Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Harley Davidson Softail:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). The fuel efficiency of Harley Davidson Softail based on its technical specifications will let it run for 35.1 miles burning one gallon of fuel. It also means that it will burn 6.70 liters on a 100km trip. So if Harley Davidson Softail has a tank full of 5 gallons of fuel it can be ridden for 176 miles till we run out of gas. Of course we better make sure we top it up again before that happens.
- 1584 cc engine displacement (engine size) - this is the total swept volume of all the pistons in the cylinders when they are performing a complete stroke. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. The Harley Davidson Softail engine has a displacement volume of 1584 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 130 mm or 5.1 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of Softail not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. Motorcycles with lower ground clearance would have better handling as their center of gravity will be lower than average.Bore and stroke of Harley Davidson Softail engine
- Bore and stroke 95.25x111.25 - these parameters may be presented as bore/stroke ratio in some technical specifications. This ratio refers to the diameter of the cylinder bore divided by the length of the piston stroke. According to the technical specifications of Harley Davidson Softail its bore is 95.25 mm and the stroke is 111.25 mm. If the bore is shorter than the stroke as it is with this Harley Davidson engine then we say that Softail has a long-stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 9.2:1. Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Belt final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. All three variations of final drive have been used for a very long time and each of them has proved to be successful one. The final drive of Harley Davidson Softail is belt.
motorcycle final drive with beltBelts are usually made of strong aramid fibers covered with synthetic rubber and are resistant to environmental pollutants. They are smoother than chain drives, less expensive than shafts and require less frequent adjustment. They are smoother compared to chain drives and more economical than shaft drives when it comes to driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle.
- Air cooling system: both air and liquid cooling systems serve the same purpose to keep the engine in an optimal temperature range and they both have their advantages. Some of the main advantages if the air cooled motorcycles are their simplicity and reliability due to the fact that they have less parts that could eventually break down.Harley Davidson Softail turn signals - replacement
- Replacing the turn signals of Harley Davidson Softail is not a difficult undertaking and usually turns out to be much simpler than expected. Disconnecting the wires of the motorcycle turn signals is not a hassle as usually they are color coded. The next step is to locate the bolts that hold them in position. After the new Harley Davidson Softail turn signals are placed on make sure they are connected to the right slots as previously marked.Harley Davidson Softail with protective bike cover
Since the dimensions of the Harley Davidson Softail are given in the specs that would help you get the right size motorcycle cover. If any additional aftermarket accessories have been installed on the bike they may have an effect on the dimensions. In case the motorcycle has saddle bags or windshield then it will most likely need a larger protective cover.
