    Default My New Ride SP125 ....plz Say MashAllah!

    salam guys and Eid mubarak to u all ... so finally after keep changing my mind and much khuaari i finally purchased super power 125 which has got some serious bad repo on PW ..lollxx ..but Allhamulliah i m very satisfied with this bike so far... now i am sharing my long experience below ..



    • i had a 70cc chonda for 7 years now recently its engine had lost its power ...initially i thought for engine overhaul and alteration with 100cc cylinder but after some researching,discussing with fellow pw members and noticing mechanics(ustaaad) work here, dropped that idea ... now i was looking for a bike in 100cc category ... i visited akbar road, u.p. more mkt many times and rode,checked almost all bikes in 100cc category ...as unique 100 prouction being halted, i found sp100 to be the best value for money but the only downside was its ride was not so comfortable due to huge fuel tank placement ... otherwise its a very good bike from every aspect and build quality is good to ... then i checked cd100 and no doubt its the most economical and comfortable bike available here ...i finalize it but the problem arose as it has very limited sale here in khi,most people dont even recognize it and i found only 2,3 used/abused models that too of 2005 which was a flop model ... now buying a 0 meter honda in khi was out of question ...


    so last sunday i was in bikes market in hope to find cd100 but didnt find any ...then i thought why shouldn't to check 125 models ..again honda was out of question so i checked unique 125 ... i didn't like it as its same centuries old design, no discs, stiff shocks and fuel tank sounded like a tin can ...then i checked this, the taboo ... the sp125 ... and surprisingly i found it to be very good in its price tag and bought it right away ...its 2012 early model ...

    so here is a short review

    The PRos

    1)perfect disc brake with front hydraulic shocks working like malayi

    2)awesome (karak)sound

    3)comfortable riding position as its a copy of honda,

    4)big a$$ tires of service with excellent road grip same as honda,

    5)powerfull engine, it easily touches 95 with slight acceleration,didnt check the top speed as my riding top speed is 80 anyway

    6)very less vibration for 125 ... at 90 slight vibration starts in foot pedals only ..no vibration in handle so far

    7) last but not least is the price in which u got all these features

    The Cons

    1)plastic and plastic ...as almost 40% of bike consist of plastic body parts and they are not well fitted, so they got loose with time, making lousy noises giving the impression of cheap build but not a big issue, i just picked used rubber pieces from mechanic shop an fitted them in the vibrating areas and now alhamdulliah bike is sound free ..no more khat phat

    2) despite of big a$$ crystal headlight, the light is not upto mark ..my previous bike's stock round headlight was smaller and more powerfull than this ..

    3)chrome finish is not up to mark ..but thats usual with every other bike these days..

    4)like other users pointed out ... chain sprocket is of cheap quality ... i will change it after it got worn off ..(pakistani mentality )

    users also said its carb is not good ..dont know, i will update it after checking the average of bike and there is no problem in cold starting so far, starts every time in first kick...people also complain about its hard seat but i found it soft and comfortable maybe because its already used ..also the dual horn on this ride is way to high ...pedestrian almost jumps when i honk it ...

    because of these little issues, its not a bike for rider who just want to purchase and ride a trouble free bike ... u hv to spent some time and money with it ...

    my old chonda jialing 70cc..

    My New Ride SP125 ....plz Say MashAllah! - 415399 plz post ur modified bikes pics 2012 06 07 085130 tonemapped


    UPDATE


    average bike giving so far is 48km/l ... average speed is 50 to 60km/h ... no useless acceleration, idle set @ 1k rpm and always speed up after proper warmup ....

    guys i m facing a problem from few days ... some days ago rear brake start making whistling noises when applied ....so i took it to hathora ustaad and he somehow managed to open the tire after hard work of 30 mins ... brake shoe was in perfect condition but he said there is some moisture etc and cleaned the brake shoe and drum with sand paper and then refitted the tire ..

    it worked for 1 day ..next day again same whistles when brake applied and now its gone insane ... its acting like a disk brake when u apply even a little pressure it just jams the tire instantly with weird noise ... like a train brake .... i went to hathora ustaad again and now he says this is the common problem in deluxe 18" rim and he have to remove the tire and put some leather in the drum .. i was like wtf man...gtfo ..

    so what can be the problem ..i suspect brake shoe quality could be an issue although it looked fine ...

    one more thing, these are some really big a$$ brake shoes ..i looked for them in my area and the biggest i found was only gs150 ones and they were looking tiny toony infront of deluxe shoes ...

    Buddy i hope your issue gets fixed asap..This shouldn't have happened in a new ride..Make sure that the problem is really the drum brakes,,before you buy the AHL 1s.

    these mechanics dont use measurements ..

    try to check ur drum for roundness .. is it buldging ? check ur brake show try new brake shoes .. even if they look ok .. and if issue is not solved the new brake shoes wont go zaya .. apply some thick grease on the spindle/shaft where teh two faces of the brake show rests and moves outward .. taka jo movement ha wo smooth ho jaya .. measure outer dia of the brake shoes when they are fitted onto its brake . and also measure the inner dia of drum ..

    Gloves feels shorter
    a little longer may be good as they need to block air entering into jacket as well.
