Ethanol 101

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ElO ETHANOL FUEL Gums rapidly form in the fuel tank and fuel delivery systems as ethanol fuels age. However, ethanol is also a powerful solvent that v ill strip away and disperse this build up back into the fuel as large, performance-robbing particles. This leads to clogged filters, injectors and carburetors. PROBLEM 4 ETHANOL CAUSES LOST POWER, PERFORMANCE AND DECREASED FUEL ECONOMY Ethanol fuel does not produce as much energy as traditional fuel. This results in...

Delivered Fast To Vour Door

What's with you guys Same articles for June and July, rehashing the same bikes with the same information I find your magazine very boring, featuring the same bikes over and over again. I'm really sick of hearing about the Ducati 1198 S and now the BMW S1000RR. The other two bike magazines have you beat. The only reason I keep my subscription is because Cycle World is cheap and I need something to start the fire in my wood stove. Frank Mohr Blue Bell, Pennsylvania With all due respect, John...

Ompetition Is Expensive And Money Is

Www Cycleworld Com

A provider of spec tires must first of all satisfy those it supplies that the same choices are available to all without reservation. The maker of a spec tire has an opportunity for development, using the data collected through a race series to steer improvements. Or the maker may elect to simply supply well-understood conservative compounds and constructions, taking the benefit of its series participation in public relations. It's all a matter of money. Naturally, there cannot be just one spec...

On the commute to work, I get cut off or otherwise threatened in a vehicular manner on a regular basis by people using their handheld devices in ways California law no longer allows and common decency has been against from the beginning. Heck, the last only time I was in India, there were dudes piloting animal-drawn carts and riders with their families motoring along on Ba-jaj 150cc motorcycles talking on the phone, texting, checking e-mail, etc. We here at CW are...

Bmw F800gs

Commuter meets tourer meets off-road adventurer OUR LONG-TERM EVALUATION OF BMW's F800GS wasn't supposed to take this, um, long to complete. Mix-ups with a couple of aftermarket suppliers, for example, forced us to miss an entire summer of riding. So, while our time with the midsize GS wasn't without a few bumps in the road, when the dust finally settled literally , we came to the conclusion that this parallel-Twin is one of the most enjoyable and versatile motorcycles available today....

Sportster Superbike

Moto Xri200x

When negotiating the winding road course at speed. It's only natural to obsess over what you can't have, and for the sport-minded Harley-Davidson faithful living on the home front, the XR1200 has been a bone of contention. Coy marketing ploy or not, when the sportiest of Sportster models to ever roll off The Motor Company assembly line debuted three years ago, the titillating street-tracker-style machines were crated and shipped overseas as a European market exclusive. Although Harley heeded...

Cycle World's program to see if a private team can be competitive in the AMA Pro American SuperBike class had a great day at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch near Pahrump, Nevada, but ran afoul of several realities in its second test, a two-day outing at Barber Motorsports Park near Birmingham, Alabama. After that first outing, experienced national rider Eric Bostrom says that the bike had precision meaning it was stable, a good platform from which to launch maneuvers and seemed really good....

WELL, I GOT ABSOLUTELY MURdered on taxes this year. Following a financial planning guide that recommends practicing for retirement several years before you actually retire, I foolishly cut back on the sort of large, ruinous old car and motorcycle restoration projects that have always been the financial black hole of my earthly existence. Unfortunately, the IRS saw all this thrift as a surge in personal wealth and politely asked me to send them enough money to pay for the cleanup of the BP oil...

Rimini's superbike gets the latest 1198 Testastretta engine a longer swingarm to help accommodate the passenger, but the concept was put on hold due to the substantial costs associated with creating such an all-new design. Therefore, wheelbase spans the same 56.3 inches as the DB7's. Bimota has fitted the latest version of the Ducati 1198 Testastretta to the DB8. One of the ' big differences between the Bimota is a unique company within the motorcycle industry great image, great technical...
