below is my review i had posted in best mechanic thread for tuning. (regards,)
dear fellows, today i went for my first tuning of Pridor at the shop told by Faizan bro.
I parked my bike outside his shop. He allotted me a token number and put the token on bike seat. When my turn came. The ustaad himself drove my bike in on the stand. We had a chit chat regarding problems and condition of bike. I asked him to set tappet and other adjustment for greater pick (i said i have no issue with fuel average). Then a worker came, he told the worker to do things in his language ; with worker there was a chotoo as well. They both started tuning... a little later ustaad himself done different adjustments with filler guage and other tools and worker/chotoo washed air filter chain/chain covers oiled various parts/nuts opened breaks and readjusted them.
I told him about sethi problem that my bike used to make. After the tuning, ustaad tood my bike for test drive himself.
He recommended Caltex Havoline 20-50 rather than Shell AX5 so i said ok. The quantity he filled was 0.70 Litre exact.
It was a nice experience. I am highly satisfied with this ustaad. Also, he is authorized Honda Service Centre/Parts and is mentioned in Owner's manual. He asked me to brought Warranty/service certificate for entry as that is necessary for warranty claims later.
He seems very busy ustaad did he give proper time to your bike? my first question
I am very glad to know you have found an good mechanic who has satisfied you with his work
and more better thing he is an authorize honda mechanic
nice to know this ustaad used feeler gauge for tappet adjustment
and look Nomee as just were having discuss on this thing what engine oil quantity for pridor
i guess this ustaad is already aware of this as he is using 0.7l in pridor engine
today i went for my first tuning whose review i have posted in Best Mechanic for every category thread. The noticeable point was that the service ustaad (a very able professional guy) put 0.70 Litre exact quantity of Caltex Havoline Engine oil 20-50 in the Pridor.
+ another new thing he told is that I have to put my bike 5-8 times this way between 1400km to 2000km:
First gear: till 30km/h
Second gear: Till 50 km/h
Third gear: till 80 km/h
fourth: at 80+
if i want my bike to achieve higher top speeds. He said between break-in period till 1k we should drive in economy zone and from 1k to 2K after every 100 km we should once put bike on max RMP in every gear as that is as important as the break in period economy zone drive.
I had told him to set tappet and other settings for maximum pick and speed (and not for fuel efficiency). Now ustaad told me to come for second tuning at 2000KM and in every 70KM i've to take bike to open road and do Max RMP in every gear. he said then i'll achieve 100km/h without head down.
After the tuning and his settings my bike pick is like rocket ... its pick is amazing now... i dont know what he did to bike(my review is in best mechanic thread for tuning) but its pick is really amazing. it goes like rocket in first gear to 25km/h.... till third gear its very very quick acceleration (just like normal 125) and in 4th gear its not that quick now... but i think i've to work as per his advice of once max RPM in every 70 KM and another tuning on 2K with oil change as well.
First i will again repeat its nice to know you are happy with his work
so must have done proper tuning of bike that why you liking its bike performance
i will advise you should visit him from now on
and yeah very noticeable thing we were just discussing about this pridor engine oil quantity
well its nice to see this ustaad was aware of pridor engine oil capacity mentioned in pridor manual
so he is following company guide lines
and yeah the trick which this ustaad told you some mechanic say this including
honda mechanic here in my city but he never recommends to drag bike that much as this
ustaad told you he just say drive it fast if you want bike to get higher speed toh bus esko bhagaaya karo
aur mein esko bhagaaya karta bhi tha aur ab toh 10k km hone walay hai
par mere pridor normal speed hi achieve kar rahe hai nothing special or extra ordinary
bro those are pretty long drag of gears
