Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Kawasaki Versys 1000:
- 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 specific case the fuel economy of Kawasaki Versys 1000 allows you to ride 38.6 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 6.10 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. It can be calculated that Kawasaki Versys 1000 can cover a mileage of 213 miles with a tank full of fuel based on its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity - 21.0 liters.
- Engine displacement of 1043 cc - this refers to the volume described by the movement of a single piston in the cylinder multiplied by the number of the cylinders the engine has. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the Kawasaki Versys 1000 engine is 1043 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 155 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of Versys 1000 measured in millimeters or inches. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Kawasaki Versys 1000 bore and stroke diagram
- 77x56 bore and stroke - this is a term concerning the engine parameters describing the ratio between cylinder bore diameter and piston stroke. If bore and stroke have equal measures then the engine is called square. Based on the technical specifications above Kawasaki Versys 1000 has a bore with diameter of 77 mm and the length of the stroke is 56 mm. Versys 1000 has a short stroke engine because in this particular case the bore of the Kawasaki engine is bigger that the length of the stroke.
- 10.3:1 compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration 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.
- Chain final drive: There are currently three ways to drive power from a motorcycle engine to its rear wheel - chain, belt and shaft drive. Since they all have their specific advantages it is hard to tell the best among them. Each of them has proved to be a successful technology for the years it has been used by bike manufacturers. The final drive of Kawasaki Versys 1000 is chain.
chain final driveIt 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 they are not as smooth as belts and shafts and also require frequent care like cleaning and keeping the chain properly lubricated.
- Liquid cooling system: both air and liquid cooling systems serve the same purpose to keep the engine in an optimal temperature range and they both have their advantages. Although the liquid cooled motorcycle has a radiator and hoses and require more maintenance it provides better regulated temperature to the engine.Kawasaki Versys 1000 turn signals - replacement
- Replacing Kawasaki Versys 1000 turn signals is an easy job and commonly considered a do it yourself project. As the motorcycle turn signals cables are generally color coded it would not be a hassle disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). Complete the installation of the new Kawasaki Versys 1000 turn signals by properly connecting the wires after they are securely mounted.Picture of Kawasaki Versys 1000 cover
Since the dimensions of the Kawasaki Versys 1000 are given in the specs that would help you get the right size motorcycle cover. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. The cover length, width and height might need to be bigger if saddle bags, fairings or backrest have been installed on the motorcycle.
