How motorcycles work

I’m not a gear head, but I’m nonetheless interested in the inner workings of a motorcycle. I’ve been looking this kind of stuff up, and recently stumbled upon a link to a website called howmotorcycleswork.com.
If you go to the Master Outlin/Sitemap section, you’ll find links to hand made drawings of some of the components of a motorcycle, and just a little bit of text underneath each drawing to somewhat explain it. The site seems like it’s still a work in progress, though, so not all the topics listed in the outline are explained. However, it was interesting, to see stuff like the inner workings of shaft drives, desmodromic valves, and other such things illustrated in graphical form. Hope this helps out other curious BBM’ers.July 16, 2009 at 7:26 am #20676gsmurfetteParticipant
(Ben, I still wish there was a way to bookmark or sticky something for later reference…)
