This is another edit, no point debating aliens rights etc. when the original intent was to share bike tech.

Arktasian:

You are the one who refereed to "Project K Bikes" as the "Adulterated Sector".

You then have been modifying posts by removing content.  I have them archived so it really does not matter.

I spoke to mystic red about the matter.  He said live and let live.  You can modify your posts by removing content or you can share your experience here, it's your choice.

Live and let live.

I want to tear all that out and go with the MS and replicate what you are doing.  I am patiently waiting for your project to be complete because I don't know where to start and have no idea how to get it done and tuned.

If you decide to stop posting here, please PM me the place you are going to share your MS build.

Where are you at on this project ?

I'm negotiating a high mileage K75 from Minnesota.

Hello Blue - good to hear your keeping the project in mind.
For my 75, a number of things have interrupted shop time but following is the project status:
- crank sensor utilizing a 36/1 tone wheel designs set.
- cam position ( for sequential ignition & fuel) will be developed via map signal on cylinder #1 which is a reliable strategy via MicroSquirt, but not yet bench test ( pretty confident in that)
- turbo manifold feed complete utilizing 321SS, items like mount bracket, exit plumbing, and a hollowed stock muffler set in design stage.
- turbo cartridge lube circuit and cooling lines designed and materials ready.
-  charge air cooler and inlet manifold Log set in design phase, not built.
- ECU location set and alternate battery location chosen.
- ECU flashed with an MSQ created from table generators and known ( to me) reasonable settings.
So, as you can see, a lot of planning but very little other forward movement from previous considerations.
 If your  seriously entertaining doing one up, Id say go for it & I can help get through the new stuff if you beat me to it.
Regards,
Lorne

As mentioned above, this project has been slow in moving forward, although I decided to build the crank sensor assembly involving some aluminum fab/ welding after encountering a pinhole leak on another project item that holds boxer engine oil pressure in check. It sprung a leak after a low psi oil system "precharge" routine (despite being two seasons old and always dry as a bone).
Rather than machining a solid billet aluminum housing I have opted to fabricate - more by reason of minimal project fund expenditure than excellence.
I'll leave a few photos of the initial bits, and then again once its completed.

The Leslie is a Hammond Organ speaker; it goes with the tone wheel.  It's what makes that distinctive organ sound of the 60's and early 70's blues and rock.  I guess you have to be a musician collecting Social Security to know what it is.  A lot of us suffered through bands with organists and their 400 pound instruments.

I actually considered speakers, but wasn't aware of the signal scrotator aspect on those.
And I prefer to listen to the bike and ambient sounds from your surroundings, rather than blasting tunes ( for instance for those on Harley's, usually in competition with exaggerated exhaust blatting noises)
Actually, not too far behind in the "Social Security" collection phase.

In Edit, I'm used to funky spell correct activity, but the above takes things to a disturbing new level.

Below is the throttle position sensor I've married to the throttle body - in place of the on/off switch. That's a fairly important ingredient for MS to mount a successful reign of control over all that power cool shades
Been skimping at the bone yard again, this one is from a 2001 Dodge Dakota, Delphi p/n SS10406 & required a modicum of shaft massage to fit (& dirt cheap new)

So have you done any dyno pulls yet?  :D

Greetings Jim, welcome to the fold & congrats on your recent K acquisition. Have you introduced it here yet at "The Brick"?
There has been a modicum of progress on the K75 microsquirt systems etc, but main problem in part due to a conflict in reasons for having the bike. Spreading the work on it out over those winter months or evenings when distraction is required is in contravention of the pressure to get her done which is the normal approach here. I'm trying to take an "Alfred E Newman" approach and not worry about it.
I have been building more bits for the 36/1 tone or chopper wheel ignition system that needs to take the place of the twin hall unit up front. Our engines offer many excellent opportunities to apply unique debauchery and alteration, as I'm sure is the default reception.  I'll post up photos of items as they are finished - but suffice it to say I've been having fun playing on lathe and mill machines.
Airhead is still going through some procedures, "but I didn't mention that".
Cheers,
Lorne.

Hey Lorne.  Nope, that was my first post here.  This is my second.  I'll work up an intro soon.  Just signed up.

I'm interested in your chopper wheel adapters, selfishly so, since I will need the same adapters for my conversion.  I would like to get a few miles on mine before the MS changeover, but depending on winter progress on my airhead, and the available time, I may dive in before spring.  It will be a training project for that other project we have discussed.   :bmwsmile
