    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

    Agreed. AHL oil is not good.

    How good is Havoline 20W 50? I plan on changing 1st oil on 200kms instead of recommended 300 and want to use Havoline.

    Havoline is a motor oil i.e. not specific for bikes, though it is a thick oil it looses its viscosity specially on high speed and high temperatures when used in a bike..

    Oil life is also low, I found havoline to be just good for 600-700kms that too if u found original, as mostly fake havolines are being sold...

    @r1
    I used kixx in junoon and did not like it, though many members on PWs vote in favour of it... imo oil aik he acha ha thats liqui moly... the only oil which gives pretty good performance through out 1000kms... after that yes its performance starts to degrade too but slowly...

    Whenever I got it changed every mechanic would check the bottle with praise worthy looks, smell it, rub it in fingers and praise the oil... mostly accompanied by asking its price.

    Oil used to come out black, but i never saw clots or 'phutkian' of it... means it never became sludge and mechanics used to say jaan hai abhi b oil men...

    Though being a rough rider, i always changed at 1000kms sharp in summers. Clutch was a charm, noises were low, continuous high speed operation was possible, abhi with AHL i slow down even after driving continuous at 80 Because engine feels uneasy...

    But with LM, theres never been such issue...

    change interval normal bikes without oil filter in max summers, with fast driving i'd say 1000kms or maximum 1200kms.

    With oil filtered bikes like suzuki i'd say 1200-1500kms. Specially Gs150 can do more as it has five gears and is 150cc aluminum block so it would heat less.. id say 1500-1800kms.

    Dealers say this oil can clock 2000-2500kms easily... but you know most tests are idealistic and our bikes are low quality and pre historic...

    For example In a suzuki inazuma or similar new bike i'd say it would clock 2500kms or maybe plus.. but not in local bikes...

    Well PWs is full of good n bad reviews of zic, i was never attracted, and never tried... same cheap packing, low price and a no. Of serious allegations on this oil made me mark it in my bad books...

    Numerous car users on PWs complaint about seized engines on motorways after using zic... engine blown, they were left stranded because oil became thin as water.

    Similar reviews were found in bikes too... one of my friend had suzuki sprinter, he used zic in it and that ruined its engine and he ended up selling it...

    Maybe some fake zic is out there... but im not comfortable with a small new brand.

    Shell is a fortune 10 company... even that sells pathetic most basic oil in our country... AHL also sells cheap oil, SGO too... then why should we trust zic?

    I know many zic lovers out there would disagreee.. but i think our low quality bikes need the best protection otherwise dont expect their engines to last beyond 25-35k kms...

    The one i bought has written for motorcyles on it. I bought it from metro based on the same concern that its mostly fake in the market. If i change oil at 200kms in my bike and than again a re-change at around 700 to 800 kms, i think it will remain ok.

    By the way how much does Liqui Moli cost? The nearest dealer to me is on main defence road by the name of filter house. Maybe you know him as well.

    I cant see ur city as am using tapatalk, filter house is an importer of oils.. they usually sell at very high prices.

    LQ is available in Lahore, authorized dealer is on ferozpur road near Muslim town mor.

    Check the motorcycle engine oil thread by amjad... for detailed address and phone no. Give that dealer my(Umar Shuja) and PWs reference and u can get that oil in 750Rs, filter house pe 900-1000 ka milyga.

    Hmm alrite! This weekend am going to tuneup my bike at home. Am just sick of these mechanics. They just know how to create trouble for the owners.. Ye kharab wo kharab.. Ye lay ayen wo lay ayen! At the end they charge Rs. 500/ for just cleaning carburetor jets, air filter cleaning and sensor adjustment.

    Not officially available in Pk...
    only 20w-50 launched here. In Cg and all of our local bikes this 20w-50 works with a charm... warm up is also not required since this oil has a very low freezing point. Forget the need for a 10w.40 unless you plan to use it in a 250cc plus new engined bike.

    Plus not all oils are dry clutch safe.
    The reason for them only launching this racing 4t is its compatibility with wet clutches

    Quite costlier as well because its synthetic. ZIC 4t is the most low quality synthetic(im using in my new gs but it hasnt caused any problems). LM is more likely to be a true synthetic oil so it will be expensive.

    BTW if you're interested in tuning yourself give this guide a read

    Tuning Yamaha FZ 16 Carburetor

    its for GS carb but the principle is same for any bike

    Thanks for the info, but am sure it would not be more expensive then Mobil1.

    During the running period, dont experiment with oil change until your 1st tuning (1000 km). You need your bike to get settled. I didnt do any experimentation with oil until 3rd tuning (3000 kms). Thats when i used havoline.
