Chinmay Dangre June 22, 2009 at 11:01 am

Dear Sunil,
Gearless scooter means CVT, a continuously variable transmission. In which gears are based on belt. For this you don’t need physical gear shifter and so the clutch. The vehicle gets controlled by the throttle and so by the both brakes.
Besides I would like to know which CVT scooter you have.
But for your knowledge let me share some tips with you.
CVT vehicles require less maintenance. But they are very hard for workmanship due to its body shell. In the bikes you can access any part from any side.
In maintenance you need to check your battery pack at least twice in a month for levels. Because rider mostly depends on STARTER. The most important is you should use kick often otherwise sometimes it becomes jam due to lack of use and then at the time of emergency you can’t start the vehicle. Over speeding is very much bad for CVT vehicles because they are belt driven. If you use it rough way then the life of belt and CVT pulleys will become less and so other related spares too.

In the bike you have 2 direct brakes and one indirect brake (ENGINE CONTROL BY GEARS) for stopping the vehicle but in scooter which are CVT has got two physical brakes. So always keep you brakes in condition. In those scooters loss of transmission is higher than any geared vehicle.
So I don’t think the average will be always constant and high.

One more thing, don’t forget that all the CVT vehicles has got two oil passages so always change both of them….One is for engine and another is for secondary transmission box.

Dear Ravi,
All things are depending on you budget. Also try to take test ride of SUZUKI GS150 though H.Honda is proven, but right now I feel the quality must be good from Suzuki in front of Bajaj or H.Honda..Talking about average, so right now mostly all the bikes are in the range of 50 to 60 in 100cc to 200cc categories. But generally average is depending on many factors such as riding style, usage pattern, single hand or multi hand, fuel type and filling stations, maintenance schedule, road conditions, tire condition and pressure. So try Suzuki and share your experience here

Dear Vikas,
Both are equivalent but I guess CBZ would be bit powerful than FZ

Dear Anshul,
R15 is one of the best but bad for Indian roads and city riding. ECU vehicles always hard to repair on roads because some problems can be detected only by FIDT(Fuel Injection Diagnostic Tool) if they are related to sensors.
And you might feel backache problem due its handle position which is very much different than any other bike. You need to have habit of that.
Thank god they have not launched YAMAHA R125R yet in India.
Anyways…..
Karizma is a good vehicle, No ECU so no maintenance problem, even on roads anyone can repair it.
Pulsar 220 is ok but if you want to remap the ECU for power purpose then hard to find so same like R15. But soon or later you will be able to remap R15 ECU for high performance.
TB from Royal Enfield, ummmm well bike is macho no wonder but it is still depending on battery. And still some quality and technology issues. But yes power and handling is good. And you can go to any terrain, other bikes can’t withstand some times. Rear brakes are always bad. And maintenance is bit higher side. If you are going to ride on highways all the time then you need the vehicle which is suitable for all riding conditions like stability and sturdiness..

So I hope I have shared good info with you guys….

Dear Anshul,
TB is good in some points but not all.
1. Still maintenance prone motorcycle.
2. Still depending on BATTERY.
3. Rough mechanics, so bad servicing treatment.
4. Battery is still not available in the market from EXIDE.
5. Handling is good.
6. The thump, you might have some problem with it.
7. Some of the spares are very much costly. (e.g. Foot rest)
8. Some of the spares you can get from BAJAJ showroom (e.g. Foot Rest).
9. Some of the spares are not available from company.
10. Sometimes for one small spare you might have to buy full assembly which can rip your pocket. (For e.g. Front Disc Brake LEVER)
11. Power is great.
12. Old problem sorted out new problems started.
13. You will have to train your self for repairing purpose.
14. All the time you will have to keep spare in stock and always with you.
For example: – Spark Plugs, Clutch Cables, Accelerator Cable.
15. When bike gets puncture our local puncture fellow doesn’t understand how to remove and refit the tire.
16. You need standby vehicle when you have RE product.

