    Default Honda CG125 Dream

    Honda CG125 Dream -1549959

    Hello guys with the grace of Almighty Allah i have bought honda cg125 dream its used bike
    i have already mentioned about this purchase in pw fellow "Farhansa's" thread
    i had planned to purchase 125 dream as it was launched but was unable to purchase as
    i was confused visor noise issue disappointed me in the end simply i was unable to
    purchase it but now recently i heard of its poor resale value so decided to buy it and
    luckily i found one cg dream too i was more interested to buy black but looking at condition
    of bike i decided to go for it and i am happy with my purchase i was considering to buy cg classic
    too it was an option too as personally i have not kept cg classic wanted to test and keep it but
    i rejected it and chose to buy cg dream as cg's uncomfortable drive could have troubled me alot
    i travel good on bike very often go to my village which is 70km away from my city. i have not
    personally kept cg classic but have driven of my friend its seat is very hard and bike is known for
    uncomfortable drive so in the end decided to buy new face of it cg dream i have tested 70cc,100cc
    5 gear 125cc and now 4 gear 125cc cg classic and cg dream both having same engine

    Atlas CG Dream: I have already talked about its style and looks already in this my thread i was highly
    Honda CG125 Dream - First Impressions
    inspired by its looks no doubt its attractive looking bike but at that time i had no riding experience of
    125 dream.People say its small bike and include myself too in that list too i also felt its small bike specially
    from rear and also when ever i saw it passing on roads but when i have purchased it and its all the time
    infront of my eyes its no way small the bike feels heavy in looks and while driving its like driving big bike as deluxe
    fuel tank is very good design driving position is good seat is soft and comfortable and pillion rider sits high
    sitting as pillion is good feeling way better than cg classic and as mentioned don't get misguided by your eyes
    it may look small but sitting on bike tells real story pleasure of riding.

    CG Classic & CG Dream both having same frame and same tyres but many things are changed that changes feeling
    of riding too cg dream has different riding experience as compare to cg classic

    The suspension in CG Dream is very good if i compare it with all atlas honda bikes they are the best in performance
    comparing performance of both front & rear with other ahl bikes both shocks performance. Deluxe has very good front
    shocks but rear one's are too tight for light weight person even at lowest settings they are hard and comparing to pridor
    its rear shocks are too soft fails to work with weight more than 160kg on bike and its front are good but not as good as
    cg dream they are hard too cg classic front shocks makes noise and are uncomfortable as par my experience on friend's cg
    its rear are good but can prove hard for light weight person. CG Dream front shocks are right soft absorbs jerks very nicely
    and rear one's with low wight when driving single feel good but with weight they become hard they work very good pillion rider
    might feel them hard but rider has great experience bike does not lower even when heavy pillion sitting it gives good feeling
    no jerks from rear shocks you are good at bad roads speed breakers overall suspension in this atlas honda bike is very good
    UPDATE: I must update this regarding performance of cg dream rear suspension i posted this thread quickly after buying
    bike now as i have spent more time on bike recently i happened to sit on bike as pillion rider on bad road with many bad spots i
    definitely did not enjoy its ride suspension is good at speed breakers but its hard on bad roads you are not in comfort
    when sitting as pillion rider rear shocks are hard they are good to absorb slight jerks but on bad roads experience is not good
    i am taking my words back which i said above on cg dream suspension that cg dream has best shocks in atlas honda bikes In rear
    suspension my vote still goes to CD70 it has good shocks absorbers they are better than deluxe,pridor & cg dreams shocks
    i am heavy body yet i feel its suspension hard & tough imagine if light weight person sits on bike as pillion i am disappointed with
    cg dream rear suspension when you are riding bike it has good feel but pillion is not in comfort however its front shocks are very good

    CG Dream is having same OHV 4 Gear engine acceleration and response of bike is very good i am having great feeling specially
    as i have upgraded from 70cc to 125cc
    . One thing has greatly surprised coming to performance of bike we know
    CG Dream has same frame & same ohv engine i have experience 2011 model cg and have driven few times euro 2 cg too and
    i have driven 2011 non euro cg at 100km/h the bike had serious vibration my feets were almost slipping from foot rest and bike
    did not feel in control but this is not case with cg dream i drove it on 100km/h with one hand and my friend drove it at 110km/h
    with one hand recorded video too the bike feels very much in control obviously engine screams at this speed but bike is very much
    in control very good grip and there is slight vibration in feet its not troubling i personally give concentration on vibration
    in feet till 100km/h honestly slight vibration the feeling is obviously not smooth at this speed as ohv engine screams noisy muffler
    and there is vibration in handle of bike which is notable even at lower speeds too which i was not expecting in cg dream
    as bike has complete new front so unexpected happened what was expected too much vibrations in feet i am surprised no terrible
    vibration there is some vibration but its slight and its in right foot rest

