    comics,

    i might take a look again at the bike. actually, the dent and marks are not very obvious or big. so, i'm not sure if it's caused by accident or just a topple on the side and hit a curb. the salesman was busy entertaining others looking at the BMWs so i didn't get a chance to speak to him about the bike. 12K sounds like a good investment to me on a FV plate. I saw someone posting a 2002 bike with 23K mileage selling at 14.2K. I think it's overpriced.

    could you teach me what else must i check before buying a tdm? any ideas guys?

    i hit top speed around 195 during my trip to Koh Samui. that was with three full box and other barang barang strap to my bike.
    and there still room for the rpm needle to move but bike start to oscillate/wobble. Once started, will get worse and worse. have to really slow down to cure the oscillation. even to below the speed where the oscillation start

    no problem ^200km/h. when ride up NS highway i often open up ^ 200km/h when there is clear road ahead. infact i find it very stable even when going around bends. but taking into cosideration my bike got no boxes or what ever that may affect the air flow around the bike
    May be with a higher wind screen will help if going NS high way...didn't see any TDM900 with higher wind screen humm... don't know if givi got any of such screen???

    hi casio,
    i have seen the tdm 2 weeks ago at dili..the dents are not too obvious ..but the ugly looking sideboxes look like they've been thru some hell... i thought the mileage was something like 24k...
    anyway, i would have gotten it if i had the money...

    cheers..

    Hi Kenny,

    When i saw the bike, the sideboxes was not attached with the bike. So i'm not sure how bad it were. But based on what you have said, it really sounded bad. Anyhow, i'm not too keen on a yellow coloured bike. Would go for darker colour if there's one available. Still i'm not just considering this bike.

    There's a few others selling off their TDM as well. Good luck in your search if you are looking for one.

    Cheers

    can anyone advise me what is the best option for top box and side pannier? i mean the model, brand etc. am thinking of getting either one but not sure which is better. will it look weird to have a top box? i know side panniers will not because there's panniers from yamaha as accessories. but original panniers cost a bomb.

    thanks

    comics,

    no problem. thanks. btw, i've decided not to view the bike selling at Dili. in fact i'm buying it from a private owner. hopefully can meet up with you and all the other tdm riders in very very near future. just need to settle some papers.

    where do all the tdm riders hang out?

    regards

    Hello tdm riders,

    Just wondering is it easy to get the 18" front tyre becos not a popular size? Any recommendations of other brands rather than using back the originals?

    Thks.

    Should have no problem getting a size 18 tyre.

    No in depth knowledge on tyre but personally feel that the original tyre, metzeler Z4 (for mine) is good. Quiet and good grip in the wet.
    Wanted to changed to Metzeler Z6 but due to &#036;&#036;&#036;, settled for BT020. <-- cheaper

    BT020 feel abit rough during travelling and generate abit more noise compare to Z4.

    Anyway, try to buy the best tyre (or any other thing) you can afford when Safety is concerned <-- kind of conflicting statement when i mention that i went for the cheaper tyre

    Thanks. I have heard that BT020 (Bridgestone right?) quite good. Well anyway good to know that there are choices of 18&#39; tyres around.

    Well, i am now waiting for the COE bid before i can get my TDM. Hope it wouldn&#39;t shoot above &#036;1000

    Thks.
    The Met Z4 that comes with it feels great but a little high in &#036;&#036;&#036;. i settle for the BT 020 &#39;cos cheaper apogez is rite abt the noise but other than that i m quite happy with it after riding ~3k on it. next change will wish to try the Met Z6 if got spare &#036;&#036;&#036;

    on your new bike, TDM&#33; Btw TDM riders have no really hang out place yet &#39;cos its a small community & every1 is busy with work. TDM gathers only once in a while when some1 in the group initiate a meet up.

    Btw going up north on 1st may with 2 other TDM riders for a 2 day trip. waiting for others to reply, hope more will join.

    Oh yeah..

    if you guys are interested to know if you have any summon or if you are caught on camera for speeding in malaysia, you can check from this website.

    www.rilek.com.my

    you have to register for a username though. after login in, go to polis diraja malaysia (PDRM) and check for summon.

    if you have summon, you can choose to pay at TP JB or at Malaysia Embassy (pay in SIN dollars and only available till Jun 04)

    hope this helps

    what was the rpm when you were at 200km/h? i took my bike into malaysia yesterday and i tried up to 160km/h. my rpm was at 5.5 - 6 i think. red line is at 8.

    normal? i&#39;m not sure how fast more i can go since the red line is at 8.

    thanks

    thanks. i know that this bike is not meant for speed demon. however it would be nice to find out what is the top speed of your own bike. need not travel at top speed but would be a nice feeling to know your own bike&#39;s capabilities. but one think of sure, the torque on this bike is scary&#33;

    it&#39;s a HUGE twin&#33; so smooth too... very good in fuel consumption. i would have opted for black bird if speed was on the agenda. but no la.. 160km/h also i chicken already...

    that&#39;s so me

    haha... time to get a touring windshield then... I think stock yammies come with too small a windshield... probably a nice place to start would be givi or rifle... if you interested in rifle, let me know... I also wanna try... haha...

    confirm can customise... think they will tell you to leave your bike there for a few hours so that that can custom it for you if they do not have a mould for it... gonna be expensive though...

    cosmic

    i have joined the yahoo group. haven&#39;t been active though. still new. hahaha.. i did enquire ard for the top case. was quite impress with givi maxia 52. are you using one? the box is quite huge so i&#39;m afraid it may cause the handle to wobble. anyone has experience? i also asked hong leong on the side boxes. the cost is 1500&#33;&#33;&#33; wah.. kinda ex la. although it would look nice because it&#39;s original parts so no modification. need boxes urgently. can&#39;t stand taking my helmet everywhere.

    what do you use? any meet up soon for tdm?

    hi cas,
    regarding the givi maxia, i used it during my trip to phuket last year and i would say the handling wasn&#39;t affected much if you cruise at 140-160kmh but might feel a bit light on the handle if you try to push your bike all the way to the redzone. currently my maxia box together with the monokey rack have retired to my store room cos i had got myself a set of hepco and becker panniers and top box. would say maxia is a good buy for its storage capacity.
    as for the windshield, i was recommended Eagle screen from australia in the carpe-tdm forum and i got it online. their service is nice and swift and i got my shield custom made to the height i wanted. good finishing on the wing shield. maybe u can visit the website and drop them a mail.

    cheers

    thanks kev

    by the way, how much did you pay for the set of top box and side panniers from H&B? do you know which model so that i can search on the net? i thought of getting the maxia myself. but not in the hurry. want to see what&#39;s the best option. when you had the maxia, did you had a bracket or just the base plate screwed onto the grab bar?

    cheers
