    Have i told you guys about my experience regarding the front shocks of my bike?

    I had been visiting different denters, mechanics and what not ... NEVER got the setting right. Then i opened it all up myself. It took my nearly 10 tries, before i got the perfect setting i wanted (been using it ever since and its been a blast).

    So yeah, i fully agree with your point. I know i can't do it exactly right on my first try. But i know myself, that i will open do it multiple times, to get it right, until i get it EXACTLY the way i want (thats how i am). Will surely bug you guys once i do it.

    I tried to do valve clearance last night. It seemed very easy at first, and i even adjusted the clearance just fine. I didn't realize that the piston is at wrong TDC (should be at 'compression stroke'). I might be mistaken, but it was the main point which took nearly 4 hours of night from me (That reminds me of my frist "front forks oil refilling job" lol).

    Their are two TDC positions on a 4 stroke i.e. TDC on compression stroke and TDC on exhaust stroke. So after lining up the timing marks you would check which stroke you are on by checking if all valves are closed and all rockers free of the valves. If they aren't you would turn the engine round a complete cycle and check again.

    The major problem i was facing was related to TDC only. At either strokes (compression or exhuast), the magneto just would not align perfectly on T mark.

    My first valve clearance job isn't very good. But i haven't started the bike up so can't say lol :p

    Okay so previous valve adjustment was definitely wrong (on exhaust stroke, definitely). Because the bike wouldn't start, and it was making a horrible 'clunk', coming from chamber.

    My 2nd try, just now ... seems to be better. Finally figured out the compression stroke. But a test drive made it obvious that valves are a bit too loose (cold start was absolutely amazing, though). I'll try it again, tomorrow InShaALLAH. Will leave the bike to cool off for the night.

    oh that not good experience can frustrate beginner but i say don't be frustrate
    next time do with more care & concentration and make check list first set
    the piston at top dead center in compression stroke for convenient or easy
    movement of magneto first remove spark plug than rotate it. it will move freely
    and mechanics use some kinda tool to hold magneto at T position take help from
    them in this ask them what tool it is buy that tool

    and yeah important don't forget what Dongiovvani said if with all your best efforts
    if final results are again & again resulting in loose valves than that could be case of
    inaccurate feeler gauge

    So i have done TWO more tries today.

    3rd Try ... Tappet Adjustment was again loose. I have noticed that if I try to do adjustment on a very cold engine (the result of leaving it overnight, to cool down) ... the adjustment is never done right by me.

    So on 4th Try ... i warmed the bike up for 1 or 2 minutes. Tappets were loose, so cold start was absolutely amazing (started on 2nd kick, where previously i had to give choke for like 5 minutes straight due to extremely cold weather, for the bike to idle OK). Left the bike to cool off for next 30 minutes. And then started the adjustment.

    Used this fankaari to hold the flywheel this time

    Anyway, engine needs work so there is still too much knocking sound (but much less than before) when the bike heats up to optimal temperature. Otherwise, the tappet noise is greatly reduced. Still a bit loose, as per a 3rd opinion (from a helpful neighbour mechanic/kharadia); but they are OK.

    So yeah, I DID IT ... kinda Hopefully, i'll get it done better the next time i do it (which won't be soon, not before next 1500 kms)

    I am getting close to a complete top end rebuild, and among other horrible noises coming from engine, there is one peculiar sound, most noticeable when you cover the exhaust mouth (i.e. muffle its noise with a cloth)

    Its like, ghoon ghoon, but very mild. One mechanic said it's the sound of "Cam Gerrari", whatever this thing is called. Does anyone have any idea about it? Please share.

    He also said that I don't need to buy Genuine which is very expensive, at some Rs.2600 (his words), and I should rather use Taiwani or Vendor; because as per him, both have same life cycle.

    Any help on this? @vickytulla?

    Do check the cam followers condition as well, and as far as i remember you didn't change the piston last time so better get it changed as well since it getting opened to avoid future issues.

    Abobobillys CG125 Thread  Its Evolution and Stuff I Changed -1550798

    Also get these small components replaced such as washels, 0 rings, cam gear shaft and pivot shaft.

