This Guy Used a Maserati Engine to Build a 470 HP Motorcycle
Over the years we’ve featured a lot of super cars. Well, today here’s something for our 2-wheel fans, a super bike!
Who wants to take it for a spin? 🙂
When you came across a V8 4.7L Maserati 32-valve engine most people would not think: I wonder if I can build a motorcycle around that? Clearly, most people are not Ludovic Lazareth, a custom builder and modifier of bikes and cars who is well known for his exotic designs and builds.
While he insists the Lazareth – LM 847 is ‘strictly a mechanical sculpture designed around the motorcycleâ€™s engineering,’ the 400 kg (880 lb), 475 hp beast is a sight to behold.
The body is made from polyester and carbon fiber and the specs… well the specs are insane. You can find them below along with some amazing photos of this badass motorcycle.
It’s no surprise your vehicle will drive better if all the wheels are pointed in the same direction. That’s called wheel alignment. What might you notice first if your wheels are out of alignment? Usually it’s that your vehicle pulls to one side or the other. Now, something you won’t notice right away but will if you keep driving when you’re out of alignment, is your tires are wearing unevenly and fairly quickly, and that’s not good. When your vehicle is pulling to one side, you have to steer it back straight.
Today I want to talk about your engine air filter. That’s the filter that cleans the air, before it’s burned in your engine. Pop Quiz! How often should you change your engine air filter? The simple answer is…when it’s dirty. That’s a function of how much air is passed through the filter. So the manufacturer will recommend a mileage interval for replacing the air filter, but you can imagine that how dirty the air is would affect how quickly the filter gets filled.
