The two recommendations ( new tires on rear if only buying 2, and also regular rotations) seem to contradict one another. ntuition suggests that since the front tires wore out first and because there is still about half of the tread remaining on the rear tires , the new tires should be

Honda is having difficulties getting the most out of the new Michelin rear tires - According to technology manager, one has to deviate from previous philosophies

Honda is having a difficult MotoGP season without Marc Marquez. No podium was achieved in the first eight races. This is the longest run since the Japanese brand returned to the motorcycle world championship in 1982. In the constructors' championship, Honda is in fifth and penultimate place.

"Of course, when you have several injured drivers, it is difficult from many aspects," says technical manager Takeo Yokoyama. "Alex is a rookie, but he's growing and giving us good feedback. Cal also tries a lot despite his injury and gives us good feedback."

Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive

  Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive The average Josephine on the street can’t afford to step into most electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted. “Our cars are not affordable enough,” Musk said during his second-quarter earnings call in July. “We need to fix that.” Electric cars and crossovers remain far too expensive to be daily commuters for the middle- and working-classes, who in congested urban areas, at least, may be turning to e-bikes instead, an electric segment in which U.S. sales spiked 92-percent in April and 137-percent in May, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

There is some pressure on the new rear brakes because there is visible ware on the new rotors. The only way I can see you still not getting pressure, is if you have one of the following: 1. No vacuum.

Problem #1 is that brakes can only supply in total about one G of opposing force. In the context of the 80Gs that’s going to kill you, it’s fairly insignificant. But this really doesn’t matter because there’s an even bigger problem for you, in the cabin. Problem #2: The car’s going to accelerate forward

"At Taka everyone can see how much they have improved. He's fighting for good results. It's difficult, but we have good feedback and we are doing our best." Nakagami is the only driver in the field who finished in the top 10 in all eight races.

Much like Ducati, Honda was caught off guard by Michelin's new rear tire construction. "We have to change more than we thought," admits Yokoyama. Honda has been working in this area since the start of the season.

"Other manufacturers," says Stefan Bradl, "can use this tire better. I would say that KTM is one of them. Honda is definitely not. We are still having problems finding an optimal set-up for this tire."

2021 Honda ADV150 Scooter Review MC Commute

  2021 Honda ADV150 Scooter Review MC Commute 2021 Honda ADV150 Scooter Review MC CommuteEditor’s Note: In the state of California operating the ADV150 requires an M1 motorcycle endorsement. It cannot be operated on the freeway due to its engine size (less than 150cc).

This tubeless conversion can be done with 3m tape which ran me £43 from 3m direct for two 5 metre rolls which is enough to do about 3-4 wheels, depending how careful you are with it. Never used 5200 huh? When you subtract the weight of the rim strip and tube you're way ahead either way.

"We have to adapt the bike and consider ideas that were never possible before. It is now our main problem is that we have no grip on the rear tire - neither when entering or exiting a corner. "

There was a day of testing between the two Misano races. This was very useful for Honda because you could make progress. "If you compare Misano 1 with Misano 2, then we've made progress," nodded Yokoyama.

"We're mainly working on how to get the most out of the new rear tire. I don't think we're getting the most out of the tire. We have to change the bike in several areas and also deviate from our traditional philosophy."

The engine development is frozen. Honda has to continue with the engine from this season next year. Is that a disadvantage? "If you have the freedom to develop the engine, that's another aspect," says Yokoyama.

"It's not just about performance, it's about handling and drivability. If engine development is frozen, it is more difficult to solve problems. But we have many other options for improving performance."
