Bro. ...hows the Rsv4 doin after sold your Nsr pgm4?

Firstly. .welcome to club..

I also bought used gts but bike can go easily 120 n 130km/h..but near to the redline if u goin at 130km..

best is to check for servicing...n congrats for a new ride....

 

Hey dude!

 

Rsv4 is awesome! It's a pocket rocket. Smth similar to the pgm4.

 

Resolved the issue. The issue was a wrong tyre size fitted onto the rear. Now it feels better. I'm running 100kmph at 8k. Which is the start of the red zone. Isit safe to maintain throttle at say 9k rpm in the red zone? Or I gotta stay below 8k rpm?

 

And the fuel guage is abit confusing!!

Does the bike hit reserve when it's at the lowest bar? Or will that bar blink? And how much is the reserve tank?

 

Mine drop from secondlast bar to last bar in less than 3km distance. -.-

 

So I'm guessing the guage is not accurate?

Best is not go beyond the redline... same goes on race bike..unless u wanna pop the engine...

Yup..im bit confusing on the fuel gauge bar...i guess the last bar is reserve...

So far i tried, the bike can ride more 270km or could go more till 300km then tank empty..

As for pg, i b goin on pgm lah.

As i nearly trade my fz1s for Aprc rsv4 but after read some technical issue i decided to hold till next year for new Honda V5 or new yamaha r1...see how it goes...

Hi members,

 

Have some question to ask.

 

1. Stated that the bike unladen weight is 151 kg and maximum laden weight is 319 kg. What does that means? Does it means that the rider, passenger and load weight should not exceed 319 kg.

 

2. How much pressure to pump for the tyres? For car I know its 220.

 

Thanks.

What does that mean? The 'laden weight' is the weight of a vehicle carrying some or a full payload.

Does it means that the rider, passenger and load weight should not exceed 319 kg. Yes.

How much pressure to pump for the tyres? For car I know its 220.

From page 31 pf the SYM GTS generic manual, it reads -

Front: STD 1.5kg / cm2 (22psi/147kPa), Rear: STD 2.25 kg / cm2 (21psi/220kPa) for 1 person,2.5 kg / cm2 (36psi/245kPa) for 2 person.

Hahahha I still confused about the damn petrol guage leh!

 

Will the last bar blink when it enters reserve?

 

Or it's reserve when it's solid last bar?

 

I've been riding about 50km on the last bar alr. Still not blinking.

 

Reserve is how many liters?

 

And what the o/r button on the meter for?

 

Searching online not really much help from elsewhere in the net haha.

      Not unlike the major Japanese players, Kymco has constantly sought to improve its product offerings to cater to the ever-increasing demands of motorcyclist. Gone are the days that owners just want a no-frills cheap motorcycle to get around but even the entry level models now comes packed with modern technology like ABS, smartphone integration, and many many more!

      We wrote on the Y-Connect from Yamaha as well as the RoadSync from Honda and today, we bring you the Kymco Noodoe which is now available from all bikes and scooters available from Kymco's exclusive distributor in Singapore - Motor Sport Pte Ltd (KYMCO Singapore).
      KYMCO Singapore authorised distributor: Motor Sport Pte Ltd

      KYMCO Singapore
      Blk 3006 Ubi Road 1, #01-350, Singapore 408700
      Tel: +65 6281 9778
      Noodoe Navigation, a revolutionary navigation experience designed for riders from the ground up, is officially available worldwide at the App Store and Google Play. Riders can now experience the completely new, rider-centric Noodoe Navigation.
      Noodoe Navigation is designed to allow riders to focus on the road, putting their safety first. Through its ROAD-FOCUSED NAVIGATION concept, Noodoe Navigation presents riders with the number of intersections on riders’ side of the street before their next turn instead of continuously telling them the distances to the next turn, which requires riders to stare at the screen constantly.

      Noodoe Navigation Proved to be Truly Rider-Centric in Test Ride
      Before the official launch of Noodoe Navigation, KYMCO invited hundreds of riders for a real world road test throughout Europe and Asia. Over 90% of the riders were satisfied with the Noodoe Navigation. Meanwhile, more than 80% of the riders wanted to choose Noodoe Navigation over other navigation systems. Moreover, more than 80% of the riders would go as far as recommending Noodoe Navigation to other riders.

