LOL!..yes, definitely different and works great. Not sure about the one with Rewitec if it can be added as premixed to fuel but the one I have can. It aid faster to top cyclinder wall coating. Eo change extended over to 6 times over. :thumb:

do this first

 

Start the engine early in the morning and touch all the four exhaust pipes coming out of the engine .Are all 4 of the pipes hot??? or maybe one of them not hot??? then change the spark plug for the one that the exhaust pipe is not hot.

 

as i too encountered this before. change out the spolit plug then monitor again.

s4 seldom need to do tuning.

i ride for 3 yrs tune still running fine.

With Rewitec Nano..it's similar too and eo interval is way extended too. Can always check their advertisment for more details.

cool can i know more about the product??

 

It's a Biochemical lube product using Nano technology and a 5 in 1 product as far as it's use for...1) Engine sysytem, 2) Automatic Transmission system, 3) Differentials/Transfer Case System, 4) Power Steering system & 5) Fuel system. Its from USA.

 

It provides a thin composite metal coating as a composite polymer film and for impregnating self-lubricating parts. Only metal and metal surfaces that moves against each other are effected by it. Non flammable provide and non toxic..accidentally swallow also won't die...LOL!

 

In summary, it protects and rebuild metal surfaces for compression gain and provide better lubrication. Premixed with the right blend of eo, its great for older bikes.

how much does the treatment cost ? need to find out in detail wad is it all about ..

 

Rewitec has a range of nano coating products for different engine displacement size. For example a super 4 which is 400cc will only require one M1 because it is catered to up to 750cc. For larger displacement bikes like an r1 you can opt to use 2 M1 or get the M2. The Rewitec Nanocoating works individually and does not change the oil characteristic and is free of additives like Ceramics or Telfon. Basically what I am trying to derive at is that Rewitec is not an additive to your engine oil. How it works is that the Rewitec coating concentrate builds a metal silicate layer on the rubbing metal surfaces which enables the coating to restore worn surfaces. The coating process takes place when there is grinding which will produce the metal silicate surface. The metal silicate will than bond with metal when there is frictional energy which is basically heat.Rewitec comes in a gel like form which you need to premix with 40 ml of fresh engine oil of any made and then add in to your bike's engine oil.

hello my friend,

well it cost $180 with installation of Rewitec treatment.

for more info please refer to:

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6057973#post6057973

 

yeah tell more of how this treatment is gone bout doing it

 

treatment is easy. just mix it with your engine oil and let wonders work =D

for more info you can refer to:

well to my knowledge,

Riwitec can't be added as a premix to fuel or anything else as it's not a premix solution.

it is to be applied into your engine oil for treatment. ( Note! even if it's mixed to your EO, it's like oil and water. 2 different things )

i think it's mixed with the Engine Oil mainly because:

In the crankcase of a vehicle engine, motor oil lubricates rotating or sliding surfaces between the crankshaft journal bearings (main bearings and big-end bearings), and rods connecting the pistons to the crankshaft.

for more info please visit:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_oil

 

wahhhh.. 6TIMES???!! so much.. and so much more than wat x1r can do.. wat.. like tat isnt like almost can 3 yr don change eo?? approx 30k km?? woo..

 

with Rewitec it's 1 x treatment that can last up to 100 000 km which means you practically only need to invest once unless you plan to keep your bike for many many years.

 

well at the end of the day it's up for individuals to choose la

if you want to know more just view:

Yes..I'm very much aware of Rewitec product a long time ago since it was advertise here. Because of its price, I have to look for an option at a cheaper cost but with the same benefits. The one I uses is only $48 and the result is great!

 

As far as ratio for premixes with eo are concern, this depend very much of how individual company have their product created..like the one you use is 400cc for 3 litre eo engine and packaging is for up to a 750cc. The one I use can be flexibly premix for just the ratio to eo and in this case, its 30 ml to 40 ml for a 3 litre engine. Moreover, 10 ml can be added to the fuel tank to treat the upper cyclinder for quicker result as it's injected into the clyclinder wall when the bike starts. As this is a 5 in 1 not like what you uses, the ratio uses to other parts varies.

 

There are more product like this when you search the internet than just Rewitec and what I using that uses Nano technology...all does the same thing..as long as it does not use 'particles' such as telfon, graphite, molybdenum or PTFE it should be a 'safe' product to use in wet mesh clutch engine.

