Aimed at beginners to motorcycling and those starting motorcycle engineering courses, this book will provide the reader with a sound understanding of how motorcycle components function and how they have been developed. The chapters are arranged in a logical order, starting with a full explanation of the two- and four-stroke combustion processes, the different induction methods and the various engine configurations, then leading on to chapters on how fuelling and ignition are controlled, how the engine is lubricated and cooled, and an explanation of the many different types of suspension, frame and braking systems.
With a Haynes manual, you can do it yourself…from simple maintenance to basic repairs. Haynes writes every book based on a complete teardown of the motorcycle. We learn the best ways to do a job and that makes it quicker, easier and cheaper for you. Our books have clear instructions and hundreds of photographs that show each step. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, you can save big with Haynes!
