Two of my LEDs around the headlight not working. Anyone having this problem or knows how to fix it?

 

Don't think can fix unless you know how to DIY with electronics background.

 

If under warranty, why not go back to Motorsport.

 

If no more warranty, why not go back to motorsport also ha ha.

 

They got special mod also. A circular ring of SMD they retro fit over the original SMD.

 

Look like the pics below 15 SMD.

Hey Parotae, tks for your advice. Bought secondhand so no more warranty. Anyway the 'SMD' looks good.. What's SMD btw and how much to replace?

 

SMD means Surface Mount Device.

It's actually SMD LED.

SMD because the so call LED dont have legs like LED.

Something like that ha ha. Google it better.

 

Can get at sim lim tower. You can check it out shop at basement B1-25.

Lots of sample LED for you to try.

 

Price I don't know, maybe $10-$25 a piece.

Not sure if it need a driver. Usually it's ready to fix on 12V supply.

 

You can call Motorsport and ask them how much they charge to retro fit it.

They have the parts, so save the hassle of buying your own.

Not sure if they do it for fun or for business. Please check with them.

Look for Mr Herbert ot Ah Lau.

 

Tomorrow Motorsport got trip to Malaysia Desaru.

Anyone interested please call ah Lau at Motorsport for details.

That was a nice Meet-up just now. Talking about Kymco and the other technical stuff.

 

Met some moto-V group and made a few friends too ha ha.

 

Looking forward to the next meet. :D :thumb:

 

Test rode the Xciting 400. One word "POWER!"

 

Got the turbo effect when the power kick in at ~5000rpm.

 

Vavavroom! and time to brake cause reach the end of the Carpark.

Got this feature ah?

I didnt rev until 5000.. .>.

wasted..... next time try again...

 

Something like that, using turbo as a description. Actually it felt like that to me.

 

When you pick up (open the throttle fully) the scoot will pull away and built up speed.

During initial pulling the variator gear will maintain at a certain rpm say 4500rpm until the scoot pickup enough speed the variator will change to a higher rpm allowing the engine to pull even harder going into peak torque where it pull the hardest hence the turbo effect.

Have to try it to feel it. Just hold the throttle full and feel the rush when that power kicks in.

I look at the rpm quickly after the power came in and it was about 5000rpm. If i didn't see wrongly that is :p

 

Found a video for your reference. Although it's free wheeling revving on a mainstand i suppose. It clearly shows the behavior of the scoot I'm describing. At from idling to 5000rpm the sound is of a lower tone and then the engine tone changes from 5000rpm upwards. That is that point where i felt the scoot starting to chiong faster.

 

I maybe exaggerating abit but that's how i felt ha ha. Every butt feels differently though i guess.:cheeky:

Here's another video of a test ride conducted by Kymco in Taiwan.

At video 1:33, the tester after the corner opens the throttle and the engine sound changes (1:35) with the rpm. That is the point where you can see the scoot pulled away quickly overtaking the other scooter.

Just wondering, what is the average fc for the kymco xciting 300 / 500 and myroad 700 ?

 

In need to find a tpt and currently considering kymco, as it looks so handsome.. :) just hope that it can also have a low maintenance.

 

Thanks,

AJ

Thanks bro. Was surfing on the Kymco SG site. Did not realize about the xciting 400. As my main priority is sitting posture since i'm 1.78m tall. Hope I can find a suitable maxi-scoots for daily transport.

 

By the way, did call Kymco and they say there is myroad 700 second hand. Anyone knows the history of that bike? Can PM me?

 

 

I am 1.8 and i tested the 400...Overall feel and handling....

ITS NICE!!!!!!!!
