    Hi Tabrez,

    I too faced the same problem when i purchased my Honda shine in 2013. Now the problem is resolved and i am getting a mileage of 58-60km per litre in city driving.. Gear shift problem is usually faced by all honda shine users, there will be falseplay when you shift the gears from 3-2 or 2-1. and regarding the other problems you mentioned like chain noise and vibration, its also a common problem which was faced by me. Now coming to the answer

    1. The false play or gear slipping occurs due to the false adjustment of the spring inside the gear box. I complained about this every time when i go to service centre during the first few months of my purchase, make sure u force them to do it as most of service centers just water wash the bike and say they have done the service.. Now my problem got resolved.
    2. The vibration feeling that u get is usually when u touch the 50km/hr mark in your speedometer. once you cross that 50km barrier the vibration will automatically reduce, thats how they have designed it to get more economy out of the vehicle.
    3. If you read the manual, the break in period of the bike is 500km, i suggest you to avoid using honda oil which heats up the engine, breaks down eaily and reduces the mileage. I suggest you using Shell 10W 40 ultra advance costing around Rs.750 which will improve the mileage and reduce engine heat.
    4. go to a good mechanic who has knowledge on chain slack adjustment..if you drive with pillion make sure you adjust the chain by seating a person at the back..
    5. If u have crossed 10000 kms , try using iridium spark plug from NGK..it will improve the torque and avoids cold starts.

    Try following these and u will see the improvement in your engine within a week.

    I always used Shell-Super petrol to keep the engine out of any contamination and get more mileage.


    I have Gear shift problem with my bike
    Its not comfortable at all. Shift from 1st to 2nd gear is very hard. Driving in traffic requires frequent gear shifts.
    0-5 Km/h --> 1 Gear
    Reached 5-8 Km/h --> Shift to 2 Gear (Pulling little bit more in 1st gear makes engine screaming and bike stalls at the spot)
    Reached 12-15 Km/h --> Shift to 3 Gear
    Reached 25-30 Km/h --> Shift to 4 Gear

    This creates lots of inconvenience while driving in traffic


    If gear is not shifted withing the above specified speed range, it either SLIPS during downshifting or STUCK during up-shifting.
    Also change in gear not happens in one push of pedals. I have to push long way down and shift happens with 2 clicks... Kit...Kit...
    If I am not pushing it hard and leaving the clutch after 1st click..... gear is getting stuck between middle of two position and engine is making weird wwwwhhhhhhhiiiirrrr........... sound. To recover from this situation.. only option is to switch off the engine and put gear to neutral in off condition (by dragging bike to and fro) and then start-over again.

    There are other problems also in bike (vibration, chain noise etc) but this is very serious and makes bike unsafe to drive.
    After so many complaint and fight with dealer, they changed the Gear shaft. But problem still exist.
    I don\\\'t want to go back to their service center as they will ruin my bike doing trail & error.

    I heard that gear shift problem is common in Shine but don\\\'t know the exact issues. If Honda is aware about this weird problem,
    why they are selling this product.

    If anyone know any Information, workaround or solution regarding this please help me.

    Hello all

    i have been using honda shine 2012 model, since 4-5 month back it was running in good conditions, as i have been servicing it at honda workshop, but i am getting noise which is earlier not coming, after changing engine oil ( thought it may be solve issue) still problem persist, issue came after when bike was serviced by private mechanic ( he has tuned tensioner coz he told that timing chain is loose and right now tuning will do the job no need of replacement), since that time noise is coming and even though to identify exact problem i have shown it to different mechanic and they told noise of timing chain

    so please suggest me a best solution for this... as this weird sound is irritating me......


    expecting an effective solution from experts.
