Guys ... not happy wth my bike. Got flat spot at 3000 rpm; then surge. How? it's a carb model, 2002.

 

Cheers

When was the last time you had your carbs serviced and balanced?

 

Yours is a fairly new bike. The original carb settings should be very smooth actually, even on my 7 year old bike, even response throughout the revrange.

Sigh ... long story. Problem didn't start with the carbs; but with the fact that my bike has a slow return i.e. the engine rev down slowly, clear on the taco.

 

Some apparently experienced mech decided that it's a carb problem, tweaked it and viola! now got flat spot. My fren's 7 year old bike has better response and power than mine!

 

Sianz.

 

Cheers

Hey guys, I just got my bike back, changed clutch plates, clutch springs, brake pads front n rear, and serviced the brake calipers.

 

The result? My bike shifts much much better now! The gear lever feels 100times lighter than before, and shifting gears is not so notchy anymore. The front brakes though, I think need to change to steel braided hoses, cos the old rubber ones are ageing....

 

Yet another bill, hai.... But switching from a Suzuki Impulse (SUper4 like bike) to the Monster, although the power is not there, the feel and handling is :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: No words to describe the difference....

Talking about gear shifts, is it normal to hear a humongous loud niose when changing 1st to 2nd gear? It sounds like something hitting an empty metal container.

 

Told Mike about it and he said it's normal. It doesn't happen all the time, but it sure is loud....

normal...

 

some ppl like the sound so much that they put spacers in the clutch cover so that there's a gap and the sound comes out louder.. lol... or you can go get a vented clutch ccover which will cost about 300+... lol... does the same thing...

 

makes the gear change sound louder and cools the clutch plates...

From then to now...

The "Thunk" sound, right? That's apparent cos' the gear is changed when the revs are still high. ... make a mental note and you will realise that the sound is not there when you consciously close the throttle.

 

Actually, it's this sound that led me to realise that my revs are dropping too slowly.

 

Neo, how's your revs drop rate? Happy to know that your bike's healthy.

 

Cheers

Very true for the venti clutch cover to bring out the music of the dry clutch, but gear change music is still abt same.( for once i rode hm from mike without the cover...:cheeky: )

 

ps: make sure ur mons is having dry clutch...if not.....

:cry:

i xp it too but sometimes when i really want to dash off the traffic light, i didnt xp the...'sound' n usually i have this habit of reving b4 i downshift, but i dont always get the...loud gear engaging sound. So is it really true that high rev cos the 'thunk' from shifting from 1st to 2nd?:confused:

i think maybe at higher gear, you don't hear it cos you're moving faster? then the sound is travelling slightly behind? hahahaha... k... i think too much... hahahaha.... but might be true leh... then plus wind noise.. thats why can't hear anything else... ahhaha...

From then to now...
