    Bhai, you must turn on the Red button over self-start button first to even kick start your bike. Secondly if it can b started with Self button, what's the issue then?

    First of all many many congratulations ...
    Second i never kick started my bike, so u don't need that just turn the ignition button on and give it a self start and if does't start give it a half choke or full choke, but if u r still having issue just get it checked from ravi .....
    and do share some pics please

    many many congratulations..
    break in is the most important phase in the life of a bike
    speed less than 50,
    avoid pillion riding or excessive weight,
    do try burst of acceleration and than deceleration now and than but keeping speed below 50,
    change oil before 300kms and always use 10-40w for hot days,
    keep an eye on every bit of the bike piaggio comes with built in faults so as soon as u find one, mend it or get it claimed.
    and most important do share some pics.....

    when my bike was in breakin period i use to go in the next street on my bike and if i have to buy something 1km away from my home than i used to get it from some place 4, 5 km away from my home, and i also did a lot of awaragardi just to push my bike to its limits as soon as possible.
    waiting 4 pics

    oil is going gr8 no gears issue or heat up issue, tuning was done by rana autos the one i mentioned after getting the battery installed, do force him to adjust tappet at 0.8mm with feeler gauge, and he will open quite a lot of bits of ur bike and will oil them, grease them and things like that and he is not as good as mughal autos Lahore.

    I happened to visit a piaggio dealer in Lahore two weeks ago. Even the mechanic there recommended to use zic 5w-20:what: i am planning to visit Mughal Autos next weekend to tune up my bike properly!!

    5-20w is suitable for cold days may be that's y he recommended u but as the days are about to get hot so u should go for 10-40w and do share ur reviews after the tune up.
