Can someone tell me at what intervals should I change the engine oil in my Honda Dio? Also, which oil should be used?

The engine oil is changed at every service as mentioned in the service manual.

In case its not, then its good to change the engine oil every 2500-3000 kms.

For my Dio i am using the Honda recommended oil itself and it seems to be running fine.

You got a English manual with the Dio or Hindi? I got the latter, and I can't understand a word of it.

Got a bi-lingual one actually! Both English and Hindi in the same manual.

The service coupons also have both English and Hindi printed in the same coupon.

With my Activa which I bought a month back, I too received the Hindi manual. On a few pages (very minimal), there are some english text but apart from that everything else in Hindi. I even offered to buy an english version (if available) but was told that all manuals are in hindi only

The only saving grace is that the service coupons are in English.

I asked the same. I told the dealer that at the least the manual should be in English and one local language. They said that earlier, the manuals were in Japense and now in Hindi only.
Talking in Hindi and reading Hindi are two diff things.

Default Rubber Quality

Hi all,

The rubber mould along the grab rail on my "un-registered Dio" is come off.

"I enjoy quality" and I would appreciate if they can fix it for me. My service center/showroom is closed for they day and when I would bring this to their notice, I am sure they would want to clear off their palms stating that some kid in my building did it. I am confident of this as all my vehicles are parked safely and this being still running on Temp plates, is not covered even 100 Kms.

Well, I hope they stick to their "I enjoy quality." motto and replace the part without complaining.

Did the rubber mould break off or just moved from the original position? If it's the latter, then they won't do anything. It's a problem in all Dio's, the mould is very loose!

It was the rubber mould that lost its pin. They have fixed it now as the vehicle is still unregistered.

Dio owners,

Both of my Dio mirrors have this habit of rotating clockwise and anit-clockwise in full glory. They never stick to a position where they are meant for. During the first service, I had this problem for the left mirror and it was rectified. Now the same thing reoccurs for both the mirrors.

Have any of you faced this problem? It is really annoying when you are ridiing and when you want to look at the mirrors for the traffic behind you will be greeted by swinging mirrors LOL!

Well this has not been a recurring issue but it happened once to the left side mirror which was rectified by a local mechanic since i did not want it to fall off on the way to the SVC
