My idling was at 1.1 to 1.2 there abouts...

 

I used H1 for my 400..but i think the 400 and 650 have different headlight assemblies..

 

brake pads..i used NewFren...never heard of it b4 but it served me well...coupled with the HEL brakehose i fitted on..

 

rewrapping a full system...difficult...so expensive i'd expect

erm,.. this is a Fs (6 yrs) bike. u try comparing the price n insurance with other 600s in its class. it alot more cheaper!

 

but again, ask urself whether u really like this bike, its vtwin, its half naked. if u dun like, no point even if its cheaper!

Its definitely in my range of bikes i am looking for..V twins....naked.....SLURP! ...

 

Suddenly come to thinkof it, i should look at it in its class of 650s. :sian:

if i'm not wrong.. sg only has the s version. which is with head fairing.

400cc is only for countries like sg with this license system for bikes..

most countries only have 650cc or 1000cc..

really depends on how warm the engine already is, or got clear carbon anot..

i can hit 180km/h anytime on my 400.. 190 is an every now and then thing (doesn't mean tat it must be downslope, straight and flat road also can)

Thanks for the guide but adding the machine price to my transfer, insurance, rd tax...it seems like its on the high side :giddy: :giddy:

It helps to save some $$$ if you can pay the bike in full and buy 3rd party fire & theft for your insurance. Last time for my bike, 1st party is more than $1k. Now 3rd party fire & theft premium is at $250.

 

And do the transfer on your own instead of going through bike shop. That helps alittle too.

Mine is the 650S

 

For idling, Manual says 1.2k - 1.4k. So I kept mine at 1.3K.

 

Headlight is x 2 H4 45/45W. Bulbs of higher wattage cooked my wires once. Rewired a relay system to fix this.

 

Front brake bads using daytona, with hel brake lines. Braking power just ok only, nothing to shout abt, takes some effort to lock the front wheel. The brakes on the S4 is definately more superior.

 

Exhaust buang? Are you referring to the corner near the muffler which is flat?

Hi weiz85,

 

If I did not remember wrongly, you got a silver SV400S from Mah Motors? I was the previous owner and have a spare windshield(quite streaked with lines though, the current one on the bike is courtesy of Albert) and "Fusso 7" bike polish for pearl metallic bikes. PM me if you want them. I was clearing out the store when I saw them in a corner, really brings back memories of the bike. Anyway, it is great to see you enjoying the bike.

 

Cheers,

kyquek

thanks for the stuffs .

too bad cant catch up with u nad ur tdm at planet.

But where to find H4 45/45w? Most are 55/60w....

Thinking of changing to vision plus....

Braking power I feel that is much better than my spec 2 even it is using the 2 potters and smaller rotors.....Master cylinder should plays a part in braking feel....

 

I mean really buang not the corner at the end, thinking of getting the Leo Vince exhaust...Hope less than $500....
