A lot of your issues seem to be because it’s a new bike. No visible fluid in the reservoir is ridiculous to say the least, have you checked properly? It seems the pre-delivery inspection has not been done efficiently.

Please take it immediately to the service centre, let them know your issues and have them take a look at the bike thoroughly, especially the brake reservoir/fluid.

Do update on how things go.

Cheers

Congrats on the bike.

To answer your questions:
1> The clutch pull is a bit hard but it depends on what you're used to. From what I remember, it's definitely not as light as a 150 but it's easier than RE clutches. As for gear shifts, going from 1 to 2 and back smoothly is an issue on quite a few bikes. It might go away, but if you can make it a habit to shift from 1 to neutral and then to 2 and vice versa, it becomes a subconscious thing after sometime and you'd barely notice it. But first, ride a couple other Yezdis to see if this is only on your bike or not. If it is only on your bike, get it checked out by the company.

2> If the brake is working well, then there HAS to be fluid in the reservoir. It may not be apparent through the sight glass if the fluid used is colourless. If you're up to the task, just open up the brake reservoir and inspect it yourself. Be careful about spilling the fluid when you lift the gasket though. Brake fluid causes paint bubbling and accelerates rust formation. Keep a rag handy to wipe any drips.

3> Get it checked out at SVC.

Re: Yezdi Motorcycle Brand relaunched with Adventure, Scrambler & Roadster models

Recently test rode all 3 of the Yezdi bikes, here are some of my observations.
Some context- I am a tall guy (6'2) and have a Himalayan that I have ridden a lot in the kind of terrain it was designed for.
Scrambler
- The chassis is very sorted, and it's a flick-able bike, the only problem for tall people is that it will start hurting the bottom of your palms because of the weird handlebar positioning. I get that it's made for being ridden while standing up, but that's often a tiny portion of the ride.

- Clutch is very finicky, and you get a very KTM-esque feel while riding it, it's not very forgiving or has a considerable margin for error. I loved it for the short time I rode it, but I can see it becoming a problem on any long ride.

Adventure
- Loved the Odometer placement, and didn't like almost everything else. Granted I might be biased while writing this, but the suspension is not as good as Himalayan's, the engine seems dead at the low end (which will be a problem if you're off the beaten path) and the seating position felt a bit like Himalayan seating position, just tilted a bit backward.

Roadster

Honestly, the most sorted of the bunch. Has a good seating position, rides well, and has a decent response from the engine. Yet couldn't justify it for the price point.

Some common points for all the bikes
- The bikes don't seem trouble-free, scrambler died on me during the ride and just wouldn't start for a long time.
- The fit and finish are not good, left-hand button cluster was very loose on all the bikes)
- Ergonomics are not that good, I had to always do a weird twist in my wrist to access the indicator
- ODO feels very aftermarket

I am used to a Honda Aviator from the last 7-8 years so no clue there. The test ride bike did have a slightly easier clutch and that had covered some 3000 odd kms so it's safe to assume that it's because of the newness and will lighten up with time or can be adjusted during services.

2> Regarding the brake fluid, I read that sometimes the fluid is in the brake lines but not in the reservoir so it might need a top up in that case. I don't have any experience working on bikes so I'm definitely not gonna open up anything anytime soon. Maybe I'll check once again in daylight or after riding for a while.

3> will definitely take up the suspension squealing noise during first service as it is scheduled in the next 10
15 days and my usage is anyway very less.

Thanks for the responses.

Got some time to take the Yezdi for a long ride (was visiting my native for chhatt). Start odo was about 3700 kms and ended at 7785 kms. The 4k odd kilometers spread over some good highway tarmac, breaker infested signals, some broken roads and no roads, from Deccan to Malwa, across Vindhyas to Gangetic plains and back. Temperature ranged between 35c to 17c. The route taken was:

Pune -> Indore -> Guna -> Shivpuri -> Jhansi -> Kanpur -> Lucknow -> Gorakhpur -> Darbhanga -> Chhapra -> Aarra -> Varanasi -> Rewa -> Jabalpur -> Bhedaghat -> Pench -> Nagpur -> Amravati -> Jalna -> Aurangabad -> Pune


I had a Himalayan rider as company. We did Pune to Biaora (near Guna), some 820+ kms on day1 and averaged about 500-600kms on rest of the days, dawn to dusk. We cruised between 90-110 kmph mostly, with occasional busts of 120s on my Yezdi. Himalayan had a "oil temperature sensor" with check engine light issue near Arrah, probably due to sustained high-speed catching up with Yezdi. Luckily it was not a big issue as engine was still firing and we continued cautiously up to Mohania where a RE service centre scanned the issue and assured it won't damage as oil flow was okay. The part was finally replaced at a dealer in Varanasi. Both RE service centres gave us a good support .

My Yezdi ran flawlessly without any such drama, just the fork gaiters (rubber sleeve to protect from dust) were cracked by the time we reached Pench on return journey. I can understand this because we didn't slow down for any pot holes or off/no roads :-) .

Both bikes needed a couple of chain tightening and lubing on the road and returned about 32-33 kmpl on the trip. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed the trip and how Yezdi managed to cover the distances .

Here are some pictures from the ride.

Sorry for the late revert. This slipped my attention.

1. Yes clutch is hard (harder than my FatBoy) and 1-2 gear shift is notchy. Have gotten used to it now. Keep maintaining the foot pressure when you shift (needs some practice) and it will slot alright.

2. New bike fluid is nearly transparent, look carefully. Also, when the bike is tilted on side-stand the fluid (if low) can be hard to see at glass.

3. Looks unusual, maybe brake dust or something. Should go away after a quick wash and lubing.

Cheers,

Re: Yezdi Motorcycle Brand relaunched with Adventure, Scrambler & Roadster models

Owners take on Yezdi Scrambler.

I liked the design language of the Yezdi scambler from the day it was launched. The tall stance, dual exhaust (ironic), and comfortable ride position. There were other good better bikes in the market and I compared it with other bikes like the KTM 250 Adv, honda 300, or TVS 310. Second an emotional decision to bring back home a yezdi. So in September 2022 I brought home, the Yezdi scrambler ignoring a lot of minor issues that got highlighted in the blogs, forums and youtube. After running it for 3000 kms mostly on the highway following are my observations.

Cons
1. Heavy clutch- may be the engineers wanted to teach the riders clutchless riding. If you keep the revs in check you can seamlessly upshift and downshift without the clutch. But in bumper-to-bumper traffic the heavy clutch is a pain
2. Noisy engine - When the engine is cold and is reved, this motor is nosiy, However, once it's warm you can only hear the exhaust note.
3. Tyre - It's difficult at some petrol pumps to get air in the rear tyre.

Above were the only cons i faced. Following are the pros.

1. Very comfortable to ride on the highway you can cruise without any problem between 90 to 120 KMPH.
2. Is very planted on the highway, but plan your overtake on the highway
3. It is amazing on offroad section. I would say have fun with this machine on offroad. But remember to change the mode to offroad as I would have fallen of the bike downhill as ABS left the break when I needed it the most.

Suggestions for Yezdi on accessories
1. You cannot clean the headlight wwith the grill installed. Very bad design
2. Tthe handlebar weights need to be changed as they make the handle bar heavy
3. Paint issues - I had to get my tank replaced just after i got the bike.
4. Few owners that i know faced battery issues
