    Engine rebuild, crashed twice. I am giving a green, as long as the motorcycle chassis is in good shape, and the crash was just a minor one. Secondly, an engine rebuild is nothing to worry about, as long as the rebuild itself was done properly, and the bike itself is performing great. Do give heed to look into your chain sprocket, brake pad, and coneset bearing, as these do wear exceptionally fast.

    It's a Yamaha, it will serve till Jesus comes! Just give it the love and care it deserves, by maintaining a periodic service chart, and this will clock more than 1.5 lakh KMS happily with the same charm. R15 eyes closed is, was, and will forever be a fantastic machine to ride and own.

    Good luck.

    I am looking to buy an R15 V2 2011 model. It has clocked 40k kms and has had a engine rebuild recently. The motorcycle was involved in a crash and post that it was repaired and used without a fairing for 800kms. I rode the bike today and the everything feels really smooth in it. What all should i look for before buying the bike ? I would also like to know how much would it cost to for the front fairing and headlight assembly.

    I personally do not think it'd be wise to buy this motorcycle due to following reasons:-

    1. A yamaha if given adequate maintenance do not need an engine rebuild within 40000kms. Mine has clocked 46k kms and still it's pretty good with a basic maintenance. Japenese make really solid bike unless the rider is nuts and hell bent to choke it.
    2. I believe you don't know what all has been change in rebuild, so there are chances that there are still some worn out parts inside which may require replacement in near future.
    3. Fairing will cost you a good amount of money.

    Overall prima facie it doesn't look like a very good bike and in my opinion you should look for some other bike..

    My friend has recently installed tank grips on his V2, the feedback is really good, he has also made a DIY video on how to install the same. Below is the link...

    I checked with one of the dealer's in Pune, waiting time is now 60 days & might be extended due to continous heavy booking. On road price is 1.19L..

    Quantity remains the same. Slight differences are usually fine in most cases.

    These are very expensive and delicate parts. Hope you have somehow fixed everything and the bike runs.

    I am using the nighteye LED from aliexpress. Using it on my V1 for past 2 years.
    Haven't faced any issue yet.
    Both beams work on low as well as high beam.
    There is a flicker in idle, otherwise it's doing it's job.
    Ordered it after talking to Saikat , he helped me in installing them.
    Battery is 5amp 3years old. RR unit is the stock one.

    Hope this helps.

    May be: i) battery is old and not holding charge, or ii) RR unit is not charging when hot (in traffic), or iii) the headlight itself is drawing more than 25w.

    Buy, H4 & 50W (25Wx2) only.
    Not sure, you will get the aliexpress items in India because the customs clearance procedure is strict now. But, in amazon it is available in slightly higher cost.
    They will not affect battery, I am running them on Exide stock battery for approx 3 years.
