Liquid 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 CARBURETOR
The 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.
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.
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
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.
