By then its 7.20pm...its dark...i can't be taking out the carb oready...drag the bike out of the beach...when already on stable ground...toggle the bike to the main road and straight to Mersing town which is about 25km from the beach...hoping it is still open...
We reached the town at 8.30pm..everywhere is closed...thinking very hard for a solution..tried to revive the bike once again,but failed...still cant get access to the sparkplug well you know why...

so,the solution,to ride slowly toggling the bike...about 40km-50km/hr.
Richard did the towing from Mersing Up to the T junction that seperates Mersing,Kota Tinggi and Kluang...

Travelled for a total of 150km using toggle rope...took us 6hrs to reach home...:banghead:

looks like you guys were having some serious fun! theres nothing better than getting together with a bunch of doods and tearing it up! (not destroying sh*t mind you)....

That guy submarined his bike in salt water!?!?!?1 :D :D :busted: :busted: That sucks!

I submarined my klr650...couldn't pull the plug so it temporarily hydrolocked while i was kicking it over... luckily the the autodecomp took care of that :banghead: After cranking it for like 10 min it fired up....it was spitting H2O out of the exhaust for like 10min! everyone got a god chuckle. Drove it home about 15 miles and drained about 5 quarts of "oil" that looked like weak chocolate milk (that bike isnt suppose to have 5 quarts of "oil" in it!). The bike ran fine after that, at least I think it still does, some thief has it now....its his problem now :ride:

just a little update on my pig...

bike has just gone through some overhaul...milege is 76,000km.
The eating up of EO and noise even after the replacement of the chain tensioner got me worried..

i love the pig..so meaning...i am going all out to make it into a great riding machine once again.even though i have to starve myself...:ride:

Got the spareparts like piston,rings,headgasket,valve seals,timing chain and the whole lot of carburator seals.

Actually after close examine into the engine,the original piston and block walls is in good shape...only that really beaten up is the piston rings..the valves,cam,all great...except alot of carbon and thick ones has deposited and settle down at the valves and the head..

So since i've already bought the new piston,might as well get it fix.
Posted Image

installing the new timing chain.
Posted Image

very much toast valves..all were cleaned thouroughly after this.
Posted Image
Posted Image

modded H&B sideracks to the bike.and here's my friend riding the bike after the mods.
Posted Image
Posted Image:smirk:

both my bike and his.
Posted Image

Fitment of the alu sidepanniers.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Need to do some alteration though to the sideracks..need to narrowing the width...and will be fitting the rally fairings back.once this is done,last mods...the dual exhaust.then...the leisure riding will begin....:)

I remember crossing the Strait of Singapore into Malaysia and catching a flight to Kota Bharu, driving around Kota Bharu with all these Mosques and then getting a boat out to some island which was beautiful. This was a few years ago now. All the while I was saying, 'damn, I need a dirt bike'!

Good to see you dudes out and about.

Keep it real boys !

how much the cost would be for you to ship or fly your Pig here?

anyways,singapore has very limited land for playground...but it would just be good enuff for a sunday morning blast and settle by early noon and have a good lunch with good soda...

if you really want to see great places and trails,Malaysia would be fun...but be sure to have a local guide...the jungles are thick and dense...not wise to venture of if you're not familiar...

Different grounds have different rules...:)

Hi...its been awhile hibernating...

since the pig have been overhauled,i've not been doing any rides on it...it is still running in...

During one of the XR's meeting...a friend just bought the 650...and got another 650 to join the meeting..

Posted Image
Posted Image

So while i am doing the running-in,i spend some time fixing up the fairings once again after its been redone on the fibreglass work on some broken tabs...
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
The engine now pumps up almost like a brand new bike...but i am watching the speedo most of the time not to exceed its limit on the run-in.no more strange loud noises...i think the timing chain must have been the culprit..and when i am using it for a ride in town,i just put on a topbox..notice i have changed the rear tailight as well...slightly smaller.
Posted Image

and here comparing the Pig and the NX650dominator during my negotiation on a deal.
Posted Image
Posted Image

and currently,i am too busy cleaning up the dominator and replacing some wear and tear parts and putting back the fairing right back that i have forgotten that i have the XR650R...:prof:
