Hello all, I'm looking for a decent mechanic to send my bike in for a service this Saturday. Any recommendations in the East side? I've tried the one most of you recommend but found him really slow. Left bike there at 11am for oil spark plug change. Called at 5pm still not started on it. Any other shops you guys use or recommend?

Morning all, I found clear oil leaking from the right side of my dragstar this morning, any ideas what the problem could be?

Looks like its coming from your oil filter mate.

Check your oil levels that they are not overfilled that causes the extra pressure.

Then check the seals.

Dear Dragstarian, I have something to ask.

 

Anyone rode the 400cc classic to KL b4? What is the average speed to go...120,140?

 

Any meet up session?

 

Im pretty sure the draggy will be capable of those speeds.

Hello everyone,

 

I recently made the typical transition from a 2B Phantom to a 2A Dragstar, and while I'm happy with the move I have a couple of questions from the seasoned riders here (some maybe a repeat from the chain above - so apologies for that):

 

- Hot ride: Even in the initial few rides, the engines have been giving off a lot of heat from both sides. So much so that my trousers get uncomfortably hot. While some of this might be the hot summer weather, is it common for Dragstar engines to radiate so much heat?

 

- Rubber: What are the recommended tyres for a Dragstar?

 

- Saddle Bags: My ride came with a Givi box, but I prefer Saddle Bags. Is there a good place to shop for Dragstar/Yamaha accessories or the usual LAB/Regina/Auntie Shop is your goto option too?

 

Thanks a ton guys!

Dragstar is running on air cooled engine. Therefore compare to liquid cooled engine, air cooled engine will be hotter when bike is stationary.

 

In regards to tires, it's up to individual preferences. Most impt is to get the right size, and take note of the tires production date. Old tires rubber will be hard and may not be providing sufficient grip.

 

I recommend online shop like vikingbags or saddlemen. Local one are not so durable, and quite costly especially from the kaki bukit Aunty shop. You may take a look at eBay or amazon, sometimes u can get good saddlebags with cheaper rate.

Thanks Cruiserian. My earlier Phantom was also air cooled, but the dragstar feels uncomfortable hot even when the bike is moving (albeit moving slow). I guess I will either get used to it or get it checked if its too much.

 

I checked vikingbags and saddlemen, and while they have a drool-worthy collection, neither claim to ship to Singapore. Has anyone purchased from them before, and did you use services like V-Post to get them here?

 

Regards,

Communication might be a problem, but they provide rather fast delivery.

Of course I trust my skills. I ride alone cos I don't trust the competency of the driver next to me.

I have Fren who bought s4 revo items from them and these items doesn't fully fit. And I don't find their items cheap too. But I understand 400cc not easy to find accessories. USA sites only carry bigger bikes parts. So you can only end up with japan webike which targeting Asian bikes. U can try taobao of China. Cheaper in my opinion. But bare in mind their quality might not be as good as what you expected.

I bought a few things for my Honda PCX from them. Delivery is very fast indeed. Try and order more than 50,000 YEN to get free shipping. I ordered my Yoshimura exhaust from them and because it was more than 50,000 YEN, I qualified for free shipping :cheers:
