That's the part I'm afraid of.

On a side note, I went biking (the lame, non-motor type) today. I hopped on a trail because the view was great, but I got lost in the canyon. I ran out of water, and I had to power my way up a hill to see where I was. Eventually, after calling my dad and some more moving, I was able to locate a road. I got picked up, and I was immensely tired. Let me tell you, it's not fun being stranded in the sun while not knowing how to get home.

Fear will keep you alive. It will prepare you for the trials that await us all.

P.S. Glad you got rescued.

So what's the powerband like? I know that with inline 4s, the power is once you hit the higher revs, and that v twins have more midrange torque. Is there a point that you hit and then it accelerates insanely, or is it a more linear acceleration?

Most bikes don't have back pressure from the exhaust, so the low end torque that I love exposing in my car is not available to inline 4 bikes. Once you hit the peak power of an engine and you can still rev higher, the power slightly starts going down.

Take a look at this dyno sheet of a KA24DE, the same engine that is in my car:



See how the HP and the Torque start going down once the peak point is passed? Same rule applies to all engines. Also, take note of the rev limit. There is no further power available once you hit the limit.

From what I've heard, most inline 4 bikes hit a certain point, and then they go a lot faster.
