    Attachment 104971 @ashwin i couldnt remove the 12mm bolts they were just too hard to open by spanner .
    Using a pointed drift(even a nail will do), hit the pin very hard.

    Arrow shows the correct direction.

    (12mm bolts can be removed only by a socket/long box wrench as they have thread lock applied) To clean the pads,removing the pin is enough. For everything else

    My Hunk's first service is due(completed 600+km) and I am planning to get it done during this week. I need your inputs on following points.
    Any other point that I need to keep in mind during service?
    Thanks in Advance.
    Don't let them tighten the chain too much. Make sure a slack of 1 to 1.5 inch is maintained.

    Tools needed
    1. #12 socket
    2. #5 allen key
    3. #8 T-spanner

    Consumables
    1.Silicon grease
    2.Detergent and scotch brite.

    There are two ways to clean the brakes-1. By removing the caliper from mounts or 2. Just by removing the pads.
    However I am showing by removing the caliper from mounts.

    STEP 1: Remove this rubber cover/cap of pad retaining bolt.

    On a straight road with no traffic, speed upto 45kmph, pull the clutch and leave the accelerator.
    Can you feel any kind of vibration at handle bars and foot pegs ?

    Please check the chain slack at the tightest link of the chain.
    The slack should be 1 and a half inch (1.5") Anything less than that - the gears will not slot properly and the bike vibrates even when coasting with the clutch pulled in.
    This isn't a splendor where one can tighten

    Except for the Engine Oil Change, these are the maximum costs he has quoted. He estimates the bill to amount to Rs. 4,000. Are these costs reasonable or am I being ripped off?
