Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat:
- Fuel consumption (economy) is usually presented in L/100km (shows how many liters of fuel it consumes per 100 kilometers) or in MPG (shows how many miles it can go with one gallon of fuel). The fuel efficiency of Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat based on its technical specifications will let it run for 38.6 miles burning one gallon of fuel. It also means that it will burn 6.10 liters on a 100km trip. So if Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat has a tank full of 5 gallons of fuel it can be ridden for 193 miles till we run out of gas. Of course we better make sure we top it up again before that happens.
- 599 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. The engine displacement is measured in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters (l) and for Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat it is 599 cc as per the specifications above.
- 135 mm ground clearance - this is the space between the ground and the lowest part of the chassis of YZF600 Thundercat measured in millimeters or inches. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Bore and stroke diagram of Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat
- Bore and stroke 62x49.6 - 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. According to the technical specifications of Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat its bore is 62 mm and the stroke is 49.6 mm. YZF600 Thundercat has a short stroke engine because in this particular case the bore of the Yamaha engine is bigger that the length of the stroke.
- 12:1 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. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only 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.
- Chain final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. 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 YZF600 Thundercat is chain.
motorcycle with chain final driveIt 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 all chains require keeping an eye on them and proper lubrication when they get dry and cleaning when they get dirty.
- Liquid cooling: cooling the engine and keeping the heat off the biker is one of the concerns in today's motorcycle designs. While air cooled bikes are better cooled while in motion, the liquid cooled motorcycles have pumps, radiators and fans to deal with the heat even at idle speed.Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat  - installation of turn signals
- If you decided to fix the turn signals of your Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat yourself there is nothing to worry about as that is indeed an easy DIY task. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. If they are connected by box connection then just the male and female ends need to be clipped off. There should not be any confusion connecting the new Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat turn signals after they are placed since the wires have been properly marked.Picture of Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat cover
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat are important when choosing one. If any additional aftermarket accessories have been installed on the bike they may have an effect on the dimensions. To provide a better protection a larger cover will be needed if additional panniers, sissy bar or windshield have been fitted on the motorcycle.
