5.1 Introduction

Each end of the semester students of Mechanical Engineering Department will
make a project group to meet the requirements to earn a diploma in Polytechnic.
Through this project, students will be able to gain knowledge and learn many
techniques and skills. Among them is an orderly and systematic management. Students
will also be more skillful at using hand tools and machines such as welding machines,
grinding machines, drilling machines and many more.

We overcome this problem by buying a standard exhaust of Kriss MR1 motorcycle that is perfectly fit into our design. This design can run through a straight way.2 Discussion During the process of finishing the project. 1. Polytechnic Commercial Centre Kota Kinabalu). 3. This design can run through road bends. Mr. We solve this problem by buying two Yamaha LC’s mudguards and put it in the design. 2. According to what Mr. Other than having problems during the fabrication of project. Mudguards of the design is not hard enough. 2 5. Nasib (General Workers of Rehab Centre. Oxy-acetylene gas is needed in order for us to bend the pipe of the exhaust. . 2. Nasib has tested the design in a straight way for about 600 meters and road bends. These are those problems and solutions we did. We need a bending machine to bend a plate metal and put it as mudguards in the design. we have concluded that: 1. we have faced several of problems. Fortunately. Mechanical Engineering Department of Politeknik Kota Kinabalu also didn’t own an oxy-acetylene gas for the use. we also have the design being tested by Mr. Persons with disabilities might need to lean on the mudguard to support themselves in order to get on the motorcycle. we have solved all those problems that come through us. Nasib has experienced during the test. As problem stated in number (1). The problem we’re facing here is that Mechanical Engineering Department of Politeknik Kota Kinabalu don’t have any bending machine.

a collaboration between the group members is very important because without good cooperation this project could not be completed on time. Through this. Therefore. 4 To conclude. the project is made in groups to facilitate the students to do so. and also some subject such as Engineering Design and Computer Aided Design. Additional wheel (Tri-wheel) is related with Mechanical Engineering field. In completing this project. lecture. 5. Thus. and fellow member of the group. but it can strengthen good relations between group members and project supervisor. planning and implementation of projects important to produce quality. All weaknesses can be improved by criticism of the project supervisor.3 Recommendation . In addition. the values can be applied in each and every member of the group. students are able to practice what they have learned in the module subject. Teamwork is not only able to assist the students. the head of the group also plays an important role to ensure that each member has a tolerance and perform jobs assigned. besides making discussion to resolve any problems that may arise.

Through observation we made in the process of completing this project. 5 Through this JJ 614 subject. To put a stronger mudguard (for each side) so the rider can lean their weight onto it to get themselves on the motorcycle. APPENDIX A Material cost . The aim is to design the future better and more effective for consumers. we have made some suggestions as improvements and process to repair or prototype update the existing design. Mr. This included: i. Other than that. Nasib also has voiced his opinion as a suggestion to improve the design of the ‘Tri-Wheel’. To produce ‘Tri-Wheel’ that is compatible for all 4-stroke Modenas motorcycle. Among the reform proposals made are: i. To put an object as a barrier so that rider's feet are not too exposed to the ‘Tri-Wheel’ for safety purpose. we suggest that this subject should be held at each institution in Malaysia so that students can learn some practical works. ii.
