Re: Does anybody recognise this bike - Firehawk
im translating the engine mods that has the street version of the FireHawk:
THead undoubtedly the test bench , which not only reveals a peak power of 178 hp at 13,000 rpm measured to the drive wheel , but also a substantial increase in torque , with maximum value achieved at 9,000 rpm compared to 9,200 Model standard and constant up to 11,000 rpm .
Almost unbelievable even the threshold of the limiter , set at a regime almost stratospheric for a 4 -cylinder 75x54 mm : 14,200 rounds , against 11,800 rpm limiter Fireblade standard.Di this bike , which delivers about 180 hp at the wheel ( which means nearly 200 hp to the shaft )
His was a meticulous work of refinement , it started from the crankshaft and main bearings , with very accurate review of the games and the balancing operation , essential for the achievement in balancing essential for the achievement in full security regimes so high . On the cylinder head they have been replaced camshafts with other original Motopower that ensure a most raised ( 9.1 mm instead of 8.7 mm ) at the exhaust.
The compression ratio is increased to 12.5: 1 with the Pistons series, but a significant performance increase is also due to the change in the system of induction air to the air-box, consisting of two double pipes that led to the modification of the fairing. Not being able to get from Honda access codes to the system of injection / ignition, Savory has kept the hardware standard, but adopted a programmable control unit built in England by Race Tech Developments, one of the many companies closely related to the world of Formula 1.
The motor, thus enhanced, is mounted on the frame of the series; the standard fork, a Showa fork with 43 mm, is equipped with fully adjustable damping system Penske, while on the drive wheel suspension pro-link modified need a WP monoshock racing. OZ wheels forged, built in Italy designed Motopower, can save 1.7 kg each to the wheels as standard. The total weight of the motorcycle is 166 kg.
To reduce the gyroscopic effect of the standard discs of 300 mm, the front brake has been replaced with two pairs of Beringer discs of 210 mm with four-piston calipers.
