    Read the Stickies Folks!


    First they made learners restricted by capacity 250cc
    now they made learners restricted by kw

    does capacity=power "no" took them 30 years to figure that out
    now does kw=power "no"

    or does ( kw+torque-weight = power )

    so when is the new restricted LAMS comming in effect, and what if we are a fat rider do we get to ride higher power bikes then skinny people?
  2. I have to pay extra for a 5kg overweight bag on Qantas, whilst some slob is carrying more than my total baggage in one arse cheek, for no extra charge! Some shit just isn't fair, so don't think that you should be allowed more power because you're packing pudding. Maybe just get a bike you have to pedal for a while first. :LOL:
  3. I'm not too sure about your formulas, but here in vic it's taken as bike weight plus 90kg to account for rider, so if your below that, you're ahead.

    I can't find the formulas they used at the moment, but:

    My CX500 weighs 216kg, claimed, & 36.5 kw

    So: 216 + 90 = 306, that's our weight.

    1000 (1 ton) / 306 = 3.27. Times our kw by 3.27 & you're there, 119.355 kw per ton.

    Hope this helps?

    P.S. RAMS?
  4. have another cone, you might make more sense then.

    nice to know you can apply maths, and what state you are in as well.
    bye bye thread!
