I'm not an engineer or an auto expert, but I still wonder if it wouldnt be easier to modify the crankshaft of one of the two twin-cylinder engines made in India (RD 350 and Yezdi 350) than to build one from scratch


There are plenty of those lying around, I'm sure. I have 2 spare RD 350 crankshafts, in any case...

With you steeroid. Forging a crank can be pretty tough and expensive to produce one off pieces. Maybe they are using an existing crank only.

My mistake - I'd forgotten that they're developing a V Twin and not an in-line twin. Still should be possible to source one from abroad...

2 stroke engines have a different style cranks with roller bearings, because they dont use oil lubrication. They just have a faint mist of 2T. 4-strokes have shell bearings which need to be lots of lube.

Hey !
Nice to know that someone has taken up an effort to modify the Fiero...but please dont sideline important factors while designing...
1st-mods to the cradle and chassis have to be made at specific places...ensuring proper weight distribution..
2nd-the 295 c.c engine and 27 bhp might work out to be too much for the old fiero chassis..( every chassis is made with a specific weight and power output in mind)
3rd-the crankshaft you are talin about might be better off from a 2-stroke engine already available in India...
Please...Design is n ot easy...think a hundred times before you execute something..
Regards...

These things were thought a 1000 times over before the work commenced,.....anyways the engine is almost ready to start cranking and its time to break the ice......

side by side, the work on my 200cc fiero will be complete this weekend...however the first episode was complete in june 2005, now after 3 mnths of riding and research, we have made some more updates and its gonna be even better! will post snaps and reports soon!
