    Default Best running procedure for your bike guide

    This procedure was originally posted by chery1 iam just narrating this so that it will be easy for the new comers to get there bike properly tuned and a proper way to break in to your engine.. I personally followed this procedure and results are more than satisfactory..


    Quote Originally Posted by chery1
    The main objective should be to stay below or equal to 5.5k RPM. Not saying that this is the best possible way to break in the engine but only telling my experience.

    ==> First 200 kms @ max speed of 40km/h, 5.5K RPM
    ==> 200-500 kms @ max speed of 60km/h, 6.5K RPM(oil change)
    ==> 500-800 kms @ max speed of 90km/h, 7.5K RPM

    ==> 800-1000 kms @ max possible speed that I could get on an open road keeping in mind the safety. (oil change @ 1000kms, tuning, nuts tightened etc)

    All the stages in the run in period, the speed must be kept variating. Do not drive for more than 30-40 minutes without giving a rest to the bike for the first 300 kms.
    I followed this procedure and results are more than astonishing i feel power in my bike's engine. one more thing dont accelerate slowly.. Just give bursts of acceleration after 200 KM .. But remaining below mentioned RPM's and then suddenly decelerated and then again a burst of acceleration to reach acquired RPM. Changing oil is an important part of breaking in.. I used CALTEX havoline .. first changed at 260Km and 2nd oil change at 950KM.

    Iam completely satisfied with my bike's engine now.. The maximum speed that i touched is 125KM/h on ravi piaggio..

    Any questions are more than welcome.. Hopefully chery1 will also assist in answering questions

    Buddy.. The bike is reliable.. But it needs maintenance and keen observation regarding loose parts.. For the initial time period (during running) you may across some problems like chain cover, fuel gauge, Loose nuts and bolts. But if you are bike lover then these problems are nothing. The bike is really really comfortable atleast far more comfortable then HONDA CG125 and is suitable for longer trips. Asfar as topspeed is concerned you need a long clean patch to get it.. i touched 125km/h easily and still my bike wants to go more. and by the way my meter is accurate cuz i sync it with another bike. Acceleration is less.. But again if you need a bike with acceleration then go for CG but my friend there are more than SPEED in a complete bike. you have to look comfortability and details. Ravi has fuel gauge, gear notifier, disc brake, sporty look, great grip and comfortability. But again this bike needs regular.. I have explained the merits and demerits.. Rest is upto you.. But before making any decision.. Do take a ride.. so that you may decide easily

    I'm so glad that you achieved the desired results. Your bike would have gone one and would have touched 130km/h if you had enough track. I used to go to work at nights and used to 130km/h everyday. You know its funny, because it happened quite often that whenever I, (doing 90km/h) crossed a CG guy (who'd be doing less than that), he would come back strong and would pass me roaring like a Tiger. But when I used to catch up with the guy and cross him in my Top Gear, when the CG could do no more......and I still had miles of throttle to pull. That feeling is priceless. Its like saying without saying....'Take that! Ha .... Ha'
    Love thy Parents.

    Its entirely different.. However the burst method is the same.. That procedure has no speed limits.. But in this procedure we have speed gradully increased which i think is more suitable for enigne

    Brother I am sure you are aware of what is covered in tuning. It is precisely what you already know. It mainly covers these things;

    Getting the Air-Fuel mix ratio set up.
    Tightening of the Upper and lower tappets.
    Cleaning or changing of the Air Filter.
    Change of the Engine Lubricant.
    Checking the break and clutch wires and lubricating them.
    Checking the Front and Rear Brakeshoes and adjusting or changing them.
    Checking of the Drive chain. Tightening and lubricating it if necessary.
    Checking of the Nuts and Bolts.

    This whole Tuning in process makes sure that your bike does not go out of order all of a sudden because some problem was not anticipated beforehand due to non checking.
    Love thy Parents.

    as silverknife mentioned above your quote, should i also apply this on my unique ud-70? as i think you applied these stages of speed on you CG 125 so is it appropriate for my bike too?

    I dont have enough knowledge to answer your first two queries some expert can explain it better but about this one i can say something...burst of acceleration means well suppose if you are in third gear then you give acceleration in the same way not slowly but with some speed.In simple words ap race aik dam thori si zyada day do apni acquired speed tak pohanchnay k liye or doosri jgah RPm ka bhi khyal rakhna hai k wo kafi zyada na ho.And second thing deceleration here it means engine break.Simply you just leave your accelerator to slow down your bike but also keeping safety in mind.Apply this technique only on open area or road where there is no one or negligible traffic.Hope you understand.If not then experts are always there to help you out.Ane also chery1 has a ravi piaggio not a cg.

    @Sajid20

    Yes bro you can use the same technique in your 70cc. There should'nt be any problem. About the point # 5, r1 means that whenever you start the bike after it has been parked for a couple of hours, make sure that you warm it up properly before operating or riding it. In simple words, bike ko start ker ke kuch dair ke liye race dain so that bike ka engine warm up ho jaye. Usske baad initial 5 kms tak bike ko slow chalayen and us ke baad speed increase ker saktay hain.

    About r1's point #6, overloading the engine ka matlab hai ke bike ko bohat ziada dair tak musalsal na chlayen. 30 minutes se ziada continuously mat chalayen. Give it proper rest in the break-in perios.

    Hope this helps you
    Love thy Parents.
