The GSXR 600-1000 drive sprockets are the same & that is what we are running on the RPM gear box.
You can get up to an 18 tooth sprocket.

Gene

My guess is that the splines are the same although I don't know for certain. I do know that the CBR 1000 countershaft sprocket fit onto the 'Busa splined shaft on the RPM.

I bought a turnkey car. He is great to work with. I know your concerns. I live in Seattle and did every transaction by phone and email. Yoshi is solid and stands behind everything he puts his hands on!!

Hey NWD - when are we going to see that car at the dunes?

Workrd closely with the original owner to repair my SSC when he was working out of his shop in Black Lake Olypia. Both he and I learned why SSC had its limits. Almost got an ET but he was two builds behind. So I went with Yoshi. I will get to Oregon dunes this year, I dont like rain,salt and crowds though?

.... I dont like rain,salt and crowds though? ....

That's funny!

So you're in for hangin' with th ET's (and not ET's) whenever we go to the sand - and that will be soon.

The weekend of May 22 is my target for Coos Bay or Winchester Bay.
