Motorcycle engines for the most part are pretty simple. Compared to modern variable timing systems and canBUS electronics on cars.

Hell, my F-150 is throttle by wire.

Yeah, I know. It was just tongue in cheek. I have worked on a few motorcycle engines and they are pretty simple (especially my CB350). But the VW 1600 engine is simplicity itself. I once owned a bus in Grand Cayman. I left the island. It was sold but the new owner blew the motor and the person who was selling it for me in my absence gave the guy his money back and took back the van. I had a sailboat delivery to GC so took all the parts with me on the boat and when I got there I pulled the motor in a gravel parking lot, stuck it in the van and rebuilt it completely, then stuck it back in using a cement block and a long timber for a lever to get it in place. Of course, my CB350 motor I can simply lift out of the bike and put on a bench (where it sits right now actually).

Cheers,

Mike

There are a lot of motorcycles that use canbus systems. BMW was the first, I think. And anything that uses the newer Marelli ECU also does.

Learn to laugh at yourself. It works for me. Plus I get to laugh a lot because I do stoopid stuff every day.

Warm weather will be coming. Do you know where you will need to moor your boat? So is the dragon one of those Rivers of Asphalt that poets talk about? Are there places to pull up and enjoy some beach and swim time? Is there room to raft up and party?
