    Just to confirm.


    The old gen RC and RS200 uses same brake pads, so this SINTERED pads will be a direct fit right? Any issues?

    As, long as the calipers aren't changed in any significant way which, in our case it isn't the pads can be swappable, provided they're of the same calipers and pad measurements are the same. Sintered pads are just the way the pad material, is fused in. Organic and sintered, formed using heat and pressure. And, BTW, old gen RC and RS 200 use the same brake pads, I guess it's for the rear, I presume?

    Cheers!

    Be happy as long as the fan runs. Don't expect miracles from engine ice in our weather/temperature/traffic conditions.
    As the other user pointed out, a fan upgrade to the spal unit might improve the cooling a bit. Since late 2014, the dukes came with the fan shroud which deflected some heat away from the riders legs but at the same time restricted the air flow.

    Short summary :
    1. Never use a cheap / local brand Dashboard polish as it will hard the plastics of bike in long term use.
    A good brand like 3M / MotoMax / Formula 1 costs almost same to these cheap dashboard polish. Get those.

    Get the spray type, spray it and rub it using a soft & washed-clean cotton cloth or microfibres cloth or a soft & clean sponge.

    2. Wax on a surface in open area?
    This guy has no clue what is wax actually.
    Same as he's got no idea the 3M Wax he's using is probably not genuine.

    Wax is a sealant. It's used after rubbing, claying & polishing to seat the polish. Wax is a layer on the surface, doing it in open area means locking any dust or dirt particle between bike body and wax that would come during the process. Always do wax in an clean and closed place.

    Also, Never use hands to apply it. It's not a body moisturiser.

    you can, but i'd advice put in a relay (hardly any extra work) and have a peace of mind.

    I'm using dual horns from 2 months now.
    Pawan from this group gave me his horn as he's using the Minda horn.

    I was lazy to put Relay and now I keep forgetting.
    It's works fine, and super loud. Like hella dual-tone.

    Okay so confirmed by my svc :

    1. The clutch lever and brake lever of 2017 model is direct fit in older models.

    They've have the clutch lever in stock for now, Costs around 350-370₹.

    2. Most probably the sintered pads are direct fit too. Someone from here remind me in 4-5 days and I will confirm.

    if you do change 'em, do let us know how it goes (does it require you to buy the yoke also or just the lever?)