    @r1! Wow. Thats a lot.

    How are you checking for noise, btw? The same way i did? And are your tappets making excessive noises even when they are tight?

    @Chaudhary007 ! Well when i said "complete top end rebuild", i was indeed putting emphasis on "complete". That means, i am aiming to change each and everything, including cam followers, valve springs, rockers (if needed), cylinder (definitely; not into boring and stuff) ... etc etc. I am sure its going to cost me much more than i currently have (which is like Rs.13k). But i am confident a complete to end rebuild will be more reliable in long run for me.

    Not sure about other parts but i got a quote for someone a month back and it went something like this

    Cylinder genuine AHL = 1500
    Ring piston (complete set incl pin) = 950
    Push rods = 500
    Valve Stem seals = 220
    Gasket set = 250
    Valves = 950

    Not sure about other stuff like rocker arms assembly and cam followers.
    Never go for bore and sleeve, i can't recall the number of times i have met people who start complaining a month after they had head work done about oil leakage and what not, just because they have bore done.

    Also better have a look at your clutch plates and pressure plates as well.

    Clutch Plates Rs. 2250/-
    Pressure Plates Rs. 450/-

    All these rates would be comparatively less in Lahore and labour charges cannot exceed 1-1.5k max. I think 13k is more than sufficient budget to get the entire work done.


    • Buy parts yourself from good genuine whole sale shop (AHL antenna shop preferred)
    • Never compromise on genuine parts even the small stuff.
    • Get entire work done infront of you


    I know you are experienced and have had a lot of work done but still my 2 cents
    If you ride like there's no tomorrow, there won't be.

    You already got pretty good explanation from R1 and Chaudary007...

    but other then all the stuff which you are going to replace or rebuild, do give a keen eye too the Head and try to detect any de-formity or crack or and signs of wear and tear becuase its made of aluminim and the most 'nazuk' area is very the rocker plate is fitted it gets deformed due to excessive tighting which mechnis do becuase they dont have any idea of torque values which are important while working with aluminium stuff...

    tu jab ye akheer tight ker detay hain tu Plate apni orignal jaga say thor out ho jati hai and leads to many diseases including snapping of pushrod e.t.c...

    The GOON GOON sound might alo persit even after replaing all parts which are discussed right now and that happens when the Cylender Groove in which the CAM sprocket is fitted is widened (which can be detected only by micro gauges e.t.c..)


    so long story short cylender or head ko aik dafa check ker lena k new saman fit honay per kahi dheela tu nahi they should fit like brand new .. tight and sealed..




    BTW Bike kitna Chal chuki hai (Total KM) or konsa model year hai?

    How are you checking for noise, btw? The same way i did? And are your tappets making excessive noises even when they are tight?
    Loud noise like "Grrrr Grrrr" at idle speed even after adjustment of tappets at recommended zone. During ride the noise turns like "Tak Tak Tak", these are the symptoms so no need to coverup exhaust tip to check.

    Push rods = 500
    Valve Stem seals = 220
    Gasket set = 250
    Valves = 950

    Not sure about other stuff like rocker arms assembly and cam followers.
    Never go for bore and sleeve, i can't recall the number of times i have met people who start complaining a month after they had head work done about oil leakage and what not, just because they have bore done.

    Also better have a look at your clutch plates and pressure plates as well.

    Clutch Plates Rs. 2250/-
    Pressure Plates Rs. 450/-

    All these rates would be comparatively less in Lahore and labour charges cannot exceed 1-1.5k max. I think 13k is more than sufficient budget to get the entire work done.


    • Buy parts yourself from good genuine whole sale shop (AHL antenna shop preferred)
    • Never compromise on genuine parts even the small stuff.
    • Get entire work done infront of you


    I know you are experienced and have had a lot of work done but still my 2 cents
    I planned to change the head+cylinder of CG and antenna dealer quote me:
    Head - Rs. 5400/
    Timing Cam Drive - Rs. 3300/
    Cylinder - Rs. 2200/
    Pistion - Rs. 850/
    Push Rods - Rs. 800
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

    I am pretty sure he is minting money on cylinder and pushrods. abobobilly bought Japanese (thick) ones for Rs650 how can AHL ones be of Rs800

    Why are you changing the head ? Is there any sort of deformation in it ?
    If you ride like there's no tomorrow, there won't be.

