    Honda SVC has stock of both mineral and synthetic oils. Stick to 10w30 if your summers are below 40 degrees.

    Choice of colors and design sense highly differs person to person. It looks good but a bit odd to me. But again it can grow on me. Having said all those Thanks for sharing and I still love the Cherry Red color of CBR which defines the VFRish look.

    Yesterday fitted LED headlight, now the mechanic removed the dust cover of the bulb and said it is not required for the LED as the bulb has fat rear. He also said if he needs to fit the stock dust cover he needs to cut the same as per LED bulb size.

    Is it safe to ride without the dust rubber for the bulb?

    no, it is not safe to ride without the dust cover, given the pathetic conditions of the indian cities, the gunk would get in and damage your systems before the jury rig system blows up. I would highly recommend against using after market parts or modifications to the bike.

    Which led is it? In Bangalore my view is, we need that dust cover or slowly it will kill your headlight reflector due to dust. Since you have fitted already keep an eye on head light, if you see dust inside let's please switch back. I am saying this from my experience on Honda city fog lamp when I upgraded similar way. Now I can see alot dust inside.

    It's RTD LED 40w, 4400LM. Yes I just have installed it on saturday and haven't used it so far. Tonight is the time to test the bulb. The bulb mechanic told me he needs to cut the stock dust cover to fit it with new LED bulb, but I think I should go for it.

    The rubber cover will get damaged by the heat produced by the led lights and that is the reason the RTD led light comes with the fan. If you cover the bulb, the fan won't be able to cool the bulb, hence more heat and damaged rubber cover.

    Hey Ave.. IIRC you were the guy who suggested RTD LED few weeks or a month back. So do you use the same LED without the dust cover? And did you experience any dust around the reflector?
