  1. Fingers crossed.. Euro 5 models means it will not be carb and will have a huge exhaust!!
  2. Exhausts There are few brands of Street Legal Exhaust for Tmax DX/SX to choose from. All Tmax exhaust are full system due to the stock exhaust system being in one big piece. Akraprovic (Tmax OEM) Termignoni SC Project Arrow
  3. Factory Recalls Firstly I need to apologies that my knowledge is only updated on 2017 DX models as it's the model I am riding.. Currently there's 4 recalls on the Gen 6 model as what I recalled.. ECU Recall (R2019030682) - this recall is fairly simple; go down to Hong Leong to have the ECU reflashed. This recall is to eliminate some engine cut off issues. Drive Belt Recall (R2019030681) - Hong Leong will change a new belt for you... The older belt will wear prematurely. The new belt is improved and can be identified with blue wordings. (see attached photo for reference
  4. CVT/Torque Driver Issues and upgrades Do religiously maintain your CVT as the V belt can break from over usage. Recommended mileage is 20,000km (12,500miles) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most scooters will have the V belt indicators lighted up when the mileage is reached. Before this indicator lighted up, you should have prepare the consumables for your CVT servicing. If you are using stock variator, the following are needed: V belt (Different years will have
  5. Engine Check Light (ECL) issues One of the most common issue is the O2 (Oxygen) Sensor, the other issue will be the wheel sensor. Scenario can reset 1. Forget connect O2 sensor during CVT change 2. O2 sensor dirty (stuck lean) 3. Error reading Scenario cannot reset 1. Broken circuitry (due to heat) 2. Wires broke during CVT change With ECL lighted up, there's no way to go into menu at all for Gen 6 and above models. Not all shops have the diagnostic tool to erase the ECL. Most of the time, the replacement of the O2 sensor will solve the problem
  6. i just done some research.. not just only these differences in visual.. 560 had a better cooling, new engine block with additional water cooling.. Throttle body, manifold, injectors and throttle position sensor are all removeable unlike SX/DX models.. better transmission ratios..
  7. Primary Pulley Greasing Some of you had PM me asking me why should we use the proper grease for our primary pulley.. let me explain in detail.. This Yamaha Grease J is specially formulated for penetration and will turn lower viscosity when heated.. our primary pulley will be very hot once you start rolling.. then will penetrate the gearing teeth to lubricate and remove heat.. the high temp blue grease that most of you think that's working, will not turn into lower viscosity fluid like Grease J during high temperature.. it will just be centrifuged out, thus the blue grease wo
  8. I've already sold it many years ago.. it's because of newer emission laws that's why no newer DRZs are produced. Soon there'll be not much more DRZs in SG..
  9. @JJBuBBle no no.. I’m not using the pro.. I’m using the pro racing, it’s the highest spec of the 3 different versions for tmax.. which is limited production and no longer available in the market! the best for my Max..!! Haha Manual says change at 20k km.. EO depends on individual, I personally change EO at 3k km.. so it’s about 7 EO changes to a full cvt belt and rollers change..
  10. Mine is special Pro Racing. Limited production. Only the best for my ride.. haha 560 had a totally different clutch, CVT and engine.. not sure if anyone tried before.. but clutch plates are interchangeable.. in fact, 560 friction plates have over write 530 part numbers as they are the improved version..
  11. Changed as a set.. belt, rollers and cleaning.. I changed clutch once when I switched to Jcosta housing before my solo Thailand trip. Many tmax had experienced clutch slip thus they changed their clutch plates as early as about 10k plus.. but possible to last quite long as much as 20-30k km.. new clutch plates (560 ones) have more friction plates and comes thicker..
  12. On manual is 20k km already changed 3 times on my Tmax.. not yet on Xmax..
  13. I never own a chain driven class 2 bike before.. to me, after riding so many years.. I would want a less dirty alternative.. but the drive belt isn’t cheap.. it’s about $300 and if u dun adjust it properly, it will wear out prematurely.. I’ll cover this topic later in the FAQ thread.. but I’ll do a quick breakdown here: Xmax cvt change: about $100 for the vbelt, u clips and rollers. tmax cvt change: about $200 for the same items. I own both Xmax and Tmax.. all I can say is tmax maintenance costs is not just double of Xmax..
  14. I took my Tmax to Phuket with just a tunnel bag of clothes.. Xmax definitely have more than enough space.. Underseat was all tools and spares.. to me, that should be the way to pack.. when I go Golden Triangle or China, i'll just add a tail bag.. Travel light is way to go..
  15. I heard using this seat will reduce the underseat storage space.. it's considered cheap.. I wanna buy Tmax one.. but it's $800++..
  16. I’m riding both Tmax and Xmax.. I’m 185 and cannot flat feet on ground for both bikes if I sit all the way back.. not really issue for both bikes as they are light weight compared to touring bikes.. rode FJR, even I can flat foot; I can’t tahan the weight.. Need to get used to the bike.. dun be turned off becuz of this issue..
  17. only small groups of 5 or less.. following govt law.. i can poison u to buy Tmax!! haha..
  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
  19. 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