      The following are the most favored features of Noodoe Navigation:
      ● At-a-Glance Directions
      When on the road, riders only have a short period of time to glance at the scooter's dashboard. Therefore, this rider-optimized navigation system has a consistent place on the dashboard for every piece of information. Information is presented in a simple and clear manner, with critical information fixed in optimal areas. Riders can always see what they want at a glance because the user interface of Noodoe Navigation is intuitively designed and easy to use.
      ● Street-Countdown Indications
      Through the street-countdown indication feature, riders can simply count down the number of streets left before a turn, without the need to repeatedly look down. This allows riders to stay focused on the road as they approach their next maneuver. During the entire ride, there are no unwanted alerts or interruptions. Riders can confirm the approach of the next turn whenever they want.
      ● Pre-Ride Destination Entry
      Riders can specify a destination on their phones before leaving home, so they don't have to enter the address into the scooter's navigation. When riders turn the key on, the destination automatically transfers from their phone to their scooter. Riders are all set before they start their journey.

      ● Personalized Journey Navigation
      Riders can enter up to 5 multiple destinations on their phone at once. As riders turn the key on, all 5 locations seamlessly transfer to the scooter to create the corresponding navigation journey they desire. This is especially useful when riders want to enjoy leisure riding or follow a scenic route along the way. Mrs. Wei, one of the test riders, has nearly 5-year experience in using navigation system for commuting and traveling. She pointed out, “The Pre-Ride Destination Entry feature is very convenient compared to other navigation systems. The design of user interface is easy to use, and the information is less likely to be misread.”
      Noodoe + Ionex
      For the owner of a KYMCO Ionex scooter, the combined Noodoe-Ionex experience elevates riders to the next level. Riders can pick an Ionex charge point including the Ionex energy stations through the Ionex mobile application on their phone and automatically have the location transferred to Noodoe Navigation. “Noodoe elevates the scooter navigation experience to a whole new level,” said Allen Ko, Chairman of KYMCO. “With Noodoe, the riders get a safer, more enjoyable, and overall the most heart-winning riding experience.”

      The Shoei Glamster is another full face retro helmet that’s designed to give you yesteryear’s styling and attitude alongside a hefty dollop of modern day helmet tech.
      It’s aimed at giving you the chance to stand out from the crowd while having much of the safety features and utility of a modern day lid. Which is a great idea.

       
      And since the Glamster shares its AIM helmet shell with many other modern day Shoei helmets, and because it comes with a Pinlock antifog visor and features like EQRS (emergency quick release cheekpads) – the idea is that you really don’t have to compromise.
      Shoei's exclusive Singapore distributor - Chong Aik:
      Quote "SingaporeBikes.com" when you contact them to let them know we sent you!

      So, if you like the look of the Shoei Glamster and are wondering whether it’s worth buying one – here’s all the info you need.
      Retro full face helmet Fibreglass AIM shell 3 Shell Sizes EQRS Pinlock antifog insert included Sizes XS-XXL Double D-ring fastener Safety
      The first thing to say about the safety of the Glamster is that it’s got Shoei’s AIM (advanced integrated matrix) fibreglass shell.
      That’s the same shell tech that you’ll find on the GT Air II and the SHARP 5 Star rated Shoei RYD.
      OK, the RYD scored maximum marks for safety and it’s got the same helmet tech, but that’s not the whole story, because SHARP have tested four Shoei Aim helmets so far and they’ve scored anywhere from 3 to 5 stars.

      So, if all things are reasonably equal, we’d expect the Glamster to score somewhere in that region too, which is pretty good going for a retro helmet. From memory there’s only the Bell Bullet retro that’s been SHARP tested so far and it scored 3 stars.
      Shoei has created the Glamster in three different helmet shells – that’s good for fitment, looks and safety and it’s a reasonably number of shell sizes for what’s actually a competitively priced helmet.
      Inside the helmet, you’ll find a dual density EPS liner (par for the course) and the helmet’s strapped to your bonce with a good ole fashioned and suitably retro double d-ring fastener.
      D-rings are generally straightforward to use and secure, so you shouldn’t have any problems here. I say ‘shouldn’t’ because I’m currently struggling along with my latest Simpson helmet and the double-d ring doesn’t slide very well so it’s a real pain. Still, that’s a rarity.

