  1. Parts have arrived and i am pretty confident this will be a good working unit again. A small change in plans. It is not possible to change the impeller without a total teardown of the rotrex, while interesting enough it's not something I want to do again just to change the impeller. Cast out, CNC in!
  2. Looking good as usual! So you will have access to the dipstick through a hole in the right panel right? You said you have been gathering parts for ages, but you had the complete SC kit minus the cooler or am I wrong? No outboard support bearing on the rotrex? Did you fab the toothed pulleys or are they the last revision from Dan? Where did you put the rectifier? Could we get a look under the hood Please ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜ณ
  3. Valve cover cleaned up nicely, radiators even more so. I even found som hidden developing issues needed sorting. The last pictures are just for fun. Rsv4 water pump housing vs the VFR. RC51 Left radiator vs VFR Therese parts i have lying around just to see if there is any possibility of fabricating something already accessible to me.
  4. There is no need to balance this assembly. The shaft is supported on 3 large rollers and is machined as a single part so this is naturally balanced. The impeller is cast OEM and balanced 2 ways alone before it is put on the shaft and fixed with a steel nut on the first versions and aluminium nut on the later gen1's Your setup certainly needs pics ๐Ÿ™‚ I guessing this is not the warbird?
  5. I'm pretty sure the oil temps are ok, but that's a guess based on the climate i live in. I'll make a temp sensor thing this year just to confirm. Do you have the gen2 version? Pictures should be a must from what I've seen of your fab skills before. In other news I've decided to do this the hard way. I'll put everything together, rotrex fixed and unmodified, stock headers, no rapidbike, brakes and suspension and put in on the Dyno for fun and find the weight numbers before i start the diet and all-around upgrades. This should go rather quickly - then for the upgrades, and it will also include a billet impeller either before or after the headers/rapidbike.
  6. I'll post my findings when i am sure everything is repairable and quoted. The "gen2" rotrex C15 explicitly states that oil reservoir can not stay in Dan's location. The reason for this is that the rotrex is a dry-sump with scavenging pump and it will start sending oil out behind the impeller. Did you fab something nice already?
  7. I'm ashamed! She does not look pretty without her clothes! Let's see what we can do about this... I've made some research and tried to analyze the charger failure. There might be some very interesting information coming up for us rotrex guys as a result of this blown piece of danish technology.
  8. You go to office and fix this stupid rule!
  9. No, there is nothing true about it. The salary is approx double and the ticket price is based on how fast in km/h over the current speed limit. You can go to jail an be considered a criminal, but that's full send/all beans i guess. I've had zero tickets on 2 wheels ๐Ÿ‘
  10. It's hot for sure, but Norway's not! This clutch myth is surely diehard. I'm well over 30k km supercharged and almost 70k km total on a clutch from 99' only stronger springs. Du mangler ร† i alfabetet ditt ๐Ÿ˜…
  11. I saw this last year at the bank, put it all in crypto instead - that makes these numbers look great in retrospect ๐Ÿ˜…
  12. Today I had the time to sneak the vfr past all my projects and in to the shop. It's a wierd feeling because I am super excited to find the cause of the loudest supercharger i ever heard - and I've been at top-fuel dragster shows many times! I have this diseases that finds pleasure in mechanical faults, even on my own stuff... It's a great feeling to finally tear a rotrex down as i e been itching to se how it's made. Time to spend mad amounts of USD, again...
  13. Well, you have made some right choices in your life ๐Ÿ™‚ I seem to remember 11 sold...
