  • Nick's JZ - New and Improved!

    As my other thread is now just a wall of text thanks to the Photobucket money-grab, I thought I would start a new thread with some pics of my JZ's new configuration.

    Here is the previous setup:

    Was running:

    - TB 117cc
    - V2 head
    - VM26
    - Honda GB4 cases
    - Honda 4 speed
    - Takegawa Special Clutch (wet)

    Great engine, but at the time I originally built the JZ I was budget constrained, so wasn't what I really wanted.


    So I built the DOHC I always wanted:

    - Takegawa Limited Edition Hydraulic Dry Slipper Clutch

        Although I'm more fan of the simlpe design, you have certainly done well . Whats more, it still looks like a Z50, not a weird conglomeration of bits.

        As for photobucket, i think they've shot themselves in the foot.
        Once I thought I was wrong, I was mistaken

          Mate that is a cracker and anytime you need to store it, I will find some room in my shed for it.

              gorge arse.
              You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

                  It is a little 'busier' than I had planned, but limited by time (rushed it to do DGR 2017) and also having everything function as intended. If I ever get the time, I might go over it again and try and clean things up a bit.

                  At present it does over 100km/h (haven't tested how far), but I've chosen a compromise between cruising speed and acceleration as the gearing to start with.

                    Awesome bike Nick.

                    What did you think of the shift up bearing stator plate? And also - the taky clutch - did you buy a whole kit or just add parts to your existing special clutch?

                      Cheers mate.

                      Unfortunately I have no idea how good the stator plate works as I built it with this plate, so couldn't compare to stock. It is beautifully machined and would do a similar (but less effective) job to the Takegawa bearing stator cover. I wanted to keep the Honda cover so went with the Shift-Up solution.

                      As for the Takegawa clutch, bought a whole kit because I sold the previous engine complete. That said, I wouldn't have been able to convert it anyway as it was a regular Special Clutch. The only modular clutch covers are the "Type-R" series that was released a year or two back. Those covers you can convert between wet/dry and cable/hydraulic by just buying a few parts.
