Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A big bang engine is an unconventional motorcycle engine designed so that most of the power strokes occur simultaneously or in close succession. This is achieved by changing the ignition timing; sometimes in combination with a change in crankpin angle. The goal is to change the power delivery characteristics of the engine or exhaust sound. A regular firing multi-cylinder engine fires at approximately even intervals, giving a smooth-running engine. Because of a big bang engine's power delivery imbalance, there exists more vibration and stress in the engine. This imbalance can overwhelm the rear tire, and generally makes a slide harder to catch. Until recently, this has limited their use to racing.show more
