Suppression of Burst Oscillations in Racing Motorcycles

Abstract:

Burst oscillations occurring at high speed and under firm acceleration are suppressed with a mechanical steering compensator. Burst instabilities in the subject racing motorcycle are the result of interactions between the wobble and weave modes under high-speed cornering and firm-acceleration conditions. Under accelerating conditions the wobble-mode frequency decreases, while the weave mode frequency increases so that destabilizing interactions occur. The design analysis is based on a time-se...
