I am not knocking the R1 by any means and respect anyone who can/did the swap...

However, I want 4wd, reverse (real reverse), and CVT....

So does this motor have a CVT or not...???

General...when you get there pick one up for me too...

Also...if these motors are made here in the USA I'll take one over a bigger, better, motor made in Japan...

Not too sure about the rest of the Chino but not going to bash them either...

We need pics of all the angles of that motor and all the details...

Downloadable pdf for shop level service manual...???

Parts breakdown...???

How is the driveline set up...???

With the double ohc I assume the valve tappets are adjusted with shims...yes/no...???

Is there an existing turbo for it...

How much will it cost...

Are crated motors for sale...

Also that picture shows dual exhaust ports so I just want to verify that picture is the v-twin and not a picture of a v-four...
The transmission is going to be a 3 speed auto with manual shift paddles in front of the steering wheel. Leave it fully auto, or go clutchless manual, your choice.

The ECU is programmable. I am told it will go to 125hp or more. No turbo yet, but as soon as I get one in the store, I will begin working on one.

The Ruesch Panther 1000 MSRP is $15,900 with the Baja suspension. The Baja suspension is 8" over with 17" travel in the front, 15.5" in the rear.

Don't know about the motors, probably not available crated for a while. The photo shown is the V-twin. Two exhaust valves per cylinder, so you get two ports.

I don't think it will have a CVT.

Don't know yet. I've been told drive belt between the engine and transfer case. I think they should put a CVT there, plus the three speed auto. Then they have drive shafts to the differentials.

I would assume that's the case, but don't know yet.

The clutchless auto seems like it COULD be a good compromise...just depends on how well it is made and works...

If the drive belt is exposed that will be problem...if it's sealed it should be fine...

These guys seem to be doing things the right way with USA assy and if that motor is made here in the USA that puts em more or less on par with the Japs imo and possibly ahead...overall quality not withstanding...there you get what you pay for...simple as that...

My sentiment is that I hate buying Japanese as I still remember Pearl Harbor...being anti-communist, anti-slave labor, and not wanting to own junk in addition to not wanting to loose out to the Chinese in war or trade...I don't like the idea of buying imports period...

I just wish we could always get what we want made here but it just ain't the way it is so I say give the guys who earn a living assembling and selling these things and the people who buy them here in the US a break...
