I've been looking for a new build and I have my eye on a zx10r. I think a dry clutch is possible, yet I'm not finding the right parts.

Off hand, I think I'd weld shut the oil journals and get either an aftermarket dry clutch or something off a Ducati.

Another hurdle will be rebuilding the fuel system with keihin carburetors. Plenty of used parts online.

Y'all have fun with your computer's and stuff. Thanks for any tips in advance

Welcome to the party!

That's a hell of a first post! You don't see this sort of thing everyday!

So, you are intending to weld up the lower crankcase openings for the water and oil pumps behind the clutch basket and associated oil supply passages through the transmisson shafts? Fugg it, just use JB Weld and cake that crap around! :lol: That clackety-clack-clack clutch noise is totally worth it!

I wish you well with your tuning on getting the engine running on the old-school carb bank! I'd recommend a set of CV carbs as opposed to the really old vacuum slide ones! Go big or go home, ya know! :idea: I don't foresee any tuning issues related to the fuel pump and feed lines, pressure fed airbox, traction control, ride-by-wire, quickshifter, etc. And that choke lever on the left clip-on will be SOOOO sweet! All your friends will be jealous! Just unplug all those sensors and the ECU will ignore them. Easy-peazy!

Have fun reinventing the wheel and stuff! I'll just plug in my laptop and twiddle around with some numbers in the meantime. :thumbsup:
