so good, we've exceeded 100 posts for this thread..

 

Anyway, i did some research about engine oil which might be impt to FJRians.. Maybe some already know of this too..

 

It seems that we are restricted to using 4T oils and not just any car oils even though they are premium quality for example Mobil's Tri-Syn and SuperSyn and others..

 

This is because they come along with diesel engine protection rating of

C() for most of them. 4T oil dun, in most cases.. I'm not sure how impt it is to follow the owner's manual but i won't wan to take any risk...

 

That time i went HL for oil change, they charge me $20 per bottle (1 litre) of Shell Advance engine oil. The grade is 15W-40 if i'm not wrong. I went to look up Shell petrol kioks and found out that 15W-40 seems to be Advance S4 which cost only $5+ a bottle. i felt that i'm chopped but i can't confirm. Anyone knows?

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...

Hi, another FJR1300ABS owner here, mine is metallic green and you should see me on the BKE very often. :smile:

I am still running in my bike, so if you see someone riding like an idiot, it's me lah. :weep:

My plate is FX, give me a "honk" if you see me on the road, OK :cheer:

It doesn't make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

I was filtering to AYE.. He's moving off from a junction at clementi rd towards commonwealth ave.. I managed to confirm its an FJR when i was about to exit and he saw me as well..

 

I decided and wave to him and he nodded as response..

This is so cool.. :cool: Next time i'll do that when i see my own kind.. :smile:

Hopefully you guys out there will make big differences in the rite of way.

Thankz!

Hi, all FJRians, got a problem here..

 

Few days ago, i notice a slight vibration when my engine goes above 4K.. The vibration sets in and out periodically at intervals of 1 sec i would say.. I suspect its time for change of engine oil but i only went 2000km after the last change.. I use rock oil fully syn btw.. Last time not like that leh..

 

Anybody knows whats wrong? :pity:

actually this is very subjective 1 leh, sum might say STX better, while some will say itz FJR

 

4 me, the styling of the STX is great. but the price tag n weight of the bike... :nono:

 

FJR is good coz itz more affordable n easier 2 handle

 

ultimately, itz up 2 u
