  1. Dear SingaporeBikes.com members, As you would have noticed, SingaporeBikes.com is looking very different to what it has looked like in the past. We have gone through a major revamp of the website and is now in the soft launch phase of the new and updated look. This update is not solely cosmetic, and a lot of work has gone into improving the site's functionality, reduction of spam and bots, and a better overall user experience for our members. As the largest forum relating to bikes and motorcyclists in Asia, we thought that it would be apt that a new lease of life be injected int

  5. @Mipanzuzuzu What was the latest offence? No display of P-Plate? 1st time is warning, 2nd time is revoke. If your first offence was "Improper Display of P-Plate" and the 2nd offence was "Non-Display of P-Plate", hopefully they won't look at the offences together. Be careful and be sure to display your P-Plate during the 1st year! Not worth losing license over such a simple thing! Difficult journey to get your license! P.S. I also kena once for failure to display P-Plate many many many years ago. Immediate went to put up the plate cause don't wanna lose license. LOL!

  6. Personally, I think you must love the bike you're going to buy. whether its from a personal seller or a shop. If it does not make your heart pitter patter a little... Then walk away from it. Whether you're buying from personal seller or shop you have to prepare 1-2k spare cash just to cater for the servicing and minor repairs. Alot of dealers do minimal maintenance on their "trade in" bikes... so don't expect those to be in tip top condition. You need to check and make sure. There are some more decent dealership who would be more honorable and sometimes it comes down to your own personal

  7. Sharing some pictures from my past travels to Penang, based on memory, I rode approximately 700kms in a single day, leaving home at about 4.30am before arriving in Georgetown, because the fuel tank on my bike is just 6.9L, I recalled having to re-fuel about 9 times during the entire journey. Finally when I saw the Penang bridge, it was about 5.30pm in the evening! Totally missing Malaysia, the NSHW and all the nature it has to offer now.

  9. Brakes Often or not, when it comes it modification, a lot people neglected the brakes. In this post, I'll elaborate a bit on how to improve your brakes on Tmax. Stainless steel brakehoses One of the easiest upgrade to have a better feel. Most Japanese bikes still comes with rubber hoses from factory to keep the manufacture costs down. These hoses based on manual are to replace every 4 years. I personally replaced them at 3 years' mark, I take it as an upgrade together with replacement. There's no meaning to replace them back to factory rubber hoses. being said that many Tmax out

  12. From most expensive mods onwards 1) port block 2) carb jet setting 3) Remove air filters (usually already remove unless your previous owner wan to keep stock) - after remove air filter, will need to do some minor settings on the carb as well. (Bear in mind, after removal of air filter, your carb will need to clean more frequently.. as frequent as 3 months once to 6 months once.. after 6 months FC will drop.. very easy to clean but need to be careful on the screws to open the carb as they are quite "filmy" and can become rounded if your tools are normal home tools.. 4) Empty

  18. After riding for some 6 years, and passing my class 3 some time ago, I managed to get some considerable hours on the road as a driver doing parcel delivery as a side job. That's when I realized, it's actually not that hard to let motorcyclists pass or accommodate them when lane splitting .etc. In other words, I realized that drivers are even more of a prick for doing shit like cutting you off or signaling and turning immediately, and being accommodating to motorcyclists such as letting move ahead is not as troublesome or inconvenient as I thought (before I got the class 3). I also realized tha

  21. Our mind is the will to do almost everything you or anyone thought is not doable if you want to. Once you ride out our border you are on you own, be prepared with the unexpected. Would be good if you get to know your bike well with the common periodic problem and keep maintenance interval up to date. In the event of breakdown you could be able to rectify it yourself. Travel light as much as possible, bring along only the needs, the rest can get disposable during your journey. Fully prepared or not you will need to travel with a positive mind. Good luck...

