Yes it should be fine. My colleagues RTR had it's engine broken down in a similar fashion. That bike has been doing well in performance and efficiency till now. It has run close to 6k now.

I suggest you change the engine oil first at 500kms and next change at 1500kms before sticking to company suggested intervals.

Congrats once again!

Its a hottie in yellow, and the exhaust beat is something that makes my head turn every time a RTR passes by!

The RTR, as with most performance vehicles can be run in hard, in fact, should be run in hard. I will not make any suggestions to avoid feeding controversies. To each his own. Following the manufacturer's suggestions provides a peacefull mind.

@Technocrat
Bike looks Awesome, congratulations on your purchase Please keep up updated.
Best Regards

I followed the Motoman method But i wouldn't advise it to anyone else because it's controversial. What might work for me may not work for others. i didn't find any detrimental effects on my bike after following Motoman.

Nice Bike. TVS tires? Are they any good? Will the R15s tires fit?

Mileage he's getting between 45 to 50. Top speed during two up riding showed 114, i was riding it, but this wasn't a good run as we took the bypass which is always notorious for crosswinds.

Hmm.. the stock tyres are okay in the dry but it's not very good in the wet. R15 tyre would fit the front wheel. Rear is 18".

I just checked the service book & found that the first service is at 500-750kms & not at 1000 kms. This is something new I believe with Pulsar & ZMA it was at 1000.

Sankar what does your manual say?

Kedar, for the Karizma R version the first service is at 500-750kms. I'm not sure about the older Karizmas.
