Trans Am Update – New Headers – Cammed Lopey Idle and Rev

 

We just thought you might like to hear a clip of the Trans Am idling and revving. After Jordan’s accident, he had to replace the exhaust on the Trans Am. Now, the car has Hedman long tube headers, dual 3″ Hedman X-tension pipes, Jones Full Boar mufflers ( Flowmaster Super 10 copies), and 3″ turndowns. Overall, we’re pretty happy with the sound now. Jordan also put on a different hood since the last video. He still has some modifications to make to it, but it’ll work just fine. When the snow melts, we’ll get it out on the road and do a driving video. Thanks for watching!

 

Bending Headers with Oxy Propane Torch at Ritter Cycle Racing

 

Jordan was having some fitment issues with his new headers for the Trans Am. They need a bit of persuading with the torch, so we went to see our buddy Rick Ritter. Once again, Rick helped get Jordan back on the road again. Thanks again Rick!

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part One

This is the first part in a series of videos, where we will resurrect this old Polaris ATV. This particular quad was built as a prototype for Ritter Cycle Racing’s stroker kits. It’s appears to be a Polaris 350L, but it’s actually powered by a 409cc Two-stroke stroker engine. This really is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Over the next few weeks, we plan to bring it back to life and even transform it into more of a sleeper. Then hopefully we’ll lure in some unexpected victims for a little drag racing action. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1972 Kawasaki H2 Mach IV Two-stroke Triple

I thought you might like a look at this nicely restored 1972 Kawasaki H2 triple. This one has been modified a bit with some custom port work by Ritter Cycle Racing and some aftermarket expansion chambers. As you can see, it looks and runs great. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Rick Ritter is one of the best machinists and engine builders around. He opened Ritter Cycle Racing in St. Jacob, IL, in 1984. Now, after over 30 years in business, he’s still going strong.
