    Odd how the best engine technology is based on quite old designs - ie this bike can trace its roots to 1970s 2 valve per cylinder Kawasaki Z1s, just as top fuel drag engines hark back to 1950s Chrysler Hemis.
    McGee built a 4 valve Top Fuel engine but could never get it to run with the Hemis.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.
    those cheap ass bitches can do anything with ductape.

    Hi
    Did you know that our own Top Fuel Rider Athol Williams has run 238mph on his bike?
    Until recently that was the 4th fastest drag bike run in the world.
    I even have a Titanium Intake Valve that was in the RB Performance engine that ran that speed.
    Just a few days back Korry Hogan ran 255mph.
    If you ever get a chance to see a Top Fuel Drag bike run you should..they are incredible.
    Thanks
    Richard

    Many Many years, perhaps late 70's early 80's a few of us were at Meremere night drags...Doug Brown had his jet car there called Wldfire...anyway, later on, we were in the pits and talking to this bloke called Athol. Dont remeber his last name but back then he was talking about putting a V8 into a bike frame..
    We were there in the pits with a Morrinsville bloke called Howard Smith, he used to do Chrome work for hot rodders around the Waikato.
    Oh the memories.

    Find engine technology that isn't an old design With the exception of variable valve timing (in application, the idea is billions of years old)

    Not much is new

    That's neat though!

    Steltzer engine design was 50's wasn't it? And the OPOC was well before that.

    Yeah, I remembered seeing it a few months back. I wonder if it'll ever make it to production. Sorry, I was just being a smart arse
