  1. Singapore is not known as an automotive hub by any means. But as invisible as it is in the grand scheme of things, we actually do have attempts at creating such an industry...well sort of.

  2. Money is a big concern to anyone, and finding #financing to purchase a #motorcycle of your dreams are a bigger concern. #Singapore has some unique rules in the way we do things, but financial planning is universal, so here are some considerations to think of before taking the leap and signing the dotted line on a new loan.

  4. I think it's fair to tell us, we cannot ride the bike on the road. The road belongs to the country belongs to the public, so if they say cannot use, then I LLST just follow. But what I cannot accept is them telling us what to do with our property. We are not even allowed to empty the gas tank, clean the bike, remove all the oil and fluids and store it in our own house as a keepsake. Instead we have no choice but to destroy or export the bike out of the country, cos this is how deregistration must be handled here. Some of these bikes got sentimental value if not historical value that can be handed to the next generation to appreciate, but no, ah gong say cannot. Bloody dumb move I tell you ah.
  5. Probably will skip 9 and go straight to 10. The past increases always seems to do it in even numbers....
  6. Bring it to an inspection center to check whether the IU is truly dead or problem with the wiring first? If your IU really dead, you got no choice but to buy another one, or ask shop if they have second hand IU which is cheaper.
  7. Buy from direct sellers, even better those that have multiple bikes, more likely to be enthusiasts who will take care of their machines. Shops tend to let the bike rot there for very long before they can sell it. Also no incentive to sayang the bike, just do minimal repair and refurbishing and resell.
  8. Yes you can use carbon fibre fairings as long as they maintain the same silhouette, it's tied to the headlight rules since using a race fairing will require you to cover or dismantle your stock headlights.
  9. It depends on the mods, some mods have a clear cut allowed/not allowed label, others are a bit more grey. So I'll list down a few. 1. Exhaust systems : Aftermarket slip-ons and full systems are allowed, subject to approval. You just have to send the bike with the exhaust fitted to an inspection center to get it certified. If it's an exhaust for a bike of a particular model year that has never been paired before, there is a chance the inspection will fail, depending on the results and you cannot use the exhaust on public roads. If it's a setup that has been used before, it's more likely to pass. If you don't really care that much, you can just use the stock exhaust on the roads, swap it out for an aftermarket for track days and tow the bike there. 2. ECU mods: Totally allowed to reflash, or you can slap a Power Commander as you see fit. Or both. 3. Suspension: Allowed 4. Brake system: Only the stock rotors and calipers can be used. Pads however, can be whatever you see fit. Master cylinder, levers and hoses can be changed as you see fit. If the bike comes with ABS, its stock engagement settings beyond what the manufacturer allows cannot be tampered with. 5. Wheels and rims : Allowed 6. Tires : No motocross or racing slicks. Sport and touring tires for road use only, dual sport tires are also allowed. 7. Air Filter : Allowed (duh) 8. Clutch, shifter : Swapping a cabled clutch for a hydraulic one and vice versa are not allowed. A quickshifter is allowed. Changing to a GP shift pattern is in a grey area. 9. Gearing : Swapping both front and rear sprockets are allowed. 10. Steering damper : Allowed 11. Aesthetics : Aftermarket headlights on faired bikes not allowed, unfaired motorcycles are A-ok as long as they are roughly the same size, bulbs used must match the stock ones. Fairings cannot be removed from a faired bike, and aftermarket options must share the same shape and silhouette as the stock ones. Rearsets, levers, handlebars/clipons, grips, seats, instrument clusters are all allowed.
  10. This forum really needs to start upgrading their security system to at the very least stop bots, and limit links to posters above a certain reputation level sia.
  11. The proof they require can be anything to establish ownership of the bike for a period. So insurance papers (to show ownership during the period) together with the bike's registration (to show it is a big bike) will usually suffice. Triumph is relatively affordable along the line of BMW standards in Singapore, depending on the model. Ducatis are just plain expensive with the exception of the Monster and mini 400cc Scrambler. A Honda Africa Twin is actually a pretty decent choice. Take note I am referring to prices of entirely new bikes. If you do choose to get into buying used machines, they can be cheap enough to buy a Ducati.
  12. Hi! I'll try to answer you as best I can. First of, converting a UK license over to the local one is extremely easy. We have 3 tiers, 2B (=401). In order to get the full license here converted from your UK one, you will require at least your full British A license, as well as ownership documents of motorcycles above 401cc to prove you have owned and ridden them for at least 3 years. Anything less, and you are likely only to be awarded the minimum 2B license. Second, do consider leaving your bikes in the UK. Importing them requires you to pay import taxes, subject them to a local registration system that costs several thousand dollars, and also means you have to keep paying these taxes every 10 years in order to keep it within Singapore's borders. You should absolutely not bring your own bike unless you have no intention of ever ending residence in Singapore, and have deep emotional attachment to that particular bike. Prices of motorcycles in general are somewhere between triple to 1.5x what you would get back in the UK. BMWs will definitely cost a lot more than what you are used to paying in the UK. However dealer support for GS's are good as they are pretty popular machines among the middle-aged male crowd here, but they are also extremely pricey as parts have to be imported from Europe, beware. If you are not picky about having a BMW, choosing a Honda or Yamaha manufactured in Japan, India, Indonesia or Thailand is going to be a far more affordable choice with a wide range of parts and workshops capable of servicing them.
  13. Nope, Ulu Choh's rental is their own, Dirt State is in Kota Tinggi so likely different company. My friend also said Ulu Choh rental is more expensive. Dirt State is cheaper, and they have a guided tour, but their's is more like enduro touring on flat ground, Ulu Choh is for people that want to do MX jumps.
  14. I don't have info yet about Ulu Choh, I only know they have bike rental because my friend went there before. Yea, don't trust Tristan, you can't change a leopard's sports no matter how hard you try.
