    ???????? what to do guys.....

    I figured out that its due to air filter. Just change your air filter and the bike will run fine.

    I had the same problem with my Yamaha SZ-R. It has been solved by changing the air filter. And clean the carburetor also if required.

    I did not know there has been so much controversies over my YouTube video

    The guy who made that air filter washing video is ME. (Please don't kill me for that )

    I totally know no manufacturer recommends the practice (except JCB & some heavy machinery), hence I had my Disclaimer in that video.

    I have run my Gladiator (SS 125) over 73,000 kms now with the stock engine block & stock chain set( not kidding), and still wash (wash + wind blast + dry) my air filter at every 2000 kms & replace them at every 10,000 kms. Things are working just fine and i still hit 100+ when ever I wish and try to.

    I have replaced spark plug & air filter at every 10,000 kms intervals right from the beginning.

    Oil is something that I have experimented with a lot and learnt lessons the hard way (without seizing the engine though )

    > Castrol SS - Clutch slippage & gets rough by 1500 kms
    > Shell AX7 - Evaporates like crazy ( hence the engine ran without oil (extremely low oil level) as I didn't check the oil level during a long trip. Resulted in engine noise. The engine used to be butter smooth and hell silent before that trip.)

    Best bet - Yamalube mineral & SS ( Only the black bottle with red cap ones). Neither does the oil level drop nor does the engine feel "too" smooth. It behaves natural like how a Gladiator engine is supposed to behave.

    Still happy with my decision of buying and maintaining my Gladiator (my way). Its still a charm to ride.
