Omg i am amazed by the sheer size of the varadero 125(i think its a 125). Saw 1 at night n parked infront of it. Tot of walking over n observe this " KTM adventure 900) n it turn out to be a Vara. Judging from the engine size n brakes, i really think its a 125. With it size, it really make my bike look like a 125...or even 80cc....:mad: :cry:

After I changed my clutch plates, my gearshifts became much quieter and lighter. Clutch plate set for Monster M400 (MY1998) costs $180.

wah.. so cheap arh? kron changed his Mito clutch plates for $190 leh... :giddy:

From then to now...

Well, whatever it is, the gears shift very nicely now. I changed the springs too, so clutch bite and feel is better.

 

Anyways, my bike just covered about 1000km over the Mayday holiday weekend, with a pillion. 2/3 trunk roads 1/3 highway, no problems at all, except the darned potholes and bullshit. Its so versetile, I think I might wanna get a bigger monster next time. :D

My Monster has definately been places. And as long as you don't push it too hard on the highways, stick to 110-120 all the way, the Monster will bring you anywhere. Once the twisties start, it will keep up with the fastest of them with no problems.

 

The power is not as good as other 2A 400cc liquid cooled Inline4s out there, but its certainly sufficient for local roads. When pushed hard in the twisties though, its a very good ride, and can go surprisingly fast round twisties with relative ease due to its confidence inspiring handling.

110-120 is cruising speed... max is maybe 160? 180? 200? maybe higher?

From then to now...

I think you're getting the wrong idea.

 

110-120 is the comfortable cruising speed. Any higher, the windblast will make you feel very stressed and tired. This speed depends on individual, but for me, 120 is the most I can take for long trips.

 

I don't know how much the rims costs, but I know it costs about $80 to respray your rims bright red. And EVERYONE claims Ducati's maintainence is very expensive, without providing a breakdown. :sian: Go back and see how many times I've posted my maintenance cost breakdown.

165 is the speed on my 400, it just wont go anymore. Even a 2 teeth lesser rear sprocket cant bring it higher. But mine was stock except the air filter. Btw, i tried twice dragging 1st gear to a max of 90km/h( dropping 2 teeth at rear). But i didnt do this to every gear to try to obtain top speed......could it be abit higher? shrug

Ya ... me too, 160 km/h, then I got scared and eased off the throttle. took the bike to mersing and back in a day, averaged from 90 to 140 or so, bout 9 hours riding time, no problems.

 

Cheers

Curious to know whether the monster here enjoy fully( group III or IV), semi or mineral engine oils? N Ron 92, 95, 98 or V-power.

 

My preference: Fully synthetic n Ron 95. 92 didnt ping for me but its kinda feel wierd or not as good. :?

90 on 1st gear!! :giddy:

 

I'm using 14/38, so 1st gear is pretty darn tall. But at most I drag until 50 only, I hear the engine scream I heart pain liao, shift to 2nd.

 

Btw, my bike did 170 on NSH before, touched 180 on certain downhill stretches. But it was on 14/43 sprockets. Now on 14/38, it doesn't like to go past 140 even though there are plenty of revs left. Too tall gearing I guess, but 110 is very comfy for the engine and rider :thumb:

i think my little bike can go faster than that leh... lol...

 

but monster never try before lah... comfortable cruising speed usually hold at 110-120...

 

little bike same comfy cruising range... but if pull to 140-150, the bike is very smooth... and its only at like 9-10k rpm... redline is close to 12... lol... but these kinda speeds, i think i feel more stressed out than the bike... hahaha...

From then to now...

I've never tried a Mito, but...

 

1) 120 indicated on my M400 = 130 on most class2A bikes, 150 on a Kips.

 

2) A mito can go to "200" on the meter. It has a smaller frontal area, has an aerodynamic fairing, and the rider can tuck in tight for an even small frontal area. Aerodynamics play a big part in top speed.

 

The Mito, a 125cc liquid cooled single cylinder engine, unrestricted, properly tuned, outputs about 30+hp. If you max it out, you can reach close to 300km/h, like 125cc class motoGP bikes.

 

The Monster on the other hand, has aerodynamics of a brick. "Tucking" in, or rather on the bike does little to help due to the tall seat, tall tank and wide handlebars. The engine is a 400cc air cooled V-twin, outputing less power than a 250cc Hornet (about 40hp). All in all contributing to a pathetic top speed. :D

lol... my mito clocks same speed as the monster... so i guess should be right.. haha...

 

i really wonder how the heck do those stupid tiny motorgp 125cc get up to 300km/h man... hahaha... hmm... maybe i try dropping my sprockets to 14x38 and try my top then come back and report... hahaha...

From then to now...
