WTB 3XV SP cylinders
« on: March 28, 2020, 02:57:40 PM »
Turning an R model into a track racer. Any parts for this are needed. I have acquired TZ fairings and am now on to sourcing engine bits. The crank and dry clutch will come much later. I am looking for a higher spec cylinder and power valve set up then what I have. As it’s being built I am not worried if it’s not the same power valve system that I have as long as they are complete. I am changing the CDI anyway. Thanks for any help.

I'd advise that you have a read through all the different project threads if you haven't done already :-)

If it helps I can port the R cylinders to almost SP spec.. much cheaper than finding SP stuff.

Martin is "The Man" Gtidave74. Good pricing and service. Plus, you'll be dealing with a gentleman.

Thanks everyone I appreciate the input and advice I apologize for not responding earlier. I have found a 3XV 10 engine complete with dry clutch. I am wondering what is the best option for a head that has been cut I assume due to damage. Are there any out there? It’s a 3xv10 Y1 and what is the difference between a Y1 and a Y2? Thanks in advance

No physical difference between Y1 and Y2, more to do with the manual making references about left and right cylinders/head. (info courtesy of Juergen).

You will need to get someone machine and/or weld that head? The machining on that damaged head looks quite different from the other one, the squish band looks especially big..  Probably easier just get a spare from gecko?
