Maybe he turn on his high beam?

Low beam 1 side high beam 1 side = double headlight?

Im not anywhere near an expert on bike but tis is my 1st thought

Never. I think you better feedback to dealer before warranty run out.

All SW comes with single headlight on. The other being the high beam.

 

Some riders modify the connections to H4 thus can have both headlight on.

Would like to check with other SW owner whether they install front and back cameras on their SW. Whether they have any recommendation?

 

Just buy from carousell and go to boss chong @AC Motors to arrange for installation. I have mine installed by him nicely.

Hi, I'm the seller of the FJS400D ... yes, its me... painfully decided to let it find a new owner :pity:

 

Bike is superbly maintained for my own safety "if-n-when" I am able to find time to ride... previously was like once a week, then became once a month, now hardly got time due to family commitments; originally intended to keep as hobby bike but my baby needed more time from me.

 

Bike model: FJS400D ... not PI bike but no diff by now

Original Registration: 25 Jan 2008

COE till: 10 years means 24 Jan 2018 ... 11 months to go

COE renewable? Yes

Road Tax: Valid till 24 Jul 2017

Colour: Metallic Silver (original paintwork bodykit, not respray)

 

Bike Condition: Very well maintained

. Stock parts used except K&N air filter, Lithium battery

. Headlight protector cover (you can't find this in the market anymore)

. RAM mount for phone/GPS at left handlebar (2 balls) and center steering cover (1 ball)

. LED light strip in under-seat storage compartment

. Givi Maxia E52 with working LED brake lights

. Givi original Maxia metal baseplate (not the plastic one)

. Enhanced seats for extra comfort

. IU inside right glove compartment

. There's a scratch at front wheel fender cover (caused by other bikers rear no. plate), can put sticker over it

 

Recently changed at K&T (run less than 90 km)

. Both tyres (Diablo Scoot)

. Steering cone

. Front fork oil & seal

. Front brake disc & pads

. Service front brake assembly (change pistons/ring/oil)

. Left brake pump kit

. Brake oil

. Front wheel bearings

. Rear wheel special bearings

. 3-in-1 transmission set

. Change engine & final transmission oil (Maxima full synthetic)

. Engine coolant (Engine Ice)

. Service rear clutch assembly

. Service K&N air filter

. OSRAM night breaker bulbs (low & high beams)

 

So you see, this bike is in superb condition, most (if not all) wear-n-tear items already changed for safety.

Regular Workshop: mostly K&T Assessory (Ubi), AC Motor (Kaki Bukit)

... you may wanna continue servicing at these shops for continuity

 

Price? $4.8K for quick deal.

Buyer pays transfer and admin fees (if any).

Please Whatsapp/SMS me to discuss.

Will consider all sincere offers but gotta be better than what motortiam has already offered me.

BTW, I have a Givi 214DT windshield (didn't get to use it) letting go separately at $140.

Front should be 29psi or 200kpa only mah.

At this pressure, the feelings at your palm would be just nice as it would cushion the roughness of the road.

 

Could it be the fork too soft instead?

Check for leaks (oil or air) because the fork would compress too easily.

Otherwise, change to a 15W fork oil (not higher).

Wait for a while. COE still very high.

Bike shops predict it will lasts half a year until Mah Motor finished up all their 200+ old COE and the market will stabilises.

With high ARF hopefully the COE price would come down a bit. Maybe more worth it to renew COE.

Depending on how much time you have left, waiting for COE prices to drop may not work out for everyone. For renewal of COE, owner pays a Prevailing Quota Premium (PQP). It's the average of the COE for past 3 months. I managed to renew the COE for my SW at $6.3k mid March.

 

Bear in mind that the average of 3 months means the high COE prices of the last month has to fall away from the calculation for the PQP when you renew. That would be at least four months away and it's assuming COE prices do not continue to climb. If time is on your side, you can wait it out but otherwise, it's perhaps more prudent to bite the bullet.
