I'm having a lot of problems with my Pulse Adrenaline 125, i am not sure where to go with this, so i would appreciate your opinions.
As you may know, the Pulse Adrenaline is chinese, and chinese products aren't known to be of great 'quality', which i did take into account before getting the bike. The bike is a year and 3 months old, i have had it for 2 months now.
There are many problems i keep having, some i have fixed, yet the problems are recurring. it has got to the point where i will have to replace the parts causing me problems, but being chinese made parts, i could be going in circles, the parts aren't that cheap to buy either.
Gear changer is very stiff, particularly when trying to get into neutral, also 2nd into 3rd is incredibly stiff.
Chain is worn out, normal.
Clutch screeches when pulling away and slipping the clutch in slow moving traffic. This is getting worse and worse all the time
Rear brake caliper pin is badly made and gets seized up causing it to get stuck causing the brake to bind, it has been cleaned out, and seems a lot better, but still gets stuck every now and then, i need a new back brake.
Needs new brake pads, normal.
Front brake/disc squeaks a lot, but works ok.
Throttle is becoming more and more jerky no matter how smooth you are with it, could need a new cable.
Being only a year old, i expect the problems will return after another year, then will need to be replaced again. I want to maintain it's value as much as possible.
My options are, get new parts, ride it till January to get more experience, then do my test, sell it and get a proper bike.
Or, get new parts and sell it for another 125, and continue to get my roadcraft on the new 125.
I have a deadline for doing my test, and that's January 19th 2013. So i have till then to get experience on the road.
What do you reckon guys?
Hope you can help me out here.
