Two Brothers Titanium Muffler

My next modification was to install this muffler on my exhaust system. Work still in progress…

At my mother's kampung

 This is slip-on Two Brothers Titanium muffler with custom made exhaust pipe welded to the original twobros stainless steel pipe.

The oxygen sensor is still use by custom made the hole using similar size nut. Maybe if I have time I will change to full stainless steel pipe. But for now the looks is good and sounds very good. For normal traveling the P1-x powertip is used to reduce the sound by 8 dB.  

I like the muffler like this.

2k Metallic Green Paint

Some part of the bike was left unpainted by the manufacturer. So it’s my job to finish it. The paint work cost about RM240. The color differ slightly from the original. But at least 98% same.  

So this is the result.

 

Paint the box, increase visibility.

ER-6f with GIVI Box

Now installing a box or luggage carrier is quite tricky if you’re concern about its position which is too far behind u. So I decided to cut and shortened the monorack for about 5 inch. This cut & weld process were done by Ah Hong at his workshop. Even a Japanese car can be cut and paste to avoid custom duty, this Givi bracket is just a piece of cake (kacang goreng je…). It cost just RM50. This make it looks better and feel better than the original monorack. Here I include photos which shows clearly the difference before and after the monorack was shortened.

My father testing the bike. The lower photo is after the monorack was shortened.

The question here is how to open the seat? Easy. First unlock the seat. Pull up the back side a little, then push backward until the front latch/catch comes free. Then pull the front side up and forward. So instead of pulling the back side up straight way you have to pull it from the front side. This is due to the Givi monolock plate which is overlap by about 1.5 inch above the seat. After all you’re not going to open the seat often like the kapcai to fill the fuel.   

 Next is to install the stop light. This wiring was done at Givi Point Penang by Lan. But the LED light u have to buy separate from any car accessories shop. So you can custom made the light just like some of the scooter owner did to their bike.

That's my son Aiman Husaini. Givi Box and Givi Windshield.

 So the Givi box E340 (34 liter) and monorack 449fz modification were complete.

New ER-6f

This is just for fun. It is not a real magazine. Photo editing and videography are some of my hobbies besides motorcycling.

From C70 to EX650

Recite Bismillah & Doa first...

This is the bike that suits me. I have a B full licence. It is affordable, low maintanence cost and fuel economy for long distance. Unlike my old Shogun, I want to change my image to a professional rider, (menunggang dengan berhemah, ingat yang tersayang, ingat 5 sebelum 5…). Yes I still like my Shogun and I want to keep it as my hobby but unfortunately for some reason i’ve to let go it. So I sold my special Shogun to a boy from Puchong at a better price compared to trade in to the shop.

Anyway 2 weeks of using ER-6f is a very wonderful experience. It gave me a new image and a new spirit. I’m very excited and my strength to work hard increased as my bike horsepower increase. The bike is really easy to use for everyday use to go to work, shop, mosque for Friday prayer and I even brought my 1.5 yr old baby girl Anis on this bike around the school compound. She like it. But her twin sister Amna was scared of the bike. That’s the purpose of the bike, a safe, reliable, economical, fast, practical and efficient transport for me but at the same time as my hobby.

To make the bike more practical I have to install a luggage carrier or Givi box behind. But I plan to modify the bracket to move it forward so it will be position on top of the pillion’s seat not exceeding the tail of the bike. So the bike will become like single seat. This will increase stability and load limit up to 20 kg. According to the owner’s manual total load of the bile must not exceed 180 kg and the luggage must not exceed the length of the bike.

Me and Pak Tam, Kg Kepong, Terengganu. March 1985.

I can’t remember much whats in my mind at that time. But sure I must want to have a bike. I was 5 years old. So now after 25 years my dream come true.  The bike was a Honda Hawk 145cc. A very powerful bike at that time, speed can reach 150 km/h.

Same Me & Pak Tam, different time, place & motorcycle.

Ahah..! Ustaz wanna try? Becareful its heavy.

The PK HEM of SMSKB

So Ust Ishak asked me to take him around on the bike. Do you want to feel the pickup? I asked. Ok he said. Then I pull the throttle hard from 2nd gear it reach 90km/h in a split seconds. Oh no he said my tears come out. Its very quick. So that’s his 1st experience. Ha ha ha.. the teachers at the canteen watched us…

Convert to monoschock

Monoschock installed - looks sporty yet comfortable

 This is the last and final modification that I did on this bike. I’m satisfied about the comfort ride it gives because I set it to soft, so it absorbs all the bumps and small holes on the road. But this setting is not suitable for racing.

