To compare the technical specifications and features of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star 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 trying to make your mind on the next motorcycle, your personal levels of comfort should be the leading criteria. After comparing one motorcycle versus another and so on, the circle of favourite models will be then eventually narrowed to several ones. The best way to explore them is to actually sit on these bikes and check how much comfort you get with each of them.

The bigger engine size of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star in comparison to Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 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 Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 which can travel 37.6 miles with one gallon of fuel. Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star on the contrary can travel 36.8 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 producer of each bike specifies the sizes of its front and rear tyre. 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 measured in millimeters is shown first. The profile of the tire is revealed by the second number. 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 Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star has a bigger ground clearance (145mm) than Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 (135mm). The ride height is the other name of the parameter ground clearance which refers to the measure from the tyre base to the underside of the cassis of a motorcycle. That, in other words, is the smallest distance between any mechanical body part of the motorcycle and the surface of the road.
Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is the faster of the two with top speed of 246 kilometers per hour against the max speed of 203 km/h specified to its opponent Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Those two motorcycle use the same cooling system - liquid. The pretty constant ranges of operating temperature are typical for the liquid cooled engines. 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 coolant is circulating into the radiator and back to the engine driven by the water pump. The amount of cooling can be regulated via thermostat, which helps holding the temperature at a relatively constant level. 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 Chain final drive is used with the Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. 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 Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star is driven by a belt.
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. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 9.5:1 for Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. 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.
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. More kilometers between two oil changes is accepted when synthetic oil is used. Some oil filters can be replaced on every second oil change while others are to be replaced on each oil change. Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star takes 3.4 litres of engine oil. The technical specs of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 determines its oil capacity to be 3.7 litres. The oil capacity information is only to get an idea of how much oil roughly will be needed on oilchange. Pouring exactly the proper amount of oil needed is achieved by observing the level sight window or the dipstick marks.
