Yap. More Kiasu ma..:cheeky:

 

Will be doing the last engine oil run in change around 2200km.

 

Then later at 3000Km, will be another engine oil change to my preference. After that, I will start the normal maintenance and resume my normal riding habit.

wat is the difference if the idling is set to 1000prm? :confused:

I didn't notice of any differences after adjustment. Just that the exhuast sound lower and slower.

 

But in the morning, still the same lor. Warming up, rpm will shoot close to 2k if weather is cold but normally in the morning will be at 1.5k and slowly drop till the 1k adjustment i had done lor.

 

So I asume it is quite alright even adjust to rpm 1k ba.

FC will greatly depend on the road you used.

If 90% of your ride is normal road(city), the chances of 240km/12l is very common.

If 90% of it is expressway then you will hit 260-280/12l.

I have tested it myself.

I think it is due to the dragging of the move off(pick-up). My theory is, if you can improve on the pick-up then maybe the FC will improve for city condition.

Mine is 50% highway and 50% normal road. Will hit 250 - 280km when the reserve light blink. And refuelling of abt 11.5 - 12.2l.

 

Nowadays, i try to move off slow and smoothly and pick up abit after that, then will only "zoom" when require. :smile:

 

Maybe you guys like to try move off this way.

 

Silverwing is slower when begining at moving off, so no point waste the petrol while moving off.

Think I read somewhere the original Silverwing 600 has a 'special' program to restrict the power when moving off electronically... supposedly to prevent newbie riders from launching themselves down the road.

 

Maybe that's why the Silverwing is a bit sluggish off the line?

Even the smallest spark can start a massive forest fire...

I was hoping with the adjustment can lower the fuel consumption and doesn't make the engine work that hard while idling. But I'm worried with lower rpm, moving off makes the engine works harder and thus stressing it more.

 

So its a bit of dilemma then :confused:

I notice that too. the weight of it I guess makes it harder to propel faster when moving off but mid range speed is fairly good :smile:

Havn't got the chance to whack the throttle while moving off yet, but will try to see if there is a power restriction. Give me a few more days and I will post the outcome :smile:

Tried yesterday, hard throttle when move off junction, a lot of vibrations from the engine to the handlebar, but the pick up is slow, so fellow bros, do not hard throttle at cross junction in order turn right, especially when opposite direction vehicle approaching, dangerous siah. happen to me yesterday.

I'm just considering a new SW. Not sure of the price diff between 400cc & 600cc. Called Boon Siew. They dun hv 600cc. Have not tried asking Mah.

 

Update: Just called Mah

Machine prices are as follows:

400cc - $10,400

600cc - $13,000

600cc (ABS) - $13,800

Why are people who ride motorcycles called bikers and people who ride bikes called cyclists?

One Euro rider hit his at 171km/h with some down slope help at NS highway. :smile:

Hi guys, i'm currently riding a super4 and very much interested in SW due to its storage capacity.

 

my current ride can get me about 320 on 16l of fuel and the fuel tank capacity is 18l, meaning tat it can probably go another 40km till it dries out.

 

my ques is, why do SW riders top up at 270 km/12.8l when a SW fuel tank capacity has 16l, meaning there should be at least another 3l of fuel to burn?

270km/12.8l = 21km

21km x 16l = 336km

 

For a 400cc bike, I think the fuel consmption is reasonable.....
