    Default My Ravi Piaggio 2011

    Bought in 2011, bike has complete almost 4 years with almost 50K running. There are some major and minor changes made so far.

    1. Rear tyre changed to 100/90 Dunlop
    2. HID installed
    3. Charade ignition coil with iridium tiped plug
    4. Studs sportster for touring
    5. Handle changed to AHL Deluxe raised handle
    6. Mirror indicators

    Major locations covered so far:

    Karachi, Uthal, Hingol, Kund Malir, Quetta, Ziarat, Islamabad, Neelum Valley, Lahore, Multan, Bahawalpur, Chistian.

    And bike still going good, although the fat tyre has forced bike to consume oil on long runs but its till performing good.

    the tapets are not supposed to be tightened at this point.
    I know.. I get this serviced from HONDA SHOP.. There was a very loud noise that was irritating me .. The mechanic tightened them to some limit as he told me that the bike is under running period..

    I think iam going to get it tunned on 1000 KM now.. to hell with all the noises.. will bear them for 2 or 3 days..

    2 bad things happened today..

    1. I was on the URAK track in morning for a running procedure suddenly my accelerator wire got broken... I managed to somehow get to the mechanic and got it replaced

    2. After dawn i was on my way to squash court i was at about 60km/h suddenly Khar khar khar khar.. i immediately stopped the bike and i thought may be something is broken in engine.. i put the bike on double stand i inspected the engine.. then i came to realized that this noise was from chain cover.. i wasnt able to push the wheel as it was stucked and khar khar was very loud.. so i removed the chain cover panel and put it in my squash bag... well get it fixed in morning

    After getting hone.. iam came to know the chain is also very tight..

    No need to change oil right now if you changed it at 300km and next 2nd oil should be around 700 - 800km i think so as @asjdsm said

    1 more thing that i like to mention.. today after completing 500km... i again pushed my bike to limits.. I opened the full throttle..

    1st gear =20
    2nd gear= 50
    3rd gear= 80
    After switching to 4th gear the needle of speedometre falls back to 70 and then it climbed to 100km/h and as soon as i switched to 5th gear i came to know that the 5th gear has no power instead of climbing the needle came back to 95km/h and it stayed there

    Am i doing something wrong?? Need some advices .. And can a HONDA mechanic tune ravi engine??

    Hey bro you are not required to open full throttle as it puts extra load on your engine and chery1 also said you to avoid full throttling during your bike's break in

    i pushed my piaggio to it's limit just after 300k. i bring my bike after one month to the ravi service center for first tune up but the mechanic told me that before 1000km tuning is not recommended come when the meter reach 1000km . apart from fuel needle nothing is wrong with my bike .. just adjusted the rear break by the ravi mechanic and that's all . i think this bike is a beast in it's self. only bolts and fixing is poor by the compnay but stuff they used is far more reliable and tough then honda. i don't know how your race cable got torn .. i also have nothing wrong with the chain cover and chain .. bike is so smooth the only thing which annoys is vibration sound come from the hood as something is lose and vibrating with noise when ever i pushed hard , @silver_knife i think the same noise is coming from your bike .

    yes he can if he is honest AND the tuning wil be ok whe he uses the tolerances specified in the manual such as valve clearance,clutch etc,, as these will be differentr for ravi so is the issue with the carbi,,
    i would recommend an oil change when ur odometer reaches 800 ,, but never let it past 1000,, so if u r done 500 km do 300 km more and chane oil and check clearance ,, only if they r not ok u should repair them,, take the small book let page copy fromm manual to the mechanic and ask him to follow these,,

    Very disappointing indeed. The chain cover noise problem is still there then! I thought they had taken care of that.

    Okay brother!
    I know its very tempting.....! Understood!! BUT....
    Please have some sabar. Once you have reached 800kms, then try doing this...
    shift from 1st to 2nd gear @ 20kmph
    shift from 2nd to 3rd gear @ 40
    shift from 3rd to 4th gear @ 65
    shift from 4th to 5th gear @ 90

    then see where the 5th gear takes you. Be careful to very gradually increase the throttle in the top gear. Im hoping you should be able to go above 110 or close to it. Also please be very very careful to test this on a safe road. On a track if possible.

    Until 800km...be patient.
    Love thy Parents.

    And also......Its a good idea to change the oil at every 800kms. This bike needs more care than a honda does.

    Tabi_hawk yes i have piaggio in black it looks great.

    Silver_knife . man who told you to open the head for this sound , you know that the mechanic open your tappet for making money . no one who knows work can open the head that early and i don't think that much sound can be produce from tappet . only intelegent mechinic can figure out this lose thing. let me check it after the first tune up from ravi service center in islamabad.. the workshop is also dealer of honda and ravi both.
