Never knew EX5 so laku to be stolen. I thought it was very common and cheap so not many people want it. Why they steal it? For parts? But the parts are pretty cheap right? Since its a mass manufactured old tech bike.

old ex5 engine fully assemble from japan. iinm.
rempit like it so much.
latest honda rs150r also thief magnet.
The block itself is also different from the one used on EX5 dream. Ori high power part is much valuable compared to Dream.
That and some other small part like plug coil, some oil seal.

Same goes for RXZ...just google and ask around whats the price for Y1 block at 0.00 spec? even at 0.25 spec i can buy a campro engine block.

The overall engine is more robust conpared to Dream. Stock Dream will have hard time reaching 100kmh on the speedo.

On the supercub...these thing will cost a bomb to modify. Like Izso modifying his previous BMW.

I rode a Benelli RFS150 once and its very tempting but maintenance cost makes me stay away for now.

ya famous rxz, my old colleague lost 3 of it. His house gate dismantle and his dog also cant do anything. 3 times.
Until he fedup, buy cap ayam scrambler type bike.

that just rumours/ the scalpers words to calm themself down... :biggrin:


like the the ex5/any honda 100cc engine.... the newer dream based design is much better for use in racing...in proper race engineered trim, the dream base engine will last longer and deliver better power than the high power older design base engine...

Guys, a quick one.
The rims on my EX5 is worn on the rear bearing hub. Minor mod using aluminium can piece to ensure snug fit.

I plan to change rim and discovered that the std spokes rim can be converted to tubeless. Anyone had done this and is it reliable?

yes, but very messy when puncture or tyre replacement. they will put some beads and sealant liquid in the tyre.

did once and never do it again. straight buy a secondhand sport rim.

yes. messy when puncture as the fluid drools out from the rim sidewall. and you need to clean up the side wall before put back the sealant after you sealed the puncture.

TQ for the info.
Guess will save a bit for better quality rims and wear down the current tires which had 3-6 month of life left. Then can swap rims and mount Pilot Street on the new rims.

Same like those fluid that they pump in car tyres, can prevent puncture, but when time to change tyres, very messy......lol

Update on my EX5,
I managed to get an Osram LED front bulb for free and have been using it for 2 weeks.
To me its not worth to buy.

Why?
1.Its not that much brighter than my Osram Silverstar. At times i think its less bright.
2.High beam and low beam have the same light throw distance. High beam is brighter than low beam only. I read somewhere during low beam only half of the leds are on and switching to high beam will switch on all led.

The light will flicker during idle as LED only have ON or OFF state only, unlike filament bulb where it dims when the bike is at idle.

I Will switch back to Silvestar. My bro dont want the LED bulb so if anyone want then come and get it....foc. If not then the bulb will be a time capsule somewhere in my store.

I am using the osram led on my lagenda. can see it on the pic. 2 pcs. so far it's ok. its works as it is. but during rainy times can't see the roads. yes it flickers as this is the cons of an led light. flickers with inconsistent power supply
