Hope it will work as I want it to, Wish me luck, I have two shafts to do when I start on my engine project here in a couple of weeks.
I think so too. In so many cases I find I am short a tool of some kind and if the purchase can be offset by doing a couple of the operations then it is a buy deal for me. Even if it this tool post grinder fails to work for me in this application I have a machine shop I have dealt with for 30 years building molds that is going to do it for me so the more the cheaper either way !!!Hey Doug,
I just had a fellow forum member ask me if I knew anyone who could do this mod, so I will send him your way !
I also went out and checked in my garage, and it looks like a 4 1/2" Harbor Freight metal cutting wheel would be the perfect width for grinding this slot. You could almost use an angle grinder to do this if you could figure out how to fixture it.
This mod should be a piece of cake for you,
I have read about enough conversion where the hole was not installed that I am not concerned about it at this time.I’m the one Brian mentioned Doug. Trying to figure out my options for getting the output shaft installed in my xt225 project motor. Do you have a plan for the spacers? Has anyone a definitive answer as to what oil passage mods are must do. Seems to be a bunch of people who have done the output shaft circlip groove and spacers, but the oil passage is rarely spoken about.
My tool post grinder shipped today, I will start on it as soon as it arrives. Since I am doing it myself I do not need all 3 at one time for cost efficiency. I will come right back here and post as soon as I am successful with the setup. Sounds good.Awesome! Well, I am sold on trying to do this via the cheaper option. Let me know where/when I can send you my shaft Doug.
I appreciate. We have exact specs of what has worked consistently for multiple folks and I will verify that info against self generated dimensions from comparing both shafts. I will advise when I an ready... Thanks for the vote of confidence. The last thing I will ever do is sell a service I am not confident in. I am slowly working toward starting up a one stop TW Shop location for the custom things I am doing to my bikes.Add me to the list. I picked up an 03 ttr225 the other day. Gonna be a slow build for me as well. Would like to keep my 200 complete, as it runs pretty well. So i need to find another tw side case, stator, flywheel, etc...
I'll buy another output shaft and send it to you to mod, if you find you are successful. Plus whatever you want for payment.
I worry about trying to find a machinist here and being able to accurately describe what i need.
Feel better about using someone who knows what this is even for, lol

Rear disc is talked about a lot but I can step on my rear brake and lock up my rear tire anytime, I do not understand the need. Please clue me in why we all want or need them, seems simple enough if I could figure out why it is needed. ???let me know when your rear wheel disc brake conversion kit is available......
