My guess is that you are experiencing a PEBCAC.

I think you are the one that needs to reevaluate your air/fuel mixture.

Default Re: You are no longer dealing with John Burns

You got it----I did say there is a problem. I now bow before you, and smack you in the nuts.



Perhaps the issue here is that your definition of 'fast' differs from everyone else's? I think you spend too much time racing every Harley rider you see. Next time you're at the local sportbike hangout, challenge a few of the R1 and GSXR1000 riders on an open road. I like 600s, and I even like my buddy that owns a ZX-6R, but he wouldn't insinuate that his bike has as much power as mine in a juvenile attempt to bolster his manhood.

You sound as if you would need help with that. I'll do it for $50.

Default Shifting a 600 is a problem?

So, what is the problem with shifting a zillion times to keep the bike on the cam? That is half the fun!

Default Re: A quote from MO about EFI

Are you an engineer/motorcyclist or do you just play one on the internet?



It looks like I have to explain this to you. An EFI will meter the fuel to maintain an air/fuel RATIO (pay attention Cook, this is a key word). The temp, pressure, and other sensor are there to determine the air portion (i.e. density) of this ratio.



Now, you must agree that air density decreases with altitude. Therefore, if the EFI maintains the same air/fuel ratio, less air equates to less fuel. Less fuel equates to...you guessed it, less power.



Mechanical carbs can't control this air/fuel mixture as accurately and will burn fuel inefficiently in off conditions. However, at a given altitude/temp, a properly tuned carb is equal to an EFI engine.

Default Stopwatch Compensator

I think the clock slows down to compensate at high altitudes, too. That way, the 1/4 mile times are the same.



I must ride a Harley.
