  • Re: Oil changes

    gaz Another Kymco - this time an X-Town 300i - so far so good. Similar layout to the 350i with some improvements - seat a little better - instrument back lighting better. Screen a little higher and easier to clean and remove. Underseat light now has a timed cut off (in case you forget to put the seat down I guess). Rear tyre slightly broader - ...
  • Re: Oil changes

    Pyra - Ironically, upon inspection my new scooter does have an oil filter even though the owners manual doesn&#39;t show it to be so. Sign of the times?
  • Oil changes

    What are the merrits between changing oils strickly as per schedule - or earlier or later? Now that we live in a world of synthetic oils can scheduled oil changes be varied - should we even consider it? I am now the owner of a new bike that has no oil filter and a reduced oil schedule span (every 2000kms) - Mineral oil 5W-50 API SJ or better. ...
  • Too many !

    About 5/6 years ago&nbsp; a study by Sydney University on two-wheel rider safety concluded that; If a rider wore a white/ yellow helmet he/she stood a 10% better chance of not being involved in an accident. Wearing a High Visi safety vest increased the odds by a further 40%. I took notice of that report and have adopted both recommendations ever ...
  • Re: Vozz - Rear opening helmets

    &nbsp; Just so you know - The &#39;rear-opening&#39; type helmet is currently being used in MotoGP by at least one rider.
  • Vozz - Rear opening helmets

    &nbsp; Has anyone experienced using one of the new-type rear opening helmets? There is a demonstration video on YouTube, but I am unable to locate supply/cost; Apparently it is an Australian design. Also - What do you think of the idea? Q. What if emergency crews are untrained in removal (there is a button on both sides that must be pressed ...
  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    Chicaboo My 350i is matte white - I bought it because I find the alternative dark grey somewhat depressing and visually a danger on the road. At first I too felt that the matte finish might be a problem but in just under a year (9000+kms) I have not found it not to be so at all. The secret? LEAVE IT ALONE! When the odd cleaning occaion arises the ...
  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    Pyra - Service intervals on the Kymco 350i are 5000Kms - 10,000kms (plug) - 20,000 Kms for a replacement drive belt.
  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    Aspro Boy - Apparently the the Downtown 350i has gone UP in price to a RRP of $7950 + ORC - they were $7490&nbsp; when I bought last year (I got one for that price ride-away - however - haggle on that information and you will probably get one at the old price - probably in grey colour.
  • Re: Bigger is not always better

    Chicaboo - I agree with what you are saying about the power-to-weight advantage of the 350i and that must be part of the decision making information. However, for an old bloke like me who uses a scooter to meander around the Adelaide hills taking in views on a stop/start basis my criteria encompasses &quot;sufficient&#39; power and the X-City will ...
