Hi All — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

Hi All,

So picked up my new toy yesterday. :) I charged the battery since I suspected it was up to optimum but the start / stop system is not working....

Unfortunately I have no user manual yet, since they 'misplaced' it so can't really check what going on.

When I turn the switch on, a green dash light comes on and the same light turns off after a few seconds.....when I stop in traffic the bike stays on....I tried stopping and leaving both breaks applied, leaving just the left, leaving just the right, but the start stop doesn't work.

What can be the issue?

I want you opinion: don't you think that for 4399 pounds for the 2017 model they have to give AT LEAST 2 keys?

That's what happened today. I've lost the smart key in central London, I've called the Honda dealer, Dobles they said come here and we'll sort it out. 15 miles to go there and they didn't have any smart key! 112 pounds for an extra key and 172 for two extra key.

I think every motorbike you can buy has at least two keys, not the forza 125.

My only ride since October was a 60 miler on 7th March. The scooter started up for that ride but only just. Just got kitted up to go out for today and the battery is as flat as a pancake. I've got her on the Ctek charger at the moment but am a little worried. Anyone else experienced trouble with a battery after a winter layoff?

I know - 'cast not a clout till May is out', but look at the temperature this afternoon when I combined a ride with a climb (on foot) in the Mendip hills.

I have now done well over 100 miles on the new tyres (Citygrips) and the Forza is almost a different beast with them fitted. It seems to be much surer-footed, and responds quicker to steering and leaning. I feel 100% more confident with these tyres than the old 'standards'.

By the time that I got home around an hour after taking the picture of the thermometer, it was back down to 10 degrees, and the humidity was over 80% as a mist rolled in off the sea.

I'm currently very tempted to go for the MY2016+ Integra (MY2014 pictured.) Honda let me "borrow" one while my S-Wing was waiting for parts a few years ago, and I convinced myself then that I couldn't do without the under seat storage, give way about 30mpg and that I didn't "need" a 700cc. When I finally gave it back and got on my S-Wing, I thought it had broke as there was no oomph when I pulled away and nearly dropped it.

Now the MY2016/17 Integra has better DCT software, smoother ride and above all, I find myself in the unique position of actually having the cash (with he Forza trade in), it's become exceedingly tempting...

I've a dead cell in my battery and so need a replacement. The tell tale signs are a less than healthy start, heated grips not getting as hot as they should and the Idling Stop system refusing to work.

Thankfully the engine is so sweet, that it requires almost no current to spring to life, in fact, I reckon it would start with a PP9 and two AA's if shove come to push - Now there's an idea...

Thanks for letting me join. I have a blue/white Forza which is used for commuting in and out of Bristol - about 12 miles each way. Had the bike since August sand done about 1500 miles. The bike is fairly standard just added a thermometer dial so I know when it could be icy. Will be keeping an eye out for maintenance tips etc and will share any good or bad experiences I have.

I used to have a White S-wing 125 and loved it. The mirrors were fine apart from the rubber casing(they were a bit naff) I liked the way the seat opened(away from you) also the under seat carpet and light and also the remote controlled ignition key where I could open the seat and fuel lid. I wish these could have been included with the Forza 125. Which parts of your old bikes would you guys like on your Forsa's?


Hey guys hope you are all well — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

Hey guys, hope you are all well.

My oil change light came up today.

I did a service on 4000miles and the bike now is on 5550 miles. After 30 min ride you can feel a strong smell like burned something recently.

I will go and change it but any ideas why this might have happen and did anyone else had similar issue ?

Well , for the 3rd time since I bought my Forza (Nov 2015) the centre stand started to not spring back , I had to move it with my foot. I took off the stand (the easy part) , it was full dirt and grime and then replaced it but was unable to put the spring back on but I went to local dealer. I made a short video of the center stand dragging the last time it was doing this back in May. https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=dKUk2o9L3-I Has anyone else had issues with their center stand?


Hello all — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

Hello all.

I have 2 questions if you can help me out.

1, I have seen a video on Youtube. The guy from Crewe i believe painted the lettering on his tyres. I thought it look looked really cool. So has anyone done and whats the best product to use?

2, What have people done about the wind noise over the screen, as anyone fitted a deflector etc or other ways of getting round it?

Ok so after a call from P&H motorcycles whilst my bike had a new tyre fitted I was told my front and rear pads where at 1mm.

Now the rear pads where 14,700 miles old so I knew they where pretty gone. But the fronts where changed at 10k for after market pads

The after market pads where snatchy so this time I ordered Honda front and back

Having just changed the front this is the amount of meat they had left on...... Now I'm no expert but they look about half used much more then the 1mm quoted

The rears on the other hand are gone but I can't figure out how to remove the pads? Has anyone changed the rears yet? It looks as if I need to split the calliper in half?

Anyway moral of the story is check things for your self if you have the ability too as the fronts still have a few k left in them
