hi guys thinking of getting a S4 version S for commuting and also my job requires me to meet clients... is it true that ver s has bette rFC than spec 1 due to lack of vtec?

 

any major problems i should look out for when viewing S4? since its an old bike i feel need to check coolant hose, fuel lines, radiator and wiring problems...

Cheap + fast = no good

Cheap + good = not fast

Good + fast = not cheap

What you heard is true. Version S has one of best fuel consumption in the superfour family. Although I'm using an aftermarket exhaust, I still manage to get 400km including reserves. This due to its nature of being a non-vtec bike, having all 16 valves open at all times.

 

Major problems to look out for is coolant leakage from the mid block, bloated coolant hose that can break anytime and engine oil leakage at the gaskets. Make sure the version S has front brembo calipers and showa shocks.

When I feel sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story. Hehe :thumb:

Anyway to check the radiator and coolant hoses visually or are these problems only discovered when go workshop? Hate getting bad surprise phone calls from my mechanic when he's servicing my bike.,, for the brake calipers also need to check make sure all are brembo and not brembo/nissin mix right?

 

For cosmetic mods like alien/led headlamp and spec 3 sharp tail won't pass inspection?

 

Thanks for the info!

Yours is Gazi i guess. The previous owners must have changed it or worse, the bikeshop must have sold it off. Anw, the main tank should be pointed towards the top while the reserve should be pointing towards the bottom.

Yes visually.. squeeze on your coolant hose to feel its bloatedness and texture. And try to touch your block, when it is cool, to see if there is any coolant leakages. AS for the radiator, you might wanna have to tap it to your battery to check if the fan is working. For coolant problems or more advanced explainations, you can approach a trusted friend of mine, @Ah Pek. He helped me solve my coolant issues. Hope this helps ;)

Anibody knows how much would a block cost' date=' cause my mid block coolant leakng liao...mine is ver r[/quote']

 

Leak from where and what comes out? Repair cost with a mid block part replace can cost up to min $850 anytime and this is 2nd hand with no warranty. New one at least $1,600. However can be saved using special type sealant coolant patch at much cheaper cost compared. Need help can pm me.

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

BEER!...it's cheaper than fuel now! DRINK!..DON'T RIDE!

my ver s after approx 15mins of normal riding will have its engine temp light on. funny thing is if i clutch in or keep below 3K rpm, light turn off. when i was at my carpark, i changed to neutral and rev above 7K and let it drop and true enough the light turns on and off immediately. my friend said most likely not enough coolant. which i checked later on and found out it seems on a pretty low level. going to the workshop to get it fix since my still under warranty tmr.

 

Question is: most likely this issue will be solved after i top up coolant right? something of a quick fix? cos i need the bike throughout the weekend. no need to flush the system or anything right?

You should check your regulator, that's what happen to me...The regulator spring plunger got rusted and stop working...causing a lot of problem...it can cause your engine to crack just like mine

Forget about ur weekend need...better have them do a proper flush and cleansing of rust or whatever b4 ur warranty is over..takes less than 45 mins rather than nightmares for months when ur bike has to seat in for weeks due to a crack block that gonna cost u $900 at least!..and 2nd one.

Throw away the thermostat! No need to use! haha. Actually, your preference la.

 

Heh bro..the Japanese don't give u the thermostat for nothing. For every bike they produce..there is one manufactured that cost them money..they are there for a reason otherwise, they could save themselves millions!..so, don't anyhowthrow arh...LOL!

U guys has to know that a mech is a mech and there are many type of mech that does bikes but they are not your "everything" to a bike solution sometime. I have come across many incidence that mechs just have to answer ur question or questions just to 'impress' as if they know about evrything. Of course some are better than others..so to say and what I mean is..do ur analaysis not just because he's a mech.
