    Better sent your bike for a checkup... My vara will heat up in a jam, abt half the temp meter and my fan will start to cool it down and maintain the temp. But mine did not die off like yours...

    As for trip, you can always join those planned here in the forum. If you are looking for vara brothers (big or small), go to this thread:

    hi smicerboy,

    Yes, there was a recall on 2002 model in europe..but im not too sure here..the fuel pump is a known problem in vara..but im not too sure whether if what u described is the symptom of a spoilt fuel pump..i had believed the bike would die off and would require a few minutes of 'rest' before the bike could start again if the fuel pump was spoilt..mabbe u cld get a second mech's opinion? do let us know if it's a fuel pump prob..

    Cheers

    smicerboy,

    I also riding the 1k vara. I changed my fuel pump a few months back, together with the battery and generator - which also seem to wear out quite fast on the vara. The bike runs much better after this, also my fuel last me longer - I can now make about 17km/l.

    I am not servicing my vara at Sanfu, kakit bukit. They know big bikes there and don't give you a bad attitude like some other shops, it may be slightly more expensive on some parts though - but they do a good job. Especially the skinny, chain-smoking guy is very good.

    Good luck to you!

    btw - mine is also the 2002 model...

    hi bagahera,
    did u change oem fuel pump or modified ones from mitsubishi? have consulted my mech on this b4..seems that oem fuel pump gives problems approx every 30k km..while the modified ones might cause increase in fuel consumption if some seals or parts in the engine is worn out as the modified ones are more powerful..

    17km/L is very good! i can only get 16km/L..and i use petronas already!!keke...esso ld be ard 14 to 15km/L...

    Hi Kenny,

    Eeeeh, when you ask me I also don't know what fuel pump I changed to, I would assume it is the OEM one (especially since my fuel consumption has gone down. Quite expensive though, just checked back and Sanfu charged me $140 for it. Will let you know if I start experiencing problems soon agian then, changed it after about 40k km, and have now past 50k km so I guess 30k will come soon.

    I am v happy with the fuel consumption at 17km/l, used to be around 14km/l before my servicing at 40k km. I am pumping Mobil (same as Esso lah). Is Petronas supposed to last longer? How does it treat your engine though?

    smicerboy,

    The fuelpump was $140, should be OEM. If your bike gives you problems in the future keep monitoring the battery and rectifier, sounds like inherent problem with vara.

    BTW, you heading over to the kruiserfest in M'sia on Saturday? Will probably be heading over, but will go myself.

    Kenny, you were heading over right? Do you know of any timing for food etc? Sure don't wanna head over and miss it...

    hi varas,

    I think you tipped me about this one last time when I had my problem also, but had changed the pump already when I saw your mail about the price at motoworld. But I guess if the fuel consumption goes up like he says, I make back the diff in a few months... Anyway, thats how I comfort myself...

    smicerboy, no problems - go with the motoworld one. I just have problems with motoworld as the mechs tend to ignore me - I guess communication problems since I don't speak mandarin.

    b good...

    its also Mitsubishi

    the original is also mitsubishi..hmmm and i heard tat its the same piece AT has ..hmmm hmmm

    I dun think i have a problem in the fuel mileage part, still the same for me thou..I swear by petronas . Really gives good mileage, I done 17+km/l for highway travelling in sgp. Ave speed is 110km/h
    As for town ride, its abt 15km/l
    The mechanics there in motor world is like that lah.. seems like they r paying us more like we pay them hehehehehe gotta get use to it.

    Guys we shd meet up or keep in contact often.
    Like that we could be inform of the best deals & we could get good price thru mass order


    my rear suspension is gone, guess its abt time.. (54k km on the odo liao )
    it's time to look out for new replacement
    so far the candidates r
    ohlins, techno-flex

    most prob its techno-flex. Ohlins is more like a branded stuff , thou it's good stuff too...
    but techno is custom made to rider's,pillion weight..etc.So its suspension made for rider. Ohlin is not...
    oh well its $$$ again

    Sure varas, sounds like a great idea to keep in touch!

    Just pumped petronas on sat night on the way back from the kruizerfest so will see how much mileage I can get out of it (even if this time I only managed to get in a bit more than half tank). Thanks for the tip guys, hope it will work better for me also...

