There should be a V indicator on your dashboard. It right beside the High beam indicator.

 

When that light up and stay there thru out then its time to visit your motorshop.

Thanks Bros for the advices...

 

Btw, what does V means ?? change belt ???

 

Anyone put a extra on/off switch for the main headlight beam?

i have a question, but maybe still too early to ask cos of ur guys bikes mileage are still new & low.

 

Cos silverwing is a twin cylinder engine similar like a bike. Have u guys done the recommended periodic valve clearance & timing adjustment at 40,000km yet?

 

Cos it can't run forever without maintenance bah i guess. The engine will be quite noisy similar to big bikes

 

I hope i dun get fook again for posing this question :sian:

 

This is the twin cylinder horizontal mount engine of the tmax. Engine same as conventional bikes liao.

:smile: which is y i think this kinda job gotta find a skillful bike mechanic liao. If cockup sibei jialiat :giddy:

 

Maybe u can go back to those major scoot shop cos urs is a single cylinder & still a scooter. Should be no problem bah :confused:

 

Maybe u can go to this interesting site HOW STUFF WORKS to have a read. The valves, camshaft, tensioner....(etc) also need servicing cos it can't run forever. Unless u wana sell off ur bikey soon then can dun bother.

 

Hope nobody come in fook me for this boring topic :sian:

It not that nobody here is interested in the periodic valve clearance ba, like u mentioned, most of us recently join this cafe and are new to this stuff. :sweat:

 

I saw this valve clearance thing on our SW manual mentioning only inspect after 24000KM. As for "how to do it", it is not mentioned in manual. Since u have bought it up, I think is time to take a look and find out more.

Hi All SW members,

 

I am a newbie here, just trade in my X9 to exchange for japan model sliverwing 400 ( second hand, grey. bike is about 3 years old.

 

As the bike do not have any tools, and manual ( just downloaded from the tech corner, but all in jap)

 

Any bros have english version ? and some important question to ask fellow bro here ?

 

1.) What is the tyre pressure ( F/R ) in kpa ?

2.) I need the spare parts for the chrome exhaust cover and windscreen, call up and they say don't have.. roughly how much is the items ?? cos mine got hugh scratches.

3.) Any things to look out for regarding this 3 year old bike ? i.e. belts, servicing intervals and recommended bike shop which will not chop our heads ??

 

Thanks a lot fellow bros.

 

:cheer:

Hi BRO..May I Know How Much You Get Traded In Your Bike..? How Much Is Your Silverwing..?How Many Km Your Silverwing Already Clock..?

:confused: wah! so fast at 24,000km ah, i think no need so fast bah, my manual is at 40,000km. U will noe when the time comes cos ur engine noise will be different. Since urs is new, maybe u can take note or remember the sound. When mileage gets nearer, listen again. But ur mileage is still long way to go to worry.

 

But again mechanics will be very reluntant to do it for several reasons.

So u gotta find out whether ur regular scoot mechanic can do the job or not. Or u might wana bring it to a motorcycle mechanic, cos this kinda maintenance commonly done on motorcycles engines. So i guess should be more familiar bah

 

Hope more people can contribute or share to this topic.

But if too boring subject then i dun post anymore liao. Risk kena fa rk again :sian:

planning for a wing soon which is more popular for swing? the JDM or euro ones?

You can't get JDM model brand new for 400cc. Only Euro model is available.
