technical specifications of Aprilia SL SHIVER 750see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. The second bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.5:1 than the other one. It represents the relation between the biggest and the smallest volume in the combustion chamber while the piston is performing its stroke movement. When the mixture of air and fuel in the combustion chamber has bigger pressure (higher compression ratio) when it is ignited then it burns more effectively and therefore these bikes tend to have better fuel economy (comparing engines with equal displacement).
The bike with a better fuel economy is the Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 which can travel 43.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. When measured in mpg the fuel economy shows how many miles can be traveled with a gallon of fuel. Alternatively when measure in l\100km it shows the fuel consumption in litters per 100 kilometer trip.
tire sizesIf the time to replace your motorcycle tyres has come then you need to find the proper new ones. Picking the proper type that matches your individual style of riding is very essential. The code designators located on the side of each tires is something that you should be aware of if you want to find proper tires for your bike. Firstly the code shows the width of the tire measured in millimeters. Both motorcycles Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same width of their tires - 120 mm for the front tire and 190 mm for the rear one. The profile of the tire is revealed by the second number. The third number shows the size of the rim - its diameter measured in inches. Prices of motorcycle tires can easily be compared online and purchesed at good price.
The ground clearance (ride height) of Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 is 130mm and is smaller than the clearance of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which is 135mm. The distance between the chassis and the base of the tyre is called ride height or also ground clearance of a motorcycle and is usually given in millimeters in the technical specifications. In simple terms that would be the shortest line among all the lines drawn between the surface of the road and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 can achieve speed of 224km/h on the highway. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Motorcycle with liquid cooling system
Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 is liquid cooled and so is the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. Therefore the liquid-cooled engine runs more efficiently and consistently. The water pump drives the coolant from the engine into the radiator and back. A thermostat turns on an electric fan to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down and the air flowing through the radiator is not enough to cool the liquid inside it to the desired level. Liquid-cooled engines are usually more forgiving because the hot engine has some surrounding coolant to heat up before causing any damage from overheating.
final drive implemented with chain Both motorcycles Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - chain. It is a fact that the majority of motorcycles around the world are driven by chains. Chains are simple and efficient way to transmit horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel. However all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
Compression ratio Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. Based on the information from the technical data of the motorcycles the values are accordingly 11:1 for Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
Motorcycle oil is one of the most important components that keeps the engine running smoothly. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. As a general rule it should be changed on every 6000 kilometers or 3700 miles. With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. The technical specs show that the Aprilia SL SHIVER 750 takes 3.2 litres of engine oil while the oil capacity of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres. When changing the oil it is advisable to put less than the specified oil capacity and to check the level. Pouring exactly the proper amount of oil needed is achieved by observing the level sight window or the dipstick marks.
