Kramit RV3 Rebuild
« on: July 21, 2014, 09:16:40 PM »
I have started the rebuild on the Kramit.  Geez, this thing is built like a tank.  So many nuts and bolts.  But so far it has been a easy strip down I made sure I have taken a lot of photos because I'm sure I wont find a diagram of what goes where. My new bike stand is awesome, I didn't I buy one of these years ago??         


I hope this is one peace.

I guess they couldn't find a front sprocket.

With the amount of dirt in the carb intake its no wonder the motor is noisy.

I Think it's had a Dakars worth of dirt though the motor.  Yeah it is a disk valve same as the SWM or Canam bottom end with a LC top end.  I could sell the shock, I've got a much better one to go in 8).   


The RAVE unit Beats me how it works, I just find its cool its held together with zip ties ???.



Not what you want to see in the air boot :'(

There's a water pump installed where the oil pump is on the Can Am

The results of the dirt. 


Cool, I've got a new rod in stock.  Bugger, the piston is different to the Air cooled motor.

Is it 68x 68 bore/stroke, lots of bits are standard Rotax stuff. The water pump was used to convert air cooled Can Am bottom ends to water cooled to make the 124 and 244 kart/road race engines. The RAVE valve is standard Rotax stuff, gear box if 5 sp with be the same as any other Rotax 5sp same for the 6 sp. Drop me a PM if ever need any bits

Is there anything you can get to soak the nuts and bolts in to remove the rust before I send them to be plated?
