Ya... I roughly know what they have done on the bike. The mechanic did run through an explanation of the entire process and the parts that was changed. The price is a bit high due to the fact that many of the parts need to be imported but the job was done well and I am quite satisfied. 1k too much for a 400cc? Well, that's a typical calculative mindset. To me, it doesn't matter much about the cc size. It is the passion for the bike that counts. Money earned is meant to be spent anyway... Haha... :cheeky:

seriously its too much...

care to share wat did he change/overhual..

its like changing alot of parts to news one!!! (example carbs, not wear n tear items)

changing a pair of tyres, chain & sprockets will set u back ard $500, wat happen to e rest of

mayb ducati M400 can match tat!

 

ps : jus curious, not doubting u :smile:

SV's acceleration is already pretty fantastic imho...v twin lehZ

 

I got steel braided for the front n thinking of changing the rear hose too but dunno if it'll be worth it as I hardly use the rear brakes...

erm.. Buzz.. no matter what u say, I STILL don't feel the torque/pick-up/whatever.

 

dunno why? 1 thing though, I feel more comfortable/confident riding it than the kips. so much more stable!

 

PS. MY KIPS REAR SEAT GOT STOLEN!!! ALONG WITH MY FROG! :( very sad.

eh? wat frog?

KRR rear seat is very easy to force open

 

its so much heavier than a KRR of coz you'll feel comfy la

haha if you don't feel the pick up, at traffic lights you just move off as per normal and see how far away the cars that were beside you are by the time you hit 3rd gear...I always get a real kick out of that :)
