Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Suzuki GSF650S 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. It is not unusual to find it hard to find the most suitable motorcycle and comparing the technical specifications and pictures will help to shorten the list of favourite ones to just a few models. Then these bikes in question could be best explored on the road where handling, performance and comfort of sitting position can be best felt in action.

technical specifications of Suzuki GSF650S Banditsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Suzuki GSF650S Bandit doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. Both bikes has the same compression ratio of 11.5:1. 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.
The bike with a better fuel economy is the Suzuki GSF650S Bandit which can travel 38.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. The fuel economy of a motorcycle is either measured in mpg or l/100km, the first showing how many miles can be ridden with a gallon of fuel and the second showing how many litters of fuel are consumed on a 100km ride.
tire sizes The size of the tyres is specified by the producer for each motorcycle. Your individual riding style is another factor that determines which type is appropriate in your case. To get the proper tire size requires that you know the meaning of the numbers and letters printed on the side of each tire. Firstly the code shows the width of the tire measured in millimeters. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. The profile of the tire is revealed by the second number. The diameter of the rim is represented by the third number in the code. Looking online for motorcycle tires is a good way to easily find the right size at low price.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a better ground clearance of 135mm ( for Suzuki GSF650S Bandit it is 130mm). Usually given in millimeters in the technical data sheets, the ground clearance refers to the space between ground level and underside of a motorcycle’s chassis and sometimes is called ride height. That, in other words, is the smallest distance between any mechanical body part of the motorcycle and the surface of the road.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Suzuki GSF650S Bandit can achieve speed of 210km/h on the highway. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Those two motorcycle use the same cooling system - liquid. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. 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 coolant is circulating into the radiator and back to the engine driven by the water pump. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant level. However the water pump, the thermostat, the radiator and all the linking gear makes it a bit more complex.
chain final drive The same final drive (chain) is used with these two bikes Suzuki GSF650S Bandit and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Chain drives are by far the most popular final drive technology in the history of motorcycles and are the most economical way to drive power from the engine to the rear wheel. However chains have their down points - more frequent need of maintenance (lubrication and cleaning) which means that a biker should always keep an eye on the chain especially in rainy days or dusty roads.
Compression ratio 11.5:1 means that the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke refers to the volume of gas when the piston is at the top of its stroke as 11.5:1. Its value for Suzuki GSF650S Bandit is 11.5:1 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. If you got a motorcycle with a greater compression ratio for its specific engine it is getting better fuel economy than it would if it had a lesser compression ratio.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Engine oils are different types as synthetic, mineral, part-synthetic and they all come at their price and qualities. As a general rule it should be changed on every 6000 kilometers or 3700 miles. More kilometers between two oil changes is accepted when synthetic oil is used. Replacing the oil filter is also to be considered on each engine oil change. The technical specs show that the Suzuki GSF650S Bandit takes 3.3 litres of engine oil while the oil capacity of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres. The oil capacity here is just to give you a rough idea of how much oil you need on an oil change. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
