Honda Racing Corporation unveiled a new engine called RC211V that will be used to compete in the World Grand Prix Championship in 2002. RC211V is the first four-stroke racing engine designed by Honda for the first year of 21st century, hence its coding. The engine design is a 5-cylinder in a V configuration, made up of three front cylinders and two rear cylinders.
The CBR thing has been debated to death. There have been plenty of threads about it buy I firmly believe that it stands for City Bike Race. The old smaller displacement hondas had the designation CB, which stood for City Bike, and when the Hurricane and it's decendants came out, they added the R for race. The RR on our bikes and the 929/954/1000RR's stands for Race Ready or Race Replica. I know it's a little redundant but it seems to make sense. Truth be known, it probably doesn't stand for anything, just some letters some marketing guy thought sounded cool, and two R's must be even cooler than one. Really, do you think they have debates over what GSXR stands for on gixxer.com?
RC is the race chassis code for honda 4-stroke race bikes.
i don't know why they stuck with CBR for the new multi-cylinder bikes.
however, the RC series WAS always in a V-configuration. including the RC-V... so that might be something to take note of.
a friend of mine was telling me about a electronic visor that can switch from smoked to clear.
i have seen similar idea on airplane windows, they have a lcd i think in between them.
any one know if they are for sale?
also he said he saw one that has daemon eyes on it that are leds, ever see?
I have tried to change from khp to mph the normal way ..... 'when on trip A press the reset button' - it does not work for me.
My speedo seems to be stuck on kph.
Anyone else have this problem? If so did you manage to changeto mph?
Anyone know why it would be stuck on kph?
So, below are a couple of pics from my old 1992 CBR600 (f2) - bought as the flamed pirelli, purchased some fairings from China for £350 and fitted myself - and I loved this bike.
Smashed it to bits at 4am one morning on my commute, taking a corner far too late - totally my fault.
No idea how this happened but the coolant overflow tank somehow got a hole in the top. It looks burned but it's not by the head or exhaust. No coolant was left in it. I noticed it when I was changing the oil.
