    For the rest, with majorly highway route, their km/l would be ard 19-20 depending on the right hand too.. I do get ard 19km/l to 20km/l too during my reservist to and fro PIE.

    Hope this helps in ur decision Of course if u want power, then fz 1 would be a better choice though..

    Thanks bro, 800cc will be as far I will consider. So I guess a bit of highway added, 16 should be very safe. FZ1 defn out for me as I'm on the island 100%. And based on my 929 exp, its way too overkill, engine too heaty leading to discomfort. And made worse that I cant enjoy wailing for 1st 4 gears legally like my Version S. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Bro, in that case think u are the perfect comrade to ask.

    May I check , whats the respective speed for each gear 1,2,3,4,5,6 based on 5k rpm? Many thanks.
    Erm sory bro. i cant exactly remember the speed on each gear but roughly for me gear 4 to 5 cn easily hit 100km/h... a bit scared to rev hard my new bike la. Also i will increase to gear 6 to increase my speed smoothly... i stayed at 5k rpm max i go is 120km/h.

    Thanks bro. That means the range is similar to my prev 929 at low to mid rpm. Thanks again.

    Do refer to ur manual. From the online manual:

    a) 0-1000km, Do not operate at > 5800rpm for prolong period. After that, change oil filter.

    b) 1000-1600km, Do not operate at > 6900rpm for prolong period.

    c) >1600km, the bike can now be operated normally.

    Note that for a) & b), it says "prolong" and not "do not". However, there is no clarity on what they mean by "prolong".

    A) should be 0-1000km max 5800rpm. 1000km change oil filter and engine oil.
    B) should be 1000-1700km max 6900rpm.
    C) 1700km onwards up to you already lol...btw the prolong mean u cannot hold the max rpm at the said running in period more than 2-3 sec. To make it simple just go below the max rpm recommended during running in

    I wanted to get this bike when i passed my class 2. But end up getting other bike bec heong leong customer service was bad and they dont have the colour I wanted which was in their catalog. When to the show room. 2times no 1 around. ask the lady in office she has no idea if the colour is available. called the boss he say he will be around next week when shop opened. Went there the next week no 1 around, called him he said he will come in 1hr, and didnt appear in 1 hr and I basically never come back.

    Didnt went to other bike shop as the colour I wanted was not available. And few months later I see it available everywhere.

    Biketech21.. its sw motech mainstand though..

    my opinion on it is that it doesnt lift the rear wheel as high as the original yamaha's mainstand.. also do take note if u have aftermarket pipe, the mainstand would smack against your rear suspension link when u push ur bike down from mainstand.. so use some creativity to put some form of cushioning.. for me i just tape a rubber dinning chair bottom onto the mainstand.. cheers

    Ah thks for tat...spent hours online looking for one and the cheapest i've come across is approx. $312 from motosport webby, yamaha original one with shipping...

    i'll expect sw motech to be more expensive

    I did went to 2 bikeshop earlier (late sat) and ask about it and unsurely they quote me $200plus need to order but couldnt call and check to confirm cause its late (5pm plus) and the agent has already closed for the day so finger crossed they got the pricing right..

    Will call on monday and ask again

    Anyway the mainstand smacking rear suspension link ur referring to is the sw motech or yamha orignal one?

    Hey guys

    Intending to get a FZ8s
    Just wondering, are spare parts hard to get considering that it is no longer in production?
    How about it’s reliability so far from you guys who have been riding it awhile, any common problems that this bike gives?

    Thanks for the inputs!
