    Stock MRFs are ok but according to me it's doesn't justice the overall bike's potential. Michelins are good but not best, if you want best performance switch to metz or pirelli rosso 2. Set of michelins costs 9k.

      The issue with pirelli they are soft compound and have a higher chance to puncture,but fantastic tyres , with the best grip

        I have used Perelli angels GT they are the best tyres i have come across for dry and wet conditions. Its good for cornering too.

          If my bike is off even I get the same. On almost all the gears. There is nothing wrong with the Bike.
          If the engine is running, release the clutch a little to get the gear to change.
          If the engine is off, move a bit forward or back and then the gear will change.

          I've noticed that gear changes are really good at higher RPM's or when the wheels are moving fast enough.

          So my bike is around 1600Kms old on the tyres, will the dealer take the old tyres or do I keep them as show piece?

              My black R3 reads 1000+ on the ODO. I have been facing the infamous left side pulling issue in my motorcycle. There is also quite a bit of vibration at 6000 RPM.
              The service center couldn't fix the left side drifting issue. Planning to raise the issue with the people at Yamaha as this issue has been there from day 1.

                  While driving for a long period > 30 mins in a highway I started developing pain in my right arm and shoulder. So I tried taking my hands off the handle bar. The vehicle immediately started going towards the left. I tried this at multiple speeds 50 , 90, 120 etc on the highway in smooth tarmac the vehicle moves towards the left.

                  Update: I have raised the concern at the Yamaha customer care.

                      Almost half of my radiator fins are gone
                      Here are some photos of my radiator after first service at Vinayak Yamaha.
                      I gave it for second service yesterday and I'm gonna compare if there are more bent fins.

                        Did you highlight it to the service center? Is the service center taking responsibility for it? Try calling the customer care of Yamaha (1800-420-1600), it really helps a lot.
                        After I raised my concerns, The people at Yamaha were calling me the whole of yesterday evening to get my issues sorted out. Today I have a meeting with the engineers from Yamaha.

                          You should have told them not to pressure wash near radiator area and mention this point in job card. Normally all SVCs neglect this but it's the owner who have to take these things off. You should have told them there only after seeing the bend radiator fins.

                            This is the result of pressure wash jet directly hitting the radiator. Sorry mate noting can be done now other than not making it further worse.

                            P.S. DO NOT quote the entire picture set while quoting, edit them accordingly.

                                My question exactly. I might just get a new radiator and get it covered with a radiator guard from day 1.
                                This one is pretty much toast.
