Anyone know of an easy way to make my 2010 ER6-f quicker?
You are welcome, hmm, a four-cylinder of roughly the same displacement may disappoint you after the torquey Er, you will have to rev it quite high in order to feel the extra power and it will probably feel hollow and less potent in the lower rev range. It is definitely faster on a straight line though, but not as satisfying, for instance when exiting corners.Okay I thought as much, what do you think about the new CBR650R, they have a little bit more power? thanks for the reply and the info
Definitely different soundtrack indeed but if you are looking for that four-cylinder howl, again you will need to rev the engine quite high so you can enjoy both the sound and the powerOh, you have put me off a little now lol. I thought it would be better all round for some reason. One of the things I don't like about the ER6's is it being a twin cylinder, they just don't produce the same note as a four. I felt it was too quiet so I put on an aftermarket exhaust but then felt it was too loud and again it doesn't produce that distinctive racey sound compared to four cylinders...
I have to say what a well written explanation it's brilliant and you've been most helpful indeed, it's obvious you know what you're talking about, a true biker with lots of knowledge thanks again...Definitely different soundtrack indeed but if you are looking for that four-cylinder howl, again you will need to rev the engine quite high so you can enjoy both the sound and the power
Generally speaking, twin cylinders give the sensation of torque and four cylinders the feel of elasticity. That Honda has been retuned for midrange torque but it is impossible to change the characteristics of an engine layout completely, so I guess it would be better to test ride it first!
