Default Re: more of the scoop on Buell

"However, in the race two bikes went out with broken clutch hubs, Mike and Rico. Inspecting the broken parts showed huge amounts of porosity, so they were just bad castings. Easy to fix."



No excuse for this one! That was the bane of the Norton Commando head (yes, 40 years ago) and the Triumph TSS when introduced in 1983. Porous castings are still a problem today???

Default Re: Buell problems discussed - Erik Buell?

I hope so. Starting a race program at Daytona is a pretty lofty goal. I think something shorter and twistier will be more to the Buells advantage.

Kenny Roberts team has Honda engines now. I haven't heard of Foggy Petronas getting Honda power.
