New crankshafts 54 mm stroke
Year 2016 updated version of the 54.4 mm stroke crankshafts for the RG 500.
Special thanks to a couple of our clients who decided to finance the project and to test the product, thus making the new version possible. Like many of you already know, the 54.4 mm stroke project that was initially criticized and then everyone tried to emulate, was first designed and announced by us about ten years ago, there had been two previous versions, the last one dyno-tested achieving excellent results around 2010, then the project stagnated a bit due to the lack of time (as the RG500 community welcomed us with overwhelming enthusiasm sending us thousands of emails and minor requests and making us 101% busy) and lack of funding. Thus, thanks to the financing and trust given us by two special clients, the project is alive again and benefiting of the ten year's experience it reaches its third version.
The new version of the cylinders will follow shortly, porting also updated to the state of the art of the 2016 two-stroke racing engines, and will be tested too.
Regarding the price: we receive lots of emails from our friends asking for the price. We are happy for the enthusiasm our project aroused in the community, but we are not able to tell the final price of the kit yet. To get an idea you could check a spares catalogue of any 125 cc go-kart or motocross and see how much it totals when putting together 4 cranks, 4 rods, 4 cylinders, 4 pistons, 4 heads, etc. This will give a rough estimate. We can determine the exact price only after the prototype we are manufacturing, will be completed and tested.
