this website show u roughly how to re-establish the loose contact in the fuel gauge :)

 

u can try to DIY.

 

Hi, hi.

Just nioticed that my fuel guage deviates slowly by 1-2 steps every now and then, ie. when stop at traffic lights, it'll climb up steadily or might drop 1-2 steps when travelling.

Sometimes the reserve light will come on at 370km and sometimes just 345km... with the same petrol level refill and riding habit.

 

Any idea if the fuel guage can be cleaned or I've just kana a comon x9 headache and it can't be corrected (unless buy new guage)?

 

Advise?

Thanks Kenny...I'd check it out and let you know if its been sorted?

 

Kenny, just wanted to update you and the rest, the trip computer was stripped down, there was some water stains. It was blown dry and the problem so far has not resurfaced. Never really found the lose connection. guess it was just sensitive to water....

 

Hope the problem doesn't recurr....!!

 

Ride safe.

Hmm... realised after much observation that most X9 riders set their fork to very soft setting, ie. fork travel more than 60% of the length. Some even have it 75% (3/4).

Have been testing and replacing fork oil for many times. Below are my findings (based on my own riding preference on EVO 250):

 

1. Standard setting = 195ml +/- 3ml.

-->> Fork travel = 1/4 (30%) of the fork length. Slightly hard but.... BEST for cornering at any speed.

 

2. 160ml = fork travel about 50%.

Softer feel and still no dip during cornering.

 

3. 140ml to 150ml = fork travel past halfway (60%).

-->> Soft feel with a slight dip when cornering, resulting in wider cornering line.

 

4. 130ml and below.... I don't recommend actually cos got lots of dips/bounce at cornering (too soft).

 

For info.

What's your previous FC (for comparison)?

Mine's still minimum 29km/L or around 350km for 12L (2.5 yrs bike no Mod).

 

If your air filter, oil and sparkplug cleaned/changed regularly and still the FC is too high, then need to go shop and check liao:

Fuel guage faulty, carburetor dirty, engine valve clearance, fuel leakage, etc.

 

Go shops specialised in scoots.

Hi! Just wandering if you guys have any info on how do I get a duplicate key for my X9. The big red/brown key was lost and has only one left. I was told that it will require the whole immobilizer system to be replaced to get a new set of keys. Do you know anybody from Singapore who can have it duplicated without buying the whole system?

 

I am also in need of the X9 logo for the left rear side panel and a front signal light. Can you help where can I get those too?

 

Btw, I'm from Philippines and is planning to go to Singapore next month. Hope you can help me. TIA!
