    Red face My new CG Classic... (automotorsport_lover)

    Updated: Bought Honda CG 125 Classic on 31st May 2014

    My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430374My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430375


    Ride & Impression:
    After riding Yamaha Junoon for 4 years, CG feels quite different.
    Its not smooth or refined as Junoon but surely is brute raw power! Tourqe at low RPMs is good but at 6000-9000 Rpms you can feel the best acceleration!

    I'd describe CG Classic as: Simple, Robust, Reliable & Raw. A work horse.


    Build Quality:
    Build quality of Honda is indeed good, nice paint & chrome finish along with a crisp sounding engine. Another thing that I have noticed in Honda is that it does not need much running/break-in. I have driven her below 50Km/hr for the first 500Kms and after that I felt she had broken-in enough. I started slowly increasing speeds & lately I have also touched 90 km/hr but no signs of her getting annoyed or something. Did't even feel her heating up... this makes me think that either Honda bikes have better engine fitting or these come half broken-in from the factory... Im not sure though.

    I also noticed that the user manual of my Honda did not stress that much on the break-in process as much as my Yamaha's did. I now frequently cruise at 70-80Km/hr and she never minds!


    Flaws:
    There are no major flaws a.k.a. factory defects in a CG. Yes the rims needed allignment (well that goes for all new bikes) but I don't mind since I had to get the rims and mudgaurds compunded anyway, so getting them alligned as well wasn't something that bothered me. The whole job was done expertly and neatly by a local shop and they charged only 350Rs.

    Yes the front tyre is a little defected as it wobbles, the wobble is not that much so for now I am ignoring it but I might go for a claim if company allows claim on tyres.

    As claimed by some of the PW members that new CGs have these problems:
    2nd gear khatak sound - is not present!
    Khee Khee sound - is not present!

    Patakha Sound from exhaust while DECELERATING through engine braking IS present in all new Euro 2 Models. Some have more, some have less.

    Update: First detailing after purchase pics on page 11

    Update: New detailing stuff pics Pg# 12

    The surprise is that not even a single part of bike got rusted i inspected the bike myself after he came back from the tour. He planned to sell the bike after the recent tour but decided to keep it because he isn't facing any issues he said that 'Yay bike tow bas chalta hi jaraha hai'

    Alhamdulillah got a GS150 today.. i know its a little out of the bounds of this post but just wanted to alert everyone as we're having a similar discussion. Thanks to @vickytulla and @auto for their precious words of advice, brothers you really helped me. Special thanks to @vickytulla he always gave me accurate advice without bringing in his personal preferences.

    Initial impressions - As bike is in running to RPM 3-4 tak hi rakh raha hun but man.... 4 tak hi itni uth jati ahi ye. Rode sprinter afterwards and SERIOUSLY noticed the power difference. MaShaAllah.. thanks again everyone

    First compulsory oil changed today at 500kms mark... it is a very positive step by atlas that they have given a maintenance schedule in the owners manual and have made dealers bound to sign and stamp it... this way dealers have to own their responsibility and everything is documented.

    Weekend wash & wax!
    Thats a regular retuine on Sunday, the first thing I try to do on Sundays...

    A thorugh wash using my Liqui Moly wash & wax shampoo and Turtle ice detailing spray to add some shine and protection. Maintaing a black bike is going to be a challange, looking forward to buy a good caranuaba wax such as Mothers or Megauirs
    but I feel they are quite expensive, but still... Black needs more love! I see this expense coming and coming soon! Its unavoidable!

    MashaAllah.. looking great ;D i washed my Gs i the morning too(2 hours).. but it wasnt the traditional wash.. i just soaked a cloth and rubbed it.. then a dry cloth to rub the water off. Thats a time taking process. Reason: too much wires and stuff on this bike, dont know how to wet wash it! i wished i could just take a pipe and hose it down!

    My Junoon was too much water sensitive, although this one has more exposed wires than junoon. She would not easily start after a wash..

    But thankfully cg started on the first kick although I washed her with plenty of water!

    Avoid dry dusting, use a detailing spray, otherwise u'd get a lot of swrils and spider web marks!

    My sprinter was extremely water resistant, trust me i used to hose the meter as well but never had any problems! Started as if nothing had happened. @gull_s_777 can the GS be wet washed without any major issues?

    I am terrible when it comes to cosmetic care of my bike. I hardly ever wet wash my bike. Though whenever i do , i just start the water pump and go crazy. No protective measure whatsoever, and no trouble starting it afterwards.

    Black color is very difficult to maintain. Dust is more prominent on this color.

    Automotorsport its not big deal maintaining black color bike
    it may seems in initial difficult to maintain but i can tell from
    my experience you can very easily maintain this black color CG
    i maintained my pridor for one & half year and it was in excellent
    condition when i sold it and it was complete full black bike
    CG has only tank & side covers rest fenders are chrome

    Don't concentrate on minor swirl marks they will come on black color
    just use good quality wax like meguiars gold class wax it will keep your
    bike shiny and will keep them safe from getting minor swirl

    Liqui moly hard wax is good but im displeased with it on the following points:
    It is a bit smelly
    It is a bit irritating on hands
    It is paint abrasive
    It isnt that easy to apply n remove, it is easy but im looking for more convenience
    Due to abrasive properties it is not a daily use wax, it should be used after one or two months max. (The bottle says 3 or 4 applications a year but it is Pk)
