Online forum's are deffinatly out of the question as you may arouse conflict amoungst other individuals within the site for no apparent reasons. Rehabilitation is serious and should be taken as such. Patiants not following these strick guidlines should be highly aware of unforseen consequenses due to such nature of these activites.

The patiants ability to guide oneself through a thorough conversation may be limited and also dangerous to one's reputation and popularity within that site.The patiant may also experience an irrefutable urge to understand and possibly even try to make sence of a subject when no experience is obvious or experienced by said patiant.

I hope you didn't spend lots of time spell checking that mess! I would try to read it, but I couldn't make out most of the words. Anyway, I still never got an answer as to why one 1000cc four sound so much different than another, so I guess maybe I need to ask someone that actually knows what they are talking about. In the meantime, we can debate the Big Bang theory?? LOL

"There's a pretty cool article in the November Cycle World about it."

Not cool to direct him there Ken.

Maybe you should read it then, so YOU can understand it!

Ok, here's what the article in the December, not November, Cycle World says: "The usual 180 degree crank stops and then accelerates all four pistons every 180 degrees, with the two inner and two outer psitons rising and falling in pairs. This creaes large inertial energy pulses spaced evenly, every 180 degrees. But just as the uneven firing swquence of a V_Twen engine helps a flat-track racebike have better traction exiting corners on dirt, so too does the unevenness of the crossplane crank help the M1/R1 rear wheel maintain better traction when acceleratin off a turn on a paved surface. Although the 90 degree design doesn't increase torque, the better sense of traction it offers the rider can give the R1 an edge in the Open-class wars."

And if you don't keep rows of motorcycle magazines that you'll never read again in your shelves, here's an online article:

Well, I understood it long before you even knew what it was. You called it the Big Bang Theory in a previous post where you said I was sarcastic. You thought I was speaking of the Big Bang Theory of evolution. That much was clear. After you found out what I was really speaking of, you then attempted to act like you knew what it was all along. Not a big deal, but you really didn't know what I was speaking about because you sensed sarcasm when I was actually speaking about an engine firing configuration that you had no idea existed. This is why I ask questions, get answers, and learn. No need to throw hissy fits and hurl insults. Pretty simple really.

So it turns out that the R1 does have a different firing configuration! Now that would make it sound differently and really was the answer to my very first question as to why it would sound different than the others. You got the answer and you don't even race em and sell em Ken!

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

That's why it sounds different.
