Rossi Back With Yamaha Team

2013-05-18T16:04:12.011+02:00



It's an old story, but can't stop myself from writing it, as it was a part of a moment which a legend had made a great decision to get back with his old team - Yamaha, the most successful team in MotoGP History.

I'm sure all of Yamaha fans regret when he quit his contract on Yamaha back on 2011, (me too) it was such unbelievable moment, and Rossi statement was pretty cruel, broke everyone's feeling, (even we still had to consider his decision. I still remember it, where Rossi was quoted to say " It's really nice to get back in the race with my own national technology- Ducati". Yes, sounds patriotic! And that's the moment when we had to say good bye with tears on our eyes. And for me, it's really worthy and showing how really serious Ducati to make a big history in their business in MotoGP.

Remember around August 2012, when the rumors widely spread that The Doctor is going to back with Yamaha? Surely such a nice and unbelievable news right? But, that's it. When I say Rossi back with Yamaha, I believe he made a right choice to get back with Yamaha team. Seems, the destiny really to put them together. Who knows, who can expect, their collaboration didn't success enough? Welcome back Rossi, he will be with Yamaha Factory Racing for two years contract, since last April.

Anyway, here is the video explaining the situation and reason why he left Ducati.
Keep Calm, Rock with Yamaha.






Yamaha Dealer for Malaysia

2013-05-18T12:18:11.893+02:00

I think it won't be enough if I didn't help you guys to get valid source for more info about any Yamaha model in Malaysia. So, let me give you a reliable source to help you guys with it.

For your information, Hong Leong Yamaha is the only one distributor with license from Yamaha company. Being the only onle Yamaha dealer in Malaysia, they have done a great job since 1982 if I'm not mistaken. Congratulation to them, for being the only one, who had a deal to distribute Yamaha bike for Malaysian market. As you might now, some country in the world doesn't have chance to own any Yamaha bike as there are no dealer in their country. Lucky us to have Hong Leong Yamaha as the only Yamaha Dealer in Malaysia.

So, here is the link for Yamaha dealer in Malaysia

Yamaha 135LC History

2008-12-05T16:29:59.238+02:00

The Yamaha Y135LC debuted in 2005 for Thai and Indonesian market before brought in Malaysian market in February 2006. The Y135LC was designed by the headquarters of Yamaha Motor Company in Japan for Asean market. The model was very successful in Southeast Asia especially in Malaysia. To promote the Y135LC, Yamaha organized an Asean road tour known as the Yamaha Pan Asean Tour, traveling 9,000 km on roads in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines, which ended on May 2006. For your information, it have their own named, different due to their country. The Yamaha Spark 135i, or Yamaha T135 as the experts call the motorcycle. To be honest the Yamaha Spark 135 has many names in the Philippines the Spark is known as the Yamaha Sniper and in Indonesia as the Yamaha Jupiter MX and some parts of the world the Yamaha Spark 135i is known by the simple name of just Yamaha 135LC.

