  1. Not happy with this result. I thought of polo, punto, i20, etios. Figo is not that much good car than the list above.
  2. It is not about changing the engine oil, here it is explained about flushing out the old engine carbons and dirts., then installing the engine oil additive along with the valvoline. Moreover, mechanics can figureout easily by riding the bike once, donno which type of technicians are at the roadside nowadays. I am sure there is no prob at the mechanical parts.Otherwise, finally the clutch issue has to be considered for our sake.
  3. Yesterday, mugen mufflers were fitted to one of my friend"s skoda superb. NO peppy noise were found, no changes in the sound except some little different. but acceleration pedals were changed freely, car"s acc increases than the old power. Really some more reasearches has to be done for the real truth.
  4. 1. Assume you're invisible. To a lot of drivers, you are. Never make a move based on the assumption that another driver sees you, even if you've made eye contact. Bikes don't register to the four-wheel mind. 2. Be considerate. The consequences of strafing the jerk du jour or cutting him off, start out bad and get worse. Pretend it was your grandma and smile. 3. Dress for the crash, not the pool or the pub. Sure, McDonalds is a 5-minute trip, but nobody plans to eat pavement. Modern mesh gear means 100-degree heat is no excuse for a T-shirt and board shorts. 4. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Assume that car across the intersection will turn across your bow when the light goes green, with or without a turn signal. 5. Leave your ego at home. The only people who really care if you were faster on the freeway will be the officer and the judge. 6. Pay attention. Yes, there is a half-naked girl on the billboard. That shock does feels squishy. Meanwhile, you could be drifting toward Big Trouble. Focus. 7. Mirrors only show you part of the picture. Never change direction without turning your head to make sure the coast really is clear. 8. Be patient. Always take another second or three before you pull out to pass, ride away from a curb or into freeway traffic from an on-ramp. It's what you don't see that gets you. That extra look could save your butt. 9. Watch your closing speed. Passing cars at twice their speed or changing lanes to shoot past a row of stopped cars is just asking for trouble. 10. Beware the verge and the merge. A lot of nasty surprises end up on the sides of the road: empty McDonalds bags, nails, TV antennas, ladders, you name it. Watch for debris on both sides of the road. 11. Left-turning cars remain a leading killer of motorcyclists. Dont assume someone will wait for you to dart through the intersection. They're trying to beat the light, too. 12. Beware of cars running traffic lights. The first few seconds after a signal light changes are the most perilous. Look both ways before barging into an intersection. 13. Check your mirrors. Do it every time you change lanes, slow down or stop. Be ready to move if another vehicle is about to occupy the space youd planned to use. 14. Mind the gap. Remember Drivers Ed? One seconds worth of distance per 10 mph is the old rule of thumb. Better still, scan the next 12 seconds ahead for potential trouble. 15 Beware of racers. They're quick and aggressive. Dont assume you've beaten one away from a light or outpaced it in traffic and change lanes without looking. You could end up as a civic hood ornament. 16. Excessive entrance speed hurts. Its the leading cause of single-bike accidents on twisty roads and racetracks. In Slow, Out Fast is the old adage, and it still works. Dialing up corner speed is safer than scrubbing it off. 17. Dont trust that deer whistle. Ungulates and other feral beasts prowl at dawn and dusk, so heed those big yellow signs. If youre riding in a target-rich environment, slow down and watch the shoulders. 18. Learn to use both brakes. The front does most of your stopping, but a little rear brake on corner entry can calm a nervous chassis. 19. Keep the front brake covered always. Save a single second of reaction time at 60 mph and you can stop 88 feet shorter. Think about that. 20. Look where you want to go. Use the miracle of target fixation to your advantage. The motorcycle goes where you look, so focus on the solution instead of the problem. 21. Keep your eyes moving. Traffic is always shifting, so keep scanning for potential trouble. Dont lock your eyes on any one thing for too long unless youre actually dealing with trouble. 22. Think before you act. Careful whipping around that micra going 7 kph in a 30-kph zone or you could end up with your head in the drivers side door when he turns into the driveway right in front of you. 23. Raise your gaze. Its too late to do anything about the 20 feet immediately in front of your fender, so scan the road far enough ahead to see trouble and change trajectory. 24. Get your mind right in the driveway. Most accidents happen during the first 15 minutes of a ride, below 40 mph, near an intersection or driveway. Yes, that could be your driveway. 