Any else noticed A MAJOR FLAW in the pictures posted above? Discs are NOT balancing the wheels. Both brakes are installed on the RIGHT side of tires.
If you have observed the stock (drum brakes) of Classic, or ANY bike in the world having ONE disc at the front, or even the Deluxe/Piaggio etc ... you will notice that they BALANCE BOTH WHEELS by:
- Installing front brake to LEFT SIDE
- Installing rear brake to RIGHT SIDE
... unless the front wheel has TWO DISC PADS on each side.
@r1, Its going OKAY. Nothing 'very good' really. As a commuter, its doing its job. But that 'chaska' of CG125 is long gone. It started ever since i started to Engine problems.
Right now, some issues which really torture me are as follows. Bike is running just fine though, and is still reliable enough to complete each journey just fine.
Front suspension issues ... Still there. I have personally Taken out the forks and Filled them out with different oils ranging from 20W-50 Havoline, and a Power Streering fluid, as mentioned by another member ... which i also posted HERE ... along with detailed experience)
Alignment issues of frame ... which as per mechanics and other people is my Weham, and thats its fine. I think they say this primarily because they can't fix it 100%. For this reason, i can't ride the bike at high speeds, without getting very uncomfortable.
Weak Stroke of Engine ... i just FEEL that the engine stroke is weak. Bike runs fine, reaches top speed just fine ... but acceleration seems bogged down. When two people sit on the bike, it just won't feel as powerful as it should. I felt this when i rode a Euro 2 with THREE people sitting on the seat, and bike's response was just Jaw Dropping. This feeling gets boosted whenever i see those 90s and 2002 model CG125 bikes totally renovated, with a Heartwarming Stroke.
Anyway, i have stopped worrying about it. As a commuter, its doing its job so i am just riding along with it, if you know what i mean
