    I think my steed's leaking oil. Problem is, I don't knwo where from.

    The ground right in front of the rear wheel is oily. No oil right under the engine. Strange!

    Are there any oil lines that run near the rear wheel?
    Check your engine oil drain nut, could be loose.
    Happen to mine, no more drip stain after tightening it.

    Maybe you can try HKL at Alexander Industrial. Part cost and labor are very reasonable.
    My two cents worth, if anyone is interested.....

    HKL is usually cheaper, but check what brand and type they giving first.
    Their service speed is also very impressive, I might say one of the fastest I have seen.

    But its a bit too fast for my comfort.

    Anyway take a good look at how the mechanics do their job first before patronising ANY shop.

    I'm not saying they are no good, I just personally dont feel comfortable.

    Yeah I agree. Friendliest mechanics I've encountered. And they come up to you the moment you step into the place. Unlikeo ther palces where the mechs usually boh hiew you.

    bro, why u posting same thing on 2 different thread?

    Superfour should be brighter, even if both use same bulb.
    S4 headlamp has a bigger and better reflector.

    To all the bros here, I'm reluctantly selling my Springer. So if anyone seriously considering this bike please let me know. It is under utilized in my stable standing next to my class 2 power cruiser. Last year alone I put less than 5K km on it. Condition of bike is excellent, always parked under cover and hardly exposed to rain. All tear'n'wear changed when due. Used mostly for relaxed weekend rides. Following are some details:
    Mileage: 56K and slowly growing
    Ownership: I'm 2nd owner
    Road tax: end Oct 2006
    Color: dark cherry
    Reg year: april 1999
    Extras: Küryakyn grips with throttle boss, customized seat cover, solid rear wheel cover, chrome foot pegs, etc.

    Viewing can be arranged, price is neg though don't expect it to be cheap. Insurance and roadtax combined is only 200+ so if no serious buyer I'll just keep it for few more years.
    nice, well mantained bike man! hmmm if the potential buyer does not want the throttle boss, i would love to have it...
    It's your damn bike, wash it yourself! You rinse your own mouth after you eat, don't you?

    What i normally do

    1. There shoudn t be any harm topping up the coolant fully and as u said it matters only till the water overflows and flows out to the rubber hose.

    Do u top up the reserve coolant itself as these two tanks are of different issues.

    2.When its overflows it s full and remeber once i took out and clean up the plastic tank and is much more easiler identify the water level.

    For my model there is a main and a reserve tank.

    The main one is just behind the front wheel and the reserve ones are just below your seat or rather the battery but for the topping up of the reserve tank the openings are rather small but is still accessable.


    Correct me if i m wrong

    I suppose yours comes with a main and a sub..


    Regards

    Jeremy

    Yes indeed below the sit is the reserve tank which holds a transparent container as said.

    The one below the handler bar is the main ones and there is also a opening for the toping up for the reserve tank itself .


    If i didn t remember wrongly it can be found just on your right and beside the side cover wich is not really easily noticed..

    Good Idea!
    I would like to meetup with everyone else too.
    But I would think that with Christmas and new year coming, everyone will not be free.

    So lets wait till 2006.

    What do the rest of the guys think?

    Hi Cruzz77


    Just had a checklist of your bike, like EO change, spake pluges etc etc done before 2 wks of the ride. During this period bike OK, FEAR shd not be a problem. Just GO.
    I hv done a trip alone (pillion my gal) to Kuantan down to Lanjut, across to Mount Ophir and west to Malacca and head south to Sing. Before the trip l hv all "Fear" if that happen????. I never hv done this trip. Just GO!!!!

    My 10cents advice

    Hi guys...hoping that ya'll can help me out on this. Im riding an "FL-Plate" VLX and i love my Steed so much however there's a lot of things/problems that i encountered.

    1) My steed is not able to reach 140km/h, not even close to that and i wonder why? I've tried to change the EO, serviced the carb, changed the chain & sprocket but the performance still dissapoints me. Is there anything i can do to increase the power?

    2) My handle also vibrates terribly upon reaching 100km/h...and my hands got so numb that i can barely feel anything due to the vibration. What do you guys think is the problem? Is it advisable to send my bike for a major overhaul? Im just afraid it will cost me a bomb and worst still, wont change anything...

    3) I've also ever tried to arrange the wires and cables on the bike nicely as i thought it look so messy however after dismantling the parts, i noticed the wirings is so old and some worn out. I thought of sending the bike to the w/shop to do it up all over again with new wires/cables so as to look much neater. Is it worth it? Any idea how much it'll cost?

    4) Lastly, my steed gets soo burning HOT very fast. I can just start my bike, and the temp will shoot up in minutes or after travelling for a short distance. Is that normal?

    Does anyone experience the same on their VLX? Oh...someone please help me....
