parallel twin firing order?

Recommended Posts

  Something i have wondered for years is about the firing order of a parallel twin.  Yes i am aware of both pistons going the same direction at the same time, but do both cylinders fire at the same time or at different times? Just being curious since i have always wondered.

Parallel twins don't fire at the same time. While one piston is on the way up to fire the other is on the way down.  They are designed like this so there is a constant velocity power band and produce a lot more torque. 

Tandem twins have the pistons firing at the same time as the pistons are at the same location on the crank shaft.  These are a pain in the ass to dial in since the air/fuel delivery to the cylinders has to be very close because they both fire together.

      I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
      I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.
      I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 
       Any help would be great. thanks

      So my Yamaha grizzly 700 wasn't going into reverse for some reason but Jon and George figured it out on what to do to fix that problem for me. Jon Talks about how he was able to fix that problem my Yamaha Grizzly was having with the reverse.
      On a side note we are so close to 1k subs! hell ya!

      I have a 2017 1000s. Should I be worried that it will catch fire?