Carburetor

cara pasang carb

Disini saya ingin menunjukkan cara untuk memasang carburetor Mikuni VM22 atau orang biasa panggil carburetor TS. Carburetor asal ialah Mikuni VM18 lebih kecil daripada yang ini. Harganya dalan RM250 la sebab original made in Japan. Intake manifold tu kena buat lubang skru lain bertindan dengan lubang asal supaya muat nak masuk skrunya. (tak nampak dalam gambar)

Kerja-kerja ini di buat oleh mekanik dari Chua Motor, Ah Hong namanya.

Apabila throttle di buka

Air filter dipasang kemas

Stainless steel net bikin sendiri

Sebelum bawak ke bengkel saya dah modified siap kotak air filter dan element penapisnya. Ini penting sebab saya dah pakai carb ni kat moto MZ MantizZ125 tanpa air filter, bila hujan, air masuk, kalau tak hujan kotoran lain banyak masuk dan boleh merosakkan enjin. Lagipun motor ni bukan guna kat litar lumba, tapi nak pakai selalu dan nak dia tahan lama with low maintanence cost. Proses memasang air filter ni agak mudah, cuma luaskan sikit mulut nya yang asal. Lepastu potong kartrij kertas penapis asal, buang dan gantikan dengan stainless steel net, lekatkan guna super glue. Siap.

Di sebalik net tu...

Lubang tu kana buat ngam

Bila dah tutup nampak original, tu yang penting.

Model baru Suzuki

Januari 2007 saya telah membeli sebuah motosikal Suzuki Shogun 125 Sports di sebuah kedai motosikal di Tmn Malawati berhampiran dengan SM Sains Kuala Selangor. Masa tu saya baru kerja dan memerlukan sebuah motosikal untuk berulang-alik dari rumah, Klang ke Kuala Selangor. Jarak perjalanan adalah 55 km sehala. So sehari saya akan menunggang sejauh 110 km.

Sebab saya memilih model ini bukan kerana ia laju, tapi ada beberapa ciri yang memenuhi keperluan, citarasa serta hobi untuk membuat modifikasi. Ciri pertama mesti enjin 4 lejang 125 cc ke 150 cc. 110 cc saya tolak sebab agak kecil dan kurang power.  Saya dah puas pakai enjin 2 lejang Y125ZR waktu saya belajar di UIA dulu. Memang laju motor tu dan sesuai untuk orang bujang. Bila dah ada anak  isteri ni elok tukar 4T.

Tapi saya tak pilih 135LC, motor hot dan banyak kes kena curi. Enjin 4 lejang keluaran Modenas pula ada sedikit problem, mekanik saya pun tak recomend model baru Exite130. So saya tengok antara Suzuki dan Honda. Kalau nak jimat petrol enjin Wave 100/125 lebih jimat. Tapi kalau dah tukar karburetor besar motor apa pun tak jimat petrol jugak. So saya pilih Suzuki. Masa tu model Shogun Pro dah keluar di Thailand, tapi saya tak mau beli yang ada klutch sebab nak guna untuk bawak anak bersiar-siar. Lagi satu yang ada klutch ni orang perempuan susah nak bawak.

Untuk kegunaan saya ke tempat kerja, moto ni mesti ada raga yang besar dan ruang di bawah tempat duduk yang besar. Bawah seat saya simpan baju & seluar  hujan, plastik, kain buruk, tools yang lengkap untuk membuka tayar, vest keselamatan, dan rantai besi. Dalam raga saya letak beg dan kadang-kadang laptop sekolah. Laptop PPSMI fasa yang awal ni besar dan berat so kalau raga LC, Exite, Wave, ke tak muat la. Sebenarnya raga Shogun ni tak besar jugak tapi tahun 2008 Shogun RR keluar dan raganya besar macam RG Sports punya. Kebetulan maunting nya sama, so saya tukar la raga ni. Sesetengah motor bila kita tukar raga yang besar, dia jadi tak ngam dan tak boleh nak angkat seat dan biar seat tu stay tegak. Biasa terjadi pada Kriss.  Ada orang pasang box. Saya memang tak akan pasang box di belakang sebab tak sporty dan mengganggu kestabilan motor. Lagi pun saya dah beli RG Sport punya pemegang belakang aloi dan lengkap dengan lampu brek. Dulu masa zaman Y110ss pemegang jenis ni sangat popular, RG dan Kriss pun pakai yang local punya la.
