I think he cleaned the chain thoroughly and put up the photos prior to lubricating it.

How do you mange to clean & lube the chain without paddock stands? I'm facing the same trouble too...all the ASCs say they don't have paddock stands. What is the alternative? As a result, I never get to clean & lube the chain & have to wait for my service interval for the ASC to do it.

Many happy returns mate,
Good to see she is still going strong. 82000kms. I dont think you are planning to sell it yet, and there are many happy miles to follow. Seeing how it started with the engine relacement and all, I would have given up. But you have kept her well. Thumbs up for that.

Keep riding

Hi guys.
So I wanted to know whether installing an aftermarket filter for the bike will bring about any major changes in the performance? (sorry if this question has already been asked previously in this thread). And I wanted to know how I can improve the lighting ability of the headlights and the pilot lamps, as in what sort of bulbs should I get?

My CBR is manufactured in March '11 and its battery [OE] lasted till June '15, not bad, eh?
But it didn't give any warning sign, simply refused to fire up the bike. Luckily was near a battery shop then. Damages were Rs. 1750. Gifted the mechanic the old battery else would have got 100-200 in return.

I have a friend who has installed a K&N and using it for about 3 years now. Apart from that intake noise, I didn't feel any discernible change of performance. On the other hand, putting a full system exhaust did make a change to the low end of my motorbike. A change for the better.

Regarding the headlights, for me a 4300K 55W HID did the best job. However, since using an HID means you cannot use the pass light, I removed it after close to two years of usage. Now, I use a 100/90W halogen with dedicated relay and wiring. Works like a charm. This setup is in use for about 10 months now.

That's really good! Mine's a March '11 bike too, and the battery gave up around Jan this year. Which one did you put this time?

Err, I'd say it's the other way round. You, sir, are lucky. If you look at the number of charging circles your battery has gone through, it has done very well for itself. Your bike had done more kilometres on 21-Jan-2014 than the present ODO readings of both our bikes put together.

To give a perspective, we have a WagonR is our family that has done 14000 kms since April, 2007 when it was bought from the showroom, and still runs on the original battery without any issues.

Yes, this is a good analogy. Not that Exide is bad, but I've decided to give a try with Amaron 7Ah next, just for a change.

Yea. I agree with what Naveen says . A drill connected to the front wheel and wheel hoisted up using paddock stand and let to run. Lol

Jokes apart, that is some seriously fast paced mile crunching.
