Hi, St Pete here. it's been a minute... i'd love to meet up take part.
I know this is really old and probably doesnt matter, but i cut the street mate stem in half, insert a bar into it, and lengthened it, welded it back together, and had the street mate front end on my derbi revolution, it was super easy and took about 30 minutes to do.
to be honest, if you are asking these questions i think you are much better suited to an alukit.
just get the a55 cases, a35 crank and transmission, and blast
if you don't want to go richer, or take compression out of it, then i would say the easiest way to avoid the temperature is to back off the temperature a little bit.the most complicated way would be to play with stinger diameter / length.
Another thing that was never used. Never installed, never had gasoline run through it.47.00 + shipping
Found this in the shop, trying to clean up things and get rid of stuff i won't use27.00 shipping
it's kind of difficult to see at first, but you can see i have a catch can mounted now for all of my fuel lines coming out of the carburetor and what not.it is just to the right of the air filter.if you loop the vents up and over the carburetor one time, it will also flood the bike out and stall the bike in the event that the float jams and the float needle doesn't close, before it star
Toroidal shape but without the arc length from the squishband to the combustion chamber spark plug hole spanning more than pi/4.
i agree with everything ken saysi also agree with everything other people sayi miss my moped sometimes
another vote for crazy wayne.
interested in the cradle frame and all that
Another vote for 927. I cut it even further with motul 800.
k type thermocouple mounted in the exhaust pipe 150mm from the piston skirt is what i have always read
that thing is beautiful, more photos please
If i could only monitor one thing at a time, i would measure coolant temperature first to figure out how much tape i need to run on the radiator, if anythen i would switch back and forth between cht and egt likely. i would tune the power jet until the egt is where it needs to be, and then make sure cht is where i want it to be, and start adding timing until the cht is at my goal. having a detona
logs show how constant the water is.. goes from say, 56 to 63 or so usually.
my bikes make the most power at 60C
remember, drag squares with speed, so you can't just do linear equations
hi.although I am not the first to do it, I was the one who wrote the wikipedia page on it, or at least, i got it pretty close, and Linda did all the markup and editing for me.couple things:1) the za50 cdi was a big help for the bike we installed it on. We used a simonini pipe for a puch along with a polini 64 for a puch as well. the inlet was a 4 petal reed block dealie, and the carburetor a vm2
Yes. They are incredible. amazing 800 dollars spent. I need to buy my own and stop borrowing my buddys
if you can find the videos you can find information on the process. it's on their website. it's basically a micro peening.the surface strength has helped pistons retain their shape when compared to non wpc pistons, according to a guy who raced his tz250 with a bunch of stuff wpc'd. it also helps with lubrication.its late here in saudi, i'll look into more stuff tomorrow
Cost is around 50 dollars a part, less for smaller parts, more for more intricate parts.I am not sure how long it takes to wear through. I will find out. I replace my piston at around 25 hours of street/6 hours of track. i'll take a look at the piston after it comes out, and take some measurements.
Mike is currently the head engineer for dai yoshihara's formula drift competition vehicle, a v8 powered Toybaru 86/BRZ. He is also rapidly expanding into the world of firearms social media with trigger iq. We talk often, even though he's old and angry, haha!Will, I have used tungsten disulfide at work but it looks like the WPC process is a good use for it as well.
The CR bikes are a lot of fun.fastest I've gone on mine is 118mph. none of these videos are of that. i need a go pro.I was in the beginning stages of designing a pipe based off of the old aprilia gp guys recommendations, but i went through my girlfriend's passing and at that point i left bikes alone for some time while i just worked getting through life. it's been six months sinc
This is not a coating, but rather a treatment.it doesn't exactly put a major dimpling into the component being treated.this is a pair of tz pistons after being treated.The dimpling that occurs is on the magnitude of microns. Supposedly you still get excellent compression and ring seal. as of right now the only drawbacks are price.i'm giving it a shot, we will see how it ends up.I have t
Yes. The nikasil would be treated as well as the piston skirt. The idea is to micro dimple the surface to increase oil retention as well as increase the strength at the surface as a result of micro relieving the surface, from what I have read into.A lot of people are using it these days. If Yamaha uses it on their customer GP bike pistons I think there is some promise behind it.
