Hi,



See photo of Moto Reve Vee Twin timing case!!!

The gear on the magneto is eccentric, its meshed gear fixed on the idler gear below has the same eccentricity.

Hence the magneto keeps speeding up (furthest out teeth to nearest to center = less crank degrees travel) and slowing down (nearest to center teeth to furthest out = more crank degrees travel) in one revolution and gives the sparks at the right moment on each cylinder of that 60 degree Vee Twin.



Weird but it works quite well as long as these two eccentric gears are meshed properly!!!

And designed with no computer for the complex maths...

Patrick

A) What kinda bike is it?
B) Why? This is so needlessly complex.
C) I can't even imagine the tax this would place on my brain if I was charged with figuring out something similar. Actually, I guess I could do it in a few hours, but shit, what a pain.

Oh, I missed the Moto Reve part.... that like didn't load on my computer or something.

That's pretty incredible. They learned so much so fast... and there were so many small companies making this shit happen.

Too cool.
