Yamaha 800 FZ8 2013

The FZ8 has a lot to do with the Z and the GSR in the legs, not to mention the Street Triple much lighter and more efficient. Improving had become more imperative than usual, and 2013 changes the main grievances of the Yamaha roadster. The change is the appearance of adjustments on the fork and the shock absorber.

The pilot will finally be able to adapt the damping to his liking. The FZ8 was strongly criticized for the flexibility of its suspensions, not really adapted to its ilk.
The fork is now adjustable in rebound and compression on the right leg, with spring preload on the left leg. The shock absorber gains a firmer spring (83.4 N / m against 78.4 previously), new settings and a thumbwheel allowing the rebound adjustment.
On the cosmetic side, a special Race Blu color, transparent flashes, and above all, a new silencer in place of the previous horrible saucepan. Refined, refined, the exhaust no longer calls for criticism. More than to blow the breath of the engine block derived from the FZ1.

Enclosed in the large aluminum frame, the 4-cylinder inaugurated a displacement at Yam. With 779 cm3, the FZ8 is stacked on top of the 106 hp barrier. But what interests us is the torque available with this displacement. The FZ8 comes out 8.4 mkg, i.e. 2 mkg more than the old FZ6 (which it took over). In the absence of EXUP, Yam has placed above the injectors of the inlet pipes of different dimensions: 125 mm for cylinders 1 and 4, in the center, 150 mm for cylinders 2 and 3. Thanks to the physical properties of the waves pressure, these ducts optimize filling and inflate curves. As for the character of the boiler, it should be quite close to that of the FZ1. This “small” 800 is a reduction of the 1000 cm3, itself derived from the R1 hypersport. The piston stroke is exactly the same (53.6 mm) while the bore has been reduced by 9 mm to reach 68 mm. A technical choice that favors the couple and their availability. The almost 8-liter air box goes in the same direction.

The technical platform of the FZ8 differs from that of its brother 1000 only on anecdotal points. A rear tire less wide, a few pounds less, a tank less bulging (- 1 liter) and worse that’s all. The cost rationalization policy favors cloning, and this FZ8 is truly an FZ1 on the part-cycle side. We no longer have much to reproach its range: the diamond-type aluminum frame with the engine as a stiffener, the 43 mm inverted fork, 4-piston calipers not radial but very efficient, a superb swinging arm … we would now like a fuller engine, or a 3-cylinder as the prototype of the Cologne 2012 show prefigures. Patience, a roadster full of impertinence is coming.
