how much do u pay for the yamaha rectifier? ah boy got sell? :bounce:

 

Cannot remember the exact price. somewhere between 150-180 bucks i think. definitely less than $180. Original kawa rectifier is in the region of $250 i think. however I suggest u go to a proper workshop for your rectifier. somewhere that can give u a guaratee if anything goes wrong. if im not mistaken, a rectifier with the wrong output can cause your battery and cdi to go bonkers.

just found out the price for kawa rectifier....$280

dunno whether wan to stick to kawa or yamaha rectifier....hmm, eugene motors at sin ming ok or not? dunno whether wan to change to yamaha n later spoil the electrical system. btw, does a different brand rectifier affect engine performance/speed?

eugene tan should be a good choice. they will take the effort to explain whatever is wrong with your bike,what needs to be done and dun mind teaching u simple stuffs. anyway i changed my rectifier at the much maligned Excel Motors. They seems ok to me despite all the crap thrown at them by some pple. juz dont try to look blur when dealing with them i guess. anyway good luck with ur quest to get ur baby purring again. i'll post in this forum if my yamaha rectifier cause my baby to go senile.

I just went to evershine to repair my bike cause got a strange sound from my engine. They suspect this and that and eventually changed the following item:

1) timing belt(changed last yr only)

2) tensioner

3) gasket

4) 4x lockerarm

5) clamp shaft

6)do valve clearance

Total act up to be more than$1k++. Before collectecting, call me again and told me my start button is not working, if going to change, need to add in $100++. He shown me the switch been melted and the copper contact sink in. I told him that is not possible as I don't face any starting problem at all and when i pass him the bike, no problem to start and now totally cannot start. Seeing that i am in a black face, he then tried to repair for me. I always don't have a good impression of them and their service and parts are always so XXX.Hope that there are other kawa agent in town. :? :?

Ah Hai from Dili no doubt is good, however His stinking attitude is a HUGE turns off...

 

Ah Hock from Combine is easier to talk to and he wrenches much better then Ah Hai...

 

No experience with Combine hence cannot do a comparison with the 2 fellas but I do agree that Ah Hai does have some "I'm one up" attitude. Once you know how he works, you can almost pull him around by the nose.... but then again, it depends on his mood...

glad to know that my bike is in good hands!!...

 

anyway...the mechanic at combine says that some parts of my wiring is worn off therefore it cannot start and the batt needs to be change...luckily its just a small problem... :sweat:

 

But the towing service took quite a long time to get to my place....3hrs to be exact....i think abit to long....anyone knows of a good towing service???? :confused:

remedy:

i flush it down and bleed the whole cooling system and gives it fresh coolant to finish the job and observe if this boil over occurs again.

 

keep us updated on your woes

 

I've flushed my cooling system and pump it with fresh coolant. duckhams glycol to be exact. will update if my bike vomit coolant again.

 

somehow i think my choice of engine oil kinda affect the temperature. the vomitting incident happened while my bike is filled with the highly rated silkolene pro. the temp went up fast eversince i used it. no such prob with mobil 1 or esso gold. have changed back to esso gold when i flushed my coling system.

 

anyway thats just my opinion. so all the silkolene supporter dun flame me or file a lawsuit k?

 

cheers
