Yesterday I took on a R15 on my BULLET. Was able to keep the novice behind me for hundred meters, and then a speed-breaker saved my respect. The poor dude was hurt by not being able to catch up with a grand-father bike and zoomed off

I recently joined this fourm (Team BHP) its cool, however i too own an R15 its about 15 days old and i have driven 800 kms on it, feel great to ride it immaterial of it tyre size which every one talks about (coult have been bigger) i say its AWSOME

It gives me close to 40 kms/ltr, Max speed i have done is 100 on that, belive me it can go faster its just that i need to be under 6000 RPM for another 200 kms and later will let u all guys how fast i went

Till then all of you have safe riding/driving, wear helmets and seat belts while driving - G

I would suggest change it during second service or after 2000kms. Don't know what synthetic oil to put, keep us updated as i also need to put synthetic oil on my R15.

guys, did anyone here fix up a wider rear tyre?

heard a rumour that the 09 R15 will have quite a few changes, is that true?
if so when will the 09 R15 come into the market?

use Motul 300v or Agip fully synth. Shell synth is also good.
