    I bought Top quality GTO brake pads for 380rs, went to mechanic but they were different so went to Ravi Piaggio Antena shop. Ravi Piaggio brake pads were for whooping 700rs. But as soon as mechanic opened the pads were fine and there was thick layer. So find out that werent placed correctly by last mechanic thats why they were vibrating. He fitted them again and they were fine

    Here are pix of an old brakepad lying there. Took pictures for reference. You can also do juggar and get custom leather on them which will cost less

    Hmm.. strange, I used old GTOs break pads in paiggio caliper fitted on a GS150 ... they all worked fine ... (may be there is a difference b/w calipers of GTOs too there are around five different GTOs ?

    Yesterday while I was riding my rp I felt some considerable power response from the bike .... after coming home I came to know that my brother had refuelled the bike with hi octane fuel.
    Now Im worried will it harm the engine in any way so that I tell him not to put hi octane in it next time though the bike is really showing difference in pick and top speed and im loving it :p

    one full tank needs only 1/3 of STP. sso you can treat 3 full tanks with one STP, its around 500RS a bottle there are other brands as well which offer same product but I havent tested them yet.

    It will keep the piston/valve clean more power more engine life and better economy.

    I used it quite for a long time when I was too much of a teeanage racer (may be it was a reason bike survived brutle use) but then after becoming a busy lad in making carrier I switched back to normal petrol..

    contact Paksitan Bikers Club, they are great help in this regard, and recently they pushed Ravi Guys to send parts to the users who are using there bikes to hell of a remote areas it will be a piece of cake for them to send parts to Pechwar.

    Bro, its just an octane booster. you can also get similar results by using high octane fuel in your bike. infact, from what I have read, Suzuki GS-150 is built with compression ratio of 9.2 to 9.5:1 which is in the vicinity of 90-96 RON. That means, you don't really need high octane fuel in it. you may get better pick, acceleration and fuel economy but the added cost of fuel will outweigh the benefits.

    just mix one liter of ethanol based petrol with a full tank of regular petrol and you'll get similar results, assuming that your bike's tank can hold 12 liters in total. you can get E-10 petrol from PSO station in Constitution Avenue Islamabad. Ethanol has a tendency to eat away fuel lines. if you are concerned about it, then just use two liters of high octane fuel with a full tank of regular petrol.

    Regards.
