TODAY! NE MC Expo- Motor Swap for the R5e

Stop by the show today and watch a live motor transplant for the R5e!  1pm, booth 652, just behind the stage.

This…

Is going into this:

This will give me HUGE low-end torque, while keeping a top RPM of 6000.  It can handle 25kW peak, vs. the 12kW of the ETEK, but will increase the weight about 15lbs.  Estimated ET for swap?  15min.  (Update: how about 8:03.5, bitches!  YEAH!)

The motor is the Motenergy ME1003, from John Fiorenza…  the same man who designed the original Briggs and Stratton ETEK.

Here it is:

mmm.  Beefy!

    • LOVE it! Ran it in the parking lot before loading it back on the trailer, in front of a few chopper dudes, they were cheering me! It was a blast!
