            At what time it goes to the left, I mean at what speed?? If it's going left when bike is around 40 or lesser then it's Ok...

            My Review of Yamaha R3 at 100K ODO

            Ride a motorcycle if you want to live free, but above all ride it safe and make others' lives safe.

              The road that leads to my home is a slow road but certainly not something where I can go faster than 30Km/h
              TNT 300 has a louder fan noise the R3 is fan is very silent i have to keep my ears near the tank to hear it.
              As I gaze upon your beauty, I think to myself, "never have I seen an angel fly so low".

                  Frame nuts are just for show. They replace the rubber covers.
                  Axle sliders work like frame sliders to protect the wheel/fork in case of a fall.

                  Hey Bro, the axle sliders are about 3300 and frame nuts should be about 1100.
                  Both are from Ali Express.
                  I do have a preferred branded accessories seller in Thailand whose contact I've shared with many xBhpians.
                  If you're interested in getting something, do PM or WhatsApp me on 988571904.

                    Absolutely normal, Gollum. My KTM's would put any car's radiator fan to shame, they sound like a jet engine getting ready for a lift off, and that whine, something I personally love, people just give way when you ride slowly next to them, no horns, just the fan. Done it intentionally many a times, works like a charm. Cheap tricks!

                    The CBR's fan on the other hand is super smooth and calm, and I would the say the R3 and CBR's fan sound are on par or if not the same, from what I've experienced. But compared to the CBR, the fan of R3 is teeny tiny bit loud, especially with engine off, and the fan runs, like in your video. The CBR's fan is totally a keeper for sure in this aspect, no drama whatsoever, just a faint whine, really smooth stuff. Hondas had done a fantastic job on the cooling system on the CBR 250, excellent cooling system of any motorcycles in the scene currently.

                    I take this moment to thank Krishna Prasad and yellowspunk both who own the R3 and I was lucky to get both of their fans running albeit at a different time period, but the end result is the same.

                    Enjoy the bike mate, we in the end think too much for what's not and get get too paranoid. Your ride is all good.

                    Cheers!

                    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
                    The girl said, 'NO!'


                    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


                    THE END

                        Just finished my second service a month prior to its due date. Got my oil changed but left the filter in for another 2k kms. Engine seems to be very aggressive now and since the run in just finished, opening her up north of 10k is a seriously great experience on a freeway. I am accessorizing my R3 as well. Once more parts come in, i'll post details separately! Just 2k kms down for now and i am loving the character of the bike.

                        I do have a few comments though. The bike handles like a champ but the MRF tyres do lose grip in the rear at times. I had scary moments over wet patches where the rear started sliding around on the road at 60kmph. Had to do a bit of maneuvering to sort the rear out again. It'll feel planted but if you corner even with the slightest bit of gravel, the rear will slowly slide outside and you'll roll off a bit to keep it under control. I guess stickier tyres will definitely help.

                          what was the cost of service?
                          which oil did they change to?
                          What is the service checklist?

                            1. It costed me Rs 1480/-. The oil filter wasn't changed
                            2. Yamalube 10W 40 fully synthetic
                            3. Generic checks (oil change - if requested, clutch tension check, brake pad cleaning, chain lube, Air filter cleaning)
