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:

yeah i use esso 8000 so never mix with other.

Bullshit make u to the top,but it didn't keep u long there!!

Yesterday i also pumped Esso 8000, i can see the differences between esso 5000 & 8000 as my previous pump was 5000, the 8000 seems to give more power and is quieter. I will have to see the mileage tho, because the 5000 is about 300km before the reserve signal lighted up. If 8000 is able to go further then 300km i will definitely use 8000 from then on....:smile:

most probably esso5000 will give you better mileage

If thats the case, then it becomes a common thing that the best petrol gives the least mileage while the not so best one can last you longer. It seems the fact for V Power too and now Esso 8000 too hmmm.......strange. Maybe because the better quality petrol are more refine and tends to burn up faster and cleaner...:confused:

Noobie question:

 

Lately when i step on my foot brake, it doesn't seem as smooth as it use to be and it comes out with a "Yi Yi" sound like being press hard when i was gently pressing it. Is it because the rain cause some parts to rust and now got this squeaking sound? Or is it my brake got some problem? Its just a 3 week old bike, so not sure whats the problem? Pls advise. Thanks! :sian:

Next time you visit the workshop use the compressed air + blow-gun to blow at the brake caliper to clear the brake dust, see if that 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:

:sweat: :sweat:

sorri a bit sua gu... since when phantom start to have a low petrol indication light? or customized one?

The custom 4 model have this signal light that will turn orange when using reserve petrol and red when damn low on petrol. Therefore the moment hit orange light can go pump liao, that time i pump about 9.5L of petrol to the brim. that means the reserve is about 2L of petrol. Conservative calculation of 30km/L will get us about 60km before it drys.......:smile:

 

And because of this signal, the petrol control switch no longer have "off", "on", "reserve", just off & on only.

Noobie Question:

 

The two piece of mettal sticking out from the fork that holds the handlebar is call the riser? How come my riser doesn't seems to be very straight lay, like angle abit off, is it natural? I didn't crash or hit anything before, its a new bike so it shouldn't be bend right? Or naturally from factory its slightly bend? Can change or not? Please advice? Thanks! :sweat:

it may get mis-aligned coz it is rubber mounted. Common with phantoms :smile:

 

If it is misaligned clockwise, then turn ur handlebars to the extreme left, and tap the right side (throttle) of your handlebar with your palm. It should be able to straighten.

 

Vice versa, if the misalignment is anti-clockwise.

When you went for servicing, what did the mechanic do/change? Did you check the engine oil level?

Noobie Question:

 

Not long back i installed an anchor-shaped crash bar on my TA200, and the ending part of the crash bar is touching the exhaust pipe or should i say just next to the exhaust pipe. When i travel the bike vibrates and the crashbar seems to start to hit lightly on the exhaust pipe and now there is some rust on the spot. I'm afraid that as time goes by the crashbar might make a small hole in the exhaust pipe. Did anyone of you face this problem before? How can i prevent that from happening? Pls advice.

I take it you mean the crash bar is against your exhaust header?

 

If your crash bar was made for a TA200, there shouldn't be a problem, unless the bar was knocked out of shape due to bike knock or drop. In which case, you just got to knock it back into shape, or knock it out of the header's way.

 

Anyway, after time, your exhaust header is bound a rust at least a little and nothing you can do will prevent it. The most is just to minimize the damage through regularly cleaning and applying a protective layer of wax.
