I thought it was the other way around?
Pump gas in Europe more resistant to knock, or detonate.
Doesn't a BMW 1150 GS have about 76 hp? I've ridden two up loaded for camping and never had a problem. With modern, and in the case of the 1150, not so modern FI, power loss is mitigated.
Yeah, 75hp from my TDM has always been plenty for family getaways.
When in doubt, try forced induction out.
A turbo could be interesting. It seemed to make a WR250R power-wheely in the first 7 gears.
When are those drum-charger things gonna be developed and brought to market?!
Maybe a ram-air intake would help at altitude.
I like getting pretty close to flat-footing, but at 5' 10", 31", no chance with this. Has anyone got the lowered version? If so, what's that like?
Is there a reason for all that waisted volume? ... maybe expansion room?
I guess a sharp metal punch would do the trick to put multiple small holes on either side of the neck?
The low seat is 20mm lower, which might be enough (probably not very comfortable, though). And the low link another 18mm. Either might be OK.
At 875mm, the T700 is the same as a CRF250L which is manageable for me since it's about 60kg lighter, but with anything over 200kg I really need to be able to flat-foot (especially for city riding).
The other rental company in Antalya will have the T700 soon, maybe next year I'll give it a go - http://www.turkeybikerent.com/en/yamaha-t-700
LOL, I'm beginning to think there are a lot of mahouts out there.
I think this looks so good to me because it makes the fuel tank and fairing look like one cohesive unit. Kinda like the original Dakar racers. Also it appears to visually lower the fuel tank ( i.e. makes it look "less tall"). Very sharp indeed.
There will be a large variety of decal kits
Yes, thats exactly how it works, just one hole will do the trick
A test team in The Netherlands got 426 km out of the T7 on one fill up.
Kinda like the rims in blue.
Many motorcycles come with an evaporative emission system designed to collect and store fuel vapors, but these systems are not designed to deal with excess fuel. So if you overfill your motorcycle fuel tank, the fuel can enter the fuel-vapor separator and then eventually the rest of the system, thus resulting in stalling or hard starting.
HOW TO FILL A MOTORCYCLE GAS TANK
The best way to prevent this problem is to read the instructions in your owner’s manual for refueling. When you fill your gas tank, the fuel level should barely touch the bottom of the fuel tank filler neck. This is how to fill a motorcycle gas tank the right way.
Unless you remove your evap system overfilling can cause problems. And I would leave some room for expansion also.
We've done this trick with all sorts of Tenere's for 35 years now, on some models you gain 4 liters! Never any issues, it works fine on the T7 too.
420 / 260 km/mls on a full tank on the T7 now.
A few used T7's already for sale in Germany.
With closed loop fuel injection systems the fuel to air ratio is corrected so the motors run well however they produce less power as there is less air pressure at high altitude. I covered 5,000 miles across the Andes 2 up on an XT 660. It was injected so ran well and had enough power at sea level. Whilst it was OK at 15K ft, it lacked power. My estimated 80HP at sea level is based on about 55hp at 15Kft. Those on BMW 800s found it OK at 15Kft and they had circa 80HP at sea level so that supports the number.
Not sure I understand this, just buy a bike with 75 to 80HP and it'll do everything. These days that means around 700 to 800cc.
And what if you're below sealevel?