    He is minting on every item almost, changing head because of leaking issue. I will contact Makhdoom Corp today to check the prices and will share accordingly.

    --------------------------


    Thanks to all for your support and quick answers. I wanted to share my detailed experience before, but life as you know, is becoming more hectic than usual. It took me A FULL DAY to get this done. 2 Hours just to collect parts, and then 7 Hours to get the work done. The Work began at 50PM, and was effectively finished at 10:30PM. Phew

    Quiet a few things are last minute decision, by the machinist i went to. I wanted reliability for next 3-5 years, so he recommended Deluxe Valves. This time, i didn't say anything, and let him do his work. He is my neighbor, so i know that if something goes wrong, i will get his ***.


    My First Ride after the work done ... i don't want to say that it felt really really good (which it did). The stroke of the bike was even more powerful than Deluxe, and was evident from its sound. But i didn't let emotions take over, because ... well, past experiences. Pehle Happiness, then later Crying

    Anyway, today have driven the bike like 30kms, and there is an obvious different in engine behavior because of Deluxe Valves, Clutch Renewal (Size Adjustment at the Machine), and Cam Followers Change. Bike feels to be running more freely, and De-Accelerates Slower than before. I am liking the ride, however. But it also feels, well, dangerous at the same time

    *Absolutely no alteration has been done* (apart from the Deluxe Valves, and newer model Cam Followers).


    POINTS TO NOTE:

    -- Used Euro2/Deluxe Cam Follower (Newer Design).

    - Used Deluxe Valves (Grinding was done accordingly).

    - One Valve Guide was used only. Intake's Valve Guide was fine, so didn't change it. Besides, the new parts are so sh*t in quality that its not even funny. But they are cheap. Not sure if I should consider it a plug point. Anyway, still have one Brand new Valve Guide, and the shop keeper won't take it back, because it comes in pairs (intake and exhaust). (Rs.200 awein paray huay hain)

    - New Cylinder was noticeably lower in quality. Less Weight than my current one was noticeably less. (WTF is this sh*t quality?)

    - Older Push Rods (the Japenese think ones), well ... they were absolutely fine. But the machinist insisted to use the newer ones Ah well, i have them as backup pair. Btw, he was continuously saying how "Flexible" push rods are better than Rigid ones. Said, AHL's push rods are thinner but have slight flex in them, to allow for any mishap What sorcery is this?

    - ISH Brake Leathers are pretty damn good, not only for their price, but their braking power impressed me the most. I don't care if they last me barely Rs.1000 kms. They are like HALF the price of AHL Genuine, which are absolutely sh*t.

    - Can anyone tell me whats so good about this NGK G-Power Titanium Tip Spark Plug? Is this expensive for a reason? @vickytulla!? Looks sexy though :p

    - Apparently, vickytulla was right. Even after changing Cam Gear set, i can still feel the slight sound of "Ghoon Ghoon". However, i asked the Machinist (who did the engine work) and he said that it'll go away after initial running. I'll see about that.

    - As per my past experience, these people adjust tappets too tight. Had a recent bad experience with the same machinist i got the work done from :p, (where engine started to make too much noise, even after a very good tappet adjustment -- it was due to excessive wear of Rocker Base Plate). Which is why i started to adjust tappets at home, by myself. So yeah, i came home opened up the bike again (before going to work), and adjusted them by myself As expected, they were slightly tighter, with Intake being excessively tight Adjusted them in like 15 minutes this time Yeah tappet adjustment is becoming 'left hand ka khel' for me

    - A couple of months ago, a stupid car wala with blacked out rear window reversed into me at a signal, without looking back. That messed up my bike's front portion again. I have been driving it like that ever since, but wanted to change the Stem Steering (Ainak) again. Which is why i had bought one this time too.
