When I use my translation program on testastretta, I get "squeezes one's will!" I know these bikes can make you squeeze something else, but can someone give me a better translation? Squeezing the valve angle makes some sense I suppose.
Seeing the tittle made me think about the following...and i know its pobably impossible or nicely expensive. but given a larger air box, how would a pair of testastretta heads fit on the old 916 series crank case, or if at all possible on one of the various cyclinders, then the non-shower intake system.
i don't the the cylinder sizes or stroke on any of the newer model 03 and up, if i did and knew stud spacing, its likely i wouldn't have posted.
Stretta is actually the past tense of the verb Stringere = To tighten.
But TestaStretta translates better as 'Narrow head', relating to the valve angle which is narrower than the old head which I suppose could be 'TestaLarga' (Wide Head) and much more polite than Testa di Cazzo (D**k Head)
