Need a good book on sport bike/600cc engines


I am trying to learn in detail how the powertrain of a 600cc sports bike works. Things like how the gears are actuated and cooling system requirements.

Does anyone know of a book that explains this? I do not have the money to buy a wrecked bike to take apart and learn off of at the moment.

The engine works just like any other four stroke. The transmission is just like a cars except a bikes tranny doesnt have syncros and uses a shift drum to move the shift forks instead of a standard h-style shifter on a car. The tranny is driven directly off the crank by a gear then off to the chain---in a super over-simplified version..thats all you'll need to know.

A repair manual for your bike will have a step by step tear down/rebuild for the complete bike.

Its a worthy investment just for the wiring schematic.
