    Thanks for reply bro because bro in the second service there is some sound coming from my bike engine head like tappet sound after engine heat but the service center guys told me that the sound is not from the tappet so they change the engine head block kit, piston and crank shaft. after that the issue resolved of the engine noise but the vibration issue occurred after that. i rase the issue because till the second service there is no vibration even i run the bike at 100 kmph. so any solution for that bro

    Thanks.
    TVS svc has screwed your bike. It's a very smooth bike.

    Thanks.
    Engine oil won't stop all your problems. And since you have recently got the engine parts replaced, your engine is like new and will be hot and noisy for some time.

    My suggestion would be try running your motorcycle as one does during break-in-period (1000-2000 kms), then do an oil change and see if vibrations has gone. Imo your issue may be due to new parts.
    Still I am confused why your motorcycle needed parts change at 780 kms

    Btw were parts, changed under warranty or you were charged? Also if your issue is not solved then I would suggest to mail TVS or check on other svc.

    Don't rev or drive at high rpm, let parts settle, also change oil at intervals, for info check your motorcycle's maintenance schedule.
    Regarding oil, since you have completed 2500-3000 kms since parts were change then use either company oil or use semi-synthetic oil be it Castrol Power 10w40 or Shell AX7.

    Thanks a lot bro for reply there is a tik tik sound coming from my bike engine heat after the engine heat so i checked with the service center those guys told me that the sound is not from the tappet so that is the reason he replace the part now the engine sound is gone totally even i run the bike at 100 kmph with pillion
    and yes all the parts are changed under warranty i did not pay anything for that.

    and i already escalate an email to TVS now for the i receive the call from tvs today so i took my bike to SVC now i feel vibration with pillion after 4000 rpm a little bit and alone it is fine till 7000 RPM after that i feel a vibration little is it fine?

    and also bro tomorrow i need to go to out of town around 200 km did i go with the bike is it ok for the bike?
    and if yes how much RPM should i maintain on 5th gear and how much speed i can run continuously and how much long?
