The sgBikerBoy 2016 Trip – Day 4 morning maintenance

Chain slack checked. Was kinda loose.

Also lubed the chain. It’s been 1,000km since I last lubed it 2 days ago. Silly me – I took the can and just sprayed. Then I was wondering why the lube felt so thin. Looked at the bottle and it says “chain cleaner”. Silly me!

Took the opportunity to inflate the tires too. Quick job with my electric air compressor.

Noticed my left hand MIC fog light had rattled loose. Nothing some basic tools cannot fix. Got it done.

Did a very short test ride and all seem okay for now. No rattle. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh… Good morning everyone!

  1. Looks like those side panniers are doing a great job of carrying all the basic maintenance stuffs that you need for this LONG trip. And your 200cc Pulsar has certainly done a great job thus far. It just goes to show that you don’t really need a big & heavy ADV bike to go the distance. All you need is a great sense of adventure (and a butt of steel!!). Ride on Bro!!

    1. Honestly, I sometimes wished I had slightly bigger side boxes. But then again, with the crazy traffic here in Thailand, I’d rather maintain nimbleness with a low profile.

      Like I said, “I don’t have an adventure bike, but I’m having an adventure on my bike!”

      The stock seat on the Pulsar 200NS isn’t that bad actually. I don’t really have a problem with it. The only issue I have with the seat is that it tends to get warm after a while. Nothing some stand up exercises won’t help – with either very light or no traffic, of course. Sometimes, the wind blowing past my bum area in a half-squat position does magic.
