Welcome to Underbone Tuner

Underbone tuner is a free online magazine for Underbones, Scooters, Backbones and occasionally we might squeeze in a big bike or two . We have been covering small motorcycles modifying culture for over 8 years already and still counting. We have the latest updates/news on motorcycle racing events from all over the country such as circuit, motocross, flat track, endurance, trail and supermoto. We cover motorshows from all over the country. We cover the latest bike launches and the latest trends in bike modifying culture.

But at the core of Underbone Tuner is the bike modifying / customizing culture. We scour the country for the best motorcycle builders/modifiers. We feature the owners of these amazing bikes and the talented teams and individuals behind these bikes. We give you the story behind those builds and hopefully we inspire others to keep this fascinating culture alive.

This website is dedicated to all motorcycle enthusiasts, this our life, this is our passion, this is who we are. We may be riding different bikes but we share the same fascination and love for motorcycles. We are all brothers in two wheels.

The 1st Hubless, Intercooler Turbo Charged Yamaha MIO Sporty in the Philippines.

The bike was built by brothers Roel and Rosel Kong of Cebu City. The brothers wanted to
build a bike that was truly unique and challenging so they decided to make
a hubless scooter. Roel spent countless hours in research, design and development
together with the crew at C&N Engineering who have never tried this before. But sheer
determination on Roel's part guided the team to come-up with a Custom Machined
Hubless front wheel assembly which was developed from multicab rims and the single side
lefty swing arm assembly was entirely made from scratch to accommodate the wheel and
also its disk rotor and caliper assembly was specially machined to go hand in hand with the
design. It is certainly a testament to Filipino ingenuity of finding ways to bring bright and
complex ideas into reality.

Modifications did not stop there as the brothers were not content with off the shelf upgrades
to the engine so they installed an ATV turbo charger system imported from UK and custom
machined the components to fit their engine setup. To keep the high performance engine
cool they installed a custom machined intercooler from a car
to compliment their turbo system. For the rear suspension the brothers did a custom made
mono-shock system specially designed for their bike. For the exhaust system they had the
exhaust manifold specially made to accommodate the ball bearing turbo assembly and the
exhaust canister is from YYPang Exhaust.

The brothers would like to thank R.U.A motorparts, Genwin concept motorparts,
Motowerks City Customs, Mio Nation and DDM for helping them secure the parts needed
for their bike.

Bike: 09 Yamaha Mio Sporty converted to Mio Soul MX
Owner: Rosel and Roel Kong
Club: Motozoom
