Radenci (Slovenia) 31.08.2011
Rok'n roll in the UK Spending the most of his free time in his van during this year, travelling from one show to another allover the Europe, Rok Bagoros is really starting to enjoy  living his dream, as a professional stunt rider. He recently hit the shores  of England for the first time, with clear purpose to entertain the masses at the famous NASS music and extreme sports festival. Using the new KTM 125 Duke street bike, Rok put on a number of high-octane performances throughout the weekend and turned out to be the real crowd pleaser. Rok is performing  his tricks on almost standard 125 Duke. The only diference between standard bike and his stunting machine is in details as wheelie bar, pegs and controls. Check out the movie where you can relive the atmosphere of adrenaline pumping weekend. Stay tuned for new upcoming video reports from all over Europe.

2011 Yamaha YZF-R15 Launching 6 Sept in India

20110831-085812.jpg Bikers in India will get a new model of Yamaha YZF-R15 this 6 Sept 2011. Usually this means the bike is for 2012 model. In Malaysia, it is named Yamaha FZ150i whereby in Indonesia it is called Yamaha Vixion. In both countries, the bike came in naked version only. The one in India is the most sought after design that is the full-fairing superbike version. Many FZ150i in Malaysia have modified their bike to be like the YZF-R15 by importing the bodykits or coversets from India. For Indian bikers, enjoy your new ride! We in Malaysia just hope it will be launched here too.

Aprilia RS4 125: 4-stroke Euro 3 Engine

[caption id="attachment_5778" align="aligncenter" width="449" caption="Aprilia RS4 125"][/caption] Aprilia RS125 is my all time favourite of 2-stroke bike. It features a design that resembles it larger capacity brother with power of almost 30hp.  That's a huge amount of power for a 125cc engine. This time it is the moment for it the Aprilia RS4 125, which is a 4-stroke 125cc bike. The tech specs for the engine are as good as it can gets. It features DOHC, FI, Magneti Marelli ECU, 6-speed gearbox, 4-piston front caliper with 300mm and many more. Anyway, it is much less powerful than the 2-stroke RS125. Some says it is only at 15hp. Technical specification, official overview and 8 more pictures after the jump

The Vixion has been modded to resemble the YZF-R15, but the colour choice and minimalist style makes this Vixion is far better than the original version of YZF-R15. Congratulation on the work well done bro! Check out more of his work here:

Tyre Safety and Maintenance Tips for 'Balik Kampung' by MIROS

[caption id="attachment_5667" align="aligncenter" width="589" caption="Tyre Safety and Maintenance Tips"][/caption] For our international readers, 'balik kampung' means going back to hometown. This happens everytime when there is holiday, usually for Aidilfitri, which is coming this 30 or 31 August. This tyre safety and maintenance tips is compiled by MIROS (Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research) specifically to motorcycle and scooter and being given away to me while I was driving for 'balik kampung'. Two-wheels rider are 15 times much more likely to involved in accident and I think this guide is a good thing by MIROS. It is written in Malay language, but lets just translate it to English for the sake of all readers. So, here goes: Tyre Maintenance Guide: 1. Always check the tyre pressure once a week or much more frequent if the tyre is used for long distance riding daily. 2. Use pressure gauge to check the tyre pressure on cold condition. 3. Do not use worn tyres. 4. Do not ride with excessive weight limit as stated by the tyre sidewall. (Refer to Table A). 5. Follow the speed limit on the road and apply safe riding skill. [caption id="attachment_5670" align="aligncenter" width="581" caption="How to Read Tyre Information on the Sidewall, Table A and Table B (click to enlarge)"][/caption] Tyre Buying Guide: 1. Make sure the tyre purchased have the MS or E label. 2. Change the tyre when the tread touched the warning zone 'Tread Wear Indicator'(TWI). [caption id="attachment_5673" align="aligncenter" width="423" caption="Tread Wear Indicator"][/caption]

3. Tyre need to be replaced if:

i) cracked

ii) uneven wear

iii) bump on the tread or sidewall

4. Good tyre choice are important for your safety, comfort, handling and economy. (size, load index and speed rating)

Note: I wish you all have a safe journey. Be careful and think of your loved ones!

Happy holidays and SELAMAT HARI RAYA!

Yamaha 135LC 6-speed Modification

You have read the title right. Yamaha 135LC Extreme Spirit with 5-speed are able to be converted to 6-speed with minimal modification to the engine. This is due to the fact that the engine shared a lot of the component from its brother with 6-speed like the YZF-R15, FZ150i and Byson(Indonesia). Modifmania.com, an Indonesia-based blog has revealed the modification for all us to see and many thanks to them for sharing the valuable information. I think this the beginning of 135LC 5-speed extreme modification. More and more modification will come out and that just means more fun will come through. Check out for more info after the jump

Y-Teq Chain Lube

20110820-025846.jpg Chain lube are much better than the normal engine oil that we usually use to lubricate the chain and sprocket of our bike. It is much better because chain lube have the all important 'anti-fling' properties. Anti-fling means that the lubricant oil applied to the chain will not fly or splatter to the surrounding. If not, you'll get a lot mess at the wheel and to the swing arm. Y-Teq chain lube works by providing a thin anti-fling film after you spray it to the chain. The application is easy as the long spray nozzle is provided. After that, you need to wait about 30 minutes before you can start riding. This is to ensure the chain lube adheres properly to the chain. This one I bought at RM10 for 200ml at the time of promotion. I also seen one chain lube with the brand of Repsol at RM55.

[caption id="attachment_5454" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Normal bicycle fitted with Bike Motor Kits"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_5455" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="80cc/66cc SD STINGER Bike Engine Kit"][/caption]

This 2-stroke 80cc/66cc SD STINGER Bike Engine Kit will convert almost any normal bicycle into a motorized engine bike. The engine produces 3.5hp and propel the bike to 30-40km/h. It is easy to install and all of the item for the modification is included. The company said that it only takes about 2-3 hour to install it to any bike. Also, the kit is affordable enough at USD179.99 (MYR537) so that almost anyone can have this modification done to their bike.

I like to this modification to my bike at home, but as far as I checked their website, the shipping is not available internationally. I have emailed them about it and I hope they can send this kit to Malaysia.

2011 Suzuki Axelo S (Auto Clutch) and Axelo R (Manual Hand Clutch) 125 in Malaysia

[caption id="attachment_5436" align="aligncenter" width="550" caption="2011 Suzuki Axelo R 125 Blue (manual hand clutch)"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_5437" align="aligncenter" width="550" caption="2011 Suzuki Axelo R 125 Black (auto clutch)"][/caption] Suzuki Malaysia has recently launched a new bike for their line-up that is the Suzuki Axelo. This bike is equipped with 4-stroke 125cc engine that is said to focus for power and fuel efficiency. The compression ratio for this bike is quite high at 9.6:1, compared to Yamaha Lagenda 115ZR at 9.3:1 and Honda Wave RS at 9.0:1. Higher compression ratio can give higher power without the additional displacement needed. Simply said, it means it gives more powerful kick at each of the power stroke. Suzuki Axelo comes in two model Axelo S and Axelo R. The latter (Axelo R) features manual hand clutch version which is a great addition to this line-up since it provides better traction control for sportier riding style. The Axelo S comes in automatic clutch for easier operation in city driving. One more great features available from this Axelo is the usage of rear disc brake for both models. This will add more safety for riders as disc brake are definitely better than drum brakes in terms of power and maintenance. The Axelo R as I can see is only available in blue colour, while the Axelo S version has three colours to choose from that is red, blue and black. Check out more specs and price of the Suzuki Axelo after the jump
