  3. How is the gauge inaccuracy relevant to ride the god damn bike? I have been riding it even though it was supposed to be a weekend bike. Plus the foul weather doesn't help.
  4. So I do have the best of the best. Ok, need to study how to adjust it. It aint that hard right? Oh yes, I would like to ask another question. How will I know if the Vee is in reserve fuel? "E" starts to blink? Last night when she had a bar left, the "E" started blinking. Anyhoo, I also suspect the gauge isn't working properly because after full top up to the brim, the gauge only had 3 bars (not full at 4 bars). Interesting...
  5. I know. It's annoying if it's at high speed. I think the one on Dave's bike is adjustable tho I haven't spend time on it yet. It's the one on MO in this thread. Can't remember who was selling. If it's still not enough, I'll contact Tankee. How are you enjoying ur ride?
  6. Thanks. I did ring Clifford but he was way too busy to entertain me as he was rushing out some of his outstanding jobs. He did however said that he will explain how the bike works when he's better with his schedule. He knew I have taken over your bike. Anyway, I took her out for a spin to Gelang Patah earlier with a few kakis. Overall, it was bearable. But I do need to adjust the windshield coz at the moment, the wind's deflected right to my helmet. Perhaps due to my height on the bike.
  7. Ok, Im back to flood the forum again. I think I may have found what the problem is with the growl I was asking above. According to stromtrooper forum, it's v likely that the problem is clutch chuddering which causes vibration in the 2.5-4.5k rpm range. There were some recommended fixes posted which involve clutch basket but I have no clue what they were saying (dumb dumb). Apparently 80% of vibration of low rpm disappeared after fixing it. Now, anyone here has theirs fixed? If so, can help me out by telling me where to go to solve it? K & T issit? Cheers.

  9. Haha. I know I shouldn't speak too soon on the speed part. Maybe I will, maybe I wont. Just have to wait and see if I dare. But usually it's the case of bike can rider can't! At least for my case. Oh wait.. one more question. I get a loud "growl" when rpm is hoovering 2.5-3k. But after that, it's real smooth. I'm not too sure how to explain the growl but it's almost like there's a soft spot where rpm is too low for speed. I understand if the rpm is too slow for a speed that will happen. But to move of at gear one, then a growl around those rpm? Same for every gears. Also, I find engagi
  10. Thanks for the info. I guess 360km is not a bad return for the power and stature it offers. Speed wise, I don't think I will even hit 180km/h (maybe too early to say. Haha). Structurely I find it a little too tall for that speed. In anycase, how fast have the bros gone on the Strom?
  11. No wheelie.. not so adventurous. Still coping with its power and torque. Anyway, for conversation sake, how many kilometres can she fetch per full tank? Should help to monitor that she's operating normal.
  12. It's official now. Took onwership of a used K5 Vee. First ride earlier along TPE. Nice thumping sound coming from the Vtwin. Very torquey too. Must however get used to the high rev engine. Can I ask what's the recommended RPM for gear change? Look forward to meet up soon.
