    Does anyone know of a good website that explains the geometry of two cylinder engines in regards to vibrations naturally produced by the captioned type engines?

    I thought I saw one somewhere on this board a year or so ago, but cannot find it.

    >>>>>It was my impression the boxer engine was naturally "balanced" thus suffering from less vibration than the other types. Plus the engine had a lower center of gravity.<<<<<<<

    I would like this information because my wife is catching crap from v-twin owners about the "funny looking" r1200c she rides.
