Hi AMVJ,
I had taken the CB to a speedo indicated 106 in the 3rd gear. The engine was at 10k rpm. I had kept it at this speed for a couple of minutes before running out of the road.
I didn't feel anything different in terms of vibrations.

In fact, initially, I had noticed a slight buzz in the seat after around 8000 rpm. I had reported that in my short review. I don't feel it anymore.

Maybe give the update some more time, and add more km. It might get fixed.
And this can be used as an excuse to take the bike out this weekend, weather permitting

I went for a solo short ride today. My original plan was to go to Murugan idly shop, but thinking about the rush and time, I went to another hotel before that. I went via Bagalur, Berigai, Shoolagiri route and returned via the highway. Bagalur, Berigai, Shoolagiri route is scenic but a lot of unmarked speed breakers. I was only able to do <60 kmph for most of the time. It is the best route for those who are having new vehicles and in running-in period.

This is the first time I am riding via Bagalur, Berigai route. There are couple of hair pin bends too.

It is annoying that almost every hotel in TN is called Saravana Bhavan. They should be creative and come with new names.
Similarly, in KA, they overuse the Udupi name for hotels.

My bike is still new and only covered 1000kms. I'm getting a mileage of 30-32kmpl as per the meter, and this is purely city rides.

Anybody can recommend me a good saddle bag (with pillion seating) that is compatible without saddle stay?

And also, any suitable and reasonably priced visor for the 2022 model?

The Odometer on my bike is currently at 2200km. The MID on my bike shows 37 - 38 kmpl now (highway / city mixed riding).
Dduring the running-in period, it showed 40.5 kmpl where I keep it below 80kmph.

Most of the rides I have done are less than 4hrs with breaks in between and I find the seats are comfortable for those journeys. I have not done any longer rides yet.

No idea man. May be others can pitch in on this.

Solo Saturday breakfast ride.

It's raining almost every day in Bangalore. It is a welcome relief from rain for a few hours today morning. I have gone via Sarjapur, Kagganur, Hosur etc. Till Hosur, the road is traffic free, but also there are no shops till Hosur main road. There are many brick factories on the way.

I traveled via this route and returned via the highway.

Southern Sambar Veg - another weirdly named restaurant. Breakfast is a typical TN affair and the Sambar is much better than the one in KA which is just too bad in my humble opinion.

Mileage update for those who are looking for more info on this (all MID information. Tankful-to-tankful method may vary little bit).

On TN interiors (Speed <60kmph): 39.6 kmpl

Highway ride (Speed <100kmph): 39.5 kmpl

Attibelle to home on a relatively congested / bad roads: 40.0kmpl
2022 Honda CB300R Review-20220806_1017341.jpg

In the city traffic I see around 37-38 kmpl in the MID.

First puncture

While filling the air in the petrol station the guy identified a small nail in the rear tyre. He had a puncture strip, but it was dried too much. Thankfully, I was carrying a puncture repair kit and it was put into use.

My apartment now has two interceptors and the Chrome one pulls my heart strings every time I see it. However, today I don't regret it and the remote places I venture, tube tyres are a real pain.

These are really nice FE figures. What are the tankful to tankful figures?

This independence day was a bit of a discovery and shock for me. As I carried out the routine cleaning and chain lubrication, I discovered that one of the Engine bolts was missing on the bike and the front mudguard was partially broken. The front mudguard issue could be due to the kids in our apartment, but I am not sure. However, what concerned was the engine bolt. I don't know how it was missing.

I suspect the Engine crash guard fitment trial at Gear Gear Motorcycles might have caused this, but I am not sure.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motor...ml#post5325888 (2022 Honda CB300R Review)

I contacted the Honda Big Wing service and to my disappointed they don't have it. They also mentioned that they can place orders only on Monday and Friday. Since Monday has been passed, they promised me that they will place the order on Friday.

So I went to Gear Gear Motorcycles (Near BikenBiker, Bangalore) and mentioned the same whether they have anything spare or not. These guys service and accessorize litre class bikes and thankfully they had one. I am not sure whether it is same or not, but for the time being it gives me some peace of mind.

At Gear Gear Motorcycles

The cost of the Engine bolt is only 85Rs while the mudguard is around 1.8K but Honda Bigwing really need to tidy their logistics. I have not cancelled the Engine bolt and mudguard, lets see how long Honda takes to bring the spares.

Some photos taken during the cleanup and chain lube.
Diesel was used to clean the chain and I find it very good.

Before cleanup

Twice the application of diesel, cleaning brush, towel and elbow grease. Something I am proud of:

I highly recommend covering the floor with some disposable item. Chain cleaning and lubing are really messy.

I was following AMVJ's posts and was suprised to see the mileage update!

Today, I was finally able to go for a highway ride after my bike's first service. I had a company, a Standard 350. The ride was peaceful and we travelled to Murugan Idli Shop in Krishnagiri and then to KRP Dam.

I managed to take a picture of the console showing average mileage after 100KMs:

Also, posting few pictures from the ride:

Awesome. Please post some more photos of your bike. This whole thread, mostly contains Black CB300R photos only. By the way, I find 104km and the completion of first service appears that you are riding very less.

Edit: Install a screen scratch guard otherwise, the keychain will scratch it very quickly.

Oh yes! I will try to post more.

104kms is Trip B. I had reset it for the trip today. Today's trip was 235kms in total with a average mileage of 43.5kmpl. I'm so happy seeing the number (even though tank-to-tank could vary) as my previous bike used to give below 20kmpl. My total ODO crossed 1400kms.

I did buy the screen guard that you had posted. I had mentioned this earlier - my console has a small glass crack which the BigWing people and me did not notice during delivery. I'm getting a replacement but no spares at the moment. I'm still waiting for it so that I can install the guard. These scratches you see are normal wear and tear, even though I take really good care of it. Complained this to the company multiple times. They had removed all the protective plastics from lights and ODO before delivery, so it had multiple micro scratches already.

Bikenbiker now has SW-Motech crash guard for CB300R. It's pricey at 16K but the BS4 CB300R owners swear by it. Here is a photo of the bike with crash guard from 2022 BS6 CB300R WhatsApp group.
