Next time, put it in gear and let out the clutch to stall it.
A 350cc twin with Russian brakes running at 5000 RPM out of control, and you're going to put it in gear and drop the clutch?Sounds sort of sporty to me. I might do it if I thought about it and did a few calculations, but I'm not sure I'd have the nerve to try to cut one off like that! :o :o :o Lannis
Lannis, I didn't say to drop the clutch. Cheesy I doubt if it was really making much power or it would have revved higher than 5,000, so easing out the clutch like when taking off should stall it.
And then we have the story of the two-stroke that ran backwards. Oh well. :pop :BEER:Matt
Sometime it is just evil spirits controling the engine. If prayer and fasting don't help you may have to resort to exorcism.
The two-stroke mini cars in Britain with the 197cc Villiers engines got reverse that way.
The two-stroke mini cars in Britain with the 197cc Villiers engines got reverse that way. To reverse, you shut the engine off, threw a switch to change the ignition timing and starter direction, and started the motor backwards.That's where the software developers learned how to change a "bug" into a "feature"!Lannis
Yeah, it is quite cool that you can run a two stroke backwards, haven't done this personally, but had friends who did it with their old mopeds. Dusty, there is nothing inherently wrong with the Russian motorbikes, as long as you know what you are doing they are Beautiful Machines to work on! The problem is usually just bad maintenance and bad quality replacement parts. And all to often they have suffered at the hand of "Piston Pete" (in Sweden we have this derogatory term for a home mechanic who doesn't know what he is doing - but somehow puts it together anyway). I have yet to see one that isn't in need of a partial or complete rebuild!
I would like to hear your experiences with this phenomenon and what might be causing it?
'Piston Pete' has an Aussie relative called 'Harry Hometune', I know him well.There really is nothing wrong with the design of Soviet era crap. It's just the manufacture that made it so tragic.Pete, (Owner of heaps of Eastern Bloc shit in the past and still having nightmares!)
