Compact, powerful 1261cc DOHC 90-degree V-4 engine with an oversquare bore and stroke of 78mm x 66mm, and longitudinal engine mounting improves power flow and drivetrain efficiency.
The ST1300's low center of gravity contributes to enhanced low-speed handling. The 360-degree crank contributes to a very broad powerband. Two engine counterbalancers virtually eliminate primary and secondary vibration. Both gear-driven counterbalancer shafts are installed in the lower crankcase to the left side of the crankshaft. The first shaft is driven directly by the crankshaft at a 2:1 ratio. The second shaft is positioned below the first and is driven in the opposite direction by the first balancer shaft's drive gear. The combination of these two balancers ensures a supremely comfortable ride for long-distance touring. Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation system ensures high-rpm durability and allows 16,000-mile valve-maintenance intervals. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) (see Technology Section).
Electronic Control Unit (ECU) closed-loop emissions system utilizes two oxygen sensors to constantly deliver a precise air/fuel mixture, while two exhaust catalyzers further reduce emissions. 4-into-2 stainless-steel exhaust system features a pair of attractive, triangular-section 5.4-liter mufflers with stainless-steel heat shields.
High-output, air-cooled, 660-watt alternator is located between the cylinder banks, contributing to a shorter and more compact engine design. U-shaped aluminum radiator has excellent cooling capacity, and a ring-type fan draws air through the radiator at low speeds to ensure stable operating temperatures for consistent performance and long engine life.
Quiet and reliable shaft-drive system is virtually maintenance-free
