We'd used an R6 engine back in the day - does it not conform to their rules anymore?

Hi fellow SAE Members,

Similar risks with say the Mumbai-Kurla market. If you know the right contact here, i have been told you can get whatever you want - legally-illegally

Best option is buying the entire bike from olx - If you are lucky you might source the same. Don't constraint yourself to a particular city though.

Safest and cost efficient option - Abundance of parts available. There are some tuners that can turn this engine into a rocket even with the restrictor provided you can build a light car.

610 cc is the limit for SUPRA SAE India. (I graduated in 2017, so these were the figures when I was designing the car)
My team used a KTM 390 cc engine though.

I believe that Redrooster in Coimbatore has a great set of maps for the CBR 600.
I'm sure even Spitfire has a trick or two up his sleeve.

I know some rival teams which used to import engines from somewhere in UK, but I don't know any more details about that.
That will be the last option for us. But, as you know, it'll cost a lot.

Pravega is a great team and your seniors would have contacts for sure. I'm wondering why you are posting here.
Finding a CBR 600 RR has always been a big headache for the team. All the contacts in India have been used up to buy the previous engines. We just want the engine and not the remaining salvage parts, which is the main issue.

Quote:
If you want an engine for testing purposes, buy it from a rival team- there's a great risk associated with buying engines from rival teams though- nobody knows what the engine has been put through.
Us being one of the teams, will never rely on other teams for an engine!

EDIT: You can get one from service centers from bikes which have been totalled. Try your luck
We are trying to do that. No luck so far.

I will look into this place. Thanks for the heads up!

Again a viable option. Will look into it.

It has been upped to 710 cc in Formula Student for now!

Thanks for all the inputs. Any more help is highly appreciated.
