First Class Fitment 2013

LoS Garage took a little road trip last weekend from Chicago to New Jersey for Canibeat’s First Class Fitment show. We drove the LoS support vehicle, an AirRex bagged Honda Fit. From day one, I wanted the Fit to be able to trailer our scooters. So with a hitch installed and a trailer securely attached, GDLK and Kaiju were strapped down and ready to make this 800 mile journey to the east.

Less is More

Time to dust off the winter bug and start cracking again on the custom parts and builds. Right now is about -3 F here in Chicago which is pretty damn cold, but I wanted to come back to the CVT kit i installed on the Kaiju and actually do some weight inspection to see if there are any differences between the stock parts (bin pile) and the aftermarket kit.  We actually weighted the parts while we weighted the rollers. I might  as well find out what im putting in the bike.

Stock parts

Total weight: 426g

So from the looks of it Im saving about 30g of rotational mass in the CVT alone. I didn’t get to inspect and weight the Clutch bell housing, but I know for sure there was a lot of weight reduction on the aftermarket housing since its CNC. All of the weight  reduction being done on the CVT will help the bike rev faster creating a faster acceleration.

On another note we took the bike out in 30F weather to do a little photoshoot for a euro magazine. Here is a quick teaser and wallpaper if you need one, lol.
