Looking at the detailed specifications of both motorcycles Yamaha Vmax 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. 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. Then these bikes in question could be best explored on the road where handling, performance and comfort of sitting position can be best felt in action.

Although Yamaha Vmax has a bigger engine displacement than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 it doesn't necessarily mean 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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha Vmax on the contrary can travel 36.2 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.
how to buy motorcycle tires The size of the tyres is specified by the producer for each motorcycle. Picking the proper type that matches your individual style of riding is very essential. 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 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 of the code numbers reffers to the size of the rim and it is measured in inches. Since many internet stores are offering motorcycle tires it is an easy way to get proper pair of tires online at reasonable price.
Yamaha Vmax has bigger ground clearance than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (145mm vs 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). That, in other words, is the smallest distance between any mechanical body part of the motorcycle and the surface of the road.
Comparing the top speed values of both motorcycles we can see that Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster one with 246km/h. As per the technical data of Yamaha Vmax it would be behind it on the highway with 230km/h. 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. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. Therefore the liquid-cooled engine runs more efficiently and consistently. The liquid (coolant) is forced by the water pump to circulate from the radiator to the engine 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. Liquid-cooled engines are usually more forgiving because the hot engine has some surrounding coolant to heat up before causing any damage from overheating.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
final drive implemented with chain One of these two motorcycles (the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) is driven by a 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. Many bikers may complain of the need of constant care though. Since the chain is exposed to dust, sun and rain it needs to be periodically cleaned and properly lubricated.The Yamaha Vmax is driven by shaft.
Compression ratio 11.3:1 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 11.3:1. Its value for Yamaha Vmax is 11.3:1 and for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is 11.5:1 based on the technical data of the motorcycles. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
Motorcycle oil is one of the most important components that keeps the engine running smoothly. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. 3700 miles (6000 km) between oil changes is widely accepted rule. With synthetic oil though you can run as far as 8000 kilometers (5000 miles). The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. Both motorcycles have different oil capacity according to the technical specs - 4.6 litres for Yamaha Vmax and 3.7 litres for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. This oil capacity values are with informative purpose only. 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.
