Hi,

 

Urgent!! Just wondering where can I get my X8 serviced? :confused:

 

I need a good workshop in fact. Problems have been coming on and off my X8 and its only

 

Encountered problems like the vibration (when starting to trottle) and now the worst thing has come to me. The trottle could not be used properly. It will not automatically go back after releasing my hand from it.

 

Please advise if anyone has face such a problem with your X8.

 

Kind of disappointed. :cry:

I think its not a good idea to let go the trottle and let it roll back by itself too often ba especially when travel at high speed...

 

any one can advise too ?

 

btw if ur bike still under warrenty u can bring back to piaggio service center.. let them have a check on ur bike...

The guy told me its properly the rain, which manage to seep thr. the cover. (raining like crazy recently)

 

He sprayed some oil into the right side handle and solved the problem easily for free. :cheer:

Sudden release of throttle will results in sudden engine brake..... thus making your engine to work extra hard......

 

not good for the engine.... :giddy:

 

should try to throttle down bit by bit with tapping of brakes till the bike slow down significantly then release the throttle and brake slightly harder....

Hi All, just want to update the situation of my X8 after it was sent for repairs and it's 3K servicing. It appears that water has seeped into my engine oil compartment and probably due to a bad gasket. I should have realized that my engine oil looked funny when I open up the dip stick. The oil looks creamy like thick white honey when my scooter has all the previous problems described in my previous posts.

 

I was using Caltex Platinum petrol all the way and now I decided to switch to Caltex Gold and I don't find much difference. Been riding my scooter for the past 2 weeks and all the previous problems have disappeared. My scooter now felt "seasoned" and handles great. I hope it will remain like that for the next couple of years before I upgrade to a car. :smile:
