Decode: Compression Ratio ?
I have a subscription to Sport Ridar Magizine. Reading through the articles I noticed to myself, I dont know what 12:3:1 is.
What does the X ,Y, & Z stand for? In a ratio of 12:3:1 (X:Y:Z)?
Does . . . this stand for . . .
X = atmospheres (atm) of pressure
Y = vaccume pressure
&Z = to 1atm
If So . . . am I right to think . . .
The compression ratio of the 08' CBR1000RR, is 12:3:1. So it has a compression of 12atm, and a vaccume pressure of 3atm.
