RPM at certain speeds (Koup 1.6A)

Post by NiVleK on 1st March 2010, 9:56 pm

Just a verification check for Koupians here.

My Koup RPM hovers around these ranges and they do seem a little high.

  • 80km/h - 2.1K RPM
  • 90km/h - 2.5K RPM
  • 100km/h - 2.9K RPM
Anyone can see what is theirs and if this is normal?

still running in, but I do realize if you speed not there, like below 60km/h, the RPM seems funny, the way we rev.

It is up to you one.

The only purpose of running in is for the engine pistons debris, which in today technological standards have far improved in terms of quality.

So running in? I dunno. I just try not to drive beyond 100km/h and 3.5K RPM before my first servicing.

normal, bro. koup's gearing is quite low. good for urban traffic conditions as it's mated to the usable torque range for a more 'spirited' feel.

Just came back from Johor during the weekend, saw 1 of our bros I think, bronze Forte.

Back to topic: I tried so hard to maintain below 3k RPM but failed as I was running in, but on NSH, bit hard especially when cars come so fast from behind. 1 thing I find, yes above 60km/h, very smooth already.

Tyres noisy when above 100km/h, normal. Suspension though not very stiff, bit quite stable. Steering heavy, stable when at high speeds. Still not on the manual overdrive though, wait after my 1st servicing.

Stable!! i agree!. i take corner at higher speed than i do with my other car. and ya, reaching 80 to 90, the car really smooth. 3rpm i can reach almost 110. down slope at 3rpm, reaching 120 :xbut did u notice a drop in rpm at aprox gear 2 to 3 ? somewhere about 50 - 70 that range ?

Yes, the RPM drops to like 1500, 1600, then the sound like wanna die like that, the world suddenly slows down. Not sure if there's any way to improve that. Cos before that was constant till you hit 50km/h.
