[Discussion] General Queries From Newbies

hmmm... I shall try esso's pump in the future... yea I frequent caltex... the pump is so easy to use (errr... only front tyre...)

 

the sidebox isn't in the way... oh well... either way I just pumped the tyre at planet, so its ok for now :cheeky:

 

esso's pump, shells's pump, spc's pump, all same wat.

 

only caltex pump is using hose straight to the valve.

 

And if i nv remember wrongly, rear tyre valve is about horizontal position + - a bit.

Question here: bike inspection.

My inspection will in expire in August 27. If I go to inspect now in July, will they put today's date on the inspection sheet? That means, next year, i need inspection in July?

Or they will keep the same August 27 on the sheet, whenever you get inspection within the 3 months?:sian:

TA200 now.

Dear TS,

 

Would you elaborate the above mention query is for which bike?

TA150 or 200?

&, one advice: "Cheap may not be good; Good may not be cheap."

Adivsable to dropby Planet for a diagnose also.

just a noob question,

when i pump petrol, do i need to put it to reserve so the reserve tank is also filled?

hahahaha. sorry. very nooob.

 

hahaha , i wondered the same question when i first started out too !

 

There is no difference , as the whole fuel tank is just 1 tank , "reserve" is just a fancy name for saying the tank is only left with 2+L .... but its a good habit to always put back to "ON" after refuelling so you will know when you are running out of fuel again.

hey, there is no such thing as a noob question as long as it is serious... everyone was a "noob" once :cheeky:

 

yea zhi ming said it... the valve doesn't affect the fuel capacity...

 

here is a very important tip regarding reserve "tank" :

 

learn to calculate your fuel consumption (FC), as sometimes continuous riding can actually drink petrol from the reserve portion despite that the reserve is not activated yet... it happened to me once... and obviously... resulted in a dreadful push to the nearest petrol station... :weep:

 

moral of the story... dun rely too heavily on your reserve valve! :cheers:
