Heh heh............I vote anywhere central or north coz' I stay Serangoon. Anyway, went down Looi's moto yesterday. Wanted to change clutch lever n brake pads, both together the old man wana charge me $300! plus brake pads no stock must come back nxt week. Old man also say he don't service Stroms that r not bought frm him coz' he know outside Stroms got no parts then come find him try luck, plus he himself also air-fly parts over. Alamak, so unfriendly sia e old man.

Yah, coz' old man Looi say "original" Suzuki brake pad is $120 for front, $120 for back (combine $240 liao) .................. *faint* ..................so plus clutch handle $70 means total is $310!! Hahaha...................... old man think my father print Dollar Notes for a living......................

Yes sirs.............lets meetup on weekends or weekday nights. It seems that motoshops generally don't like to service our bikes, so we all need a peer-2-peer V-Strom support group........haha

Hi all!! I'm new the strom tl1000. Can anyone recommend a good service motoshop? I am experiencing the 3 big problems of the Strom already (ie engine stall at red light, over-vibration during pick-up and astmatic exhaust after I took out the damn noisey SuperTrapps).

 

I went to motoshop friend reccomend but I think may be abit too expensive for me.

you need a teka reader to reset to factory setting... plug it in and reset it to 0%.. less than 5 mins job... i am not sure which bike shop has it...

I had to agree that Vstrom community in Spore is very small.. Its good to meet up. There's not much accessories and spares for our bikes. But I can say Vstrom is a fun bike.

 

For the new user ..pls visit these forum : http://11109.rapidforum.com/

It helps me a lot .. giving solutions and ideas ..

 

If there's a meet up , kindly invite the Vstrom guru : Mr Peter

 

:goodluck: :clapping:

Why not try the new Brigestones Battlwing BT501 ? ..it got nice design and deep thread . But i think there's an offer for Annakees selling at $280.

 

As for the sprockets ... I am currently using 17 front / 43 rear .... add two teeth for the rear. It makes some difference.

 

-I find that the shift from first to second gear happens faster now.

- The bike pulls way better in 2nd and 3rd gears; it feels like the bike has more torque. nice.

- I can ride at slower speeds in 1st gear.

- I can ride at lower rpms in any gear.

- I perceive there to be less of a gap between 5th gear and 6th.

- The bike feels better to ride

 

Too bad u cant get it easily in Spore. I got mine fly in from US.