  22. As a former LTA traffic marshal, I always see that accident victims are very venerable and can't think straight. Touters, insurance agents, passer-byes, scammers, and even the other party who is at fault will take advantage of the situation. Sometimes, during an RTA, I would try to help, but the victims have made their own decisions instead. -Remain calm. -If in minor RTA and you are pretty fine and no one is seriously injured, do not talk to anyone else, even the other party unless is to exchange particulars -Insist the other party to exchange particulars (If refuse to exchange, take

  23. Introduction Currently Tmax is in his 7th generation with 560 coming into the market early 2020. Tmax is one of the most popular since its debut in 2000. Through out the years, Tmax had seen various upgrades from engine capacity, drive train, transmission and outlook. Tmax remains till date, one of the most popular maxi scooter in the market. Tmax is amazing in handling in its class due to its shorter wheelbase compared to the rest of the maxi scooters. However, earlier models suffered a loss of compartmental space due to the positioning of the rear suspension. In 2017, the introduc

  25. Please don't say that . As rider, we can point out rule driving style, in return as driver, they can also point out our rule riding style too. The reason you got the fine can be from anyone and not exactly from the vehicle behind you in the same lane. Avoid cutting in from right, especially with RED right arrow. Reason due; 1) Rider may be moving and brake to STOP for turn right (RED arrow), causing slow down or e Brake to the moving lane behind on GREEN. 2) Rider cut Q into the right turn lane (Red Arrow), and bike rear obstructed the left lane traffic movement (half the bike in

  27. Here is another solo trip where I explored Endau Rompin National Johor Park, this time to Lemarko Falls. Highly recommended to use a lightweight motorcycle if you intend to do it alone, the last few kms to Lemarko falls was steep with moderately deep trenches. The ride alone is about 55km(s) one way after you veer off the main-road and hit the logging trail. Prepare for lots of mud if you intend to ride during the monsoon season. This would make for a great place for overnight camping and also lots of fun chilling in the waterfall/river area. I had the entire place for myself when I was t

  29. Individual preference I guess. Maybe those riding the big bikes are just earning extra cash and also that's all they have. I would say however that doing delivery on a Class 2 sports bike isn't that practical...

After passing and getting the 2B licence after a few tries, I would like to share the techniques to clear the 5 courses in the SSDC circuit. I would like to also include some tips of Road riding, which is the second section of the TP test. Allow me to start from the beginning. Turn on left signal. Check for traffic and check back and move off. Check right (turn your head right) at the first turn of the circuit shortly after yo

  36. @AnO Due 5 month, you will need to calculate the outstanding settlement plus overdue interest charges and put up for sale. If outstanding is too high, you may need to let the bike shop sell it off and continue to pay off the outstanding. You dont have much option and only choice to me is to let go of the bike as soon as possible and free yourself from the debt in long run..

  37. Did the riding simulator recently for Class 2 license, was abit nauseating during first session but instructor gave some tips - plant both feet on the floor instead of on the foot-pegs. I think the riding/driving simulator is great for beginners (Class 2B) as it is about 50% similar to what you will experience on the roads and prepare you for it, but for the Class 2A and 2 learners.. We've already been on the road so it's more like a 'game'. I usually book the riding simulator before/after my lesson so i don't have to make an extra trip. I would love to do all 3 required session

  38. Both the Yamahas will be fine for spare parts and maintenance, don't worry about that. NMax has a slightly larger storage underseat than the Aerox. Scomadi finding parts might be difficult.. Rather you got for a Lambretta if you're looking for a cheaper Vespa alternative. For Gilera.. Most powerful 2B scooter but it's getting up there in age and a lot of examples in the market has been trashed so be on the lookout for a well-kept model if you decide on the ST200 Runner. I'd recommend either of the Yamahas personally.

Various biking groups like 2WHEELERS.SG, Goldwingers Singapore, etc banded together and the response from the biking community was so over whelming that they had to close registration for volunteers. Thanks once again to all riders involved and SingaporeBikes.com will be on hand to support the next event and to gather bikers together to support our local community.
