    With car engines 1 is almost always the cylinder closest to the timing chain, so there is some logic here. Lots of bike engines, certainly older ones, had a central timing chain so I suppose to the left to right convention made sense.

    OK. I didn't know that about the camshaft timing end being where the cylinders number from, but it makes sense. Thanks for that bit of logic.
