yeah....the new px is not...but LX,GT,ET all auto's.....

leonids, shadowspid said u did your paint job at future right???how much?

Done it at Replica. Paint job itself cost around S$550.00~.

 

Left bike at Future for dismantling & assembling. That will be another additional cost of S$80.00~. (Must look for Ah Seng of FS. Not Ah Seng of Ah Seng Aquarium. Kekeke..........)

 

* From Jan 2007, Vespa Club members get discount at Future Scootering. :smile:

Anybody bought their lx150 at alexandra? i'm dropping my p plate in march. Will insurance be cheaper once i drop my p plate? cause i intend on getting by end of feb if insurance is not cheaper.

LX at Alexandra. Is it Albert? kennyatemyburger got his bike there. You might want to speak to him???

 

As for insurance, can also consider Mitsui.

 

BTW, thougt insurance is based on age?

in my opinion get a px dude. i've always thought of getting a twist and go bike cause i thought they were so easy. i've tried gilera runner and a couple of other auto kups like yamaha mio and nouvo but honestly nothing beats the feeling of changing gears. plus engine brake is more useful than i had imagined. get a new px with front disk brake and you're good to go. older models might need a mod or two if you want your ride to be smoother.

 

Sharpey is right, they sell Mojitos at that shop at the corner of the big junction going towards Boon Keng road. I used to want one badly but then I figured out it ain't really worth the price tag. ~7k if I'm not wrong.

Hi LX riders...

Need some inputs from u guys... I’m doing some homework/research for my gf who wants to buy a LX 150 after she pass her 2B...

 

Now I’m in the midst of doing some $$$ calculations. Need to find out the maintenance cost for the bike. I need some info on costing

 

1) Belt Cost, duration of change?

2) Rollers cost? How many and duration of change

3) Any Coolant?

4) Tires a set how much, duration of change

5) Spark plug how many, engine oil how much and any oil filter?

6) Brake pads, how many sets? How much per set?

7) Petrol Consumption?

8) Is there any things else that I miss out that I can foresee must change within 2yrs of ownership?

 

 

Really appreciate if the LX riders here can help mi on the above. Cheers!

my 2 cents

 

1) Belt Cost, duration of change?

$100+-, 12000km-18000km

 

2) Rollers cost? How many and duration of change.

$25+-, recommended with full servicing

3) Any Coolant?

Lx150 does not have coolant, only gt200,gt60,gtv125 & 250

 

4) Tires a set how much, duration of change

$150+- 1 set. Rear is 10000km+-, front 16000km+-

 

5) Spark plug how many, engine oil how much and any oil filter?

Spark plug $10+- (Average between champion and denso) only 1. Can last more than one

 

can remember. ahah

 

engine oil $15-25 (Castrol R4 to Motul) every 5000km recommended

1 litre.

 

oil filter. $20+-. Recommended to be changed with engine oil changed.

200ml+- capacity needed to fill it up

 

6) Brake pads, how many sets? How much per set?

Unsure, yet to change. Still healthy after 17000km.

 

7) Petrol Consumption?

For lx150, fc is 37km/litre @ its best.

 

8) Is there any things else that I miss out that I can foresee must change within 2yrs

 

of ownership?

Hmm, hub oil, which last as long as spark plug. Do need to check with dip stick.

Fuel, brake hoses. Around $20 each.

Cleaning of carb.

 

roughly that's all. cheers!
