Nak bagi tip sket, cheeewah, untuk Blade 650 owner. Bagi yang 05 model, sedia maklum lah about the dot at the head untuk tau head dah revised.
Untuk the rest of the 650 owner must do list:
- Stator and Rectifier and battery wiring mod - wajib buat untuk elak unnecessary break down masa ride (having a voltmeter is a plus too)
- Monoshock upgrade!!!!!! sejujurnya, engine Blade 650 is considered pretty strong for a V-Twin 650. Standard, it can propel you up to 240kph indicated, that is probably 230 ++ true speed and that is before ever reaching it's redline @ 10500 RPM. Sejujurnya, although many won't admit and some would strongly disagree, Blade 650 engine is more than capable to smoke an ER6 or SV650 baik roll on mahupun acceleration. The only downside is monoshock standard blade 650 yang terbukti useless, brand spanking new, it will be stable enough up to 200kph, after 3-4 months, you'll get the dreaded weave anywhere above 180kph. I changed mine to an Ohlins, you can get yourself a YSS for RM1050 dekat Sentul or source a 2nd hand unit off of a GSXR600/750/1100 year 1996 below, which are a direct fit.
Sebelum buat mods exhaust ke, carb ke, filter ke, do the shocks FIRST
, all the power is useless if you can't get it on the tarmac effectively. Once you've done the shocks, you'll realize how fast the Blade 650 really is.
Irony dia macam ni, Blade 650 power surge begins at 7000RPM all the way to 9500RPM
, here is where the torque peaked and additional 5Nm
dan HP rises significantly up to it's peak hp.. tapi, at 7000RPM is where speed goes to 160kph dan at 170-180 the weave can be triggered by even the slightest bumps or unevenness on the road. Untuk owner yang dah merasa weaving ni, know this, at top gear, you have only used 80%
of the engine's true power which is at 9000-9500 rpm, sebab you will probably have to back off masa 180kph@8000rpm. that is 1500RPM in the no-go zone or about almost 10hp you can't touch.
Do the monoshock upgrade FIRST and you can be assured you will only be looking at SVs and ER6 from your side mirror
I'm saying this not in terms of provocation ke apa ke, this is just a plain fact, in fact MCN reviewers agrees the Hyosung GT650 have more power than ER6 or SV any day, cuma, for some reason, Naza Blade is blessed with the speed weave (pelik bila rider GT kat US or OZ tak kena similar weave, tak sure if we are getting lower grade monoshocks than they are)
Moral of the story, change the shocks, and next time you ride along ER6 and SVs you can not only keep up, but even pull away, tapi the MOST important thing is, bila perlu untuk memecut, you will be SAFER.
