I think IRC tyres aren't recieving any good comments when it comes to slippery road.

 

Somebody said that the bike's more difficult to start when the choke's pulled? Please ensure that you dun throttle in when starting the bike. Choke on means dun throttle.

2) If i want to mod my bike, like change handlebar, change leg rest, change different parts, i also go to ah koon huh? Or are there other shops with good price and recommended?

1) If i want to change EO, do some checks and tuning, what is the recommend motortiam for this, which provide good, and reliable and fairly inexpensive services? Is it ah koon? I know its highly recommended by the PKs.

REPLY: We can only share the info wif you, how good, it also base on your expectation. To be frank Ah koon is not the Best

 

2) If i want to mod my bike, like change handlebar, change leg rest, change different parts, i also go to ah koon huh? Or are there other shops with good price and recommended?

REPLY: There are allot of mod shop in SG, it depend on wat you want & how much you can Pay. Maybe you can be more specify on wat are the items you want eg, eagle handle bar or fatboy style or sporster & etc , If you want a full cosmectic mod. Can $3500.00 wif paint job? :thumb:

 

If you have meet up with the Knight in here for outting & etc, you will know & see & can ask wif a better pic abt it.

Next time it flashes orange, go straight into a petrol kiosk and pump full tank.

 

The bike's full tank capacity is 11.2L, so 11.2 minus whatever you manage to pump inside (the figure is inside the receipt) should be your "reserve" tank.

 

For the old model, my reserve is around 3+ litres. If you estimate 1 litre can travel an average and conservative mileage of 30km/ltr, then I can estimate my reserve can last me for 90~100km.

 

Hope this helps.

When it flashes orange, i also wanted to go and pump, but i was on my way to work and can't afford to be late, so i just carry on for awhile maybe like 10km and reach work place and parked. Therefore first thing this evening after work i will go and pump again. Thanks for the help, at least i know the reserve still can last me some 50km and above.......kool. cheers! :smile:

You're welcome!

 

If you cannot immediately go and pump, just note the distance travelled between when the light flashes till you pump, then add back to your estimate.

about your braking, my brake was also like yours last time. Solved it by changing the spring for the front brake. Now my brake very smooth and soft :smile:

 

another cheaper method is to spray some oil at the lever area. It might work :goodluck:

Did you just buy a 2nd hand bike?

There are times when the bike has been left there too long, then the brake pump will be very stiff and reacts like that. I changed the brake pump and it's so smooth now. :smile:

i try to pump every 200km + or - 20km. better safe than sorry to stop at expressway.

u ride ur bike not ur bike ride u :)

I pump when i see the orange light on the petrol signal, which is about 300km travelled since my last pump. Try to pump when close to the finish of the tank, because some experienced riders told me, try not to mix two different type of petrol especially if you still got half tank then pump another type of half tank, that might cause problems. Unless you always pump the same brand same type, then no problem at all........cheers! :cheeky:
