Just after a month after its launch. The 2014 Yamaha Lagenda 115Z Fuel Injection already making its way to be modified for racing.
The riders of Thailand just got their new choice for an underbone 115 FI system with the recently launched Yamaha Spark 115i with YEC_FI (yeah, that is the official name, YEC_FI not YEC-FI). Thais has enjoyed FI bikes for a long time and this FI fitment to this bike is no surprise. One of the most interesting thing about FI system is about the fuel-efficiency that is better than the carburettor system. Honda Super Cub 110 Pro which is a modern retro bike in Japan that is equipped with PGM-FI system can achieve 66.2 km/l which is already a great feat, but this Yamaha Spark 115i can go up to 84.15km/l as tested by journalist. Even if the data in too big to believe, having the fuel efficiency rating at 70km/l is already good enough to beat the Honda Super Cub Pro! You should be noted that the journalist really wanted to test the fuel-efficiency, so he rides the bike at 40-60km/h only.

I have replaced the stock Yamaha gas rear suspension with a new product from Motor Star which is the 2-spring. As the name suggests, this Motor Star rear suspension comes with two different spring thickness attached to the suspension setup. Two different thickness of the spring means that it have difference rebound rate. The thinner one at the bottom are used to absorb the small bump and maintain the comfort when riding in straight line. The one that is thicker on the top is used to absorb harsher and bigger bumps on the road. In theory, this would be a great setup setup since the suspension are now not too hard or too soft.
