Talk on torque and power

Interesting article on our local motorrad site for those that didn't do engineering.

That was a good article. When I was finished I looked around the website and found some interesting reading in their "forums" section. If you have the time it might be worth a look. Now if I could just figure out what some of them were talking about.

"A group exploiting the general public's poor understanding of the basic principles are the aftermarket manufacturers of air filters, exhaust systems, engine management chips and other contraptions designed to liberate cash from your wallet. While nothing sounds sweeter than some of the aftermarket exhausts (which for me is reason enough to part with hard-earned cash), the wild claims of huge beneficial effect on torque are all blatant lies. In fact the opposite is often true but this is another discussion."


I love it!
