Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Kawasaki Z1000SX:
- 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). It means that based on its technical specifications Kawasaki Z1000SX will burn a gallon of fuel on every 37.9 miles of your trip or 6.20 liters on every 100km. If we know that Kawasaki Z1000SX has a fuel tank capacity of 19.0 liters and its fuel economy is 37.9mpg (based on the technical specifications data above) then we can calculate the run it can achieve with a topped up tank and it is 190 miles.
- 1043 cc engine displacement - that is the volume enclosed by the movement of the pistons from their lower to their upper position in the cylinders. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. The displacement is commonly specified in cc (cubic centimeters) or liters and based on the Kawasaki Z1000SX specifications its engine displacement is 1043 cubic centimeters.
- 135 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of Z1000SX measured in millimeters or inches. Lower ground clearance means better handling while higher clearance equals more practicality.Kawasaki Z1000SX bore and stroke explaination
- 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. According to the technical specifications of Kawasaki Z1000SX its bore is 77 mm and the stroke is 56 mm. For this particular Kawasaki engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that Z1000SX has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 11.8:1 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. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Chain final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. All three variations of final drive have been used for a very long time and each of them has proved to be successful one. The final drive of Kawasaki Z1000SX 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. While air cooled bikes are better cooled while in motion, the liquid cooled motorcycles have pumps, radiators and fans to deal with the heat even at idle speed.Turn signals of Kawasaki Z1000SX
- If the Kawasaki Z1000SX turn signals need to be replaced you do not need to look around for a professional to fix that problem. Disconnecting the wires of the motorcycle turn signals is not a hassle as usually they are color coded. It could be as simple as disconnecting both the male and female ends if box connection is used. Connect the wires properly after the new Kawasaki Z1000SX turn signals are placed in position.Picture of Kawasaki Z1000SX cover
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Kawasaki Z1000SX are important when choosing one. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. A larger cover will be needed if the motorcycle has an additional backrest, sissy bar or panniers fitted.
