Suppose he will be killing the chain by regularly lubricating it without cleaning it sufficiently. Out of interests you said he rides & rides...what would be the average trip?

He has done 17,000+ kms with his CBR. The Karizma reads at ~ approx 2L.

Bingo, i was correct. Good work there.

Mahesh,
We can also use the cleaner similar way before lubing. Just a small innovative way to get rid of major problem you face during long rides.

Santosh,
Would this not mar the looks though? Definitely a very doable/working solution and find this to be more effective than putting it on race stand to lube the chain.

Mahesh, when you tour for say like more than 1000 kms, looks does not matter but the reliability of the bike matters, you know that better.
So in that case to take care of the bike this is a best option.

Default 2nd service/6 month up-date

I have barely managed to clock some 1200 odd kms since the last service.

The odo stands at ~2,200 kms whereas it should have breached the 5,000 mark by now under normal usage.

Was riding for my commutes for the past 10 days, but after getting heat-stroke (D-Ring helmet* jacket/gloves) it becomes too much of a torture during commuting & the Car is brought to duty. Evenings, the CBR would be out.

The bike went through a good wash, a change to FS oil and oil filter change as well. The service costed me Rs. 1,020.

I for one don't see any change despite the change to FS. My riding would be further take a beating for a good two months.

* It is a pain to fasten/loosen it while standing still in harsh sun.

A Small Up-Date

My CBR got its first (and maybe only) upgrade which I longed for, - Brake Line. A steel braided brake-line.

The braking has improved, the squishy feeling is gone. There is sharpness in braking though you still can't modulate as well, but much better than what was as an OE.

Let me try it over a set of switch-backs, shall up-date accordingly. My commute doesn't make the disc plate hot as hell, so waiting for that moment to gauge its performance.

My heart-felt thanks to the dear friend & fellow rider who shipped it from Bombay & called up numerous times to know whether its all well

The cost is pretty cheap, I would say dirt cheap. It was shipped to me from Bombay. I shall let you know the details ASAP. Pics too will come soon. As of now it appears thinner than your OE line.

The modulation has improved as well and now, I do notice the front dive a bit more pronounced but nothing un-nerving.

I spoke with them. These are Teflon lines, rubber coated. Much better than steel braided lines or Chinese ones.

I am extremely happy with the line. If fellow CBR riders are interested, I can post the manufacturer's address and you can take up with them. Costs around ~2K.

Here are the pictures.

My handle had gone for a toss & felt worse than any bikes I have ridden. P-180 Classic came close, but was still ahead.

The Honda boffins have designed the cone set in such a way that it takes you 4 hours to grease the cone set. Yes Sir, you read it right. 4 hours

You have to remove the front fairing & its parts. The tank & the panel below it remain, else everything is taken off, wheels, shock absorbers...

While it is back to how it was on day 1, it happened a bit quickly for my liking. The grease they had used (@ factory) to lubricate didn't appear very good & had caked up a bit, leading to handle jam.

When everything got removed, the mechanic too was in a state of shock as to how was I able to corner & no, I am not exaggerating, it was that bad.

The SA came for billing & prior to me, the mechanic gave him an earful. Result - Rs. 25 for coolant (which isn't related to it anyways) & zilch paid. Not even for wash.

Thanks

I did not know even CBR came with Bybre.

Somehow assumed that since the Karis had Nissin calipers, the CBR being the next generation and premium offering would have had the same or better.
