FUEL EFFICIENT OPERATION
The fuel economy of the GX690 V-Twin is similar to fuel injection, with the simplicity of carburetion ensuring that running this unit is easy on both your pocket and the environment.It features a digital CDI ignition system with variable timing, as well as a forged steel crankshaft and insert style rod bearings for efficient operation. There’s also a rev limiter to protect against damage from over-revving. A hemispherical combustion chamber delivers rapid combustion, and it features Pressure fed crankshaft bearings.Add a two barrel inner-vent carburetor for more precise fuel metering and a 9.3:1 compression ratio, and you’ll be generating high power output without the need for premium fuel.
