      I switched to michelin and after switching the first riding was different.. I feel the bike tires take a gud hold on the road and it feels little hard to turn the handle bars as the tyre sits firmly on the road..

        Thanks for the update Praveen. Could you also let us know what is the procedure to check the engine oil level. I just bought it, and could not possibly see the oil in the Engile Oil Level Check Window.

          This can be viewed both positively and negatively.

          Positive - The tires are more grippy so less chance of sliding.
          Negative - If it is correct as you said - the maneuverability will be lesser than before (not much of compromise). But this should go away once you put some miles on those tires.


          Either way - in rainy Indian road condition - you should go for the safety first as STUBBORN YAMAHA (don't know what other words I could have used) doesn't offer ABS even as an option!!

          Get more grippy tire as you can. Or stick with those stock MRFs if you want some training and experience on power slides!

                It is clearly mentioned in the users manual. Anyways the right procedure is hold your bike upright, turn it on and warm the engine up for around 2 minutes. Now turn off the engine and let the oil settle down(Takes around 2 mins). Now hold the bike upright and check the oil level.

                      Hi i had enquired about the world wide recall issue at yahama's call center in India
                      They said that some bikes might be affected and a decission will be taken on first week of july to fix those units.
                      As I gaze upon your beauty, I think to myself, "never have I seen an angel fly so low".

                        Do you have any links for the recall? Is it something serious?

                        Edit: Never mind I got the links. Thanks for the headsup though!

                                Only few bikes are affected but they are recalling almost all bikes because of preventive measures although we still haven't got any call/mail officially from Yamaha.