Yamaha 135LC Review

2008-12-04T09:24:36.810+02:00

It was long time ago in the August 2006, when i'm on the way to Kuala Lumpur. Suddenly I heard my lecturers conversation about the new Yamaha model, which published in the newspaper on that day. The 1st impression when I see the advertisement was... WHOA!!! It really come forward with enthusiastic, sporty and elegant attribute (except it's head Yamaha 135LC, also known as Yamaha Spark 135 in Thailand, Yamaha Sniper in Philippines and Yamaha Jupiter MX in Indonesia. It is a small underbone bodied motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha Motor Company which is also a moped or underbone model with the second-largest displacement behind Suzuki Raider 150. And I began to imagine how powerful it is to conquer all over Malaysian road. By the way, in 2008, the fuel-injected version of the Yamaha Spark 135 was launched for Thai market, making it the second underbone motorcycle using the fuel injection system after the Honda Wave 125i. This is the specification and features of the Yamaha LC that I would like to present:Specification Model code: T135Engine: SOHC 4-valve 4-stroke 135cc water-cooled engineCylinder arrangement: Forward-inclined single cylinderDisplacement: 134.9 ccMax power: 8.45 kW (11.33 PS) @ 8,500 rpmMax torque: 11.65 Nm @ 5,500 rpmMax speed: 162 km/hBore x stroke: 54.0 x 58.7 mmCompression ratio: 10.9 : 1Transmission: Constant mesh 4-speedClutch: Wet, multiple-disk and centrifugal automatic (optional manual clutch model is also available)Fuel system: Fuel injection (2008 Yamaha Spark 135i in Thailand only); Mikuni VM22 carburetor with throttle position sensor (other countries)Frame Type: Diamond-shaped underbone steel tubeSuspension (Front): TelescopicSuspension (Rear): MonoshockBrake (Front): Single-piston disc, Dual-piston disc - 135LC Extreme Spirit (Malaysia)Brake (Rear): DrumDry weight: 103 kgFuel tank capacity: 4.0 L Features DiASil (die-cast aluminum cylinder) which has better heat conductance to dissipate excessive heat easily.Lighter forged pistonRoller bearing rocker arms with less friction than typical rocker arms.4-valve water-cooled engine - The 4-valve engine configuration provides better volumetric efficiency compared with other 4-stroke moped models which uses 2-valve engine design, enabling the engine to produce higher torque at high rpm. However, the engine displacement of 135cc limits the ability of air-cooling system while retaining the small kapchai design at the same time, therefore water-cooling system which has better cooling efficiency is used.Fuel injection (2008 Yamaha Spark 135i in Thailand only) for cleaner emission and better efficiency than the carbureted version.Carburetor with throttle position sensor and accelerator pump (other countries) - The Y135LC uses Mikuni VM22 carburetor equipped with throttle position sensor for more precise ignition timing, increasing the engine's efficiency, and also an accelerator pump for better acceleration and instant response during take-off.Catalytic converter - Even though most 4-stroke kapchai models are capable to surpass strict emission standards without even using the catalytic converters, Yamaha has taken an initiative to install a catalytic converter to the Y135LC to surpass even stricter emission standards in the future.Sport rims with tubeless tires (standard for Malaysian models only)[...]



Yamaha Vino Show Off

2008-12-03T00:30:44.433+02:00

My recent post was about Yamaha Vino, the next Yamaha scooter model. Since my focus was on Malaysia, so it is expected that the scooter will realeased in 2009. It looks really cute and more feminine. Maybe Yamaha Motor Corporation aiming to attract women to choose Yamaha Vino as their transport. Yesterday I found Yamaha Vino at Motorcycle Thai blog. I'm a bit surprised, since I never know that Yamaha Vino already released in Thailand. Eventhough we are neighboring country, but it doesn't mean we will launch any model at the same time. Let's take a look at this adorable Vino. Hopefully, this will encourage you to produce more creative and extreme modification on Vino.[...]

RXZ Catalyzer 1st Edition (2001)

2008-08-12T17:01:39.958+03:00

Sorry for my late post. I was busy looking for any material to blog. And luckyly I got a catalogue of Yamaha RXZ Catalyzer 1st Edition from my friend-Ah Keong. Yamaha took courageous steps to redesign Yamaha RXZ. It was the 3rd generation with full aerodynamic design due to the millennium year of 2001. This time it definitely redesign, some people say it was new born coz it really have different look from the past model. The catalyzer exhaust system also good for it's friendly environment and didn't make more noise. More over it produce more torque, refer to the riders opinion.(image) (image) (image) (image)



Catalyzer-What is it?

