Buell new engine
I read in a magasine (magazine?) that the short stoke, larger bore(3.815in.) engine,1170cc is doing better in the racing world than the long stroke reg. bore (3.5in.) 1200cc. I wonder if they could put 4 valves, larger pistons and make the engine rev higher than 7500rpm as a limit? Tell me if I'm wrong but the kawa 2000 Vulcan got 4 valves/cylinder and the heads are cooled by oil better than Buell, permitting 4 valves/cyl. , if its right, why not making an 9k rev. limit and 4valves/cyl., that will probably permit a significant increase in hp an be more interesting for eventual buyers. Any opinion on this?