Powerfull machine in its class. But if you wait for some more time then the company might introduce EFI which may be good. Soon or later all the manufacture will start ECU models. But ECU models are bit complicated till it become mature enough in the market once everyone understand then it is maintenance free, otherwise all mess. Because to understand the ECU person should be educated.

I am sorry, I can’t judge about your vehicle for sell.

Bajaj Pulsar 180, TVS Apache 160, Yamaha FZ 150. Please suggest me which among these bikes are good in performance and less maintenance. Or please suggest me any other good vehicle in this segment.

Thanx a lot Chinmay.But m going in only for one bike.so shall i pic Thunderbird only or should i wait for some new bikes in market?do u think thr r sm new launches awaited?not the light engines..jst above 200cc

Reply

Chinmay Dangre June 26, 2009 at 6:46 pm

I know you are going for only one vehicle but when you buy ThunderBird you might have to buy another one which will be your stand by vehicle. And I don’t think so it’s a good affair. Well as your demands for above 200cc then you know the market very well. No one has good machine yet. But if we talk about 150cc then I tested GS150 from SUZUKI. Bike has got Butter gear shifting. looks are normal nothing so great and nothing great techy thing. But it’s not in 200c segment so it may be out of question for you. Today I heard KAWA250R might luanch soon, may be this coming month or so but still dark clouds. So I think you can wait more till you get better moto in your desire segment… So Wait & Just Watch..

Sorry I left out one issue.

Last weekend the motorcycle suddenly died itself after moving about 100mtrs. The kicker didn’t had the catch and the starter was dead. It was the first ride after a weeks idle. Later on pressing the starter switch a fast tick-tick-tick sound came from down. since it was nearby I pushed back home, cleaned plug battery contact and now the kicker got the hold. I fear the problem would be something else.. the battery starter motor etc???

You have not given details of your bike so,I assume your bike is new & you have ran it on about 100 kmph speed. If you have ran it on 100 & your bike has not done 25000 kms, your bike has lost one of your piston. Go to service center and request them to repair it under warranty, if they agree, very good otherwise the cost of repairing will be around 2000 rs.

Dear All,

I am planning for an ideal bike which would score good in all aspects regarding a bike,
1. good power, pickup
2. good efficiency
3. good looks
4. good top speed
5. value for money(my budget is max 65K rupees)
6. good handling in Bangalore traffic & highway riding.

This is going to be the first bike am going to buy. But i had been using my dad’s bike for the past 7yrs.

Now my choice is yamaha ss125 or SZ-R. Came to know that SS125 has higher bhp value than SZ-R. Wat is bhp ? How its related with power, pickup and other specifications of a bike ?
But am also afraid of the price hike of petrol. Many of my friends are opting for Discover 100cc only due to fuel efficiency. Also brainwashing my mind to opt for discover. How about discover150 ? Can you please give me the mileage figures of all the above mentioned bikes.

I know i have not specific in my choice. I request you to explain me pros & cons of all these bikes so that i will decide. My decision is surely dependent on your explanation.

regards,
K.Thirumal Alagan

For for Yamaha SS125..

Much better deal than Honda Shine interms of performance, SS125 is a much balanced and better than Shine.

The only down side of SS125 is the price of spare compare to Shine but Gladi (SS125) spares lasts a lot really long..

Its up the bike designer to use according the power band and targeted seed to optimize acceleration along with top speed or cruise speed.

Hello Rakesh..

For your need, why not the Yamaha SS125 Gladi ?? Really a good performer for the needs you have specified !!

Between your choices, I would pick the new Hunk with rear disc, but then again Rs. 73k here in Kolkata compare to a 15k cheaper model SS125 which would do the job for you well :)

Thanks..

A nice work by Deepak,the knowledge base of this site almost contains every necessary info but i still feel an article on bike’s security is necessary.I suggest this bcoz i lost my bike few weeks ago,stock side locks will not give enough protection hence an additional security system like anti-theft alarm or wheel lock is necessary.