 

I don't quite understand why is it that it claim "not an additive"..enlighten me if you can. In definition and from what I see, this products is use in liquidise form..and it's something added to enhance or characterized or produced by addition is already define as an additive. Moreover, as this is an add on as a standalone product to what's already mandatory like eo, it should be an additive..unless if it comes blended with the manufacturer and unknowingly to user but identify as what it contained..ppl never think of the word additive. One example is "ROAR RS"..a fully sync premium eo product with Nano in it that does the same thing we both use. Check it out at http://www.alibaba.com/member/sg104133433.html

 

IMHO...all the best additive that it can provide for the performance of your machine, we have to consider too, the status (like new or old) of the machine and how well it works "overall" and the grade of eo use is of "priority". Use the best additive in the world and blend it with a lousy eo, its Lan-Pa-Par_Lan!

 

If you really want to know more as to what is only available in Singapore to play with "luid engineering"..go to http://www.alibaba.com/ . Do a search under "lubricant" and you be surprised as how much option there are on the market. Have fun :0)

It is a must to tune S4 carbs as time goes by, the timing will ran out of tune. fuel and air mixture too rich or too lean at all the 4 carbs. All the 4 carbs must be running at the right fuel/air mixtures to run properly and smoothly.

 

hi bro, so when and how should we know the carb need to tune?

thanks in advance!:)

Hey all,

 

A couple of years ago I owned a CB400SF and sold it to get a larger bike.. I went through a Honda CBR600F, Yamaha R6 and Kawasaki Vulcan 500. Well, I came back to the CB400 - it seems the best bike for living in Korea! :)

 

One thing about my new bike - it has quite a bit of rusting inside the fuel tank. The bike shop I bought it from said it shouldn't be a problem as they put some of magnets inside.

Does anyone know what size the fuel line from the petcock is? I want to put a fuel filter on there... but not sure what size to get! I'm hoping someone on here can tell me so I don't have to take the tank off the bike to check.

 

Happy to be a Honda rider again ^^

 

Here's a quick photo.. it was imported from Japan a year ago, mid-90's bike but the engine still runs very smoothly - 21,000km on the clock.

You will know it when you ride your bike , the bike is not running smoothly , mileage become worse, bike got no power etc. It will depend on bike to bike. As you know, all bikes come out of the factories running lean most of the time to pass emmission test, so if you want better power, the next thing to do is to change the jetting.(Dynojet etc) and the shop will need to fine tune the jetting for your bike to run smoothly.

well said:thumb::thumb: didn't know there were so many things out there.

well, what i have mentioned was just based on my own understanding from

the product thread & explanation done by the person who did it for me

when i seek for the Riwitec treatment.

will try other products on my other bike to see which is better. =D

yeah i got a shock too when i saw the price now

cos i did mine quite sometime ago..

and it was around $120

way before this person started a thread here.

 

so far so good for me la still can feel those effects

like what they mentioned until now.

Just for conversation and its all IMHO.

 

We all have to understand too that if a product claims what it can and how good it is and for how long it can perform and provide, we too have to consider CAREFULLY...

 

1) Value for money

2) other stuff that it have to work with.

Ref to item (1)

There are other product that provides protection an dperformance though not in coating metal as to rebuild their metal surfaces..for example X-1R, Power-Up..etc. They can be combined with just anything..and very afforable. what I want to say here is that, why spend so much more with other feature of an additive benefits that cost so much more? Like for improve FC and long eo change intervals? Without that extra $$s spend on additive but on petrol instead, much more mileage be clocked (look at it as 'xtra good FC' )and it's worth it with just engine protection.

For example, if I use something like X-1R and a cheaper Nano product that provides coating to worn metal surfaces and gain compression at a lower cost, I get to have better FC and protection in return and yet xtra $$s to spare for that much more extra mileage. Moreover..read item 2 which goes hand in hand...

(2)

We have to consider carefully too the claim of mileage that the added stuff provided.

Say, product X claims that it can provide up to 70k without oil change (save lots of $$$s) with all the advantages of better performance, protection..etc. Now my question is this.."if its true that the product can live up to 70k..but what about the eo used, the mandatory stuff that it has to work with?..can it last till 70km?" As we all understand..there are limits to all eo provision and its purpose, the harder you ride or longer we use it, heat are always produce and the one that breaks down its lubrication properties and vicosity. Regardless of how the added on stuff works and provide and last up to its claim mileage useage, its riding on a dead horse. The eo is out of "commission" at 20k or 30k.

 

Whatever solution one has, IMHO, I guess it best to choose a better eo, how to improve it first and the rest is for enhancement to what the eo can't do. Also to consider what works together without damaging your machine making holes in the pocket.

