MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


CONT: #2, there's no way in hell, Honda's ever going to SELL a factory engine per the original spirit of the OC. if this were going to happen, to whom should i make out the check...? so this means were back to the tried and true "satellite" system/pricing structure we've been using for years. Honda Boffins aren't going to bother trying to reinvent a wheel that they THEMSELVES already invented. this is the sorta thing that drives engineers to drink. and lastly... #3, the OC is a sick joke. s1 (aka Lord Vader) has spoken.

MotoGP » 'Late' debut for 2015 Ducati


re: "It's difficult to tell you in a few words what we have to do” louie baby, it's just you and me talking here. tell the truth, you're going to re-experiment with "screamers" aren't you...? right now the 2014 bike represents a "hybrid" of the best elements of both the Yam and the Honda. big bang and aero of the M1, but with the engine and chassis confab of the 213. you ain't fooling anybody, i see what you did there. however, listening to the bikes fresh at Indy I got reminded, despite running Bologna's 90V, what firing order Honda is ACTUALLY using (duh)... going by leading the 213 SHRIEKS..!!! (all highs, ZERO low frequencies) going by chasing the D16 BURBLES...!!! (mid range notes) going by bring up the rear the M1 THUMPS...!!! (electro bass/kick drum) translation: sort the screamer, and it won't be long before you're giving Marcus "what fer". you're welcome. btw, that's a "freebie". any more help better be followed up by a 7 digit check with my name on it.

re: "nowhere does it say they are providing full factory bikes, they are providing this years factory engines" gentlemen gentlemen, lets settle down. the upgraded bikes will likely not be "engine" upgrades as implied, but simply whole satellite bikes the likes of which Bauti/Bradl are already using. the kit known as the RCV will go away...? or maybe even morph into homologation for WSB and this promised production special...? (yes, J-Rae may yet dance the Jig) why do I say this...? 3 reasons. #1, the pneumatic valve top ends of the factory engines are nitrogen fired. this compressed inert gas requires a reservoir. there is no on-board compressor/generator like what an airbrake equipped lorry might have (think american 18-wheelers). it's what's known as a "total loss" system. when the charge is depleted or the pressure drops below a threshold, the bike/car (for safety) simply stops running as the valves can no longer follow the cam profiles.

CONT: don't know exactly what they're doing now, but the early days, the frame hollows were used as the reservoir. and since we haven't seen anything in 10 years that looks like giant C02 cartridges for paintball guns laying around...? it would seem they are still using this system. unlike an F1 car, it's not like grandprix bikes have a hell of lot options for placement of a separate tank. Given that the RCV's were built with spring valves and the intent of being sold off...? there would've been no need to fit them with anything more than a basic frame based off of maybe, what they first used in '07. the modern factory/satellite frames have surely been optimised for this dual role of handling and gas storage. you either want to have the gas pressure ASSIST with handling in some way...? or you'd want to design them so the internal gas pressure had as little effect as possible on handling (neutral).
