NMax engine overhaul


Recommended Posts

My NMax is now 5 yrs old with 65000kms, the engine needs some love as it's become a little bit noisier, it's not as fast as it was, has Yamaha got an overhaul package for this bike, hoping someone has had this done and can give some info.

Is it burning oil? Smoking?

 

" Yamaha got an overhaul package for this bike?"

No, don't think so.

I guess they could put the parts in a box or bag,

or some kind of package tho.

 

Many shops do ring-piston-bore jobs.

It is not as fast as it was because? 

- The belt is worn?

- The variator pulleys are worn?

- The catastrophic converter is plugged?

- (Some scooters) the valve clearance needs to be adjusted.

 

If you are going to spend any real money you might as well go 177cc

 

PS. Out of curiosity I bought a piston and cylinder for a Yamaha Filano for about 1500 baht, if i remember correctly.

Start by getting it a full service.

 

oil

oil filter

fuel filter

spark plug

coolant

brake fluid

brake pads

 

They will then also give advice on if anything else is required, a new piston and cylinder, etc.

 

Presuming that you take it to a decent place.

Nothing serious is wrong I just feel it could be better, no smoke etc, maybe because I've had it so long it just needs something.

Air filter replaced recently, lost weight(little bit) it's fine just had it a long time.

[Not sure if those Yamaha bores can be machined], but if,]

can recommend top-notch

repair/overhaul shop in Pattycake.  // auto-spell, 5 5 //  

3rd. Road.

Other shops bring their cylinders here.  

Fast. Low prices. Honest.

Likely have parts in stock.

Less likely to screw up than others.

Can watch all work,

including machine work,

if you ask real nice.

Boss, Shi, decent English.

 

Times are tough for Thais.

Always tip accordingly.

If it's me I'll try to change all drive parts first before doing some unnecessary engine overhaul.

Variator set, belt and clutch set, gear oil, air filter , spark plug, engine oil....

 

My PCX is at 60,000 kms and still runs like new. I'm starting to get bored with it too but can't seem to bring myself to sell it as used prices are way too low. It's become my project bike where I put accessories and try different drive settings, etc. 

 

Your'e probably just bored with it, or it needs some new drive parts.

I wish there was a scoot forum it's a scoot with rubber belts etc and Yamaha would care not. 😁😷

a good observation. for roughly the last ten years they've been advertising a diasil cyl coating. there is no longer a cast iron sleeve in an aluminum/alloy cyl

requires special honing if at all possible. different type of honing stones/abrasive

Turns out DiASil  is not a coating:

DiASil is abbreviated form of Die Cast Aluminum Silicon. 

20% silicon is amalgamated into cast.

Will check w/ my rebuild guy to see if they can be bored.

Guessing...yes.
