Moriwaki Racing VTR 1000

After speaking with a Moriwaki Engineering rep. He told he that 130-140 HP is about what the racing bikes were putting out.

You can do the same...All it takes is money!

Re: Moriwaki Racing VTR 1000

Mods that wouldn't make the bike very streetworthy I'm thinking. I've looked through the VTR registry and seen guys making in the almost 120 range with cams, pistons, advanced ignition, and full exhaust. Seems crazy to me as the SH chassis really isn't meant for all that power. If you are going to spend that much $$ why not just start with an RC51 which comes with 120+ rwhp and has the chassis to stand up to quite a bit more power.

Re: Moriwaki Racing VTR 1000

One of German tuning shops offers 5-staged tuning for engine, do not rememeber by heart but something like stage1 +10 bhp, stage 2 another 5 bhp on top, then another 7 bhp and full-scale is 130 bhp and 125 NM at rear wheel.
Chassis are not such a problem if you put some decent upgrades on, like front from Blade, JMC or Mechmatex swingarm or just bracing, heavy-duty mount for swingarm, and reat shock abosrber need change anyway.
Of course you can not expect it to be superb, but it'll cope - there is a lot of exaggeration about flexibility of chassis....while ago some tests were published where old OLD bikes chassis rigidity been compared to new New, and they found that difference was way less than manufacturers claim. Of course they did not compare Blade to VMAx, but old blade to new, old ZZRs and ZX to new etc.
I spoke to guys that put their RSVs and Hawks through this German tune-up - they say this company can even sell you complete ready-to-roll engine..but noitice that they do bore out cylinders to something like 1120 cc but: they even giving you 1 year warranty on their work!!!
Now - only problem is to find that URL they sent me...
Ah, here we go: http://www.thiel-motoren.de/Start.htm

Yeah man , look ,pulled from the site

VTR1000F Stage 1A to 3 110 – 150 BHP. A truly great riding experience. The Stage 3 was raced by Mark Ditchfield and “guest” raced by Gus Scott in British Superbikes. This was reported in Performance Bikes as ‘a fantastic ride’. This is truly a great bike.

I know we live in days of 170hp superbikes on the showroom floors but taking and personalizing a sweet Superhawk , does it get any better ?
