Harley-Davidson engines

V-twin in a HD Road King
.The classic Harley-Davidson engines are two-cylinder, V-twin engines with the pistons mounted in a 45° "V". The crankshaft has a single pin, and both pistons are connected to this pin through their connecting rods.^ Harley-Davidson 45 .

^ Powered by the V-twin engines the Sportster has its pistols arranged in a V at 45 degrees and connected by both the connecting rods.

^ The pistons are connected with the help of a connecting rod to a single pin, which is mounted on a crankshaft.

[6]
.This design causes the pistons to fire at uneven intervals.^ The engine is designed so that the pistons fire off at different times.

^ The time period in which both the pistons fire off is uneven.

.This is due to an engineering tradeoff to create a large, high-torque engine in a small space.^ The engine is designed in such a manner that it provides higher torque in a particularly smaller amount of space.

.This design choice is entirely vestigial from an engineering standpoint, but has been sustained because of the strong connection between the distinctive sound and the Harley-Davidson brand.^ Harley-Davidson cuts two brands .

This is known as a dual fire ignition system, causing both spark plugs to fire regardless of which cylinder was on its compression stroke, with the other spark plug firing on its cylinder's exhaust stroke, effectively "wasting a spark." The exhaust note is basically a throaty growling sound with some popping. .The 45° design of the engine thus creates a plug firing sequencing as such: The first cylinder fires, the second (rear) cylinder fires 315° later, then there is a 405° gap until the first cylinder fires again, giving the engine its unique sound.^ Work starts on Hopwood's three-cylinder engine design.

This was the nation's first group to share research on psychological acoustics. Later that year, Harley-Davidson participated in a series of sound quality studies at Orfield Labs, based on recordings taken at the Talladega Superspeedway, with the objective to lower the sound level for EU standards while analytically capturing the "Harley Sound."[citation needed] This research resulted in the bikes that were introduced in compliance with EU standards for 1998.
.On February 1, 1994, the company filed a sound trademark application for the distinctive sound of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle engine: "The mark consists of the exhaust sound of applicant's motorcycles, produced by V-twin, common crankpin motorcycle engines when the goods are in use". Nine of Harley-Davidson's competitors filed comments opposing the application, arguing that cruiser-style motorcycles of various brands use a single-crankpin V-twin engine which produce a similar sound.^ Harley Davidson Motorcycle $27,000 .

Model families

.Modern Harley-branded motorcycles fall into one of five model families: Touring, Softail, Dyna, Sportster and VRSC. Model families are distinguished by the frame, engine, suspension, and other characteristics.^ Harley Sportster - Harley Davidson Motorcycle $8,200 .

^ Harley Sportster - Harley Davidson Motorcycle $5,100 .

^ Sportster - Harley Davidson Motorcycle $6,500 .

Touring

The touring family, also known as "dressers", includes three Road King models and Electra Glide models offered in various trim. The Road Kings have a "retro cruiser" appearance and are equipped with a large clear windshield. Road Kings are reminiscent of big-twin models from the 1940s and '50s. Electra Glides can be identified by their full front fairings. Most Electra Glides sport a fork-mounted fairing referred to as the "Batwing" due to its unmistakable shape. The Road Glide has a frame-mounted fairing, referred to as the "Sharknose". The Sharknose includes a unique, dual front headlight.
.Touring models are distinguishable by their large saddlebags, rear coil-over air suspension and are the only models to offer full fairings with Radios/CBs.^ BMW produces full swinging-arm suspension for its models.

Environmental record

The Environmental Protection Agency conducted emissions-certification and representative emissions test in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2005. Subsequently, Harley-Davidson produced an "environmental warranty." The warranty provides the first and following owners after, that each vehicle is designed and built free of defects in materials and workmanship that cause the vehicle to not meet EPA standards.[90] .In 2005, the EPA and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection confirmed Harley-Davidson to be the first corporation to voluntarily enroll in the One Clean-Up Program.^ Harley-Davidson began in a shed, went to war, became the symbol of American individualism and ended up "KING OF THE ROAD", all in 100 years.

The program is backed by the state and local government along with participating organizations and corporations.[91]
Paul Gotthold, Director of Operations for the EPA, congratulated the Motor Company:
“Harley-Davidson has taken their environmental responsibilities very seriously and has already made substantial progress in the investigation and cleanup of past contamination. Proof of Harley's efforts can be found in the recent EPA determination that designates the Harley property as ‘under control’ for cleanup purposes. .This determination means that there are no serious contamination problems at the facility.^ A little over a hundred miles means it is a good time to stop for gas as there is no easy place to get gas on 5 north until Tacoma.

Under the new One Cleanup Program, Harley, EPA, and PADEP will expedite the completion of the property investigation and reach a final solution that will permanently protect human health and the environment.”[91]

Harley-Davidson motorcycles has long been associated with the sub-cultures of the:

Origin of "Hog" nickname

.Beginning in 1920, a team of farm boys, including Ray Weishaar, who became known as the "hog boys," consistently won races.^ It started in 1920 when a pig, the Harley racing team's mascot, was carried on a victory lap after each race won by H-D's team of cyclists.
  • York Town Square: Harley-Davidson Archives 30 January 2010 2:12 UTC www.yorkblog.com [Source type: General]

The group had a hog, or pig as their mascot. .Following a win, they would put the pig (a real one) on their Harley and take a victory lap.^ It started in 1920 when a pig, the Harley racing team's mascot, was carried on a victory lap after each race won by H-D's team of cyclists.
  • York Town Square: Harley-Davidson Archives 30 January 2010 2:12 UTC www.yorkblog.com [Source type: General]

^ I smiled to myself as I noticed which exit they had chosen, the one that would take them down a recently oiled and graveled road with 20 mph speeds, serves them right for giving all sport riders a bad name.

^ With this new engine design Harley-Davison puts one more notch in its insurance for success.

[103] .In 1983, the Motor Company formed a club for owners of its product taking advantage of the long-standing nickname by turning "hog" into the acronym HOG., for Harley Owners Group.^ Evolution: 1983-1999 In 1984 on the heels of a bold employee buyout of AMF, the motor company went public and introduced its now famous redesign of the V-twin.

^ You too, can join our group when you become an AMS OIL Dealer or Preferred Customer and take advantage of all that we offer as you use products in your own vehicles or begin your own AMSOIL business.

^ Sure enough a cop decides to turn around and follow me into the gas station, do all bikers get this kind of double take/harassment or just me!

.Harley-Davidson attempted to trademark "hog", but lost a case against an independent Harley-Davidson specialist, The Hog Farm of West Seneca, NY,[104] in 1999 when the appellate panel ruled that "hog" had become a generic term for large motorcycles and was therefore unprotectable as a trademark.^ Harley Davidson Motorcycle $27,000 .

.He is thought to have been more than curious to discover how the secret "Evolution Motor" had found its world exclusive on the cover of the spring edition of the HDRCGB magazine, the "Harleyquin", but having a forgiving nature, Willie G. returned in 1984, along with Vaughn Beals and Len Thomson to officially show off the Evolution engine by bringing a test ride fleet to the second Brighton International Super Rally run by H.D.R.C.G.B..^ One more thing about Styx -- Cash Kings played in the bar before I went into the show, a Johnny Cash cover band, and I thought it was 1966 all over again!

The club is split into regions and most hold rallies during the summer culminating in the clubs International Rally.

^ News reports sometimes refer to Harley-Davidson as a York County icon, part of the company's greater brand as one of the last of the mighty American manufacturers.
