A pretty definitive statement with no word of explanation?
Firstly, let me acknowledge the terrific amount of development work involved in a project such as this.Then, I'd like to say that the project has taken an unexpected turn. Perhaps it is the best way to solve the issue as seen by the developers - however - I disagree and therefore I'm out.It really is that simple.
......I am saddened by the fact that you guys are using the same stock cams and not making new ones for this project!...............
Hi ace.cafeI am saddened by the fact that you guys are using the same stock cams and not making new ones for this project! Can you not design new cams which can also accommodate the auto-decomp? How about the new set of cams/throttle body etc the Cafe Racer is rumored to come with?Are we trying to go a little too cost effective with our UCE project?I have been told by one local RE manager here that C5 in India initially came with a set of cams which would develop play and start making noise quite early and another set which was better than the old ones. This I came to know when I got the noisy cams replaced on my bike.Also, I remember reading it somewhere on this thread that stock UCE 500 makes 19.8 hp at the wheel, but you have quoted 21 hp in your last post.
I think that it must have come from the custom valves adding cost. That seemed to be when it happened.........
Well ACE, since you seem to be calling me out on this.... I disagree with your plan to use exaggerated rocker geometry to obtain higher lift.Aside from the extreme mechanical loads you will end up twisting into the head casting (through the rocker pivots) this will do little for the lack of overlap and scavenging at higher RPM's.I was willing to let you have your campaign, and, not publicly torpedo you.... But when you started speaking for me you should have known I would correct the misperception.
Hi ace.cafeGood to know that we are open to more ideas and that cams will not act as a deterrent to performance. We can anyway borrow things from the cafe racer once parts become available for purchase(which will be soon after bike's launch in India). Are we not using the ACE CerMet/Moly Dri-Lube coated pistons for UCE?Thanksiron.head
