But will it still be the hot rod bike of choice in France?



Inquiring minds want to know....

Default On the 8th day God created the V-Max

Great to see they are keeping God's chosen configuration. 4 cylinders provides firing order balance. The V provides the finishing touch.. On the 8th day God created the V-4 for the Inceptor and V-Max and saw that is was good. On the 9th day he smoked a Harley VRod on Pinks

What's firing order balance? Please define as I have never heard of that term.



Do you mean primary and/or secondary balance? THAT I understand. Simple Kinematics.



Your inline 4 won't have perfect balance. You can get either primary or secondary balance, but not both. That is why you see balance shafts in 4 cylinder engines (in cars). To be balanced, you need it.



See http://www.designofmachinery.com/DOM/Page675.pdf



What kind of engineer are you, anyway? My guess is software.



I'll get off of your case now. Too little sleep and a slow work day.

V4's are great.



I had an original Saber. It was a piece of crap. It took mighty Honda a couple of years to get it right. Stuffing V4's into bikes isn't easy. They are necessarily more complex, as well as more expensive to manufacture. The Sabre was a pain to work on, and oh boy, did that top end need work.



Anyway V4's are still great.



I am amazed that there is not a single one in automobile production and I am not sure there has EVER been one. Certainly not in the modern era. It is insane to me that there are all these sub 3 liter V6s out there and no V4's.



Then again, who am I to question every auto design team in the world.

He's a landscape engineer, actually. He mows lawns around his neighborhood.

What kind of engineer are you, anyway? My guess is software. No I design cupholders ... Firing order balance is defined by Kawasaki in promo material as the inherent balance from a 4 cyclinder 4 cycle engine.. i.e while one cylinder is in compression, another is in exhaust, another in intake, another in combustion. No potato potato, In addition 90 degree Vs have good primary balance right????



"With a sufficient number (m) of cylinders, properly arranged in banks of n cylinders in a

multi-bank engine,* an engine can be inherently balanced. In a two-stroke engine with

its crank throws arranged for even firing, all harmonics of shaking force will be balanced

except those whose harmonic number is a multiple of n. In a four-stroke engine with its

crank throws arranged for even firing, all harmonics of shaking force will be balanced

except those whose harmonic number is a multiple of n/2."



What kind of an engineer are you my guess is mechanical. No I have done both hardware (electronic) and software B.S. E.E. and M.S. C.S. (working on it)..P.S, I got As in Statics, Dynamics, Thermo, and Mechanics of Materials Nana Nana Naner...M.Es only wish they were EE
