hi,

i'm from germany and i'm forced by law to rape my little 6r'03 by reducing its power to 25kw (34 horsepower).
in germany it's called "drosselung" i don't know the english expression but i think you know what i mean. [8D]

as far as i know it's reduced by stopping some valves in an particular position, that the engine doesn't get enough fuel or something like that!

my question: is there any way to loosen this "reduction" a bit, so that it gets a little more fuel... or whatsoever...

because at 10rpm she cries like hell but doesn't pull anymore - its a pain in the ass!

thanks in advice and excuse my bad english! :D

I don't mean to be harsh but WTF!!

Go and buy a 250, why fuck around with something with a hell of a lot more power than 25kW. My lawn mower has more power. I mean for fucksake, you just spent a shit load of money on a 'sportsbike' and now you are made by law to reduce its power. I know that sucks but if the law will not allow you to ride anything with more power than 25kW why spend money on a real bike, sure they look good, but what good will looks do if there is no go.
Take the 'restrictor' plates off, throw them away, sell the bike, buy a fucken scooter, learn to ride then get a full or open class licence and buy a new ZX6R. Its that simple.

Your English is that bad :D

Like I said, I don't mean to be harsh and I am sorry if I have offended you.

Now for some bad German, I am not sure on the spelling: "essen my shiza" (eat my shit!!)

I dont mean to be offensive, but corbywan is out of line..
Your country has done that for a reason, to help save lives of inexperienced riders.

If you really want to get a little more power, you might be able to gain a bit with a better exhaust system, or you can change out the rear sprocket. If you want a little better acceleration, get a rear sprocket that has a couple more teeth on it, like 42 or 43. If you want more top speed, put a smaller rear sprocket on, like 38 teeth.
If you go the smaller sprocket route, make sure you keep your origional one too, because once your allowed to make your bike full power again, you'll hate the smaller sprocket.

Who shit in corby's cornflakes???

Relax.......laws are laws....and probably the 250 ninja would too, be restricted......nice try though.

Depending on how the actual restriction is done, would determine as to where things could be loosened.

How do they know if its 34 horsepower and not 35? Do they actually dyno it? I'm suprised the thing will actually run being restricted that much.

Man that really sucks some serious ass. I am glad we don't have any laws that restrict us on HP for our bikes. As for corbywan, dude that was rude of you, how about showing some respect for other people. The dude was just asking for advice and now probably feels like shit cause he was offended. Anyways rookee good luck with your bike, keep us posted.

Rookee...

My advice to you is to figure out what was added to your bike to restrict the hp, and then remove or disable it. It should be fairly easy to do, since it is not menat to be a permanent change, just until you gain your full license.

Restrictors are usually done in several different ways. Most common is a device that would disable several of the cylinders. Chances are that would be in the electrical wiring, somewhere. Maybe even built into the igniter box from the factory, and is activated by a fuse.

A second way would be to disable the fuel. On a bike with carbs, this is difficult to achieve. A bike with Fuel Injection, its fairly easy. Just disrupt the cycle of the fuel injectors, similiar to the spark interruption mentioned above.

The third way would be to interrupt the air supply, which is much more difficult.

So I would look over your bikes wiring system, find any devices that were added, and pull them out. Then your bike will be back to full power.

BC.

OK, maybe I was a little out of line. It was not aimed at Rookee, and Rookee I am sorry if you have been offended, that was not my intention. It was however, aimed at the stupid laws that force Rookee and others to reduce the power output of their motorcycles.
Just like straycat40 asked, how do they measure the output?
If you are pulled over by the police how do they know if your bike has a power output over 25kW?



"Who shit in corby's cornflakes" LOL - thanks badassjake

here in germany everyone who is younger than 25 has to make the "small" license and is allowed to ride bikes up to 25kw for two years... after that we can ride everything too!
i'm 20 years old and have to do the shit to my bike!

nevertheless, i could go let the parts be taken out, but if the police controls me, or i'm involved into an accident or something, then they will take a look at the bike and i'll get a big kick because of insurance fraud, tax evasion and driving without licence. [xx(]
i just wanted to know wheter i could adjust it to 27 or 28 kw what also could have been out-provided.

@corby: imagine you would be only allowed to ride with 25kw... would you rather want sit on a scooter or on a 6r both with similarly power?!

ps: top speed of my little 25kw ninja is 205kmh (~127 mph) [^] i think the scooter would not do it!

rookee,

Just out of interest...
Do you know if they remap the FI after "choking" the bike?
It's something they do in Finland as well (the younger riders)..
Haven't seen a choked 6r here though.. More of the Hornets and Yam R6:s :)

In Austrlaia they have a few rules in relation to Learners and what bikes they can and cant ride. In most parts of OZ you have to ride a 250 cc or less on your learners then you get your Probation licence and for 1 year you have to stay with a 250 then you can get whatever you like. But in at least one state it goes by your weight. So if your a big fatty you could get a 6r for your learners ;)

I must say its a litte ammusing that the Germans make your ride a 25kw bike for 2 years but let cars go as fast as they want on the autoways.

that's exactly what i think!
my dad's got an audi rs6 (it's around 330kw) and sometimes i take it too and already went 290kmh (~ 180mph) with it!
but i'm NOT allowed to ride my "opened" 6r for 2 years! it's fucking nuts!

yes, kw (kilowatt) is something like horse power.
1 kw = 1,36 horse power

25kw = 34hp
330kw = 458hp ;)
