I am getting a tick tick sound from the engine which increases with increase in rpm. My odo reading is just 1350km. I mentioned it during the first service but they passed away as normal sound and it seems to have increased now. Is it something to do with tappets ? Is it normal?i am going for a 200 km ride on Sunday and I am worried.
PS: I do agree that I have redlined a few times after 1000km.

Yes, it is the engine tappet sound.

Nothing to worry as such. Even my bike has the same issue.
When I took it up with my mechanic, he said if he tries to solve it, there is also a possibility that it increases. So I let it go.

Don't worry. Get the air-filter, it will divert your attention.

The Yamaha R15 2.0 Ownership Report. Update: 30,000 kms-img_20131102_180401.jpg

Upgraded to a fatter section last week.
Got the Duke spec MRF Revz-C (both front and back) for INR. 5700/-

Rear: 150/60/R17
Front: 110/70/R17

Initial impressions:
  • More contact patch is providing better grip levels.
  • Shorter sidewall has made flicking a little easier.
  • The compound is a little more soft as compared to my OE Revz-S, so the braking distance has reduced too.

I know people do not recommend getting a fatter rubber, but then, one can't resist.

My OE MRF Revz-S lasted for 30,000 kms, they were nothing but just brilliant. Where people complained about having to change their tyres in 10k kms, I am a very lucky customer. (May be my daily route was a little better)

Many thanks Parrys for putting up an awesome long term review of R15. I can relate to most of your experiences on your thread (with possible exception of tyres - hadn't been as lucky).

I am riding the first version for almost 5 years now. Will complete 30K soon (have clocked 29.7K so far). Had a trouble free experience so far, touch wood.

Although it had been long 5 years, every hard ride still leaves a grin on my face (which only fellow R15 riders can understand). This is how I could resist the temptation to replace it with a higher displacement ride

The rear end of the helmet had *11* written on it. So I decided to get it operated by The Doctor. Surgery cost me under INR. 50.

At what odo reading did you change over to pod filters? Did you remove the air box or air box cap? Please post a picture of it I case you have one.

Guys,

Time to say good bye to the R15. And probably to the brand as well, if they don't wake up by October. (When I plan to buy my next bike).

30,000 km for rear tyre is a lot. I changed both tires at around 20,000 km. When did you change the front tyre?

My query is regarding the front tyre, how was the stability on different types of roads and corners. Did the front tyre scrape the mud guard? And any other pro's & con's in general? Thanks!

Hi Parrys,
I don't know if you had the predicament of overheating in your Yamaha R15. My bike was consistently getting overheating over last few weeks.
I had been suggested clutch plate change as one of the solutions. The clutch plate change is being quoted at Rs. 5,500/- I find it ridiculous that a bike costing approx 1 lac should have clutch plate costing this much.
Any input on this will be much appreciated.
Thanks

If not, get the coolant level checked too.
