As there is no window to check the color of the oil,i find it difficult... And they didnt water wash my babe due to some motor problem,so askd me to come tom.. But they cleaned and lubed my chain,will tat go away after wash??? Stupid ppl

    Overall gud service but they made a scratch in my clutch lever.. BTW can i get the aluminum clutch and brake levers (Lyk the one in CBR) I really like the feel of it

    I doubt if they would have cheated you with the engine oil. Anyway, if you had a doubt you should have got it change in your presence, especially since this is your first service.

    Yes, the chain lubing has gone to waste if they washed it afterwards. See, they got a lot of bikes to manage and they don't really give a shit about your 'babe', that's just how it is. Its your responsibility to make sure its all done properly no point blaming them.

    You i get the custom levers (billet metal) they are good but expensive (around 2k).

    Who said ?? It's a myth! Just don't ride it hard, so that engine gets heated abnormally.

    No, you do not turn your bike off when the fan kicks in. Its ok for the radiator fan to kicks-in.
    Ofcourse, this is assuming you are giving the motor a break say every 1/2 - 1 hour of riding and that you aren't abusing the motor by riding it at too high rpms.
    If you must stop the bike while the radiator fan is running, then use the engine kill switch to turn-off the engine (this keeps the electricals running), then wait for the radiator fan to turn-off by itself.
    Also, try to avoid traffic jams when running-in.

    Its hard to see it running as its well covered, but you can hear the high pitched sound when the bike is stopped and u can feel the vibration of the fan by placing your hand on the fuel tank.

    And by "Kick in" he means the radiator fan turns on (pitches in) to facilitate controlling of engine temparature.

    And my MOTOR he means the ENGINE and not the FAN MOTOR.

    Too basic but thought it needed to be mentioned .

    Thanks..
    So can i conclude that Radiator fan "kicks in" means it starts ?? like from non rotating state to rotating state?
    Means while driving you get a noise which you get when u stop the engine switch?? Is that called radiator "kicks-in"
    My bike is 650 Km old..If that is the case my baby's radiator never kicked in.

    One more question arise. During run in should i drive like 1 hour continuous and give a break of 5-10 min and continue the drive?
    Since i had my first service at 350 Km...and my till my next service i might run 2K+ kms.... what all things should i change from local mechanics?
    1) Engine Oil (If yes {Which one?} No{Then when?})
    2)Oil Filter (Yes or no)
    3)CHain Lube ?
    4) brakes and others things oils
    5)Any other thing?
    6)I have no taflon coating on my bike any wax or shampoo for bike wash?
