I think he wants a REAL engineer. You know, one who can cut and paste the most articles about LaPlace from Wikipedia.

PLEASE don't remind me. I should be on the road right now. I'm on hold because of the potential for a job that requires a lot of travel, and I don't want to be out there if the offer comes in. Grumble grumble. Plus I need a new tire. Stupid ZX14 squared of the rear in 1500 miles, and it'll be done by 2000 I'm sure. I'm going to replace it with an OEM BT-014, but I'm thinking of going to a Diablo Strada or the new dual compound Pilot Road 2CT when it's time for a new set.



I'm wondering if the bike will be ok. I mean, if you can put these on an FJR1300, then the ZX shold be good too right? It's not like I'm drag racing the thing. Yet.

AHA! That is the answer I'm looking for. A nice little demo we can do at home. Thank you!

i think your talking about counter steer.. i was trying not to touch that.. its a completely diffenet set of forces and much more complicated.. and you dont even really need to counter steer if you can get enough of a weight shift to lean it.



i still don't know how to describe in words the forces that make counter steer work.. about as close as i can get is when a wheel is spinning it generates a gyroscopic force. if you rotate that wheel to the left or right that force will push on the axle in the other direction.. this pushes the bike into a lean which turns the bike. WHY gyroscopic forces behave and react the way they do is something I'm still trying to learn



counter steer isn't REQUIRED but the amount of force you would have to generate to push the bike into a lean at speed would be pretty impressive. why fight the gyro's when they are more then happy to do the work for you?
