Re: It lives

If you can increase your crankcase volume, you'll get a higher redline. It lowers the pumping losses (lowers crankcase compression). If your engine is a reed valve thing then spacing your reed valves out from the intake has the same effect. It's not massive but it all helps. An easy way to raise you...

Re: What are you Planning???

I'm still working on my M/F 100cc bike. The mighty DT100. I got the tank mounted last weekend and started work on the seat pan today. Got most of it cut and bent. A little more shaping and cutting then I can TIG it all together. Bought a tow vehicle a few weeks ago. 1995 Hilux Dual Cab 4WD Diesel. S...

Re: What are the important points for a LSR engine buildup?

I'm a newbie to this style of racing too so I'm very interested to hear the opinions of the experienced racers here. I'm running a small air cooled two stroke (100cc). The plan is to go for the revs I know the engine can handle on a circuit, minus a bit. I know it'll rev to 14,000RPM all day at the ...

I read recently that Goodyear was developing a rear LSR tyre for motorcycles. Presumably they'll do a front as well.
