What do you call a bulletproof Irishman?
Not a joke.
Imagine a 4 cylinder motor with this setup.
I see a lifetime job in adjusting valve clearances.
I doubt the benefit would outweigh the problems and expense.
I'm trying to imagine what the cam/rocker setup looks like - my head hurts
Yamaha Genesis 7-Valve
While the 7-valve variant of the Genesis engine really wasn’t ever close to production, it is important because it really showed that there is such thing as too much. A leader in multi-valve technology at the time, Yamaha experimented with its Genesis engine program to find out how many valves shoved into a combustion chamber were too many. With four intake valves, three exhaust valves, and two spark plugs per cylinder, the R&D team finally found the wall. In fact, they also tried an experimental six-valve design as well, and found it to perform worse than a five-valve design, setting the standard early on for five-valve-per-cylinder designs.
So, technically it was a joke?
I'm guessing by the picture in the top right hand corner that they may also come with a brown stripe?
For anyone who has a cat...
That's another Larson isn't it?
Very funny man, he rocks!
Absolutely. Very funny man.