2008-11-07T05:46:10.298+02:00

My previous post is pointing about Yamaha 125 Z 1st design. And I'd mentioned that it was produced with catalyzer exhaust system. Also the all new brand Yamaha RXZ, began using the catalyzer exhaust system since year 2004 and Yamaha 135LC on 2006. So, I'm going to describe and giving you some info, what catalyzer is all about. Below is the picture of RXZ catalyzer exhaust.Before you know about catalyzer, you should know what is catalysis actually. So let's take a look at the article below, quoted from Wikipedia.Catalysis is the process in which the rate of a chemical reaction is increased by means of a chemical substance known as a catalyst. Unlike other reagents that participate in the chemical reaction, a catalyst is not consumed. Thus, the catalyst may participate in multiple chemical transformations, although in practice catalysts are sometimes consumed in secondary processes.BackgroundThe production of most industrially important chemicals involves catalysis. Research into catalysis is a major field in applied science and involves many areas of chemistry, notably in organometallic chemistry, and materials science. Catalysis is important in many aspects of environmental science, from the catalytic converter in automobiles to the causes of the ozone hole. Catalytic reactions are preferred in environmentally friendly green chemistry due to the reduced amount of waste generated,[1] as opposed to stoichiometric reactions in which all reactants are consumed and more side products are formed. The most common catalyst is the proton (H+). Many transition metals and transition metal complexes are used in catalysis as well.A catalyst works by providing an alternative reaction pathway to the reaction product. The rate of the reaction is increased as this alternative route has a lower activation energy than the reaction route not mediated by the catalyst. The disproportionation of hydrogen peroxide to give water and oxygen is a reaction that is strongly affected by catalysts: 2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2This reaction is favoured in the sense that reaction products are more stable than the starting material, however the uncatalysed reaction is slow. The decomposition of hydrogen peroxide is in fact so slow that hydrogen peroxide solutions are commercially available. Upon the addition of a small amount of manganese dioxide, the hydrogen peroxide rapidly reacts according to the above equation. This effect is readily seen by the effervescence of oxygen.[2] The manganese dioxide may be recovered unchanged, and re-used indefinitely, and thus is not consumed in the reaction. Accordingly, manganese dioxide catalyses this reaction.[3]General principles of catalysisTypical mechanism Main article: catalytic cycle Catalysts generally react with one or more reactants to form an intermediate that subsequently give the final reaction product, in the process regenerating the catalyst. The following is a typical reaction scheme, where C represents the catalyst, A and B are reactants, and D is the product of the reaction of A and B: A + C → AC (1)B + AC → ABC (2)ABC → CD (3)CD → C + D (4) Although the catalyst is consumed by reaction 1, it is subsequently produced by reaction 4, so for the overall reaction: A + B → D As a catalyst is regenerated in a reaction, often only small amounts are needed to increase the rate of the reaction. In practice, however, catalysts are sometimes consumed in secondary processes.Catalysis and reaction energeticsGeneric potential energy diagram showing the effect of a catalyst in an hypothetical exothermic chemical reaction. The presence of the catalyst opens a different reaction pathway (shown in red) with a lower activation energy. The final result and the overall thermodynamics are the same.

1st Yamaha 125 Z Design

2008-11-07T05:46:11.023+02:00

This time I would like to share a few picture of the 1st Yamaha 125 Z model. Yamaha 125Z is
underbone cub powered by 2 stroke 125cc Yamaha engine. Entering Malaysian market in early 1997,(forgive me if I'm mistaken) it got hot reception among Malaysian rider.It has top
of the range everything: originally 125cc high revving engine, Brembo duobloc brakes, catalyzer exhaust and aeorodynamic nice design so it fulfilled riders desire in it class. For the 1st edition, as you can see, it came out with non sport rim-with scale 17 inch rim. Despite of this blemish factor, it’s still have originally high revving engine makes it very familiar among youth of Malaysia. Unfortunately,they gone wild-racing at the road in the hustle bustle of the city even in the village! Not just racing, they also love to make show off and performance to show their skills such as burn out, wheelie, "whee-kang"(rear wheelie) and more dangerous trick. Then the title of "Mat Rempit" spread all over Malaysia. Mat Rempit refer to the riders who ride motorcycle rapidly, and in dangerous way. Ok, I'll tell you more bout it soon. Now look down below, the 1st design of Yamaha 125z. The 1st decal quite simple for me but still represent it's hot and powerful performance...(image) (image) (image) (image)

