hi guys , i brought my bike in to boon siew recently as there was this very apparent metallic scraping sound between 1k 2k revs between the 1st and 2nd gear. i believe the sound is there too at higher gears, its just that you cant hear it too well as its drowned out by the other noises when you ride. the mechanic took it in and came about 30 mins later telling me i had to change my sprockets and chain. they changed 3 components - 2 sprockets amounting to 227 and the chain drive amounting to 189 plus 45 bucks for labour.

 

the sound is gone and its all good now however when i told my colleague after coming in to work the next day, he said they over charged and a job like this would generally set someone back about 350. has anyone had this same issue before and if so what are the prices someone should actually pay for a job like this? i usually take my bike to them as well for the routine servicing packages and those run between 80 to 120 bucks . should i be looking elsewhere to service my bike in the future?

 

today i brought it in for its routine service (28k) , break down of charges are as follows. should i start looking for other bike shops or is the price quoted fairly reasonable.

 

labour - 30

idiimtsu fully synthetic engine oil - 75.2

filter - 27

washer - .9

total with gst 142.42

 

cb 400 revo (2012)

Anyone using Lim Ah Boy's cheapo main stand for CB400 Revo?

 

For such a low price, I'm not sure if it's usable. Technically, it's just a few pieces of metal welded together, but the price difference between this and the original is huge, so I'm somewhat skeptical. Anyone knows if it's any good?

Too expensive, man. I went to Unique Motorsports to change my EO and oil filter. Total around $75 net for Amsoil 10W-40 Fully Synthetic + ISON oil filter. No additional labour or parts cost. With or without oil filter is only $10 difference.

IMHO you're better of getting a brand new bike & brand new pipe.

no amount of money can provide you "peace-of-mind"

 

pros :

brand new never molested engine

0 mileage

no additional road tax add on

everything new

got warranty

 

cons :

engine most likely molested (if its a renew coe bike)

xxxx mileage

no warranty

road tax additional up to 150% (if its a renew coe bike)

 

 

its a no brainer actually..

looking for drz parts, any parts will do!

maybe u have an air leak in the area around ur carburator or air intake manifolds or vacuum hoses or vacuum caps?...try sprayin a can wd 40 around an area and listen to the motorcycle idle if there is any changes....and move to another area...

another probable reason could be a clogged air filter?

another probable reason could be one of your carburator diaphgram is worn out n cracked or dried and can cause a vacuum leak....or not fitted properly?

another probable reason is could be your needle jet...which is the tube looking thingie w holes in it...under your main jet....the holes could be clogged....need something plastic sharp and thin to clean the holes....

another probable reason is the o rings in your carburetor need changing....cheers

hope helps a bit....

I ride at 70km/hr only...please please dont blow2 at me or overtake me dangerously....wait i change into Incredible Hulk n dont know why my little baby bike will always be ahead of u if u do that

      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.
      2021 Honda CB1000R Black Edition Technical Specifications and Price
      Price: S$TBC Engine: 998cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled inline-four; 4 valves/cyl.

      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!
