    Lightbulb Honda CG 125 Maintenance

    Hi, all PakWheels members. I am creating this thread to get your experience and tips on how to well maintain a Honda CG 125 bike.
    The PakWheel forum is full with different information regarding bikes, i wanted to create a collective thread specifically for Honda CG 125 bike.

    SO please share your knowledge with all the PakWheels members and ofcourse with me too.

    In general we have following questions:

    1. What petrol to use?
    2. What engine oil is best?
    3. After how many Kilometers the engine oil should be changed?
    4. What is the correct Air pressure for front and rear tyres?
    5. Which tyre brand is best Servis, Panther or any other?
    6. How can we maintain the shine and polish of the chrome and different body parts
    7. How to service or wash your bike?
    8. How to avoid rust on different parts of the bike?
    9. Which parts of the bike can be obtained from Honda Parts dealers like Clutch levers, logo, etc to replace damaged parts of your bike.

    And many more things...

    So please guys give your worthful advice for all Honda CG 125 bike lovers.

    I myself own a Honda CG 125 bike, and i am new to this bike.


    Here is the summary of answers to my queries at PakWheels:
    1. Shell and Caltex
    2. Caltex Havoline
    3. Every 1000Kms
    4. Front 30 and Rear 40
    5. Service, or Panther, or Diamond
    6. Waxing your bike atleast twice a month, using Turtle Chrome wax for Chrome parts, Formula 1 Wax for painted parts and 7 CF for leather, tyre and plastic parts
    7. Avoid Washing your bike at HIGH pressure WATER, especially from service stations, wash your bike yourself on week ends using normal water pressure or wet towel or sponge
    8. Regular waxing keeps rust away, and dont leave your bike wet dry it with micro fiber towel
    9. All original parts can be obtained by authorized dealers of Atlas Honda, check Atlas Honda website for dealers in your area, S5 dealers are the best.


    My Personal Experience for Waxing:
    - Formula 1 Carnauba Wax for Painted Parts
    - Turtle Chrome wax for Chrome parts
    - 7 CF for leather, tyre and plastic parts

    - Use soft towel, or spare soft t-shirt for cleaning your bike

    All formula 1 products can be seen here:
    http://www.formula1wax.com (Don't know if all are available in Pakistan)

    Many thanks to contribution of:
    @r1, @ha125, @pico

    Exclamation Urgent Help required!!!!!

    Salam to everyone. I am having a strange problem, and had this second time. As i am new to CG 125 therefore few things might come up as surprise for me.

    I also posted about it previously.

    I parked my bike last week end, and after that did not use the bike at all, i always have the fuel turned off when not in use.

    Today on Monday when i prepared to leave, and turned my fuel to On, the petrol started to overflow, and lot of fuel went out, i turned it off.

    I switched on the bike and hit few kicks to see if it starts? it did start a bit and than goes off, same happened couple of times.

    After waiting few minutes i turned on the fuel again, this time the fuel did not overflow, and the bike started as well.

    Please please help me with this, is this anything abnormal or it does happen like this.

    Yes, this is strange, i asked a mechanic on my way, he said there may be trash which cleared out, dont understand whats the reason.

    May be leaving the bike idel for two days, and petrol left out in the carburetor is causing this issue .

    If next time it happens then turn off the petrol and loose this highlighted screw a bit and allow the carb to release the petrol little bit and then start the bike and give it throttle around 5000-6000rpm and then tight the screw.

    Bro Formula-1 Scratch Out is best for any kind of bikes+it can be used on tanks, side covers, exhaust, suspensions, rims, mudguards and if bike is getting rust then you can use Turtle Wax and Brasso for chrome parts.

    Thanks @r1 for the advice, i will definetly check that.

    I went to a Honda mechanic in the evening, he said fuel gets evaporated from carb slowly, if all the fuel gets evaporated a pin inside carb lose its adjustment, when fresh petrol from tank rush in the carb the overflow can happen due to this. He adviced me to first try to start the bike with fuel off, couple of kicks will jerk the pin/jet back in order and then turning on the fuel will not overflow. I will try this technique as well.

    @r1 did you have such issue ever? do you leave your bike with fuel On or Off?

    remember to change front fork oil every year to keep them in good condition. Buy a spray can of chain wax for the chain, use it every month and remove and clean out the chain every year too then immerse in molten chain wax and let to dry then install. - a used chain helps in installing a chain without removing the magento cover.

    a little tip to help keep the chaincase secured, use a drop of threadlock on the chain case screws, that way they wont vibrate loose. For optimum performance from tyres keep the pressures as front 25 psi and rear 35 psi.. The front tyre will ride square to the road this way.

    Does this mean leaving petrol Off for too long can cause this issue. As i am keeping the fuel Off all the time and only turn On when i need to use my bike. I will leave the fuel On this week end and check whether overflow happen again. Thanks @r1 for your time and advice.
