  1. I have a 2021 Lexmoto LXR125 and so far so good with reliability. It also looks and sounds amazing! However, if you are going to be riding your bike in all weathers due to doing Uber eats I wouldn't suggest you buy a Chinese manufactured bike. Spend a little more and get something a bit more robust. Honestly, in the long run you'll be glad you did.
  2. Update No.2 - My brother popped over to see me at the weekend and adjusted the clutch pedal and it slips into 1st perfectly now. So happy! I envisaged it being a right ball ache to fix but turns out it only needed a slight adjustment. My riding now is so much more enjoyable knowing I can actually get it into 1st without any effort Thanks for all the comments and help.
  3. Update - Went out last night and things were a lot better. The travel on the clutch is further than I expected so once I got used to that it knocked into 1st much easier. It's going to take some more time to get used to though and a few more trips out on the road.
  4. Thanks all for the comments. I feel a bit more reassured now. I understand Lexmoto's seem frowned upon by the biking community so I did wonder if it's just poor parts but everything else seems sweet.....for now I'll head out later this evening while the roads are quiet and see if I can do any better. Thanks again
  5. So, I've just taken delivery of my first bike, an LXR125, but I seem to be struggling with gearing when approaching junctions. I know how to change gear up and down, I think it's more to do with the procedure when approaching a junction or a set of lights. So as an example, when I notice I have to slow down when coming up to a junction I apply the brakes and change down the gears in one go, let's say from 5th to 2nd without letting the clutch out in between, then slowly approach in 2nd. However, I seem to be stopping with it still in 2nd which means I'm trying to change to 1st when stationary. I assume this isn't correct but it feels more natural doing it this way. 1st gear really struggles to engage when stationary so there have been times when traffic is piling up behind me. Any help on what the correct procedure is would be really helpful. Thanks Josh
