Dumb question

Ok, ready for this one? How is engine displacement figured out? Is it the volume of one cylinder w/ piston at dead bottom x #of cylinders in engine (in wich case we don't really have a 998cc bike)...or is it the total volume of all cylinders w/ the pistons at their given position at any point in the crank cycle (in wich case a 4 cylinder liter bike would have cylinders larger than 250cc each)...or am I completely off the mark?

I once said "Displacement was compensation for lack of skill. Therefore, there is no need for anything more than a well balanced 600." Right, who was I kidding.

(Bore X stroke of each) X number of Cyls.

998 divided by 4 = 249.5 cc volume each cylinder could hold at bottom dead center basically.

OKAY now you've got me thinking


76mm bore X 55stroke in that bore.
Has to be in the conversion to cubic centimeters- I hate math

You need to use the formula for the volume of a cylinder. For the example you gave, converting to centimeters, the diameter of the bore is 7.6 cm, the radius is half that, 3.8 cm, and the height is 5.5 cm. Therefore,
