Was trying to keep it mild...

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Dope. Hadn't seen the pipe on it yet. That plastic heat shield tension has me on edge

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Got some rough dremmeling done the other day.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Got the new treats v1L Gila Reed block adapter. Ran into some issues. Working with treats on the issues and they're being awesome. The spread on the mounting bolts on a fantic C2HLKS is just slightly wider than the adapter so I dremeled it out to work but the heads of the alen bolts hit the adapter wall so I gotta grinder them down. Then the alen head are too tall for a stock Gila to fit in right (treats is taking care of that in the description so you know you need low profile bolts). The problem after that is I gotta make a 90 degree intake cause of vertical clearance issues.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

The adapter fits just perfect above the cylinder though. Need the intake to go left since the pipe is on the right (opposite of stock).

If you didn't want to make an intake you could maybe use a Malossi 360° rubber intake or a cheaper equivalent .

Be able to put your carb wherever you needed .

They look like they would keep the carb away from your frame too and as a bonus they are short with really good flow.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

try running countersunk m6 with that reed adaptor and see if the block will clear. Countersunk will also auto center it. They wont go flush into the adaptor, but they dont need to!

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Re: Fantic sprinter project

The problem with counter sunk is getting a tool in to counter sunk and counter sunk heads are wide af at that size bolt. Treats has some low profile bolts coming to me when they come in. Got a table vice the other day to help grind down the bolts I have atm. Didn't grind them down enough then nearly blew it checking them in the case again. One got super stuck for a pants shitting second. Decided to leave it alone for a bit after that.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Low profile socket head, or cheese head might do the trick.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Idk how much clearance you need but you can chuck the theads of the bolt in a drill and run it against a grinding wheel. You can take some off width and the top.

He's having clearance issues with the heads of the fasteners, NOT accessing the heads.

Re: Fantic sprinter project

Found the perfect thing to make an ignition key out of for my stock sprinter. Could fit right in the "handle" area between the tail light and the "handle" on the back of the seat. Bigg issue would be securing it well enough that it won't rattle out.