    The Gear shifts are not smooth when you shift 1st gear and leave clutch you listen kir kir khe sound can be felt in 2nd gear too but
    mostly its in first gear if you get use to of driving it you can avoid sound if you adjust to this engine else its in flaw
    I have not faced any knocking so far in engine so its knocking free earlier cg engines had knocking issue

    The bike touches 100km/h almost every time & top speed with slight hand down took it to 115km/h i weigh these days 116kg's
    these figures are obviously very good for this bike i tested accuracy with gps application in mobile at speed 60,80 & 90 the error came of 4-5km/h unfortunately have not been able to test its top speed with this app


    Adding Photo From Atlas Honda Site CG Dream Features Changes Done

    Honda CG125 Dream -1549960

    All changes are impressive to give bike complete new modern fresh look and its nice
    handle lock in ignition like deluxe & pridor also given too

    Headlight has good focus light is good on road

    But Atlas Honda messed up in visor fitting and its an shame how come they are allowing bike
    from factory going for sale with noisy visor brand new zero meter cg dream's visor makes
    noise with throttle even if bikes standing still and its really frustrating and embarrassing. Even
    while cleaning headlight you listen plastic noises which gives really cheap feeling

    Update: Atlas Honda has also messed up with seat cowl fitting it also makes noise. Noise is clearly
    noticeable such noise from brand bike is really frustrating a fellow pakwheelers had also complained
    about this issue but this was not found in cg dream of fellow Farhansa & Turab like visor noise its present
    in all cg dream's but i guess definitely Atlas has messed here too recently i noticed noise from rear cowl
    some times its listenable and some time noise vanished you can clearly listen noise when sitting as pillion
    also noticeable when driving alone too



    CONS

    *Noisy Visor
    *Noisy Gear Box
    *Noisy Rear Cowl
    *Vibration In Handle
    *Sporty Seat Bar: is good looking but its not convenient for lifting bike its strong but when lift bike
    with hand you feel pain in hand there surface underneath it should have been without edges
    *Brakes: are not effective to stop bike immediately front is good but rear one is not good this makes
    cg125 dangerous it has powerful engine and very good acceleration but poor brakes can take you to
    trouble easily

    CONS (Update)

    *Tappet Cover Oil Seepage
    *Oil Leakge From Tachometer Cable

    Updating for two cons and faults i have found in cg in engine and i think its common error in almost
    all cg125 engines for the first tappet cover oil stains now either its flaw by atlas honda or its because
    of improper method of mechanics after the first tuning i always see oil stains on tappet cover i clean
    after a day or two day running they again appear so you have to clean it else they will be there other
    major flaw you will find in most cg's is oil leakage tachometer cable in my case i have already told in
    detail its been really frustrated issue for me you can find links in first post

    Some words on issue told in first list of CONS

    Noisy Visor issue has been sorted out by atlas honda i have asked 3-4 guys who bought brand new cg dream
    they said no issue of noisy visor though it frustrated me alot i have gotten rid of it by using rubber

    Noisy Gearbox issue is there present and Noisy Cowl in my case present though not many complained of it
    but i personally there is need of improvement there too hope atlas has done some thing

    Vibration In Handle this is not serious there was some vibration, Now its not annoying almost gone from bike
    after tightening of bolts

    FUEL AVERAGE: See Post #50,#57,#274

    FINAL THOUGHTS CG DREAM:

    I will start with the major problems that have been found in new cg dream after installation of new
    parts to change its looks and those are no 1 is noisy visor its really frustrating embarrassing i feel sorry
    for cg dream owners who spent money on brand new bike and its visor making noise from day 1 bike bought
    from showroom and 2 problem i found its rear seat cowl also makes noise now such noises should have not
    been present in bike else other common issues that are found in cg classic engine those are also present in bike
    as bike has same engine,frame & same tyres same brakes.

    Now coming to its good despite those issues which really should have not been present in bike still all new look feels good
    and new suspension new seat and new parts makes riding pleasure driving position is good & bike is comfortable to drive
    it does not tire you bike is good for long drives road grip is very good even with heavy weight you can take turns easily
    bike does not shake on high speeds its stable vibrations are there in bike handle & foot rests but they are not troubling
    new sporty seat is soft and comfortable to sit front shocks are very good rear are tough but like atlas honda bikes cg & deluxe
    i think same mistake done in cg dream i don't have best experience of cg classic rear shocks i can say from deluxe it has tough
    rear shocks overall cg dream like all atlas honda bike has some issues but still overall good bike gives better driving experience
    and feel as compare to cg classic and price difference is not much its available just 3k more than cg classic so its good to have
    changed new shape bike we are not expecting new latest engines from atlas honda so atleast good to have changes in years old
    bike but those noises from parts should not be present in bike that shows poor work atlas did good work in case of CD100 to Pridor

    In the End i highly recommend atlas honda kindly do remove those noises from visor and rear cowl alteast from upcoming cg dreams that are being manufactured in your factory as with such noises its flop bike and people would not take interest in cg dream

