technical specifications of Suzuki GSX 1250 FAsee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 has a smaller engine displacement than Suzuki GSX 1250 FA 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 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 GSX 1250 FA on the contrary can travel 34.6 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.
bike tiresIf the time to replace your motorcycle tyres has come then you need to find the proper new ones. Your individual riding style is another factor that determines which type is appropriate in your case. 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. The first of these numbers shows how many millimeters the tire is wide. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. The next number refers to the tire profile. The third of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
The ground clearance of 135mm is equal for both motorcycle models. 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. This is the shortest line between the body of a 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 GSX 1250 FA can achieve speed of 233km/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
Suzuki GSX 1250 FA 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. 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. 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. Finally this type of cooling makes it is easier to meet emissions and noise regulations and increase power output.
motorcycle driven by chain Chain final drive is used with both motorcycles - the Suzuki GSX 1250 FA 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. The down points of the chain drive are the frequent maintenance required as it needs to be regularly cleaned and oiled. Besides it is not as smooth as a shaft or belt drive.
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. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 10.5:1 for Suzuki GSX 1250 FA 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. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
One of the most important aspects of the basic level of maintenance of a motorcycle is the engine oil. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. The oil is usually to be changed after 6000km (3700 miles) after the previous oil change. More kilometers between two oil changes is accepted when synthetic oil is used. A good practice is to replace the oil filter with each or every second oil change. As per the technical specs both motorcycles have the same engine oil capacity of 3.7 litres. This oil capacity values are with informative purpose only. Observing the currrent level on the dipstick or the level sight window is the best way to pour the proper amount of oil.
