I would rather blue print and balance an engine before anything. that's worth about 10 rwhp.

you totally may. i am catching up on finances finally, so im not too far from doing track days. (and now i will every monday off...YESSS!!!!)

loser has to buy the winner a cookie of his choosing from the subway next to sharpstown cycle gear. what do you say? just gimme a couple months.

this bike does 140 tops, but it gets there hella fast. i wanna know its quarter times too!

but um...back on topic...

so what all is involved in a blueprint and balance? how long does it take...how much $ does it cost? any disadvantages?

Component balancing
In order to achieve the inherent balance of any engine configuration, the balancing masses must be matched. In most engines, some individual components are matched as a set. Exactly which components are matched is part of the design of the engine.

For example, pistons are often matched, and must be replaced as a set to preserve the engine balance. Less commonly, a piston may be matched to its connecting rod, the two being machined as an assembly to tighter tolerances than either alone.

Component balancing is not restricted to considerations of mechanical balance. It is vital, for example, that the compression ratio and valve timing of each cylinder should be closely matched, for optimum balance and performance. Many components affect this balance.


Blueprinting
Blueprinting is the remachining of components to tighter tolerances to achieve better balance.

Ideally, blueprinting is performed on components removed from the production line before normal balancing and finishing. If finished components are blueprinted, there is the risk that the further removal of material will weaken the component. However, lightening components is generally an advantage in itself provided balance and adequate strength are both maintained, and more precise machining will in general strengthen a part by removing stress points, so in many cases performance tuners are able to work with finished components

i know. and that sucks your ride got jacked, and trust me i would totally help you beat the 's who took it, without a second thought.

but why'd you get the s2000 when you coulda got a bike and not quite as nice car instead? im not going to knock you for it, to each his own, but i just dont understand.

if i was without a bike, i would rather get a ninja 250 before anything else if thats all i could get. thats just me though...

i wanted to get a bike right away, but then i realized i needed to get a car for graduaton, so i did, i got a really good deal and i couldnt pass it up., originally i wa gonna buy this turbo prelude for 14.5, and another gixx for another 5k.......but realistically, i needed a car first. i'm buying a townhouse in a few months, and the bike will come, it does suck only being able to ride the birtbike though...

i borrow my friends bikes from time to time, but its not the same.

ok, well it isnt related to my bike. i am asking about for bikes in general, new and old. now that we have that covered, would you care to discuss any knowledge or experience you might have with working on bike engines? id really appreciate hearing about it and having a discusion instead of whatever.

i have a penske triple clicker rear shock, ohlins steering dampener, and leuman (sp?) engineering in the front forks. i have a full Yoshimura race exhaust, Titanium from the headers all the way to the CF Ride Smart-3 can.



correct?? that OUT DATED SUSPENSION IS NOT BETTER THEN WHAT COMES ON A STOCK BIKE CAUSE THE NEW ZX10 COMES STOCK WITH ADJUSTIBLE OHLINS! im glad your working at stubbs sw,cause you wouldn't last at telephone
What ZX10 comes with adjustable ohlins suspension? don't throw out worthless, unfounded information. He is partially correct though, the ZX10 does come with adjustable Ohlins. . . . .damper that is. Stock Kawi suspension is far from tuned/built suspension. and ohlins is not stock on a ZX10.
