I was cringing early on when you cut the boss off the block but you clearly are no cobbler. The throttle body adapter is beautiful. Does it attach to the throttle body with clamps like the OEM style? I originally thought that the inlet was aluminum but I now see that it's aluminum filled nylon. I hope that you don't have any header heat issues with it. It's fascinating what complex shapes can be made by laser sintering. The undercuts in the PAIR plates will tend to be a place for crud to accumulate. I'm suprised that you didn't put them on the underside. However IMO that's a perfect place for carbon/epoxy, which is lighter and won't need the undercuts. But I think that you may need special tools to do them by CNC because it's so abrasive.
Maybe for another o2 sensor.I've been subscribed and following this project with great interest. It seems redundant even saying it but... outstanding work! :thumbup
Sorry if this is a stupid question but I see you've installed a point on the exhaust for what looks to be a butterfly.... are you putting the SET valve back in??????
I second that from the threads.Maybe for another o2 sensor.
probly for an autotuner or logger system. I run a Motty with my Rotrex setup and it works great.I second that from the threads.
OP, find a outside provider for your images, takes a little extra work. I use PB myself for my images.
Here's a little guide on CNC machining parts. Most people probably think that all it takes to machine a billet part is a drawing and the push of a button. Ha, I wish. Unless you have access to some expensive CAM software and a 5-axis machine, it's nowhere near that easy.
First you create a drawing. In my case, a 2D drawing of the front and back of the part is required. Then, using those drawings, you create a program that the CNC mill runs on. With the software we have, this means manually creating toolpaths, figuring out cutting depths, and generating code for each individual tool to be used. For this supercharger bracket, a total of 4 programs (front, back, fixture, facing) will have to be created to get to the finished part.
We're not done yet. After ordering material, the blanks have to be cut to the proper length. Then, each blank is squared up and faced (front and back) to the final thickness. The first op is the front side...
Before the back can be machined, the fixture has to be created. This fixture locates the blanks via 3 pinned locations and will allow the final part to be cut out of the larger material.
The fixture is clamped in the vises and the blank is bolted to it. After loading up a different set of tools, the backside program is run...
The part is then unbolted from the fixture, cleaned off, deburred, and voilà:
The only thing to check now is fitment on the bike. Think it fits?
Woohoo! All is good. The only thing left to do now is send out the bracket and idler pulley for anodize.
