Did you get a weight on those ROCS clamps with bar mounts? It would be interesting to see how they compare to ours. If you have them handy, can you throw them on a scale? Clamps, all bolts, lower bearing (no race), and bar mounts all in one go would ... more »

To be clear, this is a fairly complicated system to implement. No one will have a full design ready for competition use in a couple of forum posts, nor is anyone proposing one (I would hope). Just posting the general idea of how it might work...

Added reply in a thread Jets Honda rear wheel 1/19/2021 10:01 AM

Yep, that would be an added complication. An ideal system would look at both wheel speeds, engine rpm, an accelerometer, etc. And to the idea of GPS, the engineers could program things into it like the start straight, jump locations, whoop sections, ... more »

We used essentially this same system 16 years ago for our college FSAE car (small scale formula style racecar). The main difference is we also measured front wheel speed as our comparison, so any clutch slip doesn't factor in. At ~10% wheel slip (front ... more »

The real answer is: It depends. If you've worn through the stock coating, you can "fix" it by getting it recoated. But then it won't be as smooth or as even of a bore. The proper solution is to get a new shock body. "Hard coating" can mean a few things. ... more »

We've got a few sets laying around. Are you looking for stock, coated a particular color, something really fancy, something really inexpensive?

I don't know much about Ohlins specifically, so I'm not much further help. That pricing doesn't sound unreasonable, though. You will always be able to find cheaper or more expensive, but you'll be best in the long run finding a company with a lot of ... more »

The DLC looks to be wearing off. It won't cause any issues other than a slight drop in performance. You can get it stripped and recoated (both lower tubes) for about $700 or so. Or you could just ride it, it will be fine and won't hurt the seals at all. ... more »

Wow, it's been over two years since this started! And the bike is still sitting in pieces in the office... 2020 has been a crazy year, and that's really screwed up progress on this project bike. 2021 will change that and I'm hoping to wrap this up in

It's not all about weight. Yes, weight is extremely important, but so is performance and reliability. It's all about finishing the race first, and that takes a balance of everything. I know that a blue factory 450 is about 10 lbs less than stock.

The Xtrig clamps are basically machined copies of stock clamps (see https://luxonmx.com/technology.html), with two main changes: 1) They split the clamps, which reduces bushing binding in the forks. See https://luxonmx.com/blog-luxon-split-triple-clamps-flex-advantage.html ... more »
