    Default Disappointed owner of Suzuki GS-150 :(

    I had been using Honda CG 125 from 1999 to April 2014, in this time period i bought almost 5 to 6 CG's. I was never disappointed by Honda in this particular time period. But i got bored with 125 so i wanted change and something new and also wanted bike with easy availability of parts and after sales services. i had read so many good reviews about GS 150 on the internet including Pakwheels. My kid bro who is in Karachi also bought 150 and recommended me to go for it with eye closed.

    So the main story starts from here, i bought 150 on 25th May from Murree Road. Rode carefully during initial 1000 KMs running period. When my bikes's Odo was around 1200 kma. Its current went off and bike also went off after jerks. no electric component was working. i loaded it on my Suzuki Pickup and took it to the only company operated workshop near Marir Hassan. Staff there warmly welcome me ask me about the problem. They smiled and said sir this is very common fault coming these days in 150's. they said battery's rectifier grip is lose. they just pushed it and bike started and was working absolutely fine. I got oil changed and first service and came home happily.

    Last friday i was going to faizabad from Rawat, my bikes ODO was around 2000 KM,s. When i reached koral chowwk two guyz with 125's challenged me, i accepted the challenge and my bike did well beaten them with big difference till khanna pull. At khanna pull traffic light one guy with 150 popped in and gave me signal for race, i also accepted the challenge and pushed my bike to full throttle and my bike was giving 110 KM/h. after going 5 to six KMs with same speed a loud sound of chusss came from bikes engine and bikes lost the motion and tick tick sound started coming from the head of the enging. I lowered the speed. second day i went to the other small workshop of Suzuki company near dhoke khabba road committee chowk (as people told me who were at marir hassan outlet that this workshop is about to close in few days and have to visit Baber autos near committee chowk). Person who was inchange at baber autos thoroughly cheaked my bike and said Piston Rings and Head of ur bike are blown (farig). I was like WTF :O. He said u dont have to worry as ur bike is under warranty and these thing will be replaced free of cost. u just have to bring warranty card.

    Now i have submitted warranty card to them and waiting for approval. I am not a rough rider or habitual racer. as it was friday 4 pm there were very less traffic on the road so wanted to have little fun and ended up with this tragedy I am very disappointed with this incident. Hoping for the best but inside thought "new bike ka enging khul gya is killing me".

    I ll update you guys with future. Plz pray for my loss

    Why depreciation factor is not applicable to Pakistani corolla ????

    so you are saying gs150 is faster than cg125?well this depends upon on how one rides.maybe you were a better rider and knew exactly when to change gear.but even if it is faster,gs 150 has a higher displacement so it should win and i think it doesnt sound good and in stock form its too ugly moreover the resale is not good and spare parts ore only available at proper showrooms.Other than that i like gs150.Just if they make it look slighlt better,i would buy one despite of other problems.

    i have abused Junoon, Deluxe and GS on full throttle for hundreds of Kilometers in one stretch. No complain to any of them, all very tough engines.

    Join the club, my new suzuki has bad wiring as well. But your issue strikes me as a very peculiar one! Allah karay apki bike set ho jaye its not a sign of quality when ring piston need to be changed at 2000km.

    @asimgujjar Well, if that's the case, then tomorrow is a Friday (well, technically today as its quarter past 12 now), weather looks clean with a bright sunny day and I am taking the brand new GS 150 (which is hopefully arriving tomorrow), to it's max speed of 120 - 125 km/h for half an hour (I know people, not a wise thing to do but a man's gotta do what's a man gotta do).

    Let's see if things blow up on Friday-is-an-unlucky-day!

    Will keep you guys posted

    well don't use it.
    Shift to thicker grade 20w-40/20w-50, whatever brand you like.

    how much km was done since last engine oil change when the incident took place?

    gs150 is 70-80% made in Pakistan on Local parts... due to same reason, jecks and wires r not upto mark.... even the grease is third class... i had to remove it clean it... and then again used imported grease to get everypart greased up.... had to clean brakes, brake drums, had to tightened the t rod by my own.... tightened the chain by my own.... had to check all the clamps and jecks so that no more loosening wud b faced .... and this is due to poor workmen ship and poor quality standards set by NAPAK Suzuki company

    oh that is terrible just recently a GD110 pw owner his bikes engine suddenly stopped working
    and he was also using suzuki sgo oil in his bike though he was not driving bike at higher speed
    suddenly his bikes engine stalled the work of his bike was done in warranty no parts were replaced
    as told by him mechanic just cleaned the head of engine & bike was ready to run again

    Don't known how much serious damage engine has faced in your case i would request you to kindly
    update us when you get your bikes work done if rings & piston got damaged only with few races
    that is quite alarming situation as we already very well know about GS quality its worst quality
    build bike in pakistan only thing that was best in this bike was the engine owners really admire its engine
    and no doubt its very good engine just hope that your case is one unique case if some other owners
    also starts face such issue than i think every one should say bye bye to suzuki & stops purchasing their bikes
    so that they pack up their motorcycle assembling factory
