I also used a crank scraper fitted to the edge of the block & a windage tray to help keep oil in the pan. The pan was fitted with a larger sump area & trap doors to keep oil near the pick-up.
I ran 60 psi oil pressure max, ran Castrol 20w50 for break-in, changed to Mobil One 15w50 after one week. Never had a oil-pressure related failure. Keep in mind this was a hand built, balanced & blue-printed engine. Nothing was left as the factory made it.
There is definetely HP to be gained by controlling what happens in the crankcase. Cool

Lancer is at the hospital with his wife, he won't be responding.

You can go up to 97mm with boring out the existing sleeve (marginal wall thickness on the sleeve when you do this)-.

You can resleeve to 100mm without interfering too badly with the studs

We have some list history with 95mm & 97mm bore jobs working out OK

We got NO sucess stories with the bigger resleeve bore jobs

There are a variety of year models of DR650 with hop up pistons that will "fit" but are the wrong weight to balance out the primary crank balance (too light)

The 95 year model and earlier DR650 uses the same piston configuration as the Savage and will come "close" to primary balance.

We had one engine bust off the counterbalancer complete (broke the main crank housing) where an insert slug from inside the piston wrist pin that was intended to fix the balance issue got loose when the piston blew and the bits and pieces got into the gearing that ran the counterbalancer.   This happened at 60 mph on the interstate .....

Hey, you know what a Frankie bike is?   Going too far with the mods can give you one -- they go like a bat out of hell for a week or so and then break down for yet one more brand new reason.



         and yes, your mileage may vary .....

Here are the weights of the stock and 97mm pistons with their wrist pins, no rings:




Those convert to 480.5g and 455g

On the box of the wiseco piston kit, it says 0.0025" clearance.

Is that correct for our little savage?
