Hey Ravinder, no update on your thread since a long time. Hope your Red dwarf is rocking as usual . I have scheduled the 30K service appointment for my Orange Tank this Friday. I need your inputs on the service. Besides the seat belts not retracting, I don't have any other issues. I am not planning for MLD fitment as the wheel spin issue is not much of a concern for me. Do I need to get anything else checked besides the regular 30K service? Any other parts' recall/replacement off late?

I did get back my dirty air filter, planning to check the dimensions and see if I can replace this with a K&N Scorpio filter as its just plain stupid that my only option for a clean air filter is to replace it every 12-15K kms.
Were you able to try this out, the K&N Scorpio filter on your Red Dwarf or have you figured out the how to DIY clean the existing air filter element? My Indica's air filter cleaning was so very easy. Just remove the 4 clips by hand, loosen the front cover, remove the filter element, tap it, remove the dust by blowing compressed air/ vacuum cleaner air and refit it. It will be of great help if you could figure out how to clean the TUV's air filter element.

Hi Deepak - have been tied up with work and other commitments and hence no update here. Dwarf is doing good but usage has decreased as I have stopped driving to office.

I had got my modulators (TUV has 2) replaced a month or so ago as I faced power and FE drop issue once again. The new modulators are different from the old ones but if you dont have any issues, would suggest you dont ask for a replacement. Apart from this, the dwarf is running fine and I have only been doing some weekend runs. Odo stands at 36.5K kms and I think I will touch 40K in Jan 2018.

Nope I havent had time to do this or figure out a way to clean the filter. I dont think there is any point in cleaning the current filter as its a wet type filter and blowing air will have minimal impact. Would suggest you just replace it as part of your 30K service.

30K service you will need to get oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter replaced. Ensure that they check brake pads and grease pins. Also get your in cabin air filter cleaned if you havent done the same in a while. Apart from the above, I dont think you need to get anything changed/replaced. Get WA/WB done if needed.

Happy New Year to everyone. Hope you drive many more miles in 2018!

Apart from a couple of longish trips early in the year, the dwarf has only been doing a few day trips in and around Bangalore over the lat few months. Odo stands at 38.5K kms and I should be taking it in for the 40K service by the end of this month. I haven't visited MASS in a long time as no new problem/niggle has cropped up. FE has been steady at the 14-14.5 kmpl mark with the only difference being the ease with which the dwarf hits tripple digit speeds on 4/6L highways. Not saying that its a scorcher but over the last few months, I feel the dwarf has opened up a bit more and its jut that teeny weeny bit faster to get to the 100 mark. Maybe its the new modulators that are making this possible.

A couple of collages to remember 2017
