2.5L Rocket III Stroker

2.5L Rocket III Stroker

Thought ye lads might like a bit of hardcore pornography :lbhbh:

After 8 months lead time, my stroker billet crank with welded on gears, and Carrillo H beam rods landed today.

This will be the 1st increased displacement Rocket III engine in the world.

The new Rocket 3 is 2457cc, but that’s a new stock engine. This will be 2472cc, up from the stock 2294cc.

It’s so nice i don’t want to put it in an engine :lbhbh:

I'm having some trouble getting it nice and firm..

I’m having some trouble getting it nice and firm..

So much so that the wife complains that her hand is sore from pulling on it. In fact, despite our best efforts we have only managed to get it half as hard as it was before. You can imagine our frustration, having pumped repeatedly while simultaneously tweaking both the right and then left hand nipples, it still refuses to become fully rigid!


I am of course referring to the front brake lever of the Busa (tokico 4 pots, not the much maligned 6 pots of yore) Having rebuilt the calipers and spending over an hour bleeding the brakes it still isn’t close to what it was. I did bleed the banjo bolt at the master cylinder but to no avail. I’m about to leave it overnight with the lever pulled in and secured with a cable tie. Is there anything else I mighy try that doesn’t require specialist tools?

THE 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship travels to Donington Park this weekend for round three of the 2019 season and while the famed motorcycle racing venue is a familiar visit for most of the riders, for Scott Redding it will be the first time he has raced there in a decade.
