So, fitted my oem yamaha raptor 660 petcock with a 90 degree outlet. Drilled and threaded and locktite. Hopefully Its sealed tight and works for years to Come.

Also ordered a xs clutch Kit, after advice on this forum, Hopefully it works as attended :)

Tomorrow i Will ask the machine shop thats gonna bore and hone my cylinders, if They Are able to mill out the Reed area, so my v force Will fit.
Fingers crossed They can do it All in house.


Stay tuned folks

So, my uncle helped me out again, and Got the cylinders prepped to fit the yz85 vforce reeds.

Next i Will be delivering the cylinders to be bored and honed asap.

So, finally some progress

After receiving the cylinders from bore and hone, i dremeled out the 'bridge' in the in the cylinder ( Reed goes in), cleaned it good, oiled up and Got the top end together. Sprayed it with heat resistent clear coat afterwards to protect the bare alu.

As It sits now

Next i Will try to make a seat pan( No expetience what so ever) in some 1,2mm sheet metal. Hopefully i can make it work
