  2. 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

  6. The simple guide for beginner riders in Singapore to choose your first motorcycle gloves. We only have wet and dry weather here,. Easy peasy. Things to consider Usage - Are gloves for road riding only, or for off-road, track racing, touring? Size & Fit - Yes, gloves come in different sizes. If you buy too large or small gloves, you won't be able to grip properly Hard Knuckles - For extra protection, some gloves come with carbon fibre armour at the knuckles and finger joints areas. Padding - Are the gloves too thick/thin for you to feel your clutch? Are

  8. @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!

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  18. 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

  21. Took me 4 tries to pass the circuit assessment, but I'll tell you, practice makes perfect. I know that sian feeling but don't give up. You'll get there soon. For figure 8, you need to minimally go at 12-15km/h, try to keep the throttle constant. Just before you turn into the curve of the figure 8, turn off your signal and focus on the throttle. Don't be afraid that you're going to fall, you just have to grip the tank with your knees and believe in physics. In the middle of the figure 8 during the straight path, speed up slightly and before you enter the curve again, turn on the si

  23. 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

  24. A guide for beginner riders to prep for your first motorbike. Here is a list of essential riding gear and apparel to buy: Rain Coat Choose a raincoat without a hood so that the rain water doesn't collect in the hood. Having a hood also causes wind drag, unless you tuck it into your helmet. A good quality raincoat won't have lining that starts peeling after a few wears. So it'll save you more money in the long-run to invest in quality. Gloves Unlike durian gloves, proper motorcycle gloves come with armoured knuckles, touchscreen material for index fingers, and are made

But Time passes fast. when I am able to retake them again. I saved up and went for it. retook my CL 3 in 2018, passed 1st time, SSDC retook my 2B during Covid19 period. passed 1st time too.

  29. 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

  31. 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...

  32. 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

  33. 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

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

  43. 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

  44. 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.
