Additional information



LIQUID COOLINGLiquid cooling is used to maintain optimum engine operating temperature and minimize power loss due to engine heat. This type of cooling system uses the same types of engine components as in an automobile cooling system, such as a radiator, water pump, and thermostat. Liquid cooling is especially effective on racing-type engines that operate at consistently high rpm. By carefully controlling engine operating temperature, the designer can specify close tolerances without worrying about significant dimensional variation or distortion due to overheating. In high performance applications, the additional weight of the cooling system is easily outweighed by the potential increase in horsepower.





CONSTANT VELOCITY CARBURETORThe constant velocity carburetor(s), (CV carb), is used on all Suzuki street legal models and certain ATVs. On conventional carburetors the throttle cable is connected directly to the throttle slide. However, as the throttle is opened on a CV-type carb, the air pressure difference between the outside atmosphere and inside the carburetor venturi forces the slide up and down. This type of system allows the carburetor to feed the engine a very precise amount of fuel/air mixture which increases fuel economy and gives good throttle response. The precision of the CV carb also helps meet emission regulations.





AUTOMATIC CAM CHAIN TENSIONER Cam chains require that a certain amount of tension be applied to them at all times to maintain correct camshaft/valve timing, especially at high rpm. Conventional cam chain tensioners require periodic adjustment to maintain proper tension as the cam chain wears. Automatic cam chain tensioners do not need periodic adjustment and minimize cam chain noise and wear.




A digital ignition is a type of transistorized electronic ignition system that is pre-programmed similar to a computer. The program or "map" is designed to help the engine develop optimum power at all engine speeds. The system can adjust ignition timing in very small rpm increments so the timing is always accurate and maintenance-free.


O-RING SEALED DRIVE CHAIN An O-ring sealed chain has rubber O-rings between the side plates to seal in grease used to lubricate critical internal bearing surfaces of the rollers. O-ring chains are common now among Suzuki motorcycles because they last longer, require less maintenance, and offer a smooth, quiet transfer of power. If chain replacement becomes necessary, an O-ring chain should always be used if the motorcycle was originally equipped with one.


As the name implies, inverted forks are positioned on the motorcycle opposite or upside down when compared to conventional forks. The large outer tube of the fork is clamped in the bike's triple clamps and the sliding inner tube holds the axle and front wheel. This arrangement gives the forks high rigidity which improves their response by reducing the side-loading of the internal bushings (sliding surfaces). This kind of response is particularly important in high performance street/roadracing applications. The majority of inverted forks have cartridge-type damping systems.


ADJUSTABLE SPRING PRELOAD Spring preload refers to the amount of adjusted tension applied to the fork springs and rear shock spring(s). The adjustable preload feature gives the rider the ability to apply more tension to the springs if the ride feels too soft, or less tension if the ride feels too stiff. On most models spring preload is adjustable on either the front forks, the rear shock absorber or both. The springs of the front and rear suspension support the weight of the motorcycle and rider while cushioning the ride as the bike travels over the irregularities in the road or track. Spring rates are based on the type of riding a model is intended for and average rider weight. The preload adjustment provides some variation for rider weight and road and track surface variation.
