MotoGP » Crutchlow: If we can alter my bike we’ll get results


zeitguist: yep...dead right...why would you want the c of g that high....never could see the point....is it turning thing?
Yes/No, it's a weight transfer thing. With the CG too low you can't load up the front wheel for turning onto the corner while braking and you can't load up the rear tyre to get on the power for exit. Like everything though, CG too high isn't good either. Honda tried a low CG years ago (mid 80's??) when they put the fuel tank under their race bike and it didn't work well.

MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


AussieNSW: Does any of you guys notice the photo above with all the Honda guy's in it yet the rider that won most races for them is not in the photo and he rode in the same race,not a good look for Honda in my opinion.
The guy sin the photo are holding up 7 fingers, so I'm betting it's the 7 consecutive wins for MM and not the 100 wins for Honda they're happy with in that photo. Dani didn't need to be in it....

MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


TrueFan:
V4Poweeeer: ...
cont... JB ensured that Doohan's bike was behaving better by the mid-90s.
In Doohan's book he mentions having a blow up with JB and Honda and put it bluntly to them that the Yamaha street bikes handle better than their Honda Race bike AND that they have brakes that work. So JB needed a little nudge at the time but as history shows they did sort it out. Doohan had raced Yamaha superbikes domestically, and had signed for Suzuki for the GP's before getting out of that and going with Honda.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Top speed not the solution


TrueFan:... Ironically, when Ducati dominated WSBK, it was with less powerful bikes (916/996/998) that had higher mid-corner speed...
With the Japanese manufacturers stuck at 750cc ??? Colin Edwards and Honda showed WSBK what they could do playing Ducati's game by Ducati's rules forcing the organisers hand to allow some return to capacity parity for the 4-cyclinder machines even if they had to run restrictor plates...
