350km/h :: Fastest Kawasaki....


ZX-10? ZZR1100? ZX-12R? ZZR1400? Er… no, the fastest Kawasaki in the world will have more than two wheels. Quite a few more, as a matter of fact. And unlike the ZZR1400, with its 300km/h top speed, the Kawasaki efSET (environmentally friendly Super Express Train) will be capable of hitting 350km/h!

Yes indeed, Japan already has the Shinkansen – the Bullet Train – which does about 300km/h. And now, Kawasaki Heavy Industries are working on the efSET, which will be slicker, lighter and faster. This new train, which is expected to be operational in Japan in the next five years, will be much more energy efficient, less noisy and more comfortable than any other super-train in the world.

The Kawasaki efSET is aimed at improving Japan’s existing high-speed railway system, which is already considered to be the world’s best. Hmmm… so maybe the 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa has more than just the ZZR1400 Ninja to worry about…

2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 :: Specs and pics

Source :: FasterAndFaster.Net

In the sportsbike world, the unveiling of a new Suzuki GSX-R1000, every year, is a fairly momentous occasion. Reduced weight, more power, more electronics (to safely harness all that power…), bigger/uglier exhausts and new colours (some of which can actually be quite bad). Those few things more or less sum up what we expect from new GSX-R1000s every year. And the 2009 model doesn’t disappoint.


The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 gets a lighter, more compact 999cc inline-four, which delivers more power and torque and offers enhanced throttle response across the engine’s entire rpm range. The K9 GSX-R1000 engine is now more oversquare than before, and the compression ratio has also gone up from 12.5:1 to 12.8:1.

For those who may be interested, here’s a ton of technical details: The new GSX-R1000 engine employs bigger titanium valves, forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, Iridium spark plugs (for a stronger spark, for better combustion) and Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders integrated into the crankcase, reducing friction and improving heat transfer, durability and ring seal.

New, 12-hole fuel-injectors produce a finer fuel mist for more complete combustion, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. And as before, the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of three performance settings to suit riding conditions and personal tastes. However, the switch has now been relocated on the left handlebar control module.

The cable-operated back-torque-limiting clutch makes for efficient clutch operation with superb feel, claim Suzuki. And the new Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) uses an under-engine chamber and low-slung, large-volume MotoGP-inspired titanium mufflers.

To ride, we're sure the K9 GSX-R1000 is brilliant as ever. But styling-wise, we wish Suzuki were doing something radically new...
The 2009 GSX-R1000’s wheelbase is 10mm shorter, the swingarm is 33mm longer, for improved high speed handling. The bike’s twin-spar frame is made of five cast sections, mated with an arched swingarm made of three castings and one-piece die-cast rear subframe. Big Piston Front (BPF) forks, with an endurance-race-proven design, deliver superb feedback and responsive, stable operation, and are very lightweight.

The rear shock absorber features adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping. Twin 310mm brake discs at the front, with monoblock radial-mount four-piston calipers, handle the stopping duties. And the bike rides on 17-inch cast aluminum alloy wheels, shod with 120/70 (front) and 190/50 (rear) ZR-rated rubber.

The 2009 GSX-R1000’s kerb weight is 203 kilos. And while there is no official word on the power output, we’d say there should be at least 170 rear wheel horsepower available, so you know what the performance is going to be like…! Details on pricing and availability coming soon…

How Often to Change Engine Oil In Bikes?

My OverDrive Issues...

Question :: what is the proper timing period to change engine oil?Rolling Eyes

Ans 1 :: I change it every 5000 KM or 3 months time. Now i would suggest you to get the clutch plates checked and if they need to be changed, get it done. I think your bike will be back in action.

Ans 2 ::  bro it depends on wat oil u using ..........if its normal 4t use it only for 3000 kms, semi synthetic for 5000 kms and fully synthetic for 10000 kms ...... the rates r 350 for semi and 650 for fully synthetic bro ..........


Gear Box problem in my pulsar!!

I asked question To my OverDrive Friends...

hi all... i m facing problem in gear box in my pulsar 150.(1 year old)
the gearbox make a big noise when i change gear. even when i m riding it on a road the gear box get gamed and i immediately have to change gear!! I really worry about this!! Sad Sad

i need suggestions!! any one who had experienced such a problem?? Crying or Very sad

& Some Friends Really gave good Advice.. Like...

  • Considering its a year old, im assuming its the UG3 version. Check your clutch and clutch plates, if replacing get the whole set including the metal plates changed. For the 180 it comes to around 800+ so im assuming more or less the same for the 150.

  • Regarding the oil change, bajaj recommends oil changes at 5000 km intervals. I wouldn't stick to that though. Best option is to go for the normal semi oil and change at 2000 km intervals, bajaj isn't exactly renowned for their component quality, so safer the better.

  • Gearbox problems have long since plagued the pulsars, and this could be that, however, if you're having hard gear shifts, it would also be worthwhile to check the gear shifter itself. My bike had a similar problem and apparently the gear shifter shaft wore out after 20k kms. So that is an avenue to be checked as well.

  • Regarding where to get it serviced, if it is at a local mech, i would suggest you go to one who does pulsars on a regular basis. Bajaj changes a lot of things with each and every new edition of the pular and unless the guy actually has experience with said model, it might end up rather badly. Since you mention it is only a year old, the service center would be your best option, get it checked there.

