      Thought it might be helpful to you guys
      Yes, that very well might be the case.

      If I leave the handlebar, the bike sways to the left. The left fork was adjusted today but that has not solved the problem.

      Let me know who are you in touch with Yamaha for this. Want to see if replacing the clip-on solves the problem.
      Same issue buddy.
      Changing the clipon wont solve the problem of bike going to left.
      In my bike, the right clip-on was nearer to the tank than the left one.
      Thats why getting the right clip-on replaced.

      There definitely is issue with triple clamp/else.

      Please raise your concern with Yamaha directly.
      As the same issue is present in many of the bikes, Yamaha should take it seriously and that can be achieved with more no. of official complaints.

      Have you got the fork oil checked like @kuntalnag did? Improper oil level in one fork also causes this drifting.
      Fork play is gone. No issue on that front now.
      Bent clip-on is getting replaced, so fine with that.

      Did not check the fork oil level yet, will get it checked then.

      I will follow up once the clip-on gets replaced.


      P.S.
      To log a complaint you can call in that toll free no.

        OT: Is there any changes made to export variants of RC 390? The front disc looks different on the RC.

          On careful observation today even my R3 has the right clip on closer to tank than the left? Is this an issue ? Shall i raise a request with Yamaha?

            [MENTION=47318]kuntalnag[/MENTION]: How long back was the fork adjusted? Mine was adjusted at first service but the play came back after a few hundred kms.

              There are 2 things you may consider before raising an issue:

              1. While taking a sharp U turn, is your right hand/wrist touching the fuel tank ?
              In my case, the wrist was touching the tank on right side but not on left side, ideally it should not. As if wrist or hand is blocking the movement,
              it maylead to mishap while taking a U turn
              2. Is your bike going on straight line or swaying towards right/left while both the handle bars are unattended ?
              If not straight, then issue.

              If you face any of these issues, you can raise a complaint. The gap can be little different on right/left side because of the fuel tank size as well(but ideally it should not though).

              Ohhh ok.
              The fork was adjusted just last Friday.

                    Ya i just checked, there is no problem in my bike while taking U turn. My hands/wrist do not touch the tank.But definitely the right side is closer to tank than the left marginally.

                    Guys check out this video. The R3 giving a hard time to the biggies like Triumph 675,GSXR, ZX6R ,KTM RC 8 in a race track. The R3 leads till end of the video.In the hands of an able track rider the R3 is a real contender is proved.

                      hand touching tank while U-turn is not proper measurement. infact my Gt250R handle just 5mm free space when turned full at one side from tank. in showroom they teach you to take U-turn on such sporty bikes, like how to hold handle.
                      coming to point,
                      1.keep the bike in center-stand/paddlock stand
                      2. turn the handle bar all the way to right side till it reaches the limit
                      3. take a ruler/scale for measurement and check how much gap is left from handlebar end to tank , measure in inches
                      4. repeat the same for left side.
                      5. compare the results , both should be exactly the same.

                      Due to R3 trepple-tee clamp design , where the keyhole is designed to bend on right side , you guys might feel its slightly turn towards to right side, but as we know it shouldn't be the case, prob'ly your minds playing tricks :P

                        It is problem when one side touches the tank but other side does not.

                        Also the gap might not be same beacuse of the allignment of the Fuel tank itself(told by Yamaha guys). Ideally it should though.

                        So we need to check if the bike is moving properly or not(i.e. swaying to left/right) and also whether its creating any issue to the rider or not(wrist touching the tank one side and blocking the movement of handle bar).
                        @chetan6686: then you are good.

                          He is a very capable rider. By the way at 6.58 which is that bike? It's a bullet!!

                            Owners, I have a query. I am looking to buy a R3, however all the R3s I rode till today had a stiffer gear box. The upshifts do not happen with a click, rather feels very stiff, while the downshifts are perfect. Can owners confirm if this is a trait of the R3. Thanks in advance.

                              No, I have not faced such issue.

                                I have the answer. Thats because you use those Kawasakis. The gear shifts are so smooth in them and hence you feel the tightness in R3's . Coming from an R15 and riding R3, you maynot feel it. Yamaha doesn't want to make it too smooth. Thats what Yamaha has been doing all along. R3 has that click sound too while shifting. But if you shift it like you do on your bike, what you are going to find is false neutrals

                                Faced the issue plenty times on my few days with [MENTION=35815]krish2778[/MENTION] 's R3. I also dint feel much has changed after the servicing as well.
                                But again thats just getting used to.
