hey bros. I'm wondering is there any form of storage for the drz?

 

like for sports bike like cbr400 there's a small under seat storage whr one can keep their rain gear and stuffs.

 

if there's no storage, how you guys bring ard your rain gear, coupons and necessary docs without installing a box?

 

thanks for your help bros!! (:

 

This one Im also wondering! :?

 

Cos I took out my ''tool pouch'' and then realise how much of a benefit it would be to just have it on. o_O:faint:

Even my 3 year old Vapor had condensation, just realised after parking under rain yesterday..

I think it's time to change to Vapor Stealth..

Quite hard to understand what you are trying to say in the last few sentences.

 

Its the link plates that are rusting. I just use a towel cloth soaked with engine oil and rub off the rust.

 

You need to use proper chain lube for the links of the chain. Please don't be like those Ah Beng shops which like to apply engine oil to the drive chain as chain lube. All you get is oil that gets flung all over the spokes and rim and under tray.

 

Drive chains that are not lubed with the proper chain lube will end up getting kinked and damaging the sprockets.

 

Its really cheaper to spend some money on a good chain lube than to replace the chain and sprockets as set.

Marchesini rims I got them from Motoworld thru Unique Motorsports.. Price wise is worth what you are paying for.. Read my FAQ for more info on tyres and rims..

 

The integrated fender and headlight mask was imported..

No shops are selling in SG..

I'm selling my set at Garage Sales.. Let me know if you want it..

I believe wat you're referring to is a product called Scott-oiler or Ezzy-oiler...

 

They will clean/lubricate your chain as u move...

 

Hope it this would clear the fog that ur flying in, raptor...

 

Happy CNY GUYS....

IMHO..the chain oiler thingy is only for lazy people who don't know how to do simple maintenance on their own bikes.

 

How difficult is it to spray chain lube on the chain when it needs it?

 

Does not make sense to me to save the hassle of lubricating the chain but spent alot more time cleaning up the rims and spokes.

 

Totally illogical in my books.

i lubricate my chain, one link by one link..

 

jacked it up, cleaned it and spray chain lube one link by one link..

the hassle of going thru it's very worthwhile, it lubes your chain and maintained it in working tension for a longer period of time..

a good chain lube will not fling off during rides..

 

i also dun like my rims to be dirtied by oil..

furthermore, if the oils gets onto my tyres, I'm in for a jolly good ride when i corner left..

 

http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/garage.php?do=viewattachment&attachmentid=87666

my chain and rim after washing and lubing..

It's a almost 2years old chain, and i've only adjusted it 3-4times..

 

I clean my bike every fortnightly..

cleaning it frequently allows me to scrutinize and do checks on the serviceable parts..

you never know maybe your EO is leaking, chain retainer/clip had already flew away, or even your brake pads are already worn out..

 

as mentioned by Raptor, oilers are for lazy ppl which in the end spent more time cleaning their rims and spending more money when your tyre lose traction on a left corner because you fed it with oil..!

Try not to use aftermarket clutch plates. Get the OEM clutch plates.

 

Some aftermarket clutch plates tend to be thicker and will result in clutch grabbing and difficulty in gear shifts.

 

But... then again....its your money, your bike and your call.
