Default Re: you

I get 80FtLbs with HD slip on mufflers, K&N filter (HD kit) and Dynojet kit(also in HD's product list).



Why does the Merch motor makes so much power? It is a 120" motor. It is the same engine HD designed in the 80's Merch used the best parts they could find, and flowed the heads. Same HD design.



I would like to find out more about the 4000fpm piston speed data you talk about. It makes sence, I just want to know more about it.



I found info about how related HP and Torqe are at:

http://www.howstuffworks.com/horsepower.htm



It reads:

You can easily convert torque to horsepower by multiplying torque by RPMs / 5252.



You guys are so smart!

I was wrong, they are related.

Um, there is actually. I'm not saying it DOES, but a Kenworth might put out 600 ft/lbs at 800 rpm and make about 60hp. That sounds a bit like a Harley...

Default Re: GSX-R1000 Dyno Run!

Sheesh, only 32000 hard miles, on an 86?? That figures out to around 2000 miles a year. Where you at, the midwest?? Got tired of working on my 86 gsxr 750, sold it, picked up an F3, have 30000 hard miles on the F3 now. Runs fine, and is LESS maintenance than the Gsxr.. As for the R1's being fast, yes they are, but it's funny how I'd consistantly PASS them at Fasttrack, on the front straight, corners, etc. Must be the superior hp of my F3. I'd say a majority of the guys that get the things can't ride them. Heck, I know one guy here that is the wheelie king, but can't toss it into a turn worth a damn.

Bingo! It's not the bike, it's the rider. I'll stick with my F3 (maybe upgrade to an F4), and keep my lower laptimes. I laugh when I see guys that can't ride upgrade the horsepower at 10K a shot to still get railed on by someone on an EX500 who can ride. For some reason, in thier minds, big horsepower means fast rider. They'll continually upgrade and think they're fast. When they should get on a SLOW bike and learn to keep corner speed up. Then they will be fast on the big bikes. As it stands, they just get in the way at track days up at willow. God I hate those guys, fast down the straights and putt putt putt in the twisty parts. Then they get insulted when you tell them not to invest in the pipe, but learn to ride first.

The poor thing spent 5 years in a storage shed, then another 5 out here in cold Cleveburg, where there's a short riding season. Plus having a wife and 2 young kids kinda puts a damper on the amount of time I have to ride. Maintenance? The only thing I've ever had to do beside oil was a set of brushes, and a new clutch when my buddy burned it up doing a burnout.

Great looking bike. I might have to start going to the nearest blood bank. This bike may not make me the next Kenny Roberts, but it will sure be nice to have one. Life is short, so you need to spoil yourself whenever you can.



I got too much riding to do to get into a pissing contest with some of these "Individuals".



Ahhhhh... California weather... This is some good ! (cough, cough...)

Default Fair enough

Not a bad case you make for these brand S beasts, after all. I don't race, don't understand why anyone else would go to the trouble and expense, and take it for given that some folks have a higher threshold of excitement than I do (and must go to lengths to feed their cravings.)



But it's easy to see why a GSXR would make a sound pick for a low-budget blunt instrument type race bike.



And when it comes down to it, I think that the most visually appealing GSXRs are the '86 models: the bluntest instruments of all. Those ones have a quasi-military purposeful gracelessness to them that I'd guess is the heart of your "ugly-but-serious" ethos.



You done give me a new outlook on them old dogs, Bubba.

Default Re: I challenge all YE DISCO SQUIDS

"don't delude yourself into thinking it makes you something special, it merely confirms that they are crap. If you want to outrun riders of my standard you'll need expert knowledge of the road or track, a top modern sportbike and the ability to use it.

As for your FZR400 challenge, it proves your inexperience of riding larger sports bikes to the limit. Obviously a light, unintimidating 400 is a lot easier to ride around a twisty short circuit than a heavier more powerful bike, that is why they make ideal learner bikes and that is exactly why you use it for circuit riding."



Is this the same discohead I was debating with in the previous posts? For one....I never said I was anything special, but just a regular man out to have a good time. As for picking an FZR400 for use on the track, its competitive racing. How many dudes do you see on the track riding big bore bikes to the limit? I dont see it anywhere, I regularly enter my bike in Junior expert 600 supersport classes and give them a good run on my "lightly" modified 400. Why did I pick the 400....because its an old bike and theres as huge aftermarket for it.....and its cheap competitive racing. Im sorry I dont have the unlimited financial resources like you to buy the latest and greatest thats available. Thats where the competitive racing is at....you wont find that in any of the heavyweight 750 SS, superbike or unlimited class. And yeah I am learning everytime I get on any bike on any day....I learn something everyday and thats what riding is for me. Unless youre riding with the reckless abandon you do on public roads as you do on the track, pushing the front tire with your spinning rear balancing the bike on your knee slider as you do this and you can leave me behind.....then you must be pretty good. ANyone can leave black marks exiting the turns in the mountains....anyone.



"On identical bikes you may or may not beat me, I don't know and neither do you, but you definitely wouldn't beat me on either a FZR1000 or FZR400"



it takes a big man to say this line....never say never. The bikes are dated, but not that dated... and yes they are much harder to ride than any modern machine, but I don't go into the gym religiously to look like a musclehead or a disco boy poser. You obviously know my answer and thats to stay in shape to ride. It takes alot of muscle and endurance to keep it in line consistantly lap after lap, for hours upon hours. Unlike alotta other people I wont and complain, "let go out again" is what I say. Anyway enough of this crap.....gotta go shovel out the driveway and bust out the bike. Perhaps I know you or even ridden with you....who knows....
