Also can someone confirm, they did not change the engine at all even when going to a cradle frame. The reason I ask is the engine and casings were designed to be stressed members and thus extremely heavy comparative to an engine that is not. Given that they have not remotely redesigned the engine once the cradle frame came along woudl seem to: a)mean they have missed th opportunity to reduce the weight of the engine and may correct the bikes balance b)mean that developing the aluminimum cradle has been a waste of time if you don't redesign the engine away from a stressed member design.
