Fav YouTubers Empty Re - makes engines

Re your you tube links. Neil Hintz is a good mate of mine (major name dropping!) I was at his place last week looking at his TPI MkII engine. The biggest issue he has is that he needs to make a living in his workshop and can't work on his toys full time. But he knows so much about engines and all they encompass it's a shame someone hasn't snapped him up and put him on $250K a year just to play with engines! Perhaps KTM could have done this instead of just stealing his development ideas - Neil develops TPI engine 2013 on his YZ250 and posts on youtube and KTM "discover" TPI in 2014/15.
I reckon half the reason he knows so much is because he's blown so many up! He hasn't even ridden my XRR but to his credit as well as a Kawasaki 350 Big Horn he's also got a TT500 in his shed.

It's very obvious that Neil is a clever man! I have a CR500 and love all two strokes, after a big build on my XR I've done bugger all hours on it... The CR is now pretty sorted and a dream to ride, it has electric start and a gadget called a pulse induction on it. It was made by a bloke in the US called Ron McCord, fascinating bit of kit and I actually thought Neil would be interested it.
When the reeds snap shut the in coming air suddenly stops, compresses a bit then bounces out thru the intake/carb. This pulse intake manifold catches that rebounding charge, redirects it thru a tube (of very specific length) and back into the carby just as the reeds are opening again. It acts like a tiny supercharger and has greatly improved the CR500, it now pulls cleanly from as low as 1700rpm and I have seen 9800rpm's on the rev counter. Normally a CR is a bit crap under 2500 and run out of puff at 7000, but it tractors up any hill at idle revs and lots of over rev to save gear changes.

Fav YouTubers Empty CR & XRR

CR sounds mean. Biggest 2 banger I've ridden was an IT490 but pretty mellow power delivery. Rode Neils fuel injected Kawasaki F9 350 bighorn and that was an angry beast. He's 2 stroke through and through but especially rotary valve. He flys a gyrocopter too which runs a 700cc 2 stroke twin which he built - literally, castings and all.
I've heard of pulse injection but not aware of the details - will look it up. Do you VMX the CR? Where are you in NZ?
