Are JE pistons any good?

They’re high quality, forged aluminium and anti-friction coated and are machined to the highest quality finish.

How many pistons are in AV twin?

A V-twin engine, also called a V2 engine, is a two-cylinder piston engine where the cylinders share a common crankshaft and are arranged in a V configuration.

What are the best pistons?

How many cylinders does a Harley V-twin have?

two- cylinder
The classic Harley-Davidson engines are two- cylinder, V-twin engines with the pistons placed at a 45 degree angle. The crankshaft has a single pin, and both pistons are connected to this pin through their connecting rods.

How do you identify a JE piston?


  1. You’ll find the JE logo laser-etched underneath the crown of every JE piston manufactured since 2004.
  2. Your pistons may have a laser marking on the crown spelling “INT” or “EXH.” INT stands for intake, and EXH stands for exhaust.
  3. This number ONLY identifies the raw forging that was used to manufacture the piston.

Is the V-twin a good engine?

V-twin engines accomodate more space. That is actually a disadvantage but this extra space can be utilised to fit more components like an extra valve or a spark plug. V-twin engines are also easy to balance than parallel twins but not easier than a boxer engine. The cooling of the engine is also more easier.

Why do V twins have more torque?

V-twin engines produce their peak power and torque at lower engine speeds than four-cylinders. They must turn the rear wheel further for each engine rotation to achieve road speeds equivalent to those of a four-cylinder machine.
