How do you calculate sprocket rpm?

calculating sprocket RPM is very easy if you know what the RPM of the drive sprocket is. If you know that then it is a simple fraction problem. If you make the drive gear the numerator or the top part of the fraction and the driven gear the denominator or the bottom part of the fraction (DRIVE/DRIVEN) I.E. if the drive sprocket has 25 teeth and your driven sprocket has 100 teeth (25/100) that will reduce to (1/4) or a 4:1 ratio. So if your drive sprocket is spinning at 1000 RPM then your driven sprocket will be spinning at 250 RPM. You can plug your specific sprocket tooth count into that equation and come up with the right answer.

What is a power band in a dirt bike?

Most dirt bikes use carburettors (until about this year), they regulate how much fuel and air the engine gets. The more of this it gets the more power it makes. When you apply the throttle, it increases the amount of fuel and air allowed into the engine. A power band is the interaction between the amount of throttle you apply and the amount of power the engine makes, different bikes make very different powerbands.

What is the value of a motogp bike?

MotoGP bikes are a one-of-a-kind prototype in which every part is custom made. It's nearly impossible to put a value on a GP motorcycle - though one way to get an idea is to take a look at what it would cost to lease one from a manufacturer: it is in the neighborhood of $3 million a year. The lease price is around the actual value. They are made in single-digit numbers, and the development costs run in the tens of millions of dollars, so a round figure of $2-3 million would be a fair appraisal. The complexity of a Moto GP bike is truly staggering. Many of the bikes have TWO crankshafts to make them gyroscopically neutral. Most also have GPS data of every last square inch of every last track on the schedule, as well as the camber/slope of each corner, so that the onboard computer can apportion just the right amount of engine power to the rear wheel for where the bike is on the track/how hard or soft the tire is/how much grip is available, etc. By understanding this, it is EASY to see how these incredible machines can each be worth $3 million dollars.

Where was the first place to hold a Motocross race?

Most people believe that motocross started after World War II, but the sport actually originated in England as cross-country races known as scrambles around 1920. It just wasn't called motocross back then. The first movement towards motocross is credited to have taken place at Camberley, Surrey in 1924.

What is the minimum age for sport bike racing?

In the USA, riders can start racing 125GP bikes on full size tracks with WERA at age 10, and with the USGPRU (United States Grand Prix Riders Union) at age 12. In the UK and Spain you have to be 14 to ride 125s in the national series, BSB and CEV respectively. In Australia you have to be 16, which is why Casey Stoner went to the UK to continue his career in road racing.

Is a YZ250F motocross bike good for a 13-year old that's 5'7 and weighs 125lbs?

A YZ250F may be a little too tall and too heavy for a 13-yr. old. If you're serious about developing skills, the better choice would be a 125cc two-stroke MX bike. The reason is that the four-stroke (YZ250F) is too easy to learn bad habits such as sitting down when you should be standing up, using engine braking instead of wheel braking, and not using the clutch properly. The two-stroke (YZ125) demands to be ridden aggressively and skillfully. If you're not in the right gear, the engine falls flat. If you don't use the clutch, the engine dies. It also teaches you the importance of maintaining corner speed. Even if you don't intend to race, the two-stroke is 35-40lbs. lighter than the four-stroke. That's a big difference, especially for someone your size and age. If you think that the maintainence on a four-stroke is less, you're wrong. If you are just going to trail ride, the best choice would be something like the Honda 230F. It's much lighter than the 250F, has electric start, is much better suited to trail ridiing (suspension settings, quicker steering, etc.), and it's an air-cooled four-stroke (less maintainence). It also costs less. Again, it's all about what you're going to do with it and/or how good you want to get. The 125 two-stroke is the best learning tool, but only if you're serious. The 230F is a great playbike, but it is a little underpowered. The 250F looks good in the truck, but it's just too big and heavy for you now. Honda 150r (the big wheel version) 4 strokes dominate 2 strokes. It's an excellent bike and I strongly recommend it. Answer im 14 an i got my yz250f at 13 at only 5'5 an i weigh 132 i had lil truble at first but i race it fine now. i also have a yz85. so im saying if u no how to ride well u should b ok cuz ur 2 inches taller then me lol. a 250f is way to tall for you if you are just 5' 7". i would recomend either a honda crf 150 but i would just wait a little longer until your 5' 9" and get yz/cr 125. the YZ series owns over a four stroke 150, also its the same frame size as a yfz 250 but ways alot less. im 14 and got a yz 125 when i was 13 at about 5' 8.5" DO NOT GET ONE UNTIL YOUR AT LEAST 5' 9". my buddy was 5' 8.5" at 12 and was racing a cr125 and landed a jump wrong we wasnt big enough for his bike, long story short he broke his whole shoulder left arm and 1 rib. Haha your friend must be a goon.I ride a250 4 stroke and a 250 2 stroke. I am 5' 6" and weigh 165. You can ride at any height its just skill.

How safe is motocross racing for young boys?

If you couldn't get hurt, then dirt biking wouldn't be fun anymore. My add to the previous reply... It is safe when a child races within his ability with proper training from a qualified individual. Racing in a competitive class as a novice is where I have seen most kids get hurt due to lack of experience and preparation. Too often a parent buys a 12 year old an 85cc bike and puts him in competition after only a few practices. That is scary.

What is a superbike?

A superbike would be a Yamaha YZFr1, Honda CBR1000, Suzuki GSXR1000, Kawasaki Ninja.. I just Mentioned some the the litre bikes but several of the manufacturers offer 600's and 750's that are very powerful bikes but you have to get into the high RPM range to juice the power out of them. If you are doing triple digits after just a brief twist of the throttle, you are on a superbike.

What is the Difference between motogp and superbike?

World Superbikes are based on production motorcycles. They have to be homologated to be allowed to race in the series. That means that the manufacturer must have made and sold a certain number of the streetbike to the public before they can use it in the series - cuurently that number is 1000. From 2010 it will be increased to 3000.

MotoGP on the other hand is the "Formula 1" of motorcycle racing. The machines are not in any way production based, they are special purpose-built racing machines.

World superbike currently allows 1000cc engines for multi-cylinder machines and 1200cc for 2-cylinder machines with some additional restrictions. This increase in capacity was instituted to allow the Ducati 1098 to be included in the series.

MotoGP has previously been limited to 500cc 2-stroke engines, then 1000cc 4-stroke engines, and now is 800cc 4-stroke.

In general, the level of technology in MotoGP is some years ahead of SBK and the machines are a lot faster.
