Yamaha RD 500 custom pipes

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Amazing.

Two strokes and welding, what a great combination. Love your work.

Beautiful! I'd love to hear them under hard acceleration. Can you tell me how you design the chamber dimensions? Is there a program for that?

I have to comment here. You can spot a pro and an amateur very easy with "stroke" versus "cycle". There's no such thing as a "two-cycle" or "four cycle" motor.

Your options are "two-stroke cycle", and "four-stroke cycle". You're describing what happens in ONE cycle of the motor.

Sadly, manufacturers of lawn equipment are following the trend of crappy language, and calling their equipment "two-cycle" and "four-cycle".

And he's the guy that sits with his crew while they work on his bike and watches instead of bouncing around to every team, trying to get someone to like him. Has never worked.

Indeed. I noted that he said "two-stroke", not "two-cycle", throughout his comments.
