silver_knife dear i too have a ravi piaggio bought a couple of weeks before . the leakage of tank spouse be checked by the dealer who sold you the bike . from the first day my bikes fuel needle in not working , once when i filled the tank to the top she danced but ain't worked.
first day i got loosed my starting kick bolt , so i tighten it by my self at home. and the noise you heared from the hood LOL yarr first i thought before buying this thing that it have something that have any relation with piaggio but sorry to say that , piaggio officials will die after watching there name on a total Pakistani bike. these engines are raced up they don't have the rythem and sound that honda or yamaha have ,only the original compny name not (dyl or ravi ). the basic reason is for quality you have to pay , i bought it because this bike have more functions then honda is giving in the budget , but for this we have to compromise on the quality what ever ravi built. i don't want to disappoint you for this bike because i too have it , and it does the job well. Congratulation for your new purchase .
