i heard something about a nuclear powered 600rr coming out sometime in 2018. ???

 :P :P

I dont know if they are going to have it ready by then but you can bet by 2009 we will be seeing hydrogin (sp) sportbikes. :spank:
I am kinder and gentler now.  I will bend you over AND use lube cuz Jeff said I should.

You still aint getin a reach around.

HYDROGEN.  Hydrogin is something you might find at a bar...

Did you notice the (sp) after that?  God damn dude, I said it was misspelled and you still went spelling Nazi on me. :-X ::)

stop flaming the guy, he asked a valid, if uninformed question. Maximum piston speed is an important factor in engine wear and catastrophic failure. The problem is, no one outside the walls of the  Honda engineering department is going to know about that. Okay, maybe some people on top level race teams, but still very few.

I saw the (sp).  You weren't sure, so I corrected you.  Spelling Nazi?  Haha.  Shut up and get back on your knees, beeotch. :spank:

So why would one ask such a question? Does he want to reset the rev limiter? If it's a stock engine it wouldn't make any sense as the peak HP is around 13,800rpm. Is he building an engine with a cam, valve and head work? I just don't see the point of knowing that information. ??? Please explain.

And don't take our flaming personal. We just like to have fun around here. Skin thickens over time so stick around. :thumb:

People on this thread are not aware of the physics of engine builiding. Two engines that are turning the same RPM can have different piston speeds. If the strokes, rod length, or pin hieght are different this will all change piston speed. I have built automotive drag race engines for years and this is an issue that can win or loose a race. This is definitly critical with a small cube engine that is naturally aspirated. This is also the reason that small engines can need massive amounts of air (large throttle bodies) that larger engines do not have. RPM is not the reason! Piston speed determines the V/E of the design!

Also, if you wanted to spin the engine less RPM and have the same or more piston speed, knowing these factors can allow you to build the engine to a desired purpose, maybe other forms of racing that does not involve curves...

HIRoller, that's all fine and well, but we're talking about a STOCK cbr600rr which makes the question somewhat pointless...

exactly...these things are takin into consideration and produced during production.  your not going to change piston speed without MAJOR overhaul or BIG money parts. piston speed cannot be changed without changing crankshafts, rods, pistons themselves, etc etc etc.  now if your looking for max reccomended for this engine......to...lets say.....change the rev limiter.......then thats different.  but idk why you would want to anyway.  honda's already done all this research making the engine.  i understand there is such thing as piston speed......but i dont see the practical use for it as a figure unless your building an engine from aluminum stock and up.   if there is in fact something that is relavant to and i can use the numbers....please enlighten me  (no sarcasm...im serious i want to learn about this more)

I couldn't agree more with you both. Only if you are building from the ground up would you concider such factors. As for raising the rev limit to increase piston speed, as you all have stated, peak hp was made 2000 RPM ago why torture it for no reason. Your no going to change that fact no matter it you make it turn 25000!!! :thumb:

hey! some of us are. you bring up good points, though.
Embrace apathy.
