  • Re: Yamaha YZF R3 Owners Reviews and Experiences

    Guys got my R3 today. Awesome bike. Few doubts r dere like :
    1. Pillion is not as comfortable as others reviewed.
    2. Got a burning smell from the front part of the bike. Is it usual during the early days?

      Congratulations!

      Few doubts are there like :
      1. Pillion is not as comfortable as others reviewed.
      Yes, it is hard and has some play (not while sitting) too.

      2. Got a burning smell from the front part of the bike. Is it usual during the early days?
      Yes, I'm getting it all the time too.
      If you see metal filings at the 1st service, it means the piston set itself correctly!
      Keep varying the speeds and gears. No worries.

            @All: What kind of mileage did you guys get during run-in?
            I got 20kmpl on my first tank full. That's about 200kms. range before hitting reserve.
            I haven't lugged the engine and have exceeded 7K RPM on 3-4 occasions.
            Does it increase after oil change?

            [MENTION=79448]Karan Aj[/MENTION]: I can't see the tank pad pic. How much is it?

                I've been getting 24kmpl in the city since I got the bike. And 28kmpl on the highway. But I dont ride aggressively.
                Dont worry about the RPM limit dude, I tested the top speed of the bike atleast 7 times just for the rush during run-in LOL

                I'm curious to know other's mileage as well.

                    Guys! I got my bike this Tuesday...

                    Will post the initial impression soon...

                    Although extremely smooth, I do get some vibes around 7k RPMs, anyone else having the same?
                    Haven't checked the mileage yet, although the meter shows 25kmpl :P
                    after monday and tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!!

                        Nice pics.
                        BTW, what's that barbecue grill doing on the bike?
                        I got it removed before delivery itself!

                              Anyone thinking of up-sizing the rear Tyre(to 150) ? If yes, what are the options available in India ?
