    116th Time at Planet!
    06/10/2017
    11:00am
    Weather: Fair
    Mood: Worried

    So some strange reason, my rear wheel got squeaking some when moving, so went back to Planet to have it checked.

    Replaced the rear brake pads and serviced the brake calipers and topped up the brake fluid. (I had drained the fluid partially because I was worried that the brakes will seize)

    Will be monitoring the situation after this.

    117th Time at Planet!
    27/01/2018
    09:30am
    Weather: Sunny
    Mood:

    Went down to Planet to get my bike checked. There was still a bit of squeaking sound coming from the rear wheel, but now there was a continuous bump when I clutch in. The feeling was like as though I had a flat tyre or as though I was going over strips on the road.

    I got to Planet at 09.30am. There was already 3 bikes in the shop. Chia Lat come early also have to queue. So queue I did. I was reading a book entitled the “Book of 5 Rings” when around 10.00am a chap came to me to ask where I got my top and side boxes. Turns out he just got his bike and is looking to get it tuned to his requirements. So I recommended Regina and 219, since that was where I got my top boxes but for the side boxes I had to get them online over eBay.

    At around 10.30am, Ah Chong finally got time to have a look at my bike. I told him of the symtoms and told him I suspect that the bearings are worn. Ah Chong shook the tyre and confirmed that it was a bearing problem. When he removed the wheel and took out the bearings….. ….. There were missing ball bearings!!!!

    Since the wheel was already out, I asked if he got stock for new tyres. Might as well changed them since I haven’t changed them for quite a few years despite the threads being still there. But there was no stock so I changed the engine oil and asked if he can change the petrol cap too since I got water in my tank.

    Ah Chong got me a 2nd hand one and charge me only $10 for it. So total cost for change of bearings, a 2nd hand petrol cap and oil change = $45.00

    On the way back, I noticed something weird. When I signalled left, the signal light don’t come on but the headlight was blinking. I stopped the bike by the side of the road and soon an uncle riding a Phantom came besides me and asked “what’s wrong?” It was Ah Chong! He told me it’s probably a short circuit, so I did a U-turn back to Planet! When I reached Planet, I found my orange signal light cover gone! It must have dropped along the way back.  After a moment’s hesitation, I rode back along the route I took a minute ago and thank goodness! The cap was not yet run over by another vehicle. I did a shuttle run and grabbed it but it was missing it’s screw. So I asked Ah Chong if he has one. He handed me a screw driver. At first I thought he mistaken my meaning of screw, but then he pointed to a Phantom TA150 that he was going to scrape and asked me to DIY remove it from there.
    After screwing the cap back on, I tried trouble shooting and I got lucky. The first bunch of wire got a bare wire sticking out and when I touched it to a metal surface with the signal switch on, the head light flashed! So I taped the wire up and the signal was working again! Yay!

    So I told Ah Chong I got it fixed and rode home happily!

    First post.
    Hi all, would like to share my experience at Planet.
    First time visited Planet today

    Just bought a 2nd hand Honda Wave from other bikeshop, realised the engine oil leaking like crazy causing a pool of eo on the ground.
    Bikehop says no warranty.

    i was expecting to spend more than $100 for repair becos from what i read online, eo leakage usually due to wear n tear/damaged Gasket.

    Dropped by Planet to look for Ah Chong, he let his mech "Desmond" to service my bike. There were two area which leaked EO underneath my bike. Desmond damn power, the nut-thread where u let the oil out when changing EO was broken, but he told me he'll use a fabric to cover it before screwing it in, which helped me saves alot cos normal repair would need to take out the whole engine just for retreading the nut. And for the Gasket area leakage, he only change two O-ring instead of Gasket to stopped the leakage problem. Helped me save so much $$$. He even suggested me to reuse my old 4T cos i just change it at my place bikeshop before i made my long trip to Planet, in case my bike EO leaked until finished... n ohhh he even top up some left-over unused EO from the shop.

    All in all, i've changed Air Filter, Spark Plug, Back light, O-rings on engine $40.

    I'm actually abit worried if the O-rings changed is sufficient enough to stopped the leakage anot, but Ah Chong assured me that his mech all experience one haha. indeed, I've double, triple check my bike n can't see any leakage anymore. Power!

    Will definitely be a long term customer from now on!

    118th Time at Planet!
    28/05/2018
    12:05pm
    Weather: Wet
    Mood: Sian…

    Went to Planet to have my left signal light changed. The rubber in the socket had melted and I have been DIY Jerry Rigging the copper connectors to hold the light bulb. But the bulb keeps dropping off and DIE!!!! No left signal light.

