1 side caliper add on 3 brake oil line think another $500+. Not sure which shop can do, the price quoted for DIY only....if shop, I think another $$$ labour charges....

Whoa that's :giddy:

 

i need to change my fork oil n probably overhaul my brake pistons n stuff...

 

anywhere to recommend?

 

 

When I do a full lock on my handlebar my thumb gets trapped between the grip and the fuel tank...anyway to fix this? Clip ons?

yup thanks for the tip.... good thing this thread only 4 pages easy to read, not like the cbr or rvf tens of thousands of posts...

 

mayb for electrical stuff like rectifier, fuse etc can use other bike parts, but wat abt stuff like piston, camrod bearings etc? surely cannot right? i know for 2a 4 stroke rarely are these things changed unlike 2b 2 stroke but just wondering.

 

okay, so mayb let's say i'm interested to get an sv400 after my 2a in feb next year. but i'll definitely want to get full fairings and respray for the outlook factor. anyone knows whether the half fairing version can just add on another piece below to make full fairing, or must i buy a entire set of customised fairing and fit it on? cos i noticed the sai tao and the side fairings seem to be combined together unlike most 2b sportbikes... so will def be more troublesome and EXPENSIVE :help:

 

thx man. btw anyone interested in selling next year, also can give me a pm :cheeky:

Now there's someone selling @ 3k wat...at Garage Sales...

you go ask him to hold for you till Feb lor..haha

 

There's a authorised dealer for Suzuki so I don't think spare parts will be a problem...at the very most you have to order and wait a little longer lorZ..

 

Adding the fairings will reduce your insurance premium...but the fairings ain't gonna be cheap...

actually if you really want to know... it's all about money o_O heh heh

 

ducati servicing is EX.

cbr is 5-6k

rvf is 7-8k

 

i sell my kips, max 3.5k for a trade in... add on the fact tt whatever bike i get confirm want to do a respray and some modifications... do the math. i just dont want to have to top up too much and bust myself trying to service my instalments.

 

count in the fact tt i'm a "decent" rider... a relatively cheaper japanese v twin doesnt sound so bad. still considering all options, of course, there's a long way to go...

The front seat you have got to use 2 Allen keys to open. First, look for a black plastic covering with fins just below the front seat. There's one on each side. The bolt size should be right for a size 8 Allen key. Take both off.

 

Next, you should see another set of Allen bolts, this time size 10 or 12. Take both left and right sides off and your front seat is free.

 

Cheers,

kyquek
