Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is a proper approach to determine which of the two is more likely to match your style of riding and to satisfy your preferences. Your choice of motorcycle should be all about your individual preferences and comfort level. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. Then the most appropriate judgement can be made when each of them is taken for a real ride.

technical specifications of Suzuki GSF1250S Banditsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit in comparison to Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 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. This represents the biggest volume of the cylinder when the piston is located at the lowest point of the stroke compared to the minimum volume of the cylinder when the piston is at the highest point 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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit on the contrary can travel 34.6 miles with a gallon. Measuring the fuel economy in mpg shows how many miles of ride are covered by a gallon of fuel and measuring in l/100km shows the average fuel consumption in litters for every 100 kilometers riding.
motorcycle tires Motorcycle tyres come in variety of sizes and these sizes are strongly specified for each model. Your type of riding is also to be taken into account here. 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. The first number is the width of the tire in millimeters. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. After that comes the aspect ration shown by the second number in the code. The third of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. Buying motorcycle tires online can save you precious time and cash.
Both motorcycle models have the same measure of 135mm for their ground clearance. The ride height is the other name of the parameter ground clearance which refers to the measure from the tyre base to the underside of the cassis of a motorcycle. That, in other words, is the smallest distance between any mechanical body part of the motorcycle and the surface of the road.
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 Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit it would be behind it on the highway with 226km/h. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.liquid cooling system of a motorcycle
Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both liquid cooled. The tiny variations of the operating temperatures are one of the significant advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles. Once the operating temperature is reached (the engine is warmed up), it runs at a pretty constant temperature. The main principle is circulation of the liquid between the radiator and the engine. 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. However the water pump, the thermostat, the radiator and all the linking gear makes it a bit more complex.
motorcycle driven by chain Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit and the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Most motorcycles are produced with chain drive because of its economical way to transfer power to the rear wheel and convey the biggest percentage of engine power in that process. 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 Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit is 10.5:1 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. Higher compression ratio means bigger pressure of the fuel/air mix in the combustion chamber and better efficiency achieved of its ignition.
Motorcycle oil is one of the most important components that keeps the engine running smoothly. Mineral and part-synthetic engine oils are cheaper when it comes to price in comparison with the most technically advanced synthetic motor oils. The engine oil is to be changed on every 3700 miles (or 6000 kilometers) as a general rule. With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). Replacing the oil filter is also to be considered on each engine oil change. The oil capacity of Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit is 3.5 litres and the engine oil of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres as per their technical specs. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. Observing the currrent level on the dipstick or the level sight window is the best way to pour the proper amount of oil.
