Apr 3, 6.The standard model was introduced in October ,and produced through The "Special" cruiser model was introduced in and produced through Later the Hosk company was acquired by Showa Corporationand in Yamaha had bought Showa with Hosk's early design of cc twin.
When the Yamaha XS was launched in October it had one of the most advanced engines in its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The engine and gearbox are unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally for ease of assembly whereas almost all contemporaries in its class in are either unit construction with a vertically split crankcase or pre-unit construction with separate engine and gearbox.
The model was designated the XS The first two model years XS-1 and XS-1B were kick start only, with an electric starter added from the model year on. This had a compression release added to the front left exhaust tappet cover resulting in a square versus triangular cover found on the other exhaust and intake covers. Upon removal of the compression release mechanism in due to updated starter, the square cover at the left exhaust valve was continued.
Prior to the XS-B model, the bike had a reputation for speed wobbles but adjustments to the setup overcame these. This placed the brake caliper nearer the steering pivot center-line, requiring slightly less effort to steer. The entire fork assembly with triple tree will swap either way but fork parts are not equivalent.
The XS was produced until The last model year was in the United States, with Canada, Europe and other markets continuing into and However, many US models remained unsold for some years due to overproduction and an economic recession and brand new and models could still be purchased in at some dealerships.
This provides an even firing interval between the two cylindersbut also generates some vibration caused by the two pistons rising and falling together.
This vibration is particularly noticeable at idle. Because of a long-acknowledged vibration issue, starting with the models, vibration damping modifications were made to the engine and handlebar mountings. The XS s valves are operated by a single overhead camshaft SOHC whereas almost all contemporaries in its class have pushrod valvegear [ citation needed ]. The degrees crankshaft uses three roller bearings and a ball bearing.
The camshaft uses four ball bearings, and rolling bearings are used throughout the rest of the engine. Connecting rods turn on needle bearings. Since the engine is SOHC, there are no pushrods to operate the valves. The camshaft gets its drive from a single-row chain running from the center of the crankshaft. Chain tension is maintained by a spring-loaded guide, which also takes up unnecessary slack.
The initial intake valve timing was changed in EPA mandated from a longer duration to a milder duration, this and other changes stifled the later models somewhat, the compression ratio also became lower over the years to match the milder cam timing, the flywheel is lighter than British contemporaries, this has the effect that the engine tends to pick up revs more rapidly when the throttle is opened quickly.Picture submitted by anonymous user.

Beyond the above-mentioned metrics that you can obtain from Instagram analytics tools, you can go one level deeper by using some of those numbers to calculate more useful performance metrics. Some of the Instagram analytics tools listed below can automatically calculate these metrics for you. Growth metrics allow you to know the change (increase or decrease) of a metric.
An example is follower growth how your follower count is growing over time. For example, engagement rate is the percentage of your followers that has engaged with your Instagram post.
Tip: Completion rate is often used for calculating the percentage of people who viewed all the photos and videos in your Instagram Stories. It is determined by dividing the number of views for the last post in a story with the number of views of the first post in the story.
Average metrics give you a benchmark for the general performance of your Instagram posts. For example, the metric, average likes per post, tells you generally the number of likes each of your posts received. Sum of metric for a period (e. But you can also use time period (i. For instance, you could calculate the average number of viewers for your Instagram live videos on different days of the week to determine which day might be best to live stream on Instagram.
Examples: Average comment, average engagement, average reach for Instagram Stories, and average viewers for Instagram live videos. By ranking your posts by the number of impressions, reach, engagement, or views they received, you can find out your top performing posts and attempt to repeat the success. Examples: Top post, top video, top 10 posts in terms of comments, and top 10 posts in terms of engagement.
Instagram provides pretty much all of the metrics and insights listed above in Instagram Insights. All you need is an Instagram Business Profile. It shows you the top six posts in the past seven days sorted by impressions. If you have created a story in the past 24 hours, it will show up there. If you are running Instagram ads, you can see their performance here.
