technical specifications of Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300)see data separatelytechnical specifications of BMW K1600GT

BMW K1600GT has bigger engine size than Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) but this is not a direct indicator for more power or better performance. The bigger compression ratio of 12.2:1 belongs to the second bike. This represents the biggest volume of the cylinder when the piston is located at the lowest point of the stroke compared to the minimum volume of the cylinder when the piston is at the highest point of the stroke. The bigger compression ratio means that the fuel/air mixture in the combustion chamber has a greater pressure and is burnt more effectively and therefore such a bike would have better fuel economy (talking about equal engine displacement).
One of the advantages of Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) compared to BMW K1600GT is the better fuel economy of 57.4 mpg it has. The other bike has a fuel economy of 41.3 mpg. When measured in mpg the fuel economy shows how many miles can be traveled with a gallon of fuel. Alternatively when measure in l\100km it shows the fuel consumption in litters per 100 kilometer trip.
tire sizes The producer of each bike specifies the sizes of its front and rear tyre. The right choice also depends on your style of riding, whether you are speeding and riding agressively. To choose the right tire size firstly you need to understand the meaning of the numbers printed on the size of the tire. The first of these numbers shows how many millimeters the tire is wide. After that comes the aspect ration shown by the second number in the code. How many inches is the diameter of the rim - that is what the tird number reveals. Since many internet stores are offering motorcycle tires it is an easy way to get proper pair of tires online at reasonable price.
BMW K1600GT has a better ground clearance of 165mm ( for Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) it is 140mm). The distance between the chassis and the base of the tyre is called ride height or also ground clearance of a motorcycle and is usually given in millimeters in the technical specifications. That, in other words, is the smallest distance between any mechanical body part of the motorcycle and the surface of the road.
BMW K1600GT appears to be faster than Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) with top speed of 250km/h against 180km/h for the other bike. Those speed parameters of course may vary from different sources and in many occasions they are based on owners reviews.Liquid cooled motorcycle engineThe same method of engine cooling is used on both motorcycles - liquid cooling. Motorcycles with liquid cooling operate at narrower temperature ranges. Keeping the operating temperature at a very narrow range allows many engine components to be optimised for these temperatures. The circulation of the coolant from the radiator to the engine is helped by the water pump. A fan is turned on if needed by a thermostat to draw more air over the radiator in case the motorcycle slows down. A liquid-cooled engine happens to be quieter than the air-cooled one because all that liquid that surrounds the engine deadens mechanical noise.
As per their technical specifications both motorcycles have different types of final drive implementation.
motorcycle driven by chain One of the bikes (Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300)) has the most frequently used final drive which is chain. It 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 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.The BMW K1600GT is driven by shaft.
Compression ratio - 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. The compressio ratio of BMW K1600GT is 12.2:1 and it is 10.6:1 for Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) according to the motorcycles technical data above. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
Engine oil is among the most important aspects of an engines health. Synthetic engine oils are considered the most technically advanced one and are more expensive than the mineral oils which come at lower price. 3700 miles (6000 km) between oil changes is widely accepted rule. If you you synthetic oil then bigger mileage can be allowed between oil changes. The oil filter needs to be replaced too and that is usually to be done with the oil change. The oil capacity of Kawasaki Ninja 300 (EX 300) is 2.8 litres and the engine oil of BMW K1600GT is 4.5 litres as per their technical specs. The oil capacity here is just to give you a rough idea of how much oil you need on an oil change. Pouring exactly the proper amount of oil needed is achieved by observing the level sight window or the dipstick marks.
