Dakar/Rallyraid question.
« on: December 30, 2018, 12:54:30 pm »
Does anyone know if a pickup has ever been installed on the rear wheel of a Dakar or rally raid bike to measure the total amount of revolutions the rear wheel does on a typical race day..It would be interesting to see the actual distance the wheel has traveled compared to the roadbook.. :lamer: :lamer:

We would have to sponsor someone for next year. It would be interesting!

Good question. Plenty of pickups on the front wheel though! And there too the mileage is less.
Rally nut. What could possibly go wrong?

Due to wheel spin the rear wheel sensor is a waste of time , front more accurate , sure when the front wheel is off the ground the sensor doesn't work accurately ,but over the Dakar they would be spinning much more than wheelying .

My question was that it would be interesting to to find out the distance the rear wheel actually travels including the wheel spin. Any wild ideas like two to four percent.???

I think it would be way more, if you could get that amount of grip on an offroad it would b magic, I dont even think a supercross bike on a well prepped track would get close to that.

GPS would give the most accurate distance measurements

I would guess way more. There is constant wheel spin....to a more or lesser degree.