  • check the clutch plates and steel plates ... and follow the oil regime for good results .........
  • Checked oil ? How often do you change it ? Anyways I would also check my clutch plates if i were you...


what should be the stnadard RPM in neutral?

I asked Question to my OverDrive Friends & i got these answers...

  • Idlying at neutral should be at 1500 rpm give and take a few hundreds
  • the ideal IDLING as it is called should b around 1500
  • Generally this depens upon bike to bike.
    Keep it above 1000 or atleast 1000 rpm. But dont cross the 1500 mark.
    Also note that when you are setting the idling rpm, warm the engine first.

KTM and Bajaj :: on new bikes

Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi.
With a big presence in Europe, and an exciting, off-beat lineup of sportsbikes, supermotards, off-roaders and dual-purpose machines, KTM are now looking at expanding in the second-largest motorcycle market in the world – India. The Austrian company will be working with Bajaj (with sales of 2.38 million motorcycles in 2006-07, Bajaj Auto are India’s second-largest two-wheeler company…), on the development of new engine and vehicle platforms.

Cagiva’s 500 GP racer

Source :: FasterAndFaster.Net
The Cagiva name is pretty much in the doldrums these days and a new Mito 500 seems to be the only ray of hope for the once-great Italian company. But back in the early-1990s, things were very different – Cagiva were actually going head to head against the Japanese in the 500cc class, in motorcycle grand prix racing.

With Americans John Kocinski and four-time 500cc world champ Eddie Lawson riding Cagiva 500s – officially called the Cagiva C593 – the Italian machines got a few wins and podium finishes, which was not too bad given the fact that Cagiva were still a tiny little operation compared with the might of the Japanese companies.


Cagiva were present in 500cc GP racing throughout the 1980s, with riders like Virginio Ferrari, Jon Ekerold, Raymond Roche and Randy Mamola (who rode his Cagiva to third place in the 1988 Belgian GP) piloting their machines. But the beautiful Italian bikes only became seriously competitive in the early-90s, with Kocinski and Lawson on board.

Eddie Lawson, 500cc world champ in 1984, 86, 88 and 89, won the 1992 Hungarian 500cc GP aboard his Cagiva, and got a Ferrari Testarossa from the Castiglioni brothers for his efforts!
Lawson, in fact, won the Hungarian GP in 1992 on his Cagiva 500, and got a Ferrari Testarossa from Cagiva for his efforts. Later, Kocinski won the 1993 USGP at Laguna Seca. The Cagiva C593 packed a ‘big bang’ V4, which made 175 horsepower at 12,500rpm – a bit down on the Honda NSR500 of those days, but roughly equal to the Suzuki RGV500 and the Yamaha YZR500. The 130-kilo C593 was fitted with Michelin tyres, carbon brake discs, lots of carbonfibre bits and it even had an electronic, clutchless gearshift system back then. Cagiva also ran semi-active Showa suspension for some time, but later switched to conventional Ohlins units.

Due to financial troubles, Cagiva pulled out of GP racing after the end of the 1994 season. Today, all that’s left of their GP efforts is memories, old pics like the one you see here and a bunch of trophies in the Lawson and Kocinski households. At least Cagiva fans still have the Mito 500 to look forward to…



Honda to produce V4-powered bike

While Honda haven’t shown the much-anticipated VFR1000 this year, they’ve announced they will make an all-new V4-powered bike, which will be out in the market by early 2010. No word on what this bike will actually be – an all-out sportsbike, sports-tourer or something else.

Honda have also announced that they will be working on the development of a ‘next generation’ transmission, which would be based on dual-clutch technology. According to a company press release, this would combine the advantages of race and road transmission set-ups, and will provide dynamic and smoother gear shifts, with less impact on the chassis.

Honda believes its next generation transmission will help improve the riding experience and will provide better fuel economy and more efficient power transfer compared to the conventional manual transmission. Well, yeah, whatever. All we want is another RC45…


2009 Aprilia RSV4: Specs, official pics and video

The 2009 Aprilia RSV4. More than 180bhp in street trim...

Pics: Motociclismo
Aprilia have finally released the first official pics of the much-anticipated RSV4, the 999cc, V4-powered superbike with which Aprilia will go racing in WSBK next year, with Max Biaggi riding the bike.

Aprilia will build two versions of the RSV4 – the basic and Factory models – both of which will be powered by Aprilia’s all-new 65-degree, 999cc V4 engine. The new V4 is expected to make 180bhp in street trim (in a package that weighs 179kg dry), while the racing version will pump out around 210-220bhp.

Apart from that formidable V4 engine, the 2009 RSV4 gets aluminium twin-spar chassis with adjustable engine mounts, aluminium swingarm, fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, ride-by-wire throttle, three different fuel-injection maps (which vary the power delivery intensity), variable-length inlet tracts and electronic traction control. As is fairly evident, then, Aprilia intend to launch a no-holds-barred offensive against Japanese, German and other Italian litre-class machines with the new RSV4…

WSBK homologation requirements will mean that Aprilia will have to sell at least 250 units of the RSV4 by February 2009, and another 750 by June. Pricing isn’t likely to be for the faint of heart – expect to pay around US$30,000 for the base model, with the Factory version probably being closer to US$40,000!

And finally, here’s a bit of news for naked bike fans – Miguel Galluzzi, the man responsible for RSV4’s styling (he also designed the original Ducati Monster and the Cagiva Raptor), claims that a naked, streetfighter version of the RSV4 is also on the cards in the near future…
