Clever Man.

Post  Hammy on Thu 27 Sep 2012, 8:16 am

I was on the barge the other day, on my bike, going to the Big Island, and there was a bike/biker that I had not come across before on my many journeys. I gave him the statutory"Nod" as I rode on and parked myself for the trip. Soon after he wondered up to where I was to say gidday. His name was Kingsley ( first name ). English. About 40 ish. Short. Full leathers. Was riding an older Ninja. We got chatting as us bikers do. He lives on Russel Island . Works on the mainland teaching engineering at a Uni'. He then said " I will now make you laugh, or think that I am some sort of nutter ". He told me that he is working on, and has been for some time, a valveless head that he will soon be putting into production. He told me that he has a prototype bike all ready to use, and showed me a couple of pics on his phone of it. Another Ninja that he has rebuilt from the ground up to be the experimental test bike for the new head. No cams to worry about. No rev limit. Increased HP. No adjustment needed. He told me that he had approached the car industry, but they were not interested. So he thinks he can market them at the bike market as an aftermarket upgrade. He has already converted the test Ninja to fuel injection. Told me he got all the throttle bodies, ECU, plug n play wiring harness from the States for only $600. Said it worked like a charm. I am definately going to try and catch up with him again to see how his invention is going. This is just one more reason that I love ridind Bikes. The people that you meet. Smile

Only if the piston had a power stroke every time it passes TDC.

Definately a 4 stroker. I would be very keen to find out more about the EFI kit conversions. He did tell me the name of the company in the US that did them. But of course I did not write it down and my old grey matter is starting to forge thin s Smile For $600 it might be an interesting exercise on " Rosie ". At least his name was easy to remember.
