Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of BMW R1200RT:
- Fuel consumption (fuel economy) measured in L/100km or MPG (miles per gallon) shows how many liters of fuel the motorcycle burns for a 100km rum and respectively how many miles it can run with one gallon of fuel. In the average case BMW R1200RT will burn 5.60 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 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. As we already know its fuel efficiency and fuel tank capacity we can easily calculate that if the tank is full we can ride it 277 miles till we run out of gas. However we better not try it because the gas stations are never where we desperately need them to be.
- 1170 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. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the BMW R1200RT engine is 1170 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 155 mm ground clearance - means that the shortest distance between the ground (considering it is flat) and the chassis of R1200RT is 155 mm. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.BMW R1200RT bore and stroke diagram
- Bore and stroke 101x73 - these parameters may be presented as bore/stroke ratio in some technical specifications. This ratio refers to the diameter of the cylinder bore divided by the length of the piston stroke. The bore diameter of BMW R1200RT is 101 mm and the stroke length is 73 mm as per its technical specification. Because the length of the stroke for this BMW engine is smaller than the diameter of the cylinder (bore) we say that R1200RT has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 12:1 - 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. Premium fuel might be recommended for some motorcycles with high levels of compression ration in order to avoid engine knocking. 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.
- 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. Manufacturers have used all of them over the year and each one has turned out to be a workable technology. The final drive of BMW R1200RT is shaft.
motorcycle with shaft final driveShaft drives are well know from their use in automobiles. The same conception applies when they are used on motorcycles - clean look, smooth movement and minimum maintenance required. Shaft drives on the other hand make the bike more expensive and a bit heavier. If we need to go in details then it should be mentioned that a small amount of power is lost with them because of the moving gears involved.
- 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. Liquid cooling is generally used in multi-cycinder engines with higher horsepower usually found in sport bikes and touring motorcycles to keep the engine in its optimal temperature range for its efficient performance.BMW R1200RT turn signals - replacement
- You can easily find out how to replace the BMW R1200RT turn signals and quickly do it yourself. As the motorcycle turn signals cables are generally color coded it would not be a hassle disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. It could be as simple as disconnecting both the male and female ends if box connection is used. After making sure that the new BMW R1200RT turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.BMW R1200RT protective cover
Motorcycle covers come in different sizes and their sizing chart will help you choose the correct one using the given dimensions of the BMW R1200RT. 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.
