A UK first

Recommended Posts

Motohead ( free to download )has done a UK first , all the bikes sold, all tested at the same time and done properly

 

I have taken some snap shots

 

The first to annoy Yamaha owners ( don't worry I will bag on the ktm and Suzuki lol )

Next bagging on ktm ,for some reason this shows the ktm 450 lacking in mid ,they tested the husky and it's the same ,it's not a faulty bike

Next the 250s , the ktm and husky kill it ,and the CRF is no where near as bad as other dynos ,the rmz is stuck in 2005 Screenshot_20180130-084530.png

 

The 125 ,shows the progress ktm made recently

Notice how the ktm 250 doesn't lack bottom end like most seem to think , it's got by far the most ,it's a gearing and feel problem ,not a lack of torque

The KTM 250 is shocking.  Owns the field.

The Suzuki is the most shocking.  Gets owned by the field badly.

Most people go by "feel", and therein lies the problem. You want a bike to "feel" slow! You ride it harder!!! And your not concerned/scared of the "power", so you enter corners harder/faster.

Ktm/husky shows the largest front rear weight spread prolly because of those air forks. Honda wins even with those cans lol...

What kind of mods are done to the 150?

CRF150 correct?

I see guys putting alot into those.

Wondering how much power they produce stock and then how much more after modifications were made.

Your graph doesn't seem to line up with MXA from a few years ago.

It's not mine or my buddy ,it's a UK online magazine called Moto head ,and if it was my buddy that would be stupid ,my buddy is a authorised Suzuki dealer lol

 

I know people think I live on a small island where everyone know each other ,but I didn't know about the magazine till I downloaded it

 

The beauty of this test was every bike was tested on the same Dyno on the same day ,that's unusual. Dynos read differently,my buddy SPS is a 500kg drum one ,USA use different fuel and mapping I believe .

 

Imo the motohead one looks low ,mxa one looks high to me ,no way a rmz is close to a yzf , they have only gained 0.5 hp since 2010 and it was not close to the leader then...

Vital shootout put the rmz at 35 hp ,I think thats more accurate than this bike on this days test ,Suzuki should have tested the bike before they brought it ,no one will buy one looking at that Dyno

The Yamaha EU market muffler is more restrictive than the US version.

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude? 
    • By Mongo134
      A friend of mine, BAHA, you know him, had a very good point I never thought of. All of these big $$ race purses are insured. Monster pays on insurance a percentage and should someone win the MEC as they did last night, the insurance company pays it out. 
      Now.... Had Savatgy just FUBAR'd in the sand like he should have to make the pass convincing that would be one thing. But since he was seen looking back several times to see where Tomac was at, caught slowing on camera on the backside of the track AND caught waving Tomac by to take the win.... I'm interested to see if insurance pays out or calls it a form of Insurance Fraud? 
    • By 150dirtcomber
      I could be late but in the post race interview Tomac strongly hinted he will race the GPs at some point in his career. Maybe the incentive will pass but he sounded serious about it.
