Sam Wheeler: Race to 400mph (episode 3) - Engine
Sam Wheeler is one of the best motorcycle streamliner builders on the
planet. He is rebuilding his successful EZ HOOK/Parts Unlimited
streamliner to go over 400 MPH and brake the world record.
In Episode 2 we get an inside look at the new power plant, a Suzuki
Hayabusa that is being built by Vance & Hines one of the most successful
companies in motorcycle racing. We get an inside look at the Vance & Hines
Motorsports in Brownsburg Indiana, and the people behind this new engine.
Byron Hines, Eddie Krawiec, and Terry Vance tell us about the engine
project. We learn the secrets and see how they build it. Engine #1 is in
Sam's shop. We get to see the pieces of engine #2 before final assembly.
Hayabusa Valve Adjustment
A really nice customer of ours had his '07 GSX1300R "Hayabusa" in for it's
scheduled valve clearance inspection which is usually a couple hour job.
95% of the time, all the valves are in specs. However, on this (his second
valve inspect), I found nine valves just outside the maximum clearance. So,
this now became a much bigger job.
