Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Yamaha MT-09 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. 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. A good way to find the most suitable one among them would be to sit on each of them and if possible ride it for a while.

technical specifications of Yamaha MT-09see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1

Yamaha MT-09 has a smaller engine displacement than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 but the size if the engine itself is doesn't mean that the bike is more or less powerful. 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 Yamaha MT-09 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. Miles per gallon (mpg) is one way of describing the fuel economy of a motorcycle and liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km) is another.
motorcycle tiresEach motorcycle should be fitted with the type of tyres that are specified for it. Another considerable factor here is your own riding style. To get the proper tire size requires that you know the meaning of the numbers and letters printed on the side of each tire. The width of the tire is represented by the first number. Both motorcycles have the same with of their front tires - 120 mm. The aspect ratio of the tire is represented by the second number of the code. The third number shows the size of the rim - its diameter measured in inches. A good way to save some time and money is to purchase your motorcycle tires online at competitive price.
The measure of the ground clearance is the same for both motorcycles - 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 other words that is the shortest distance between the road surface and the lowest mechanical part of the motorcycle.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 appears to be faster than Yamaha MT-09 with top speed of 246km/h against 22km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled 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. Once the operating temperature is reached (the engine is warmed up), it runs at a pretty constant temperature. The coolant is circulating into the radiator and back to the engine driven by the water pump. 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. Liquid-cooled engines are usually more forgiving because the hot engine has some surrounding coolant to heat up before causing any damage from overheating.
motorcycle driven by chain The same final drive (chain) is used with these two bikes Yamaha MT-09 and 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 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. Its value for Yamaha MT-09 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. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
To keep the engine in good health it is important to observe the good qulity and proper level of the motor oil. Engine oils are different types as synthetic, mineral, part-synthetic and they all come at their price and qualities. It is commonly accepted engine oil to be changed on every 3700 miles (6000 kilometers). The quality of the synthetic oil allows up to 5000 miles (8000 km) between oil changes. Depending on the oil filter it needs to be replaced on each or every two oil changes. The oil capacity of Yamaha MT-09 is 3.4 litres and the engine oil of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres as per their technical specs. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
