Winterseason is closing in soon and that means we all are getting ready to build the bikes we have in our head, to use for next year. I always go a bit off the chart with this, with 5 bikes on my mind and maybe one actually coming out of the shed finished.
For this year, I hope it will be different; have the 2nd oilcooled EF tourer to finish (possible turbo-ed), need to freshen up the Banana, 1st oilcooled EF needs a frontend rebuild, 1135 EF needs a gearbox and the 2 other Slingshots will receive racefairings and the neccecary mods to go on track; it's all pretty straight-forward.
However, over time and especially sitting in a hedge during the TT and hearing the racebikes hanging in the tractioncontrol, I've gotten very intrigued by current modernday motorcycle electronics and I'm thinking how/if it is possible to get this to work on one of our bikes.
You see, with @Arttuas our resident EFI wizard and being up close with @Leblowskiand @bruteforce's EFI-turbo bikes and @Jelly's in the works, this all got me thinking if it would be possible to take it a step further (or a fair few if you will)
To me, all it should be is;
-Front and rearwheel speed
Getting this right would give me;
-Whatever else we can think of
All this stuff is currently used on every superbike you can buy in the shop and the stuff gets cleverer and faster every year, surely you should be able to lift all of this and basically strap it to a Slingie, get it dailed in "a bit" and you have one older motorcycle with all the fancy rideraids you can get on the current modern stuff.
Am I making it sound easier than it will be, or do you think I'm onto something? Answers below