I request Deepak to publish an article regarding bike’s security which would create awareness among new bikers.

Reply

Hunky April 14, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Hello,

Since the mileage dropped although you kept your riding style same, hence personally I would say

* Tire pressure
* Wheel play (make sure disc is not locking)
* Grease the wheel bearings for free wheel play
* Replace the spark plug
* Replace the air filter

Thnx..

Hi all
I am planning a long ride in my bike, what are the precautions should i take for the bike?

Reply

Hunky April 19, 2011 at 12:30 am

Before the ride, for few weeks, constantly monitor you engine oil level. If you notice drop in level, fix it asap. If you have to switch to Semi synth or oil brand (u should ride with semi sysnth oil like Motul 5100 / elf semi synth or such), make the switch at-least 15 days before the ride it self and in that 15 days, monitor your engine oil level..

At-least couple of weeks ago, get the bike serviced fully, notify service center about your ride and ask them to make sure the fitness of the bike. replace if anything recommended by service center.

Do not work in the bike from at-least 7 days before ride, make the bike to settle with the settings and ride with a settle bike. Its a really really bad idea to service or work in the bike just before the ride.

While in the ride, if its a long one, the most important factor about the machine is engine oil quality and level :).. Secondly when it comes to rider, most important factor is keeping cool, and controlling ur self about road rage. In the road, its a fact that indeed you are in two wheels and 4 wheel or a truck may kill you. so respect that statement and even if they do something unjustified, accept it and save your self, never get in to road rage.

Last of all, while in ride, stop and drink a lot of water in shorter interval. Carry a puncture kit (learn about tubless repair) if you have a tubeless tire. Wear a proper and comfortable helmet. Respect the traffic, keep an eye on the RVM, always.. Carry all vehicle paper and your driving license..

Initial requirement to travel within the city, or else may be some time to go somewhere outer area or long journey also,So I am looking for something where i should compromise about quality or performance.

I like to DIY maintenance on it, changed all oils, spark plug, air filter on it. Your site is very informative and easy to relate to.

Hello dear techies,

Thanks a lot for these informative articles. I own a Honda Unicorn as well as HH pleasure scooter for my wife.

For those who as trying to check how unicorn is, let me inform you there is at all no issue with the bike and if you could face any, it will be due to the local service shop. As service shops (honda dealers) have to do something to run their business they can put you some bill, but if you know how to avoid it, the bike is zero mentainance. It feels to live at least for 15 years. The Pleasure scooter is another example of relaxed driving, at least very female friendly. This cute, light weight, peppy scooter is very often handy when you cannot avoid congestion and when you are seating as pillion rider it is heaven. The only problem with pleasure is its suspension. They feel very jerky for single rider.

Can techies here / Admin / Deepak help me with a question? Is it possible to replace pleasure’s suspensions to smoother ones? I understand, Aviator and Access has got it better (I can’t recall that type but it’s like a bike). I am ready to shell out few thousands for that.

A lot of thanks in advance!

So there was a vibrate when the speed is crossing 56 – 57 kmph. Then again it is ok. But when I reach to 70 kmph its again vibrating continuously. Can’t ride more speed.

Here available bikes are only Honda CBE250R (which is out of my range), Unicorn and FZ16.
I prefer FZ16 and I think, the only difference between FZ16 and Fazer is the front aerodynamic shaped cowl, which is absent in FZ16 and of course the color.
So, I want to know that can I replace the Fz16 headlamp with the Fazer cowl and can keep it as same as original one ?

I am not a a bike techie but let me try to explain the problem – While driving when I try to bring down the bike to standstill in neutral or event in first or second gear with clutch applied I wind the rpm is soaring between 40-50 and it doesn’t come down even when the bike is standing and in neutral gear! What is this problem? Is it a big one? Is it easy to resolve?

Please guide me on this! Of course I would be going to service centre but not until Saturday. I thought it would be good to know what exactly the problem is before going to the service centre.
