    In regards to what the problem might be, excessive engine lugging(riding st low rpms) may cause engine knocking, hence the vibrations. Now, it sounds like in your case, it might be pretty bad. Piston rings could be damaged, maybe the cylinder walls, possibly the crankshaft as well. Again, best thing to do, let the technician diagnose the problem.


    The CBR has a very high revving engine, and isn't meant to be changed below 4000 rpm! It makes max power at 10,500 rpm so don't be scared to rev it in the future. Ideally, gears should be changed at around 5-6000 rpm under normal riding. 6th gear should be engaged above the speeds of 60kmph.


    However I would advise you not to ride your bike too long and at high rpms at the moment as it might further damage your engine. You need to show it to the service center ASAP.


    Changing the petrol will not make much of a difference.


    Don't not despair though, the engine is very rugged and built with high durability in mind. Whatever the problem is, it can be fixed. It might cost more (possibly), but try not to take my post in a bad way.


    Do go through these pages for more advice, running in advice has been given time and again.


    Hope the very best for you my friend!
    Thx a lot for the help man. As you told me, i didn't ride my bike after reading your comment and took it to service center today morning. I got my bike back just now. They told me everything is fine now and told me there wasn't much problem. Now there are no vibrations like earlier. I think the vibration at high rpm now is normal vibration. I'm not sure tho as im new to riding bikes. I'll make sure that from today i shift gears at 5k+ rpm
    Should i start using shell super from now? And also should i switch to a better engine oil from next time? I was thinking of putting motul. Do they void warranty for putting a different oil?
    Thanks once again for the help man

    Am glad to hear it turned out fine. And no problem, we all are here to learn and take care of our loves. Hehe.

    Yeah, there definitely is a fair bit of vibrations once you start nearing your redline. It's mostly noticeable past 9k rpm. But don't let it stop you, the feeling of ripping her all the way till 11k is amazing! And I've had many people come up and tell me that at high rpms, the little CBR sounds like an inline 4! Definitely agree! Haha!

    I wouldn't suggest filling Shell super every time. That expensive for no particular benefit. A better practise would be to get a full tank of super once every 2-3 months. Mixing of fuels is not a problem. The main benefit of getting better fuel is for the additives that prevent deposits in the fuel system. So one tank every 2-3 months is sufficient.

    As for oil, some service centers believe changing the oil will void your warranty, whereas others don't mind. In reality, changing your oil should not affect your warranty at all, but you can't go argue with people who don't want to understand. Check with your service center. If they don't agree, you can always get it changed at a reliable mechanics. A good oil for the CBR would be Motul 7100.

    Hope this helps! Take care of her, and she'll take care of you.

    They told me the bike was in good condition and there was nothing wrong with the bike. They told me they checked my bike completely and tightened all the screws and bolts. They didn't tell me what caused the vibrations. They just told me they fixed everything. After servicing, the bike didn't have vibrations like earlier. After the first service my bikes sound became shit. When you start the engine and keep it idle, there will be a sound something like a pen is being beaten on a plastic piece at a constant rate. There will be normal engine sound and at the background there will be that sound. Don't know if its normal. After second service it was still there but i didn't notice it as i became used to that after the first service. Now from yesterday that sound increased. I noticed an increase in that sound. The vibrations are gone but there is that sound.
    And also i asked service center people to change oil in-front of me. So there did everything and waited for me to come and then changed the oil. Hope my bike is fine.
    I'm a beginner so i tried to take care of my bike which ruined it lol.
    Hope your bike never gets any problems

    Had a bad experience wit spg at ecr chennai today.. I was interested to buy spg helios riding jacket. So went to the outlet wit 3 of my frnds. And asked the sales person to show helios. He said there is no stock available. My main purpse of the visit is to wear and check how the fit is. But the people in showrom was not helpful at al. They were simply tryi to get rid of me off the shop.
    I cudnt understand how come there is not even a single jacket for my size for havin a trial.

