They have been exporting the 500 EFi for a little over an year I think. Shows some amount of competence.

Your local mechanics might not be able to help anymore. But I trust the more established ones to get a hang of things soon.

Another silly thing I heard is that installing the RE supplied upswept pipe voids the RE warranty! If true, this takes the prize for silly company policies.

I agree with this point but we all know how bad RE dealers are and how bad any service centers are there in India.

Local mechs shudn't be able to help of course unless they go and learn how to do it. The established ones will have to do it to keep the business coming to them.

It greatly depends on the dealer. Some dealers don't bother while others void the warranty promptly.

Cheers,

Jay

The best RE service center Bangalore, relatively speaking of course is the one attached to the RE brand store. While there, you must speak to Mr Sounderrajan, the works manager. He knows his stuff and solves problems very systematically. Moe importantly he speaks proficient english which may be a very important factor if you are relocating.

Cheers,

Jay

So far, the best service center that I have experienced in 5 years of owning the Bullet has been the Jayanagar Brand store. Good service and though I had left the bike there for only a chain-sprocket change, they had topped the engine oil and straigtened a niggling injury to my brake light. And they charged much less than what my usual mechanic also for the chain sprocket change.

I still wonder if I regret buying the 350.

For me it was not difficult to make decision. Money was not a constraint. More Power, More Torque, EFI < More Mileage. "I am loving it".
Looking back at your posts, no post dropped any hint of 350cc; when you said you bought home 350 classic, it was quite surprising for me. Dont have regrets, "More Smiles Per Miles" .. just keep smiling .
