    This is what I was referring to :

    I think the problem is normal and not a problem anymore. As in, it is okay if they are sounding that way, completely fine. No need to worry on that, As a precautionary measure please conduct this small test when you have free time and daylight is available.

    Check the front forks -
    1) Check if there are any scratches, mind you not those type which have carving type structure, check if there smooth rubbed type scratches, something like brushed metal effect ones.
    2) Why in daylight - they will shine with bit of golden color in them...All chrome right, somewhere goldenish color with brushed metal type effect.

    If such type of marks are there then please head to SVC and get the inner tubes replaced, they are bent. Expect fork oil seal to go kaput in few kms and not days, this is the first symptom.

    They should replace it in warranty at any cost, if not, call up customer care.

    Still they don't agree then -
    1) Pay for new part and get it replaced, the more you ride on bent forks the more damage to chassis, your arms, disc brakes, stability, eventually ending with danger.

    or
    2) Head to welding shop, they will have the bench-press machine, this is how they straighten out bent fork tubes. This will be relatively cheap compared to first alternative. Pressure is applied to the tubes in straight line, MM of curvature is rectified in this process, so expect them to be new at the end of the procedure.

    We are taking about silver tubes the inner ones.

    I rode at 50kmph for the first 5 odd kms and then opened up the machine, maybe as you said the engine wasnt warm enough.

    Do you guys hear some tock tock sound from the engine between 5k to 6k rpm while wearing a helmet? When I remove my Ls2, the sound is not that pronounced as it does when helmet is on.

    To be precise on the description of sound, it sounds something similar when we suddenly accerelate our bike from low speed at high gears. I hope you got what I want to say
    Yes, that's normal. But again if you feel its disturbing then head to SVC, get the mech to sit behind you for a TR, explain him the noise when it arises. No need for oil change, go according schedule and till now your perfect.

    No problem at all, the sticker will simply tear after facing abrasion on tarmac leaving the fiberglass shell naked to absorb impact.

    Go to petrol pump reset any trip X to "0"kms and full tank it. Later ride the bike say to some 150-200 kms or 2-4days as per use and full tank it again. Now note the numbers of liter went in your tank while refueling it. Now calculate the Kms on trip meter against the no of liters you refilled while refueling! You will get the average of your bike.

    But here there are some constraints which you have to look:
    1. If you vary the speed then you will get a mix average.
    2. So you have to be on either on your ripper mode or on your comfortable riding mode.

    These ways you can get an average for ripping and normal riding. It's better you try one by one instead of mix riding!!

    There's no issue with the front forks unless and until you go through a pot hole and bump really bad. It will damage the forks and then you'll get and the forks will make all sorts of kat-kat dhus-dhus sounds however you may like to describe it. As Eshan has very well mentioned about the scratches and the golden colored thingo( if at all forks are damaged). You can check with existing owner of R15 in your city regarding that. Seeing is believeing
    In the end it all depends on the way you ride it and the care you take. It's your call mate.
