Hi omnislash ,

 

Do you know where is Motrax33, I also interested in headlight covers.

BTW, where can I get the FJR HUGGERN UNDERSIDS?

Thanks

His name is Alvin.. I just recieve a PM from him asking me to contact his sales person Aric at 91000078. I'll contact him tmr... I only want the headlight covers from them..

 

As for rear hugger, one possible source is from geelong.. Its an australian brand. Its more possible to get from them than from topline unless u know how to navigate their webside and purchase online from them. But geelong's rear hugger has the carbon fibre look which i thnk its not very nice.

 

I cant remember whether they have underside tray anot..

Biting on the fray of my hair, I muse upon the way to find the oasis of evermore beyond the vertical horizon, I shall join the windupdeads in owl city, neither my safetysuit nor my red jumpsuit apparatus can save me, cuz I mistook a death cab for cutie in plain white T's...

If yours 24.8k otr is the final price(i.e include insurance, 1/2 road tax, and any other misc charges) you will pay, 11k take in i think is somewhere standard price.

Ask around some shops will get the best price for trade in. Have you try selling private?

thks for the reply.

 

did ask ard the kaki bukit area & best offer was "when the shipment come we will c how lah, can give u good price of ~$12k if u buy another bike from me lah" was happy to hear that can fetch $1K more." "Bro if i get FJR1300A how much uh?" "ok bro, since u so sincere i give u good price. how old uh u?" "i 32 lah"

 

so the shop owner took out his "big screen" calculator and did his formular. "ok bro, give u ntuc 1st party ins., 1/2 year road tax ...mmm... ok ~$25,900 plus minus abit, must comfirm the bike when shipment arrival."

 

end result after a afternoon seach - LPPL!

 

pls let me know if anywhere can get good price. thk u

Anyone have try the Michelin Macadam 100X on your bike?

http://www.motofitment-michelin.co.uk/cgi-bin/images/mlogo.gifhttp://www.michelin.com.sg/images/motorcycle/mot_cat_road_100x_b.gif

High-performance sport touring radial

Successor to the popular Macadam® 90X™ radial. Can be fitted in combination with Macadam 90X radials, front or rear.

Front tyre features a new tread design for exceptional resistance to uneven wear and cupping, without sacrificing adhesion on wet or dry roads.

Rear tread design similar to the Macadam 90X, already renowned for its outstanding

mileage; transverse grooves eliminated to increase the contact patch while cornering.

In order to improve our offer in radial tyre for sports touring bikes, we developed Macadam 100X from Macadam 90X. This new version keeps Macadam 90X qualities with better mileage on the front tyre, plus overall improved motorcycle handling.

Specifically designed for sports tourers they offer excellent grip, comfort and tyre life. This longevity and increased performance is achieved with a new casing structure and new rubber compounds, which also give greater cornering security.

The ideal fitment where high mileages are a priority as well as stability and load carrying capacity. New tread patterns and compounds giveexceptional grip and the belted crossply construction prevents centrifugal growth to reduce wear.

 

 

or the Bridgestone BT020 (Sport Touring) :

http://www.motorcycle-karttires.com/tireimages/BT020R.JPGhttp://www.motorcycle-karttires.com/tireimages/BT020F.JPG

 

Features

C.T.D.M. (Comprehensive Tire Design Method) improves ride comfort and shock absorption.

Extra deep tread depth for extended mileage

Mono-spiral belt (rear) for shock absorption and high speed stability.

Silica compound provides improved and exceptional grip level on both dry and wet surfaces without sacrificing high speed durability.

Tires with "U" OE code are general replacement spec

I think it better for you to gauge from the tyre thread.. Different rider of different riding style will affect the tyre wear rate.. From wat i read up.. hard braking and fast pick up are two main cuprit of excessive tyre wear.

 

Also, u also got to consider whether you are travelling in the day or nite. I think there a different between these two.

 

If dun wan to take risk, change it man.

thanks for the tip, man

 

did not ride up this time round, took the plane instead :)

 

ya, i guess i'll have it changed before my next trip.
