Hey guys, this is long overdue.......lets get this thing done!
Here is the original thread from 2011: https://www.suzukicentral.com/forums/...kie-build.html
For the new guys, go check out the pics of gusseting and other banter about my original intentions for this build.
So as you can imagine, a lot has changed since 2011 when I first started getting serious about this monster build. We know a lot more about how to squeeze more power out of the Z engine. There are also some new products available now (cam grinds, fuels, PC colors, etc.). So the build is going to stray slightly from the original (page 1 old thread) description but its still The Zookie Build!
-FCR 44 (or bigger, whatever sredrum can make it) with bell mouth and custom intake to replace airbox and boot
-ported head with oversized kibblewhites done by CFM, see the thread with awesome pics here: https://www.suzukicentral.com/forums/...er-limits.html
-96mm 14.5:1 piston, with slick coated skirt and ceramic coated crown
-+5 hotrods stroker crank, with titanium rod and wrist pin (still need to accurately weigh it compared to the hotrods and stock rods, its really light.)
- web 539+3+3 cams are in the box of parts, but i spoke to chuck and if i can swing the cash i think I'm going with his grinds which are bigger. id rather spend the money to get it running with the 539's first if that's what it comes down to, can always upgrade later.
-trailtech lightened flywheel
-probably going to build my own exhaust, the barker is really nice and fits a heavy breather well, but i want to try my own design i have been playing with on the calculators for some time now. regardless....really big exhaust.
-removing all reverse related non essential parts
-"removing" neutral, or.....removing first and making it N-2-3-4-5. still on the fence with that one. also i want to cut weight off anything i can without compromising durability.
-cryogenic treating, followed by isotropic surface refinishing gears and shafts.
-hinson clutch, 400ex springs if i can make them pull easy with the hydraulic clutch i have.
-walsh +3+1 long travel fronts, with quadrate long travel elkas
-RPM long travel swinger with elka link and long travel remote res. elka shock. I havent decided if I want to extend the swingarm or leave it stock. the quad PLANTS the ass end HARD right now...NO spin on the holeshots which is great but the quad really wants to flip over. adding more power probably wont help.
-gusseted by me, see the original build thread for pics and descriptions.
-lowered adjustable subframe mounted with heims
-oversized radiator, no fan.
-oversized aluminum oil tank
-I'd like to have a bump seat made for it
-OMF beadlocks all around
-maier race cut plastics (no headlight)
-stick steering stabilizer (I know, rotary is better.....but I own the stick and it works well for me)
-moving battery to the front, and hopefully running a lithium ion super light battery.
COLOR: I think I am going to do Jollipop candy blue over pure white for the frame PC, and do the swinger, lower arms, and other stuff wet black. the plastics are white, and eventually id like to get graphics made that look like white and blue wood grain. the inspiration for that came from me sanding the front door on my house.
I'll add pics and other stuff as I think of it. I am bored in a hotel so I figured now was a good time to sit down and write a thread
