The modern motorcycle is a fascinating and complex piece of machinery, easily as complex and diverse as the modern car. With clear, jargon-free text, and detailed cutaway illustrations, this book explains exactly how the modern bike works. From the basics of the internal combustion engine, to the wide variety of modern transmissions and ancillary systems. With hints and tips on how to keep your bike working efficiently, and a glossary of terms, this book will not turn you into an expert mechanic, but it will increase your understanding and enjoyment of your motorcycle.
