Title: CAWS MOD Team - Beta 12+ - Bike Release - Ducati 916 Strada - BETA
Post by: Napalm Nick on September 28, 2017, 07:36:02 pm

On behalf of the CAWS MOD TEAM -

Ducati 916 STRADA

(https://media.giphy.com/media/l378if23nRoaJCGac/giphy.gif)
1994-1998 90o V twin - watch out for the 916 SP/SPS and 955

WIKI PAGE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ducati_916)

In the Official BikeMOD HERE (https://mega.nz/#F!GdAUhKxA!04IzRVoF6CEVLUq2nbpH1g) Friday 29th September 2017

Now Beta 12 holds the tyre files separately - Don't forget the TYRES (will also be in the BikeMod).

All feedback is good.

Special appreciation to H106FRP for building this bike from SCRATCH - great 3d work and physics.

My new favourite bike! Superb. Beautiful. The clocks detail is just so good. And the sound is something else, listening to it in a replay on the overrun - lovely.
And it handles great! The default suspension just seems absolutely spot on.

I thought the tyres might be giving more grip than what road tyres should, but I still highsided it no problem, so I'm probably wrong on that.
The 1st gear wheelying at low speed with low throttle seems wrong to me, but having never ridden one, I'm probably wrong on that too!
Anyway, brilliant job H106FRP and the CAWS team.

I'm liking the rear grip(on-track).

Done a lot of miles on the Strada in B11 - flogging The Ring day after day to try to burn it to memory.
After a few weeks Strada-less I was back again yesterday like a shot.   :D

The tyres are showing the usual traits that most B11-tuned bikes have now in B12(grip too high on the grass - nearly impossible to wash out the front) but the rear(which did have a tendancy to let go before if you clipped a white line/hit a mid-corner bump/grabbed a handful a gear too low - is feeling real nice now.   Yesterday I was getting more variation in my 'moments' (squirming/highsides/a couple of near let-gos that caught again)...
...and the few dreaded corners where I was having to go down into first were much more in control.  If there was a little inadvertant lock-up it would catch again more often than before.

Which yeah - was all every bit as entertaining as it sounds.   ;D
Great to have the wee baby back in the garage - Thanks again H.   ;)

Just thought I'd point out that h106frp gives his bikes 20mm of front ride height adjustment.
...so they can be brought a lot closer to properly balanced than those with only 10mm.
(still front heavy - but closer - close enough to sort the understeer at least)

Not out to big-up h and the Strada(although I will - happily - anytime  ;D ) - it's more just a public service announcement for other folk who may be stuggling find a bike they want to ride in B14 while the bike guys work out what's going on.
