not really.. When i trottle hard the jerking disappear.. Only when moving off stationary or moving up slope den it happens.. If it's a clutch slip how much will it take to repair?

Hi, it can also be the centre black plastic belt roller inside the transmission that is causing the jerking problem. I encounter similar situation previously on my Amalfi. During my belt change, I was told that the roller's bearing was damage and causing it not able to roll freely. After changing it, the jerking problem never happen again. Estimated cost is about S$40+ per roller. For clutch slip, there is quite a loud noise when u try moving off the bike. Maybe you want to observe your situation carefully to determine which is the exact cause of the problem. Hope this info helps.

Life is about the freedom of choice

how to know if these are faulty? what are the sign to look out for?

If you got a volt meter it should be able to tell you too.

 

As for water pump, you will realize the temp. suddenly heat up very fast and also there might be leaking mark at the water pump cover :sweat:

Dont use normal water from tap...This will rust yr radiator...Use onli battery water to top up...Im using engine ice...

 

Some coolant must mix with distill water but is easier if u buy those mix already, like castrol, engine ice etc...:smile:

In actual is distilled water :smile: And yes tap water will rust the radiator and it will cost you more $$$ to re-place :giddy:

oh... hmmm~ but normally how long will the coolant water last... say if i yesterday just filled up the whole coolant with the coolant water already... how long will it last? or it depends in how u ride one? sorry i'm noob in this... need enlightments... :cheeky:

It all depend to weather and where we always ride. If u often travel in traffic jam check it every 2-3 weeks will do :smile:

I'm riding a x9 almafi.. Recently i encounter a problem. When i move off from stationary with a low RPM, the bike seems to be jerking ( like when u release the clutch too much and trottle too little ). It is worse when pillion ppl or going upslope. Is it normal to be like this? But when i got the bike at first such problem doesn't exist. What could be wrong? Can experienced x9 riders pls advise?

Normally the original clutch will have 2 problem, Slip or Jerk. If i am not wrong, for your case, it will be even worst when you are with pillion in a jam :sweat: Your clutch need service :smile:

It seems that the resale value of the X9 evo has dropped to only 2.5K.

 

Many bros selling X9 huh ??

heh... even better, try asking around the shops how much they'll take in... your ears will bleed.

The radiator should cost about $150 - $200. DIY is difficult :sweat:
