FP1 is primered and ready for some Blowsion Kolors!
While Johnny and GWally have been hard at work making sure the FP1 will look amazing; Kyle Kennedy from DASA along with Erik Karn and Jordan Fielder up at Blowsion have been hard at work making sure it will run as good as it looks!
We are running a DASA 850 stock stroke power valve setup that will be fed with a set of dual 46's via DASA's new billet intake manifold.
We chose the dual 46 Mikuni carbs for a few reasons. First, this motor is capable of making a tremendous amount of power and in a hurry. If we were looking to maximize HP out of this package we would have put on a set of DASA dual 48's and called it a day. But there are some other considerations for me. One of those considerations is fuel economy. We typically ride a mile or more away from where we launch and a typical session will be somewhere around an hour and thirty minutes to two hours...basically whenever we run out of gas. Better fuel economy = more ride time = happy rider. Also, power delivery is as important if not more so than peak power. Earlier this year I rode Christian Young's Blowsion built Rickter and totally fell in love with the power delivery on that ski. It was pretty much right then that I decided I wanted to replicate that motor as much as possible, and we have basically done that with this package. The final consideration for us on this build was budget. Because this motor package uses stock cases, and a stock stroke crank it winds up being amazingly cost effective for the amount of power that can be extracted from it! So sticking with a stockish carb setup keeps things a little more manageable from the $$ side of things.
The electronics are housed inside one of Cold-Fusion's new Clear View Billet Electrical Boxes anodized in black. We are running a pretty standard setup with a MSD enhancer. The Clear View box is an awesome upgrade over stock, not only does it seal way better, when troubleshooting issues, it's awesome to be able to just look and see if electronics have been compromised by water...plus it looks amazing! That Billet Flywheel Cover from Cold Fusion is housing a Jetinetics light weight charging flywheel to give the motor a little more snap!
