No one TCSS, no happenings leh......

 

Maybe I ask the oldbirds here, how far can your bike travel before u need to pump petrol? I need to pump before 200km of mileage, ard 4litres...most of the time using manuual calculation, FC around 34-37km/l

 

Also realise something....if I park my Nouvo w/o riding for few days, the petrol like evaporate a bit.....maybe my fuel tank cover koyak but I check like ok leh.....

 

I seldom ride coz using most of the time using my car.....so a bit sian to see petrol evaporating away ......:sian:

Maybe those thieves purposely puncture your front tire so your bike won't be able to move..when it's not able to move,thieves will come and return for more parts to steal. It's their plan and tactics if they like something from your bike. Maybe they aim it liao that's why. Don't always park same lot and make a habit to cover up your bike especially if it's modded. o_O

Hi, I'm a nouvo rider. Bought a second hand nouvo. :)

 

Got some questions, hope you guys can help. I'm a newbie to riding, P plate still.

 

How much is the front and back tyre pressure? Back tyre says 250 kPa but front tyre never say!

 

And yes, I do realise that my petrol "evaporates" quite fast when i don't ride. I don't know why also. Any thing I can do to prevent it from happening?

 

Was calculating my fuel efficiency, just pumped few hours ago: 38km/l (not too bad. Will continue to monitor.

 

Oh, do you guys pump 92, 95 or 98 grade for petrol? I've been using 95, don't know if can go to lower grade or is it even advisable.

 

Thanks!

I'm riding nouvo mx..

For air,i pump 250 front and 280 back,am using 17" spoke rims with sotong tire..

Whether the petrol evaporates,i never realli notice,haha..

Regarding fuel efficiency,mine realli drink petrol,think full tank can onli go 130++km (mod too much)

I have been using 98 grade since i've been riding my nouvo.. but i think 92 shouldn't be a problem..

Maybe other nouvo riders can share their knowledge too?

just to share my FC.....it's ard 34 to 36km per litre....the tank so small (5 litres), have to look for petrol kiosk when mileage ard 150km.....

 

I also notice the fuel evaporates fast when not riding....as I'm mostly driving my car, my nouvo parked stationery really waste petrol sia....must make it a point to drive at least once in 3 days (short distance), if not waste petrol.....

 

tot of changing the petrol cap as I tot the seal got problem, now another novo kaki also got this problem.....must find out from the mechanic during next servicing at the workshop....

 

btw mjl, can i check how much u got your 2nd hand nouvo and what plate or year? I got my second hand nouvo at $1.6k (include insurance, rd tax, transfer and new IU), condition 8/10......buy immediately after test riding.....coz really so much cheaper than other cubs or scooters ard after I source for more than 10 bike shops....

Hi bikeagain, I got mine at 2.3k, FBA plate. Everything in already except insurance. The condition is very good, will give a 9/10. Test ride and buy also. I like the bike so far, easy to handle (esp for first timers like me).

 

Latest check for fuel efficiency: 40.5km/l. Not bad.

 

I think mine is 16 in rims. So is 180kPa for front tyre pressure too little?

Hi mjl,

 

Thanks for sharing the info...FBA plate at $2.3k is a great buy (some more new model, not like mine, the headlight is one piece type, not nice)......I luv this bike, very good 2nd transport....but a bit waste coz at most ride 2 times a week.....the best is ride to buy food......park right in front of kopitiam effortlessly........buy and go.....very convenient compared to car

 

for the tyre pressure, I'm not so sure too.....must go see the tyre specs liao.....

 

I going for servicing soon, anyone got any bike shops at Choa Chu Kang area to recommend?

Thanks bikeagain,

 

I was been that shop this afternoon, they don't have any nouvo at this moment. I also don't like the shop.

 

Another shop has a FBA plate nouvo with mileage 45000km, I test ride ok, like the engine. However, don't know whether 45000km for a FBA plate is too much or normal.

Hi Tom, Jon here, 45k km for FBA plate considered normal la... That's why I said my FZ plate at 26K km is considered low mah. but most importantly, its the periodic maintenance of the bike. Things like belt, roller, EO, Auto oil, tyres etc.. must change before any problem start to arise...

 

How much the bike shop quote u? msg/pm me for reference k?

Anyway, I'm truely amazed by mjl's 40km/l FC.... Mine is the most 34km/l...

But i travel at 100-110km/h most of the time due to alot of highway needs..

Nvr try to test whether keeping my speed below 80 can achieve anywhere close anot....

 

Oh Ya... Hi All, I'm Jon here, this is my 1st post in Nuovo's portal, been riding it since last yr and a ''phantom'' member of this thread.. haha:cheeky:
