2008 144sx

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 144sx. I have been reading about the detonation issues with it being 9 years old should I still have to worry about these. I run it on 97 octane and 150ml oil to 5 litres

The bigger issue has the cylinder been updated. The first 2 years of that bike had a design flaw that would blow up pistons. Check to see if it has the 09 or newer cylinder. Sorry i dont have the part number for you.

Just checked and bit of go ogling it doesn't have the upgraded cylinder. Can get an 09 one which has had a bit of a repair and replate. Would I be safer going for it. Also would I need to get an 09 head. Thanks in advance

Yes, I would.  07 and 08 are known for this issue, and the only fix is the 09+ stuff.
