    Mine is still running ok currently at 26000km, though It might be time to change cos my cruising rpm just went up by 1-2K.

    Have this prob once on my old YP250 while riding: engine suddenly cuts off, all lights gone and then miraculously regain power. frequency increases to the point of unbearable, sent to my mech, solved in 15 secs...ends up its the battery connector bolt loose...maybe u should tighten the bolt and see how.

    Juz changed my belt n rollers today.... Wah din know so ex.....

    Anyway, wonder if you guys got such an issue. Frequently, when either moving off or when I'm accelerating gradually from a very slow speed(i.e 10+km/h), I can hear a *took* sound which seems to come from the back of the bike on my left side. The sound resembles the knocking of an empty bottle on a hard object. The sound comes at around 3.5k rpm to 4k.

    The belt n rollers cost me $240 inclusive of labour. Originals were used. Dunno how heavy but the rollers were the same colour as the one that were inside. They were pale yellow in colour.

    Used Dunlop, Michelin & Bridgestone tyres for my B650. So far, no issues with me on this and I do cover quite a bit of tarmac to be able to use all the above 3 brands within the time I had my B650. And as long as this 3 brands are available locally, I'll happily get them for my own use.

    So far, Dunlop are the cheapest. Abt $120 front & $168 rear - whether you can get this price will depend on your contacts and relationship with the shops.

    Michelin front and rear I managed to get for $320 incl of balancing & labour for replacement. Again same caveat as above.

    Bridgestone - don't ask me for the price cos I also dunno. Last I heard was around the range of Michelin.

    Anyway, mine is an old beat up Burgman 650 that has covered 92000km at last count. Happy with the current available tyres so no point hankering for something else.

    well said bro.....
    nice inputs here. believe many will benefit from this infos.
    as for myself, had rode my Burgman AN650 K6 for 13 months. in a year, i manage to clock 65 000km. dun think there's anyone able to beat me. haha...
    from stock, the bike came with the tires, Bridgestone TH01. this tires were very good on wets, i could even cross the white lines in wets. but quite ex. cost for front is abt $140 & rear is abt $190. all this without installations. aso tried the Michelin Pilot Sports. its good for flipping into corners. but wear fast & bad on wet roads.
    i also believe its better to use tires that are available locally. i also thought of ordering Maxxis tires in before. but when 1 of them wear how? use 2 different brands for the front & rear? on dry roads, no prob. but wat if on the wets, the grovves designed to cut the water would be different. might cause accidents to happen.

    for 250 burgy, 7k rpm should be 100km/h. usually scooter cruise speed is just before your engine start to hoarse. For hoarse, it mean you gradually throttle till you hear your engine change to a rougher sound. Just anything before can consider as cruise.

    Up to your personal preference. But think about this, are you gonna get just one set? i.e. 1 front and 1 rear. Cos the the rear wear out twice as fast as the front. So when the time comes are you able to get the same brand of tyre cos the stability of the tyre will be affected if both are of different brand - especially in the wet. Even if you get 1 front and 2 rear, if your front got a puncture that cannot be patch up or warp out of shape or uneven wear. How?

    My preference is for something that's readily available and I'll ordered from the shop at least 2/3 months before due for change.(unless puncture)

    Your choice...

    That'll be me. Food is nice as usual. Brought a few fellas from the silverwing thread there. You drove? Cos I don't see other bikes there but quite a few SG cars.

Even if you get 1 front and 2 rear, if your front got a puncture that cannot be patch up or warp out of shape or uneven wear. How?

    My preference is for something that's readily available and I'll ordered from the shop at least 2/3 months before due for change.(unless puncture)

    Your choice...
    Tks for your enlightment. Might wan to get the rear one soon as it wear right side already... U still able to get the rear one for $168? Tks...

    The last dunlop rear I used was about 6 months ago. So price wise I'm not sure what's current. Basically, if a shop charges you $200 plus installation and balancing, I think that's fair.

    Compare to 4/5 years back, the gravel road definitely improve alot. But many SG riders don't encounter this kind of terrain before.

    Wow bro, I jilat liao, my front is bridgestone and rear is dunlop, I tot it was ok to install 2 different brand. (I only know that for 4-wheelers, the right and left tryes must be the same brand, but it is ok to have the front 2 wheels and the rear 2 wheels of different brand, so I tot 2-wheeler also the same).
    People ask me, "Why ride bike?" I ask them back :"Why drive car?"

    I was in the same boat as you are now, front bridgestone back dunlop. Nothing happen to my scooter, ride the same as before changing. Maybe I dont corner fast enough. On straight road I dont feel any different.

    Now both tires same brand, bridgestone. Handling still the same or is that just me?

    Yay! Got my Burg-y fixed, turned out it was a short-circuited Throttle Position Sensor that caused the problem!

    at the distributor, the rear cost abt $195 w GST. as your rear is quite troublesome to change, this price is actually quite ok ba. but got short cut to open your rear. provided he knows how to do it.

    Ard $150 for the sensor.... think it's quite reasonable bah! But most importantly finally found the cause of the problem.... no more mystery!

    Hmm, when you compare the 400cc scooters (Honda Silverwing, Yamaha Majesty, Suzuki Burgman) I think the servicing and parts costs are quite comparable.
