DragonSlayer Drag Bike Project
PROJECT MISSION STATEMENT
The mission is to produce through the collective efforts of a group of
aftermarket manufactures and dedicated racers, a 2 cylinder V style Pro Stock
Motorcycle that has the performance capabilities to compete at a world class
level. The technology gained by the project would then be marketed to all racers
and custom builders by the respective manufactures at competitive prices.
The target completion date is early spring of 2002. This would give project
participants time to build their respective components in the off-season or slow
From a manufactures perspective, this project will give manufactures maximum
product exposure via the NHRA arena and the projects ability to draw media
The progress of the project will be monitored on the Internet so that all
participants remain involved from start to finish.
Within 2 days of the conception of the project, manufacturers have
tentatively committed to the following:
2 sets billet engine cases complete with cranks rods and cylinders
Motor plates and mounts as required
Billet triple trees
Input from experienced teams about clutches, transmissions, cams and other
items that are required for a world class race bike is need in order to evaluate
and approach the respective manufactures.
The concept that is for a V60 long rod, large bore, short stroke overhead cam
engine with a 60 degree offset crank pin. These are requirements to create an
even fire motor with the capability of 10,000 RPM. Engine configuration has been
fixed as a 4.5" bore by 3.8" stroke engine. Horsepower estimates are
adequate to make the bike competitive in NHRA ProStock bike.
