Just came back from a 60 km run. No problems whatsoever, and the self starter worked fine after the ride too. I guess time will tell the other answers now

I need some help now. Should the fuel supply switch always be in the ON position, or should I move it to the OFF position when I switch off the bike? Some people advised the latter, whereas some advised the former. The problem that I mentioned earlier seems to have happened because I didn't close the switch properly, and hence the loss of power. Can I leave it in the ON position throughout? Need your help guys.

it is a debatable topic but nothing should happen to a motorcycle for 10 years if the fuel supply is in "ON" position
