    Any Motorcycle Fans Here?

    Hey! I have a Honda CB400 Spec 3, I can answer some of your questions. 1. The XR is air cooled so since you'll be mostly in traffic I would change the oil every 2500km - 3000km or 6 months. Stay away from caltex. Mobil is much better. I use Motul however it can be expensive. 2. There should be an oil filter however I do not know so best to google your bike model and find out. 3. What I do for my chain is, Clean the chain and sprockets well with kerosene, dry it off, Then lubricate with chain lubricant or used engine oil then wipe off the excess. 4. Again you better google that information. 5. The stock compression ratio is 9.0:1 so 92 octane is fine. 6. DOT 4 but check with google again. 7. There should be a sticker on the swing arm with the tire pressure and chain slack. 8. Make sure your brake pads are good. Check your throttle play and cable lubrication. I usually ride my CB every 6 months or so if you're going to store it for a while make sure to keep the battery charged and spray some fogging oil into the engine cylinders to make sure no rust comes about. 9. I use Motul engine oil for the CB however your XR's requirements may be different. I buy most parts from either dilan motors or ebay. Hornet house also has some parts but mostly for hornets.

    Toyota Aqua Radiator fan not working

    Firstly I don't think your radiator fan could fail at 50,000km (I could be wrong). Check if the fuses are blown. If it's not the fuse, it's probably a sensor

    Toyota Vios

    Yup, make sure to change the oil correctly or the engine will sludge up quickly!

    Volkswagen Bora 2.0 Burning Oil

    Thanks for the reply, I checked the engine for leaks and fixed the one leak I did find and cleaned out the pcv valve however the problem persists. I was told by a Euro garage to not put in thicker oil as that may damage it further due to the increased oil pressure from the thicker oil. If it gets really bad I'll just swap in the new engine.

    Volkswagen Bora 2.0 Burning Oil

    Yeah I'm very much considering swapping in the new engine. Do you think I could sell off the old one for a decent price? by that I don't mean making money.

    Volkswagen Bora 2.0 Burning Oil

    I was hoping to use the current one until it dies but now that it seems very likely I might just swap in the new one. I just don't like the hassle of finding a decent mechanic and doing all the legal changes.
  7. Hey guys, So recently my VW started consuming oil at an unusual rate. I assumed it was due to me using the wrong grade engine oil (Was using 10W40 but was actually supposed to use 5W30) but I recently changed over to the correct oil grade 5W30 full synthetic but the problem seems to have gotten worse. Right now the mileage is 194,000km and I have been using the car since 155k. This issue only started recently. It's consuming oil at around a 1.3 liters per 1000km, there's no smoke from the exhaust but it does smell like it's burning oil. What do you think it is? Bad valve guide seals? worn piston rings? Bad compression? (I don't think it's bad compression because I can still reach 200kmph without too much effort) The good news is I have a spare engine with only 40k on it which I imported by mistake (Long story) but before I swap In the engine, I was hoping to at least make it to 250k on the ODO Thanks in advance
  8. Would I pay 2.45m for a 15-17 year old civic? no but that's up to you. If you think it's worth it, go for it Having maintenance records is always a good thing. Even if the car has done 300k, if it has been maintained properly you don't have to worry much. However personally for piece of mind I would change out all the fluids and filters just to be on the safe side.
  9. empty your tank and pump 95 octane. it's knocking because of pre-detenation. 2NZ-FE engine has a compression ratio of 10.5:1. 92 is therefore ideal for lower compression ratio engines (generally low performance engines with a *ratio below 8.5:1), whereas 95 and 98 (*Ratios between 8.5:1 and 10:1) are more stable and suitable for high compression engines. Edit - ok i saw in the previous replies you have mentioned using 95 octane. ignore this then

    Restomods by Dr.Kalum is a great service! They do superb restorations

    ECU issue in Toyota Vitz

    Owned a 2012 Allion before and serviced it at the maharagama TL since new. Never had any issues and for an oil change + extras service it costs max 16k. Go in and ask how much it is to get a scan usually they won't charge just to scan it, I've had CEL's checked for free there plenty of times.

    Complex Cash flow issue hybrid vs Vitz

    Don't stress yourself financially. Till you can afford it buy something cheaper! My first car was a '99 Pug 405 that I bought for 400,000 without any financing. only when I could AFFORD it did I sell it to buy another car. Don't go into debt to keep appearances buddy! best lesson I learned!

    Engine capacity in CR

    I bought a motorcycle last year and the specified engine capacity was 399cc however when registering the CR says 400cc. I Don't think it'll be a big problem.
