I suppose there is a bizarro world where physics does not apply to Australia?

Actually, as I read up on it, Hurricanes spin CCW, and Typhoons spin CW which has been a long known fact due to the Coriolis effect. Toilets however are more dictated by size and shape of the toilet and the way water flows into it. So, tests have been done by filling a vat with water and letting it settle to eliminate any filling motion, and then when drained it does travel CW in the southern hemisphere. So, yes, reverse toilet flow is a myth, but the underlying principal is not. In other words you can put a reverse spin on water, but if you don't obstruct nature, the spin will be what the Coriolis effect dictates.

Interesting
Curious also they choose to invest in reverse engineering of an outdated although glorious engine...

Tolerances are more loose for that... each reverse engineering is built like that
also consider the measures sure are metrics... so the engine is heavier than the original from Mo.Co.
... since them would had increased a little the size of each bolt to convert in metric environment

IMO not designed for western markets...
unless they will have the guts to evolve it to Euro 5 standards
in this case perhaps....

chinese are not experienced in build engines... but they learn fast... and well...
let's see for an example how much time they had taken to reach western standards in IT

actually, the chonda engines were better than the actual. they are not loose toleranced especially so if going to a controlled emission region. i have used a lot of them since here in the usa, a lot are discontinued. i find them very worthy and a fraction of the cost.
china isn't the only region, go to south america and you will see the same. when honda chunks a design, they sell it and some time equipment as well to 3rd world regions.
