Pretty sure that is the only con of a blata. Having the water pump inside the case.
Yea but how often do you need on on that? Probably less often than changing out engine gaskets. So while you were doing that might as well change the seals out too. Not a big deal really.Well normally you wouldn't let the bike sit idling for long periods of time. And if you need to replace the seals or bearings you have to take the whole engine apart.
I really enjoy making my stuff look nice, painting is my favorite part. So it's gonna look amazing eventually. The color is just what I can't decide on right now.Do it Brett, I'll take functionality over beauty any day of the week!
As far as I know the epoxy you get for fiberglass should work just fine on the carbon fiber.
Well, I'm just using the fiberglass to cover up chips and some small cracks, so nothing really structural. I'll check out what this guy has to say about repairing it. But yea, the carbon fiber stuff is expensive :/Are you talking about this F1 car.(down below). If so then I DEFIANTLY agree with you on the paint job. In my opinion you are just changing the material that you are using to fix the body. So my guess is that the fiberglass kit would work fine. But the carbon fiber is probably stronger. But that is just my best guess. So I was just looking up how to repair carbon fiber with fiberglass repair kit and I saw this.
It is about a bike frame but it is carbon fiber. He said the carbon fiber "yarn" or whatever was $45 bucks a foot. I would just read it and see what you think.
A Formula1 car, they are amazing, I think 2,000cc and 750 horsepower or so. I don't like all the electronics on the F1 stuff, or any race car, push button shifting, why not put a computer that drives the car too, lol. I would make them all 5 or 6 speed manual transmissions, like Nascar, then we could see who can really Man Up, lol. Now racing is who has the most Money!!!
1600cc V6 turbos this year. I love the F1 guys. All drivers qualifying times are usually within about a second or two of each other, and the top ten are usually just separated by tenths! On tracks that are 3-5 miles long with 15+ turns, having times that close are amazing. I do wish they got rid of ABS and a few other aids, more likens what the racing in the early 2000s, but F1 is still amazing. I don't mind NASCAR when they are doing the two road courses, but outside of that, I'd hardly say the manual shifting matters, once they are up to speed they don't have to touch the gears, maybe downshift once in awhile to pass or out of a corner, but nothing like the rally guys, they are impressive! But it is all money, and that will never change in racing.A Formula1 car, they are amazing, I think 2,000cc and 750 horsepower or so.
