    when i took my bike( booked in September ) i waited for almost 58 days. as its a red and white color. black was 20 days back then.

    The charges:
    Oil- 470 15W-50 Semi-Syn. Is it Ok? Manual says 20W- 40/50
    Oil filter- 167
    Chain clean- 100
    Chain lube- 100
    Coolant- 250

    Total- 1087.

    Is it somewhat similar to others?
    Thanks!
    Try using your own chain lube, it saves cost and is easy to do.
    They replace the coolant at first service. So its okay. You get LC engine for a price.
    They use Motul 5100 a.k.a Yamalube SS, that 15w or 20w grading is more specific to cold states, not a issue in India.

Why I'm saying because , The coolant needs to be Top up When the coolant liquid is completely dry .The coolant Mark . For Top up they charge sum of Rs 50 [ Maximum ] . If the coolant is finished means , they used to Charge a sum of Rs.250 for Re-filling i.e Radiator capacity 0.59 L ( Including all routes ) and coolant reservoir capacity up to maximum level mark is 0.25 L .. Got it ?

    Water wash - Rs 60 , Coolant top up - Rs 50 , Coolant refill - Rs 250 , Chain lube - Rs 80 , Chain Clean - Rs 60 , Oil Filter - Rs 160 , Air filter - Rs 160 , Engine oil - Rs 420

    Note - These are the price quotations in my city ( Chennai ) Tamilnadu , Southern India . Price may subject to vary according to each State .

    He is almost right, as said, they replace the coolant at first service.

    Rear break sometimes squeal when it is used, it seems a bit iffy..

    Also I have some questions regarding run in:

    Manual says we can run the bike till 5000 RPM for first 500 Kms, My bike has done 450Kms approx. and I usually ride at 60-75 which is (4000 - 5000 rpm in 6th gear), is it alright?

    I shift to next gear at 4500-5000 Rpm most of the time, is it ok to do so?

    Also I try to be as smooth as possible with throttle and increase RPMs slowly and keep bike in 3k-5k Rpm range because below 3k engine feels too slow.

    Thanks in advance....
    You are doing just fine. . The rear brake for R15 is a bit sloopy. If you still find it indifferent, check with ASC.

    Well, right. Patience is the key.

    Don't use below 3K, but do use it during run-in. It is a necessity.

    Well, there is no harm in changing oil at 300 Km, if you ask me, i did two oil and oil filter changes before the first service.

    There are many discussions on run-in and beyond this thread.
    In short, it is perfectly fine and nothing wrong with it.

    Nah! I just meant it casually not "revving" ...Nothing personal brother
    I see in this thread that lot of people change oil in 300k...
    @all:Yamaha recommends oil change to be done in 1k kms(i guess, someone can reconfirm), which should be followed to get the perfect result. now one can argue that changing oil in 300kms is better because you take out the oil having metal scraps. But just give a thought that ,Yamaha wont recommend something that wont be right. We (two strokers) have been exactly following what has been said in manual for decades and still the machine from Yamaha stands as new as it was. So AFAIK changing oil as per Manual is the best option if you also follow the other conditions mentioned in it (rpm etc.)

    Yes, you are right, its on first service that oil change is recommended.
    But,
    There are many ways to break-in an engine, you might be aware about few. For ex search for motoman method.

    I ain't saying that Yamaha is wrong but what is there in user manual is written as per a general user so that they do not end up destroying the engine. Being in Industry, you all must know what I mean, you have to think from a laymen perspective while making manuls.
    They have to go with what is safest for us.

    Few people change oil frequently initialy because as you said, to clean out the metal scraps.

    Would you always change the oil only at servicing or recommended Kms, leave the break in days, afterwards ?
    No i guess, a lot depends on how you ride, what oil and other things.

    Just for example,
    Yamaha anywhere doesn't tell the importance of chain lube, neither the service guys would ever tell you that you can do it yourself.
    But we all know that chain requires frequent lubing and at intervals which can not be defined by service gudielines.

    Again i said this is a topic under discussion and it is upto people what they want to go with.
    In worst case, it would be little harsh on pocket, changing oil early in anyway does not fiddle with performance.

    I also started going by the manual and do not defy anything that is written there. I did had a change at 1K as well.
    But as you gain knowledge and get to know certain DIY aspects from good sources, i guess there is nothing wrong.

    P.S - This is just for discussion, all please stick to the business as usual, that is oil change at 1k initialy.

    Also, can some guy may be make a note of all points we have discussed for run-in, speeds rpms etc, we can share the link for all future queries on this front then. Make lives easier.

    ^MY view was only IF all the run-In conditions as per manual is followed. And if one does follow as per manual, then BEST result would be to change oil/oil filter at 1k km.
    As you have said there are lot of views/ways about it. Still just my two cents to avoid a misconception that "changing oil at 300km is perfect".

    Agree. . Though am sure most of the guys, who did a change before first service are doing it on service as well. If not, please follow.

    Hey nastro, good to see someone spending so much time in helping unexperienced and new people on the forum .. keep it up..!
    just FYI ... they (Yamaha guys) do not replace coolant at first service. I had the first service done for my babe in front of my eyes. They absolutely did nothing on the coolant part.
    They just checked the coolant level and dint even top it up(may be it was not necesaary.!)

    Changing oil at 300 isn't perfect.. Its just that it isn't bad. Although the oil can sustain the first 1000 kms w/o any prob (Oil filter does its work here), its just that if we can use fresher oil, why not. Just for psychological effect that those metal puppies ain't disturbing the Lion thats working inside the Den..
    Even if they are there, it doesn't harm.

    Yeah, I hope everybody does. Its just that, even if you have changed oil earlier, say even at 600 kms, its recommended to change it during first service. Atleast for warranty.

    Well actually the first few hundreds of KM cause the most of the shedding in of sharpnels... Oil filters are not designed to take care of hot-moving-sharpnels... its designed to take care of residue... Its only advisable that you change the oil+filter in the first few hundred KMs.
    Remember Oil+Filter is cheaper than a scored engine!
