Comparing the technical specifications of Suzuki M800 Intruder and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is a proper way to figure out which one of these motorcycles matches better your individual preferences and expectations. You certainly have your own comfort zones in speeding, handling and sitting position and these should guide you to your choice of motorcycle. If you compare the motorcycles you are interested in by analysing their technical specifications, features and pictures, the list of favourite ones could be shortened to just a few models. The most appropriate method of exploring them is to actually ride each of them or at least sit on them to see how they feel.

technical specifications of Suzuki M800 Intrudersee data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Suzuki M800 Intruder 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 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 Suzuki M800 Intruder which can travel 42 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 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.
tire sizesEach 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 diameter of the rim is represented by the third number in the code. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
Suzuki M800 Intruder has a better ground clearance of 140mm ( for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 it is 135mm). 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. To say it shortly, this is the smallest of the measures between the road surface and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the bike with higher tested top speed (246km/h). On the other side Suzuki M800 Intruder can achieve speed of 185km/h on the highway. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Motorcycle with liquid cooling system
Suzuki M800 Intruder 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 water pump drives the coolant from the engine into the radiator and back. A fan is turned on if needed by a thermostat to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down. 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.
final drive implemented with chain One of the bikes (Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) has the most frequently used final drive which 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. 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.The Suzuki M800 Intruder 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. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 9.4:1 for Suzuki M800 Intruder and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. 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. 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. Both motorcycles have different oil capacity according to the technical specs - 3.0 litres for Suzuki M800 Intruder and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. The oil capacity here is just to give you a rough idea of how much oil you need on an oil change. The exact amount of oil you pour in is to be judged by the current level shown on the oil level sight window or dipstick.
