Picture of Yamaha - R6R6

Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Yamaha R6:
- 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 Yamaha R6 will burn 5.50 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 42.8 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. If we know that Yamaha R6 has a fuel tank capacity of 17.0 liters and its fuel economy is 42.8mpg (based on the technical specifications data above) then we can calculate the run it can achieve with a topped up tank and it is 192 miles.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 599 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. In the common case the bigger the displacement volume the more powerful the engine and lesser fuel economy. The Yamaha R6 engine has a displacement volume of 599 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 130 mm ground clearance - means that the shortest distance between the ground (considering it is flat) and the chassis of R6 is 130 mm. Lower ground clearance means better handling while higher clearance equals more practicality.Bore and stroke of Yamaha R6 engine
- 67x42.5 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. The technical specification of Yamaha R6 shows that its bore and stroke measures are 67 mm and 42.5 mm. R6 has a short stroke engine because in this particular case the bore of the Yamaha engine is bigger that the length of the stroke.
- Compression ratio 13.1:1 - 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. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
- 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. Manufacturers have used all of them over the year and each one has turned out to be a workable technology. The final drive of Yamaha R6 is chain.
motorcycle driven by chainChain final drives are known for their simplicity and efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle and are one of the most popular final drive options by far. However chains have their down points - more frequent need of maintenance (lubrication and cleaning) which means that a biker should always keep an eye on the chain especially in rainy days or dusty roads.
- Liquid cooling: the constant cooling of the motorcycle engine is mandatory for its efficiency and durability. 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.Yamaha R6 turn signals - replacement
- If the Yamaha R6 turn signals need to be replaced you do not need to look around for a professional to fix that problem. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). Connect the wires properly after the new Yamaha R6 turn signals are placed in position.Bike cover for Yamaha R6
When choosing a motorcycle cover the dimensions of the Yamaha R6 should be taken into consideration. Please keep in mind that any additional aftermarket accessories can increase the dimensions of the bike. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.
