    Me back from Thailand Bangkok on 02-01-2008, woo~hoo~ still surviving~

    Travelled north & back takes more than 4000km. The MT-01 never give me any major problem~ only the rear number-plate broke off, may be the vibration is just too much~ and now my Mt is freaking dirty~

    saw a MT-01 from Thailand, surprise to me. Friendly people all over Thailand

    Hi Fai,

    regarding your trip to Thai, did the small fuel tank give any complications on refuelling?

    Able to give at least 200km before reserve on highway riding?

    Thanks.

    Hi GiantValk,

    The small fuel tank didn't bother me much~ but may make your biker friends stop more due to the need of more refuel interval.

    Full tank I can travel up to 240km before refuelling, yet in Thailand, some kiosk may be out of 95 or close shop, so try to pump whenever you find petrol kiosk when MT hits 150km above.

    Other than that, the MT-01 never give any major problem at all, Travel to Bangkok & back 4,000+km still running strong.

    Installed the GPR exhaust for my MT-01

    Sounds good (& funny). I am happy with the product

    Default GPR exhaust

    Hi Fai,

    How's the heat at the pillion seat after mounting your GPR exhausts? Bearable?

    There used to be one MT-01 which I always see at Punggol 21. Wonder who it belongs to, or used to belong to.

    Thanks for the reply on the Thai trip. I am considering either a CB1300, XJR1300 or an MT. Ever went to Hong Leong when it was just released, and got the sales guy to fire it up for me. Great bass from the stock pipes.

    Not quite worried with the availability of 95ron in Thai since compression for this engine is really low. Many Road Star Warrior riders in U.S. routinely feed their bikes 92ron or lower.

    Keep in touch!

    The heat from the exhaust is bearable, but the pipe sounds funny to me thought

    Its got a funny name too: poppy pipes

    But overall I am happy with it~ more bassy & poppy sound when open throttle & close throttle.

    How abut B-King~? Sure a powerful street fighter & eye-catcher

    MT-01 is an air cool V-twin compare to CB or XJR in-line 4, so you may find the MT has more vibration.

    Default B King

    Nah, might as well the Busa rather than the B King. Frankly speaking, I feel that the BK's mufflers are a bit too much.

    Good mufflers should look somewhat like the Kawa 08 Z1000, or the soon-to-be 1800 V Max. But nothing beats an old school 4-2-2 exhaust, like the old CB series.

    The CB13 is water cooled though, only the XJR13 and GSX14 are still oil cooled.

    I really think you should make a short clip with your MT-01's engine running, upload on youtube and then hyperlink here. Then we will really know how "funny" the GPRs are.

    Cheers.

    Yeah~ the exhaust of the BK -- some people like it, some don't...

    I still find it ok through magazine only, never had close encounter with one thought, wonder waiting at traffic light side by side for the light to turn green, would be an eye-catcher to others & pressure to me, haha~

    Is the new CB13 having only a single exhaust~? I once remember seeing it @ Looi's motor, looks big.

    I am not good at doing video thingy~

    Bro Ah Fai,

    I am considering a second hand MT-01 that is on the mkt now.

    And I do have some Q for u. How u can answer them for me.

    Any idea what is the OTR costfor MT-01 without insurance? Different people seems to quote diff price.

    U mentioned u rode to bkk, did u pack stuff with u? and if u did how did u attached it to your bike?

    From all the posting, it seems this bike is not well sorted out, especially the ealry model. Should I still go for the secondhand unit or should I go for somethign else?

    As for the vibration, is it as bad as HD?

