Pretty good Miles
Gaining 2 bhp is like loosing around 6kg
as optimum power to weight is roughly 2.9kg/bhp

I'm hoping last seasons fairing weighed 10kg and the chain was sapping 5bhp.


It's not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, but the size of the fight in the dog.

5hp in a chain sounds optimistic, but anyone got a realistic figure for difference from 'o'ring to low friction chain???

Work the chain hard on the sighting lap and its soon up to temperature thereby equalling the friction of non 'O' Ring or thereabouts.
