    Post My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125 - 2012

    Assalamualaikum To All,

    Although i had posted a few pics already of my bike, i am starting this thread a bit late after buying ravi piaggio storm 125 just to share the experience.

    Previously i owned a Honda Cd 100, Bought Cd 100 in 2006 and kept it for 6 years till 2012, It was an excellent bike and never gave me any kind of trouble for the whole 6 years really went well and even now was in very good genuine condition.

    Then after reading many reviews of different bikes on P.W. and looking at different bikes available in the market i went for Ravi Piaggio 125 and bought the bike on Nov 1st 2012. Then sold my Cd 100 to a friend the next week after i bought Piaggio 125.

    Here are pics of my bike


    My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125  2012 -1206119

    My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125  2012 -1206120

    Some Initial Problems which i had to face.

    1. There where noises from the front wheel bearing at just 200 K.M.
    2. When the bike was just driven 300 K.M. the speedometer cable broke
    3. The tappets adjustment was not good and there was engine noise
    4. Spark Plug quality was not good
    5. Noise was coming from the speedometer

    Solutions To the above mentioned Problems.

    1. The front wheel bearings was easily changed by piaggio warranty center under warranty and they are working excellent now
    2. Speedometer cable was also changed under warranty from warranty center and is operating fine now
    3. Tappets they said would be adjusted at 1000 K.M. first service and not to be adjusted before that.
    4. Spark plug would also be changed at 1000 K.M.
    5. The speedometer was touching key hole so they adjusted the speedometer and moved it a bit away from the key hole the noise went away

    Overall Experience

    The overall experience of the bike went really well if i had any issue the problem was resolved by the warranty center and any faulty part was easily claimed. Its an excellent bike specially if we see the styling and comfort and there is no bike like Piaggio 125 currently in the Pakistani market and i really enjoy the ride of the bike.

    Thanks for the prompt reply,i need many parts like inner clips of side covers are broken so need both side covers,front mudguard supports are cracked so need it,rear mudguard is also broken from tail so need it,if its original fog lamps available i will pick up in no time,i need its meter cluster,speedometer cable is a bit longer than delux and secondly its seat which we push in the front hub is a bit different than other bikes so need it,its original chain and gear needed as well,its kick is also needed.
    All these parts are going to end their life so want to replace them before they really go off.
    I am gujrat based,visit lahore and rwp once or twice in every month but going bilal ganj is really a headache for me,traffic on these routs is insane .i am going to pm you my number,if ever you find any accessory related this bike please sms me the shop name and contact number.
    Thank you.

    I got you digits in PM, nop worries where ever I found some thing relted to it I will give you a call.. but skill bhai, best bet would be when ever you now visit lahore com on saturday, as I am free that day and you can drop on shadara Mor instead of going al the way to lari ada, I will pick you from there and take you to Bilal Ganj without touching that messy trafic, (blieve me I am alhore and know every single gali ) and we can do the hunting together ... I am sure you will find half of the stuff in an hour or so... like fog lamps, tappas, rear mudgaurd.. not sure if cable is found in used, but it can be found in brand new from mcloed road.. chain cover and geaar shifter will have to be searched a little but i am sure mil jien *** as I see lots of dead chiniese bikes in bilal ganj base ment.. I mostly lose interest in hunting when go to bilal ganj alone isliye keh rha hon

    I was not able to test it to the max yet was very busy lately, and i m still searching for the appropriate size of irridium plug, have searched a lot haven't found it yet and lastly the mixture setting also needs to be adjusted with the new ignition coil after that i would be able to provide accurate response of the bike

    Lets hear from SK and Omer about wet condition/cornering performance of these tyres.

    Service tyre was really really bad in terms of grip.., I found this new tyre to be very grippy and sticked to road.. While offroading it has good grip..Iam having good experience with this tyre so far.. The previous tyre wasnt that much grippy..

    Basically the rubber quality is of good quality .. Thread pattern do play its parts but its the rubber that wins the show

    Initial testings acceleration has increased specially in the first three gears but in the fourth and fifth gear not much yet, the bike was knocking in the first gear prior to the coil change now its not knocking in the first gear, but still much has to be done because the mixture setting is not synced with this coil i havent got the mixture adjusted yet and secondly haven't put an irridium plug yet then will know the actual difference. Any idea of any good mechanic in Pindi / Isb who can do good mixture setting with changed coil and who knows these types of mods specially for piaggio?

    Bought it from an electrition in G-10 I&T center as i live near by, it is easily available in shah sultan pindi used parts from any electrition, its a cultus ignition coil, it fits in all cars non efi, cultus, mehran, santro, alto etc.
