faffi Posted October 17, 2010 Report Share Posted October 17, 2010 If you look at old videos from the 500cc GP era when high-sides were common, this was mostly described as a problem due to tyres having too much grip for the chassis above them and also because they had a very narrow window between grip and no grip. Add the violent way the power kicks in on a 500 two-stroke, especially during the '80s and early '90s, and one can understand they were riding on a knife's edge. My question is; would highsides have been fewer and perhaps less violent if Code's principles had been used by all riders and why! - or would it have little influence upon this issue?
