Two strokes use air. No oil filters there - Oil screen. I agree if you run in an extremely dirty surroundings (off-road) it would make sense to put oil filter in - hence the KTM comment. But for prototype production machine...



Obviously the reason is good enough because Honda did put one in. I just wanted to hear some comments on the issue.

Draining never completely gets everything, and the added benefit of having a filter is if you frag something, or a little piece of debris (machining burr) comes loose, it'll stop in the filter before doing damage elsewhere past the filter. All 4-strokes I know of, racing or otherwise, use filters.

Fair enough. There are so many bearing surfaces in a 4 stroke that a little bit of dirt can probably do a whole lot more damage that on a 2 stroke.

1. Who cares if he subscribes to AOL? You? Like I don't care that you subscribe to Rump Rangers Quarterly.



2. It's a TYPO!



3. What kind of EPA-lovin', tree-huggin' E.L.F. homo are you? Ozone Al Gore, 'Zat you? This site is for gearheads, who, by the way, love the sound of IC engines. Also, this is meant to be a closed-course racing bike anyway. Duh! Electric bikes? Too funny. They would suck worse than the cars do.

You are referring to production machines, GP is one off machines with services every few hundred kilometers.



Some reasons to return to the dark ages: less oil required, smaller pump for given pressure.



As I noted before, Honda decided to go with the oil filter and I am sure they have very good reasons. I just made an observation to try an get a reasonbly intelligent reply. Perhaps somebody out there knows about a previous 4 stroke race bike that ran without an oil filter.

You might think the V-four was only in the "foo-foo" VFR800 but you obviously forgot something. The RC-45 was also a V-four. Ever heard of a guy named John Konsincski(sp), Aaron Slight, Colin Edwards or Carl Fogarty ? They all rode this V-four and John K won a WSB title on it. You are uninformed and anonymous. One thing you did get right was that Honda is a BIG corporation.

What does the EPA have to do with Grand Prix racing? There are Zero (0) races run inside the EPAs jurisdiction.
