Pat, I have been there once and would surely go once more to meet you. Thanks for the headsup on Jain automobiles.

plugugly, I am getting reasonable support from Razack, but I am sure I will need to meet Moosa/Fairoze someday. Thanks for the info.

Aston.Martin, Thanks, I am enjoying the ride.


Problems I have seen in my 5 month ownership
(1) Clutch needs frequent adjusting
(2) Chain needs frequent adjusting
(3) The Swingarm was a bit loose, my bike would literally slide under me under braking. My smart cousin figured out the probelm.
(4) The wheels need some true-ing. I will get this sorted out on my first 6-month service. I might get new tyres.
(5) The custom made brake pedal broke, luckily while parked at home (testing new brake lights)
(6) Tickler recommended during cold starts. Pump.pump.pump and then a smart kick.
(7) Replaced Horn (Rs. 100), Battery (Amco/Kinetic, Rs 800), bulbs
(7) Post superbike riding experience, I cannot live without the front brake. I use both brakes on my RK.

Lots of people chat you up on the road. Typically, these are past owners and they reminisce fondly "Best bike, Sir". The bike smokes up a storm while idling. Best to shut it off at signals.

Hi:

I see that you have a problem with your bike swinging to one side when you brake. Im glad someone found out what the problem was but this is what I wanted to point out in the first post itself. Lots of us changed the braking to rod system because of the contant snapping of the cables but most of us also faced the problem of the bike pulling to one side when we braked. I honestly cant explain why but this is something a lot of us did face. I tried out the rod system in my first yezdi 10 years back and now the Y350 that I have has this same system and I find the same problem in it.

The Bike has a cam operated leg clutch! This works even if youuse the clutch lever, hence the clutch play..use the clutch lever only for standing starts unless you'd like to master the cam bite point!

Looks like your petrol oil ratio is more than 2 to 2.5%.

Yes, indeed. The rebuild mechanic advised 40ml/litre and I have been following that religiously. He even suggested 50ml/litre on long rides, which I dont follow.

The 40ml per litre is just for the initial hundred kms or so. You could come down to 25ml per litre henceforth.

Too much of oil in the system will lead to excessive smoking as well as carbon build up at the plug.
