valves out obviously. VE was measured on a flow bench... something kinda like this http://www.ganges.com/Cylinder_Head_Flow_Test_video_6786164/
but the test wasn't electronic... it was done with pitot tubes and murcury as such...

it wasnt mine though... otherwise I would have had to add that on to the price of my bike :p

the aim when porting it was to obtain high figures from low lift. so abit of time was spent trying different angles on the valve seats... that is a crucial aspect for VE... especially on a High revving engine.

you can see abit of the test rig on one of the photos of the cylinder head on my photobucket page.

*edit*

To increase the low lift figures (response, overall VE and alot of other crap) the squish pads taking up volume was essentialy getting in the way of my air flow path at low lifts... so they are ground back.

Gotta hand it to ya Brenda, it's real puurdy. One tiny bit of advice?



Get this shit and apply it liberally to your perished switchblocks. You won't believe how well it will bring them back to life, and given how good the rest of the cockpit looks, they currently stand out as can be seen above.



Shitty plastics go from this



to this

thanks.

if i have some paint left over from painting my other engine... I plan to repaint the master cylinder also.

I'll be sure to give it a try... probably wont give me any regain on resale though... so probably just a waste of effort.

Spending 21k on a cbr.. and you're concerned that you're not going to see any return on some 10 dollar polish?

Fuck you're retarded.

why thanks for the insult.

i think you are a top bloke.

infact... i should just give you money because I spent lots of money on a motorbike, which infact is still less than what people pay for a bike from the showroom.

i don't see anything wrong with that because I am retarded. feeling superior now?[hr]
also, you have no idea why I am trying to sell it... or what parts I am keeping/replacing.

Who the fuck pays 21k for a bike from the showroom? Only the exotics go for that. And they go a shitton faster and are literally better in every way except perhaps overall weight than a rebuilt 250 that even if restored immaculately to showroom condition is still a prime example of what 20 year old technology looks like!!

so that means anyone who restores or does up an old car/bike is retarded?

so that would include your self for rebuilding your r6.

also, how much is a new r1 retailing for? or what about a toyota corolla?

My R6 owes me a retarded amount of money. But I'm not whinging about whether or not I'll see any of it again, I realise that building a racebike is the quickest way to financially (And probably physically) cripple myself.

But in saying that, a supersport build is about 48k and still not as fast as a current litre in a straight line. At least it turns a fuckton faster. And I'm considering doing it, but at least there's a purpose. If you want to spend stupid money on fixing up a 250 that's your perogative. Go for it. Have fun, take pics, I'm keen to see them.

The instant you start talking about not seeing return on a fucking $10 bottle of polish you're officially either being facetious or trolling. Or both.

New R1 has a sticker of about 19k. If you can't get away for 17 there's something wrong with you anyway.

perhaps i can shine it in a different light.

the sense of accomplishment is pointless if there is always something/someone better? I shouldn't waste time on a cbr... but I cant afford a 1098. I shouldn't bother climbing mt fuji because there is mt everest.

what the heck did i do to deserve this?

Richo's bike is old? Or 'done up'? Richo: What cosmetic-only mods have you done on your R6? Just sponsors stickers?

Richo races his bike Brendan, and has spent moolah on things that make it faster, such as suspension. He also doesn't scream "I spent $XXXX dorrars!" in a failed attempt to be a big shot, all the while including his petrol bills, services and speeding fines in the total.
