I did not post for a long time as high season hits Thailand hard so this is my second post, finally.
7,xxx on the clock due to daily commute to work and I love the bike more and more!
Occasionally I do longer rides on Mainland cca 400 km/day and I feel very comfortable and not tired at all (just a little softer seat would be even better).
Few things which still make me a bit worried and I always look for answers here and other forums.
Yes I also got the fairing buzz like many others but I realized it depends how much you tighten the bolts on the windshield. If I tighten as hard as I can the buzz mostly stop because its fixated...little buzz I got used to it already its parallel twin at the end of the day.
Chain and other steel parts corrosion: this makes me worried the most
it is extremely humid and wet everywhere and I let it get rusty a bit ( did not expect that overnight it gets new rusty spots, so quick!).
I use WD40 to clean the chain, I always let it around 1-2 hours and then I clean with water and wipe off. Then I use chain lube to do the whole chain as suggested on many websites but still after few days I can see it is getting 'orange' again
. I recently bought expensive lubricant and it has been ok so far.
Last thing also common, both brakes are squeaking...I use Kawasaki part cleaner to do the discs and recently the dealer used sandpaper to clean the front brake pads - 2 days ok and after 2 days same story. Again, the roads here and the amount of dust here is enormous so it will never be top but still..you dont want to hear any other sound than the engine.
Anyway, more trips to come so I am excited to explore Malaysia and other nearby countries soon.
Ride safe and have fun!
