Spot on Norri !
I must be sounding a bit geeky knowing most of the old bike acronyms, or maybe just old?

TSCC was from the early 1970s 4-stroke Suzuki bikes and stands for Twin swirl combustion chamber.

The only one I ever remembered from school maths.
Sine=opposite/hypotenuse cosine=adjacent/hypotenuse and tangent=opposite/adjacent.

TSCC was from the early 1970s 4-stroke Suzuki bikes and stands for Twin swirl combustion chamber.
TSCC was introduced in 1980 with the GSX series of engines which were 4 valve per cylinder and Suzuki's performance orientated range.
Suzuki's first 4-stroke 2 valve per cylinder GS engine was built from 1976 until 1983 but didn't have TSCC.

I was raised in South Hackensack, New Jersey, so we were always hoping they would open the South Hackensack Institute of Technology. So far it hasn't happened. I don't know why.

Too many to remember from parts/service dep't days (modules, sensors, etc.) - especially since they changed far too often.
My favorites were the ones we made up - the best being I.D.E.F.C. I don't even f***ing care!

FORD was Fix Or Repair Daily.
I can't say what Pontiac was because one word in there is not acceptable in modern society but it's about someone who is poor and old thinking it's a Cadillac.
