Hope u find what u r looking for... check out the classified in the straits time today. they have some busa for sale. might find a good deal there..

 

im currently saving money to modify my bike.. exhausted all my reserves in buying the bike... :giddy: will cost me 1800 for the full exhaust and 590 for the power commander.. sigh.. maybe by christmas.. ;)

 

so far hit 200km/hr++ on the AYE.. bloody hell of brute, i mean the bike.. not even a whimper from the engine at that speed.. :lol: :lol: :lol: will try and hit 300 when i go KL next month... :D

 

when i started off 12years back on my 1st bike (2nd hand), [email protected] problematic. the Mechanic mentioned "Motor means yue mo yue duo" = the more you touch the more you pay $$$.

 

Well, i believe all the Motor Enthusiatic are all willing to fork $$$ in getting the best for the machines. Just like @ that classic movie by Andy Lau "Full Throttle".

 

Hey, post your write up on the forum after you tested your BB on the NE expressway okie?

 

Today, saw one FU plate Blue BB advertised by one motordiam. Call up and was told the mileage is only 15 000km, selling @ $15K. Looks pretty attractive for the mileage even though the price is abit steep based on a FU plate.

 

Hope next week can catch it, cos tomorrow go back ICT for one week.

How to wheelie your bird :

 

Qn : When using the clutch in second to do the wheelie do you drop it at a certain rev or ease it pull the revs on quickly or what?

 

Ans : with clutch in second, about 5500rpm....(5000 is possible) pull in the clutch with one finger, rev real high in one sec, about 9 or 10k rpm dump the clutch an stay on the gas.

 

the moment that your front wheel is lifting close gas slowly...when you are so high that you cannot look through your window you are allmost on your balance point

 

extra note:

 

when you are going to land your bird, please do NOT close the gas ummidiately, close it a little...by little...and when you put your front wheel allmost to earth, then throttle up! you wont kick over or something...

 

due your acc. you get a soft landing and you won t wrist your ball and socket joint-bairing-... (balhoofdlager voor de dutch people)

 

you can do it with default springs as good as with hyperpro or WP, but...with the hyper or WP the wheelie feels more stable...

 

my record is a second gear wheelie of 500 meters, i went up at 60km/h and landed about 160/170km/h, twice a shifted gears to 3rd and landed the wheely with 200km/h but, that resulted twice in a nasty tankslapper...

 

i got out of the tankslapper, but it scared the hell out of me....if you are going to do some of that tricks with that speeds please assemble a steeringdamper, this device will keep you out of trouble!

 

when your are going to land..throttle up...

then your front wheel has the time to speed up a little bit so the tankslapping part will remain not as bad as it should be.

 

als a steering demper wil help dramaticly....to reduce this kind of activties!

Yo Cheers to Blackbird lovers out there!! You guys made a good choice of future washing, polishing, maintainig and best of all, Riding it.... By far, one of the most ridability, all rounder sports-tourer bikes ever made...so far, that is.....

 

I bought mine after alot of research, thru word of mouth and also mags n Internet..... Mine's blue, coz it really stands out in the day, and look quite cool in the night...

 

Recommend : Change engine oil not to 4T but to Castrol Syntex. You can only get it done at a mechanic at AMK. Alot of my blackbird buddies swear by it. AFter the change, not only the engine's smoother, but the acceleration improved quite abit..... PLus original oil filter, all in is $125 which is pretty good considering the quality of the oil....

 

Tires :- Still the recommended is Batlax-020. ITs specially for sports tourer- good road holding as well as mileage... You guys wanna try Metzler Sportec M1, its sticky but wears out pretty fast..... so its up to ur pockets man!!!

 

Performance : - When we do distance trips eg, KL n above, Thailand... we tried doing tops... one of us manage to do apprx 305kmh.... the rest of the trip jus crusiing at 260kmh.... yet still damn smooth n stable all the way....!!! Oh by the way, the bike takes off like a jetplane.... so carefull with the throttle.. n also the egos of other hypersports riders... it really hurt them.... coz the 'birds pick up 0 -100kmh , apprx 3 secs or less...

 

If you guys were to drop by Jlk Kayu Prata (at the top hill side..) on Fridays, you'll be able to see 10 - 15 'Birds at least.... we always go there to meet up, coffee....trips....etc.... you guys are welcome to join us.... email me @ [email protected] if you have any enquiry.....

 

Take care guys!!!!!

thematrix, can you tell me where is a good place to send the Blackbird for regular servicing?

 

Hi heiniao!

 

The most recommended place is Stamford Motor Trading Blk 10 Ang Mo Kio Ind. Park 2A. #05-27 Autopoint. The guy's name is Alex. He's very good, uses only quality engine oil. He will definitely use Caltex Syntex, 4 litre $100. U will really feel the diff after oil change, esp during acceleration. But most impt is it protects ur engine thru extreme high temperature which Blackbird is famous for. Our bike run really really hot, so cannot use semi-syn or any unsuitable oil.

 

Oh, plus original filter $25. And you can ask him anything about ur bike n he can tell u the facts, not just bulls**t that other mechanics normally give.

 

* You cant juz drop by n do it, u will have to wait for days, coz he got damn lots of bikes to do. U let me know when u going down, i'll give him a call, den when u go there u let him know i recommend u to him. - Its the same for my case too during my first time..!! :D

 

CheerS!

Thanks for the recommendation!

 

I presume you are referring to Castrol Syntec? Which grade are you using?

ANyway, its not like booking or something, just that have to inform him that you r coming n he will do urs first, once i tell him that i recommend him to you.

 

All my 'birds buddies swear by him so i dun think its much of a hindrance anyway rite...
