Default Re: You'll drive yourself crazy

I'm trying to go easy on him because he's been on his best behavior lately. However, he's starting to reply to himself and post the same thing in multiple spots.



On the bright side, at least it's motorcycle related!



Would Michael Moore be faster on a ZX6 or a Buell?

Default Thanks for the honest rider's log. A few editorial comments...

You state that after reducing the oil level the bike seemed even quicker, but say that the 3rd gear 60mph-80mph roll-on time is 2.5 seconds, which is a half second slower than the 2 seconds stated earlier.



You also state that the torque before and after race kit is 72 FT-LBs and at the same engine speed (rpm), but the factory dyno chart to which you refer shows stock torque of about 77 FT-LBs at 6,200 rpm while the race kit torque of 82 FT-LBs hits at 5,400 rpm.



The race kit certainly made a huge difference yielding an additional 10 rwhp through a significant portion of the upper mid portion of the rev range.



I want an XB12R!!!

Nice job, GB. As you know, I'm a fan of the XB12. Good to hear it's holding up its end of the bargain.

Hey Nplateau, I'm with you on this one. Rags like FHM pander to poseurs, and they didn't pick my BMW flat twin (Sean would call it a 180 degree v twin) either. BTW I like both the 500 and 250 Kawasaki twins. VWW

What in the blue hell would you know about a real man? For cryin out loud, you live in a city that made latte sipping nancyboys famous.



Hey.. enjoy your work tomarrow... I'll be in the shop making my son a toddler bed. Poplar.. medium stain... it'll be nice.



I may handload some .308 too. 32.2 grains of IMR 3031.. cci 200 primer... Speer HPBT.. .5 inch groups at 100 yards. Not bad eh?

4VWW says: "(Sean would call it a 180 degree v twin)"



I would? I've never considered myself "Geometrically Challenged". The post you are refering to indicates that I was speaking of "others" on the 180° twin topic.

Default Re: Numbers don't lie, but KP does

The Kawasaki WILL NOT go 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, when the rider simply rolls-on the throttle. Not from 5,000RPM and not even from 9,000RPM. That's a simple fact. -Sean

Default Re: Twins for Dummies and MO editors

I said "twin", not V-twin.



Speaking of twins, why don't you go back and re-read my posting where you claim that I stated a horizontally opposed engine was a V-twin. If you can comprehend it, you will notice that I did NOT say that I considered horizontally opposed twins to be V-twins, I simply stated that some "Geometrically Challenged" people have called them 180° V-twins. I even went so far as to say that in reality a 180° would equal a straight line. Get your facts straight, or go home. -Sean
