  • Re: Yamaha YZF R3 Owners Reviews and Experiences

    Bought a R3 couple of weeks ago. Used to ride a Rx135 for 7 years and Pulsar 180 for 3 years. After 5 years of break, back to riding again and it is such a fun bike to ride.
    still miss my 135 though

      You got the tyres changed?
      How much did they cost you?
      Did you get them exchanged for the MRF's?

            I did, and the sound was same, a very mild 'tak' sound
            Alternatively, ask someone to hold the front disc tightly while you press the front brake and then compress the front suspension - you will not hear the sound.
            let us try it out on your bike the next time we meet want to understand your perspective as well.

            it could all be normal and unnecessary to worry about.

              I get the same sound on my splendor.
              This is from the ball bearing assembly that holds the front fork's triple clamps.
              when the top nut is a tad bit loose, it will make that sound.
              Since this bike does not have a main stand that can suspend the front wheel in air you will not be able to see the front forks go back and forward.
              You can test/replicate this issue on any bike that has a front drum brake.

                Same with my crux, the nut loosens if the bike is used regularly on bad roads or going fast on speed breakers.

                        Had a tip over in the office parking.
                        Lost balance over a bump as I forgot to release the side stand. Bike fell on the right side slowly. No scratches(Thank God!!) except a small one on the right front fork.


                        Ride safe everyone!
                        There I missed it, I always park in second floor (because I come late to office)...

                        Good to know you and the machine are okay. Side stand indicator and engine not starting when side stand on should be basic features... How come R3 missed these, we cant imagine... Finally heard someone saying frame sliders helped...

                        Happy and safe riding...

                            i did bike's 1st servicing at Rajpal Auto Lounge (earlier Yamaha Factory Shop, Wakdewadi)

                            Total bill : 1924/-
                            they charged me 30 Rs under Consumable Charges dont know for what it was....
                            which was kinda strange!

                            well i also fitted R&G Crash Protectors.

                              Did you buy the crash protectors from India or imported it from somewhere?
