EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION IN DETERMINING OPTIMUM WORKING TEMPERATURE FOR A 4- STROKE AIR-COOLED MOTORCYCLE ENGINE

Mallya Ananth Mohan, Narasimha Krishna Bailkeri.

Abstract
Almost every motorcycles on Indian roads is of the commuter variant and typically use air cooled single
cylinder four strokes. Depending on the type of usage, these engines are optimized for fuel efficiency, rather than for
outright power. Yet, the Indian obsession with fuel efficiency makes the riders run the engines very lean with the
sole purpose of extracting the maximum possible mileage. Without sufficient airflow over the fins, these engines
characteristically overheat in traffic conditions, affecting fuel efficiency drastically. This work aims at determining
the optimum working temperature of an air cooled engine, where maximum fuel efficiency is obtained under static
conditions.

Key words: engine, temperature, optimum working temperature
