    I have installed new handlebar switches (the installation was pretty straightforward) and found out that the old left one had a broken high beam flash button, and the old right one had a broken tip that was supposed to fix the handlebar switch in place on the handlebar.
    I was quite surprised to find out that that tip was plastic rather than metal.

    I also installed cheap plastic taobao hand guards on the scooter. Now it's much more comfortable to ride in the rain and in cold weather.

    Just got back from a week-long trip. It's a pleasant surprise that the scooter battery took a week of no riding just fine, and the scoot started as usual. The only annoyance was the fact that the whole dashboard (except for idiot lights) went dead all of a sudden without any obvious reason. A day later though the dashboard magically came to life all by itself.

    It has finally gotten real cold in Nanjing, and once again I'm impressed with the scoot's fairing. Still, I'm getting me one of those aprons you see locals riding in, since I believe it will enhance my winter riding hundredfold.

    Update: I got my apron from Taobao, and indeed it made winter riding much more comfortable! Wonder why I didn't think of doing it last winter!

    Hello my non-existent readers!

    I wonder if anyone has ever thought of / tried replacing original Jetmax's clutch, variator pulley and torque driver with Japanese scooter parts (Yamaha / Honda / Suzuki / Kawasaki)? If yes, and if it worked well, I'd be super happy if you could give some suggestions here.

    I plan to look into upgrading my transmission this summer - might as well look into Japanese mods.

    No curb-jumping; never loaded more than a rain racket and a few bungee cords in my top box. It just happened.
    The thing that frustrates me most (besides having to wait for the part for over a week since nobody stocks spares for Jetmax any longer) is the fact that it is all not real metal.
    It may be painted like metal and feel like steel on the outside, yet inside it's some bread-like porous rice crap.
    What a pity Chunfeng, what a pity.

    Its aluminum cast. Its caused most probably by vibrations.
    If overloaded it has no elastic range and crack from one moment to next.
    That's the typical compromise between weight and durability

    Right. Well, anyways, I've already ordered a new handle. Will replace the broken one in a week or so. Nothing critical :)

    Wanted to install fog lights on the front fork, like some Kymco i300 owners do, and... my front forks are not suited for the light mounts. That's a pity... On the side note, there aren't a lot of custom parts for the Jetmax out there, unfortunately.

  10. #50 Quick Comparison With Kymco i300 ABS and Oil on the Engine

    Had a chance to look at Kymco i300 ABS side by side with my Jetmax. I have recently been thinking of changing my scooter for the Kymco, and was very happy at the chance.
    Kymco definitely has a better build quality. The plastic panels look better and the paint quality is better than that on Jetmax. The space is a problem though. The rider's triangle feels pretty cramped on the Kymco, compared to Jetmax.
    The undersea storage is significantly smaller too, just like the space between rider's legs (I can fit a crate of veer bottles ono my Jetmax right there, doubt I could do that on Kymco).
    Kymco sounds better, handles better and is faster off the line, but these are the things I can probably fix with replacing my variator and clutch.
    Rear shocks are way better on Kymco, which makes it be a more comfortable ride.
    Overall, I'm not going to change my scoot anytime soon, since Kymco didn't really impress me that much.

    Oil leaks now. I've found that the right side of the engine is covered in oil. Don't know why it's happening - I've added the oil according to the manual when replacing the oil filter. No idea where the oil leaks from or why it leaks. Oil pressure / engine check light doesn't light up though, so it seems that all is alright. Will see how it goes.
