I concur, re: Triumph twins. Anyway, that's how it was explained to me by engineer/mechanic pal-o-mine, years ago rebuilding top end on my Bonneville.

Didn't know any Honda twins were 360, tho. I've got several 350 motors & watching the pistons, I always figured 180, which I assumed would run a bit smoother than the Triumph. However, I just picked up a '68/69 type-1 motor, which I've heard has a slightly hotter cam (is this true?). It has "Type-1" stamped into the points cover. If it's a 360 degree crank, does that mean it's going to sound more Triumph-y? That would be sweet.