25. Come to a full stop at that next stop sign. Put a foot down. Look again. Anything less forces a snap decision with no time to spot potential trouble. 26. Never dive into a gap in stalled traffic. Cars may have stopped for a reason, and you may not see why until its too late to do anything about it. 27 Dont saddle up more than you can handle. If you weigh 95 pounds, avoid that 795-pound cruiser. If you're 5-foot-5, forget those towering adventure-tourers. 28. Watch for car doors opening in traffic. And smacking a car thats swerving around some goofb*lls open door is just as painful. 29. Dont get in an intersection rut. Watch for a two-way stop after a string of four-way intersections. If you expect cross-traffic to stop, there could be a painful surprise when it doesnt. 30. Stay in your comfort zone when youre with a group. Riding over your head is a good way to end up in the ditch. Any bunch worth riding with will have a rendezvous point where youll be able to link up again. 31. Give your eyes some time to adjust. A minute or two of low light heading from a well-lighted garage onto dark streets is a good thing. Otherwise, youre essentially flying blind for the first mile or so 32. Master the slow U-turn. Practice. Park your butt on the outside edge of the seat and lean the bike into the turn, using your body as a counterweight as you pivot around the rear wheel. 33. Who put a stop sign at the top of this hill? Dont panic. Use the rear brake to keep from rolling back down. Use Mr. Throttle and Mr. Clutch normally and smoothly to pull away. 34. If it looks slippery, assume it is. A patch of suspicious pavement could be just about anything. Butter Flavor Crisco? Gravel? Mobil 1? Or maybe its nothing. Better to slow down for nothing than go on your head. 35. Bang! A blowout! Now what? No sudden moves. The motorcycle isnt happy, so be prepared to apply a little calming muscle to maintain course Ease back the throttle, brake gingerly with the good wheel and pull over very smoothly to the shoulder. Big sigh. 36. Drops on the faceshield? Its raining. Lightly misted pavement can be slipperier than when its been rinsed by a downpour, and you never know how much grip there is. Apply maximum-level concentration, caution and smoothness. 37. Emotions in check? To paraphrase Mr. Ice Cube, chickity-check yoself before you wreck yoself. Emotions are as powerful as any drug, so take inventory every time you saddle up. If youre mad, sad, exhausted or anxious, stay put. 38. Wear good gear. Wear stuff that fits you and the weather. If youre too hot or too cold or fighting with a jacket that binds across the shoulders, you're dangerous. Its that simple. 39. Leave the iPod at home. You wont hear that cement truck in time with Spinal Tap cranked to 11, but they might like your headphones in intensive care. 40. Learn to swerve. Be able to do two tight turns in quick succession. Flick left around the bag of briquettes, then right back to your original trajectory. The bike will follow your eyes, so look at the way around, not the briquettes. Now practice till its a reflex. 41. Be smooth at low speeds. Take some angst out, especially of slow-speed maneuvers, with a bit of rear brake. It adds a welcome bit of stability by minimizing unwelcome weight transfer and potentially bothersome driveline lash. 42. Flashing is good for you. Turn signals get your attention by flashing, right? So a few easy taps on the pedal or lever before stopping makes your brake light more eye-catching to trailing traffic. 43. Intersections are scary, so hedge your bets. Put another vehicle between your bike and the possibility of someone running the stop sign/red light on your right and you cut your chances of getting nailed in half. 44. Tune your peripheral vision. Pick a point near the center of that wall over there. Now scan as far as you can by moving your attention, not your gaze. The more you can see without turning your head, the sooner you can react to trouble. 45. All alone at a light that wont turn green? Put as much motorcycle as possible directly above the sensor wire usually buried in the pavement beneath you and located by a round or square pattern behind the limit line. If the light still wont change, try putting your kickstand down, right on the wire. You should be on your way in seconds. 46. Every-thing is harder to see after dark. Adjust your headlights, Carry a clear faceshield and have your game all the way on after dark, especially during commuter hours. 47. Dont troll next toor right behind Mr. Peterbilt. If one of those 18 retreads blows upwhich they do with some regularity it de-treads, and that can be ugly. Unless you like dodging huge chunks of flying rubber, keep your distance. 48. Take the panic out of panic stops. Develop an intimate relationship with your front brake. Seek out some safe, open pavement. Starting slowly, find that fine line between maximum braking and a locked wheel, and then do it again, and again. 49. Make your tires right. None of this stuff matters unless your skins are right. Dont take em for granted Make sure pressure is spot-on every time you ride. Check for cuts, nails and other junk they might have picked up, as well as general wear. 50. Take a deep breath. Count to 10. Smile at the *****. Forgetting some clowns 80-mph indiscretion beats running the risk of ruining your life, or ending it. source:personal mail -dinesh(always the racer wins atlast)
