Make a group with few other owners from your area and entrust the service for all the vehicles to some FNG (Friendly Neighbourhood Garage). That way, the fellow will have enough incentive to learn about the engine / clutch / electrical system. Encourage him to call some ASS technician for training / help on holidays or in the evening.

Normally, the vehicles keep running and there are only minor niggles like mirrors loosening, battery issues, brake adjustment, dirt in the carburettor, spark plug deposition etc. Most of the issues can be easily handled by the FNG without support from Yamaha. Guidance from ASS technician will help him in diagnosis and in sourcing the original spares.

Surely, you will find some small FNG in your area who is professional enough. With the support from a group of owners and with some small courtesies from your end, you shall get the support.

After some use but before needing any major maintenance, I would suggest you to sell the vehicles which are not present in the market in sufficient volumes.

I have a Fazer and it goes to a garage in Warje. I stick to this garage because of the mods I have done on my bike with their help and the owner is experienced yet helpful. But before taking my bike to him, I found no problems with Monarch & Suvarnrekha Yamaha. My bike was serviced at both the SVC's for close to 2 years. I still source all the required parts from them.

The only problematic Yamaha SVC's I have found in Pune are the Spirit Yamaha and the Phadke Yamaha. I had reported certain issues to Yamaha India about Phadke and they were prompt with their reaction.

Overall I feel Yamaha SVC's in Pune are really good. I have no experience with Kamla Yamaha but many of my friends take their R15's to Them and are happy about it.

I still feel you should stick to the ASC for the R15 until and unless you know a trusted Mechanic. I can refer you the garage in Warje I take my bike to. Is Warje convenient for you? I shall PM you his number once you confirm.

Thanks Rahul & Asit for your prompt reply.

1. My R15 >7 years ; Now requires maintenance beyond regular check ups
2. Rahul's suggestion is very practical for Ray and Alpha
3. Lately, Monarch (Parvati) is pushing me for unnecessary expenses (Almost 4k everytime) ; plus, they really lack ability to spot issues beyond a certain limit. They even managed to spoil my air filter box and an indicator during my last visit
4. After spending so much of $$$ every time, there is no satisfaction at the end (ASC)
5. Labour charges are ridiculously on the higher side (ASC)
6. For minor issues, have to keep the bike for almost a day (ASC)

When we switch the service center, first visit is always pleasant as they explain us how the previous service center ruined our bike and impress us by providing the best service for their long term benefits. Once they come to know that we are planning to stick to them forever, they start becoming ignorant.

Unfortunately, the road side garage chaps do not possess the tools and expertise required to service the R15.

Asit, frankly speaking, Warje would be very far for me, I stay on the other side of river.

Any reviews of Factory shop at Wakdevadi?

There is a small garage that used to service only Yamahas bang opposite SP College main gate, but this was quite a few years back. I don't remember the name now. You might enquire there.

Personally, I have had a good experience with Diamond Motorocycles in Karvenagar (Sahawas Society, to be more specific), but if Warje is far for you, then I guess same would be the case with Karvenagar.

Cheers,
Vikram

Thanks for the reply Vikram.

You are right, it's Ajinkya motors I think, It's still in operation. In fact, a visit to this garage is on my agenda. I always used to fancy Yamahas' whenever I used to pass by that garage during my childhood. It's bang opposite to SP college.

However, do you have any prior experience with him?

Dear Mods,

Kindly request you to change the name of this thread from Yamaha RX100 to Yamaha (in general).

thanks in advance.

Nope, I've never owned a Yamaha, so didn't have any occasion to visit him.

However, once upon a time, I've warmed the SP "Katta" for donkey's years, and remember that Ajinkya Motors was perpetually overflowing with Yamaha bikes waiting to be serviced.

If that's the case even now, you better call and take an appointment before visiting

Cheers,
Vikram

Default Re: Expert mechanic for Yamaha RX100 in Pune?

Folks I got the engine redone for my 2002 RX 135 4 speed. Original new block was not available and had to make a compromise there. Javed (contact number added on his request and with his permission - +91 9890759567) at Tilak Spares near Padamjee park in Pune did an excellent job again. The power seemed to be a bit on the lower side initially before the first oil change. But now seems to have come ba ck from the dead. Have held on to the original old block and hoping to get it re-sleeved and re-bored in absence of a new original block.

As of now the RX is my daily driver and I'm really enjoying the daily commute which has become longer now that I have a new job which is further out from home. On the weekends its a struggle to pick the scooter to potter around because of the storage, but drawn to the RX by default due to my sheer love for its super peppy nature now. It's as good as new now (well if you ignore the non OE block which I have on it now,) what with it's completely redone bearings and piston plus the semi synth Valvoline 2t oil.

Had the tires changed about 6 months back to Cirac Streets and I must say the bike is quite planted and gives me confidence traversing notorious Pune traffic daily.

Hoping to finish the customary 2k-2.5k run in so that I can take it down to Lavasa or Pangani for a long awaited road trip.

A black Duke 390 is also on the way hopefully by the end of the month :-)
