Working on Mistress, My Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic

Made some progress today fixing Mistress, my 2003 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic. Ordered a new Light bar kit to get the hollow bolt to remount the left side driving lamp.

Remounted the windscreen, tightened the handle bars & reinstalled the clock & temp gauges.

Removed the saddlebags and left rear turn signal & straightened the mounting bar.

Still need to order new clear turn signal lenses & Star eyebrows.

Hyosung GV650SE Special Limited 30th Anniversary Edition, 2009


The best just got better!

It’s been 30 years since Hyosung motorcycles was founded in South Korea and, to commemorate the milestone, a limited-edition version of the popular GV650 cruiser has been released for the 2008 model year.

The GV650 has always been one of Hyosung’s best-selling models, combining sporty cruising with ample power and an attractive price tag. The anniversary model still combines all those elements, but it’s in the finish where the disparity kicks in: the tubular frame and wheels on the limited-edition are red, and the rest of the machine is a deep and lustrous black.

Hyosung motorcycles are manufactured at a massive industrial complex in Changwon City, which is located on the south-eastern tip of the Korean Peninsula. In 2007, Hyosung Motors and Machinery was acquired by the S&T Group – one of South Korea’s biggest corporations with a global turnover of more than $10 billion. The manufacturing company is now called S&T Motors.

Limited Edition GV650.
Limited edition of the GV650 featuring EFI, special gloss/matte black finish, Candy Red highlights, and it is embossed with "30 Anniversary xxx out of 1000". This model is limited to 200 bikes within the USA. The other 800 bikes are shipped to other countries so if you purchase one, you will have 1 of 1000 in the entire world, 1 of 200 in the USA.

This bike looks like a V-Rod but is 1/3 the price. Even at 1/3 the price, the bike has many high-end features like an 8 valve DOHC engine that revs to 10,500RPM while putting out 80HP. It is water cooled, has a large capacity fuel tank, adjustable foot pegs, dual front disk brakes and a two year warranty.

The bike employs a belt drive system which is 3 times better than the chain-type plus this belt drive is quieter and maintenance-free.

1929 Model Big Four Norton - SOLD

Sent by Bob

This 1929 Big Four featured in an earlier blog. Bob:"I have now finished this Norton, a lovely machine; fitted new magneto, mains, fork bushes, wheel bearings, valves, piston and rebore, spokes, original registration and V5C, tyres, tubes, clock in tank, etc etc. Simon checked the numbers with the Works Records and it's the original frame to engine. But I have a problem, I can't hold her up or kick her over without doing more damage to a recent knee operation. I was going to put a chair on but the wife has a change of mind. I think I will have to sell. I'm looking for serious offers. Anyone interested should email John who will forward the emails to me."

1928 Model 24 - For sale

For sale at Verralls; a flat tank Norton described as an original 1928 Model 24. I've never seen one before but when the description is correct the dry-sump 588cc engine (!) sitting next to it would originally have been fitted. The 4-speed box is correct for this model. There were a few 588 dry-sump ES2 engines made/sold by Nortons; it is only the differing main shaft diameters which means that standard 588 flywheels can't be used in ES2s so in that respect it could be correct. A very interesting flat tanker with a hefty price tag at £21,500 (for which off course you also get the spare Model 18 engine).

Ian Hatton:"It's a 588cc OHV with the Model 25 type recirculating oiling system. Standard Model 18 engine is presently fitted but I have included a pic of the oil tank to show the return oil line. Obviously the external oil pump is not correct. Also has a four speed cross over gearbox. I believe all these details to be original."

