technical specifications of Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1
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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 on the contrary can travel 35.6 miles with a gallon. Miles per gallon (mpg) is one way of describing the fuel economy of a motorcycle and liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km) is another.
motorcycle tires The producer of each bike specifies the sizes of its front and rear tyre. The right choice also depends on your style of riding, whether you are speeding and riding agressively. Tires have a code of numbers and letters printed on their sides and these are important to be understood properly when looking for matching tires. Firstly the code shows the width of the tire measured in millimeters. Both motorcycles Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 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 aspect ratio of the tire is represented by the second number of the code. The third number shows the size of the rim - its diameter measured in inches. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has bigger ground clearance than Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 (135mm vs 99mm). 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. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface 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 Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 can achieve speed of 241km/h on the highway. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Liquid cooled motorcycle engine
Both motorcycles are liquid cooled. Motorcycles with liquid cooling operate at narrower temperature ranges. Therefore the liquid-cooled engine runs more efficiently and consistently. The liquid (coolant) is forced by the water pump to circulate from the radiator to the engine and back. The temperature is kept at a relatively constant level by a thermostat which turns on a fan to draw more air over the radiator if needed. Water jackets in a liquid cooled engine act as sound insulators and make it quieter.
motorcycle driven by chain Both motorcycles Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - chain. Chain final drives are known for their simplicity and efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle and are one of the most popular final drive options by far. However they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain properly lubricated.
compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Its value for Aprilia Tuono 1000R 2002-2005 is 11.4:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
To keep the engine in good health it is important to observe the good qulity and proper level of the motor oil. 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 oil capacity is 3.7 litres for both bikes according to the technical specs. This oil capacity values are with informative purpose only. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