      Shoei has also included an EQRS liner inside the helmet – so if you do have an off-motorcycle excursion and the ambulance crew need to pull off your helmet, the EQRS cheekpads should make things easier.
      Including a Pinlock-ready visor on a retro helmet is a great touch too. It’s not massively in keeping with the retro vibe, but I’m pretty sure if riders in the 60’s had the option of being able to see out of their visors on cold and rainy days, they’d have bitten your hand off for a Pinlock – so why not?
      And it’s good to see Shoei including a Pinlock with the helmet – that’s always a big tick in the box in my book.
      So, overall, there’s lots going for the Shoei Glamster to suggest it’ll be a sound, protective place to put your head – which should probably be item number one on why we’re buying a helmet, right?

      Ventilation
      Shoei’s added a few air vents into the shell of the Glamster, though they’re not really what I’d consider massively practical.
      Those chin vents for example. While there are four of them – so they should let in quite a bit of air – they’re always-open, meaning that air’s always going to be pushing through the chin bar whether you like it or not.
      The forehead vent is closeable though, and it should let a reasonable amount of air into the top of the helmet.
      There are fairly generous internal air channels inside the helmet too and there are corresponding venting holes and cutaways in the internal liner to let some of that air get through to your head.
      The only problem here is that there are only two tiny exhaust vents in the bottom of the neck roll to let any air out. Which is going to reduce the helmet’s ability to vent around the head.
      It’s no surprise then that the word is ventilation’s about average – you can feel some air but you can tell they’ve prioritised form over function in this area, which is hardly a surprise in a cool-looking retro helmet I guess.

      Visor
      Of course, venting’s also used to keep the visor mist-free, and if you’re riding in cool/damp/humid air, then the Glamster will have a tendency to fog up.
      Thankfully, despite it being a retro-style visor, Shoei’s made it Pinlock ready and included a Pinlock in the box. So, attach the Pinlock and most of your misting problems will be gone.
      The visor opening’s reasonably generous for decent all-round vision, though it isn’t a quick release visor so if you ever want to swap it out or remove it for cleaning, you’ll have to get your screwdriver out.
      Shoei’s put a visor lock on the bottom of the visor, so close the visor and it’ll automatically lock. Push up on the black tab/lock and the visor unlocks.
      I’ve heard that it can be a bit fiddly to use at first and you might need to pull the tab forward a bit to disengage – but who said looking cool and retro was going to be easy. I mean you’ve gotta have some of the rubbish features that came with old helmets, right?
      Other than that, Shoei’s taken an old style visor and made it work well.

      Comfort and Sizing
      Internal fitment of the Glamster is medium oval – so should be the right shape for most riders’ heads.
      There’s not much info on what materials Shoei uses inside, except to say it’s a fully removable/washable liner with 3D moulded cheek pads.
      It’s also got EQRS quick removable cheekpads in there which is always worth having – anything to reduce injury, right?
      If you’re looking to fit a comms unit in there, you might be disappointed if your speakers are anything other than super thin, because there aren’t any speaker pockets in there, which is a shame.
      Shoei does know how to make a comfortable helmet though, so provided you suit the head shape, we expect the Glamster should be comfortable for long days spent on the North Circular.

      You can probably guess at the sort of graphic options available for the Glamster?
      There’s a nice off-white and a couple of blacks as well as a plain Basalt grey and Laguna blue. At the time of writing there’s also a range of different colourways in the Resurrection graphic incuding a white, blue and black.
      But you just know there’s going to be a stack more classy designs coming out soon. Feel free to click through to our recommended stores below to see the latest designs and Glamster deals. Nice one.

      Weight & Warranty
      The Shoei Glamster weighs around 1.2Kg (2.65lbs) making it a properly light weight helmet.
      It comes with an excellent 5 year warranty.
      Overall
      The Shoei Glamster looks set to deliver modern day helmet tech in a quality retro package.
      Not only does it look the part – using tried-and-tested Shoei tech. But looking at the data, we expect it’ll offer good levels of protection too.
      Shoei knows how to build a quality helmet and the Glamster has a ton of features that you’ll find on their modern full face helmets – including that Pinlock ready anti-fog visor (with free Pinlock) and EQRS.
      Just because it looks a bit 60’s doesn’t mean it won’t work like a 20’s helmet.
      There’s a new wave of retro helmets that work like modern helmets and the Shoei Glamster is the latest in the line. So if you like the look but still want a helmet that works on your ride, we’ve no doubt the Glamster will fit the bill admirably.
