When they came out my 352, i couldn't believe how spindly and slight they are. My Matchless 500 motorcycle has a bigger rod !

I had an XS 650 Yamaha twin like a Norton and they were bulkier up top

than any FE rod but a Lemans, 7000 rpm Nascar rod. Tiny jounals and you had to break the crank to change the roller bearings, and the topend of them were the same width as the bottom end which had roller bearings around the pins.

You could actually split the crank hand get a Megacycle cam and move one side 90° to make a 270°/90° firing order instead of 360°, it got rid of a lot of vibration. Any 360° twin would dance on the centerstand if you vevved it up they vibrated so bad...

Megacycle made a 270/90 cam, and all you had to do was split the crank and

move the left cyl 6 splines forward and press it with a minumum of 12 tons press, less and it was too loose. , and I always converteed the TFI bikes to dual points so I could time each coil individually, you had to wire it like an early one with two coils instead of waste spark. It ran good, I did a few dirt flat track runs with it and it didn'y make more high end but it was a beast out of the corners. I forget his name but there was a guy at Norton who came up with the idea. Vibration was much better, the rear view mirror was actually useful on a street bike happy.gif
