Swing arm is calculated for stiffness so it's ok.Quote from: Furious on December 23, 2014, 09:35:49 PMYes, but I don't understand why you can do without that. Looking at the video (assuming I get the principles right) you should have the same efficiency boost (and associated emission reduction) from a properly tuned exhaust.
Exhaust is also proper for this (not conventional) type of 2 stroke engine, as there is no back air load from (exhaust boost) exhaust pipes.
But to be honest I'm not sure I do understand exactly how it works: in particular, the road followed by the fresh air+fuel in the video below. Is the air injection chamber on top like a torus with ports on 3 "sides" of the cylinder (back, front and right) while the exhaust is the one on the left ?
I'm really no expert on all this, but one thing that strikes me is that I see a lot of sliding surfaces (with holes, lubrication is tricky), much more than on a conventional engine (2 or 4 strokes).
Interesting project anyway, good luck and keep us posted !!

The outcome is what matters.Quote from: HornetMaX on December 23, 2014, 12:16:20 PMHe say's with a smile! LOL
For big road/track bikes however, 2 strokes seems to be dead for good.
About that bike, the engine is by far the most interesting thing, would be nice to know more about it. The rest is ... well, design: love it or hate it. I hate the the fork head, not even a japanese on speed could have created that.
There a re a couple of design details that are a bit suspect to me (ground clearance, swing arm looks as flexible as a'50s bike, exhaust looks too small for a conventional 2 strokes), but it's almost always the case with prototypes imagined by architects. Plenty of time to sort things out later on.
Have to admit however, it's very unconventional so kudos for that.

Have you got more renders for us chappy???

PLease, learn to me how you did that. *fall on knees*
Btw, how the rims will handle that much power ? oO

Will there be a live stream available?
