  1. Start with basic mineral 2T such as Shell advance. 20ml is enough for a 10 litre tank.

    Avoid semi-synthetic as they may/will apparently form deposits when burnt.

    Don't go for the most expensive 2T as IMO, it defeats the purpose of this cheap engine tuning trick. Namely, it must be cheap.

     

    500ml Shell Advance 2T (yellow bottle mineral one) = $5.35. Enough for 25 full tanks. Use Shell 95/98 + Shell 2T = cheaper than V Power

  2. The most fun MW4 matches are those that involve huge battles, static battle lines and combined-arms tactics. Heck, the flying LRMs are graphically, the most entertaining thing in the game.

  3. The smaller dude with the spectacles? He appears to be still under training. He's the one that did my 'racing' clutch replacement a few days ago. He was very easy to joke with and looked to like his job. This was however a Thursday afternoon/evening where the crowd was more or less manageable.
  4. I just saw in the video the "two men" walking towards the Seletar end of the bridge just as main force started off. Spooky. There was also the ah pek phantom sneaking up the pavement like a ninja using some planks to mount the kerb. @tankee1981 did inform me beforehand the route could be usable by road-going traffic already. Noted your comment earlier that we should adopt an alternate night and day schedule for the rides; this we should put up for discussion first because I find the dawn schedule is much more entertaining and safer too for everyone. Human alertness tends to "increase" at fi
  5. Ah Chong needs more mechanics to keep up with demand. Or else, overworked crew = standard sure not as good one.
  6. LOL it was fun road drama. I used the Ducato van (yes that's really the van's name) as a battering ram to clear the last bit. Until the driver got confused about the lane markings lol. You had a Super Four tailing you as though he wanted to join the convoy. Upload of these HD videos is quite hellish, the first part you saw had been uploading since dinner time yesterday, and Episode 2: The Forbidden Highway starring the recon detachment is due out in a couple of hours. I also bought ourselves a domain name via a US web host and will be putting up the website together plus pillow displ
  7. Thanks Boon Kiat and @eddy for co-leading part 1 of yesterday's ride - and @xindes + @2wheels for guest starring lol. Part 1 of the video: [video=youtube;s-Mk4ZKksng]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-Mk4ZKksng
  8. @xindes nice having you in the group Today was a very efficient trip across northern Singapore, providing battle fleet escort to many Malaysian commuters along Admiralty Rd. Not everyday you get to "officially" open new roads, cutting travel time from Seletar to Punggol in half We met an awesome Steed rider (and wife) at the end point outside Anchorvale Macdonalds too
  9. Oh look, its 0330h. Soon we can say the magic words Autobots, move out! lol
  10. Random pictures of the day http://i1224.photobucket.com/albums/ee372/pandoraskitten/Mandai%20Lakeside/IMG_0702.jpg http://s1224.photobucket.com/albums/ee372/pandoraskitten/Mandai%20Lakeside/
  11. Signal mirrors - hi end cars (Benz, BMW) have signal mirrors and they definitely are legal lol. I think it won't be a problem so long as the signals are visible (perhaps MORE visible than the standard fork or lower fairing mounts). We can also take comfort in the fact that retailers like Motoworld aren't allowed to sell illegal items and signal mirrors are part of the inventory. LTA guidelines also don't mention signal mirrors as outlawed, infact, I find the guidelines very outdated but are still used as reference. End of the day we aren't doing anything funny that would upset the handli
  12. There is one small issue - Planet just ran out of Chex and said the supplier can't keep up with demand! I switched to Pennzoil Titanium 4T (10W40 $24) yesterday but its a bit costier and less convenient. Walked to Motoworld to get it while Ah Chong was installing new suspension. Decent alternatives currently available at Planet include Motul mineral and semi (20 plus dollars) and Maxima (40 or 50 weight syn or blend, your choice) - also 20 plus. I read about a shop in Ang Mo Kio that does sell Chex but I'm not too familiar with that area.
  13. Hahahaha, watch out for evil uncles behind trees holding video cameras! (NEA!). Lets inspect your work tomorrow and yes Motoworld sells bar end mirrors... however I think they only have the "balancer" type. We can make that place a last stop tomorrow, as usual.
  14. Just get one litre and "let god sort it out" No point bickering over the last 1-200ml as slightly over or under filled is still within running tolerances. Some overfill to compensate for EO consumption, others use one litre for convenience's sake and also because the oil consumption issue can be solved very easily by tuning the engine to run at expected speeds without overheating. A small amount of oil consumption is natural for an old machine with less than perfect piston ring sealing, that's why it's recommended to check the engine oil level every week or so. The bike will "tell" y
  15. Next up on my shopping list I'm looking to install foglights. Already know the price, from browsing in the basement Enquiry - does foglight installation include a switch? Do I need to state my preference for the electrical bits? I.e., connect direct to battery, run off headlamp circuit, etc.
  16. Btw - tried Pennzoil Titanium fully synthetic 4T today because Planet ran out of Chex 9000. The oil is fantastic. The bike sounds like a bloody machine gun now. Vibrations seem to be much reduced (compared to Castrol or Chex) when cold starting or idling and performance seems very much improved because this oil can dissipate heat very fast. Ah Chong gave me a lean carb tuning for maximum horsepower and with this oil, it actually works. No power loss during/after high speed expressway runs. I wanted to try Rimula R3X (which is both petrol and diesel rated and I believe, similar to Delvac)
  17. Spent 8 hours at planet for the following Installation of TA150 back suspension set (from @yeukeong , ebay purchase) Replace clutch pack (Ah Chong special clutch) Replace front forks (Honda original) and lower front suspension by 1 inch. Pennzoil Titanium 4T (from Motoworld) Although some people made some negative comments on my choice of oil, expensive handlebars ($500 one), fully synthetic oil, custom suspension and type R stickers here and there, the result of a day's labour is well worth the expense. The bike corners naturally, not like a "cruiser" anymore but sharp and precis
  18. You may have confused protective additives with friction reducers :-) Car oil has friction reducers because engine uses separate lubrication from the transmission. They add friction reducers to boost fuel efficiency. On most bikes, the clutch uses the same oil as the engine, (wet clutch), so using friction reducers will make the clutch slip and that is very bad. Bike with dry clutch like Silver Wing can use friction reducing oil if the rider knows how to benefit from the tech. For the same reason, do not listen to any of the marketing associated with oil additives. Many of them con
  19. Lol so expensive! That price would cover a lot more things at Planet. Prices today: $180 one pair Honda original front forks $60 new clutch pack $20 labour I also swapped my rear suspension for a much nicer looking set from a TA150, also lowered front suspension for better cornering, added windshield from Gilera for the Intruder look.

