Inside Yamaha Nuovo Elegance / Nuovo LC

Magneto configuration

Piston

Piston, bearing and crankshaft

Cylinder head and valve

Cylinder block

Yamaha Nuovo LC in Malaysia is also known as Nuovo Elegance in Thailand. Thais get their Elegance long before we got it here in Malaysia that is on February 2008 (we got in August). At first I thought the engine configuration is the same with Yamaha LC135, but it is not. It can be seen with the 2-valve system for Nuovo LC, where there is 4-valve system for LC135.
There is a lot more picture can be seen here.

Yamaha Vega-R DB from Indonesia: New Lagenda for Malaysia?

Yamaha Vega-R DB

Yamaha Jupiter Z or Yamaha Lagenda in Malaysia

I have stumble upon these images when I browse to official Yamaha Motor Indonesia website. At first, I thought Yamaha Vega-R DB is Yamaha Jupiter Z/Lagenda, but it isn't.
So, I compare the Yamaha Vega-R DB with Yamaha Jupiter Z specification and found out that it share the same cylinder size (cc), same body and same suspension setup. I'm guessing this Yamaha Vega-R DB is the another facelift (or bodylift?) version of Yamaha Jupiter Z. Here in Malaysia, we already have Yamaha Lagenda, Yamaha Lagenda Z and the latest version of it that is Yamaha Lagenda ZR.
The differences between Yamaha Vega-R DB and Yamaha Jupiter Z can be seen on the front head lamp and new fairing design.
If my guess is correct, then we'll have new version of Yamaha Lagenda in the next few months.
Official Yamaha Motor Indonesia can be accessed here.

Yamaha Sniper/Sniper HC(Hand Clutch) Philippines Website

Yamaha Motor Phillippines Website for Sniper

It is good for us to know about the other version of Yamaha LC135 since it can give us a lot of ideas for our next modification.
Philippines got the Yamaha Sniper for automatic clutch and Yamaha Sniper HC for manual hand clutch.
The information given here is not very detailed as compared to yamahat135.com which is the official website from Yamaha specifically for Yamaha LC135.
What I like about this website is that we can look for the different design of the sticker and stripe of the Yamaha Sniper. Maybe we can buy the sticker from Philippines for simple and easy coverset mod.
Get yourself there by clicking on the picture.

Use Reverse Osmosis Water to Clean Your Bike for Spotless Clarity

Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System from Apec Water

Reverse osmosis water as we know does not contain anything inside it except H2O only. H2O is a volatile compound means that it can vapourise well at any temperature above its boiling point. This property of volatility makes it dry when wash our car. But if we are using normal tap water, we can see spot and streak on our car after the water have dried out. The spot and streak are actually minerals and contaminant that is normally existed in the normal tap water such as calcium, magnesium, silica, iron etc.
So, using reverse osmosis water to clean our car and bike really make sense since it does not contain anything else other than H2O only.
Perfect clean car, spotless and streak-free surface is also good for waxing and polishing since it does not contain any metals from the water to make the paint surface to be scratched.
In fact, reverse osmosis water is used in luxury auto detailing company since they are looking for nothing other perfection.
If you have reverse osmosis water filter and like to have perfect clarity spotless clean bike, this is the time to use it!

X1R: The Another Version of Yamaha LC135

Yamaha X1R Thailand Black


Yamaha X1R Thailand Blue

Yamaha X1R Thailand Yellow Showroom Bike

Yamaha X1R Front Head Lamp

Yamaha X1R Rear Lamp

Yamaha X1R Thailand version of Yamaha LC135 is a very special model. It has front and rear brake disc whereby most of the other version only has front disc brake such as Yamaha Sniper (Bermuda) and T135(Europe).
The design of the bike is also very different when compared all of the other version of the LC135. It look much more naked, meaner and more manly. The rear lamp is designed well to suit the overall radical look presented by the absence of front head lamp on the head cover. The front head lamp is being replaced to lower position that is on the fairing. This remind me the look of new Nuovo that is Nuovo LC. It is good design and I think a lot of Yamaha LC135 like to have their bike to resemble this look.
Yamaha X1R also have another version in Thailand that is Yamaha Spark 135i, and as the name suggest it is being equipped with fuel injection.
For those who are looking to convert their bike to resemble X1R, read the post here.

