  • Power To Weight Ratios

    While I am waiting to ride my new bike I was just playing around with some numbers. The fastest performance bike on the market that also is light is the GSXR 1000. It has a power to weight ratio of 2.86 pounds per horsepower. (430lbs wet / 150rwhp) A stock TLR has a ratio of 4.1lbs per hp. (500lbs wet/ 120rwhp) My bike with the stock motor with bored injectors big airbox and full exhaust should have a ratio of 2.76 lbs per hp.(360lbs wet/130 rwhp) Wow it should run with the GSXR with just the stock motor! WIth the good motor that drops to 2.4lbs per hp. Not to mention stoping and turning right inside even a 600. This is going to be fun.

      I would love to know what a stock TLs weighs (real figures) with all fluids and a full tank. I reckon mines lost a bit of weight.

          I'll ask Doug, he should know, he weighed both his TLS and TLR wet. I'll let you know.

            Arrrg that's great Art. My TL is down to 439 wet with about 130 to the back tire. I just got a track bike.. 2002 954RR that we have lightened up to about 360 dry or roughly 415-420 wet that has about 138 stock to the back tire and 145 with a pipe/PC3R so that should be fun. We are also seriously thinking about turboing the 954 to the tune of a very mild 200hp to the back tire with only 4-6psi along with producing turbo kits for various bikes. Keep us posted on your progress. Mitch

                power to weight

                Eviltwin look at the airfilter thred to see how I got 360lbs. I am looking at the December 98 issue of Motorcyclist and they quote the TLR at 505 wet.

                  Hey SV996R, I've got a brand new in the box BMC filter for your 954RR if you are interested. The only problem is that I couldn't ship it for 1-2 weeks or so.

                    Here's some weights. (thanks to Doug )

                    TLR with Yosh system and Penske, after 16 miles on a full tank it weighed 484 pounds.

                    TLR current weight with all the undetail mods, same amount of gas, and PVM Y-Spokes was 460 pounds.

                    Stock TLS weighed around 485 wet!

                    TLS with Penske, Yosh full system weighed 474 pounds wet it also was after 16 miles on a full tank.

                        If memory serves, the TL engine alone weighs about 165 pounds.

                          I have a figure of 64kg - 141lbs for the engine. TLS_Ben weighed his when he took it out.

                              How did you get your TLR down to 360lbs...wet even?!?!

                              I looked under the Air Filter thread...didn't find out how you did it...
                              Be good, and if you can't be good...be really, REALLY bad!!
