FZR 250 engine specs?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by eb six on boost, Feb 3, 2007.

  1. hi,

    ive been searching google to find the following info about my bike (1989) and have not been very lucky :(
    hoping someone on here knows the info or can pass on a link to a site.

    im after, power output, compression ratio, top speed etc


  2. Here ya go:
    Specs look about right - seems the same as the FZ250 that preceded it (which was the first 4 cylinder 250). Top speed's going to vary with sprocket ratio but wouldn't have been any higher than 180kph stock since that's the maximum for all vehicles sold in Japan (and even with altered ratios very unlikely that it'd do more than that with 45 hp whatever the speedo might say).
    Edit: Oh and later models (ie post '94) would have been restricted to 40hp to comply with Japanese regs either by reducing rpm and/or compression. Of course earlier models will have lost compression with age too so unlikely they're still putting out the full 45hp they had when new ;).
  3. bbbbrilliant! thanks fellas
