Default Eagle Mike's and Sams 762 Stroker kit!

Like to thank Mike and Sam for letting ride the 762 stroker kit Gen I KLR 762 bike.
This motor was hella fast and surprisingly smooth.
It was fitted with a 17 tooth CS and I was still able to throttle wheelies with no clutch.
This is exciting news for the KLR family.
As you may or may not know, he's ordered some Pistons for testing and a dyno with a water brake.
Keep an eye out on his site for more details.

From EM's homepage:

Quote:
We showed the running KLR762 for the first time. This is just a proof of concept, a few parts thrown together. It runs and sounds just like a stock klr650, only MUCH stronger. We have a small batch of pistons on order. It will be at least 6 weeks before we can test those. THERE IS NO PRICING INFO AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING COMPLETE ENGINES, OR ASSEMBLING ENGINES. We will likely make some changes to the piston design after we test this batch. After we've proofed the production process, we'll announce pricing and other details. This doesn't use a cylinder spacer, looks like a stock engine on the outside. It does require an aftermarket cylinder sleeve, and a stroked crankshaft. This means splitting the cases. The piston is specific to this project. No other piston can be used.
Not sure if i'll ever convince myself to spend what I imagine will be $1,000 or more to do this. But it's something to drool over.

Also interested to see the dyno numbers on it, since Mike's getting a dyno too.

It's definitely not for everyone. Especially considering the work needed to install the mod.
All I can say is, I have one of the fastest KLR 692's that Mike and myself did a full rebuild on (upper and lower) and it has all the peripheral mods, and the 762 kit with none of the peripheral mods and a 17 tooth CS simply blows my 692 away. So much throttle response and torque in all the gears.
I have a plated CRF450R and the 762 feels similar (considering) under acceleration.
It's just that good. As are all of Mike's products and mods.

I keep saying it, " There's nothing Mike makes or sells that doesn't work".

Super excited with his other projects also.

Well, thankfully I have a spare bottom half of a motor out of a '99 that I can split open with no regrets. When install details come about, i'll be able to tear that apart and test my willingness to complete the mod without ever touching my running bike.

We'll be trying some custom camshafts soon.

We are experimenting right now to see how much gear it will pull. With current setup, 2 up, sitting up, pulls past 6500 in 5th. Geared 17/43.

Stock camshafts! Stock ignition! Stock exhaust! Gen 2 header, stock muffler.
We are running a different carb. Details on that soon. Adapters for the new carb are in the works.

Default Re: Eagle Mike's and Sams 762 Stroker kit!

Whatever you think it will/should cost....then double it and you might be close.

There's still a ton of R&R left to do. Not so much with the stroker portion...that's been in development for more than a year. Its all the other upgrades that should be done to further compliment a stroker kit.

I'd suspect you'll see new cams to greatly increase the low 'effective' compression of the KLR engine. The CV carb needs to go as well...rubbish in this kind of application. FI would be ideal as you can change/modify fueling/timing but a good performance carb would work very well. Issue is the huge freaking starter motor and its location on the KLR engine. Pretty much knocks out any/all decent carbs. If a carb can be found you'd want to have TPS added. Again, to take advantage of timing. Interestingly enough, I've had a couple new KLR's in the shop lately and the OEM carb now has milled surface for addition of a TPS. Kawi has been saying in their literature for a few years the KLR has TPS...not yet! Much like they said it had a Cat in the muffler (didn't happen till 2yrs later). I could go on...

Beta pistons are in. Weight is great, right at the same as current 685 kit.

The torque is quite strong with this setup.

A few weeks, and we'll have 3 or 4 of these running.

Factors affecting cost, in addition to normal top end job:
-piston kit
-aftermarket liner
-install and bore liner, requires clearancing cylinder casting a little in coolant area. Seen a few skip this - bad idea.
-remove engine from frame
-split cases, remove crankshaft assembly (inspect everything while you're in there)
-press crankshaft assembly apart
-stroke crankshaft halves
-assemble crankshaft
-assemble engine
-put engine back in frame

We'll also be offering a different carb setup.

I read about there having been issues in splitting up the crank assembly before. Has this been boiled down to any kind of technique or does it just require a huge press or adapter of sorts? I've got a 12T and 20T at my disposal, so I have to wonder if either is sufficient for the task.

Can you tell us if you will be able to offer or subcontract the clearance and install of bore liner and the stroking out of the crank halves?

It does require special tools and technique (experience) to split and re-assemble the crank. We will offer that, and the stroke/crankshaft modification. No pricing as yet.

I guess it's time to begin socking away some money. We'll see how well the wife likes Travis' reasoning of "Still cheaper than buying a bigger bike."

Reason has nothing to do with this project. This one falls cleanly into the "Because we can" category.

If finances went into every decision I'd have No hobbies at all.

Try "Beats doing crack, or hanging out at the bar."

I'm going to find a project bike for a "Monster" build. Right after I figure out where to live in FL and get a new shop set up.

Living the life as EO on the USNS POMEROY for few months.

Beautiful out here.

That will go along with the A15 with a DMC enduro sidecar sitting in my barn.

Time to getting them both running this summer with some nice engine parts, ;-)
