Hi fellow BBs..

 

As for the engine oil, do i really need to use a fully synthetic oil? or a semi one will do?

 

Mine is the FI model, FT plate... wondering if some mods are required to make it more "fierce" ? if yes wat is required?

 

and some good recommendations of trustworthy bike shops pls...thks!!

I feel..

Blackbird is known for it smoothness rather than anything else. If you really decided to mod it become more "fierce", i guess it might not be very suitable for ya. It like changing the real nature of the bike..

 

No hard feeling tot, just my personal opinion.

Hi,

I've just hit my second oil change, before that i brought up the rear of the BB by 6mm using spacers inserted above the suspension. It gives the BB better handling and makes the bike lighter. Able to turn the bike easily as the handling is so much lighter. When I reach 3k on the odom then i'll tune the injector, change the air filter knn, change to iridium plugs,lower my front forks, purge the catalyic converters at the exhaust to make it run cooler and not trap too much heat. Maybe a rear hugger to keep my girl happy so that when it rains, water will not splash on her when pillion. And of course not forgetting a bra to protect my BB's modesty... haha!

 

Just some of my future undertakings

 

:cheeky:

Hi

 

Care to share how does adding the 6mm spacers improve the handling and making the bike lighter?

 

And how does purging the catalytic converter helps the bike run cooler?

 

Thanks

Many bird riders swear by semi syn.

I'd always used fully syn for my 4 yr old bird, no complains.

 

For a newer engine its adequate to use semi-syn. For an older engine can use fully syn, so call more protection for a longer period.

 

Sad to hear that your side mirror is damaged. Its pretty costly to replace the bird's side mirror. You can try calling boon siew to ask for a quotation.

They have a "honda parts book" which show every parts from signal to BB special washer. And btw they are definately cheaper than Boon Siew.

If you're not the sort who visit track, 020 is a good everyday road tire with good grip(not excellent grip) and lotsa mileage in it. A good touring tire with occassional fun rides thru the corners.

I have try Castrol , Motul, Esso,Repsol on my blackbird. I think the best of all is the Repsol Semi-synthetic which is so smooth. I bought it from JB but dun know they still have it.

yup, its not really confident in the rain. Well alot of tires are not really good in the wet. Depends la. high speed straight it can still brake confidently, corners have to be real slow. Ride safe when wet.

 

Michelin no comments cos never use b4. hehe

Repsol, a couple of frds using it and they are full of praise for it. I never try before.