  5. Next generation HONDA CIVIC caught testing in KSA This is the next generation of the civic, so no need to be searching for the new civic pics anymore. source: personal mail -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
  6. alok@ Valvoline is better than castrol power too! Try it. On the otherhand, You can use the Shell brand too, but its not satisfied my needs when i used at my zma and r15. I have lot of experiances regarding the superbikes. But i came to india just recently. I am reading every indian bikes/cars everyday. I restored one 2000model CBZ which started to give same probs day by day, i used this same method. -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
  7. Shan. Car driving skill is one of the important thing which will be interested once if you are fully welly knowledged person. you see, drivers can be divided into slow, medium, fast. Seems like it looks easy to understand while reading it, but ofcourse it is not. The Gear Shift is the major character play at every car/bike. For every type of driving, You must bring the gear lever to the first gear if the car comes below to the 10kmph-12kmph speed. The new cars wont say any objections if you accelerate at the 2nd gear with the standing or slow moving speed below to the 12kmph speed. but plz dont use this method. The rpms should be raised at the low gears , only if they car is gonna be raced or attain high speed sooner. Use the 1st gear(till 13kmph speed), 2nd gear (15 to 30), 3rd gear (30 to 40). 4th gear(40 to 55) 5th gear(55- so on). this is the recommended speed and gear shifting for the commercial driving whatever the roadlane is. So dont forget to minimize the gears step by step for decreasing into the proper speed, also never jump the gears from 1st to 3rd or 5th to 2nd etc. But minimizing the gear from 5th to 3rd will be popularly for sudden racing driving. -dinesh (always the racer wins at last)
  8. Yep, sorry for the late reply. Old model CBZ is the rank1 vehicle, comparing with all the other 150cc bikes. This is an usual and normal complaints at old model or rarely used vehicles. Let me guide you mohash. First purchase the "ENGINE OIL FLUSH"(probably it will be a small tin or can). while purchasing, ask to the shopkeeper about how much of the flush ml should be added to the one litre of the bike engine oil. Also purchase one ELF engine oil, and one valvoline engine oil(valvoline costs around 180 to 220rs). And purchase the "BARDAHL" engine oil additive(for petrol engine). Now take this all to the mechanic shop, and strictly ask him to do this procedure without any fail. 1) drain off the engine oil which will be already at the bike engine 2) Now, fill the ELF oil at the engine and add engine oil flush(shopkeeper recommed ml). 3)Now kickstart the engine and allow it to run for 30mins continuosly(Must). 4)Drain off all this engine oil after 30mins completed, you may notice many carbons and oil layers like semi rubber state will be carried out away during the drain. 5)Now, the last process add the specified valvoline oil to the engine freshly. Here, add the Engine oil additive "BARDAHL" along with the valvoline. Drive home your bike with problems solved, this is strictly recommended if you want your vehicle back. SATISFACTION GUARENTEED! -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
  9. Many more happy returns of the day bala. -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
  10. Get replaced the doomlight cover first. I have replaced the 2000model cbz headlight cover now, and used the normal yellow light. Because, white or blue bulb wont be visible on roads during the night time and at traffics. The white bulb is usefull only if you are travelling at the darknight road which has no lamp posts, and opp vehicles light beam. trust me. It will help your needs. -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
  11. One of the ugliest tail ihave seen ever. Good alloyed wheels, muffler"s mounting angle, and especially black coloured engine body. Hope they can bring any 250cc instead, already bored of R15, pulsar220 fellas are saying that thier bikes can beat R15 with outstanding difference.yes it is truth, R15 needs to be powered a bit more high than the older versions. -always the racer wins atlast- -dinesh-
  12. cyrus and ramesh. I agree with your answers, mapmyindia is a best navigator and can use to be fitted with any car. But unfortunately i cannot install the external GPS device in my lancer car which is absolutely having no space for the mounting. I know iam at the loser side. My blackberry maps too not working in india, im disappointed.
