its not a spray, but just a liquid solution, with white in color, u take a paint brush and paint it over your rusty parts,

but its recommended to remove the rust scales with a brush first, then just paint over it, then wait 20 min then 2nd coat, then enough lah.. thats what the instruction says

 

 

if your living in the east , quite near to park way right? then just can go to the shop to get (if your exhaust is begining to rust lah)

ok thanks bro, noted. Then I will try it also lah... tonite no outing for you guys huh??

[results of the rust remover]

i got it form a DIY shop called 'Self Fix' at parkway parade, but im sure other shops they sell it too.

 

today i just applied it to the over the rusted pipe, (its quite very difficult to apply cos some part are so unreachable)

 

There is the pipe that connects to the engine block (that has a black protector, *i can't seem to open that one.. so cant apply it to that part*

 

Anyways , after applying , wait 20 min then apply 2nd coat, then u can see the entire rusty pipe has become all black.

 

Quite easy to apply,

Just that do not breathe in or touch the solution, as it can cause cancer, so im quite afraid to get in contact with it..

 

price i can see its $8.90

 

so far it works lah, ive even applied it to some rusty screw, seem to do a good job.

For the application of the solution, it will be best if ur can find a bendable brush. The first time I tried also very difficult to reach. Due to the bending of the exhaust and the guard and the frame of the bike.

Do not attempt to take out the exhaust pipe as it will extremely difficult to take out and put back.

For the guards, u can use a size 8 spanner to remove it but I'll recommend to attempt to unscrew after the pipe had cool down due to expansion of metal.

Dun spoil the thread of the screw. I already have one damaged screw thread.

Do not contact with the solution as the stain is also difficult to remove.

Caution: Wash immediately after contact.

If this rust remover is good, can forget about the one in Senoko. That one had not been tested yet.

i went to Eunos superbike i changed the following:

 

sproket n

o-ring chain

booster

 

the sprocket n chain comes in one set it cost me $110

the booster as usual $80

 

i dont really know the brand of sprocket but the o-ring chain is not DID. but it still works well its gold coloured o-ring chain n its kinda cheap.. heard the did o-ring would cost me another $50 more.

 

the booster just installed so cant really feedback

the installation is kinda hassle free except the tank needs to be removed for it to be installed.

 

go there early on weekdays they are not usually busy.

staff there are friendly n patient.

 

btw its behind paya lebar mrt its near singapore post. :D

juz wanna check with you guys, does your vara pistons sound slightly loud after a while? Maybe is time for me to change the engine oil already...

 

hey there heikal i heard u just bought ur bike at eunos superbike. its best that u change engine oil often as the bike is new. also at the period of time its best to use mineral oil.

 

if ur kiasu change it like so

100km

300km

500km

1000km

 

since the engine is new alot of friction would be created thus resulting in alot of debris in the engine. thus changing the engine oil n oil filter often in the period of time would result in a more cleaner engine.

 

after the run in period fully synt oil would be the best.

Simone, I cant remember how much is the air filter, but i dun think it is that expensive....I guess the air filter at BS is for the K&N air filter, which is reusable, thus explain its price tag...
