Honda CBR 600RR exhaust gases

  1. Nov 10, 2008 #1
    Hi

    I'm trying to find a value for the density of the exhaust gases emitted from a Honda CBR600 motorcycle engine with not much luck. I only need an approximate value so the density from a similar engine would suffice...

    Can anyone help?

    Is your engine carburated or have fuel injection? Does it have O2 sensors on the exhaust and a temp sensor on the intake?

    Treating the fluid as air at the exhaust temperature will give you a good approximation.

    I don't actually have the engine, I'm doing a design project on an after-market exhaust for my Uni's Formula Student car which uses that engine and wanted to do some pretty basic fluid mechanics on the outlet.

    Treating the fluid as air at the exhaust temperature will give you a good approximation.

    thanks, I'll try that.

    Most of the superbike engines have lambda sensors to detect the fuel/air ratio. It should shed some light on the density of the exhaust gases too.

    What are you wanting to achieve with your design project?