Ducati Desmosedici RR, 2010

Ducati Desmosedici RR, 2010



The dream of a true GP replica has finally come true and the Desmosedici RR will be the first-ever road-going motorcycle to offer such a stunning wealth of performance and technology that comes directly from Ducati's experience in MotoGP. The RR derives from the Ducati Corse Grand Prix racing Desmosedici GP6, the same bike with which Loris Capirossi and Sete Gibernau are competing with in the 2006 MotoGP World Championship.
The body design and the aerodynamics faithfully reflect the Desmosedici GP6. The colour scheme, the fittings, the materials used in its construction as well as the technical features of the powerful four-cylinder desmodromic engine built by the Borgo Panigale factory engineers, leave no doubts whatsoever: the Desmosedici RR is the ultimate expression of the most extreme MotoGP racing machine today.
This is the new frontier of Ducati technological evolution, a dream come true, demonstrating once again the courage and the passion of Ducati, as well as the ability to transfer the experience of the racing world to a machine that is destined for road use.

The Engine
The Ducati Desmosedici RR features advanced technology and aerodynamics that are derived from the GP6 currently being raced in the 2006 MotoGP World Championship.
The engine of the Desmosedici RR accurately reflects that of the MotoGP bike: Ducati's traditional desmodromic distribution, guaranteeing precise valve control up to the highest revs, is perfectly matched to the 989 cc four-cylinder 'L' layout, with four titanium valves per cylinder, in asymmetrical Twin Pulse configuration, producing a masterwork of precision engineering.
The double overhead cams are gear driven, a sophisticated and reliable solution that enables precise valve timing in all conditions. This authentic copy of the Grand Prix engine is completed by a six-speed transmission, which retains its 'racing' characteristic by being cassette type, and a hydraulically actuated dry multi-plate slipper clutch.
The aim of producing a light but robust engine has led not only to an unrivalled quality component design but also the use of exclusive racing-derived materials: sand-cast, aluminium crankcase and cylinder heads, titanium connecting rods and valves, sand-cast magnesium engine covers.

Four 50 mm Magneti Marelli throttle bodies are present, with 12-hole 'microjet' injectors. For sophisticated management of the powerful four-cylinder engine a Magneti Marelli 5SM ECU and high-speed CAN line electronics have been used.
An all-time 'first' comes with the use of a '4 into 2 into 1' exhaust, with "vertical exit" silencer, hidden in the tail cover.
These are all benchmark performance features for a MotoGP replica bike, which is capable of delivering more than 200 hp of power with the 102 dB racing silencer and dedicated CPU race kit.
Amazingly the Desmosedici RR with its catalytic oxygen sensor exhaust, homologated for road use, fully complies with Euro3 emissions regulations.

The Chassis
The engine clearly represents the beating heart of this fantastic motorcycle, but the technological advancements also extend to the chassis: a signature tubular trellis hybrid frame, refined components, and a superb carbon fibre body. This is a motorcycle that is destined for an expert rider, someone who is always looking for extreme sporting performance, as well as being an exclusive, esoteric, reliable product that is more than capable of track racing.
The colour scheme of the Desmosedici RR was the work of Alan Jenkins, the designer and one of the men behind the Desmosedici MotoGP, who was also responsible for the aerodynamics package which is aimed at achieving maximum speed and excellent handling. The bike is totally inspired by the racing machine, the Ducati Desmosedici GP6, from which it inherits all the aggressiveness of its lines. It is fitted with a new lightweight multifunction dashboard, developed in collaboration with Ducati Corse, the same one that will be fitted to next year's racing machine, the Desmosedici GP7.
The bike's development could not have been made possible without the significant collaboration of Vittoriano Guareschi, the official Ducati Corse tester, whose riding abilities and hundreds of hours of track time have made a fundamental contribution to the evolution of the project.

For the first time the Ducati Desmosedici RR uses a new welded tubular steel trellis hybrid frame (ALS 450) with the frame geometry that is the same as that of the Desmosedici GP6.
This construction guarantees an excellent stiffness to weight ratio, allowing superior manoevrability and riding precision. Attached to the red frame is the rear seat support in high temperature resin type carbon fibre. This material, normally used only on racing bikes, has the characteristic of being extremely lightweight but exceptionally rigid.
The Desmosedici RR sports a new extra-long, cast, forged and pressed aluminium alloy swingarm. The geometry and the technology of this component derive directly from the MotoGP bike, and give the RR a high level of traction control, and excellent weight distribution as well as a superb stiffness to weight ratio.

