The 5-stroke article says more about how the engine works and what it does but the 6-stroke is a good read aswell :D

I love the concept of the 5 stroke engine, quite ingenious really, why someone didn't think of this 20 years ago I dont know! Quite extraordinary!

New 2-stroke technology may well revive the 2 stroke concept. They are simple and light, which is a good start. Direct timed injection, sealed crank bearings and ceramic coatings could make 2 strokes really clean and hugely powerful.

I've been lurking but havn't posted lol. Busy with work etc.
Still bike-less :(. Havn't minded in the snow so much though ;).
Might sell the Astra and get about a 2000 R1 around Easter time depending on how much i'd get for it etc.
