Just make the whole thing out of carbon...

Anonymous, 03 March 2000 00:00

IF there’s one material everyone wants it’s carbon-fibre. Thousands of us deck out our machines with carbon fairings, huggers and even stick-on bits to stop the key scratching the dash. Some people go the whole hog and build entire bikes from the stuff.There’s no doubt that if you want to make a component as strong and light as possible, then ...

Why everyone is mad for Screamers

Anonymous, 01 March 2000 00:00

HONDA’S new GP 500 rider Loris Capirossi said in last week’s MCN he opted for a Screamer engine because it was easier on tyres. Traditionally, it’s the Big Bang engine Mick Doohan started using in 1992 which was thought to give rubber its best chance of survival.Doohan opted for it on his NSR500 because it cut wheelspin to give smooth ...

Just like you, it has grown up

Anonymous, 25 February 2000 00:00

THE brutal lines of the GS12000SS hark back to the days when bikes were all about wobbling around corners and laying down horsepower on the straights.We’ve already had 1970s retros such as the Zephyr 1100, and 1960s retros like the new Triumph Bonnie. Now there’s this a machine designed to look just like a GSX-R1100 from the mid-1980s.But don’t dig ...

More than just a length of plumbing with a can on the end

Anonymous, 18 February 2000 00:00

LOOK at any four-cylinder sports bike and you’ve got four lengths of pipe and a big can at the end to keep things quiet. There you go, one exhaust, job done... well, not quite.Bung any old set of tubes on a four-cylinder bike and it’d run, only it might not run very well, while the chances of getting the most ...

Just another R1? Er, no actually

Anonymous, 18 February 2000 00:00

WHAT’S in a name? Plenty, actually. And in certain cases lots of cred, respect and prestige. Do a bit of serious name-dropping and your rank can be instantly elevated. Certain names are real status symbols and are the fastest and easiest way to rise above the masses. Mention you’ve got an MV and you’ll be immediately considered as an affluent ...

Tyres: Moulded around the way you ride

Anonymous, 11 February 2000 00:00

FOR things which started life dripping out of a tree in some distant, tropical rainforest, tyres have achieved a pretty significant role in all our lives. We all moan when they burst, we all moan when we have to shell out a couple of hundred quid to replace them, but just think what life would be like without them. They’re ...

Why it’s worth shelling out on a shock

Anonymous, 04 February 2000 00:00

IF you’re going to make any improvements to your bike, chances are the first things on your list are an aftermarket exhaust, Dynojet kit and K&N filter. These will sharpen the throttle response, fill out the mid-range and put right the compromises that manufacturers are forced to make to pass emissions laws.You’ll be thinking about uprating the chassis soon after, ...

Been left in the dark by UK visor laws? You’re not the only one

Anonymous, 01 February 2000 00:00

IF the rain’s beating down or you’re fighting against a 100mph wind, there’s one safety device you can’t do without. It’s called a visor. They come in all shapes and sizes and all kinds of colours and tints, but all do the same job of protecting us from whatever the weather or road can throw at us. Visors now come ...

The father of modern sports bikes

Anonymous, 21 January 2000 00:00

THERE is one man among Honda’s team at the all-important launch of the FireBlade for whom the bowing goes on longer and deeper than any other. When any Japanese technician goes near him they speak in the hushed tones of reverent respect.If you should ever be lucky enough to bump into him you could do worse than bow deeply, too. ...

Stop and think about your brakes

Anonymous, 21 January 2000 00:00

THE biking moments most likely to stick in your mind more vividly than any other probably don’t involve hundreds of horsepower, or blue lights in the mirror. The ones that really stay with you are the times when you ended up in a situation where your brakes didn’t seem enough.Horsepower can produce a rush, but a front brake lever squishing ...
