i am using this bike. i bought it in march 2009. and i have been using it continuosly it. i would like to summarize my experience with it ..
initialy it was making to much girnding sound ... and it was very irritating. also its enging would get EXTREMELY hot .... and i had twice burnd my ankle with it (i also have video of that big balloon on my ankle due to dyl) .i then chkd my friends pakhero to find if that also heats to such an extent but that was not heating so much.. after first tuning the grinding sound was reduced to some extent but it is still there and after tuning it runs ok for a couple of weeks then it starts grinding sounds especially in 3rd gear.
after some time may be 8 months.. its CDI unit got F'd up. and i had to replace that .
about a month or so later the cap over the kick broke. and i have usd "batwa" to hold it in place. (initially i would start bike and then put the "kick's loha" jis pa panga martha hain start karna ka li in my pocket ..... and metal detectors of every sakurty guards would bepepepepepe_... me poor would be tempropraly declared kudKUSH Hamla awar.... LOL
its brake light fused. had to rplce it.
brake shoes were also replaced after some 5000 KM.
pick is excellant . road grip is not as god as pakhero [after "sarsari " using pake hereo for this comparison purpose ].
design is SE*ellant for me.. i love its design.
top speed is also se*ellant. i love it.
petro consumption , though i havnt chked it thoroughly but i cruze it at 80+ speed daily for ~40 KM. and almost 70 percent of the distance is covered at speeds exceeding 80 km/hr and at some long patches of road touching 90 km/hr. so my expenditure is 60 rs/ 40 km...which i think is fair for me....i havent noticed its avg on slow driving. my weithg is 75 kg and put the weight of luggage that i am carrying with me books copies boots leather jacket.... and judge the above consumption.
top speed can reach 95 if i use 2 litr hioctane and 5 litr shell super unleaded. .. this combo also give it very mast pick.[ i use this combo .. during exams becoz i have to save time ....]
patakha[ ? missing ? ] bahoth karhta ha ... even after tuning it .... and replacing new oil and filter. oh i forgot to mention ... i also replaced its spark plug after some 6km. misssing ka masla waqthi toor pa khatham ho gia tha.... as u know how much sakurty is thig nowadays and some time it just misses ... and puts the police and rangers nearby into alert.....
because of the unresolved grinding or "too much vibration type" of problem it has made me behave a bit hard with it .... it feels as if u are siting in a beautiful noise free environment and than the instant u sit on dyl u feel like in busy rawalpindi full of noise ,pollution...bahoth thang houn is problem sa .. riding other bikes is really a peace of mind.
above all , i never feel regretful for this deal. because. i am not comparing this thing with other biks but with the cycle or tonga which in bachpan i used to ride to reach school i jst praise allah for everything i get in my life......
long and short. i explaind my expierence . u may or maynot agree.
any questions welcomed.
