About This Club

Welcome to XMAX SG! Share information, news and knowledge related to the Yamaha X-Max! Everyone are welcomed to initiate meetups and riding trips!
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Juz bought a new xmax.. where to buy a sporty short windshield?
  3. Hi, Can anyone share their experience on how to do a proper running in for Xmax 300? According to the manual is riding not more than 4500rpm for the first 1000km. Then not more than 5400rpm for 1000km - 1600km. Anyone here went for the free first 2 servicing with agent?
  4. Bear's Garage, another very popular workshop among the XMax community, has chimed in to share their 2 cents on the whole XMax engine oil consumption issue (WARNING: The pictures looks NASTY!!): The Yamaha XMAX 300, one of the more popular models on the road now. With it's decent fuel consumption vs power, massive underseat compartment and array of aftermarket accessories, there is no wonder why these bikes sell like hotcakes. There is however, a big issue with the XMAX that majority of riders know about. In a lot of cases, the engine consumes engine oil at a higher rate compared to other bikes in it's class, even low mileage bikes, and it gets worse with time. This particular one we're documenting isn't as lucky. If you look at the pictures carefully, excessive piston blow-by is the culprit that stained this 30,000km+ engine causing the crankcase area to turn brown compared to other parts of the engine. Lack of lubrication has caused the piston to seize and stick to the cylinder walls. No visible engine oil leaks can be seen upon inspection, so the engine oil must have gone somewhere right? Now the engine needs a cylinder and piston kit replacement. The signs are there: knocking sounds, white smoke emitted from the exhaust and a strong smoky smell(from the burning of engine oil) everytime you stop the bike. The only precaution you can take for now is to make sure the engine oil never drops below minimum so that the engine has the proper lubrication it needs. Until we see better quality aftermarket parts replacements, we can only offer factory original parts as repair. So take a peek at that engine oil level once every few days, because it's good practise (for riders of all bikes) and it'll save your wallet from damage in the long run. In the mean time, look at these before and enjoy the after pictures.
  5. Seems like a pretty cool mod, integrated sideboxes with LED turn signals (non-LTA approved though) for the XMax 250/300/400. Just nice for when the borders are open! Priced at S$450 for just the sideboxes. Sold by Dmax Accessories Motorshop based out of Indonesia: https://www.facebook.com/groups/xmaxSG/permalink/628183901180861/
  6. Seems like there are a couple of new colours launched for the XMax 300 for the 2021 model year. The light matt grey with blue accent looks pretty sick. What do you think? P.S. These colours might be for the XMaxes in Indonesia / Thailand and not Singapore agent HL's model range.
  7. The Yamaha XMax has a common problem among many owners here in Singapore whereby there is excessive usage of the bike's engine oil leading to the oil level falling to dangerously low levels in shorts periods of time. There was a recent case whereby an XMax owner checked his engine oil level and was shocked to see the the oil level port was almost completely empty! To prevent engine damage or expensive repair bills, always make sure to: Check your engine oil level weekly Make sure your XMax is on the mainstand to ensure accurate oil levels Check oil level after the engine has warmed up and is up to operating temperature Follow the oil service interval as stated in your manual or even more frequent if you are a heavy user Use only approved engine oil for your XMax From bro Hakim, From workshop Gusto Bro:
  8. Got a question by William in the Yamaha XMax group: Simple answer is - Go for the XMax 300, without a doubt. There is a reason why the XMax 300 is the most popular model on our roads, i'd say almost 95% of all Xmax on the roads are the 300 variant. Pros of the XMax 300 compared to the 250 or 400: Agent unit Official warranty backed by Yamaha Excellent fuel economy Latest platform, engine, and parts Euro 4 (2021 model onwards will be updated to Euro 5) Plenty of parts and accessories LTA approved exhaust options are available XMax 250: Created for Malaysia market where their "Class 2B" allows for engine cc up to 250cc Slower than 300, struggles to reach 100km/h or more Lighter than the XMax 300 Slightly cheaper road tax Lower resale value (it might cost you MORE in depreciation for a 250 compared to the 300!) Uses older parts from the Yamaha Majesty and XMax 400 Minimal/No dealer support as non-agent bike As bro Abdul Hakim said about the XMax 250, XMax 400 Oldest of all 3 variants Uses old engine from Yamaha Majesty Poor fuel economy Difficult to find parts Poor resale value Minimal/No dealer support as not official agent bike Point is, just go for the XMax 300 unless there is a compelling reason otherwise. For those who have bought the 250 or 400, just enjoy your ride!