BRT Tune-Up Racing CDI Dual Band Unit for Yamaha LC 135

BRT Tune-Up Racing CDI Dual Band Unit for Yamaha LC 135

Bintang Racing Team Tune-Up Racing CDI Unit


This CDI unit is a dual band version where you can have to setting, whether to have normal or tuned-up riding style.

The price is at RM480

Version of BRT Racing CDI Unit

There are three version of BRT CDI unit that is Standard Tune-Up(ST), Tune-Up Racing(TU) and Racing Kompetisi(RK). The most CDI unit used by most Yamaha LC135 is the TU version. This because it has the fan control, thus can give better cooling to the engine. RK is not recommended even though it has advantage of 16-programmable point of TDC because this one is used mainly only for real purpose racing in track. And you should also know that this CDI unit cost more than RM600.

The fan control connector is on the right side of the green wire.

If you want to know what is CDI, read my previous post here. Remember, CDI unit is the last thing you need to do after you have modified your bike namely the carburetor, block, piston etc.

This item are available for sale here: http://motomalaya.net/store/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=44

Yamaha LC 135 Racing Engine Block 58.5mm

Yamaha LC 135 Racing Engine Block 58.5mm
(Click to enlarge)

Racing engine block is an oversize diameter of the piston and must be able to contain extreme heat and pressure inside it. This racing engine block for Yamaha LC135/Sniper/X1R is made from Taiwan. The durability of if is known and able to sustain long distance and endurance from the biker.
This racing engine block kit consist of engine block, piston, piston ring and piston pin.
There are two sizes available for the engine block that is 58.5mm and 60.0mm. The standard size of the Yamaha LC135 engine block is 54mm.
Oversize block gives more fuel to burn inside the combustion chamber, thus giving more power. Also, heat is generate more than standard condition with standard engine block. This one doesn't give any problem to the LC135 since it is liquid cooled.
Tuning of carburetor is also essential when you change the engine block. What is needed to be tuned is the main jet and pilot jet only. Standard main jet for Yamaha LC135 is 105 and pilot jet 20.0. So, what you need to do is to change that main jet and pilot jet to a bigger size. Main jet upgrade size is available in 110, 115, 120 and 125. Changing to the maximum size is not always the best idea. Try 110 first, then upgrade to larger size until you get a good speed all around and smooth running engine. If not, your carb is going to be too rich or too lean with fuel. Pilot jet upgrade comes in size 22.5 and 25.0. Also, try the small one first until you get the best mix. Tuning carb is essential to get the most efficient fuel delivery to the engine block combustion chamber.
After that, you also need to change your exhaust to high performance exhaust to get a better airflow of the exhaust gas. AHM, YY Pang etc is a good exhaust to choose from.
Thanks for reading and happy tuning!

NOB1 Silent Sport Series Exhaust for Lagenda/LC135 from Indonesia

NOB1 Silent Sport Series Exhaust for Lagenda/LC135 from Indonesia

There are a lot of aftermarket exhaust nowadays for most cub bikes such as AHM, YY Pang, NOB1, SR7 and lot more.
Most of us change the exhaust are whether to upgrade the performance of the bike or to have it looks good. But this one from NOB1 model Silent Sport Series seems like having another target market. They target bikers who want to use high performance exhaust but wants to keep the sound level down. You can get top speed from it but it doesn't produce any sound (that is what is stated on the brochure).
NOB1 is an exhaust brand from Indonesia. The price for this exhaust is higher than AHM and YY Pang which is made in Malaysia. I guess the price is higher due to import taxes and delivery charges.
Even though this exhaust is silent, you should know that this is racing performance parts. So, makes no mistake about its power.
This exhaust is available in most bike shops. Price? Check it yourself!

The muffler has also been increased to two pieces, thus making it looks meaner and more macho. You can also notice a lot of modification has been done the bike such as rear disc brake, carbon fibre style coverset and racing foot rest.