    TQ

    Hi dospalmas,

    Cool that you consider MT-01 to be your next ride

    for 2nd-hand model you most probably will be getting 2005 model around S$16,000

    But if you consider a brand new, below is a rough gauge

    New MT-01 (general price)
    Machine Price: S$20,840.00
    Road Tax: S$361 (6 months)
    IU: S$160
    COE: current COE rate - S$951
    plus register fees... may be around S$150

    rough OTR without insurance: S$22,462 +/-

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    About my trip to Bangkok, yes I did pack some stuff

    Just a small bag on the pillion seat, I didn't take much things as I can buy things over Bangkok


    Beware, I use bungy-rope to hold the bag in space, but may scratch the side exhaust cover, so I use some tissue for protection


    Then realise that some part of my bag is being cook by the MT exhaust, so if you wanna tie some baggage beside, take note things don't get too near the rear exhaust


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    IMO, this bike I consider is rare, consider from MT-brothers stating that there are only 12 models running in Singapore.. If you want heavy road presence or unqiue sound system, this bike is for you.

    Yet I guess if you want smooth riding naked bike & able to have some speed-fun in NSHW, there are more better choice, Yamaha FZ1 & Kawasaki Z1000 are popular choices..

    The feeling of sitting on MT-01 is like sitting on OSIM chair, but is not as shaky as the Harley. Both are ok to me.

    Hope this will help

    16 MT's in Sing !
    I think we have more in Scotland (population about the same)
    I've just come back down to work here and my poor MT is here
    http://www.v-twinservices.co.uk/project5/index.html
    if you want to see what the inside of the engine looks like, follow the link.

    It's my second MT, sold the first one at 16k kms to get the new one, I have not even sat on the new one and it's in bits already.

    Currently bikeless in Sing but looking at a K12RS as a possible ride while I'm on the island.

    Oh, Hiya !

    Lovely place you live in, pleasure to be here.

    But if you consider a brand new, below is a rough gauge

    New MT-01 (general price)
    Machine Price: S$20,840.00
    Road Tax: S$361 (6 months)
    IU: S$160
    COE: current COE rate - S$951
    plus register fees... may be around S$150

    rough OTR without insurance: S$22,462 +/-

    Seriously thinking the MT01 to be my next bike also. Hopefully when the time comes I can get a 2nd hand one from one of your guys, haha.

    In 2 years time when I have a few miles under it
    If you collect it (It's in Scotland)
    It really is one of the few bikes you can scratch like a sports bike, cruise like a harley and pose like nothing else on.
    It feels nice going fast on the twisties 150-190kph at home, and cool pottering round town.
    it is comfortable, has good handling, phenomenal brakes and drop dead looks.
    Would like another 3L in the tank but that's the only grump I have.

    (Do I get to be on Singapore Bikes fora muttering about my MT when it isn't here ? )

    splurged today (and this is the wrong forum) bought a K1200R for June delivery.
    I'll be hanging about with MT riders in SG on a Beemer and hanging about Beemer riders in Scotland on an MT . . .

    ah well, roll on June

    do peeps meet up and hang around here? or is it less formal than that?

    Your bike is in Scotland??????
    If you bear the shipping fee from there to Singapore, I don't mind wait for 2 years.

    Juz saw this review:

    http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/bi...nt/?&R=EPI-255

    According to this review, this bike does NOT hold value, well at least in UK market............

    I quote:"One Year-old, 1100-milers can already be had for less than £5500." Which the new bike is £9349......

    See the users' review at the bottom of the page even one owner himself say better buy a second hand because the new bike do not hold the value......

    Yes, indeed.

    One question: is it true that for later versions of the MT-01 came complete with a Akrapovic exhaust system?

    For western country I guess~ so far I know in Singapore we still run on the stock~

    But I may be wrong, for best answer you may wish to e-mail to Yamaha Hong Leong~

    Anyway I just replaced my GPR exhuast back to original exhaust~

    main reason for replacement because it doesn't looks too good with the existing original exhaust cover, and also occasionally "pinging" sound from the engine when throttle hard~

    I guess its due to the aftermarket exhaust result in more air in fuel-air mixture, causing the mixture to be more lean, which result in overall engine temperature to rise, once its rise in temperature, mixture did not wait for spark plug to ignite already explode under hot temperature, causing "ping-ping" sound.

    Just mild guessing, but changed back to original exhuast, can feel the overall "pinging" sound is greatly decrease.
