    I'll bet it's hard to keep the front end on the ground.

    A chassis worthy of the powerplant! Very nice bit of engineering right there.

    Hi there Vinny!!! I'd be worried that the motor wouldn't get enough air flow around it and would overheat. The original suffered from that and it had alot of air flow.

    :hello: Most likely he has an oil cooler on it and a few electrical fans.

    Hi Markus, you may be right about the need for some air flow to keep that motor cool!
    That fairing looks quite snug and I don't think the air flow through the aperture at the front would do enough?
    RJ - oil cooler and fans would be a good aad!

    Is oil cooling even a thing for 2 strokes? With the better oils available these days, I'd think overheating shouldn't be much of a problem. Just gotta keep it moving thru the air and get the jetting right.

    Yeah, the guys that created that bike surely addressed the heat issue on these motors one way or the other. They did a nice job!

    It doesn't seem like the best place for cooling that middle head.

    Those GT750s got away with a big radiator and no fan. I think the first year came with but it was found that it wasn't needed. I had the '76 which had all the bugs worked out the year before the 4 strokes took over.
