Engine types, carburetion and fuel injection, gearboxes, lube systems, and chassis are all parts of what make your motorcycle a motorcycle, and this book explains all of it (and more) in plain language and over 400 illustrations. Ideal for those who want to understand the working of their steeds in detail. From the basics like the difference between a two and a four stroke engine to more complex issues such as single and three-phase alternators, this book gives a fine introduction and guide to just what’s going on below you when riding.