  9. just a heads up to all bros here.. saw on xmax groupchat that naked handlebar actually failed inspection at JIC jurong.. this is one of the most popular mods for xmax and even nmax.. maybe authorities are starting to clamp down now. although some bros managed to pass at viacom changi or sin ming.. seems like depends on the tester and also the centre u go to. from group chat p.s if u need stock setup.. can try to go to gusto bro.. they do a lot of naked handlebar setup should have some spare stock parts lying around.. or borrow from your friend to pass inspection while you slowly try to find back stock parts good luck my xmax bros
  10. who said xmax can't go off road? power this xmax shared by my thai friends.. maybe can outrun my DRZ also..
  11. XMAX SG has grown to become one of the largest and most active motorcycle clubs in Singapore due to the large number of Yamaha XMAX on our roads. Having tons of aftermarket parts and mods also means that there are some very unique XMAX bikes within the club. Thanks to Pro TwoWheeler for sharing these pictures. And also good to see some guys from the recent Chong Aik International Wheels of Love event also taking part in the XMAX SG ride. Good on you guys! Enjoy the pictures!

  12. at least xmax got option for aftermarket exhaust.. guys in the cb150r group have been waitin for a legal exhaust forever and unlikely it is ever coming......
  13. Full system not approved by LTA, only the end-pipes. Are you considering a full system on your bike?
  14. just for looks actually i think it looks very good. i heard from few members in xmax club that it is grey area.. whether pass or not depends on the tester and also if u go viacom or sta so worried la. the more i do research the more i feel like doing but... stress. i saw this titanium setup looks really good but the clamp looks too big
  15. @snsd555 All you need to know about current case on Scooter Narcotics. Of course there are more in the social media site. If you are staying in the East try research AC Motor, Fuel Garage, Gusto.
  16. Scooter Narcotics are commonly spoken I guess. Heard a few times but have not drop by. So far a couple of times, I have been to J's Motor somewhere in the North (woodlands area)
  17. Grey area, i've heard of people passing LTA inspection with naked handlebar setups but also people failing. Do it at your own risk. A complete set can range anywhere from $180-$300+ depending on the material and the add-ons you want on the bar (drinks hook, etc). Carbon ones will be more expensive for sure. Why are you looking at a naked handlebar setup? For looks or for the practicality/usability?
  18. pictures of the exhaust systems: Akrapovic Leo Vince Stainless Steel Leo Vince Black Termignoni
  19. just sharing some research i have done as i am looking to upgrade the stock OEM exhaust on my XMAX 300. not sure if the same list applies to the XMAX 250 / 400, hope other bros here can advise also. if i miss out any exhaust that are approved please feel free to add them below. 1) Akrapovic - ~$1,200 with installation - Stainless Steel with Carbon End Cap 2) Leo Vince - ~$1,300-$1,400 with installation - Stainless Steel with Carbon End Cap - Black Edition with Carbon End Cap 3) Termignoni - ~$1,550 with installation - Full Carbon Fibre anyone else know of any other LTA approved exhaust for the Yamaha XMAX?
  20. i saw another bro posted his in carbon which looks awesome but carbon is quite brittle right? might be a little dangerous for use in a handlebar due to cracks on impact. if it is safe i will probably do this as i love carbon but safety is more important of course
  21. hii brothers.. am new here. just got myself a 2nd hand xmax. currently condition is totally stock but i am thinking of doing some mods to it. the one that i am very interested in first is the naked handlebar setup that i have seen on some xmax bikes. saw on facebook a few shops providing this service. would like to ask if this is lta legal? and how much will it cost to do a naked handlebar setup? also are there any pros and cons to this setup other than looking very sweet? i saw this pics on fb and i like that the colour can match to the bike
  22. Where do you do your 1) Minor servicing? i.e Oil change, belt change, interior cleand and lube, etc 2) Major servicing? i.e Valve clearance, timing belt change, etc
