dont worry. I learn that too.... my 2005 busa manage to sell at $4k only. pathetic. so I quickly dekit n sell off cheap2

 

so if u think the aftermarket $3k rims. brembo pumps n monoblock calipers will add value...

 

well u need to wait to find that buyer.

 

coz reality is accessories is not covered in the insurance.

 

so its best if leave the bike stock. if gonna overhaul. recount the budjet. if possible sell.

 

a custom bike will only make it even harder to sell...

 

Ya man. I did up my drz, replaced all the necessary stuff. Added accessories also. In the end had to sell back to shop. Damn sad. Sold at a loss. Te only thing I hope is the engine breaks down. It was sounding weird just when I was selling it off anyways. Hopefully karma catches up to the shop..

Ride fast..ride safe..don't crash...

I bought my busa from this particular shop...

 

now the shop dont even want my bike saying all the bullshit stories of how the engine is in bad shape

 

I happen to had overhaul the bike at gerry looi.

 

but I had to sell the bike at a loss ar....

 

I learn my lesson. its actually very hard not to pimp my ride. hand ichy.

 

but I always reflect on this incident.

 

in singapore vehical ownership Is a losing game....

 

so just keep on changing bikes. dont mod. its much more practical. coz in the end still gonna fork out money.

 

of coz buy a cheap n reliable 2b bike for the everyday run.

 

my late grandfather suzuki gn125 still runs. Although not at its peak but it will do the job.

 

class 2 bike... just keep on changing....

No lah i think depends. If you find one bike that you truly like and know you'll keep it for long, go ahead and customize it to your heart's delight. If still unsure, better ride stock.

then come one point , he decide to change bike

 

then sell above market price coz of the customise accessories

 

which again if stolen or eaten up by fire or by mother nature....

 

insurance wont pay a single cent more on top of the stock actual market value....

 

logic or not.... individual

Problem with bigger bikes are that when it comes to wear and tear parts, it's definitely more costly than something for a spark 135. Also there is the electronics (ABS, traction control etc). Can never escape these kind of things with whatever bikes you ride. So for me as a rider, I have come to terms to these kind of maintenance. Pimping up your ride, some like, some don't but I guess if it helps with your riding or improve something critical (better brake pump, braided hoses etc) I say why not. End of the day we spent within our means so that our machine takes us from point A to B safely and reliably.

yeah, accessories is just extra, the best is still depend on condition and whether been regular serviced and cleaned

wonder why class 2 downgraded to 2a/2b? due to high maintenance, high fc or too heavy to handle? am looking for class 2 now...hope am not regretting and wana change back smaller bike later....lol

high maintenance due to wear n tear NOT the regular servicing. the normal servicing some cheaper some a lil bit more only

 

of coz high fuel consumption too. (some ppl no problem with this)

 

n sometimes

arrh, i always think class 2 is "heavy" for one leg stand at traffic light is the only point people letting go...:thirsty:

Some people don't like 2B cos feels like a bicycle also. Hahaha too light, no power and in some traffic condition, struggle. But yah can't beat FC on a 2B. Every time you pump also it be like 5 dollar. Hahaha

See some people spend more on the bling, less on the maintenance part, more sticker more important than change of EO. Sure bike looks nice on the outside but some don't know how to see if the bike is working properly or not.

 

People usually downgrade due to financial situation, family, change of job etc. If you think you can maintain it, why not, class 2 try to go for new, cheaper on the maintenance because less wear and tear, the only time you'd have to spend alot is when u crash or the bike came with problems.

any class 2 abt $3k suggestion?

 

Downpayment or full cash?

 

Full cash, don't count on it, you can't even get a good class 2A with that amount, have also soon you'll have to top up COE.

 

Even if you can find one, there will be hidden costs.
