HiThe large capacity(cc) is a trend in the newer sports bikes.I think it is just a horsepower war in the go faster crowd.Jeri
Beans. Different kinds of beans, chili, lots of cumin and spices, onions and fatback, oil and veinegar- still beans. Ever wonder why these bikes keep getting bigger, but not faster? Because the average motorcycle consumer is stupid as a bean. Weather it's a Harley or a Star- these bikes should be capable of twice the speed.
I think the power requirement for overcoming air resistance goes up with the square of the speed. So you would need close on 200 hp for 200 mph, i.e. four times the amount needed to reach 100 mphAlso, there are horses and horses! Some of the horses in 1980s Japanese bikes were definitely on the coltish side of full grown. They would tell you there were 67 of them - or whatever - but your motorcycle would be no faster than a Bonneville with 50 British ones.
Question: Why are some beemers called 'oil heads'? Are the heads oil cooled?The fairings on the Cafe racer featured in the CMW catalog seem very moderate and quite nice to me. I wonder what they wiegh. Then we have Ace's newly introduced oil cooler - wonder how much cooling that is able to do.So we could add fairings and liquid cooling and make our bikes real 21st century - right?Well, at the speeds I drive at, it is probably overkill. But then I am still thinking of a bit of fairing, like adding some leg fairings to the front engine crash bar, and a bit of a windshield. Have to wait on tha ' till I finish other projects, but worth thinking about.
