    Comparing 1st sample of both bikes 1,470km X-hot 150 and 1,526km G-MAX 200 For the 1st and 2nd sample which uses Q8 F1 10W-50 oil, to make it more interesting, i bring in my other 2008 PGO G-Max 200 scooter UOA for comparison because it was being used in the same commute, uses the exact same Q8...

    This post will be posted in my personal blog as well. The blackstone reports will be uploaded at the bottom. Coronavirus made China and Taiwan under the international spotlight. Whatever China says, I can tell you Taiwanese products are almost always better quality than Chinese products. Now I...

    2014 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 9,810km 6,096mi ZIC M9 4T 10W-40 full syn

    Introduction: This same engine is used on the 2013-2018 (euro 3 compliant), 2019-present (euro 4 compliant) ZX-6R 636 so this oil analysis should apply to those 2 generation bikes. I was always doubtful of the owner's manual oil interval of 12,000km (7,600mi) or 1 year, whichever came first. I...

    Horsepower VS Oil Change Interval (OCI)

    We come to this forum because we care about extending the life of engines and transmissions, and at the same time trying to save the earth (and money) by not throwing away good engine oil which can continue to be in service. With that out of the way, If a used oil of 3000 miles has similar wear...

    carburetor idle mixture adjustment interval

    My bike had a suspicious milege of 12000km (7450miles) on the clock when i got it back in Feb 2015 (i'm the 5th owner). It didn't have any service history. The under chassis and the body work looked older than the milege. So it's possible that it's overdue for valve clearance check.(valve...

    carburetor idle mixture adjustment interval

    I ride around town for 20 mins before adjusting. I didn't want to get it too hot such as riding highway, because if i adjust it with the engine super hot, the idle mixture will become too lean for slow town traffic as the engine wont be as hot during slow town traffic. so i am trying to find a...

    carburetor idle mixture adjustment interval

    I ride it to work everyday, totaling 43 miles per day. I don't think the screw got loose, because everytime I take off the seat to look at the mixture screw, the screw would be the same way as last time I adjusted it. (the flat head screw was angled the same way the last time I adjusted it.)...

    carburetor idle mixture adjustment interval

    I had 2 previous carburetted bikes. A Chinese made Lifan LF-125 bought brand new back in 2008 and a used 1993 Ninja 500 bought in 2009. Both bikes didn't need adjustment to the idle speed or the idle mixture screw. They all ran alright when warmed up. I got rid of them after riding each for a...

    Granville 5W40 Renault Clio 8815mi UK England

    Yes indeed. Both analysis are on the same batch of oil. Mysteriously, the iron level has reduced on the second analysis. Probably due to first time, i took the oil when engine is cold and the tube that was inserted through the dipstick tube and reached the bottom of the sump. Second time, tube...
