Found out two things I can do that wont kill me (I hope) will pull the battery out just incase.

I am going to cit the two wires going to the kick stand and splice them together. and the ignition diode needs to be flipped. This will bypass the clutch safety and kickstand safety which is two reasons the bike might be dieing while I am riding. Another would be to check the fuel air hose. If its pinched could backfire and knock the boot off the motor (already had the boot pop off)

Im found some information and I think the rear is a 7/8th axle?

IF the nut is 7/8th that means the axle is a 7/8th right?

(honestly speaking to no one in particular I just hate forgetting information.)

Axle Sliders Brings a question. I see (Page 2) several people are putting axle sliders and a long screw through where the axles are, does this mean the axle is removed and swapped for a regular bolt type rod?

I am a bit confused on this. (No I will not be doing this until I get more information, no worries) but axle sliders might help next time I lay it down or a buddy does (I havnt laid down the blast yet and my buddy and cousins have 1 a peice already)...(And possibly red on a weekend :P )

I came up with another idea, and yes this is mostly talking to myself now but still thinking and planning on playing with this idea (because this I can actually do in a smaller scale to try.

I have some PVC pipe laying around and already know what to do with the front because its free without anything blocking it. This is for the bottom front at least and want to see how it works. I am planning on this.

When I removed the exhaust I saw 2 places to mount the frame at the bottom on the motor directly to the motor. Going to measure it tonight (no cash, no plans) to see how big the base is and build this accordinly. The front has a mount that connects to the frame as well (what is marked in blue squares, will verify and take pictures when I get a chance to post up. It will end up being a gooseneck design I guess. Figure it would bolt directly to the bottom 3 points to the frame since theres no way it connects anywhere on top.

Disclaimer: (Just cause I know someones going to ask) NO I will not be building it out of pvc pipe/or anything I can find basically ro actually run just to see if it would work. Maybe buy enough pipe and build a pvc model to take to someone to build. lol

This is the motor drawing where I have marked off where it would connect.

Just had a thought and never payed attention but why not use a Rebel frame? From a 450 or a 250 and mod it out with a rigid and extend the neck if need be.

I just had an Aphyphony (Sure as hell I didnt spell it right) but I have this photo as my computer background and just noticed how its attached to the frame, Have been looking for the information of GS motorco to ask how much they would sell this particular frame so I can just make this same thing but maybe they would consider making just the front section cheaper? LOL Feel like a dumbass right now been staring me in the face 8-5 7 days a week.

Just adding more information

My name is Jesus not god, I dont work that way. lol

Figureing out everything so I can go the smart way once I have everything paid off (bike at least) This way I can have a little custom bike for work and buy myself a bigger bike later.

Also figure stock motor and mileage not too bad.

Here are the specs.

Engine Type: Parallel twin-cylinder 4 stroke DOHC; two valves per cylinder
Engine Displacement : 300cc
Rake and Trail : 38 Degrees
Wheel Base : 64 inches
Seat Height : 24 inces
Fromt Suspension : Dual Shocks (Fully Adjustable)
Front Brake : Dual Disc with Twin Piston Calipers
Rear Brake: Single Disk with Twin Piston Caliper
Front Tire: 80-90-21
Rear Tire: 160-90-16
Fuel Capacity: 2.5 Gal (Peanut Tank)
Weight : 360 (Wet)

Another thing I figured is motor difference.

The 300 CC Pag motor
HP: 23.8 @ 6500 RPM
Torq: 15.5 @ 6500 RPM
Bore and Stroke: 57 x 53 mm
Compression Ratio : 10.2:1
MPG Rating: 65

The Blast Motor
491.64 CC
HP: 33.99 @ 7500 RPM
Torq: 41 @ 3200 RPM
Bore and Stroke : 88.9 x 79.4 mm
Compression : 9.2:1
MPG Rating: 70

The "dry" weight of the blast is 359.4 lbs
So roughly weights the same one will everything and one with no fuell and no oil in it.

The blast holds 2.8 Gallons.

I figure over all it would be lighter, cooler looking. and, AND different.
Plus when you gun it I dont lose a bit of power when the bike compresses the shocks befor take off it would be a bit more power to the rear.

Of course I could always be wronge

Hehe

Also looking into a turbo found some BMW. Turbo chargers and a few volvo chargers at a local junk yard am going to try and hit them up this weekend to see about picking one up.

Was told to stick around 5-6 lbs of torq and a guy on a local forum told me to stay around 2-3 so not sure yet but also was told Mikuni Flat side carb and the turbo would work.

(This came from a buddy who is building a turbo drag blast)
