Question by proc: 1000cc MotoGP question.?
thinking about the rule changes for 2012 “intended rule changes”
comparing the 800s against the 1000cc engine. have I got this right
the diameter is limited to 81mm in both bikes ?
then its only the length of stroke or number of cylinders that’s different ?
don’t the short stroke engines rev quicker ?
wont the fuel limit shorten the stroke too ?
so is it really possible to make a competitive 1000cc in a race designed around the 800 ?
considering you cant have a bigger bore, the 800s are already on the fuel limit and you going to be adding weight ?
have I got the wrong end of the stick again ?
I understand the extra power working, and the tyre saving (?) But can the extra power be created ?

6 Questions there my good man !
1) Both bikes , Yes I think so.
2) Yes length of bore and that ” motoGP ” can change amount of pistons if the the pesky 1000cc’s are winning ( exspect to see 12 cyld )
3)Short stroke will rev quicker ….. yes except…..
4) if the ECU tells the fuels not to rev ( IE slow corner exit speed due to down revving
5) NO. The 1000’s will never win a fair fight. Hence the NSV500R Never beat the NSR500V [ 2 cyd vs 4 cyd]
6) the fuel limit of TODAY. Who know what will happen if the “supers” read Proddie engine.
Good work Sir!
