YZF-R1 With All New Cross Plane Technology

Posted by Koneko Kumamoto On April - 10 - 2010Comments Off on YZF-R1 With All New Cross Plane Technology

The YZF-R1 was first introduced in 1998 after redesigning the Genesis engine to offset the crankshaft, gearbox input and output shafts.  The YZF-R1 ran with a 6-speed multi-plate clutch transmission with a compression ratio of 11:8:1.  The technology that made this possible was called “compacting” of the engine.   This made the engine much shorter which in turn allowed the wheelbase to be shortened significantly which resulted in much quicker handling and an optimized center of gravity. ... more
