Finally the ODO has crossed 2000kms, the run-in recommended by Yamaha..

    The Bike is pretty stable, its just I wanted more and more speed.. to catch-up with Ninja's The bike is Super cool to Cruz at Avg. speed of 120kms/Hr, effortlessly..

    Does using Fully Synthetic E-Oil help moving the Top speed beyond 130kms+ in any condition..

    Any other recommended tunings to increase the performance.. love to see 140kms+ on Speedo..
    The run in recommended in the manual is 1000km.Changing the oil will not make difference in top speed. I guess using higher octane petrol like speed 97 mite give you a very little increase in pick and as well as top speed.Am not too sure about this.Experts should confirm..Duck in to achieve more top speed.It will give you a bump of atleast 7-8 kms.
    I have done 145

    Hey Daytona, the recommended run in is 1000 kms, specified in the manual. Also, crouching can do wonders, try doing that, if not already.

    145 is cool!


    I got my first servicing done. Was charged for engine oil, oil filter and coolant topup (470+170+50). Also got the Rx135 center stand (250) plus the shaft (60).
    Was given an option to go for Fully Synthetic oil but I opted for the usual SS.
    That guy wanted to charge 100Rs for chain cleaning and lubing but then I asked them not to do it, did it myself at home.

    Had been to a small ride (140kms) yesterday. It was the first time I was riding in the dark without street lights and was mighty disappointed with the throw of the headlights. Was not even close to being sufficient.
    Anyone who can guide me into the world of HIDs and angel eyes as to the mods required, approx costs, vendors, warranty implications?

    Great...Cost? Installation? Warranty issues? Battery overload?
