  • Re: Yamaha YZF R3 Owners Reviews and Experiences

    Guys, What would be the tentative time it would take to get the RC smart card for R3 in Bangalore? I got my bike on 25th June, but still waiting for it.
    Any ideas?

        The Koramangala RTO took nearly 90 days in my case. There was a delay from their side and eventually I went and collected it from the RTO office since I didnt want to take a risk. Be prepared to have to bribe them though if you want things to move quickly and not be bounced around.

          Mine is Jayanagar RTO. I guess I too have to take a trip to RTO about the current status. I am shifting my home and don't want to take chance in case they already posted it. What I remember in my Car's case is, I got a SMS that it has been dispached. Is it same for 2 wheelers as well? I doubt!

            After the recall, the coolant level dropped too much. They were filling the coolant from the radiator cap which is wrong. Not sure if R15's coolant top up is done like this and they only know this method. The mechanic had no idea, and I had to bring the service manual and show it to them.
            Today went to SVC for coolant top up. These people never filled the coolant the right way. They tried to fill the coolant via the radiator cap, where the service manual clearly says not to do that. The coolant top up should only be done from reservoir tank. Just need to remove the cowling from left side and fill the coolant. You guys also check the level on a cold engine.
            The fan used to come ON in a recent trip often and even the way to the SVC today. It never turned ON to the way back home even in traffic after topping up.

              There is actually nothing 'wrong' filling up the radiator especially when coolant is very low (for whatever reason..such as crank case/covers opened etc..)
              this is how a basic cooling system works:
              the radiator is filled and the plastic tank is called an 'expansion tank'. as the temp goes up (so does pressure), the valve in the radiator cap opens at a set pressure (you'll see a pressure reading stamped on radiator cap) and pushes the coolant in to expansion tank, on cooling down(pressure drops) the coolant gets sucked back in to radiator.
              It's always good practice to first fill up the radiator, close the radiator cap and then top off the expansion tank (plastic tank) to between its min-max position. This is true especially when one replacing the coolant or in cases like yours where lots of it was lost. This ensures there is no air trapped in the radiator/hoses.
              The manual pic you posted only states do not open the radiator cap when hot, and this applies to any almost any automotive radiator.

                Update on MRF Tyre Situation:

                Went to MRF yesterday and they said that they will give me new tyre free of cost provided I get the old tyre off my bike myself and bring them the old tyre without the alloy wheel.

                So this is now an inconvenience again as I have to go to the service center to get the tyre off the wheel and then go to the Tyre dealer to get the new tyre and then come back to get the new tyre installed.

                I could have removed the wheel myself if I had a paddock stand But I don't. The MRF dealer does not have the tools or the know how to get the wheel off my bike.

                Have anyone of you faced this problem?

                  Me and my friend had the same situation, we were not replacing, we had to top up the coolant. The radiator is already filled there is a very limited amount that goes in via that. . If you search you can understand that you have to fill both. To top up you don't even have to open radiator cap like you would have to in the case of replacing.

                    Common 'issue' faced by these generation of expensive bikes which mostly do not have a center stand. Some tire shops are inexperienced/do not want to mess up chain setting , do not have paddock etc.. etc..
                    It's always better you get the rim unmounted at the svc and take it to the tire shop. chose a tire shop that has the machine to unmount and mount the tire. try avoiding the ones that use the tire levers and manually do the tire unmounting/mounting. once the tire is mounted, carry it back to the svc and have them fix the rear wheel and adjust chain. bit of running around but easily manageable if you have a friend and an activa or a friendly rapport with svc who will tag along with you
                    e.g. i bargained the price of the tire with tire dealer directly (they refused to touch the bike), took bike to svc.. they unmounted rim and came along with me to dealer on their activa..we got the old tire removed and new tire mounted on rim and came back to svc and mounted it back on bike. Svc charged me 100 bucks. Peace of mind.

                    you did not either read or understand my prev explanation.
                    under normal cases, topping off expansion tank is ok. but if you lost a lot of coolant (for whatever reason) it's better to always make sure the radiator is first full before adding coolant in the expansion tank. Even otherwise, making sure radiator is full first is not 'bad' or wrong.. once you are sure that the radiator is full, then top off the expansion tank (as you said if there is part of fairing to be opened, some mechs might skip it due to laziness.. but should be done)