 

We have to look at all these and come to a compromised.

 

There are plenty of this product out there, competition is good (cuts down $s and monopoly in our favour), takes time and trouble and sometime $s in experiment..but at end of the day when the right stuff is in our engine, we all be happy riders.:angel:

Is there actually a diff?

other than price .. its seem MW price it higher ..

 

some also say MW's one is better quality, ie: harder....

can anyone confirm?

 

I personally believe both is good as it uses Nano Technoloy (read about it before thinking that its a product..its not but more a process that enables manufacturer to use what they can't before..like creation of the iridium spark plug ).

 

Its not higher in price, it's much higher!

 

Nobody can tell which is better unless one uses both (have to wait till 100k) The one I'm using is up to 30k but not limited to. But take NOTE here..can your eo last that long? When one claims the other is better, certainly would like to hear from them in an apple to apple comparison.

 

I can't comment on the other as I have not use it, believe it is good!..because of pricing difference, I opt for the others. The one I uses is more affordable. It is also Nano and rebuild the worn metal surfaces and compression gain is felt.

 

With the price at $48, even if I have to change at shorter interval (30k), I feel more comfortable with new eo and a new Nano..the price x2 no doubt..but still half cheaper..compare with that's, I can have four changes :angel:

i gt noob ques... the eo gets black bcos of the carbon..imagine 3 or 4k nia, the eo so black liao... so if it realli last more than 10k km, isnt eo full of carbon?? can ah pek or anyone gen enlighten me??

 

btw ah pek... i am wondering how much ml of nano did u add in eo? cos im thinking of adding now =P... realli cant wait till the eo expire!!!!! LOL

The color of the eo does not determine on whether or not the oil is suitable for continued use or if it should be replaced. It is a common misunderstanding that it's dirty and gone bad, thus it means that the color of the eo does not have any say and affect lubrication capability. Most important is always follow the recommended change interval as recommended by the manufacturer. But if you are using two different things like eo at 10km and nano at 30k..yyou have to do something about the eo.

 

Most brand of eo turns very dark brown to black in operation. This is because of contaminates generated by combustion process and soot particles.

 

Good eo is dependent on the quality of the oil, type of fuel (disel makes the eo very black), engine status condition, operating environment, how you use your engine and filtration.

 

With regards to use of Nano and its ratio mixtures, it varies. Some manufacturer would tell you to use the whole bottle for so much off cc engine not stating the premix ratio or others do and some by the litres of eo use. The one I have from USA recommended a ratio of 100:1-1.5..meaning 1litre to 10ml or 15ml of their nano mixed. However do reamember that sligthly less is always better than slightly more but staying with the recommended is the safest.

 

I suggest you wait till your eo expire lah and have it all new..why so kang_chiong...sooner or later, you get your Nano...for now, make your money worth from the last change.

thanks for the explanation ah pek... mayb i should phrase it another way.. i refer to carbon deposition... cos wif the anti friction, the eo life is extended.. so isnt it more and more carbon build up ?something like if a human is placed in a room without air ventilation, slowly co2 will build up till it is very difficult for human to breath(pls don kill me for asking this noob ques)

 

haha.. ah pek ur nano is like magnet keep attracting me... so i was thinking of adding into my current eo ma..heheeh...

      Hi all, sorry if I posted in the wrong forum category.

      I am relatively new rider, and my bike's COE ends in May. The bike is eligible for the $3500 NEA rebate as well.
      As I have never done it before, can someone guide me through the process? Also, are there any specific important things to look out for
      in case I get cheated or get into trouble etc. 

      Thanks!

      The Honda ADV150 has a built-in power cut in the stock ECU.
      Most ADV150 riders would have experience this power cut when approaching speeds of 110km/h-120km/h shown on the speedometer.
      This is entirely normal as is what is referred to as a speed / power cut to protect the engine and the other components of the ADV150 as a Class 2B scooter is not made to go much faster than that.
      There is a workaround to this power cut (if so you wish) and that would be changing to an aftermarket ECU that does not have this built-in power cut.
      If you want to remove this power cut, it will void your original manufacturer warranty is is highly NOT recommended, it is also unsafe for the motorcycle and the rider.

      Looks pretty good, probably will look even better on the white version!

      Thanks to bro Fadli for the picture. Took him a lot of time, elbow grease as well as thinner to remove all the stickers.
      Has anyone else tried this one their ADV150? Looking forward to seeing a white unit that has its decals removed.

