    Not completely. You can get the labor charge waived I expect.

      I am having hard time finding a dealer in Delhi/NCR for Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2(R3 stock size). Any suggestions?
      I am planning to get DuPont Teflon Chain-Saver Dry Self-Cleaning Lubricant. SVC in my area has no clue about anything; the mechanics are not even trained enough to service the vehicle. Can you please post a pic of the lube container? How is the Yamaha Dry lube performing(in rains)?
      No specific model for the HEL lines. Contact Horizon Moto on Facebook for HEL.
      For Diablo Rossos in stock size contact tyremarket.com.
      The dry Yamalube is quite good in the rains. The rings retain the lube for a long time. Few other R3 owners are also using it and satisfied with the performance. Legend has it(!!) that the SVCs also used it but shelved it since it turned out to be expensive.
      If you want to order, you can get the part number of the bottle on the left (with the white cap). Show the SVC the picture and (more importantly) tell them the part number and they will order for you.

        Thanks mustang28. How many kms can we except the Diablo Rossos to last? Also did you check the off-road performance? Are there any other dual purpose tyres being used by other R3 owners? I know Rossos will offer excellent tarmac grip dry/wet. The stock MRFs suck both in wet and occasional off-road riding.

            After driving for about 2500k.m, my stock MRF rear tyre got crack and I got replacement and trade-in for michelin I paid 3600rs for rear and front 2600 they took my stock tyres for 2000 rear new one and 1700 front tyre used for 2500k.m (they thought front tyre must also be new as the rear tyre was new) :-)

              I have had Rossos for 300 kms only. Hoping they will last for atleast 10k kms!
              The wet grip is great (much better than MRFs). I have not tried offroading yet on the rossos.
              But the biggest advantage of Rossos is the improvement in the power transfer from the engine through the drive train to the road. It is way better than MRF.

              I have not used Michelins so cannot comment on their performance.

                I believe the current stock tires being offered in R3(outside India) are the Pilot Streets and I read the owners are already complaining about them. Many of them prefer the Diablo Rosso so I am keen on getting these. Wet grip is my major concern.

                10k is acceptable. I guess Rossos will be a better bet.

                  Pilot Street is not really in the same class as Diablo Rosso.
                  You should compare the Diablo Rosso with Pilot Road 4 or Pilot Power 3.
                  Just got the Pilot Road 4 (unfortunately only front size is available in India as of now) today. Will get back with experience by tomorrow.

                    AFAIK it is specifically designed for R3 keeping touring in check. Hence it is not the same performance oriented tyre from Micheline.

                      Guys, anybody knows the cost of the entire key/ignition set for the R3 ?
                      Tried searching forum and calling up the service center but got no information about it.

                      Stock is another issue, the places i had called had no stock for it.

                      *******EDIT********
                      Got the price from another service center. They informed me it to be 4k. And also said it'll take 15 days for the spare to arrive.

                              Got my oil pump replaced today. On a short ride back, didn't feel any difference other than slight feel that the clutch & gear seems to b more smoother to operate.

                                Had misplaced the key in apartment parking lot. Found it later on. So could not risk keeping the bike on the same lock set.
