  • R15 V2 Engine Light Issue (Bike Stops)

    Hello Everyone

    I don't know much about bikes, hence you can consider me as noob.

    I have an R15 V2, been riding it for 4 years now. My daily commute is approx 40 Kms.

    I do regular oil change and maintenance.

    For some time now, the engine light glows up and stays on, the engine gets extremely stressed and then stops (gives a couple of jerk while doing so).

    Can anyone advice why this is happening and what needs to be done. I don't want to go to Yamaha SVC as they literally rob.

    Also can you pleases suggest a good oil too ? The grade I believe is 15W50 I guess. Any suggestion ?

    Total KMS on the bike is approx 28K.

    Would appreciate some expert advice on this as I need to get this fix in a day or 2 because I need it for my work commute.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit : I did and oil and coolant change,Chain clean and lube too . the bike stopped twice during pick up throughout the day. engine feels Stressed, and engine light only stayed on for not more than 5-7 seconds.