Insistence

2008-11-07T05:46:11.189+02:00

Readers pressure made me a bit stress. They urged me to write something more specific
about any Yamaha (motorcycle) model coz they are really interested in Yamaha RXZ 135,
Yamaha 125 Z, Yamaha 135 LC, and Yamaha Ego. All this bike names (image) refer to Malaysia due
to my most visitor come from Malaysia. Instead the pressure, I’m thankful for their response. It shows their loyalty, support to this blog :D Okay...then I'll start to post about it soon.
But I'm wondering where to start? Which model must I start with? Actually I'm facing problem to collect info from Malaysia coz I'm away from it now. Huh~ but I'll try my best. Mm..if anyone of you could help me to gather the info, oh thanks a lot dude. Feel free to share with me. Let's contribute for this blog...



Safety First!

2008-11-07T05:46:11.309+02:00

Hi, today i would talk about safety. Safety is still the most important thing that should be aware by anyone those assembling the vehicle. It is at this moment, when protection is indispensable. To avoid accidents and cases of unjustified, the quality of equipment and vehicles should be used.

In connection with motorists who need optimal security and protection to perform routine effectively. To achieve this goal, gear, accessories and motorcycle parts reliably be used. The driver of the motorcycle is exciting routine. It is not biker dude on other items. Nevertheless, drivers should be used as a protective shield in more detail at this motorcycle parts that are durable and reliable. The fact that the driver needs a helmet, trousers, boots, jackets gloves, and much more, motorcycle shops are now available via Internet access. They each driver has a one-stop shop for all their needs at affordable prices. Distance is not a disadvantage, because these stores offer delivery directly to your door. Most of them are dealers who serve in the Internet market motorcycle(image) parts, services and accessories for Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki ", BMW, Triumph, Ducati and Cobra. It also gives valuable information for motorcycle enthusiasts.

Each driver has different styles and needs. Ryder may be a child or adult, amateur or professional, male or female. They prefer a different design, style, color and comfort when they are riding on their motorbikes. We call this difference individually. The difference results of individual and individual needs. To accommodate these different needs, a wide range of options should be available. This is not a problem. The motorcycle shops can be obtained. With just a click of a mouse, rider can buy everything you need.

There are other factors to drivers of motorcycles, which require the same attention as the weather conditions, road and the motorcycle itself. No one knows whether it would be rainy or sunny day, so you need to keep handy accessories to assist the cyclist in their difficult times. There are many motorcycles and accessories shops, which has built its name, and they have built in the consistency and accuracy. That is why we will win the overwhelming confidence of riders.

It is unwise to risk their lives, relying on unreliable animals. The quality of art and motorcycle parts, you enjoy a risk, and even more rugged trip!

Great discounts are also available for all fans on motorcycles. Now riders do not have to worry about the cost, since it is not necessary to make the price of hot parts of motorcycles superiority! As a conclusion, remember those who love you. So you would consider to remain safety aspect when riding.



2 VS 4 (Motorcycle Stroke Engines)

2008-06-27T20:46:30.243+03:00

Hi, we meet again in the new entry. This entry is important for them to choose whether 2 or 4 stroke engine. It was a same story with me, when I decide to have my own motorcycle. Ok, let's always start with the basics. If you go the more complex without having to know the basics, you'll end up back in the same field. Thus, messing and missing a lot.

Even in the case of the motorcycle, you need to know the different parts of motorcycles, their function and the distinction in order to understand the chemistry and their importance. Take internal combustion engine as an example. The best way to start is to have a comparison. You should know the types of engines in order to decide what is good for you. You must consider its advantages and disadvantages ...

We have two types of motorcycle engines - the two stroke and four-stroke engines. The first involves a process of two - compression and combustion. On the other hand, the cycle in the four-stroke engines to the reception, compression, combustion and exhaust.

If we want to give their advantages here are some. In the two-stroke engines, fire engine, lighting candles once a revolution of the crankshaft. These are simple process with fewer parts. Its power is twice as compared to the four-stroke engines. Regarding the four-stroke engines, they must master the use of gas. They also emit less smoke than two-stroke engines. Above all, they last longer.

