    Thank you for sharing this informative vlog. I had so much fun watching it before heading to bed.

    That YT channel has a lot of interesting videos covering various historical engine developments. Glad you liked it.

    Right, I thought it was the black bomber. The bomber was DOHC.

    Do you have two CL350s, or do you just switch the bodywork and seat on and off (blue & white)?

    Same bike. It was the black version from about 1979-2016, the blue/white version from 2016-2021, and I just switched it back to the black version again. I think I like the black version better, but it’s a fairly easy switch, just an afternoon project. All I changed this time were the tank, seat, rear fender, side covers, and turn signals…pretty easy work for a really different look, all just bolt-on stuff.

    Here's a video and YT channel that I think you'd find interesting. This guy, William Moser, demonstrates with lights and sound how different engines of different cylinder counts and firing orders work.
    This one is for a Laverda Jota.
