    triple REV questions
    Posted by LittleboyBlueRoom on Monday, November 09, 2009 6:37 PM

    i've been looking at all of these triple kits for rev's and i want to build something with a triple. i am familliar with ski doo and the rev chassis. currently i have a bare 800 chassis that was an X package. i plan on building it ground up, with a 600 or 700 triple (you "big guys" can have your stator eating 809's lol!)  this thing will be a trail sled so having anything over 150hp is a waste for a 140 pound guy like me. it'll be fast enough! :)   anyways i dont want to run one of these aftermarket overpriced kits, so i'm going to build my own. if anyone has any pointers before i start, let me know! pipes will be built custom as an afterthought, so engine angle isnt a real issue here. i was thinking of starting with a rev motor plate and aligning everything as needed from there. any pointers help. thanks!

    questions thus far include:

     

    will i be best off running a whole CKIII wiring harness since that's what the engine is going to be coming out of?

     

    if i run that harness, am i stuck using the older style tachometer and speedo?

     

    the pipes will be custom and i'll probably be using the stock carbs for now, with K&N filters and filter socks.  where do i get a throttle cable that will be long enough for this chassis with the 440 bar riser?

     

    anyone with a triple rev that can help will be very beneficial, as problems will arise in the build. thanks in advance for the help!

    Sorry you think the kits are over priced.... Bondi's kit comes with custom built and proven parts,with tec support... a kit just sold on ebay for just over $800 with pipes.... I used custom Crankshop pipes,less rpm than Jaws... just not a jaws fan.... I used some ck3 wiring,RER ,electric,start,etc... and used the electric rev gauges... as far as the stator,I believe all the triples shared the same stators.... lol newer 440 gauges use ac power ,I believe... might make it simpler... Also might be simpler to go with single exhaust...

    i am having a set of pipes built by a friend. triples use the same stator but the 809 coils are different and draw more power more demand on the stator which burns them out faster. bondi kits are nice as hell but i'm handy enough to make my own setup so thats how i'm going for it. it'll be nice. i don't plan on running electric start or RER i'm small but not a girl i can pull it over, and i like to use a wound secondary setup i guess its personal preference. i'll be coming to ya when i get to bumps in the road though! soon as i get the powerplant and start getting everything placed i'll be coming to you. :) thanks for the reply

     an 800ho or 800r will make more power and weigh less setup for trail...

    I agree. Unless you use an 809, what is the point. To pull out a 140hp twin and replace it with a 140hp triple doesn't make sense. I have built a few triple Rev's. It is a lot of work.
