technical specifications of Honda XV1000V Varaderosee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Honda XV1000V Varadero has a smaller engine displacement than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 but the size if the engine itself is doesn't mean that the bike is more or less powerful. The second bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 11.5:1 than the other one. This ratio is the relation of the volume in the cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of the stroke to the volume in the cylinder when the gas is compressed and the piston is at the top of the stroke. 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 Honda XV1000V Varadero which can travel 37.9 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 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.
how to buy motorcycle tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. To choose the right tire size firstly you need to understand the meaning of the numbers printed on the size of the tire. The width of the tire is represented by the first number. The profile of the tire is revealed by the second number. The third of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. Looking online for motorcycle tires is a good way to easily find the right size at low price.
The ground clearance of Honda XV1000V Varadero (181mm) is bigger than the one of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (bbb2mm). The ground clearance is also called the ride height and that is the distance between the base of the tyre and underside of the motorcycle’s body (the chassis). In other words that is the shortest distance between the road surface and the lowest mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Comparing the top speed values of both motorcycles we can see that Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster one with 246km/h. As per the technical data of Honda XV1000V Varadero it would be behind it on the highway with 202km/h. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Liquid cooled motorcycle engineThe same method of engine cooling is used on both motorcycles - liquid cooling. The pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. The relatively consistent combustion environment of the liquid-cooled engine means that the mixture of fuel and air can be precisely controlled and optimised for better output. The circulation of the coolant from the radiator to the engine is helped by the water pump. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant level. Water jackets in a liquid cooled engine act as sound insulators and make it quieter.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
motorcycle driven by chain The final drive of the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is chain. One of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. Many bikers may complain of the need of constant care though. Since the chain is exposed to dust, sun and rain it needs to be periodically cleaned and properly lubricated.The Honda XV1000V Varadero is driven by shaft.
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. Its value for Honda XV1000V Varadero is 9.8:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
To keep the engine in good health it is important to observe the good qulity and proper level of the motor oil. There are different types at different prices on the market - mineral, highperformance, all-purpose part-synthetic and synthetic oil. As a general rule it should be changed on every 6000 kilometers or 3700 miles. Synthetic oil can be changed less often though. The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. Honda XV1000V Varadero takes 4.1 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 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.
