    Looks nice but for me best tank pad yamaha introduced was with R15 V2 limited edition.

      Yes!Sometimes the electricals of the bike doesn't work the way it should.If the coolant reservior stops working,the notification on the console doesn't show up sometimes.Go have a check at the SVC and do lets us know.

      The OEM Tank Pad looks "Mehhh" to me.There are much more cooler Tank Pads on ebay and other websites.Aren't the adhesive of the tank pad is bad for the tank as they tend to leave a mark when it is taken off?

        Got the bike to the SVC to check for the shut off issue. The SVC guy rode it and after considerable heating of the engine he noticed that the fan was kicking in late. Also when the fan did kick in the bike did not start. It started after the fan stopped. So yeah this is related to the heating up of the engine.

        Have given them the bike to run the diagnostics in their system and get it rectified. Will update more after getting the machine back.

          Good progress. How many bars was the fuel gauge at when this was checked?
          Also, check the battery and RR voltage when off the bike (overnight no use) and on it (when engine is running). This way all doubts will be eliminated.

            Finalised on R3 over ninja 300. Here is why IMO.
            1. 44k cheaper. Cheaper to maintain. N300 spares are ridiculously overpriced.
            2. R3 makes power early compared to N300 whose real potential comes in at higher revs. This makes it fun to ride in city as well as highway.
            3. The 'new' factor!
            4. Better braking.
            5. More power and torque. Although marginal still evident.
            6. Yamaha fanboy.

            Monday marked for booking. Delivery in 10-12 days.
            Choosing blue over black because blue stands out. Black is lost in the crowd. Although it's a blessing in disguise. No offense black R3 owners.

            What are the must have accessories apart from helmet. Guys please suggest.

              Great decision mate! Wishing you have a great delivery and ride experience Do keep us posted with lot of pics.

              Update on the engine shut off issue :
              Got the relay unit replaced with a new one. The bike is not exhibiting the previous behavior now. Will keep observing and go back if required. This was done under warranty so no charges were paid.

                        Tawang is 2 days journey from Guwahati..

                        Guwahati to Dirang (350kms, 100 kms of hills, around 12 hours)
                        Dirang to Tawang (150kms, 8 hours)
                        Same is the return. August Sept will be a good time, but you may face some rains. Ping me if you need any help.. am from Guwahati.
                        Only Tawang can be covered from this route, as there are separate entry points to other parts of Arunachal.

                              Yes Sarvajit the starter relay was changed. Did not face any such issue till now.

                              Completed running-in. Now it's time to let the 42 horses loose
