I am planning to go ahead to Shell ultra FS on next oil change with FZ oil filter. or probably should I go with shell HEDO treatment , need your thoughts on it.
    I have few questions
    > there is oil leakage on the engine head cover and its covered with oil quite well , i have checked the oil level for 500 kms its didnt decrease , will the head gasket replacement fix it or something to worry about ?
    > when i slamm front disc @80kmph , i feel the front end drops very stiffly and i have feeling its pulling one side , even during the turings the handle bar is not holding correctly, i can feel something wrong in the cone alignment . should we need to inspect the cone set, ball bearings and free flow of the handle bar left and right.

    only these 2 things are haunting me, else apart from that its an unbelievable and amazing machine, i feel like glazing over the air @ 100kmph and its one of the best experience i am getting on this state of art machine.there is no shim,valve,chain tensioner noise from the engine bay. few screeching noise from the left side fairing ,will inspect for any fittings on next service.
    once again thanks Shivang and psr sir, without this thread i wouldn't have got this beast and i am so happy and learning from this bible like Ekalavya
    Congrats on your Bike . Did you find from the previous owner regarding the head oil leak ? as to from when it had started ?
    That said if the oil level is not coming down and engine is good , there will not be much to worry. Please try to get a clear picture of the leak and post it here so that we can get a clear idea..It could be gasket, or it may also be the head nuts becoming slightly loose due to use( though rare).
    Try to use the Shell Rimula for the next 4,000 Kms or at least two changes to ensure a cleaner inside which will reduce vibrations and difficult gear shifts...You would have seen how SHV18 had to use it multiple time to get a cleaner engine ,since the previous owner had not been good at maintenance...Of course now he uses it for upto 3K + since it is doing quite well in his engine.. Shv 18 will be able to give a better perspective .
    Good Luck

    psr ji Vanakkam, thanks for youre time on helping me.sure I will go with rimula on next oil change and this weekend going to buy wire and battery clips for the earth wire mod & sae 40 for chain lube.and regarding the oil leak I am attaching the pictures of engine head cover from both sides.Please have a look and let me know.
    Sir, i am staying in Hosur Tamilnadu, and everyday commuting to electronic city around 50 km up and down.
    enjoying the ride and trying to practice rev-matching while downshifting , buts i am not able to do it properly , i need more time to learn it.
    Regarding the cone-set steering issue, i lifted towards a side with side stand and checked the handle by moving either side, it was freely moving both sides without any jerk or tight. I aslo checked the second way, hold the front disc and shaked the bike front and back , i am not able to find any jerk or movement on the clip ons.
    but still i get weird feeling when turning towards right side, its not smooth turning its gives me jerks and pulls aside.not sure why i am feeling heavy at front. or its that i am not used to this heavier bikes since i am coming from pulsar.

    thanks

    Looks like Your top head gasket is leaking, ...so it is not a complicated fix....ASC or mech must open the top head and then change the gasket. It is better done with ASC, and you can run with it without issue as long as the oil level is maintained....you can also try tightening the head bolts a little to see if it had worked loose due to vibration over a period of time..
    When the steering stem balls bite into the racers, due to tight fixing , or due to running through pot holes regularly,it forms small dimples which will restrict and make steering notchy and sometimes wavy handling through a curve. So try changing the stem (cone set) bearing with the holding racers first..change the fork oil in both forks and fill ONLY upto recommended level.
    Good Luck.

    Hi buddy,
    my sincere apologies... have been caught up with personal life and commitments so not been able to check out nor update this thread... a long post is due.

    I believe @psr sir has already covered a lot of details pertaining to solving issues related to your new vehicle.

    Coming back to the issues you have mentioned, here are my observations:

    1) The oil leak, the indication is clear that the top head cover rubber gasket is leaking. It is a simple fix, i believe i have shared the picture and the cost of the part along with the part no. somewhere in one of the posts on this thread. Changing/replacing the same will stop the leakage for good.

    2) I believe it has been mentioned on this thread that once in two years or about 15,000 kms one should ideally take out the old fork oil, get the innards of the front fork cleaned and fresh oil should be poured in. This will drastically improve the handling and fork dive by a greater margin. Though bear in mind: stock fork set up is designed to be bit on the softer side which aids in better bump absorption on our moon cratered roads.

    3) If the handlebar is veering towards one direction than one of the possibilities - steering head coneset is on its way out. The whole OEM unit will cost approx 2300-3000 (inclusive of labour cost at SVC). I would also recommend inspecting the front tire bearings and the front tire itself for uneven wear.

    Hope this helps..

    Cheers,

    I believe Mr.Ram had explicitly said " Your fan relay is faulty, replace that and issue will be resolved. Do it sooner else disconnect the battery to stop the fan running " which means FAN RELAY IS FAULTY and NOT THE FAN. Please read all of the words clearly and understand to prevent Confusion.
