    i did it at the yamaha dealer... and i wasn't around when he changed it.. so im not too sure on it.. but i did buy a new bottle of oil when i bought the inner tube, but it's not used... may be i should ask the mechanic about it... hehe

    Get also better look doesn't it?
    Why not to Mio inner tube Bro? hehehe...

    If without adding any oil, i may advice you try to be more cautious as some friends got problem with da radiator (leaking), especially if you mounted thicker radiator cover.
    Once you sure there is no problem, then enjoy your ride.

    oohh... i get what u mean now.. but with the jupiter z's shaft, it's not that low.. i mean, the drop is only about 3cm right. but i think it's just the right height for our bike... though i havent tried more lower bikes...

    rooster, thanks man.. really appreciate it:D FYI: i was on holiday for the past 3 weeks. that's why i didn't post here. have slow internet connection at home, so, too lazy to post. besides.. wanted to enjoy more of my holiday then spending time in front of the pc... hehehe

    another question:
    1. anyone knows about the mio inner shaft diameter? would it fit our bike? what's the length of it? lower by?

    2. is it possible for us to change our front shocks and use 125z's front absorber?? would it be plug&play? or lots of modification to be done?

    :shock: ?

    Huh?? Now I lowered mine but not too much, guys, don't lower your front until the grill cover hits your front fender! That's just stooopid. Keep it stable cuz the factory settings are the 'ideal' road riding settings for safety and performance.

    For vanity, sure go ahead, but becareful.