Before getting this bike, i was a bit worried about the wrist and back pain. Everybody said, that i would be able to adapt to it, as kilometers pile on. It did get better with time, and i hardly used to feel any pain. I use the bike, mainly for commuting to my college. The route to my college, is a mix of freeway, and city traffic. Since the past couple of months, a long stretch of the route has become very chaotic, due to the construction of a flyover. The traffic is stop-and-go, and is very very slow. I can hardly shift to the second gear. Due to this, i am having a lot of back, and wrist pain. Therefore, was seriously thinking of selling the R15, and getting the CBR150R. Before booking the R15, i did take a test ride of the CBR, Went with the R15, mainly because of the more usable low and mid-range torque.

    Before deciding further, i wanted to clear some of the doubts.

    1) Is the low-end of the CBR, too sluggish? Do i always need to stay in first gear, in moderate traffic conditions?

    2) At what RPMs, do i need to shift, to the second, third, and fourth gears, so that i don't end up lugging the engine?

    3) As the engine is so free and high revving, will it be as durable as the R15's engine (considering the amount of stress, the components are exposed to)? I know that it is a Honda, and that the engineers there, are no fools, but blown seals and broken connecting rods, are common to high revving engines. Anybody here, who has had to replace the engine head gaskets, or oil seals? Anybody here, who has covered more than 20k kms?

    4) Are the spare parts of the CBR, much more expensive than the R15?

    Has anybody here, switched from an R15, to the CBR?

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance!
    I am a cbr 150 owner and have it for the past 10 months, if you are looking at ease in traffic i dont think if these bikes can provide that maybe looking at a different segment may help that . From what ive heard R15 v2 has a much lower RPM power band for the smaller gears 1 and 2 specially tuned for the indian traffic, but hearing about it from you i think it isnt that good :P
    Coming to the CBR 150R, you wont be able to shift much to the 2nd gear in regular traffics specially the crawling and stop and go 1z considering you dont want to lug the engine! But i'll tell you the cooling system of the bike is really amazing, i have revved mine really hard on lower gears in traffic for really long durations and i have faced no issues except for a little heat on the legs, but thats the only issue you will face, the performance of the engine will be still great. And ya the most important thing : the correct engine oil for the conditions you ride in and a good pair of gloves, else your left hand is going to be numb! haha :P , with good pair of gloves(as in good padding) ive never had any posture problem.

    If you really want a vehicle which could be easily ridden in heavy city traffic go for a Scooter. That would be a definite choice for comfort. Only the issue is mind settle, if you can allow yourself to move on to scooters from sporty bike.
    i think the new splendor i smart can also be a good option .

    The 10 merely states that the engine can be cold started from around 10℃ easily.

    The stock Honda FS oil is 10W30. Which is suitable for city riding, but not long distance touring, as it's gets too hot when ridden hard for a long period, cause engine harshness.

    So its a trade off, hence changing the oil should be a thought out decision.

    Hope this helps!
    that is true for the honda stock FS oil, i have experienced it myself. It is just not made for long distance touring, by mistake i got the Honda stock SS oil in the last service and i hate myself for that. it seems like the oil takes ages to smoothen and heat up, initial run is very bad.
    What oil are you using btw...shell FS?

    If anyone has used Shell FS 10w40, can you please tell me the pros and cons or maybe how it felt in the city run atleast.

    I had bought mine in Oct 2013 and i had got it on the same day maybe because i didnt have to wait for any financial plan approvals but ya i took it the next day because the insurance wasnt done yet. The extended 3 year warrenty for the engine is not very expensive so i think taking that should be a sensible option specially when you are putting in so much cash on this bike and having the engine insured for 5 years feels safe .
    The bike is amazing in its own way, read the manual and follow the instructions until the first service. Of all, please dont upshift below 5k~6k rpm.
    All the best for your new bike and do post some pics
