You know all dealers are same, would suggest in this order Sapphire/Anand/Silicon/City/Haiku/Planet.
Try Anand, heard from a good friend, who is into such business that they are good.

Default Update - Odo reading 17410 kms

Got the 4th Service done. Had to change the chain, front and rear sprockets. Also replaced the fork oil as it had seen awesome roads in Spiti and Leh areas.

Cost of Chain and Sprockets was appx INR 2000
Fork Oil was appx INR 400
Paid service charges was little high INR 500

So total bill was around INR 3600 with misc things.

Can you please elaborate on that part? How was the handling with all the luggages and it's setup?

It was really fun and depth of experience riding in Leh.
No cold start issues in any of the bike. One crank and the engines were bubbling with activity.
Frankly speaking i personally did not feel any difference in handling but only thing was if you put down your bike, then lifting it alone would be problem because of the additional weight.

Ahhh, guess that's the mistake which many of us bikers do when our motorcycles fall down. There is an entirely different way on how we can lift the fallen motorcycle. The bike has to be lifted with our back facing it and then lifting. This ways even a 200+ kilo bike can be lifted without exerting ourselves and alone. Will talk you through if you are still unsure on it when we catch up.

Default Update - Odo reading 24036 kms

Was time for 5th paid service.
Had a small sound in the cone sets. Eventually had to be changed. Cost INR 1100 for both the pipes.
Started hearing knocking sound in the engine. Got the shims checked and they had to be replaced. 2 exhaust and 1 inlet had to be changed.
Total Service cost was INR 3728

Now its time to think about the tire changes, specially the rear one.

Santosh, Think this is the third time am observing about the Shims, is it a regular maintenance affair or is it just a one off case where your example seems to have some issues?

Well Rear tire, think you can put in another 10K before you wanna replace them. You going in for conti or michelin?

Had mentioned to you about the issue but changing it for the second time. I remember reading the manual as every 12k, Valve clearance has to be inspected and if required adjusted accordingly. So in that case looks like a regular maintenance affair.

No Mahesh, rear tires cannot take another 10k probably couple of thousands kms that's it.

Which tire is actually a big question but do not have options as of now in indian market.
1. Contigo
2. Dunlop Tuff Grip
3. MRF Zapper Q (Tube) (Not sure on this still if it fits)
4. PSD (Hardly available, if available over-priced and Soft Compound)

Santosh,
Suppose you want to stick to stock dimensions of 140/70*17? Have heard a lot about the ZapperQ, and their performance in all round conditions including dirt, slimy, gravel conditions. Are you sure this is a tube tire?

Zapper Q is available in 140/70*17 size, did consider them briefly for my RD but then the current set are doing just fine and more importantly did not feel the need to splurge those Gandhis

If you had considered for RD, it confirms that it should be tubed right ?

Mine is due for shim change at 42K; when I get the work done, this will be the second time; first was during 22.8K

Rear tire lasts a good a little over 19K that's all; anything above that is inviting trouble

Choose one of these; there're no better choices; MRF is tube type though it supports tubeless while Dunlop is tubeless.

If you're replacing the front, MRF Revz 110/70-17, think no further, brilliant tire for the moment in the market

Tubeless tires can be used on regular spoke wheels with a tube in it