    Default Oil Leakage From Tachometer Cable - 2nd Time

    first of sharing link of my post in which details of first time are given #46

    So after around 3500-4000km again faced same oil leakage from same way
    went to mechanic who had before also replaced seal without removing right crankcase
    cover

    hoping for not facing this problem again very soon as its irritating thankfully i have found
    mechanic who is able to replace seal without need of removing right crankcase cover

    UPDATE:

    This 2nd time seal replacement worked only for few hundred km's than again it started to leak
    so this time i thought of getting it replaced as suggested by honda mechanic according to him only
    way to replace it is by opening right crankcase cover

    But it took lot of time i ignored this issue and atlast when bike touched 10,000km i thought of replacing it
    as atlas recommends cleaning of centrifugal oil filter cleaning at 12,000km so job was done on 30 Sept odo 10,300km

    Farhansa bro i have faced issue with tachnometer cable seal
    first time as i had bought used 1800km driven already this issue
    was present so i had replaced now after 3 to 4k km again it leaked
    and now again i have replaced hoping not to face this issue again very soon

    if you are referring to oil drain bolt seal its fine no issue
    baaqi yes i see oil stains on tappet cover which is normal to spot
    on most cg though i really i don't like those stains its happening after
    first time tuning done mechanic says its normal nothing to worry or change
    tappet cover seal as now this issue is not going i am thinking one time trying
    replacing seal with new seal if still i see oil stains than its manufacturing error
    in cg125

    Amjad bhai in my view for not switching off to YBR may be the mechanic/parts problem in your area even for AHL bikes then how could you get a best mechanic or parts for YBR there.

    I would never recommend a used YBR as it was my thought before purchasing it but i took decision for a new one because of the engine Break-in period onwhich the whole life of bike depends. Bro people don't bother about break-in period and they ruine the bike at it's start.

    Brother i sold my pridor in 65k and this price was my demand. The person in my office immediately bought it due to the fact that he looked may bike from the day first and the care i kept. And I think it was a good price for a 2012A Pridor.

    Default CG Dream Broken Visor Changed

    My CG Dream visor was broken in accident some time ago today I changed it myself (link to previous post #88)

    I did the job with patience Alhamdulillah I was able to successfully install it these plastic parts needs light
    hand don't need hammer hands I refer to hathorha mechanics they are always in hurry and use force only
    these parts needs care as If you hurry and use force only chances are you may break some important clip

    Bought the visor in 1100 rupees the price for visor was told by atlas honda 1000 rupees but atlas honda parts
    don't sell parts in right prices they charge high extra money you see even an item whose price was public told
    by atlas he was asking 1200 i said him its 1000 as it was told in posters that is official price but he said in 1000
    we get thus price is 1200 but in the end i gave him 1100


    Honda CG125 Dream -1603584

    Honda CG125 Dream -1603585

    Honda CG125 Dream -1603586

    Sharing pic of this clip i asked Atlas parts dealer if these are available he said no they
    are not and there are some other clips in visor too i asked for he said no they are not
    available these tiny parts are necessary parts but mostly you will find answer no for them
    yes usually they don't get broke in accidents etc but they can lost as when they are loose
    they can come out of its place what if some one loses them and same complain i have for
    rubbers there are some positions in which rubbers are installed i consider them very important
    but will see they won't be available in market too atlas must provide these minor parts to parts
    dealers also no matter if their sales are low they won't cost must to parts dealer but they are
    important accessories

    I don't like these clips that atlas honda uses first of all as told they are not available at ahl parts dealer
    2nd most important they are not best to hold light with visor in its position once they are removed they
    become loose they don't properly hold light its better they find some other mechanism for this better use
    some screw which firmly hold light

    hand don't need hammer hands I refer to hathorha mechanics they are always in hurry and use force only
    these parts needs care as If you hurry and use force only chances are you may break some important clip

    Bought the visor in 1100 rupees the price for visor was told by atlas honda 1000 rupees but atlas honda parts
    don't sell parts in right prices they charge high extra money you see even an item whose price was public told
    by atlas he was asking 1200 i said him its 1000 as it was told in posters that is official price but he said in 1000
    we get thus price is 1200 but in the end i gave him 1100

    Sharing pic of this clip i asked Atlas parts dealer if these are available he said no they
    are not and there are some other clips in visor too i asked for he said no they are not
    available these tiny parts are necessary parts but mostly you will find answer no for them
    yes usually they don't get broke in accidents etc but they can lost as when they are loose
    they can come out of its place what if some one loses them and same complain i have for
    rubbers there are some positions in which rubbers are installed i consider them very important
    but will see they won't be available in market too atlas must provide these minor parts to parts
    dealers also no matter if their sales are low they won't cost must to parts dealer but they are
    important accessories
    Bro can this visor fit on deluxe ? And 1100 is the price of complete headlight or just red visor part?
    And which bulb is fitted in light and its watts ?
