Suzuki RM Z450 observation "Short Stroke"?

2 posts in this topic

It looks to me that the cylinder on the new Z450 banana is pretty darn short compared to the Yamaha and the rest of the new 450's. Some good close up pics in the new Dirt Rider mag. Maybe the new motor was really developed to be a 500 or bigger. Suzuki may stroke the motor a year or 2 down the road. Any knowledge of what the bore is?

Food for thought.

Not sure on the bore but yes the cylinder does appear to be very short.Keep in mind the skirt of the sleeve could also drop down further into the case than the Yammmy/newer 450's.
