Straight up Makis....I hope to get into the paddock and garage this year at Indy. Those bikes are works of art.

I know they do in F1, but I bet HRC would not let you have used motor oil from these engines.
For some, the particulates in the oil an be analyzed for alloys used in the engines.

Good stuff, I caught that on another forum as well (Honda posted that on June 19th, FWIW, so it's pretty recent). Learned quite a bit after reading through every section on the RC-V211-213 at that URL.


Additionally, for Fireblade fans, there's a similar one entitled "Honda Adds History to CBR1000RR Site" (went live back on March 26th of this year):

I have some RCV pictures from the 2011 Motegi event. I'll see if I can dig them out... :D

Here they are...Some pics for you Makis! :)

They were "just" display bikes so maybe dis-used spare machines or something like that, but they looked pretty damn special anyways. Below are pics of 2 different RCV 212's (I didn't make a note of which pics belong to which bike - sorry (Also got some of Yamaha VZR M1's if anybody wants to see.

Another Honda. Gone, but so fondly remembered... (Simoncelli went on to get 4th at Motegi 2011, after having got a ride-through penalty for jumping the start).
Here he leads Andrea Dovizioso.

Don't really have many good pics of the actual race, as we were only on a grandstand.
Besides, Moto GP has much better images, etc on their site for members ;)

Those Brembo calipers are made of forged lithium-aluminum alloy with titanium pistons.
Not only are they 60% lighter than aluminum monoblocks, they are also 60% stiffer.
They cost around $7000 per caliper. They are wider the a usual caliper due to the reinforced-carbon-carbon (RCC) pads that go with the RCC rotors.
