Your nearest Keeway dealer should be able to help you
E-bay is another sourse.

“Great Little Bike”

Written on: 30/05/2013 by Irishbiker (1 review written)

I bought my bike new 2 months ago as I wanted something nice and light to tour around the local hills, valleys and coastline.I had been looking at Keeways for 4 or 5 years and was impressed with the finish on the bike and at €1,799 euro in Ireland I thought it was excellent value for money. Anyway when I got the bike first I found the engine and gearbox very tight but I was patient with it and kept my top speed to 80kph and the revs at max 7,000 for the first 1,000 km. I changed the engine… Read Full Review

Bought one myself recently, after an initial problem wit the bike idling it is now running great. Breaking the engine in still as I have not done as many miles recently as I would have liked but soon I hope to be touring the wicklow mountains on it! It's a super beginners bike for anyone.

Good for you. Enjoy the bike and take it easy breaking it in. I am living in Co.Waterford and was up the Wicklow mountains in mine as well in September. Where did you buy yours?

bought it in Bikeworld in dublin. I'll hopefully have the bike broken in by the end of next week so it will be having its service then. being as it needs the extra few revs for hills I havent brought it any any demanding journeys up the mountains just yet. how do you find it on longish journeys?

I have done many long journeys on mine. I have done 300-450km 1 day trips all over the country. The bike is comfortable and when its run in you should be able to drive along at 90kph no problem. As it is only a 125 try not to rev the guts out of it and it should last forever. Big thing with these is to keep it as clean as possible. Buy yourself a tin of ACF50 and spray it onto a cloth and wipe down all the chrome parts and frame with it. Keep the tank and side panels polished and if you have a place to keep it in from the weather rust should not bother you. If you are keeping it outside buy a cover for it. The one thing I replaced on mine after 2000km was the chain as I was having to adjust it too often. I bought a good quality Japanese chain for €45 and since I put it on did not have to touch it in 3000km. I have lots of info on these so give me a shout on this if you need any help or advice.

Written on: 28/08/2010

Bought mine a couple of weeks ago and just had the first 500km service today. Only problem I've had is with the battery. This stopped the electric start from working so I had to use the kick start. The battery was replaced under warranty. Interestingly, it was the only Japanese part on the bike.

Only niggling points are you need to lift the foot rest up to use the kick start. Not very convenient if you stall at a roundabout. However, the electric start avoids this problem. The side stand is… Read Full Review

Bought one for commuting really, saving over £100 per month on fuel. With the added bonus that I love it! Rain, Snow (which can be scary) sunshine... fab!

Use it every day, 4000km in 5 1/2 months. Has started first time every time even when we had the recent very cold spell, down to minus 9 !!!!

Have put a windshield on and a Keeway coloour coded top-box... looks great.

I'm just over 6ft tall and 15 stone and it does move quite nicely, although can't get more than 62 ish! but that'sfine for… Read Full Review

Really interesting, I'm much at the same place of you, having used small bikes many years ago and thought I'd like to ride again. I note your review is from Feb 2010, so a quick question please, as we are over 18 months later now, do you still hold your high opinion of the Keyway Superlight please and/or what issues have you encountered if any?

Regards



David

Written on: 06/09/2009

I rode a suzuki125 for 5 years and I find the Keeway125 to be an excellent equivalent.

The Suzy125 was about 25KGs lighter in weight and this made it a bit easier to handle than the Keeway125 but this detail is far outweighed by the reliability and price of the Keeway.
Also the Suzy125 was bit low down for me as I'm about 180cm tall. The Keeway 125 seat is much higher off the road and thats cool for taller guys and gals.
I would prefer a more upright seating position on the Keeway125 but its… Read Full Review

Hi mickles. The idle screw is on the righ hand side of the carb. You will notice a rubber pipe at the bottom of the carb. There is a screw just above the rubber pipe. The idle screw is the one above this one directly on the middle of the carb. Turn it clockwise a little bit. Have you had idle problems?
