For what it’s worth its firing both cylinders at the same time (not opposed) and dual injectors per cylinder.

This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a side-by-side and possibly even in the Sandune custom application one off stuff.

That seems highly unlikely. Where did that info come from ?

RG has mentioned it quite a few times. He has talked about the balancers required to make it work.

Hey John good to talk to you this is John with the maroon Manx that was on your dyno in end of March. Here is a link to the show where they discussed quite a bit on the engine design. I think there are other shows also but I would have to go back and look. It seems like they have really done their homework and he has some very talented people in all aspects helping him with the design. I hope it is reliable when they show up for customers. Again it looks like they are putting in the time and expertise in some very detailed testing.

360 degree, and "twingle" parallel twins are not a new concept.

Wrong. 

 

They do go up and down together. But they do NOT fire at the same time.

guys i realize both piston move the same and are at TDC at same time but that does not mean they both "fire at the same time" as mentioned

Based on the sound at idle, that's what I suspected. It has that smooth idle you hear on 4 cyl street bikes. My Wildcat engine, by contrast, sounds a lot like a Harley Davidson, a much lower sounding RPM, like a thumper.

Yes, a tiny amount. Far better than leaving the spindles and tires at the bottom of every hill. Can't drive it back to camp without the front tires.    LOL!

 I thought you were cool until you posted this. 
Every red-blooded American male needs to own a Harley at least once in their lifetime.

Not this guy.  No desire to ride a motorcycle in So. Cal. and get splatted on the street.
