    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

    How much your mileage your bike has covered. If it less than 1000km, simply change the oil with AHL one. When its time for the 1st tuning, then you should use havoline as you have already bought it.

    187kms. I intend to change it at 200kms and its not Honda by the way so i have no compulsion of changing with an AHL oil.

    @r1! How much did that LED strip, which you used to mod your CG125's meter, cost you? Also, my meter blubs fuses on its own, and its really getting annoying. I was looking forward to open the meter myself to change the bulb, but was thinking of something extra, if you know what i mean.

    How can you help?

    Rs. 70/ for LED strip. Extra? You going to make it digital or adding fuel gauge or gear indicator?

    You only have to open the lower white panel. The needles are at same point its just because of camera angle.

    I went to McLeod Road today to find an LED strip, but was unable to. Someone said to check Hall Road.

    You tell me, where should i be looking at. And can you show me atleast a picture or something of that LED Strip? Also, is there any tutorial or pictures you can provide me to do that small mod?
