Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic:
- 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 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic will burn a gallon of fuel on every 43.6 miles of your trip or 5.40 liters on every 100km. Taken into consideration that it has a 17.0 liters (or 4.5 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic can run 315 kilometers or 195 miles with a full fuel tank.
- 1063 cc engine displacement (engine size) - this is the total swept volume of all the pistons in the cylinders when they are performing a complete stroke. In the common case bigger displacement of the engine means more horse power and more fuel consumption. The engine displacement is measured in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters (l) and for Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic it is 1063 cc as per the specifications above.
- 140 mm ground clearance - this can be defined as the distance between the lowest point of the V-Star 1100 Classic's chassis and the level ground surface below it. Usually off-road bikes have higher ground clearance while sport bikes have lower ground clearance.Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic bore and stroke explaination
- 95x75 bore and stroke - bore is the diameter of the piston which equals the inside diameter of the engine cylinder. On the other hand stroke is the maximum length that the piston travels up and down inside the cylinder every stroke. The technical specification of Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic shows that its bore and stroke measures are 95 mm and 75 mm. If bore is bigger than stroke as it is with this Yamaha engine then we say that V-Star 1100 Classic has a short stroke engine.
- 8.3:1 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. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. With internal combustion engines the higher compression ratio allows higher efficiency because the combustion temperature is reached with less fuel.
- Shaft 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. Bikes have been designed with all three variations of the final drive for many years and each of them has performed well for the purpose it's been used. The final drive of Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic is shaft.
shaft driven motorcycleMainly 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. Shaft drives have their own minor disadvantages though - higher cost reflecting on the final price of the motorcycle and compared to chain and belt drives they are the less economical one because of the minor loss of power caused by the moving gears in a shaft drive.
- Air cooling system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. Air cooling is generally used in twin-cylinder engines with lower horsepower usually found in cruisers and dirt bikes.Turn signals of Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic
- Replacing Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic turn signals is an easy job and commonly considered a do it yourself project. Generally the motorcycle turn signals wires are color coded and disconnecting them is not a problem. If they are connected by box connection then just the male and female ends need to be clipped off. After making sure that the new Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Picture of Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic cover
The dimensions of the Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic 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. The cover length, width and height might need to be bigger if saddle bags, fairings or backrest have been installed on the motorcycle.
