    DimensionsExperience

    After 200km

    The beast is so smooth and godgeous to ride. Its highly stable and gives confidence in taking sharp turns. Engine is so refined and low vibrating that it doesnt really feel running at times. Riding position is a bit leaned and sporty. Might be an issue for long rides but in city rides it feels very sporty. Front disc brakes are powerful but rear drums are weak and rear brake is position low as per my experience. Suspensions feel a bit hard. The instrument cluster is digital and quite nice. RPM range is animated great and readable in day light also without any problem. The new eco drive indicator lights on while the bike is rode at efficiency. I reached 80kmph. Still controlling myself until the breakin period is over. Seats are more comfortable now and pillion seat is a great improvement. I surely felt a let down in terms of power and torque. My bike goes as high as 4000RPM at speed of 40kmph in 4th gear and i dont think this one easily accelerates from 30kmph in 5th gear without jittering. I wonder how can my FZ accelerate slower than an activa. I did a small race to check its power. What i presume is that after first service which is at "1000km", i might see an improvement in performance. But overall the bike is really smooth and good looking and the rear of this FZ is a beauty to watch.

      Re: Yamaha FZ16 version 2.0

      Is it normal for my bike to accelerate slower than an activa before 1000km or i should be worried? and i have done 270km on my bike now, can i now ride my bike on speeds 70-80 and may be higher? or still i need to complete my first 1000km before rushing my bike. Some of my friends were saying if i dont drive bike fast now, i might face low engine power in later phase as my engine hasnt been exposed well enough during breakin period. Please clear my doubts

        Whatever people say but the fact is a properly managed activa can accelerate quicker than most of the bikes but where it lays down is the speed department . Your bike is relatively newer and will take time to realise its full potential , untill then keep controlling your hands in the throttle .

          Since you are in break-in period, don't ride at constant speed, change your speed so that engine adjusts itself to various speed fluctuations. Use all gears and ride at high speed for few minutes and not more.

          Read the manual for break-in period instructions. During break-in period, riding under specified RPM is important and not speed. As mentioned above, you can ride at high speeds but not for too long. Also, change the oil and oil filter after covering 500kms.

            don't worry bro! stick to your instructions manual for the 'running in' instructions, and follow them religiously. once your bike is well broken in it will be a smooth machine that will be like a hungry wolf chasing a prey. and you wont have to worry about any Activas!!

            this is not completely true. use the bike at varying speeds but within limits specified for Running-in as per instructions manual.

            cheers!

                Guys about my above post is harsh but still I'm not against the bike if the pickup issue doesn't bother me, however do post positive so that my mind can get changed and will not recommend my brother about its negatively peace

                      There was some problem in autofocus dye to lighting of the meter....otherwise its very clear just like in last 2 pics but in little orange light.

                        The speedometer looks way better than the previous one.
                        [MENTION=71141]mohitgoyal707[/MENTION].. Having fun with the bike ? How many kms done.?

                        Ride safe and have fun.

                          340km done Bike is very smooth to ride till 70kmph after that you can feel the engine roaring. Overall handling is great but little down on power. Instrument console is great but its not accurate in terms of fuel guage. I switched it on first timw it showed reserve warning and again i turn it on after off and it shows two bars of fuel. I wonder whats the issue.

                            340kms.. Good going do service the bike between 450-600kms. It would be good for the engine.
                            The bike is in run-in period, so it would feel a bit heavy above 70-75km/h. It was like this with my bike also (older fz) when new. As for the fuel gauge, its just it give you an idea about the fuel. It isn't accurate. To have a little bit correct reading, keep the bike straight for a min and then the correct (nearly) reading would show.
                            Enjoy the smooth and trouble free engine, don't think about power too much.

                            Ride safe and have fun.

                              I had some doubts and questions regarding my bike :

                              1. I went to yamaha service center to get my rear brake tight. I saw there that the service guys wash every bike and lubricate the chain with motul spray but dont use any chain cleaner before that. Is it alright? If not what should i be doing in this case?

                              2. I had my bike teflon coated in 400rs as it wasnt free with this bike. But still i can see alot of minor scratches on the fuel tank of the bike. Can i do something about it? I was wondering what does teflon coating do exactly? Is is worth for 400rs? and How often should i get it done?

                              3. I am having some hard time cleaning my bike. It doesnt give a good shine and matte parts looks very whitish. How should i clean my bike? What i want to know is the brand and version of polish that i should be using for body and matte parts, and any other accessories i should invest in for keeping my bike as new as possible.

                              Any other thing you would like to suggest regarding taking care of bike, you are most welcome and i must say, I am just in love with this bike for its mean looks and smooth engine. I am dying to get my first service, i guess then the beast would rage better .

                              Regards
