  • motorcycle engined seven

    I'm in the process of purchasing a 7 with a motorcycle engine and am contemplating switching the engine to a Suzuki Hayabusa. Anybody have any info or experience with what's entailed in the installation?

    No personal experience, but some names: Arturo Bejar and Mike Downs appear to have Hayabusa powered Se7ens in California (if you want to contact them I am sure Woody Harris has the phone number). Also Walt Zettner in Texas who built his Hyabusa Birkin from scratch. He lurks on the Birkinowners Yahoo group and is always good for some advice. He won the NASA super unlimited class (under 3 liter) in Texas last year so I guess he must have done something right.

      Websearch Dennis Palatov in Portland, OR. He built the neauty that now resides here and should be @ the Streets next month. I think that it has a Megabusa.

        I am definitely interested in swapping my engine for a Hayabusa. I think it might be the only way I will ever get it registered here.

          My wife has an old sewing machine. You can salvage the motor from that if you want. I think it's a Singer. Motor weighs about 1.5 pounds and will rev to about 20,000 rpm.

            You could also post on the UK Blatchat site as well as a few Huyabusa's have been done there, indeed the club sprint (autocross) champion last year was one of these.
