Suppression of Burst Oscillations in Racing Motorcycles

Abstract:

Burst oscillations occurring at high speed, and under firm acceleration, can be 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 firm-acceleration at high speed. Under accelerating conditions, the wobble-mode frequency (of the subject motorcycle) decreases, while the weave mode frequency increases so that destabilizing interactions can occur. The design analysis is ba...
