Experiments on Free Flow Exhaust.





I am working on this free flow exhaust system from long time. This is my new invention. The canister is suitable for 150 to 200cc machines.
the system is equipped with controller which is basically manual valve. Which can be set for high RPM. The canister is not calculated as per required CFM. Neither it is calculated for proper back pressure or flow velocity. So to achieve that I have made the valve to control the back pressure. The system worked very fine and perfect with great awesome sound but only on 10 to 200cc machines. When I did test on 220cc machine it was worst...The control or the valve need only one time setting. Can be set only when motorcycle is on test bench. The setting is depending on high rev. Once I get high rev the valve is permanently set on particular position.

High Performance Mods


As we know Indian market is fast growing market in two wheeler segment due to large amount of interest in biking. But lack of imported bikes people are interested in change in their present motorcycles. Generally people tends to change the machine from stock to high performance for either street racing, circuit racing, drag racing or for dirt purpose. Earlier some of the high performance material was not available in India due to lack of knowledge about material or because of importing it to India.

Nowadays in India there are some high performance spares available by some of the direct distributor or importers, for example K&N filters, Piper Cross, MSD Ignitions, NGK, DYNOJET, Microns, and TwoBrothers etc. The material is extremely high performance but just by putting few spares you can’t increase the performance due to lack of information. The performance is depending on channels or the way you put those spares in-line. In simple language it’s a kind of computer flow chart.

In the market some people just trying to do business for money. Anyways let’s talk about the high performance for Indian motorcycle. Let’s start from Filter, in the market you get K&N or PiperCross, LM filters or BMC filters or whatever. When rider or mechanic installs those High Free Flow Filters they generally forget or don’t change some or the other things just to avoid complications.

High Free Flow Filters means Air without any obstruction or rather than increase in Air quantity. Stock Motorcycle comes with some particular ratio of Air and Fuel. For example if the stock has got 5:1 ratio that means 5% is air and 1% is fuel. Now consider Air with Free flow filter is 10%, people always forget to increase the fuel ratio, which means fuel should be 2%. So when you are putting High Free Flow filters don’t forget to increase the ratio of Fuel by Re-Jetting.

High or low number jets are available in the market or you can get it from some local manufacturer with accurate required numbers. Dellorto/Spaco has got jets but not suitable for Mikuni or Keihin because of thread size. In Two wheeler all Indian bikes are coming with Mikuni or Keihin carbs. So make sure about thread sizes. So after Re-Jetting next step is burning all the fuel, which means change in spark plug (NGK-Ir), change in spark plug cable (MSD Ignition Cables), High performance Ignition coil for better and high voltage for burning the fuel.

Next step after plug and its cable the main and priority change in Exhaust canister, which people always forget or ignore or avoid using High Performance Free Flow exhaust canister. The reason behind free flow high performance canister is, when the intake is increased by some amount the exhaust should also go in that ratio which stock silencers can’t do. For that reason its priority to change the canister from stock to high performance (TwoBrothers, Microns, etc). In all mods the channel of modifications should be in route for good performance. So this is the main flow chart for modifications in Indian Motorcycles without tinkering much and very much easy because of external changes. For ECU controlled or EFI system and Carburetor motorcycles some of the modifications are common, But EFI needs some different modification due to its ECU, which we need to remap for high performance.

Don’t forget to work on Lubrication for better performance. In the market you might get some high performance lubes like synthetic, semi synthetic oils. Oil is the main factor in the engine for performance, wrong oil grade can decrease the performance rapidly and might damage the motor or moving parts.

Please note: Some of the imported oils are not suitable for Indian Motorcycles, they are very good for Higher CC engines. The major lag of power starts from clutch, so wrong oil can start slippage in clutch. So make sure before you buy and pour in the motor. Now lets move on to internal changes which I call COREPOWER.

The first change should be clutch springs, the main engine power transmission is through clutch so bad clutch springs or low tension springs kills the BHP, so use proper tension or some high tension clutch springs which should high tension than stock springs. The second step is nitriding of intake and exhaust valves and so the cam, which will reduce the wear and tear. Somehow if you are able to get titanium connecting rod, Valves then nothing like it, but sadly for Indian motorcycle it is still not available.

Anyway, so the next step in internal change which is Big Bore Cylinder. Change to higher size piston for big bore cylinder. After that next change should be Hard Chrome Plating on cylinder bore, which helps the piston for fast motion. The next step is increase in intake bore for better intake. After those changes you will definitely get high performance from your Indian Motorcycle.

Ride Safely And Enjoy Life

“Exploring The Unknown”

Extensive list of Motorcycle Manufactures from around the world.

List of companies currently producing and selling motorcycles available to the public, including both street and race/off-road motorcycles. Does not include badge engineered bikes sold under a different name than their producer, nor motorcycle customizes. Some of the motorcycles or the manufacturers stopped manufacturing their respective products. When I found this list I was zapped and was feeling guilty about having less knowledge about the motorcycles. Having knowledge about vehicles is a different thing but at least knowing about the products is must. In fact I found some of the products which are made in India were also unknown to me.

Performance Mod

The methods to increase H.P. in flatheads has been developed over the years, these are tried and true methods that we still use today, these methods have names that the average lay person would probably not know, below is a glossary of these methods.
PORTING, this is the grinding away of lumps, bumps and excess materiel left in the intake and exhaust ports when the engine is cast and the valve seats machined.

POLISHING, when porting a rough grinder is used, after porting the inside of the intake and exhaust ports are polished, the intake is cleaned up and smoothed but not shined, the exhaust port is cleaned up and polished to a shine.
RELIEVING, this is when material is removed from the top of the block between the intake and exhaust ports and the piston bore, serious relieving is to mill material out of the block for better flow of the gasses, mild relieving is when material is removed from the chamfers around the valves for better flow of the fuel.

HI LIFT CAM, when a cam is reground the cam grinder will take material off the bottom of the cam heel, this causes the valve to be opened higher, the profile is also changed so the valve will remain open longer, both of these changes helps put more air/fuel mixture into the engine.
STROKING, Stroking is a method of increasing the compression of an engine. Stroking is accomplished by regrinding the crankshaft at an offset, this causes the piston to come up higher in the cylinder bore thereby increasing the compression.

OVERSIZE INTAKE VALVES, the intake valve in a Champion is approximately 1 1/4 inch in diameter, I have found a valve that is 1 1/2 inch in diameter and will increase the intake flow greatly, they are of stainless steel.
DUAL CARBURETOR INTAKE MANIFOLD, these manifolds are aluminum manifolds made to hold 2 carburetors instead of 1 for better fuel distribution and increased H.P.

DUAL EXHAUST HEADERS, this is the manufacture of 2 separate exhaust headers, each header carries the exhaust gasses from 3 ports, I manufacture these headers from parts of the exhaust manifolds, at present there are no cast headers available.
IGNITION SYSTEMS, up until now there hasn't been much that you could do for a 6 volt ignition distributor, however I have just developed an electronic breakerless ignition system to fit the Autolite distributor on Champions, it is available in 6 volt positive ground and 12 volt negative ground, this will make a great improvement in the performance and dependability of the Champion engine.
