    Default Hornet 160R 2018, engine over heating

    Hi Guys,

    My bike, Honda Hornet 160 ABS is new. 800kms and first service done.

    Engine is overheating and gear shifting is very hard and I am also getting false neutrals.

    Can you please help me?

    Check the clutch lever
    Is it too loose?

    Not too losse but loose, and also getting burnt smell from engine, gears are also getting struck when shifting from 2-3 or 3-4 and making noise, First service done and still no resolution.

    Did the mechanic adjust your carburetor. He must've changed the factory settings.

    Tell the mechanic to change your carburetor settings to factory settings, this will solve the problem.
