Maybe your Nouvo is cold, get more blanket to cover it...:cheeky: :cheeky:

 

Just joking bro....haha......better dun tune timing too high....if not higher FC and battery cannot tahan the continuos high charging.....

 

maybe jus hold the throttle a bit during warm up lor......during cold weather, it's normal.....

Ya I agree... Just tune my carburettor (is it the 'timing' u all mention?) a few days back and now my engine can start smoothly even when cold or one day didn't ride.... won't die off while idle too...

 

BUT... I think FC suffer leh... first check drop quite significant, got to monitor it again.... I rather some times kick stand a bit, hold throttle to warm up if that assure better FC leh... hahaha

Ha Ha... My Big Big box at the back already got lotsa wind restraint leh...

Don't think will affect by alot la...

 

think of putting windscreen so got place to display labels la..

looks slightly ''executive'' too.. haha...

I removing all the stock stickers too... Long long ago feel like doing so but abit saiyang... haha

 

Now want to look for the windscreen if got sell and add a leather casing for the erp unit... see whether can get a mini maxi scooter look:cheeky:

 

Well, Burgman is great! esp 400cc ones... but $$ lah, Nuovo much cheaper to maintain...

Got your new helmet already?

 

Anyway, Need help from you guys, today I notice a ''screeching'' sound coming from the back of my bike when I try to accelerate from stop.... anyone got that problem before?

 

it does not happen very time.... goes on and off.. when it happens, i will have a small lag time then pick up. Bike performance is normal...

I got went Ah Boy the other day too... too bad they got no red helmets...

 

Side Bag? can fit Nuovo? How Big and How much?? I may be interested... Also have to see whether will get in the way for pillion cos i often got to pillion ppl..

 

Anyway, I have no idea what's wrong with my bike leh.... Just serviced, everything new, only nvr touch brake fluid b/f... but brake is ok...

I sometimes will experience the ''screeching'' sound after i stop at traffic light. i will notice the bike sound different and seems to move a little forward even though i didn't throttle... then when i start to throttle.. it will screech... a delay in moving off then i can go...

Really annoying, i can't pin point the fault and really busy lately so didn't go ask mechanic... Hopefully its not a big issue...

Bro, no idea leh... if u manage to find out i'll be interested to know too...

 

Yep, think overhauling engine will certainly bring its performance back to a certain level but not exactly like new la '',

Hi jodiator,

 

Yes, the side bags can fit our Nouvo. I'm not referring to those saddle-bags which are more for choppers but those waterproof with zips and multi pockets. I shortlisted 2 models, one cost $150, the other from Japan is $250 and the quality for the latter is superb. Very nice too....but I did not fix as mentioned I seldom ride so no point waste money.....just tot very stylo!

 

Now, to comment on your Nouvo problem. It sounds to me your rpm had tuned too high. Thus, u notice that even u your nouvo is stationary, you felt it was pushing forward. As a result, u applied your brakes right? So when moving off, u release your brake which explains the sound coming from the rear....it is the sound of screeching tyre and delay in moving off; as a result of skid.....Ihope u understand my explanation.....

 

To tune the carburettor do u mean to adjust the rpm? Yes, I would advise u to tune it lower to solve your problems I highlighted above....u have to remove the screws on the side board and find that screw to the caburettor....I'd seen my mechanic done it before....not difficult but need some DIY.....it's good to trial and error to know more about your bike....but if u are not those technical type of person, dun attempt to do it.....coz may end up crying and call for towing......

hmm..if u guys are talking about tuning of the timing for the idling,there is a small black round rubber in the middle (in between where u put ur legs).Take out the rubber,use a x screw driver to feel the screw catch,while the engine is on..then u can either turn clockwise or anti clockwise,u will hear the idling timing going up or down..hope this helps.. (btw,mine is nouvo mx,not sure for other nouvo model..)
