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.....

If I could remember correctly, the sum goes like this

16L(full) - 2.5L(reserved)= 13.5L

The Digital Fuel Gauge will go blinking if you reached around 11L +.

So usually when the thing starts to blink, I(or we) will go on for around another 20km or so before top up. The top up will be around 12L +most of the time.

Hi fairus_50,

 

Like what 867K bro has mentioned, the reserve light will blink after 11l+ of petrol used up. Thus this make us has the urge to refuel cos we are afraid of pushing bike :cheeky: But in actually fact, still got abt 3l+ left. :cheeky: That's why we could only top up till 11l - 12l+ of petrol.

The IRCs fitted as OEM tyres on the Phantom 200 did not provide much grip in the wet... and have caused quite a many scares/falls for some of the Phantom riders.

 

So the reputation of the IRCs is a bit questionable... :sian:

Just got my SW 2 week+ ago, fitted with IRC, but they are made in Japan, so construction/materials might be different from those on Phan 200 (Supposing the IRCs fitted on it is Thai made).

 

So far the handling and road holding capabilities on dry and wet is pretty good.

Still running in the bike :faint:

Do take care when trying your top.

Better take extra care cos IRC is famous for skidding during rainy days. :smile:

Any Silver Wingers here change their rear shocks? :confused:

I think the price for the OEM rear suspension is not cheap, as for thefront wind shield cost $300 plus, what do you think of the rear suspension, dare not think of the price.

 

ANy bros change the air filter to K & N ? where to get cheap lobang as i search, they sell at $95.00