In the suspension department the Ducati Desmosedici RR features the most advanced technical components.
The rear suspension geometry and layout is the same as that of the GP6, with the rear shock attached above the swingarm and to a rocker, which is hinged to the crankcase.
The front suspension features 43 mm upside-down Öhlins FG353 pressurized forks (PFF), with TiN coated sliders. The forks, which come directly from competition use, as well as being pressurized thus ensuring excellent track performance, are fully adjustable in preload, rebound and compression.

The DUCATI DESMOSEDICI RR Technical Specifications :

Type L-4 cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, Desmodromic, 4 valves per cylinder, gear driven camshafts
Displacement 989 cc
Power More than 200 HP @ 13,500 rpm* Torque n/a

Honda EV Electric Moped Prototype, 2004

Honda EV Electric Moped Prototype, 2004

With a length of 1,290 mm and weighing 44 kg, the Moped-EV is compact and light. Its nickel hydrogen battery, located inside an aluminum frame, is extremely light, dissipates heat efficiently, and, at 360 watt-hours, offers exceptionally long life. Powerful enough to climb a twelve-degree incline, the electric moped offers performance comparable to that of an internal combustion engine bike of the same class.
Unlike most other bikes, which employ a grip throttle, the Moped-EV features a two-stage lever throttle located beneath the right handlebar. Worked easily by the thumb, the lever throttle helps make riding easy even for less-experienced riders.

The Moped-EV features a unified module in the rear swing arm that integrates the motor with a controller, which regulates the driving functions and the discharge and recharging of electricity.

The Honda has long conducted research into the development of next-generation power sources that reduce noxious emissions and help slow global warming. In 1994, Honda developed the CUV ES, an electric scooter leased to government institutions. Following in the tracks of that revolutionary vehicle, the Moped-EV is designed to offer quiet, clean riding both for commuting and recreational use

Marco Simoncelli: Black Horse Honda

No matter senoir or contemporary, no matter compatriots or team-mates, will not preclude a Marco Simoncelli to act and perform dangerous maneuvers. Unfortunately, not always successfully, in addition to endangering other riders were also more often self-defeating.

Season 2010 Black Horse Honda Simoncelli impressed late "hot. " Very late in fact. The new frizzy hair can compete at the forefront in the last two series that take place in Estoril and Valencia circuit. And that's not yet yielded the podium, so that he can not pay my vows to cut hair kribonya which seemed already over.

Yet it did not deter the manufacturer Honda to provide full factory support for him in this 2011 season. Yup, from the beginning it was actually Super Sic rider manufacturer. Italiano it menandatangangani contract with Honda Racing Corporatian (HRC), but left at the Honda Gresini team.

As a manifestation of the seriousness of the HRC to give full support, during a test session at Valencia last November 2010, the 250cc world champion in 2008 it has was asked to test the aerodynamic device specifically for him. Yes, big tall posture that it would require different treatment when compared with Dani Pedrosa are tiny.

But, Simoncelli course should provide feedback in kind to the HRC. Preferential treatment that could be withdrawn if he is still more frequent than gain points DNF. Moreover, the HRC has had three other champion, Dani Pedrosa, Andrea Dovizioso and Casey Stoner of course. If Simoncelli managed to align themselves with the third rider, or at least could surpass one of them, then there is the possibility in 2012 he no longer had to be a surrogate rider.

Honda So it's time Champion Again

For the first time since the departure of Valentino Rossi, Honda considered to have a squad the best racers. Plus the motor is very competitive, is the moment of the 2011 season in which Honda could return reigned.

