    Tried spitting test and water drop test on engine head. It doesn't feel like bouncing back, but evaporates in a second. Hope that it is not a problem...

    Idle RPM increases to 1500 from 1100 after 45 minutes run. Is it a problem ?

    I hope that the air fuel ratio was too lean. The engine was so harsh after a long high speed run. It was rough idling at 1500 RPM. The engine was heated more than in normal days. Oil level decreased in two days run. Half rotation of the fuel screw in anticlockwise direction made a good change. The engine is smooth while running and idling stays at 1100 RPM after a long high speed run at night. But at day time it roughens a bit because of the increased air temperature. All this mess started after the adjustments done by the service person in second service.

    As i have changed to motul 5100 semi synthetic oil, i tried setting the AFR towards slightly lean mixture. I turned the fuel screw a quarter in clockwise direction.
    It doesn't tend to heat like before and it feels that the engine has become little smoother. The sound from the engine (from rocker arm or cam lobe) has lessened and produces a really cute "trrrrr" sound while in 90's. That sound and smoothness was i looking for without overheating the engine. When i move to fully synthetic in next oil change will try some more .
