im trying to look at the diagram but all i see is lines.. i think can barely tell where the engine is and where the 2 piece chassis is, but its so hard to really tell how it works..
It's quite simple, really.
1. They've now put the V almost the right way up, instead of on its side.
They've bolted the Y-shaped steering yoke to both cylinder banks.
They've bolted an upright to teh rear bank & crankcase, hung the trailing arm off the bottom & cantilevered the seat off the top of that.
A short-stroke V5 should be fairly smooth, as was the old V4. They do suffer vibration periods, but at specific revs.
Try a 600 single or any Harley V-twin, if you want to know what vibration is!
