Thumbs down Got the akro, but missing parts

Well, UPS sure did a great job destroying the box on the way here. 3 springs and the clamp are missing. I filed a claim through UPS but i doubt they will do anything about it. Anyone know how UPS handles damaged/missing packages?
Im still glad its here.
thanks

Is tamestang an idiot?

" V-twins IMO are junk. I'm not forcing you accept it but theres not any of them out there that can hand with the inline motors so they are junk. "


Have you ever seen the vance and hines pro stock v twin. Did you know they had to add 75 lbs to that "junk" because the newly developed v twin motor made the bike TOO fast?

Anyone else have opinions on the subject? And why did you lock the post?

did you know the current pro-stock harley is 3000 cc's, the same size as an F1 and IRL engine with fuel injection and 4 valves per cylinder. the jap bikes are 1375 with 2 valve heads with carburetors. harleys are shit and always will be, but what do you expect when you take 2 cylinders from a 9 cylinder pratt and whitney radial.

lol...i think onebadwagon locked it because the shit talking was gonna get out of hand. and although i agree with the title of this thread, it will probably get deleted. lol...funny thread though.

as far as vtwins, i think we wll know they are not "junk". tamestang preaches about the twisties. well, some of the best rated bikes for twisties are buells, made by harley davidson. and do you know what they are powered by ?

Yea, the harley is a big motor. But you are also working with 2 cyls, and 2 valves per cyl. Of course the cyls and valves and everything are going to be alot bigger. Do you know the jap engines are also roller bearing motors with pro stock cyl heads just as big as the harley. To each his own. You really can't compare apples to oranges. But with the right technology, twins are far from junk.

the problem is the rules by nhra have it in such favor for harley it would be impossible for the harley to loose. The harley has 4 valves per cylinder while the jap bike uses the old KZ head layout that allan johnson is building out of billet, go figure a $7K dollar billet 2 valve motorcycle head. As far as the roller cranks, they both have them, yet due to the layout the harley again has the advantage in friction, 1 needle rod bearing and only two needle main bearings where the inline jap stuff has 5 needle mains and 4 needle rods. I wish the japanese would care enough to build a v-twin under the current pro-stock rules and show harley what they aren't in the engineering world.

THe head is already made of billet. Listen, you can't really compare 2 cyl's to 4 cyls, one has 2, one has 4 LMAO. Of course their are differences, so the harleys got the advantage in friction but the 1375cc oil cooled's has 2 more pistons! lol They are trying to make the class even. This is why they stacked on 75 lbs when screamin eagle went a 7.01. Everyone thought a harley could never compete in pro stock, then they built a billet motor and busted everyones ass so they changed the rules to make it even. Thats pro STOCK racing for ya.

The harley is 3000 cc's what part of that is fair with 1375 for the jap engines? two pistons, four pistons, who cares, the harley is a giant exercise in ineffeciency. I mean seriously we have 83 cubic inch engines with carbs and two valves verses 183 cubic inch engines with fuel injection and 4 valves per cylinder.

ok, so argue against the RC51, SV1000 and TLR. Hell, argue against a 999...

It takes over twice the motor for a harlety to beat the jap inlines. But that makes me an idiot cause I'd rather have a jap inline motor thats half the size that goes just as fast.

Bare in mind that just because a Harley has a V-Twin doesn't mean it's the SAME EXACT MOTOR that's in the TLR or an RC51.

I like both. Honestly though. I'd prefer an in-line to run the twisties and for general "fun-riding". For bike nights and trips, I'd like a sporty V-twin, such as Buell, TLR, RC51 or SV-1000 with fairings and other stuff.

?
They were allowed to be 575 lbs in the beginning because even at 160 CI and w/FI they were unable to compete.After they finally got the big monster motor figured out, they added 40 lbs to make them 615 total compared to the 80 CI inline motors total weight of 600 lbs.

The rules were bought by V-H and HD. Everybody knows it.

Inlines are forced to run stock cases and cylinder spacing. That makes it almost impossible for the new inlines like the Busa or the 12 to ever be an option. Muzzy and Kawasaki put a ton of money into the ZX12 new generation motor PSB. They got no help in the form of rules like the HD's got.The twins gets to run billet cases with whatever spacing they want to clear the 5" pistons. They get to run FI as well. Its a sham.

