k&n filter

When it is time for you to choose your k&n air filter it really does pay to do lots of research

March 11th, 2009 @10:15 pm  

Hi guys ne idea abt K&N air filter that fits in my FZ 16… I wan some more of it… 14 PS is not doin it… plz guys suggest how to get more power of it…

April 10th, 2009 @3:31 pm  

actual milage?
pls help me ..
call me..

Yamaha FZ16 has wider tyres, which provides better riding comfort.. But the feedback is it doesn’t have much power than ordinary 150s (cuz of heavier tyres). I am receiving mixed feedback about mileage. Some are having 50-55km/l where else sum only gets 35km/l..

May 11th, 2009 @10:19 pm  

hey friends.. im new here at the forums… nways the thing is that im going to buy fz 16 next month… so i jus wanna ask what is the actual top speed of fz 16.. frankly i like to be a speedy roadster on the streets as well as on long roads(not highways)… i don’t have any doubts abt fz’s acceleration.. but all the i knw is what is its pure top speed.. the company claims it 132kmph but i wanna knw from fz 16′s users… coz the thing is ma friend got pulsar 150cc 2008 model… he ride it on 127kmph(bike was not goin above that) on noida road.. so can fz 16 beat this 127kmph of top speed or not?? coz he’s the only challenge for me among ma friends… though i have seen a fz 16 goin 121kmph in a video on youtube but then also i wanna ask this questions from the user of plzzzz guys help me in this regard as soon as possible coz if ur answer go opposite from what im expecting.. then i have to go for k & n performance kit for fz in order to increase its top speed & all if it can’t able to beat 127kmph range.. ma problem is i can’t take a bike more expensive than fz..& i don’t wanna take common lookin bikes also… sooo plzzz help me out.. so that i ensure that i don’t have to start collecting sm money for k & n performance kit..:(
thank u…

Hi Guneet,

dunno abt the top speed. FZ is havin a power of 14 BHP @ 7500 rpm. Only HUNK is havin a bit more power than FZ (14.4 bhp). All other 150s are havin only abt 13-14 range bhp .. But I ‘ve also heard FZ wont give the output of normal 150′s, cuz of wider tyres. Anyway FZ is a gud byk. It wont make you unhappy. You will hav a smooth ride on it..

Now gettin the top speed of a bike also depends on when you shift your gear. A perfect shift gives you better acceleration and top speed. :) Wishin you all d best to take ur beast to 130 km/h without K&N filters. DRIVE SAFELY ..

June 10th, 2009 @4:04 pm  

hi karthik,
who said FZ16 wont give the output of normal 150’s.
it has the best pulling and pickup in the 150 cc segment.
the only drawback is it gives mielage only around 40 or 45 which other 150 cc will give around 50 or more.
140mm tyre is a tubeless and a radial one so it should not have that much of weight so it does not affect the pickup.
Because of its 13.6nm torque(which other 150cc bikes only offer around 12nm)fz16 has the better pickup.

June 15th, 2009 @12:00 am  

plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz launch yamaha fazer 150cc soon…………..v need to know about its mileage………d company must work hard to improve mileage……………

yamaha fz16 is best looking bike but is its look slightly small?

July 12th, 2009 @7:35 am  

i am driving my red colour of fz from long time excep comfort and confident i get from this bike other thing is useless . There is no mileage only 30 i get and the pick up i get is not good in comparison to other bike .

July 12th, 2009 @7:45 am  

this macho looks yamaha is gets its throttle speed vary slowly . You can say even you accelerlates your bike in maximum but your speed of bike does not increasees according to that . When you drives in the city you always have to drive in low gear.

Some one tell me about the body warranty priod ( colour, engine, etc) of Yahama fz-16.

February 26th, 2010 @12:25 pm  

I installed the K&N filter in my FZ. After installation I washed my bike and when i tired to start it, the bike was dead. It was not starting. Later on I opened the seat cover to see any problem with the new air filter. It was sad to see that water entered through the opening of seat cover and drained the filter. since my filter was installed below the seat cover inside a open black box it was flooded with water. Finally I used a piece of cloth and wiped out the whole water and my bike became alive. Is there any solution for this or any problem with the air filter when it gets wet.

if you can spend extra go for fz or else buy 180 also remember the engine of 180 lasts for 2 years after that you find it as if you are riding a auto rickshaw

March 17th, 2011 @2:53 am  

I had purchased a pulsar150cc back 11months. But my choice is of FZ16, i don’t know why?

the problem is my weight is 50kg approx. and due to light weight i m not having comfort during ridding pulsar. There is no issue for mileage, performanace, etc. But due to weight i m not having a comforatble ride. My height is almost 5’5″. So, pls suggest me should i change my pulsar150 with FZ.
