Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Honda VFR 1200F:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). In the average case Honda VFR 1200F will burn 6.40 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 36.8 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 18.5 liters (or 4.9 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Honda VFR 1200F can run 289 kilometers or 179 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 1237 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. It is usually measured in cc (cubic centimeters) or l (liters) and according to the specifications above Honda VFR 1200F has an engine displacement of 1237 cubic centimeters.
- 160 mm or 6.3 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of VFR 1200F not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. Motorcycles with lower ground clearance would have better handling as their center of gravity will be lower than average.Bore and stroke measures of Honda VFR 1200F
- Bore and stroke 81x60 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. Based on the technical specifications above Honda VFR 1200F has a bore with diameter of 81 mm and the length of the stroke is 60 mm. For this particular Honda engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that VFR 1200F has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 12:1 - 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. 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.
- Shaft final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. Manufacturers have used all of them over the year and each one has turned out to be a workable technology. The final drive of Honda VFR 1200F is shaft.
picture of shaft final driveMainly used with power cruisers and touring bikes, the shaft drives provide smooth way to deliver power to the rear wheel. Shaft drives are quiet, clean and don't really need much care, except changing their oil after gaining certain amount of miles on the odometer. There are some down points though - they are expensive and heavier than the other two final drive options. Another disadvantage is the lost of power, being it minimum, caused by the moving gears inside them.
- Liquid cooling system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. Liquid cooling is better for the engine in high traffic and speeding but its biggest advantage is that liquid cooled engines tend to produce more horsepower.Honda VFR 1200F  - installation of turn signals
- If the Honda VFR 1200F turn signals need to be replaced you do not need to look around for a professional to fix that problem. Generally the motorcycle turn signals wires are color coded and disconnecting them is not a problem. After locating the bolts that hold them in position you will have to remove them. Connect the wires properly after the new Honda VFR 1200F turn signals are placed in position.Bike cover for Honda VFR 1200F
The dimensions of the Honda VFR 1200F are important when choosing a motorcycle cover. If any additional aftermarket accessories have been installed on the bike they may have an effect on the dimensions. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.
