    False neutral or some wicked stuff is it ?
    You may need to take it to service center and reproduce the issue in front of service supervisor

    After deciding to retire the OE stock rear-view mirrors [RVM] as the LHS has become dull and faded, I selected the new Avenger Cruise chrome RVM as they look sturdier, more stylish and better quality compared to the OE stock ones.

    Since my son was also not satisfied with his Classic 500's OE stock ones, I bought a set and fitted on his Classic 500. He is satisfied with the new Avenger Cruise RVM after using for a coupla days. So, today, I bought another set and fixed them on my Blue Bird. Each set costs ₹ 678. I am yet to test the new RVM on the city roads and highways.

    Hi friends..

    Posting here on behalf of my friend who owns RE Thunderbird 500 purchased in 2015. His bike has covered 8500+ kms till now and engine oil was recently changed to Motul 5100 from previous Liquid Gun engine oil. His bike has some weird problem like even if the clutch lever is pulled in completely, but the clutch remains little bit engaged and if we change gear then the bike starts moving very slowly while we hold the clutch lever. Sometimes it is just like engine is pushing the bike. We asked SVC guys to solve this and they tightened the clutch cable and gave us back. But still same problem persists.

    Recently another problem started with this, as the bike is standstill and engine is off then we can't change gears from 1st to Neutral or 2nd etc. Even the engine is running and if we slot the 1st gear from neutral then it will get into 1st but after that no neutral or even 2nd gear until we ride the bike like 10-15 meters. Even we move the bike forth and back while changing gears but still no change. This is annoying in city traffic situation. We asked one of the mechanic of SVC and he said that the clutch bearing needs to be changed. So I am posting here to get some solution and info from Thunderbird owners.

    Thank you

    @Ravi: So I did this within the first 1 week of getting my bike 2 years back, no complaints since then as its sturdier but one draw back is the view isnt as good as the OE ones, can manage easily just wont let you get a good view of extreme sides.

    Also thought i'd let you know that finally will be making to Leh this year, starting out in 7 days from now

    Sometimes it takes a whole tank of fuel before you can think straight.

    Based on my usage from the past 3 days on Chennai roads, I am satisfied with the new mirrors. No vibration, more coverage, more stylish, better quality & sturdier.

    Oh, nice. Bon voyage. After the ride, please share how your bird behaved at Ladakh. My bird's turn will come in September.

    Yesterday, I experimented with video-recording while riding on Blue Bird. But, the main problem was finding the right mount and placing it at the right place. The existing navigator holder on the LHS of the handlebar could not be used for mounting the camcorder as it has restricted space for rotation and the obstructing cables. So, I joined the base of one more surplus handlebar holder with the top claw of another and fixed it on the RHS stem of the indicator. Then, I used my Lenovo K3 Note phone camera for video-recording, while riding, but it turned out to an utter flop as the mount could not balance the phone due to its weight and a lot of vibrations crept into the video, resulting in me discarding the maiden video attempt. Then, I tried with my XUV 500's cheap Chinese camcorder, which brought out reasonably good result. Until better alternative arrangement is made in future, this present set-up will continue on B Bird as I don't want any helmet-mounted camcorder jutting out of my head, while riding!

    After the video-recording of more than 16 minutes, I uploaded it to YouTube, edited it and made a short film of 2 minutes.
