Trivia .....

Post  gus on Mon 10 Jan 2011, 1:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

Seems like a complicated way to get power to the front wheel. I would imagine there would be quite some power loss through all that.

Notice it was chained back to hold it in place during the burnout

Yamaha Stunt Bikes

Post  Re-Cycled on Sun 14 Jun 2015, 6:33 pm

I thought you guys might be interested in these stunt bikes (MT-09) I wonder why they need such strong back brakes.
Also the one closest to the camera is turbo charged, couldn't see enough detail to be sure about the other one.

That's an awesome set up on the rear brake. Std rear caliper actuated by the pedal and what looks like a pair of fronts actuated from the handle bars. 
For what purpose, I have no idea, apart from locking up the rear.

The actuator for the rear brake on the handle bars is so they can do wheelies whilst standing on the seat or tail section and control the rear so as not to flip or when they sit on the handle bars and dangle the feet over the front forks, they can then do a wheelie and control it against flipping also.
Pretty ingenious all the little mods they do to stunt bikes.
You'd hate to ride them on your normal weekend scratching road though.

On another thread a while ago on here, someone had mentioned the speed of the 250 MotoGP bikes would be pushing a Bandit. I thought surely not - size must win every time.
How wrong I was!
I went up Mt Stuart here in Townsville with a young mate from work on the weekend, he was riding his kawasaki 300 something.
What an eyeopener to speed, control, agility and having fun on a small cc bike on twisting roads!
Learning for he day was its not always about number of CCs.

No doubt, but I was surprised at the fun this young fella was having on a 300 cc bike.

My last bike was a GS500F and I much faster thought the Reefton and Black spurs than I was when I first got the bandit. Better now of course, but I enjoyed more the lighter handling of the smaller bike

Was it one of the new ninja 300`s?

I would have no doubt at all, that it would annihilate a Bandit through twisties.

They`re two different bikes. One is a lounge chair, and the other is more sport orientated, albeit, still a budget bike.

Once you have terminal velocity for a given road, the nature of the ninja will/should win outright on handling in twisties, as it will/should, carry more corner speed.

Scenario in hand:(although these are purpose built race cars)    Aussie Race Cars vs V8 Super Cars
                            
 Aussie races,   weight 450kg @ 125BHP
 V8 Supercars, weight 1400kg @ 600-650 BHP

V8, has a lot more power, but in "some corners", the Aussie cars are quicker due to geometry, and power to weight ratio.

Then on another note, look at 250cc Super Karts, and these things are astonishingly quicker again, on "some corners" over the aforementioned vehicles.  In a straight line, wouldn`t stand a chance.

I think a lot of that reduction in weight, was due to bowel movements.

I don't think Oz has ever had 100 tanks. The previous thing we had was well known to be a koala (never to be exported) and the new thing is no better
