Piaggio MP3 250 / 400 / 500
Here are some pictures of my baby.
And also the first day i got it and went home and parked it. My mothers horse got out and went to the bike and knocked it over. The only damage is the decal on the fairing is alittle messed up. Im trying to clean it up but its hard and i dont know if i should try to finsh or just leave it alone. (ive super glued it back to the fairing)
I also have a few other questions for you guys.
The fuel switch has 3 settings. Res ( I know whats its for), On, and Pri.
Well while driving yesterday the bike died on me and the switch was on ON but i couldnt get it to start back up untill i turned it to the PRI and it ran fine. The problem is i dont know what the PRI is or stands for. Can you guys help me out?
Also whats about a good RPM range to be at? I keep mine around 4 before i shift. Another thing, my helmet is tight in the head but not in the cheeks, is that ok? What do you guys do with your helmets when your done going to a place your going to? I.E where do you put your helmet when you go to the moives or other places like that? Anyone know where i can get a repair guide and a owners manual for a gs500f? Theres repair manuals but their all 2006 models and im not sure if theres anything different.
Please help me, i think i have other questions but i just cant think of any more right now.
After buying the bike i couldnt even afford a helmet but my mom bought me one and im trying to get my bro to buy me the jacket. And i always wear gloves when riding. Im going to get some pants also in the near future
Thanks for the sites.For a jacket i think im going to go with the one ben just reviewed. And i thought the wind would cool my skin off and blow away the uv rays?
YAY I GOT IT. Wow what a beautiful bike. Perfect condition. Rides so smooth, feels great and gets up and goes when i need it to. My back is alittle sore but i also went to work in my boots which hurt my legs and went up to my back. But i also know i am going to have to get use to it. I will admit i almost dumped it a few times. Thats only because i am not use to backing it up, but im getting better. About the death grip most people have, i dont really hold on that tight cause i know its bad if i do, but if im cold (like night riding) then the death grip comes in. Another bad thing is that if i want to take it home i have to drive 1 1/2 miles down a gravel road which is hell on the tires and isnt fun/safe. But im so happy with the bike, every family member that seen it today took the keys and took my bike for a test run (they all have rode before). Even though at first they all yelled at me and didnt want to support me, they turn around when the see the bike.
Another think i need to learn, which wont happen again. I need to wear long sleeve shirts. I rode for an hour and my arms are already sun burnt (im a redhead so its bad) i thought the wind would help me NOT get burned but i was wrong and it wont happen again.
Ill get some pics to you guys 2morrow. My mom took some today but there bad.
Im really wanting a Hyosung 250 but i dont want a bike that if it breaks down no one can fix it. I was also wanting to know. What types of scenarios occor when people drop their bikes? I will have to drive down 1.5 miles on gravel (im scared) and i know thats a big chance to drop or spin out on a soft spot but i would like to know what other things can cause you to drop your bike so i can avoid them. This will be the first time i will ever get a bike and i dont want a naked bike but i dont want to drop a bike that is beautiful with a fairing.
How fast can a 250 go? I seen the Hyosung go 170 red lining. Will i also be able to pop wheelies with little effort on a 250? The only 250 i will buy is the Hyosung 250 because it looks so cool.
But back to the topic, no one has really answered my question. LOL
