And only somewhat related, SJBMW's F800S MOTO-ST GST class entry for the Daytona 8 hour next month faces this daunting 4-man team:

http://www.richiemorrisracing.com/News.html
Higbee Back on the Bike in Daytona

17 Sep 07 Elkhart Lake, WI - Shawn Higbee will be back on the RMR / Daytona H.D. Buell at the Suntrust 8 hours at Daytona race. Dave Estok will also join Dan Bilansky and Clint Brotz to round out a 4 rider team.

Higbee, who was seriously injured at Iowa Speedway on July 14th, has progressed much faster than expected. “A month ago I would have never dreamed of having this conversation. I truly felt Shawn would be out until next season. He is tough and determined, so I have to admire that. It is great news for the team and Higbee fans” stated Morris.

--------------------
Nate, Higbee, Bilansky and of course Estok have put on some great ASRA shows in the last couple seasons. And obviously it's great to hear of Higbee doing so well this soon. There for a few hours in July, I thought his life might be over, much less his racing career.

My highlight was watching Nate win the Expert Thunderbike by 20+ seconds.

Can anyone estimate what lean angle N8 achieved in this picture versus the angle at which you get valve.

I believe it to be ~54deg 30min 59sec. If the picture is to scale.

All I know is that if you can read the writing on the other side of the bike, like on some of those photos, it must be a lot.

N8 is obviously hauling some serious booty! I have some questions about the bike though. What is up with the silver rear drive? is it a higher ratio for more top speed? What is the scoop with the headers? they look to be some kind of 2 piece unit. why does the Remus race exhaust have a license plate bracket? and lastly is that the AC Schnitzer belly pan?

Nate puts different final drives on depending on the track. Like Daytona you want a high gear ratio because the track is a power track. If you put a high gear ratio final drive on a bike and go out and run a tight track with lots of turns, and not many straights. Than you aint going to be as fast as you can. So Nate just gets whatever final drive he needs, and I'm sure he could care less about colour. Its kind of like sprockets, but more expensive, and not as easy to find the correct one for a surtein track.

Quote:

They are a three-piece exhaust if I'm not mistaken. My guess, so if something is damaged, you don't have to replace the whole exhaust. You can just replace sections at a time. To save a little money. But being titanium exhaust pipes, you still are spending a lot of money for it.

At Road American in July, Friday I believe it was. Nate was behind a 600cc rocket. Going to the main straight. He was lying on the tank 6th gear full throttle. The person in front of him missed a gear and Nate slammed in the back of him. Thank god for those wonderful cylinder heads, or Nate would of been seriously injured. The exhaust pipe was hit good. Completely flatten a section. Like someone put it on the ground and hit it with a hammer a couple time to flatten it out.

Remus Exhaust
Nate might of just gotten the street version, and not the race. Thoses thing are EXPENSIVE. And Nate doesn't have a huge budget.

I don't Believe so...

uhmm....N8? here is my take: the multiple piece exhaust header gives the opportuinity to take the top end off without removing the total exhaust and belly pan etc. the license bracket seems to be inconsistent, because some of those pics show an exhaust without it, the final drive is silver because it is off a specific bike and therefore a specific ratio, and lastly the belly pan is an AC Schnitzer from all i can tell. I would love some feedback from either N8 himself or Chris from SJBMW, because they know the bike!

Hey there shreddr and PP gang. The belly pan is AC Schnitzer, the exhaust is a great system from Remus and it is all titanium. They all come with the bracket on the bottom except the prototype I first tested as I recall. The headers andthe rest of the system I beleive is 3 peice (can, mid pipe and headers, so I guess 4 peice), I dunno, I never put them on. I guess you can say I just ride em, lol. I screwed up putting gas in it once! Oh yeah, that is an RT final drive. It works best at VIR, allows me to have a little more top end, but mostly keeps me off the rev limiter while knee on the deck coming up to T3.
With the S drive it is just off the rev limiter at full lean in 3rd gear and drops the head and gets a little loud, while not going north! I need to keep the momentum going, but 4th gear is just to muc going into T3.
No milk crate full of sprockets, but thats ok, we give it to em good!

TTYouseL,

N8!

Um Shreddr,..........we "BMW Motorcycles of Atlanta" know Nate's bikes. Look closely and you'll see our stickers on the top right. We're the only ones to touch Nate's bikes with a tool these days (wrench, computer or dyno).

SJBMW knows the MotoST and their "bomb" bike and use their own race hybrid body work and belly pan.

I'm not sure there's a lot to be gained by completely outing the specifics of Nates bike. It's fast....leave it at that.
my 2cents.
