    Default A New Ravi 70 2016

    About couple of months ago, I started a thread asking for opinions of respected PakWheelers for non-honda 70cc bikes as I needed a small bike. Even though I had the budget for 75K for this purchase but I was curious to find out how our Pakitsani manufacturers are doing and what they are producing.

    Here is my referenced thread:
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/gen...ikes-super-bad

    However, due to awfully busy schedule, I couldn't get the time for it but today, I finally did it.
    I purchased the bike on cash and today's price was 43K.

    First Impressions:
    I drove the bike for like 5 km or so from showroom to friend's home where I parked my bike and went home on car. I'll get my bike tomorrow .

    So, the bike is silent, smooth, no vibrations so far as I drove up to like 50 km/h speed.

    Observations:
    People who live in Rawalpindi might thought that why I didn't go to a big name like "Motorcycle Plaza" guys for this purchase and the reason is that I wanted to see all the bikes by myself and wanted to inspect them before actually making a purchase so I reviewed Super Star, Union Star, Zimco, Ravi, Honda, United & Unique. The dealer had all the bikes. My experience with this dealer was good as he answered all of my questions with smile.

    I personally find Ravi's quality a bit better in terms of handlebar controls, tail light, battery compartment, shine, overall quality, etc. The worse quality I found in Union star and Zimco. When I slide my finger over Zimco's tapa's sticker, it started coming off. WoW.

    Anyways, I then opted out for the Ravi Humsafar Plus with 78cc engine.

    I purchased this bike in evening so pics' quality is bit low but I'll be sharing better quality (day time) pics on weekend, perhaps, Sunday.

    So far, I think, it's a good purchase if I keep in view my expectations which I mentioned in detail in aforementioned referenced thread.

    Now, I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU TO @salmanrasheedpsh for creating following thread that I was silently following:

    Are you sure your bike is running fine with 0.7 liters of oil? I mean, Ravi's owner manual says that bike needs 0.8 liters of oil but you're pouring 0.7 liters of oil.
    In my first oil change, I poured 0.8 liters of oil. If 0.7 liters of oil is sufficient then I can buy 0.7 liters from now on.
    Can you please confirm?

    I was busy in Eid Holidays so couldn't respond earlier.
    Well, the first tuning and the whole experience of it including post-tuning was pretty interesting in both positive and negative sense.

    First tuning was done when the odo-meter was 997. First of all, all the ravi service centers denied offering free tuning, I was like what the ... anyways, it didn't bothered me much so went for a tuning.

    After the turning, the vibrations of bike reduce significantly - especially between the speed of 55 to 70. as below 55 and after 70, vibrations were otherwise minor - but vibrations are there.

    After the first tuning, one more thing started to happen. Once I reach to the speed of 70 or 80 and if I leave the throttle, after a few seconds while speed is decreasing, the bike create a noise like it has missed a stroke. Sound like tuss... It happens 7 out of 10 times. I believe, I need to change the plug as it seems like the issue.

    Afterward, I pushed the bike on an empty road (on 9th Avenue in late evening last sunday) and bike reached to the speed of 85 easily but then it struggled to reach the speed of 90 and after about 2 minutes on full throttle, it managed to reach the speed of 95 while sitting normally like heads-up. I'm not into junk like stunts anyways. All mentioned speed were of speed-o-meter which I am not sure is accurate. Then I reduced the speed as I was getting the impression that bike will explode.

    So, this was an interesting experience.

    Apart from that, this time I poured zic 10w40 oil - 0.7 liters as almost everyone told me that book has mis-printing (where it says we need to pour 0.8 liters) and I'm having no issues with 0.7 liters of oil.

    So far, fully satisfied with this bike.

    I usually top-up the tank everytime I go to petrol pump so first fill, i got the average of 56.5 km/l.
    On second top-up, i got the average of 49 (as I was revving bike hard as 1000 km was about to complete)
    and 3rd is not yet ended. current odo meter is little over 1400 km.

    And no, bike is in 100% stock condition. I might tinker with the bike but so far, it's going good.
    Have you tinker with the bike like changing the fuel mixture settings. How was the results?

    I never done that before. However, I'm thinking to get into it. Can you please share the thread so I can try a few things in order to make the bike more efficient.

    By the way, I just refilled and this time, I got the average of 39 km/l. It might be because that my average speed was 70.

    I've got no idea but I've plans to go to Pindi tomorrow (Sunday) in late afternoon so I can try a few mechanics. I'll update here with my findings and hope that'll help you too.

    Fingers Crossed.

    Thanks :-)
    Please check the post # 8 or click on the following link to find complete details of dealer like address, phone number, etc.
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/oth...-a#post5106286

    Yes, I'm fully satisfied with this dealer as he has as many as 7 bikes from different manufacturers and it really helps compare the bikes under a single roof. It looks like a small shop (right in front of the motorcycle plaza on the circular road, Rawalpindi) but once you enter into the shop, it seems big enough.

    Hope it helps.

    The bad fuel average is normal bro at this stage as fuel air mix ratio is at higher side from the company as it's a new bike , adjusting that will correct Ur consumption

    Its not recommaded to lean out fuel mixture of a engine which is in break in period
    About method its very simple first ensure air filter is stock and good valve clearance is right then start your bike at ride it for good 1km atleast and than remove spark plug if its black lean out fuel mixture a bit if its rust enrich fuel a bit until you get redish spark plug

    I did but it was worst experience ... A friend of mine suggested a mechanic near circular road - he tuned the bike and then and then I got the average of 17 km/liter.

    I then visited another mechanic on the saddar - near Suzuki showroom in the backside street. He tuned the bike and it's now back to 40 km/liter.

    So far, my bike ran 1650+

    This is how I was checking the milage.
    Before visiting the mechanic, I topped-up the petrol. Visited mechanic, ride the motorcycle for 30 km and fill the bike again. I did this a couple of times.

    Well at this point, the petrol average isn't my primary concern but somehow it doesn't feel right that a 70cc bike consuming more petrol than a 150cc bike. It's funny.

    I've visited another honda mechanic today afternoon at G-10, Islamabad. Guess what, he didn't knew how to tune a bike so my bike now running like it is over a bit.

    I've kept Old Yamaha 2004, Suzuki GS150 2013, YBR 2016 and I was under the impression that only Honda's mechanics know the work for their bikes. Sadly, I can say that even Honda mechanics don't know how to tune a bike. When Ravi was not touched by the mechanics, it was running great. But now, things aren't looking good.

    I'm spending the same amount of time for finding talented mechanic for my 70 bike that I spent to find talented machenic for GS150 & YBR and I found them both. I guess, fake ustad je are everywhere and they don't know anything about tuning the bikes.

    I'll keep on looking for a good mechanic and good tuning, I don't think I'll ever visit any mechanic ever again.

    Try sheikh ravi center which is located on kohati bazaar.