If the rules were even in the same zip code the twins wouldnt stand a chance.

I think they are crap. Case in point...the most powerful v-twin on the market cant even come close to the performance of a GSXR600. At more than twice the price I might add.

Now that HD got the NHRA rules they wanted and they have the national record and the championship last year...
I formally invite them to go ahead and get into the performance bike market. Maybe if they me offered something fast I wouldnt be such a hater.

what is this an argument for, where do these engines compete in a class where 4 cylinders are allowed to be twice their displacement? And a modern 90 degree v-twin will kill the stupid harley 62 degree firing order thing with all else being equal. the harley layout and sound came from this firing order which is what they had when they removed the other 7 cylinders from the radial airplane engine from WWI.

Oh yeah, As far as the v-twin Jap bikes.. they are marginally better. The only reason Japan built a twin is because of the American facination with the antique design.


NHRA and HD know that the Jap v-twin is a better design.... Thats why the NHRA rules state specifically "AMERICA v-twin Only"

I have no problems with Harleys, they are what they are and performance is not what they are marketed for. However, most big harley riders enjoy making fun of my dad's little ole' sportster, untill they can't see the tail light anymore. 80 hp in a sportster usually will get it done compaired to any of the rubber mounted big bikes. Yet by no means is it fast, a modern 600 with a plug wire unhooked will destroy it.

Thats my point exactly... For cruising they are fine.
Just dont try and tell me the are a performance design. If they were, they wouldnt need to be double the size to make the same power.

I would say the same things if NHRA decided to let 1000 CI four cylinder Fuel injected Honda Civics run in Pro-Stock (Car)

what you just said sums it all up. plain and simple. but for the rider of one style of motorcycle to call vtwins "junk" is just completely asinine...

I'm gonna have to disagree. TheTL1000R, RC51 and the Ducati's(sportbikes) will all beat the GSXR600.

And JC, the Ducati twins(sportbikes) are much more fun in the twisty's that any 4 cyclinder that I have ever ridden.

I rode the Kaw in AMA. I'm still Pro, just on a GP bike. They are much more fun than ANY other bike. 125cc, 43hp, 150 pounds and I can pass 600's, 750's and 1000's Those big bike guys love it when I come slidding underneath them in a corner

Don't have any pictures at work. Maybe I can find some later on on the computer at home.

I would have to see it to believe it. Maybe the Ducati and I heavily stress the maybe part.
If you read back I said the import twins are a little better.
Still a twin is not a good performance design. Even the people who designed it would tell you that.

I ride a Ducati 748. It's the smallest in thier sportbike lineup. I know that I can outride a GSXR600 on it. And trust me, I have pushed the Ducati, the Kawasaki's, Suzuki's and a few Honda's well past thier limits. And I can ride the Duc a lot faster. Not saying that I am the best rider by any means. But, I can push them pretty hard.
Watch some of the AMA or World superbike stuff. The Duc's place pretty high in the finish, and a lot of times they are 1st, 2nd or 3rd. And 90% of the field is on Jap bikes. So, maybe you've just had a bad experience with the twins? Or maybe you just haven't rode the right ones

We were actually talking about engines in this thread, not what ama superbike finishes where. I was talking motors, not bikes.The example being used was Drag Racing. Pro-Stock bike to be exact.
Nonetheless
I looked up the HP rating on that RC51 and its 130 hp. Thats your state of the art 1000cc 90 degree v-twin with the 4 valve head. A buck thirty at the coutershaft....
I'll pass.

They had some kind of ducati in the middle weight shootout in cycle world or something like that and it did not do that well. All the jap bikes did better. I think they also had the daytona. I dont have the mag anymore maybe someone can post those results but we were talking about engines. Not rider skill or preference.

i dont hate v twins but i cant stand the way they sound....they are slower
i raced a sv650s and it was not even a race really.....dead stop or from a roll i took him easily
but the v twins make hella torque...thats about the only upside i can think of

That is not to good for a liter bike. I bet you my bike would dyno close to the same HP as that thing to the wheel.
