Bro Steven, how has it been with the V-Oiler? I had it installed to lube my chain. Please share your thoughts on it, if u dont mind.

Aimanb. Playing with my car blisten shocks.

With total 65K km on 2 V with Scottoiler, no problem. Cheap and easy with sae 90 gear oil.

Brother WCF1250 got me a good cheap USD $3 nokia E72/E71 holder he been using. Loctite it so should be good.






Also using the rubber pipe used for the Throttle bodies synch as dashboard vibration damper. Gap at the base for rain water drainage.


from black to Hi Ho silver away for the cheap plastic radguard.

the phone holder looks good.
did a short ride during the weekend to Melaka.
the BT 023 bridgestones work really well on both the wet and dry.

someone asked about the chain oiler.....it works really well especially during weather like we're having now. imagine the number of chain lube cans you would have to buy.

one last note, if you dont have a rain coat, its a great time to buy one and carry it all over the place.
just to share, i have a cheap givi rain coat ( not the cheapest one but just the cheaper one ) and the versys left fairing is a great place to fold the pants and hide it in till you need it. i'm trying to find somewhere to shove the jacket,any ideas?

I'm too lazy to go downstairs to check but if you can fold the pants and hide it in the left fairing, can't you do the same for the jacket in the right fairing?

Update, rode from Penang to KL yesterday.

Nokia E72 works well. Can't be used all the way during the ride as the headphones wire was dancing in the wind. keep the phone back in my aerostich pocket.

Intend to use this holder in KL for unknown places to visit. Tested that yesterday and it was good. Can't go speedy in KL. Too many speed cameras.

Clint, Good place for the pants. Not so good for the jacket for the right side cowling as the hot radiator cover is there. Under the seat, Brother? maybe a folded pouch bag behind the windsheild, will check and revert...

Great idea. Will also block some wind there.

why not a top box proper? That's where i keep mine. Am using givi boxes with givi rack. I swap between a 35 litre and a 45 litre box, depending on need, although i wished i could swap the 35 with a 24. Smaller box lesser drag.

it's a one piece where the end is moulded to the oem cowling.




















Had supper with the KL VOG Chapter hangout.










Would say the KL Bike week 2012 was more of a Harley gathering. Sigh....

i've had a top box for my past bikes, and yes they are convinient,
but the problem about having the top box is that sometimes with the riding pants, its hard to bend my legs to mount the bike. without the box , the leg can do a full swing....

only troublesome for guys with long legs. shorty asian like me dont have such problem . my only concern is not being able to flatfoot on the bike, lol.

but then again, yeah, i can imagine it.

Ordered a set of the new Bridgestone sport touring T30.
Should be here late next month.
http://www.bridgestone.com/corporate...012121401.html



Informed more grip than the BT023 so mileage will suffer slightly.
