    Lol.
    That's rather strange.
    I spoke to a lady there n told her I will pay full amount as a lump sum in cash if she delivers the 650 in a week or two.
    She politely denied n maintained the 120 days condition
    Hence decided to book it in monsoon instead

    Whoa, i mean 20 days instead of 45 days for N300r, and she said it wont take 90 days, it would take 60-65 days for the N650r.
    And i guess its a good idea to book in monsoons, as the rains will be almost over when u get the beast.

    You are the one whose comments I use to read every single day.. I thruly respect you.. Agree with whatever you said.. But just top speed issue I clocked 140 kmph on my 2012 Avy 220....She is maska to ride in speeds of 100-110 kph.. But she dose heats up in city..

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    I just changed my oil from Castrol Power 1 to Motul 3100.. Bike seems loving it.. Pick up Increased, Butter smooth gear shifting.. But she is heating more than normal, even after 10 kms riding I can feel steams from engine.. Kindly suggest... P.S. I am using Avy 220

    140kmph on 2012 Avenger is neat... i know a few fellow 220 owners who comfortably go above & beyond 100kmph on it.

    mine is a 200cc & pretty old now... i.m.h.o. the engine vibes above 80kmph are unruly & i feel that its unfair to stress the bike beyond that for fear of dear life.

    as for ur bike heating up - guess u need to get her checked @ a pro-biking service to ensure that the radiator is working as expected & that ur air filter is clean & healthy.

    so long as the viscosity of the oil is matching the one that's recommended, it really should not matter what brand one uses.

    changing from mineral oil to synthetic or viceversa seems to impact the smoothness but that is only a matter of perception.

    some people swear by castrol & others by motul & even some others by mobil.

    really doesnt matter...

    yes, but do use a good brand of chain cleaner & chain lube to periodically clean & lube ur chain - that will make it ride even smoother. as far as possible use a dry-grease [wurth / 3m / etc.] - motul lubes are, to my mind, too watery & are dust-magnets!