The last time Honda sends riders to the podium MotoGP world champion was in 2006 by Nicky Hayden. In the same season Honda also grabbed the constructors' world championship after winning eight victories from 17 series that was held.

But after that Honda no longer able to compete in the struggle for the title. Manufacturers from Japan's even had to accept down to third position, behind Yamaha and Ducati.

But this year, since pre-season testing, the Honda is much promising performance. Plus the drivers are very good squad in Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, this could be the year where Honda could again be a champion. Thus disclosed mechanical mainstay Valentino Rossi, Jerry Burgess.

"Honda makes major changes, no doubt about that. They've never won it seriously since 2003. I know they won in 2006 but I know the mentality of the people in the Honda and if you do not dominated the race throughout the season then his feelings would be different, "said Burgess.

"They've been trying in recent years, but the biggest hope is to take place this year,"said Burgess at MCN.

Although only two races has elapsed, the Honda performance so far is very satisfactory. Except for the incident that forced Stoner fell in Spain, the team drivers were able to show superiority over its competitors.

"Honda worked well with each other. If one of the drivers underwent a bad day he received information from colleagues who would make him say 'why is my bad day? It must be me and not because the bike'. Casey is clearly the fastest racer," Burgess finished.

There is no name in the early Bautista MotoGP series this season. Injuries suffered by the Spanish rider kept him out in two earlier series.

Bautista is now ready to return to enliven competition pole. Suzuki rider was declared ready to perform for the Grand Prix of Portugal at Estoril this weekend.

"I've worked very hard to be precise with the time of his comeback race at Estoril and I am sure I can take part in the race later. I understand the process is indeed heavy, but I think I can get back nyetel with the motor and it will help me process the total recovery live and return to normal fitness, "Bautista straightforward as quoted by Autosport.

Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Nightster XL1200N, 2009

Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Nightster XL1200N, 2009


The Nightster takes the Sportster legend in a dark direction with dead-on, rat-rod styling. Black finishes cover wheel rims and hubs, forks and handlebar, hand and foot controls. Old school style fork gaiters and a bullet-hole belt guard emphasize the original look. A low suspension puts the rider at seat height of just 25.3 inches. The new smaller front and rear fenders show more of the black laced steel wheels. The soulful 1200 Evolution engine growls through a Chrome Slash-Cut Staggered exhaust.

The evolution of the Harley-Davidson hot rod continues for 2009, as most Sportster models roll into the new year on retuned suspension. Five Sportster models retain the raw, soulful styling that represents the uninhibited essence of motorcycling. Responsive handling, the flat torque delivery and distinctive sound of an American V-Twin engine, and classic styling cues make Harley-Davidson Sportster a motorcycle that just keeps getting better.
When it debuted in 1957, the original Sportster projected a tough and rebellious attitude that was born on the gritty dirt tracks and drag strips of that era. That spirit lingers in every new Sportster model, from the retro-bobber Nightster to the glittering chrome of the long 1200 Custom.
Sportster models are powered by the Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) XL Evolution V-Twin powertrain, rubber-mounted in the frame to reduce vibration and tuned to deliver a flat torque curve for responsive performance. Among the most-affordable Harley-Davidson models, Sportster motorcycles offer a low, comfortable seat, smooth clutch effort, and a durable carbon fiber reinforced final drive belt.
New on Sportster for 2009

Enhanced Suspension: The suspension is upgraded on the 883 Custom, 1200 Low and 1200 Custom. Springs and dampening rates have been recalibrated and new damping devices were installed to provide superior ride quality.
New Front Fenders: All Sportster models get a new low-profile front fender that hugs the tire for a streamlined, custom look.
New Rear Wheel on Custom models: The 883 Custom and 1200 Custom models receive new rear wheels that weigh four pounds less while maintaining stiffness and durability. The lighter wheel improves ride quality by reducing unsprung weight. The 1200 Custom has a new chrome cast aluminum slotted disc rear wheel, while the 883 Custom rear is a Silver cast aluminum solid disc.
