    Just go back few pages, I remember someone posting the availability of parts at their nearest ASC; not sure who it is, but somewhere from North.

Now, does Chennai have 30 degree even in Winter? I don't think so; this is one of the reason why I hesitate to switch from 20W-40.
    As far as I know, if XXwYY is the viscosity grade of an engine oil, then
    XX - Viscosity at 0 degree C
    YY - Viscosity at 100 degree C

    Let us compare 10w30 and 20w40 oils
    At 0 degree C, the 10w30 is less viscous (less thick) as compared to 20w40
    At 100 degree C, the 10w30 is less viscous (less thick) as compared to 20w40

    As a result, at lower temperature, 10w30 gives lower starting problems, whereas at higher temperatures, it is too runny to perform the function of lubrication of metal parts and heat conduction away from engine.

    Compared to this, the 20w40 is thicker at start up (though as aargee correctly said, the lowest annual temperatures in places like Pune and Chennai are too high to worry about oil freezing in sump). Also, it performs better at higher temperatures than 10w30, due to its having higher viscosity then 10w30 at 100 degrees C. Hence, it might be a better choice over the 10w30 in hotter places.

    Sunkenpirate - Buy all your points & word by word they're true; my point is same as yours - "due to its having higher viscosity then 10w30 at 100 degrees C. Hence, it might be a better choice over the 10w30 in hotter places"

    This is the reason I'm sticking with 20W-40, though I love to experiement with 10W-30 sometimes. But the very thought of this viscosity etc are quite disturbing. So I want to stay away from it.

    Default LED tail light

    Just wanted to share. It even meets the purpose of indicator lights too, I would share its video soon cuz the blinking could not be well captured by cam.

    Low

    High

    Your bike is way better than babes,only thing is that you need a proper vision to mull over this fact. :D

    Looks good Pravu. How much did that cost?
    Why do you still have the indicators now?

    Think , think and think. I have kept it by purport only so that the internal wiring gets prevented from water sipping in etc. Moreover, there is a sensor at the back which is kind of camouflaged. Very few people know this.

    Couldn't get this part

    Purpose?

    I also see 250R sticker on the side panels; how did you even do that? It seems to be good at that location.
