bad bike bad service and 2,700 down the pan
Hi, I have a Megelli 125 naked that I bought second hand at 10 months old and 1200 on the clock. I have to say, it has been pretty good. I use it regularly and it has never caused me a problem. Ok, it's not the quickest bike at this level but it has seen me through my first 7 months of riding on the road in London.
Sorry to hear that you guys have had problems with them, can't say the same.
Sorry to Say this but my brother has a 125r and the dealer stopped selling them two minutes after my bro purchased his.
Its been a nighmare to start and after some time would cut out and not start again. After much testing and my mate who is a magic mechanic taking a twenty second look at it and two sec test the bike had vibrated so much the gasket between carb & engine had disintergrated. this meant air was being drawn in, also Megelli didnt put one on the other side which is present in their exploded diagram.
Now all that work has been done, the carb stripped and cleaned replaced guess what????............. won't idle, dies repeatedly and with a world of tweaking still will not run, so I tested every part of the ignition, cleaned the air filter and tried again.... still nothing changed.
Was thinking about re-jetting to try and get something out of it but I'm at the end of my teather. I feel so bad for bringing my big brother into motorbiking on such a piece of Sh*t.
Megelli have yet to respond to my begging requests for technical information or string of complaints. I am going to try this before turning up at Megelli to see what they say!!!!!!
you do know theyre chinese bikes with an italian sounding name imported by a uk chinese/cover company dont you? if not i most definetly advise you to research a manufacturer before buying their products, and if you did know they were chinese then what else did you expect to happen?
my son has just brought a megelli 125, all i need to know is does any1 no were i can buy a cylinder head for it???
ive just bought 1 there and all seems fine
