Default Re: TVS Jupiter or something else?

Hi,

I am using TVS Jupiter for ~2 years (with regular maintenance schedule followed).

Initially, my monthly usage was ~800 km per month, but has now come down to ~150 km per month.

After the free services (free labour charges), my SA has been advising clutch overhauling/transmission oil check at every 3-month intervals for preventive maintenance. The cost of the same comes to ~300 Rs.

My question is that are other Jupiter owners (or automatic scooter owners) advised clutch overhauling/transmission oil check at every service visit?

I am bit skeptical because my usage does not seem to warrant the abovementioned service.

Also, at my last service (in March 2017), the SA advised replacing brake pads (the scooter has clocked ~6100 km till now). Is a brake pad change required so soon, given the number of km clocked? Or is it because of the age of the vehicle (~2 years).

Could existing Jupiter owners help to answer my questions? Or could some one suggest another TVS centre in Borivali West, Mumbai?

Thanks!

For Jupiter, transmission oil change is required only once in a year, not every 3 months.
Please ask SA why clutch overhaul is needed in every service? If SA can't provide satisfactory/convincing answer don't do it (applies for other items as well). If SA insists on a particular service item, please check maintenance schedule in user manual.

Do brakes make screeching sound when you apply brakes? If not, no need to replace brake pads. Please inspect thickness of pads when your Jupiter goes for servicing next time.

I too have a Jupiter which is about 2 years and 2 months old with 32xx kms on the odo.

Clutch does not require opening up every service unless there is an issue of slippage or noise with it. The initial batch of Jupiter had clutch bell issue and oil seal issue which they replaced silently during the first service (not many customers have a clue about it). Post the new clutch bell installed, there is no reason to open it in every service. They charge you but do nothing apart from opening the clutch cover blowing air which is not worthy of being called clutch overhaul.

My Jupiter has visited the service center only twice in 2 years, both the times for Oil change and in one visit I requested for the oil seal change (kicker oil seal). It is running as expected with 45-48 kmpl mileage when ride in green zone (which I rarely do) and around 35 kmpl when you ride with the throttle wide open.

One annoying with TVS vehicles is the brake drum noise. They simply cant figure a way out to keep it silent. Just run a few kms, the brake dust accumulates and makes nasty squeaking noises. Only solution is to clean it every 500 kms

Is your scooty being washed everyday ? Does anyone wash it on regular basis ?

If so avoid pouring water on the tyres, the screeching is mainly because of water seeping in thru the drums in my opinion.

Try this and see if you get a solution.

Thank you for your quick reply. I will keep your suggestions in mind when I take my scooter for service next time.

Thanks a lot! You are correct, Jupiter's brakes squeal when not used for a long time (maybe 2-3 days).

Hi Friends,

Two days back I took the delivery of my favorite two wheeler TVS JUPITER CLASSIC (Sunlit Ivory).

Purchased from Ramkay TVS Adyar Chennai. I was happy with their professional service & commitment to customer. Very professional team.

Drive is good, smooth, very comfortable to drive. Some pictures.

I didn't opt for the the extra fitting (those steel pipes all around). Just took the stock vehicle. Enjoying the the drive!
