look abit short for S4...

 

May be need bracket for this.

 

i haven't buy... usually do research first before buying...

Ya,better invest a better Shock Absorber.

 

:cool: Ok...here is another image of my 10yrs 6mnth PB1...has never been polished since it was respray...but washed and then waxed. Talking about polishing...the very most 3 times a year because of thick faded wax. :sweat:

Oh "glisten"..meaning :

to reflect a sparkling light or a faint intermittent glow; shine lustrously in bright sun shine day.

 

Also...what I meant by "Chrome" is that steel normally done reflect like chrome which has a "wet look"..but don't know leh..the PB1 header looks very 'chromed' indeeed when poslish up nice and proper.

 

Ok here is the way I go about it...base on your image condition..I suggest

 

..you buy the finest sand paper (1200CW silicon carbide type and water proof 1 sheet is enough) and this is very common in any HDB hardware shop.

 

Wet the sand paper with water and put some "Jif" (use for cleaning kitchen dishes and utensile stuff) on it.

 

Gently (don't apply to much force..except for stubborn areas)'polished' all the heavy soiled tarnish header till you can see steel..not to worry if it looks 'sanded' or blur blur...just remember each time you keep doing it, the sand paper must be wet.

 

Once this is done and you see clean steel metal..that's it..dried the header with a clean cloth.

 

This is the best part...go get a bottle of "Meguiar's" NXT Generation all metal polish. The packing is a small impact plastic half height of a milk can and light green and dark blue in colours...it says on the label.."highest shine possible"..there you go. You can get it fron NTUC Hub in AMK Central at about $16.20 (on slae sometime at $13.20...that's when I grab them heee..x2!) or if you stay nearby Kallang Bahru, there is a workshop (service and modified scooters and cubs)near Glen Motor (same row two or three units away) that sells for $15.00.

 

Just apply this cream paste with a clean cloth and rub gentlly in cirvular motion first...than when shine shows, rub any way you want. One very IMPORTANT thing...while you are rubbing and the part in contact is black from residue of your header..don't change to cleaner cloth area...keep rubbing with the black area cloth..apply small thin amount of the paste on the cloth or header again if you want but keep using the black area. Once you are satisfied...just wipe the black streaks off the header and Voila!!!...'chrome' you see...may be not first time round la..but 3/4 chrome at least. Once you have set that standard..once every two weeks can lah.

 

Good luck and oh..caution though..don't get addicted to the smell of the paste..damn addictive..scent like "tutifruity chewing gumdrop" like that..I always like to smell smell some when on the job...heh...x2!

 

Wah AhPek, U alot of info. Hmm, I'm very buzy so dont tink ve time rite now. But thanks for sharing. Wil hope to make use of tis tips of urs.:thumb: :thumb:

Haha! I had the same thought before I reprayed my bike. The 50th anniversary red/white (or cream to some) is unique, but it looks dirty after some time. You won't regret givin' your babe a new coat of paint, trust me.

 

Yeah! Ah Pek's bike is freakin' chio. Oh the shine!

 

hahas. dun talk abt it bro. the red/cream paintwork. nv wash for a week, the cream'll look damn dull

I'd rather get a Leo Vince than a Louis Vuitton.

hi guys.. dunno if any of u experience this or not..

im riding a verS.. 1997 bike.. lately ever since my spark plug blow out on me.. i have this problem startin up my bike as if they is no spark/or electric output felt.. i tried to eliminate a few possible reasons..

 

- changed sparkplug - ows.

- wash airfilter.

- check batt - ok

- check rectifier - ok

- check cdi - ok.

- check jettin n tuning - ok ( wash carb n tuning done by unique)

- carbon starter less than a yr.

- wiring all checked. working fine.

 

did i miss out anythin.. magnetic coil? im freakin fed up wif d inconsistency of d bike startup ( sumtimes can start.. sumtimes cant) but at the same time i cant leave at bikeshop as d bike is my daily mode of transport. juz wanna hear if any bros out there got experience this before.. thanks.

Btw, Have u service ur rear suspension before? How much?

 

Yah...five years ago. The guy name is David and he is one of the oversea trained pioneer in refurbishing and repairing shock asorber. Forgot the name of his workshop but he is located at junction between Serangoon and start of Bradell road I think..there is a big koi pond inside his shop. Can find out the name again if you want. Cost me SGD300.00 for spring replacement, seal, internal damper housing cleaning, added spacer for spring, oil and nitrogen fill up. To date still going strong and guess it worth it all this while..almost 5+ years olehdee.

