The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Suzuki V-Strpm 650 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 parameter shows how the volume in the engine cylinder when the piston is at the bottom end relates to the volume when the piston is at the top end. 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 V-Strpm 650 which can travel 46.1 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.
bike tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. 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. 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.
As per the data sheets Suzuki V-Strpm 650 has a bigger ground clearance (175mm) than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (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. In simple terms that would be the shortest line among all the lines drawn between the surface of the road and any mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster of the two with top speed of 246 kilometers per hour against the max speed of 185 km/h specified to its opponent Suzuki V-Strpm 650. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Liquid cooled engine of a motorcycleThe same method of engine cooling is used on both motorcycles - liquid cooling. The tiny variations of the operating temperatures are one of the significant advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles. Therefore liquid cooled motors can run with carburetion set to burn all the fuel in the mixture. The main principle is circulation of the liquid between the radiator and the engine. 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.
final drive implemented with chain Suzuki V-Strpm 650 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both driven by chain. It is a fact that the majority of motorcycles around the world are driven by chains. Chains are simple and efficient way to transmit horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel. However all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
Compression ratio of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. The value of the compression ratio of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the information in its technical data and for Suzuki V-Strpm 650 the ratio is 11.2:1. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
Motorcycle oil is one of the most important components that keeps the engine running smoothly. Many different types of engine oils are available as minerral, part-synthetic and synthetic and they all come at different price. It is commonly accepted engine oil to be changed on every 3700 miles (6000 kilometers). Synthetic oil can be changed less often though. 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 - 2.9 litres for Suzuki V-Strpm 650 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 best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