      Honda gives its CB1000R naked some love for 2021 with a sophisticated blacked-out look and a few choice upgrades. The bike will be available this May starting at S$TBC. Although it will be available to dealers in May, it doesn't mean you will be able to get one in May however. We must apologise in advance as we understand from Boon Siew Honda that they will not be bringing in the Black Edition of the Honda CB1000R until the current 2020 models have been sold out - and who knows how long that would take!

      The new styling gives the machine its 2021 moniker, the CB1000R Black Edition, and touches just about every visible part of the bike. Honda used black plating and black anodizing techniques on the subframe, swingarm pivot plates, exhaust system, front suspension, and handlebar clamp among numerous other places.

      In addition to the bold new colorway, the CB1000R gets a new three-level quickshifter for clutchless upshifts. A slip/assist clutch smooths out wheel hop on hard downshifts.
      Honda fitted a new 5-inch TFT instrument panel to the bike also.

      The CB1000R Black Edition is powered by a 998cc inline-four fit with ride-by-wire and four ride modes. Honda Selectable Torque Control is included to help dial performance in a variety of conditions. It utilizes a steel backbone frame suspended by a Showa SFF Big Piston fork, fully adjustable, and a Showa shock with spring preload and rebound damping adjustability. Four-piston radial-mount calipers grip two full-floating 310mm discs at the front while a single-piston caliper and 256mm disc handle braking duties at the back.

      Honda utilizes LED lighting throughout, highlighted by a classic round headlight that emphasizes the brand’s Neo-Sports Café aesthetic, of which the CB1000R is a hallmark example. Other premium design features include a flangeless fuel tank, aluminum alloy detailing, a new rear splash guard that mounts directly to the swingarm, and a passenger seat cover.

      The only available colorway for 2021 will be, you guessed it, Graphite Black.

      Honda is all set to launch the made-in-India Honda CB350 motorcycle in Japan and other Asian markets as the Honda GB350 Basic Roadster.
      Honda has managed to surprise enthusiasts by launching a India-manufactured premium retro-styled motorcycle late last year as most of its core line of motorcycles are manufactured in Japan. The new Honda GB350 has found lots of takers despite limited availability thanks to its retro classic looks, a crispy exhaust thump and more importantly a powerful performance. Could riders actually be looking towards more no-frills motorcycles that are at the lower end of the pricing spectrum?

      Now, the Japanese manufacturer is planning to launch this bike in other markets around Asia very soon. According to a Japanese magazine, Honda will launch the classic roadster in Japan first and rechristened it as GB350. Made in India – Exported to Japan, Honda has already showcased the motorcycle in Japan and we expect it to be making its rounds to other Asia markets in the near future.
      The GB350 when launched, is already BS6 compliant which is equivalent to Euro 5 emission norms. This is good news as all new motorcycles coming into Singapore would need to adhere to Euro 5 emissions or risk not being able to be on the roads after a few years (remember the NEA debacle?). Hence, Honda wouldn’t have to invest further to upgrade the engine’s emission standards. It is also equipped with ABS as standard in its based model spec, which is very helpful as this is a powerful Class 2A bike that would need up-to-par stopping power. It is highly likely that the Japan-spec GB350 will be the model that is exported overseas.

      While earlier reports indicated that in Japan, the GB350 will cost around JPY 550,000 to JPY 600,000, the latest reports suggest that it would cost around JPY 499,000 instead, which comes in at a lower price than initially expected. Exact prices will be announced soon, once it is launched, and the price is Singapore is dependent on many factors such as COE and road taxes so we'll just have to wait for the official word from Boon Siew Honda.

      The bike is launched as a challenge to Royal Enfield’s 350cc retro segment which currently holds a significant market share is various other countries and could also be why Honda has launched this GB350 as a direct competitor. Also similar to the Royal Enfield, the GB350 comes equipped sparingly and does not even have a digital dash like most motorcycles from 2021 but instead just has a simple analog gauge.

      Initial sales numbers of the GB350 are promising, and it has the potential to disrupt Royal Enfield’s monopoly. Coming to its powertrain, it is powered by a 348cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which generates 21 bhp at 5500 rpm and a peak torque of 30 Nm at 3000 rpm. Hardware equipped will also remain similar to the Japanese model which consists of telescopic forks at front and dual shock absorbers at rear. Anchorage duties will be handled by disc brakes on both ends.
      What do you think of the Honda GB350? Do you think there is a market within Singapore for a no-frills retro roadster motorcycle? Let us know in the comments section below!
      P.S. Boon Siew please bring this Honda GB350 into Singapore!
