Scootertrip: Turkey

Day 4-7: Turkey

day 7: going through Turkey II

Mosque made us pretty scared in the morning :) At 4:45 started to play the prayers very loud and we had no idea what is going on, jumping out from the bed. See the movie..



Then we could not sleep anyway, so we set out on a journey soon in the morning. Today was supposed to be long, optimistic version was 600kms, which we were successful to accomplish. Again, we have to cope with overheating and again after several hundreds of kilometers. Again getting the air out, which Radek used to practice his conversation skills in Turkish :)


From Radeks scooter starts to hear some knocking, still not that obvious but hearable. Let's hope the engine will make it until end, we are only in a third of our trip. Radek does not waste his time and look for a replacement bike. This model seems fine, he would not get bored by driving as it has speakers, unfortunately there is only one song on the playlist :D


In the evening we are finally getting to Trabzon, where we booked some dirty ho(s)tel for 37 Euro, which is really horrible, very noisy and smells, but they let us to give the scooters inside. Mosque next door seems to be fine as we already got used to the prayers. Going to bed and tomorrow comes Georgia.

day 6: going through Turkey

In the morning we were supposed to leave istanbul. After 100kilometers it finally seemed that we left the city. Really huge.. During the day the scooter from Radek started to be again overheated. But why? Whole yesterday everything was totally fine. I touched the radiator and it was cold. Did again the procedure to get the air from the circuit, which worked, but we were not able to fill more fluid, as it was still pretty hot. Dinner was on the petrol station, same as the shower, which helped after 500kms and we started to look for a place to sleep. Right in the first village we saw a group of men, so Radek started his communication skills and we were given a place on the field next to the mosque. 



Then they guided us through, where is a water, which was very nice. We sleep with a good feeling that nice people are everywhere. 

day 5: Istanbul, simcard

In the morning we are driving direction to Istanbul with the plan to buy a simcard first, to have a map and internet available. This proved to be almost impossible, as there are several troubles with simcards in Turkey, it has to be registered to the person, you cannot get them everywhere etc.. Finally, in the 5th shop we visited we were lucky to get one, althought it was activated the next day. Istanbul is huge, I mean really huge. You drive 50 kms through the city and you are still not in the centre. Acoomodation was nice (Rhythm hostel), but we had to find extra parking. In the evening was a short visit of the centre and we went to bed afterwards getting ready for the next day.


day 4: Bulgaria - Turkey, shots from shotgun

Today was a bit of relaxing day. We had breakfast-lunch at Deans place and took out the thermostat from Radek's scooter. Then we set out to the Turkish border with a plan to oversleep somewhere at the border. In the last city of Bulgaria we met a lovely boy and guys from Poland travelling on big bikes. We had some beer with them and decided to join for the night. This was brilliant, in the nature, behind the border with Turkey.



The guys were pretty cool, travelled a lot, so they told us some stories and gave several advices. Then came some local guy with a shotgun and started to shoot in the air for fun by the midnight :)

Baterie do skútru skladem

Běžně držíme skladem akumulátory pro veškeré typy skútrů, kompletní seznam najdete v sekci univerzální díly - elektrika na našem eshopu. Vybrat si můžete buď klasickou nalévací, nebo gelovou (bezúdržbovou) baterii. V obou případech dostanete v balení náplň, kterou nalijete do baterky. Poté je třeba nechat čerstvě nalitou baterii cca 30 minut odstát a je připravena k použití. Pokud chcete, aby vám baterie dlouho vydržela, máme pro vás pár tipů: Po nalití baterku začněte ihned používat, je třeba ji "naformovat," tj. několikrát vybít a nabít. Nejhorší co můžete udělat je baterii nalít a nechat třeba měsíc až dva stát, poté je většinou již nepoužitelná Nalévací baterii alespoň 3x za sezónu zkontrolujte a dolijte články destilovanou vodou. U gelových baterií tato povinnost odpadá Přes zimu nikdy nenechávejte baterii ve skútru a v chladu. Skladovat by se měla v teplotách okolo 15-20 stupňů a alespoň 3x za zimu dobít do plné kapacity Při správné údržbě je životnost skútrové bater

J-Costa vs. Multivar

Rozhodli jsme se rozetnout spekulace o tom, jestli je variátor J-Costa lepší než Malossi Multivar. Odpověď není tak úplně jednoznačná! Máme tu pro Vás jako první v ČR srovnávací test: Maxiskútr První srovnání proběhlo na skútru Aprilia Sportcity 200 (motor Piaggio). Zde je graf z motorové brzdy: Co na grafu ale neuvidíte je pružnost při jízdě, která je u obou variátorů v porovnání se sériovým na nesrovnatelně lepší úrovni. Ještě zajímavější než graf jsou ale hodnoty zrychlení v následující tabulce: Odpověď na otázku: Je J-Costa lepší než multivar je u motoru Piaggio 200 jednoznačná: J-Costa je jasný vítěz srovnávacího testu. Skútr 50 ccm Druhý test proběhl na skútru Gilera Runner 50 (rok výroby 2007, najeto 7600km). Do testu jsme přidali v ČR příliš neobvyklý variátor Polini Speed Control. Všechny variátory byly srovnávány tak jak jsou dodány zákazníkům, tj. se sériovými válečky, bez dolaďování spojky a jakýchkoliv dalších úprav. Zde je graf z brzdy: I z následující tabulky

Honda Forza 125 tuning

Honda Forza 125 - Malossi Multivar a výfuk Akrapovič. Byli jsme příjemně překvapení výkonem 14k po úpravě, který běžně mají 200ccm motory Piaggio. Na ten objem a váhu jede skútr opravdu výborně! Níže video z jízdy. Namontovali jsme tyto díly: https://www.scootland.cz/zbozi/malossi-variator-multivar-honda-od-2013/ https://www.scootland.cz/zbozi/akrapovic-vyfuk-akrapovic-racing-line-forza-125/
