Ducati street quad 1000cc - Made by Eicker
Ducatie street quad 1000cc. Made by Eicker. incredible fast and the
handling is even better! The bike has a Need for speed! You dont see this
in the movie, because the engine is just been overhauled. Maby in the
future a better film with more speed and power!
Dean on the r1 raptor in St. Maarten
Here is a short vid of Dean tearing up the R1 raptor while I was there on
vacation. Thanks Dean for one hell of a good time riding around the island.

RAPTOR 700R, SPECIAL EDITION. QUADWAYDOWN.
My Raptor 700r was used for my project Quad Way Down London to Marbella.
It's a beast, i loved riding this bike the 3000kms. Videos will be in
process of edit. They will be soon available to watch here very soon. Keep
it locked. Also join the QUADWAYDOWN you tube channel. Also check out
QUADWAYDOWN on facebook. Many Thanks Paul v.
R1 raptor 700 frame Montana
heres a quick video of my 07 raptor 700 with a 07 yamaha r1 engine in it.
sorry the video is so shaky. this was the first time using a GoPro and i
didn't mount it good. a buddy and I built this quad in my garage. where im
from we can ride atvs on the street..

me on my new 700.
not run in yet so ave to take it easy.
hear the wastegate chatter and the dumpvalve!!?
Yamaha YZF R1 crossplane crankshaft technology explained
The crossplane or cross-plane is a crankshaft design for V8 engines with a
90° angle between the cylinder banks. The crossplane crankshaft is the
configuration used in most V8 road cars.3d model of a cross-plane
crankshaft demonstrating the 90 degree angle between the crank throws and
the large counter weights.The crossplane crankshaft has four crankpins,
each offset at 90° from the adjacent crankpins. The first and last of the
four crank pins are at 180° with respect to each other as are the second
and third, with each pair at 90° to the other, so that viewed from the end
the crankshaft forms a cross. The crankpins are therefore in two planes
crossed at 90°, hence the name crossplane. A crossplane crank may have up
to five main bearings, and usually does, as well as large balancing
weights. Crossplane V8 engines have uneven firing patterns within each
cylinder bank, producing a distinctive burble in the Exhaust note, but an even firing pattern
overall. Their second-order balance, owing to the 90° bank angle and 90°
throws, means no additional balance shaft is necessary to achieve greater
smoothness. Without the 90° bank angle, a balance shaft may be required.
The other prominent design for a V8 crankshaft is the flatplane crankshaft,
with all crankpins in the same plane and the only offset 180°. Early V8
engines, modern racing engines and some others used or use the flatplane
crankshaft, which is similar to that used in a straight four or flat-four
engine. Flatplane V8 engines may use any angle between the cylinder banks,
with 60° and 90° the most common. They lack the V8 burble and the
superior mechanical balance of the crossplane design, but do not require
the large crankshaft balancing weights. Inherent balance of the big ends is
like a straight four, and modern designs often incorporate a balance shaft
for smoothness. But without balance shafts, flatplane designs have the
least flywheel effect of any V8s, which allows them to be more
The crossplane design was first proposed in 1915, and developed by Cadillac
and Peerless, both of whom produced flatplane V8s before introducing the
crossplane design. Cadillac introduced the first crossplane in 1923, with
Peerless following in 1924.
Inline-4 engines can also use the crossplane concept. The 2009 Yamaha
YZF-R1 motorcycle uses the crossplane crankshaft and, in the absence of the
90° bank angle of the V8, must use a separate balance shaft geared off the
crankshaft to eliminate the inherent vibration (a primary rocking couple)
found in this type of crank.
A crossplane crank has been used in Yamaha's M1 MotoGP racing models in the
past. Yamaha claims advances in metal forging technologies make this a
practical consumer product.
