I recently discovered that my bike is slightly off balance, it veers towards to the right side,slightly, when ridden hands free.

Anyone please, can you tell me how to balance the bike, like if there is any method which I can use.

Handsfree is for bluetooth only - Not for anyone with real tooth (bad joke)

Just take it to the service center. Should be some alignment issue.

I dont want to do something which I don't know and make things worse. There are two KTM service centres in Cochin, one is nearby my residence and other, my office. And they are by far the best in hospitality when compared to any service stations I have been, be it Maruti, Hyundai, Honda, Mahindra, Enfield, Bajaj or Tata. I hope they will solve the issue once I give my bike for a thorough check up, next week.

Any fellow owners using the Philips Xtreme Vision bulb for their rides? A salient review perhaps?

Total price? What is the warranty of the bulb? Can I get it installed in any SVC?

Thank you for the info. I'm very keen to try it on my ride, as I hear it's a must buy for anyone who likes night riding.

Hi ,

Anyone has any idea about Dr Ebonho. He has been completely silent for close to a couple of months.

The last he was here was when he picked up his 390

CHeck the air pressure in the tyres.
I faced a similar problem. but the problem got resolved once the tyre pressure was set right to 31-F and 35-R.

Don't you face loss of grip/braking issues with such high figures? I use 26F and 31R (Nitrogen), and a few days back got it topped up before a bike ride. I suspect the fellow topped up the rear a tad too much than what I asked him to, and my rear tire skidded for a while during an instance of hard braking!

Sorry. my bad. its 25F and 29 R. if the pressure it too high i used to feel that the hadle had been stiff and the bike pulled to one side. Initially i suspected it to be a faulty coneset, but it was the high tire pressure

Too late to check that. I already gave the bike to the service center. There is also a weird noise which becomes shriller on higher rpms. And also another sound similar to tappet noise, which is quite annoying. I maintain tyre pressure above 30. May be that is the problem. Anyways they are checking the cone assembly too.
