Re: CBR 600 Ignition issue?

It's actually running a bit rich & we're a bit hesitant to lean it off.

CBR 600 Ignition issue?

We're dynoing a CBR600 & the pipes are glowing red. It's also down a bit on power/torque than we expected. Checking over stuff I noticed the knock sensor is there but no plug for it. Does the ECU back the timing off if there is no sensor found? Tried 2 different ECU's & slight difference only. :roll:

Re: 91 LCR front & rear spring rates

I ran a 80 kg on the front of my 94 when I had it as I'm around 100 kg meself :roll: Until I ran that spring the front it was a real bastard to steer.
Most bikes run a progressive spring on the rear.
I still have the Eibach shocks I ran in it, could be convinced to part with them.

HD front primary pulley/sprocket

G'day,
Looking for some help with our project here in Oz. I need to get a Harley big twin front primary pulley or sprocket with 10 splines to Bob Newby so he can make a pulley up for our bike. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Re: Lifting the sidecar onto stands

I use a hydraulic car engine crane that I re-positioned the wheels to lower it. Put 100 mm blocks under the tyres of the bike, roll the crane under, hoist it up & onto the stands. Footy uses a block & tackle or his forklift.

16" Classic tyres?

What is everyone using for 16" wheeled classics? I hear Dunlop has production issues. Is there anything else that works?

Re: F2 chassis dimensions

Doesn't sound too far off the mark. Is the engine as far as possible forward? What sort of rear shock/spring? If it's too soft it will squat too much & you'll get too much drive from the rear. Has someone experienced riding F2's had a ride on it? Sometimes another opinion can help sort stuff out.

Re: Yoshi EMPro advice?

It depends on the year of the engine & if it has ABC modes & you want to use it for different engine maps.

Yep, Compomotive centres. Mine had 4/4.00" bolt pattern on front/side & 4/4.50" on the rear.
