Honda Dio Engine work-Worth spending?

Recommended Posts

No, best to sell it for whatever you get and buy a new vehicle.

Speaking from personal experience with an old Bajaj bike (Boxer). Engine work was needed. So asked around for a price and was offered Rs 5000. Didnt sell it. Spend about 12,000 on Engine work and repainting. Sold it after one year for Rs 9000. Not worth the effort

It has run around 65000kms.

The engine is giving a lot of problems now like starting issues and extremely low mileage.

Symptoms show that engine work should be carried out and its confirmed if engine is eating up lot of engine oil. Inspect condition of body, tyres, suspension, brakes(drum) of your dio and if in good condition then engine work will surely make your dio run like new, otherwise sell it.

The service center guys say that engine work has to be done and it will cost Rs.10,000-12,000

Kindly suggest is it worth it?

And if you want to cut costs on engine work I will suggest to consult an expert and experienced mechanic and get it done by buying your own spares and pay your mechanic his labour. As all genuine spares are well available in market prefer buying oem, you may also find the genuine honda spares are available below MRP (For this take help from your mechanic). But this is hectic job too.

Dear himanshuagarwal.

For a Honda engine, engine work is never recomended. Even if you do, the engine will lose its refinement and NVH levels will increase. You may have to visit your mechanic every other day. Spending 12k on such work is not worth it.

As mentioned by all you should sell it or exchange it, as it's covered 65,000 Km & for a scooter it's equal to 6.5 lakh Km driven car! But deo is first vehicle of lots of guys & they truely love it! If this is your case, then spend the money on it! As nothing is as valuable as your memories!

Engine work is done only and only when the engine oil is getting evaporated rapidly.

Dude, whatever you do, dont spend 10000 to 12000 on its maintenance, you wont get this much amount after repairing and maintenance.

Sell it and get a new scooter.
