Aftermarket pads are on the list. Im happy with the exhaust note. Messing with anything aftermarket will mess the 5 yr warranty. I don't mind how it looks and sounds.

I wonder if this tappet sound. It is there in most new generation RE bikes.

I feel the engine knocking sound is also due to the fuel pump and may be when the fuel pressure reduces starving the engine and causing it to knock a bit.
I'm confident the guys at Mahindra will sort it.

The bike has never had a shunt or drop ever. The tight handle and dead feel characteristic was observed on other Mojo bikes too. It's been addressed by adjusting the forks.

Hello Jay,
How was the fork adjusted?
Did it involve changing any internal components?
Please do post a picture of the fork and the clamps after adjustment.
Would like to adjust the fork on my bike too.
Thanks

Hi. Sorry for the delayed reply.
No components are replaced for the adjustment.
They just adjust the forks.
Just go to the service center and tell them to adjust it by 10-15mm. It will surely transform your bikes handling.

Thanks for the suggestion.Had the fork clamps lowered by about 18mm last week and as mentioned by you,the bike's handling is transformed!
No more lethargic movement of the front end - sharp turns are in now.
And although the rake and trail are reduced,there is absolutely no impact on highway stability at any speed.
In fact,the sharp response increases confidence on the highway.

That's brilliant! Any change in the bike's balance post this alteration? The bike always suffered from a confused intent IMO being designed to be sporty and then later being developed as a tourer, the Pirelli's feel a like they are a few leagues above for the mechanical handling capabilities of the bike. Does the weight bias still lead the tail to step out under braking?

The bikes balance after this adjustment has only become better. The confused front end feeling has gone. This mod has got nothing to do with the tail. It has only improved the turning in and handling and sorted the earlier dead front end feel with.
The adjusted fork setting is how it should have come from the factory in stock form.

Guys,

I would anyone of you be kind enough to find out the price of the front rotor? This is for another project and since there are no Mahindra Mojo sales in the place I am from the Mahindra guys are not aware of the parts cost.

Thanks in advance

Pramod

Its a little observation I made by speaking with a lot of riders. Most Indian riders who have graduated to 30/40 bhp machines from the earlier drum braked 100 cc commuters have been complaining about brakes feeling inadequate for the power. Upon further querying I figured out their braking technique is to blame. Most try and trail brake (brake using the rear brake first), then gradually apply the front brakes, where in the opposite must be done, brake using the front (almost 70/80%), then if required the rear needs to be used, this is especially true when using a bike which has a forward/rear weight distribution setup. Secondly, most seem to be pressing the clutch along with the brake, negating the use of engine braking, leading to longer braking distances or a hairy control problem. Abroad riders graduating to a higher class of machine need a different license along with a certification from a riding school, here anyone can pick up any machine and ride, the license says valid for 50cc and upwards

I am just curious, how did you learn the right technique of using front + Rear + engine braking combo?

25 years of riding, starting on a scooter and graduating into a 600 cc bike. Few spills, scary moments, riding groups, Internet videos and still learning. Dream is to enroll in a riding school and hone my skills. In the bucket list.

Thanks for clarifying my doubts, isint it little harsh painting all Indians with the same brush? Like you everyone else is learning. Now most "Indians" who used to ride 100cc comuter bikes use similar braking techniques such as yourself.

Years back people used to think helmet is an accessory, the same people are not investing in good riding gear. A large majority of riders in Kerala who ride a Duke 200 or above have a minimum LS2 helmet. I hope you got the point, sorry if I sounded harsh.

Peace out

Pramod

Volcano Red has a waiting period of two weeks or more. White and Black you should be able to get immediately. It depends on your city also.

There are 3 colors as of now. Volcano Red, White and Black.
You can expect anywhere between 27 to 33. It'll also depend a lot on your riding style. I ride 80+ kms every day and get about 28kmpl.
P.S. I ride hard but not as hard as a maniac

Three colours were provided during the launch - White, Black and Red/White. Later matt finish red was also added to the list, though you had to pay a premium of couple of thousands for this colour.

Mileage is all dependent on your driving style. If you don't run the bike like a maniac you can get about 30+ but come what may, the mileage will never go below 23-24 even if you are a maniac driver.

What ever you do, beware of the brakes and talk to other Mojo Owners on braking technique as the rear brakes are best not to be used on this bike.
