A good way to figure out whether Suzuki GSX-R1000 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. When you know what specifications and features of a motorcycle will make you personally comfortable with it then your choice should be all about this criteria. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. The best way to explore them is to actually sit on these bikes and check how much comfort you get with each of them.

Although Suzuki GSX-R1000 has a bigger engine displacement than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 it doesn't necessarily mean it is more powerful or better performing bike. The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 12.5:1 than the other one. This is the ration of the volumes in the cylinder in two stages of the stroke when the piston is at the lowest and then at the highest point in the cylinder. 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 Suzuki GSX-R1000 which can travel 40.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. When measured in mpg the fuel economy shows how many miles can be traveled with a gallon of fuel. Alternatively when measure in l\100km it shows the fuel consumption in litters per 100 kilometer trip.
front and rear tires The producer of each bike specifies the sizes of its front and rear tyre. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. You need to know what the code designators printed on the tire mean in order to be able to find the proper size for your bike. Firstly the code shows the width of the tire measured in millimeters. Both motorcycles Suzuki GSX-R1000 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 second number show the aspect ratio. And the third number indicats the diameter of the rim 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 Suzuki GSX-R1000 (135mm vs 120mm). 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). This is the shortest line between the body of a motorcycle and the surface of the road.
Suzuki GSX-R1000 appears to be faster than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 with top speed of 288km/h against 246km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Motorcycle with liquid cooling systemThe same method of engine cooling is used on both motorcycles - liquid cooling. Motorcycles with liquid cooling operate at narrower temperature ranges. Once the operating temperature is reached (the engine is warmed up), it runs at a pretty constant temperature. The water pump drives the coolant from the engine into the radiator 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. A liquid-cooled engine happens to be quieter than the air-cooled one because all that liquid that surrounds the engine deadens mechanical noise.
chain final drive The same final drive (chain) is used with these two bikes Suzuki GSX-R1000 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 they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain properly lubricated.
Compression ratio 12.5:1 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 12.5:1. Its value for Suzuki GSX-R1000 is 12.5:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. 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.
To keep the engine in good health it is important to observe the good qulity and proper level of the motor oil. Many different types of engine oils are available as minerral, part-synthetic and synthetic and they all come at different price. 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). Depending on the oil filter it needs to be replaced on each or every two oil changes. Suzuki GSX-R1000 takes 3.6 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 3.7 litres. The values of the oil capacity here can not be used as a precise measurement when changing the oil. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
