Just register and post what you need. They speak english and they will be happy to serve you with PCX special parts, handmade optimized variators, smart tuning, electronics, boxes, seats, whatever. There is a huge amount of nice things to get there, because in Thailand the PCX has been quite common for two years now.

We also buy Honda PCX original spare parts there, since they are cheaper than over here, including taxes and shipping.

If you really like to get those boxes, I doubt you will find a source other than that. Aling who is running the shop has got lots of fotographs with PCX parts there, but those are not visible unless you register for his forum shop. I can assure, there are no costs and he is a nice guy who will do anything to fulfil your parts requests.

BTW Aling brought one of his PCX to run over 120km/h (speedo) without being any noisy and without increasing fuel consumption! This can easily be done to other PCXs as well:

Just in case you like these things...

My PCX needed a slightly taller windscreen. I found a Givi smoked for $89. I questioned why shipping was $25? Dude said cuz it was special. The freaking box was as big as the PCX.



Had to remove 2 screws and one piece of plastic to get to the windscreen bolts.



It was very easy.



Done







It's around 7-8 inches taller than the stock Honda screen.



I've got 300 miles on this lil PCX and it is running great. I hit 64 mph on the GPS today on flat ground. The engine is starting to loosen up a bit as it is accelerating much faster.

64 mph?

Howdy,

Siyeh, you are killing me! My Sh150i has only managed 60 mph on flat ground. Then again, I tip the scales at 270 lbs. Congrats on selecting Honda's best value in scooters! Dollar for dollar, cc for cc..there's no beating that sleek PCX!

Well, I go 200# and rarely ATGATT so maybe that's why mine is slightly faster? Don't know. I think the new screen has made it more aero,,,

Weight does make a significant difference, but its only 70 pounds which shouldn't make THAT big of a difference. Maybe a couple MPH or so, but I wouldn't expect it to slow it down to much. The SH150i SHOULD be way faster due to it's price tag, but I guess not?

64 MPH on GPS is great, getting close to my Elite 150 at 68-70 MPH GPS.

It is working well, thank you. Of course there is noise but at least my sunglasses stay on my head now at 60. . I, um, am not an ATGATT guy 100%. So shoot me. As you prolly know, Wisconsin is not a helmet state.

Life is full of choices

So, the dealer where I bought my PCX had a scooterite gathering Sunday. It turned out to be a 200 mile day. There was only one PCX there.



Mostly Vespa's and Genuine Buddy's. Do scooters and CanAm's not get along?



This guy had a thing for mirrors.





It was a fun day. Neat to see so many nice scoots young and old.
The PCX averaged 93.7 MPG for the 200 miles and most of it was balls to the wall. (Trying to keep up to those two CanAm's on a poker run) This lil bike is starting to grow on me. I am at 1000 miles with no probs so far,,,

PCX rocks!

Howdy,

Siyeh, you show me up every time you post about your impressive PCX! Mid 60s for mph, low 90s for mpg..and all for $1,000 less than my Honda Sh150i. Nevermind the better underseat storage and front glove compartment(s).
Basically you are getting 5 more mph, 10 more mpg, better storage..and all for $1,000 less.

I have put 2000 trouble free miles on my PCX so far. We have a foot of snow on the ground here in Wisconsin so all of our family's bikes are sleeping in the basement. The PCX scored a few items for Christmas.

Some handguards.





A tunnel bag.





A GIVI topcase.









Sorry for the messy basement, but the bikes don't complain. It's warm and dry they sleep well.
