    06 comparison

    Wow,the 2 engines really are almost identical.The big differnce looks like cam shafts.Much more duration on the r1,as well as more intake valve lift.I dont think the fz would like that much duration without the copmression bump.Looks like the combustion Chambers are slightly different also.The exhausts Ports may be larger also,doesnt
    really say.Whats interesting,is the induction system is exactly the same.Trip.Seems like u could drop the r1 in,,,just swap computers.What a sleeper that would be!

      so has anyone tried to swap in the larger generator of a second gen fz into a first gen fz?

      are there any specks of the size of the two units?
      get that much juice out of a first gen and one would be golden and not have any worries about loosing it.

        Interesting that the 1st to 2nd gear ratio changed so much. If I am interpreting correctly the ratio is closer on the 06 than the 05. Anyone know why the change?
        Probably to prevent the increased torque of the FI engine from breaking the gearset.

          The added output is for the EFI. As has been explained in other posts, with a Permanant magnet alternator and a shunt regulator, any energy that you do not use 100% of the time must be converted to heat.

          With that much extra heat, you would probably burn up the stator.

          To have an measurable amount of reserve power generating capability, you have to have a field excited alternator and compatible regulator--like a car or a BMW motorcycle--and re-engineering the bike for this is not a simple matter....

            No because the two systems are not similar in design in any way. The Gen 1 generator rotor is the flywheel on the end of the crankshaft. The Gen 2 generator is indirectly driven and remotely mounted above the transmission.

              Great info even if a little dated since it hasn't changed much
