    Great engine/trans package! Maintenance free and bullet proof!

    Do you mind if I ask what clutches your using? I like the looks of the driven.

    Cant wait to see how this performs.

    Compliments again on the very well thought out dual A-arm setup around the trans.

    I've always wondered if a guy could take a motocross bike set of forks and make a strut assembly (much stiffer springs obviously in the fork tubes). Not having to place that upper control arm you could squeeze everything even tighter. I'm sure there would be a few specialty pieces on each end to catch the fork tube - but starting with some nice aluminum Polaris struts would provide axle parts that all slip together AND brakes!

    Just a thought!

    Thanks Guys

    Dain,
    not sure on that,never looked at the strut design up close
    but if Polaris is doing it, seems like it should work
    does that work like a single lower a arm with the bearings / hub built into the lower arm?
    if so the camber change is real big and only the inner joint needs to pivot

    Poordad,
    Hoping to be able to produce these full turnkey for 13K,,, least thats the goal
    after testing we will offer them frame, kits, rolling chassis,,, all the parts will be available to build as you go

    Got to take her our for a test drive today :-)
    Tested good, custom exhaust with super trapp style disc muffler sounds great
    V twin is deep and throaty but not too loud.
    Motor sounds bigger than it is,,, nice rumble
    Low end power is nice, spins the tires and can slide it sideways in the corners
    on the .19 mile sandy dirt track
    hit top speed of 36mph on the track , but feels faster and handles good
    scrub off speed in the corners , so it should top out 40-45 in a straight away where ,, how intended
    power is is fun and will be good for trails, general fun and for sure an awesome rental unit
    going to scale out for final weight tomorrow
    should be 650lbs or less I expect

    Glad to see it is running well!

    The strut in the rear would just connect to the lower control arm with a ball joint - giving it all degrees of freedom. A toe link would be the only other piece needed if using a polaris style strut unit - but if a person were to build their own, a king pin on the lower control arm would eliminate the yaw movement. I'll have to make a sketch

    Looks clean, should work out good for a rental.
    Do you know what the gear ratio's are on that CVT ? I tried to look it up just for comparison from the comet 780 series but couldn't find anything spacific

    I am curious about this concept, look forward to the sketch.
