I can have the wheel alignment checked but that could be the cause for vibrations but not engine uneasiness.

    Is this normal with Electra/standards? I had T-bird (2003) and classic 500 (2013) and both didn't have this issue IIRC. Thanks.

    Just out of curiosity, is the silencer of the bike in concern, Not Stock?

    It is stock. Earlier I had the long bottle stock then at ~4K kms changed it to short bottle stock.

    The mixture might be too lean. unless there is any unusual mechanical noise made at that speed. what did the service centre/mechanic had to say about this?

    Well, i did discuss with few other folks at RE service center and they were of the opinion that this speed limit is the limitation of standards. I mean 350 standards will go up to max 80ish without engine feeling stressed and 500s till 90ish.. So anyway, I serviced by bike (oil change - this time motul), air filter change and cleaned chain myself with motul c1/c2 cleaner/lube. And then I kind of did "running in" of the bike above 70. I mean I took the bike on short bursts up to 75 and then 80 repeating over many days even though the engine felt under stress. So after a few weeks and 200+ kms, 80 is the new 70, i.e. the bike's engine feels comfortable at 80 like it used to at 70. It is at 85kmph or more that the bike's engine feels stressed. It's weird that the bike now at 9500kms feels like a proper run-in bike and feels smooth when driven till about 85kmph.

Because the nearby local mechs are even afraid to change the clutch cable of RE, ! They'll probably run away if i told them about the engine works. Kindly guide me through the ways to remove that top portion of engine . Thanx in advance
    If you have the tools and technical expertise, you can go ahead. An expert person named Monu Sagar uploads Royal Enfield maintenance/repair videos on YouTube under the caption of "Royal Enfield tips and tricks" regularly. His contact no. is given in the briefing there. He should be able to help you out.