What about disadvantages? With both engines, you have to mix oil with gas. This can be costly. They can also give more pollutants. The use of natural gas is also competent word. Finally, they had less. With the four-stroke engines, their disadvantages, including their nature complex because there are several parties to participate, they fire once every two revolutions, and half as powerful as the two engines.

After knowing the positive and negative aspects of these two types of engine, you can now determine which of the two you like best. It's just a question of what you like and what works for you. Hope my article, my opinion helps you a lot! C ya!...



How to Change the Clutch

2008-06-27T20:04:29.211+03:00

Oh boy! I almost forget to publish this article. Huh(~sigh) Actually, this entry is responsed and linked to the previous entry as the last one tell us about how clutches works. And now let's have a tutorial on method-how to change the clutch.. Enjoy it.. It jez simple as I do it by myself before.

How Clutches Work

2008-11-07T05:46:11.839+02:00

Hi everybody. Today I would like to share a video with all of you. It's about how clutch work. It's a video showing car clutch system, but actually it's pretty close, same with motorcycle clutch system. Let's study the video, so we can understand how it works. Hopefully we can repair it by ourselves or at least we know what's problem we are facing, in case our clutch having problem some how, someday. Ok, did u enjoy the video? Everything is clear for you? Haha. Ok, let me describe in a long+detailed description. Firstly let me inform all of you that clutch is a term referring to a mechanism for transmitting rotation. This rotation can be either engaged or disengaged. When the clutch is engaged, there is no pressure on the lever. On the other hand, pulling the lever back towards you will disengage the clutch plates. Doing this will allow you to shift gears. Basically, clutch is popular as it is a subcomponent of a motor vehicle. On motorcycles, the clutch is operated by the clutch lever, located on the left handlebar. From idle, the engine speed will increase while engaging. Raising your engine speed too high will cause excessive clutch plate wear and cause a harsh, jerky start. This type of start is used in drag racing and other competitions. Clutch accessories work together to attain the desired starting performance of your motorcycle bike. On the left-hand handlebar grip, your bike lever clutch is positioned. The engine and transmission is disconnected as you pull the clutch lever toward you. By doing so, you allow easily shift gears. Clutch lever is connected to a cable which goes to the physical clutch release mechanism. It can also be hydraulically operated. Broken clutch cables are eliminated by the use of a hydraulic clutch. Friction plates are the major working components of a motorcycle clutch. They take the abuse and wear of daily riding and since they are built as a consumable item, they wear out and need to be replaced. You can do things in order to extend the life of your clutch. Topping the list is to make sure all clutch accessories and components are properly positioned or adjusted. Maintaining proper lubrication of your wet clutch is also necessary. Oil in a wet clutch functions as a coolant. The oil in the primary chain case flows around the clutch plates and friction plates. You should change clutch oil as often as necessary by using quality oil at the proper viscosity. To minimize excessive slipping, you will need to adjust your riding style. This is because over slipping can cause too much heat resulting in rapid wear. Should the clutch components become weak, replace them with the best clutch parts available in the motorcycle store near you. Choosing high quality clutch accessories or components will definitely save money in the long run. Lastly I want to remind that a good caring for clutch is indeed so it'll work well. Don't forget that clutch is a part of big factor to make sure your motorcycle "pick-up" at the start as you pull the throttle. Hope this article benefit you. Till then.. Vroooooooooom!!![...]

