    And i have ordered an oil filter for R3 and its been 20days and still the dealer is saying that it will take 15days more is it like this in your city?
    I would usually get most of the spares readily available in my city which is chennai. Once, my R3's clutch switch was broken and i was able to get it from the SVC immediately. Oil filter is pretty basic and it should be available in most of the cities where R3's were sold

    Thats good. Glad u get Michelin tyres in stock size. My CBR's Apollo tyres have completed 17k kms. I'm thinking to use MRF tyres next time bcoz of stock tyre size. Loved Alpha H1's performance.
    I would recommend not to go for MRF's on performance oriented bikes.
    I've recently saw a new model from Apollo tyres, called Tramplr XR. Seems to be block pattern tyres with H speed rating and steel radials. It's available in both 140 and 150. Next time I would definitely go for this since I do some offroading during my trips. If you are not a fan of dual purpose tyres, i would recommend michellin or pirellis.

    SO, I got the delivery of my R3 on Dec 28th ! I got the Matt Black version.
    Got the delivery from Perfect Riders, Jayanagar.

    Will not say the process was awesome.
    Up to the point of buying the bike, everything was great, great attention too.
    However, was left very unsatisfied with the PDI.

    It felt like the bike was not washed, there was literally dust all over the seat.
    And a feeling of dread, I felt like I was given the bike that was on display when I first went.

    Which meant that, whenever they were showcasing the bike, they were cranking the accelerator like there is no tomorrrow !
    Had to stop him when he displayed this to me the first time, he cranked it all the way to 5k rpm from a cold start so that "I could feel the engine"!!!

    Further issues in the PDI, they were impatient with my checklist and the items I was checking.
    no comments on asking them to open and show the oil/liquid levels. Got only 3l of petrol too, barely.

    Luckily, went to the petrol pump nearby, and that's where Blackthorn's PDI list came handy

    The tyre pressure was 11 on both wheels!!! vs. a recommended f 29 and 33.

    I then got a long ride back home in the fantastic Bengaluru mid day traffic.
    Had to navigate through traffic.

    Few observations, i felt the clutch is rather not stiff for a bike that doesnt have a slipper clutch, definitely alright to be using it for 30m of slow moving traffic.
    That said, my bike has a lot of vibrations, I can feel it all the way up to 3rd gear.

    There also seems to be quite a "click" when the gear engages (after i release the clutch lever).
    hope these 2 issues get resolved after the first service.

    The bike itself is a hoot, and I get so much attention on the streets (I dont prefer this, but its nice to get a "OH!" look from the ones that know the bike).

    Had 3 false neutrals within like 5 minutes after i had ridden in the traffic for 45 minutes. The engine heat does pilfer a lot to your legs.

    But an injury while playing football means I haven't touched the bike since! :|

    Sold my bike a few days back. Could cover only 4500 kms due to a combination of Corona lockdowns and rains lately.
    Got a decent deal but having a small twinge of sadness that I could only use it for 4500 kms. Spent a lot on the riding gear too.

    Took perfect care for run in and all and never pushed it beyond since the 3rd service.
    sigh.

    Thanks everyone, been a good few kms here

Bill amount was 13.5k for the pair which was highly disappointing, but had no other way. These dealers are making use of the demand for 140 radials and selling it overpriced. But one thing which keeps bugging my mind is that the rear one is 2020 manufactured tyre, Hope it doesn't affect the performance as the shelf life is around 5 years.

    Has anyone installed saddle stay in their R3. I enquired many auto accessory shops here in Chennai and no luck for R3. For customisation, I'm asked to leave my bike with them for a week and that too it's not in my city. Is anyone making saddle stays specifically for R3. Appreciate your help.

But I want next tyre replacement to be of stock size - 140/70R-17. But there r very few options in that size.
    I've also same purpose of highway touring with crusing speed btwn 90-110.

    Hello R3 Riders,

    I've been riding my R3 from 2018 September. The stock metzelers laster for around 13k kms for me and then I changed to Apollo Alpha H1(it was launched newly at that time with a lucrative price tag). I'm very much happy with the performance it offered. But I always have this strange feeling that I'm missing something with the 140/70 offered. Now it's time for me to change the Alpha H1 as it has completed around 18k kms. Any good suggestions on 140 section radials. Not interested on Pirelli diablo Rosso II due to its price and life span. I've heard about mrf masseter but not much about someone using it on R3. If anyone has used it on R3, can you please share your experience. My purpose is purely touring on highways and ghats mostly. Cruising speed will be 100 to 120 and occasional speed bursts like 150 to 170.

    Thanks in advance

    I think you are from India. So here's a lil news: Yamaha discontinued the last-gen R3 in India after the implementation of BS6 emission norms on April 1, 2020. It was available for INR 3.52 lakhs before being discontinued.

    I saved these pics in my mobile and search every shop in my area. But none of them had it. Then I had to make it myself & with a little help of my friend. Damn, that was hard as I never did this kind of work before and my friend was making fun of me as I was struggling. Damn, I wanted to nulls clash with him at that point. Anyway, I successfully made this handle or rail and now it's easy for my grandpa to sit behind me and taking its support. Love you for the idea bro.

    Infact dealers ask upfront 1L booking amount (non-refundable) incase the buyer cancels the booking. Another thing is what i believe is that black being a slow moving color, the company may be pushing dealers to sell black stating blue out of stock, but all this is just an assumption..
    Kawasaki is superb...best..Fam..Am fan...!