    Also I have a pair of Stebel horns but when I connected them without the circuit, the only sound that came out was a soft croak like a bullfrog croaking. Must I connect them with a circuit?!?!?

    On the way to Planet, it started raining, and my raincoat was leaking and I had to take shelter under a HDB block at Hougang. …. and it continued to rain for hours….. Luckily there was a mama shop at the block I was in and I got a packet of prawn crackers and read the book (Tales from Earthsea) while waiting. My Planet… …. So near yet so far….

    Anyway when I got to Planet, there was just a couple of people there, so Ah Chong asked me what I wanted. I told him my signal light assembly need to change and I want to get a small horn to pass annual inspection. Ah Chong sold me a medium size round horn that connects straight to the wires for the default bike horn and it was loud!

    As for the signal light, Ah Chong gave me one second hand one from a bike he scraped, on the condition that I DIY it on myself. Being the stingy fellow that I am, I jumped at the chance and readily agreed. But when I opened it, it was empty! Then Ah Chong told me to take one from the hooks on the wall. But then hor…. That one also empty! Hahahaha!!!

    So Ah Chong told me to go upstairs to take one myself. Armed with my new orange handled screwdriver and a pair of wire cutters I boldly walked up the stairs to the top of Planets’ workshop to get one. When I was upstairs, there was half a dozen ½ Phantoms up there with just the forks, headlights, handles and mirrors. I unscrewed the first one and found that the rubber inside the signal light assembly was also melted, so I put it back and opened the next one, luckily this one was in good condition and with my wire cutters I snipped off the wired and unscrewed the screw holding it to the forks and took it downstairs.

    After I fixed it on, to my surprise, the back light now doesn’t light up and I told Ah Chong about it. Ah Chong waddled over wearing his flip flop slippers and gave the rear signal light a couple of hard knock with his spanner and the lights started blinking! He told me that it is just loose.
    When I was about to go off I remembered that my fuel tank was leaking rain water in so I told Ah Chong about it. He gave a puzzled look and went to have a look at the fuel cap the after feeling around the tanks’ opening, he concluded that the tank cap nothing wrong. It was the tank that is warped and causing the leak. Die….. Ah Chong gave me a contact to a machinist to see if he can cut out the hole and weld a new opening he even offer me an old Phantom fuel tank to cut and paste. I love this blessed old man.

    Anyway I paid Ah Chong the $18 for the horn and free signal light. Although I got my hands a little bit dirty DIY-ing, but hey who am I to complain about a free signal light.

    PS: The machinist advised me to use a rubber gasket over the opening to seal up any opening. No need to waste money welding a new tank opening to the old tank.

    What service/product did you purchase? : front brake pump or something spoilt, went to 3 bike shops and yamaha agent, all could not find any problem! but ah chong press my front brake lever he know already!


    Level of service: 10
    Level of knowledge: 9
    Level of value for money: 10
    How happy are you overall: 20!

    What makes this shop commendable?

    ok my front brake had some problems when i got the bike... went to the shop i got it from, they ask me to raise my handlebar because the angle of the wire cannot pump brake fluid! stock dragstar handle cannot pump brake fluid properly la very good... ok nvm... went to 2 other shops all said it's normal.. then nvm, went to agent for a full service + grease shaft.. agent said it's normal as well and that got no problem..

    so i made the trip down to planet one fine day and asked ah chong(boss) what was wrong? he said.. bleed the brake can already.. if cannot u come back have to check the pump. so i said ok la..

    he changed the brake fluid and there was actually water in the reservoir(dunno how it got there!)

    after changing the fluid, the problem was still there but very very very slight.. but im a sucker for perfection la so i went back there 2 days later and told him still got problem then he said muz change the rubber or something la i forgot.. around $30+... BUT he had to order it so asked me to come tmr.. and i asked him where is a goot place to make a rear number plate... so he recommended the shop at the corner.. and i got my number plate made... silver wording on black acrylic back then i thought i wanted to ask ah chong to fix la coz scared later i damage the plate ah heart pain..

    so i went back the next day (i live at jurong BTW) got the thing fixed, and he showed me that it was leaking and there was brake fluid all inside my lever the compartment there.. the mech cleaned it up and changed the rubber thingy..

    and i asked to fix my rear plate also la.. drilled 2 holes and all.. so i went to pay... then this is what ah chong said... "u punya $38 campur lobang ah.. $4 satu lobang, $2 dua lobang.. betol???" (translation = yours ah $38 plus holes ah, $4 one hole, $2 two holes, correct???") i was like HUH.. damn blur for awhile then i started laughing already..

    very very reliable shop!
