Answer by Thumprr
I’ve enjoyed upkeep intervals of 24K miles or thus. There’s nothing incorrect with belts, though they will create changing gearing more complicated, plus high-power applications need wider belts. The hot Buell 1125R is a belt drive, plus puts out 120-130 hp. That’s possibly the highest-power bicycle available at the moment with a stock belt drive. But the BMW F800S plus ST employ them, too. They place out about 80 hp.
I don’t think they’re anymore pricey to substitute than a chain, incredibly because they last twice because lengthy. You must pull the swingarm to substitute them, though. They’re quieter plus cleaner than a chain, plus need less repair.
I am a new rider plus I purchased a hot Suzuki S40 Boulevard. I completely love it plus I’m absolutely getting into bicycles. I am having trouble calculating the horsepower. My S40 is a 655 cc as well as the dealer told me it was 31 Hp. How did he recognize which plus is he even correct? I’ve read which cc’s do NOT straight relate to Hp thus what exactly is the formula?
Answer by John M
there is a machine called a dynomometer which we ride the bicycle about to gauge its horsepower where it truly issues, that is where the tire meets the road. We are right which there is a lot more which goes into figuring out horsepower than the displacement (cc’s) of the engine. Other engine components plus shape, the fat of the bicycle is additionally a useful problem.
Answer by Scott H
You’re correct. There is not a direct correlation between cc’s plus horsepower, though generally the more cc’s, the more horsepower. We either have to take a bicycle plus have it tested about a dynomometer, or discover Suzuki’s specs. I have a C50T, that is 805cc plus I think I read, 55hp. Great chance!