Paving the Road to Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA"I want to carry out trial manufacture of motorcycle engines." It was from these words spoken by Genichi Kawakami (Yamaha Motor's first president) in 1953, that today's Yamaha Motor Company was born.Genichi Kawakami was the first son of Kaichi Kawakami, the third-generation president of Nippon Gakki (musical instruments and electronics; presently Yamaha Corporation). Genichi studied and graduated from Takachiho Higher Commercial School in March of 1934. In July of 1937, he was the second Kawakami to join the Nippon Gakki Company.He quickly rose to positions of manager of the company's Tenryu Factory Company (musical instruments) and then Senior General Manager, before assuming the position of fourth-generation President in 1950 at the young age of 38.In 1953, Genichi was looking for a way to make use of idle machining equipment that had previously been used to make aircraft propellers. Looking back on the founding of Yamaha Motor Company, Genichi had this to say. "While the company was performing well and had some financial leeway, I felt the need to look for our next area of business. So, I did some research." He explored producing many products, including sewing machines, auto parts, scooters, three-wheeled utility vehicles, and…motorcycles. Market and competitive factors led him to focus on the motorcycle market. Genichi actually visited the United States many times during this period.When asked about this decision, he said, "I had my research division chief and other managers visit leading motorcycle factories around the country. They came back and told me there was still plenty of opportunity, even if we were entering the market late. I didn't want to be completely unprepared in this unfamiliar business so we toured to German factories before setting out to build our first 125cc bike. I joined in this tour around Europe during which my chief engineers learned how to build motorbikes. We did as much research as possible to insure that we could build a bike as good as any out there. Once we had that confidence, we started going."The first Yamaha motorcycle... the YA-1."If you are going to make it, make it the very best there is." With these words as their motto, the development team poured all their energies into building the first prototype, and ten months later in August of 1954 the first model was complete. It was the Yamaha YA-1. The bike was powered by an air-cooled, 2-stroke, single cylinder 125cc engine. Once finished, it was put through an unprecedented 10,000 km endurance test to ensure that its quality was top-class. This was destined to be the first crystallization of what has now become a long tradition of Yamaha creativity and an inexhaustible spirit of challenge.Then, in January of 1955 the Hamakita Factory of Nippon Gakki was built and production began on the YA-1. With confidence in the new direction that Genichi was taking, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. was founded on July 1, 1955. Staffed by 274 enthusiastic employees, the new motorcycle manufacturer built about 200 units per month.That same year, Yamaha entered its new YA-1 in the two biggest race events in Japan. They were the 3rd Mt. Fuji Ascent Race and the 1st Asama Highlands Race. In these debut races Yamaha won the 125cc class. And, the following year the YA-1 won again in both the Light and Ultra-light classes of the Asama Highlands Race.By 1956, a second model was ready for production. This was the YC1, a 175cc single cylinder two-stroke. In 1957 Yamaha began production of its first 250cc, [...]



Why Yamaha?

2008-11-07T05:46:12.786+02:00

Why do I blog on Yamaha? In fact, I think all readers agree with statement saying that Yamaha is the most perfect, powerful and persistent bike from the past time. Let's hear my opinion and the confession as a user of Yamaha. Do not forget to share your thoughts here. For your information I also have a Yamaha motorcycle 125-Z that I bought from my classmate. RM4200 worth, I got a package of cover set for free and a couple of aloy rim-17 inches. Here's why I choose Yamaha..

1. I'd fall in love with Yamaha design. It is well designed, looks so beautiful with superb aerodynamics and so hot. In fact, it was love at the 1st sight when I saw for the 1st time in my life on TV (I am not sure whether in 1998 or 1999), I think it was already perfect design. And I started to dream to have it one soon. Just imagine how lucky and happy I am when I bought it on April 2004. It seems 2 be my birthday present. =D


2. There is no reason to deny the fact that Yamaha provide success and horseback sattisfy their proper functioning of the engine. Maybe my statement was influenced by that I admired MotoGP Valentino Rossi too! In fact, there is no other manufacturer can beat Yamaha very well.

3. Haha .. wherever, whenever I go, there is so many people hangout riding Yamaha bike including Yamaha RXZ, 125Z, 125Z-R, LC, Legend, SS, SS Two, and Ego. My country-Malaysia have the most riders of Yamaha. So it's kind of an attract 4 me to blog bout Yamaha. It seems to be a lifestyle of youth in Malaysia nowdays having Yamaha as their vehicle.

That's all, I hope you will enjoy yourself here and we can share all kinds of information about Yamaha motorcycle here and see you next time...
