From my experience(or my friends' rather) the common way your helmet gets stolen is for the strap leading up to the rings to be burnt/cut. For a one-use pillion helmet. as usually one would padlock their helmet through the rings.

 

Yeah may get a padlock and lock the ring to the pillion foot rest. Thks!

Hahaha, I couldn't be too bothered to stop an eager beaver

Any one interested in ordering Diamond Rear sets? Looking ard $380 each..

Order to be placed next Wed or so....

 

would really love to order tt chio rear set. but i think i'll get the arrow exhaust first. having prob going up the mscp up slope.

 

maybe i dun have the right technique yet but my bike totally have no strength going up slope on first gear. sometimes i'll get stuck half way up the slope and the engine juz died. so a couple of sbf peeps says tt the exhaust will add in some pick up to the bike so i've decided to get the exhaust to avoid embarrassment when going up slope in mscp. haha!

I'm no expert but I've read (see this for example) that a new pipe will improve top-end power and sacrifice bottom-end, which would make it worse for you since you're looking for a better bottom-end to drag you up slopes. I had problems with slopes as well but am finding them less annoying now - for the most part, I remain in the clutch friction zone while going up slopes. If I feel/hear the bike struggling, I feather the clutch in and out and possibly add in some gas. That'll stop the engine from stalling as well. Seems to work well enough now.

Same way I do it, my bike responds well even when moving off a steep slope, keep the clutch in the biting zone. Never tried stock pipe before but I highly doubt thats your main problem

I Juz did tuning recently but still no responds for pick up. If changing exhaust doesnt helps w the pickup then I doubt I'll change already :/

You should learn abit if your carb. Read up more. The fuel and air ratio must be rite. As I mention before, I got a same problem before and ever after tune by mechanic, the problem still persist. Are You using still using the OEM carb?

Have you tried holding the clutch at it's biting and revving harder? Do not throw clutch or even release it slowly just hold it there. I had your problem until I figured that out myself

Wanted to mention that as well, the mechanic usually tunes them to a common ratio but bike to bike varies. Usually you have to fine tune it yourself.

I'm not sure. It's the stock carb. I guess I'll bring my bike to a mech who specially does our bike. I have to find this mech first. Haha! Meanwhile I'll try the technic u guys mention, holding on the biting point instead of slowly releasing.

 

Thks guys, really appreciate it.

Believe tuning has got to do with trial and error as well, diy yourself is best. There are some guidelines to tuning which you can find online as well.

Bro, to save your time. No mech will be specialized on your bike. They don't ride your bike. Only you know your bike the best! Thats only 2 screws you can play with.

 

If you are still using Stock carb, the bigger screw is to adjust the idling speed(which allow more or less air in). The another one, the smaller one, which you need to adjust using a screwdriver, that adjust the fuel in. Collect a screwdrive with you and adjust yourself. Do a 1/4 turn at a time.

 

Happy tuning!!!

i believe you meant 34mm.

 

its only a difference of 3-5litres. however, better mileage can be achieved through tuning.

With the current forum structure, I can't see this changing anytime soon. What we need is an Aprilia RS125 folder in which we have stickies on the usual n00b enquiries, and dedicated threads on specific topics, as opposed to a single thread for everything RS125 under the sun. If the forum itself lacks some form of organization, it can hardly be surprising that the posts lack organization.

 

The frustrations don't only lie with the seasoned posters, lacrimosae. N00bs like me are just as frustrated at not being able to extract the information they need without trawling through hundreds of posts from years ago, which are themselves just as disorganized and generally full of drivel as the ones being posted today. Having said that, I have no sympathy for the lazy n00b who does f-ck all searching or research before posting the usual trivial nonsense (I especially hate the question "how much will my insurance be" - FFS call the insurance agency and find out).

 

Excellent excellent post! I firmly agree with you mate.

 

It is fustrating for regular forumers to post the same thing over and over again. That's why usually I dont bother unless i feel like it. :)

BUt you bring up a very valid point. Stickies and dedicated threads to specific topics were something we had the the old ARC forum.

 

I'm more than willing to chip a nominal sum to get that forum running again. Let's see who else is interested.

Alot of confusion regarding the Arrow exhaust. Let me try to enlighten the masses.

 

Firstly, there are 2 different types. One with the carbon kevlar endcan, the other with the titanium endcan.(looks similar to 06 models onwards).

The belly/expansion chamber is the SAME!.

So powerwise there shld be minimal or no difference.

And both types can be used on all models of RS125. Doesnt matter what year. Same damn thing. I recently helped a friend secure the titanium endcan variant for his 02 model RS125.

 

Regarding legality issues, the Arrow exhaust is not deemed street legal unless you have the necessary cert, paperwork etc. from Biketec21(Arrow distributor in SG) and go for inspection. So even buying the exhaust online and fooling the TP who doesnt check your paperwork doesnt help if you go for inspection. You're dead there. Unless of course you bought a brandnew bike and dont have to go inspection for the 1st 3 years, the sap who buys the bike from you will suffer. In any case, everyday is not a sunday. So it's how lucky you are. Sure you get to save 300bucks atleast if you buy it online, but i rather pay and have a peace of mind. I'm riding the 98 model, yearly inspections are a must.

 

Lastly, the Arrow exhaust does improve performance especially top end. Bike will feel lighter, more powerful, better acceleration etc. But you dont enjoy these benefits if you go to a mech who knows nuts about tuning the RS125. It's not just about fiddling with the air/fuel ratio screw. It's about changing your main jets, pilot jets, needle position etc. Read up on this, and you'll be able to advise your mech on what you want.

 

I've been seeing alot of talk about tuning and lousy low end. A common fault that brand new bikes have is that the float in the 28mm carb spoils easily. This leads to alot of tuning issues. So ask your mech to check this out if you're riding a new bike. If it's spoil, go to Mah and get it replaced for free if you still have your warranty. The only 2 workshops i would recommend are 37 Motoring and Teck Thye. The rest of the popular workshops might be good for class2A, class2 bikes, but they know nuts about the RS125. So dont think that H*L, Racecrapz* or even M*h know your bike. They dont! Been there, seen the lousy work, ridden their pathetic attempts, and never ever even think of sending my own bike there. Simple as that.

      To stand out. Always
       
      Developed in close collaboration with Aprilia Racing, Dorsoduro was designed by taking the best features of sports bikes and supermotards, producing a perfect combination of performance, technology and fun. Power, lightness and agility, but also directionality, responsiveness and steering precision are therefore its main characteristics. Aprilia Dorsoduro has components, technical features and finish of the highest quality which contribute to the uniqueness of the project.
       
      Aprilia V90 four-stroke longitudinal 90° V-twin, DOHC, four valves per cylinder.
       
      Three performance modes, Sport, Touring and Rain, can be selected from a switch on the handlebars (with the throttle closed for safety reasons). The Dorsoduro changes its character radically, depending on what mode you select. Sport mode gives you aggressive instant power; Touring mode gives you a smoother action, better suited to relaxed long distance riding; and Rain mode gives you ultimate safety slippery surfaces. The Tri-Map electronic throttle also means smoother, more consistent power thanks to more accurate and precise throttle control based on parameters including engine speed, gear selection, air flow, throttle position and temperature.
       
      Whatever mapping you select, the engine is always ready to deliver the best possible performance in terms of acceleration and rev range, giving you an amazingly satisfying and entertaining ride.
      Super smooth v twin engine
      Never been to track.
       
      A 2nd hand duke 200cc cost about 10 to 12k, you can get this 750cc italian stallion with that kinda price. Also, hypermotard is everywhere and way too common. Be unique!