    BTW, how do you feel that the suspension gone? Is it like totally no dampening effect over your rear wheel? How much will the replacement run? My bike is at about 52k now, so about the same as yours.

    its just like horse riding, bounacy ride....

    really freaky,also if u put the bike on its side stand, try to press it down, ideally the bike shd be allow to shift back once, nothing more..

    if its shifting up, down ,up ,down;even with the max setting.. .. tats it, bye bye suspension..

    maybe it's harder to describe in works but if there's a chance i would gladly show it to u pple ..

    anyway any1 wanna get crashbar??

    Yeah, will have some serious seafood session over there! Hopefully will be able to catch the Sat game on tv over there also. Otherwise looking forward to France vs England on Sun!

    Varas - I go around Balestier also now and then, my inlaws staying over there (Jln Ampas). My fav bah kut teh also over there at Mandalay Rd! Does the coffee shops over there have TV's? There is one coffee show by the stadium in Lavender (not sure of the name of the stadium) that has quite ok tv's - but no sound... How about some sports bar somewhere?

    I may be able to go over pitstop this Friday for a bit (not sure yet)... You going Kenny? How abt the rest of you - can you make it?

    yeah, I even went as far as to wax my tank before I placed the order, I thought I could pick the tank bra up off the shelf. Istead it turns out I have to wait 100 years...

    ok, feel a bit patient now as Kenny told me should have to wait another 40 days for the stock to come it. I guess it doesn't hurt to harass them now and then though. Keep me updated if you hear some news, Kenny - and I will do the same.

    BTW, Varas - I am kind of interested in crashbar. The one Kenny has (givi was it) looks quite slick. Any idea on the price?

    i think the stadium is jln besar stadium.
    that coffee shop got 1 stalll selling prawn mee rite? drool liao..


    anyway for those without crashbars , pls get 1 set soon.. i think it's the most impt piece of equipment to get over anything else man.This tank/varadero weights 220kg dry, so its damn heavy.. so pushing it around is a up-hill task. So dropping it(touch wood ) is quite high chance.And fairing is not cheap man... get what i mean..



    crashbars costs from $200-$400
    depending on wat brand u like, currently i tried H&B, its good stuff . Absorb my carelessness with no effort. After i changed to sw.motech, now still using it
    5 stars looks nice, so far no comments or feedback .. then the next is rikycross. Quite thick and sturdy looking, an abang said its good,he dId 'utilised' it .. lastly its givi. All this are brands u can find here.
    I got fren bringing in H&B, 5 stars.So i could refer u to him if u want to get it..

    I tot motorworld got tank cover readily???still got to wait so long??

    hahah..apparently, not ready enough...
    mine is sw motech i think..although i told bagahera it was a givi (apologies, slipped off my mind)..cuz there was a piece of instruction paper on the crashbar in between the owner's manual when i got the bike which says sw motech...
    i have also "utilised" it already..and i thot it was very good..

    tested and proven by 1 of my fren... whole thing poke into the fairing,then radiator..when he utilise it.

    if the paper states sw.motech, i guess it shd be..

    sounds like H&B or sw motech is it for the crashbar then. any idea where to get it or how's the pricing?

    varas, you had some contact is it? Got good price or not?

    Actually mine drop already, got a bit heartache on the left fairing and had to change the gear lever already - not a cheap affair... it breaks easily since it is die-cast aluminum, cannot take any bending. My H&B bags protect me at the back so there quite ok.

    smicer, don't know the address to the pitstop place already (never been before), kenny told me but forgot the street name. Just remember it's off North Bridge Rd, close to Bugis. Kenny - can you pls repeat the street?

    Ok Varas, I understand. Thanks for giving me the info, the place PM me already, checking the price with them direct. You are using the H&B one issit? Does it looks slick on the bike? Want something that protects but does not stick out too much.

    Woah, did u guys see how England lost it last night... incredible. They must feel like sh*t right now, especially Gerrard.

    Tonight it is time for big game - Sweden starting out the road to winning the tournament

    varas > maybe i will check out the sw motech model, as both you and Kenny is using it. I have seen his and like how it looks on the bike. If you are of the same opinion and also have 'tried it out' I think it sounds like the best option.

    a bit tired today man, should not get any better the last few weeks... gotta go home sleep early so can get up tonight again... best time of the year!!!