  20. The Pennzoil is very good! Thanks :-) Sent from my hong kong gangsta phone using Tapatalk
  21. http://tapatalk.com/mu/b48158fb-5beb-399d.jpghttp://tapatalk.com/mu/b48158fb-5c03-5ccd.jpghttp://tapatalk.com/mu/b48158fb-5c1e-9c99.jpghttp://tapatalk.com/mu/b48158fb-5c2b-3d31.jpg Today at Planet. Fitting a newly chromed TA150 suspension. Planet ran out of Chex motor oil due to good sales, supplier can't keep up with demand. Also saw a KR with Mazda pillow lol Sent from my hong kong gangsta phone using Tapatalk Now changing clutch pack and later, replace front suspension. Seeing if i can get ah chong to stiffen the front suspension up for proper monstery cornering action :-
  22. Hi motoworld, do you guys entertain basic servicing requests like oil change etc? Any labour charge? I want to try Pennzoil Titanium due to its stellar reviews overseas. Sent from my hong kong gangsta phone using Tapatalk
  23. Lol ok its just like giving someone a shower. Except the someone won't complain no matter how you wash or where you touch. Newbie friendly. Lol. Sent from my hong kong gangsta phone using Tapatalk
  24. I think it's like washing a car, but ten times quicker :-) Sent from my hong kong gangsta phone using Tapatalk
