Difference between a working and a burnt denso radiator fan

In this new post I will try to illustrate the difference between a working and a burnt Motorcycle denso radiator fan used by Kawasaki, Yamaha and some other bike manufacturers.

Below is an example of a burnt fin on the Rotor (Notice the black oxidized area around the shaft)

This however is an example of a good working Rotor (Notice the area around the shaft which is clean of any oxidization) and also the magnet which is still in good clean condition.

ASTUTE Skylite VT

Can't wait to try out the Astute Skylite VT...
Some Updates on the comfort of the Skylite VT Seat....Just did approximately 211km from 3 rides over the last week end and I am happy to update that the seat performs flawlessly. It has enough firmness to provide the proper contact of the rider to the bicycle at the same time does not give the floating effect of some thickly padded touring seats. Completed both GCE & Rapha Gohtong Jaya ride without having to use any chamois cream. Absolute value for money. Bought the Astute from Bigbike66 a trustworthy ebay merchant from Bangkok, Thailand. After exhausting all my efforts in getting the black and red Astute seat from Kuala Lumpur.

Latest picture of the BMC SLR02 with Zipp 303 Clincher laced to the White industries hub 



Clincher Triple Tube Killer

Even a small shard of glass can wreak havoc to your sunday morning ride. Totally destroying 3 inner tubes, even the most skillful bike shop mechanic could not even find this shard of glass that is embedded into the thick top wall of my front Tufo Calibra clincher tire.



One englishman even called it sneaky...you know who you are....

First Outing for Custom Wheel Zipp 303 with White Industries T11 Hub - Bt18 Genting Perez

Sunday 26 Feb 2017 was the first outing for the Custom Wheel Zipp 303 with White Industries T11 Hub. Combination of the Custom Zipp 303 Wheel with White Industries T11 Hub performed amicably for the hilly 79.5km BT.18 Genting Perez route. Absorbing most of the jarring bumps along the winding road, at the same time maintaining a very rigid and responsive feel on the climbs. The Ultegra Di2 was not tuned well after the wheel swap from the Venn wheelset I was testing a week ago but was easily configured on the fly using the adjustment mode on the Di2 on the Junction Box A mounted below the handle stem. Few clicks on the rear shifter and the clicking sound emitting from the RD was soon a thing of the past. Weather was perfect with the mist just hanging post the early morning shower and was clearly visible when we reached the summit of Genting Perez.
