To compare the technical specifications and features of Yamaha R6 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is a good way to find out which one of these motorcycles will better match your style and requirements. 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. It is not unusual to find it hard to find the most suitable motorcycle and comparing the technical specifications and pictures will help to shorten the list of favourite ones to just a few models. Then the most appropriate judgement can be made when each of them is taken for a real ride.

The bigger engine size of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 in comparison to Yamaha R6 doesn't mean that it is more powerful or better performing bike. The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 13.1:1 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 Yamaha R6 which can travel 42.8 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 on the contrary can travel 37.6 miles with a gallon. There are two ways of showing the fuel economy of a motorcycle - describing how many miles it can travel with a single gallon of fuel (mpg) or how many litters of fuel it is burning on a 100 kilometer trip (l\100km).
front and rear tires The size of the tyres is specified by the producer for each motorcycle. Your type of riding is also to be taken into account here. 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. 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. How many inches is the diameter of the rim - that is what the tird number reveals. Buying motorcycle tires online can save you precious time and cash.
The ground clearance (ride height) of Yamaha R6 is 130mm and is smaller than the clearance of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which is 135mm. 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.
Yamaha R6 appears to be faster than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 with top speed of 260km/h against 246km/h for the other bike. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.Liquid cooled engine of a motorcycle
Yamaha R6 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 are both liquid cooled. The pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. Therefore the liquid-cooled engine runs more efficiently and consistently. The main principle is circulation of the liquid between the radiator and the engine. 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. Water jackets in a liquid cooled engine act as sound insulators and make it quieter.
motorcycle driven by chain Both motorcycles Yamaha R6 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - 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 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. The compressio ratio of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 and it is 13.1:1 for Yamaha R6 according to the motorcycles technical data above. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. There are different types at different prices on the market - mineral, highperformance, all-purpose part-synthetic and synthetic oil. 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). A good practice is to replace the oil filter with each or every second oil change. The oil capacity of Yamaha R6 is 3.4 litres and the engine oil of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 3.7 litres as per their technical specs. When changing the oil it is advisable to put less than the specified oil capacity and to check the level. The best way to pour the exact quantity of oil is to observe the dipstick or the level sight window.
