motorcycle reviews:
Yamaha Honda Suzuki Kawasaki BMW Harley Davidson Aprilia Ducati Triumph KTM Hyosung
A good way to figure out whether Yamaha YZF R1 or Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 is better matching your personal style and requirements is to compare their specifications and features in details. 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. 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. The most appropriate method of exploring them is to actually ride each of them or at least sit on them to see how they feel.

technical specifications of Yamaha YZF R1see data separatelytechnical specifications of Yamaha Fazer FZ-1
The first bike has the advantage of greater compression ratio of 12.7:1 than the other one. 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. 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 YZF R1 which can travel 37.9 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. 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 of these numbers shows how many millimeters the tire is wide. Both motorcycles Yamaha YZF R1 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same width of their tires - 120 mm for the front tire and 190 mm for the rear one. The next number refers to the tire profile. 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.
Both motorcycles have the same ground clearance of 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.
The top speed of 288km/h makes Yamaha YZF R1 the faster of the two motorcycles. The other one (Yamaha Fazer FZ-1) can achieve a maximum speed of 246km/h according to its technical specifications. However sources may vary as to whether these top speed parameters are precise or only approximate.engine of a liquid cooled motorcycle
Both motorcycles are liquid cooled. Liquid-cooled engines have a narrower range of operating temperatures compared to the air-cooled ones. Once the operating temperature is reached (the engine is warmed up), it runs at a pretty constant temperature. 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. Finally this type of cooling makes it is easier to meet emissions and noise regulations and increase power output.
final drive implemented with chain Both motorcycles Yamaha YZF R1 and Yamaha Fazer FZ-1 have the same final drive - chain. Chain drives are by far the most popular final drive technology in the history of motorcycles and are the most economical way to drive power from the engine to the rear wheel. 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.
Compression ratio - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. As mentioned in the information of their technical data the values of the compression ratios are 12.7:1 for Yamaha YZF R1 and 11.5:1 for Yamaha Fazer FZ-1. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. 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.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Engine oils are different types as synthetic, mineral, part-synthetic and they all come at their price and qualities. The engine oil is to be changed on every 3700 miles (or 6000 kilometers) as a general rule. If you you synthetic oil then bigger mileage can be allowed between oil changes. Depending on the oil filter it needs to be replaced on each or every two oil changes. As per the technical specs both motorcycles have the same engine oil capacity of 3.7 litres. When changing the oil it is advisable to put less than the specified oil capacity and to check the level. The proper amount of oil needed is best judged while observing the reading on the level sight window (or the dipstick).
