A smart aSs at work bet me $5 that the 1300 has a 1312 cubic inch displacement. I said BULL, and took the bet. I know that the 1300 is a 1312 cc engine. Doesn't "cc" mean cubic centimeters? I'm thinking that someone here said that the 1300 has a 110 cubic inch displacement? Can anyone tell me for sure? I'll buy the first one to answer correctly a beer, just to shut this guy at work up. :x :lol:

I believe the 1312cc = 80 cubic inches... the 'other' VTX = 110 cubic inches. Could be wrong but thats my understanding. :D

1312.00 ccm (80.06 cubic inches)

Tell your friend that since 1 cc = 0.0610232 ci :shock:

1312 cc x 0.0610232 ci/cc = 80.0631519 ci

you win :D

Ok, looks like I'm buyin' three beers. :lol:

one for XRiderChuck, he was first with 80 cubic inches 8)

one for mike149, cause he was EXACTLY right (80.06 cubic inches) :shock: 8)

one for BradDo for giving me the math to floor the jerk at work :lol:

PM me your flavors gents, I'm buyin' :!:

many thanks. 8) 8) 8)

Couldn't stop thinking about this one. Most would consider a 5 liter engine to be relatively beefy (for a ford mustang, for instance), but if our bike had a 1312 cubic inch motor that would come out to 21.5 liters, wow with a motor like that, you could even go fast with a black bike :lol:

1312.00 ccm (80.06 cubic inches)

cc stands for cubic centimeters, also abrreviated "ccm"

1 cubic inch is app. 2.54cmx2.54cmx2.54cm = 16.39cc(m)

1312/16.39=80.05 ci or so

Also 1000 cc is 1 liter, thus our bike has a 1.312 liter engine.

I can't believe that we are the last somewhat civilized country that does not use the decimal system...

The guy at your work will probably go wild saying that he meant cubic centimeters. LOL

I guess it may depend on how much weight you are carrying too...

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I'll just have to ask him in front of everyone else, one more time, "You said 1312 CUBIC INCH DISPLACEMENT, right?" Then bring this thread up. Man, I'm almost peein myself thinkin about the look on his face. :lol: :twisted:

You guys rock, I'm buyin' the whole board a beer :!:

You got it. 8) Thanks again.


The pantywaste at work this morning argued for about 5 minutes, then I brought him and two others into my office and showed them this thread. The jerkoFF got pissed and left, the other two were ROTFL :lol: :lol:

I haven't seen "him" back yet, must be at the bank waiting in line to withdraw his $5! :lol:

Thanks again everyone :!:

Quick conversion I use-- 50cc=3cubic inches. (so ford's 302 is 5liters 5000cc=300c.i.)

A 750 = 15x3= 45c.i.

Not exact, but it works it's quick.

1312cubic inches would = 21,900cc.

a 625 hp Caterpillar ACERT engine is only 928c.i. /15liters

here is another one...either divide by or multiply by 16.22 to convert. also as a bit of stupid information, the medical profession is being dicsouraged in the use of cc (cubic centimeter) in favor of the ml (milli-liter) they are the same thing of course. so...i ride a 1300ml vtx!!

the metric system make sense from some angles. a 1 centimeter cube of water weighs 1 gram. 1000 of these weighs 1 kilo. 1000 milliliters equals 1 liter and weighs 1 kilo too. coincidence? probably!!? sometimes i get lucky and can remember the conversion for miles/kilometers but never, never ask me how torque values and/or pressures convert.

We aren't. Great Britain (and Ireland to some extent) still uses non-metric (not decimal - we've all used a decimal based system for a LONG time) units for distance measurements for distance. There are still some holdout areas in England where they refuse to adopt metric units for weight.

It's a common misconception that all of the EU countries quickly and willingly adopted the metric system - England resisted for many years (and still does for its inches, feet, and miles) since the old Imperial system is, after all, "theirs".

How is it that this simple multiplication thread is still so high on the board ....... oops :oops:

Try this on for size. Displacement is the volume of the cylinder calculated using the bore size, stroke length and the number of cylinders. The calculation is done multiplying the area of the cylinder bore by the length of the stroke, times the number of cylinders.

While there are many solutions to the problem one example of an engine with a displacement of 1312 cu. in. would be a 2 cylinder engine with each cylinder being 8 inches in diameter with a stroke of 13.05 inches in length.

Now that is one BIG engine.

Don't know if it matters on the outcome of the bet, but I believe it's 1302 cc's not 1312..........either way, you got him....lol.

lets make it hard. at 3000 rpm for 30 minutes how many feet does the piston in the front cylinder travel.

You are wrong - GB and Ireland have adopted the metric system since 1989. Implementation may be an issue, and there may be areas that have not changed out signs and revised regulations, but to me the bottom line is that people learn to think in that system, which is both simpler and superior.

lets make it hard. at 3000 rpm for 30 minutes how many feet does the piston in the front cylinder travel.

Lets see...
At 1 rpm the piston goes up and down the cylinder once.
The stroke I found for the 1300 was 104.3 mm, so that is 208.6mm per rpm.
208.6mm x 3000rpm is 625800mm.
625800mm x 30 minutes is 18774000mm.
18774000mm divided by 304.8mm per foot is 61594.5 feet traveled in 30 minutes at 3000 rpm.
:D
As you can see I have not been drinking yet!

What amazes me is that all the 1300 bikes are the same displacement but somehow the black ones always go faster (and look better)

Converting our Nation to the Metric system is a massive undertaking. I don't even want to think about what all that would endtail. Imagine buying lumber, its not a 2X4 anymore. So would we change the size of the board to suit the new system or keep it the same size and reference it in Metric: 5.08x10.16? Either way would cause alot of confusion I think. Then apply that same problem to every tool, nut, and bolt; every peice of building and construction material, etc, etc. I doubt this is the only issue with an across the board conversion, its just the only one that comes to mind. I don't see how we'll ever change, and I'm strangely comfortable with that.

the piston travel thing is interesting, mike149, as this is a major basis for how almost all engines are designed. engineers know that an engine (depending on the size of the explosion of course) is only good for X number of piston travel in miles or feet. this is why most 4 cycle engines are built to remain within, basically, the same rpm range. try this at home by using only 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear on your VTX. my guess is that although you can do this for 100k miles without exceeding redline, your engine will not last as long as the guy who uses all the gears!
