Today I replaced my 10 year old stock mirrors with the Rizoma Tomok replica mirrors (made in China) bought from AliExpress for $44. The right hand side of my stock mirror weight, embedded inside to prevent vibration at high speed, has loosen and it causing a very irritating buzzing sound.

 

The new mirrors stem is made of CNC aluminum, about 50% lighter than the stock mirrors and the area of the mirror is 50% smaller than the stock. The new mirror is slightly tinted blue to prevent glaring and the looks match the bike outlook. The quality of the mirrors are quite good, overall I am happy with the purchase, in addition reviews from buyers commented no vibration up to 140km/h.

 

Here is the new look with the replica Rizoma mirrors

In response to the inconsiderate and reckless driver, I decided to install a action camera on my motorcycle to safeguard myself if there is any dispute.

 

I bought the latest SJ4000 action camera and ram mounts

 

SJ4000 cost $112 from Aliexpress and the ram mount cost $65 inclusive of shipping.

 

Here is the set up of the action camera,

Now running PC3 Map, 214-517, (European Model - Akropovic Full Exhuast, Stock or After Market air filter), so far seems to work fine with stock bike.

 

214-507 - (European Model - Completely stock bike) is too rich.

Went to 219 motor shop to customize a sticker for my meter face plate. I dismantle the meter for them to scan the face plate, the art work cost $10, and the sticker cost $5. They say it will be ready on Monday.

 

Bought the matte LCD polarizer film, going to replace the burnt film on my meters, the display a bit faded but still readable.

 

I have tried with success to replace the LCD polarizer film on my 10 year old digital camera, the display is working like new now.

 

So I am going to replace the polarizer film on my bike meter myself once the sticker are ready.

What's the problem with your clutch? I have the service manual for 04 to 06 Z750 which you can refer to rebuild your clutch.

I have installed a SteelMate S881 motorcycle alarm on my bike yesterday. I bought it from TaoBao for $40 and paid $20 to VPost to ship here.

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=312908&d=1412777488

 

I will not post picture of where I wired and place the alarm for the security of my bike.

 

The connection of Steel Mate

 

Red - Connects to the Ignition Switch White Wire

Orange - Connects to the Ignition Switch Brown Wire

Black - Connects to bike's frame

Yellow - Connects to the left signal Green Wire

Yellow - Connects to the right signal Gray Wire

Gray - Connects to the crank shaft sensor Yellow/Black Wire

Blue - Connects to the junction box Black/Red Wire

Pink - No need to connect

 

I did not cut the bike wires instead I use scotch lock to splice into the wires

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=312910&d=1412777501

 

Everything works except for the remote start(the starter motor crank but will not start). There is a Gray wire connects to the ECU when the ignition switch key is turned on, I am not sure what signal it sends to the ECU, I need to read further on this wire for the remote start function.

 

Edit: Read from the web there is a resistor inside the Kawasaki ignition switch on the gray wire to step down the voltage, the ECU once detect this then the ignition will start.

 

The remote start worked now, I wired a 0.25w 100ohm resistor and 1N4001 diode from the steel mate orange wire to the ignition gray wire.

Any advice for coolant change? Can I just use distilled water and flush it every year? No need chemicals to keep the pipe from corrosive and frozen.

Your cooling system will need the anti corrosion and lubricant for water pump. I am now using Toyota super long life coolant, its about 5 degree cooler.
