Dear members,

I can see that the x8 riders is increasing and I do understand that the scoot share the same engine as X9 and even Atlantic, etc...., but there's parts different between 2 of them. I personally suggest to have a X8 cafe, any objection?

 

FYI, So far there's more than 10 X8 in SBF scooter forum already.

 

Brembo & who_noe?

 

Members,

this is just a discussion topic, pls bring out your point :smile: NO WAR, OK :thumb:

 

Voting will close in 1 weeks from now :smile:

Hi all...

 

After stopping riding for 7 months from a bad accident, i'm back.. Just brought myself an X8, and would like to share with other x8 riders as well as know more about the bike!

 

I think it should be seperated since the x8/x9 cafe is mostly about x9 and when i was trying to buy the x8, i couldn't find much info too! (Of coz, the bike is new, so i guess few pple are riding, so less pple know)

 

:cheeky:

Scare.. Scare... Safety first!

Just brought mine x8 today... so wouldn't know much! Me oso never ride CVT before... Have been riding for 2 years plus though.. i'm 1.78m, so it is just right for me i feel.. I dun feel very comfortably on the x9 though, tried before liao...

 

Can i just check with you guys.. Is the temperate guage always at half... i have no idea how a sccoter works in terms of cooling.. Plus the last owner forgot to pass me the manual... So i'm kind of lost..

Hmm...kenny has a good suggestion.

cus personally i felt X8 should have a place for them to grow.

 

Take for example the Joyride cafe...it doesnt have many members

but as i read inside the thread, it has some pretty good interaction between

the few joyriders.

 

I am in for it. :thumb:

Just an update. the X8 seat really too high for Asian. I have to cut down by around 10-15mm at least.

 

Now my two leg can touch the ground now. I m 1.73 height.

 

One common design flaw is the joint (both side) somewhere centre below the seat. Not flush in perfectly.
