Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star:
- 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 specific case the fuel economy of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star allows you to ride 36.8 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 6.40 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. If we know that Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star has a fuel tank capacity of 18.5 liters and its fuel economy is 36.8mpg (based on the technical specifications data above) then we can calculate the run it can achieve with a topped up tank and it is 179 miles.
- 1304 cc engine displacement - that is the volume enclosed by the movement of the pistons from their lower to their upper position in the cylinders. In the common case bigger displacement of the engine means more horse power and more fuel consumption. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star engine is 1304 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 145 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of XVS 1300 Midnight Star measured in millimeters or inches. Lower ground clearance means better handling while higher clearance equals more practicality.Bore and stroke diagram of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star
- Bore and stroke 100x83 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. The bore diameter of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star is 100 mm and the stroke length is 83 mm as per its technical specification. For this particular Yamaha engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that XVS 1300 Midnight Star has a short stroke engine.
- 9.5:1 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.
- Belt final drive: It's hard to tell whether the chain or the shaft or the belt drive is the best way to drive power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle as they all do what they are meant to do and have their own advantages. 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 XVS 1300 Midnight Star is belt.
motorcycle final drive with beltBelts are mostly used on cruisers but can be seen on other bikes as well. They have longer life than chains and don't need constant maintenance. Belts are also cheaper and lighter than shaft drives. On the other hand, compared to the shaft drives they are much cheaper and lighter option, not to mention their economical efficiency in driving power from the engine to the rear wheel.
- Liquid cooling system: motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled and they both have their advantages. 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.How to replace the Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star turn signals
- If you decided to fix the turn signals of your Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star yourself there is nothing to worry about as that is indeed an easy DIY task. 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 XVS 1300 Midnight Star turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Picture of Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star cover
Since the dimensions of the Yamaha XVS 1300 Midnight Star are given in the specs that would help you get the right size motorcycle cover. Please keep in mind that any additional aftermarket accessories can increase the dimensions of the bike. The cover length, width and height might need to be bigger if saddle bags, fairings or backrest have been installed on the motorcycle.
