2013 Yamaha FZ1 Review and Specifications

2013 Yamaha FZ1

Sprinkle in a few new 2013 models, exciting new paint jobs and very unique new technologies Yamaha Motorcycle has been released new motorcycles For 2013.The 2013 Yamaha FZ1 is a cutting edge sport bike with a twist. Unlike most other machines in this class, the 2013 Yamaha FZ1 features state of the art engine and chassis designs. The twist is you do not have to sacrifice performance or handling to gain excellent rider and passenger comfort… the 2013 Yamaha FZ1 offers it all!

2013 Yamaha FZ1

Think of the 2013 Yamaha FZ1 as an upright R1 ready to take on the world. There’s more fuel-injected power in that smooth 20 valve four-cylinder than most riders will ever use, in a sure fitted chassis. It’s a rider’s best ally, from track days, to commuting, to touring.Crunch the numbers, do the math and then take a seat aboard one of the world’s best “naked” sport bikes.

2013 Yamaha FZ1 Features

Engine:

•Ultra-lightweight 998cc, DOHC, 20-valve, liquid-cooled, 40 degree inclined, in-line four-cylinder engine. The engine has been tuned to provide outstanding performance and excellent passing performance.

•The crankcases, pistons, cylinder and cylinder head are based on the 3rd generation R1 power plant (’04 to ’06).

•Combustion chamber design and squish area has been optimized for maximum sports performance. The compression ratio for the FZ1 is 11.5:1. Red line is set at 12,000 rpm and features a “soft” rev limiter to protect the engine.

•Special lightweight, high lift, high performance intake and exhaust cams help to provide incredible horsepower and fast engine response. Cam profiles and the cam timing are designed to provide for more low to mid range power (Vs R1) .

•Automatic cam chain tensioned reduces both maintenance and mechanical engine noise.

•Lightweight, 3rd generation R1 based crankshaft provides quick engine response.

•Connecting rods are carbonized for strength and durability and use a nut less design. The lower end “cap” of the rod is made from the same piece of material as the upper portion, this design is known as “fracture splitting”. This design aids in establishing true big end roundness and greater precision in con rod dimensions for great durability.

•Closed deck cylinder design allows the cylinders to be spaced more closely together, allowing a narrower engine. The cylinder block is a stand-alone part. The benefit if this design is improved sealing, and easier serviceability.

•Ceramic composite plated cylinder “bores” are a “liner less” design with the ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block to ensure great heat dissipation for consistent power delivery, reduced friction and reduced weight.

•Short skirt, lightweight forged pistons reduce mechanical vibration and improve throttle response.

•3rd generation R1 inspired “stacked” 3-axis gearbox / clutch design stacks input/output shafts to create a low center of gravity and keeps overall engine size shorter front to back. As a result, the stacked design gives the engineers the freedom to place the engine in the frame for optimum front to rear weight balance and thereby maximizing handling

•Smooth shifting 6-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for maximum performance in the “real world”. 5th and 6th ratios are wider (taller) for reduced engine rpms at highway speeds for more relaxed cruising.

•Compact, heavy duty, mulch-plate clutch ensures consistent, positive engagement and uses coil springs (5) and paper based fiber plates (9) to reduce weight.

•Mikuni fuel injection system is based on the 2006 R1 design, featuring 45mm throttle bodies fitted with T.P.S. (Throttle Position Sensor). This style of fuel injection uses dual throttle valves. The secondary or sub throttle valves are motor driven and control the intake air volume for optimum throttle response.

•The actual injectors are Denso “long nose” type injectors with a high dynamic range and 4-spray holes for excellent power and response across the entire rev range.

•Specially designed 8.2-liter air box with intake air temperature sensor maximizes performance. A viscous paper-type air filter is utilized.

•The fuel injection’s lightweight Electronic Control Unit (ECU) utilizes a powerful 32-bit processor for faster control of the injection process. The compact design also reduces weight.

•Yamaha’s patented Exhaust Ultimate Power Valve (EXUP) monitors engine rpm and adjusts exhaust flow for maximum performance at all rpms with no flat spots. This system also optimizes fuel economy and reduces emissions.

•4 into 2 into 1 exhaust system features stainless steel exhaust pipes and a short design silencer / muffler. The header pipe length has been optimized for maximum power delivery. This system is fitted with two 3-way honeycomb catalyzes with an oxygen sensor to reduce harmful CO and HC exhaust emissions.

•High-efficiency curved radiator features compact dual ring-type fans for maximum cooling efficiency. This rad and fan design produces more airflow than conventional flat design rads to maintain optimum engine temperatures for consistent power output. The curved design also allows a shorter wheelbase.

•Large, liquid-cooled oil cooler maintains stable lubricant temperatures for extended engine life. Convenient spin-off oil filter is used.

•Convenient clutch cover sight glass ensures easy oil level inspection.

•Maintenance-free transistor-controlled ignition (TCI) ensures fast starts and great performance at all rpms.

•Air Induction System (AIS … not ram air) reduces harmful HC and CO exhaust emissions for a cleaner environment.
