    That weeds out DOHC engine, no kickstarter on them at all.

    You will tear out the kickstarter gear there, it is geared backwards for leverage and will tear up quickly. As well, it is not positively driven both ways, one way it slips 100% and that engine will not be hooked up to the other.

    When you join any engines you join at the crank pretty much only, if you use primary drive you will tear it out too (as someone else pointed out and he is an expert on SOHC) as it breaks too with only one engine on it not two.

    Not so, the DOHC never hit the classic status the SOHC continues to hold even now.

    Is the DOHC hardier? More able to handle added power? They advertise this heavy duty chain to hold up under 90 HP. http://cyclexchange.net/index%20pics/kit%20bike.pdf

    The article there is somewhat misleading. The Hyvo chain type is not as rpm limited as they have you think, it gets used in the DOHC and at higher rpm, they redline at 9500 rpm and the OEM 1100 there makes 108 hp.

    The problem of chain morphs into another one. Look at the SOHC split crankcase in pic #5 of that article. The crank has a main bearing then the chain then a rod assembly THEN another main bearing. Meaning that once you stress the crank enough to begin to yank it out of true with the chain load you also yank that first unsupported rod (#3) out of true as it does not have a main bearing on both sides of it. The result is that that particular rod can spin the bearing much easier than the other three and exactly what the DOHC begins to do with bigger motors and more power. Even a stock 750 DOHC will show more rod wear on one side of the rod bearing if the engine is run hard.

    With the assumed power of the 1100 Honda made changes but they made things worse instead. The chain got widened to carry more power but the added weight then made the crank flex even more and more rod problems. Why most guys who race then use a 900 crank instead, it has the smaller chain but still lasts about the same and harder to chew up rod bearings on it.

    So, 12 of one thing and a dozen of another.

    This guy has installed a supercharger on the right side of his crank case. How do you do that? Seems that would be where I want my transfer gears.Click image for larger version.

    And this guy has his supercharger pulley mounted on the left side of his crank case. If I could have one shaft on the right, and the other on the left, I could bolt them together!Click image for larger version.
