Back when I did motorcycle/ATV repair on the side, I worked on a couple BMW bikes. They had large flywheels, and when I first sat on one when running & gave it some throttle, it gave me a weird feeling from the way it felt it was gonna roll right over on it's side. Took some getting used to. My GoldWing I used to have didn't do that at all, but then it's flywheel was much much smaller diameter & lighter.
I've always liked the Beemer bikes... I owned an R65 when I was in the Army in Alabama. The older engines had heavy flywheels, but they really lightened them up on the newer engines--gives a lot better throttle response.
I see where aircraft homebuilders are using the R1100 & R12oo engines with the oil-cooled heads as power plants... I've been tempted to put one in a tractor as they sell on eBay between $400 to $800, but they rev pretty high, so I suspect the torque band is all wrong.

That's sad to hear because the old Beemers used to pull pretty good at most rpm's.
Good point... if I could find an older beemer engine it might work well... problem is, it's probably worth more than the whole tractor!!!

How's the Pulling power compared to a k321 / k341?
There IS NO comparison! The TJD keeps pulling like a diesel! The harder you pull a TJD, the more she just claws & digs! The TJD is second here only to my Bush Hog JB with the Kubota 25hp diesel.