  13. Dudes, i have purchased the blackberry storm2 9520 high end phone for decreasing my lappy"s pressure.I am eager to use the "GPS NAVIGATING" app during the cruise.My phone doesnt have gps application. I need to dowload the one which is best for our india. Ofcourse iam not familiar with indian gps-systems. Which mobile app helps us to Navigate throughout our india? I need any best and steady application. Except the "ovi" "maps" apps(usual nokian apps). I need a fully faciliated apps including turn by turn, voice nav, etc. Please suggest me any good application that works fine in india. I often do cruise with my lancer and endeavour. Plz do research before guiding me., ofcourse i will purchase after getting the best answer. My mobile is: BB Storm2 -always the racer wins atlast-
  14. Haha. nishu&ramesh. I will present a big gift, if i find the owner of that 2050model indian splendour.
  15. This is the new model horn arrived in INDIA. Hope you peoples wont competite with foriegns beacuse of getting new models in India itself. -joke- dineshzma1162010-12-10 11:23:12
  16. Not exactly. the radiator didnt give any probs till now. It was taken revenge only after i heard this matter throughout the service station. They are having the ownership database at the service station, so they know about when will a radiator problem will come to the respective bike(s). Clever fellows.
  17. Feels to explain you some real story. My friend with four members inside in a 2002model petrol lancer, went to kerala hill station tour. when they finished and come down, they thought to give mileage and switched off the engine. Then what? lols. an airpin bend came, when he applied brake, it dint worked, also the steer dint turned.. He dashed at the corner wall and full front portion gone... NEVER DRIVE YOUR WHEELS IF THE ENGINE IS SWITCHED OFF.@ rahul
  18. Also i went into the service station and spied their work proceedures. These incredible frauds are using the local oil( filled at the big barrel) with lots of dirts and bad quality... ALERT guys!. Do not believe servicestations untill u have any recognised person there. -always the racer wins atlast- -dinesh-
  19. The Images looks good right? yes it is, but you will be awared if you read the following stories. Lets start discussing. I owned yamaha r15 by 2008 as a proudly 7th owner among the whole chennai city.I bought it and used only rare because i have zma-r already.R15 has clocked just 9000kms till now.The bike was fully serviced regularly, twice i changed the brake pads. From the last one year i am having a lot of issues in my blueboy(r15). 1) Bike getting fader soone 2)Much emmision 3) Sound noise 3xtimes higher 4)Bad pickup 5) Bad front suspension day by day 6)clutch is dead 7)poor chain quality and spracket quality which doesnt suits its performance. As like we know, the bike is just 150cc which is really not an issue.I was a bahrain gp racer, so i know to shift and handle the bikes perfectly.I use zma-r(2007) eventually along with my r15. But it dint gave me any prob except the kick start during optional. But iam fully disappointed with this r15 which is raising problem day by day. Later on now, we are getting a re-launched r15"s with new stickering and with little small mods. In this case, i got a call from the service centre last week, when i took the call a service person spoken to me"Sir please come and replace the radiator of your bike as soon as possible with free of cost, because we got a command from yamaha due to consumers complaints regarding old type r15 radiators". I laughed and cutted the call because i never had that complaint in my bike. The fun, today my bike has given me the radiator prob likewise the serviceperson told. Totally fed-up with this. Owners of old R15s. Alert, and bring your issues as soon as possible. -always the racer wins atlast- dineshzma1162010-12-09 15:39:57
  20. some of my personal thoughts. 1) This ferrari is looking like similar to the dodge viper in front face 2)Mazda stall(white) is similar to the Nissan 370z 3)and New fiesta"s backside view is similar to the lancer evo category. -always the racer wins atlast- -dinesh-
  21. Evo is the great star among those. Last week, we conducted a drag between evo9 and bmw m3(jeddah/ saudi).How awesome,the evo was smoked off the m3 with 3seconds difference at the ending. -always the racer wins atlast- -dinesh-
  22. For your information, when i asked the hyundai service person to change the brand of the engine oil, he laughed and told that they cannot change the brand till the warrenty period exist. And it is necessary to drain off the engine oil during the first service because during the new period of working, engine pistons will work tighter.But no need of changing it during the second service or till 3000/to 4000kms. -always the racer wins atlast- -dinesh-
  23. yes i am dealing with car imports as well... last month sold out one mustang and 1995 lancer. im doing car buying/selling dude. Also a racer. Have mentioned in my profile.(just now quitted from the bahrain mototgp) -dinesh (always the racer wins atlast)
