    Hi guys,

    I got my bird on Friday and it seems all good so far. The only thing bothering me is the engine sound which RE Guys saying that this is normal initially and will go away after running period.

    If you got two mins please download and check if this is normal. Here is the google drive link for the same.

    Also I am unable to kick start first time in the day. I might be doing something wrong here.

    Kindly Advise.

    Many Thanks,
    Kshitij

    Congratulations and wish you a lot of happy miles on your Bird, post listening to the sound you posted it looks like there is a tappet noise that is evident on the recording, however this should not be a concern as the new birds are normally tuned for higher RPM to set the engine, while this should be taken care of in your first service just ensure you mention the tappet sound on the job card during your first service.

    kshitij.sharma you would also notice a higher rev while in idle, this is a part of the initial set up and it takes up to the 3rd service or 6000 / 8000 km for them to tune this for a lower rev.

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

    Has anyone found a nice high backrest for the TB 500? Can you please post details? I checked with the RE showroom in Jayanagar, Bangalore today and they said they dont have any accessories for this.