Stupid Hurts!.:giddy:Speed doesn't kill, mistakes does :faint:

Hmm, my one is getting too soft already. I was quote arnd $400/pair.... Mybe i'll try n see whether the shop u mention is stil arnd.

If the price is arnd $300 i'll go for it. Too bad nowadays i'm very buzy. No time to do the things i wan for the bike.:cry:

did i miss out anythin..

 

 

- changed sparkplug - ows....ok

- wash airfilter........not related to the problem

 

- check batt - ok...not related to the problem

 

- check rectifier - ok....ok

 

- check cdi - ok...not related..not related to problem

 

- check jettin n tuning - ok ...not related to problem

 

- carbon starter less than a yr...not related to problem

 

- wiring all checked. working fine.....MAYBE...not sure what wiring you referring to..the main hardness? There is a wire that is black and have a white strip on it. Its sorta "kill switch" wire. Happened to mine once. Bike just die or can't start sometime when handle is turn in either direction.

 

The problem may not be this particular wire..old bike like ours tend to have breakages or corroded wires internally inside their insulator..very hard to tracked..the worst being wire that is not broken but have very high resistance due to conductor corrosion. I had mine cut and rejoined at one time and the section of it is those at under the tank to where it runs to the headlamp.

 

The other possibility is that the pair of cable that runs from the plug to the step-up coil..one to cyclinder 1 & 3 and the other to cyclinder 2/4...or 1/4 and 2/3..whatever, check the one that had the blown spark plug. The cable attachment connection to the spak arrestor may be back or one them step-up coil is already half effective(likely the one that has blowup plug).

 

Please note that what I've said here is just possibility and may noy be the problem...good luck.

Heh Simley7...pretty slick pain work and about one year old. Be sure to waxed it now and then. Saw little red wire below...grounding eh?..did it yourself?..care to share how it's wired up? Grounding different earth potential is quite important.

Hh!???...who quoted that?...I read somewhere in the forum that skylab or bike lab is doing it only for $230.00 moreover they up your nitrogen gas psi somemore. Think its in one of the earlier thread about back suspenion.

:(

ver S, black header, cannot polish onil can wait for it to rust and spray back again, have to do it 2-3 weeks once

 

There are quite a few shops around that has PB1 headers lying around. May be can get Seng Kwan to do up the header. Not sure if affect performance or not as I believe version S is 4-2-1. If you think its worth all the paint can and effort and looks over the year to come keeeping the bike..Y not hor.:cool:

Is tat for a pair or one only? $230 is really cheap if for a pair. I wil try n survey other places. Nitrogen being use to service is very gud.

My fren used nitrogen for his tires also....

Talking about that...was thinking of one set with the canister assembly..errr..anyone of you here knows it can fit our non Vtec versions? Also..has anyone hear seen or heard about better Showa shock beside what we all having now? Thanks in advance.

Ok, sound like for a pair....found that thread and below is a snipped from what said...never been there and not sure how its done...very scare of no quality but cheap.

 

"for front fork service is $150 n we change both seals, clean out whole forks,check straightness of the tubes, polish fork tubes.

rear shock are $230 for both include new seals , oil, polish shafts, reshim, full clean up,higher nitrogen pressure :thumb:"

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I ve done grounding but gud to know if thr r better location for the grounding pts.

 

The reason I asked is because different evrsion or rather all different model of bikes have different points for grounding. All the talk about the number of grounding points are "How_Sao"!

 

Once I asked one supposing reputated workshop how much $$s and how is my bike grounding to be. He 'study study' like some grounding expert and brisky told me 4 points would do and caused around 45 bucks! When I requested that he showed me where the grounding points are..I jsut couldn't get the logic for it right. Of course I did not Kae_Kian lah...just mapodoe and act gong_gong and say I come back when I get the $$s.

 

Anyway..I doubt what they do is that effective. I have seen a Vtec III loop with 4 grounding wires (so call 4 points)from cyclinder head to lower crank case housing mounting and back to the top to form a loop..IMHO...that not what I think its all about for a better spark firing efficiency so that the engine feel smoother. again...I may be wrong...but I think I'm right leh...ha....x3!
