Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Yamaha YZF R1:
- 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). The fuel efficiency of Yamaha YZF R1 based on its technical specifications will let it run for 37.9 miles burning one gallon of fuel. It also means that it will burn 6.20 liters on a 100km trip. Taken into consideration that it has a 18.0 liters (or 4.8 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Yamaha YZF R1 can run 290 kilometers or 180 miles with a full fuel tank.
- 998 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. Bigger displacement volume usually means more powerful motorcycle engine and less miles per gallon. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the Yamaha YZF R1 engine is 998 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 135 mm or 5.3 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of YZF R1 not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. Motorcycles with lower ground clearance would have better handling as their center of gravity will be lower than average.Bore and stroke of Yamaha YZF R1 engine
- 78x52.2 bore and stroke - bore is indeed the size of the piston presented by its diameter and stroke is the depth of the piston measured from top to bottom. The stroke value actually represents the distance that the piston undergo in one stroke. According to the technical specifications of Yamaha YZF R1 its bore is 78 mm and the stroke is 52.2 mm. If bore is bigger than stroke as it is with this Yamaha engine then we say that YZF R1 has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 12.7:1 of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. Higher compression ratio means bigger pressure of the fuel/air mix in the combustion chamber and better efficiency achieved of its ignition.
- Chain final drive: There are currently three ways to drive power from a motorcycle engine to its rear wheel - chain, belt and shaft drive. Since they all have their specific advantages it is hard to tell the best among them. All three variations of final drive have been used for a very long time and each of them has proved to be successful one. The final drive of Yamaha YZF R1 is chain.
final drive implemented with chainOne of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. 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 system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. 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 YZF R1 turn signals - replacement
- Replacing Yamaha YZF R1 turn signals is an easy job and commonly considered a do it yourself project. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. The next step is to locate the bolts that hold them in position. Connect the wires properly after the new Yamaha YZF R1 turn signals are placed in position.Picture of Yamaha YZF R1 cover
Since the dimensions of the Yamaha YZF R1 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. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.
