Electronic Turn Flasher for Led

Having problem flashing your signal lights when upgraded to Led type signal bulb. The answer is to change your original thermal flasher to an Adjustable electronic turn signal flasher for motorcycles..whats good about this is that we can control the rate of the flash of our signals that will depend on our liking..as slow rate to strobe rate..it took me months to discover on how to really blink a led on our motorcycles without any disgusting dummy load that prohibits the led to glow at the maximum brightness..but things change.and the time comes to offer to all of you.

size is just 0.5mm by 1.5mm
can be used to drive all signal lights with leds..or bulbs or combination of the two..

there are many aftermarket flasher offered at every motorcycle shop nationwide..but for me being an electronic enthusiast..OMG..some perform really bad...if not..cant do the job 100%.so why not build one for your needs.




picture  show you the actual size fitted on the stock flasher terminal, a two pin flasher. The original was a thermal flasher that can only flash light bulbs, or filament type signal bulb.

 video of the working finished unit plugged on the flasher turn signal flasher terminal. 


the unit been tested on suzuki motorcycle, and will work on any model and brands too that incorporates a 2 pin flasher relay. It can also be use on stock filament bulb, or a combination of them.

Motorcycle Voltage Regulator (fake)

Motorcycle Voltage regulator protects the battery from overcharging by shunting the coil winding, that is why it is an important part of any motorcycle electrical. Replacing a defective unit is a trial and error process if u will be using an aftermarket one and not the OEM replacement.

This post is not against aftermarket but why in the world a friendly motorcycle shop offer a regulator like this. Costumer ask for one, seller gave this part, of course the buyer would not tell the difference between a good and a bad one, i'd say really a BAD one, a FAKE voltage regulator in a well formed housing. (sad).

Out from curiosity, a friend of mine who have a HONDA wave wanting his charging system be converted to full wave system to accommodate the High Intensity Discharge lighting installed. He decided to buy a full wave regulator from his friendly motorcycle part store. I was confused when i test for resistances between pins and only found two pin with resistance. And since i build regulators for motorcycle, i knew there is wrong his unit, that instead of using it, i installed my prebuilt one and enjoy using his HID.
As part of understanding voltage regulator, i opened the regulator. Patience if u want the board intact, hard headed mode if u want it dispose after opening.
Left is the problematic voltage regulator. This regulator will be left destroyed unlike from my previous post here FULL wave regulator that i need the board intact and replicate it. From the very first smash of my flat screwdriver on the aluminum casing, I already know it is FAKE!!! no circuit board.

Moving on, I also noticed bits of sand, What the heck? Sand inside the unit, hmm (at the last of this page i'll tell you the purpose of that sand.)

No circuit board is found on the connector side, All you can see is on the photo.

DIODE. yes only diode soldered on two pin, other two pin not connected, so that is why i  only get one resistance from all the pin available. Too bad. If this unit was place and use on board your motorcycle. Lots of thing may happen, One can overcharge your battery, boil the plates and spill out electrolyte that will cause corrosion on chassis and metal of your bike. Two is overvoltage within your entire electrical system, bust the lights, a defective igniter, and worst, Fried wiring harness.

So as part of educational purposes, Be aware of fake voltage regulators, buy from a reputable store or online products, and do buy a branded one.

CONCLUSION:
The sand was placed inside the fake regulator for one purpose only. WEIGHT. the regulator without any circuit board and just diode will weigh less and may be very noticeable by the buyer. (clever idea huh!) but you cannot fool the ones who know to use the resistance meter. (take that!!!)

RECOMMENDATION
use multimeter and test all possible pin available with the probe, if u get one resistance from all the pin, it is likely to be fake. Just don't plug it in your motorcycle electrical system, test it on the bench.

Shogun Pro 125 Service Manual

This is the service manual of the so called shogun FL125, known as shogun pro 125 in the phillipines, X-bike in vietnam, Shogun SP in indonesia and suzuki Address 125 in Europe. Troubleshooting this bike on your own means dedication and a little knowledge on how a part is known and how each component is working with each other. This bike is so fortunate that it had their service manual, My Shogun variant which is the FDXRM 125 unfortunately can't be found, not unless you are a mechanic of suzuki.

The service manual as you view it contains all, from internal engine parts with exploded view and how to dismantle and assemble each part is all here.

There are many service manual and parts catalogue already posted here. For your specific brand and model, Under SERVICE MANUAL drop down menu will bring you to your brand.

Supercharger for small 4 stroke engine

Super Chargers For 50cc and 88cc Big Bore Kits!

How it works:

Supercharger can increase your motorcycle’s acceleration by 100%. This supercharger unit compresses and forces air into your engine. With this increased air supply more fuel can be used creating a huge increase in acceleration. Acceleration can be as much as doubled, making your top speed attainable in half the time. Improved acceleration will improve the maneuverability of you motorcycle, especially in traffic situations.

Here is a video pertaining to a scooter with this modification.




Well i've been thinking of this a long time ago, but have not  able to do so because of the limited resources here in my country. The principle is a straight forward. increase the air velocity, thus increasing intake pressure and the product is increase in acceleration and performance even if the camshaft is in stock form. It is like having a turbo of those turbocharged engine.

Motorcycle oil or Automotive oil

A never ending debate, a trial and error scenario. You will never get to the truth unless you know the facts.


This shogun pro 125cc perhaps and i think one of the unit in a million produce by suzuki in asia pacific that gets tortured by me. Why?,well 6 months after it was bought last 2004. Her blood is running only on automotive oil, yes you read it. Automotive oil now for 9 years and she is still running in good condition, Never it had a major breakdown regarding internal engine parts. I had search all article about such topic, a motorcycle oil cannot be substituted by automotive oil. It is always debated on forum, articles, even talks around corners.

Honda Zoomer X

This is a new era of scooter introduced by Honda. A new design body with seat opening sideways instead of upwards to access storage, a headlight like of those sporty machine. Powered by a 110cc (108cc) single fuel injected engine. As other review tell us, a liter of gasoline can take you all the way up to 53kms, with proper throttling and braking. With this kind of design probably will make a head turner at every corner of the world.
