its an r1 motor. or yammie 1 litre. check the diasio site. diasio.com 150hp and like 2500lbs. supposed to be awesome. he was out doing like 3 block long burnouts with it at his shop. the thing is pretty cool. ross made the bargeboards forit and the ground effects stuff. custom airbox. custom ti exhaust. lots of shit. they run it at summit and vir. ross used to build blown mustangs and shit like that. 600+hp. hes a pretty talented dude.

i dont know what the concentric thing is. i never asked him. but that big r1 obviously has a tire/wheel combo too big for a chain. so hes making it friction drive. he builds custom swing arms for yamahas and works with yamaha on development stuff. hes a pretty cool dude. he runs an r6 with wera. did his first real race this year. hes got a gsxr that hes streetfightered. no fairing. motocross bars with his own risers. all the electrics have been moved and hidden. its pretty cool i rode it around for a while one night. definitely makes you want to do nothing but wheelies.

too bad his old shop site isnt up. he had some cool shit on there. hes our contact for the dyno. he used to own it and was dynojet certified. so he knows his shit. the cool thing is he works on old bikes too.

see mrpmotorsports.com for the place he works. they do alot of sliders and sportbike bits. and ross is a pretty good machinist. used to work for skandia as a maachinist. (jb knows all about them im sure)

thats all i got.

What about Man Chowder?

And yeah...150hp and 2500 lbs....that's close to 20 lbs/ hp....my 175 is better than that....with me on it.

150 hp and 1500 lbs...thats about typical 60's muscle car.

I'm betting the car weighs about 1200 lbs., that's getting into race car numbers.

So....what you are saying is that my eyeball guess of 1200 lbs was only 25 lbs off.

Yeah but I cheated....I used to guess the weight of peoples cars at the county fair.

BTW Joe, remedial math classes are still open....1225 lbs is not more than 1 hp / pound......it's more like 1 hp / 8 lbs.

i fuckin hate math.

dude, if you knew the week ive had. that only begins to describe it. i dont know where i got that from. im so fucking retarded.


i was thinking about using the speeding excuse my dad gave me if i was picked up by accident today. he told me to tell the cop i lost my glasses and couldnt see 3' in front of me but my long range vision was perfect. so i cant see my speedo.

now i have to go fuck up stuff on my motorcycle.

later kids
