      From day one, I been idling my at every cold start or start after a period I idle the bike for 1-2 mins,its good cause petrol which is at the bottom will leave a residue I think its good to idle ur bike every morning for a min or two

        And the fluids will run through, putting less strain on the engine

          As I gaze upon your beauty, I think to myself, "never have I seen an angel fly so low".

                The backdrop is fab, Dost!
                BTW, where are you guys getting these rim pin stripes from?
                I saw the same design on a couple of other bikes too

                  I got the idea from R3 forum. It's the normal rim stickers but cut in this design

                            excellent information about chain cleaning and maintenance, it can't get any better.

                              Have done 5k till now, but since last 500kms feel the front disc brake, the earlier bite is missing. Got the brake pads cleaned & slight improvement was there but still missing that sharp bite i used to get earlier. Now not feeling confident of high speed braking in emergency. Pls suggest whether the front brakes can be replaced in warranty? My FZ front disc is much more sharper & responsive thn R3, now.

                                Hi guys, one small question. I have my R15 V1 still with me which honks better than the R3. I'm planning to swap the horns. Does it void warranty? I'm dropping the R3 for first service tomorrow. If it is OK to swap horns, I'll have it done in showroom itself.

                                Thanks in advance.
                                Ride safe..
