    How much did you get them for?
    Crash Guard costed me ₹700 and Rear brake master cylinder protector is ₹340.

    The swing arm started making a squeaking noise. Took to ASS and the swing arm was removed and lubricated. In 3-4 hours the squeaking noise is back. Anyone else facing this issue?

            If you enter JC road from Minerva Circle you will reach Siddaih Road signal. Just after the signal (about 50m) on your right hand side you will find State Bank Of India. Next to it is a narrow road. Take right there and you will see a big Royal Enfield hoarding. That is Fixwell Motors.

                  In the above pic, it glares directly on eyes. Is it used on highways or long night rides?

                    Hi every one ,
                    I bought the Himalayan on 18th of May 2016. I have done around 450kms keeping in mind the break in process.
                    What i have notice and would like to know if anyone is also facing these issues

                    1.The exaust has turned bluish .Not exceeding 60km/h below 3000 RPM

                    2. There are vibration and noise like grrr grrr grrr during pick up from the 2nd to the 3rd gear.
                    3. OIL sweating from engine.
                    4. Tappet sound/clatter noise.
                    5. False natural light.
                    6. Gear Shift hard from the 1st to 2nd.
                    7. impossible to find natural when stationary.
                    8. Loose Chain.
                    Attaching some pics

                    Going tomorrow to the service centre and hope they solve my issues.
                    Hi,
                    Got my bike today from the first service and would like to share some observations.
                    1. They could not do anything about the exhaust colour change(anyways it does not matter)
                    2. OIL sweating has stopped.
                    3. tappet sound drastically reduced.
                    4. false natural light corrected.
                    5. Grear shift is now smooth.
                    6. Engine is performing much better. I feel by 1000 kms it will be more smoother.

                    Bike feels great now and i am enjoying the ride.

                        We would be taking The Himalayan to Chanshal Pass, which is one of the most treacherous roads, just little apprehensive about tube tyres. Earlier my friend had 200NS and other bikes are all tubeless so we were not that much concerned. Thought of getting sealant done but it would cost around 2k for both tyres. How fair are the tyres in those conditions?

                          From my test ride experience I can safely say that properly inflated Himalayan tires can take the pass with absolute ease. The knobby tires are there for a reason, they resist tearing/piercing really well as opposed to a soft compound radial. The contact patch on a radial differs from bias ply/cross ply, these being bias ply, they resist punctures and last very long. Unless the tire is cupped or bald/worn in the center patch, you shouldn't have any problems.

                          Cheers!

                          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.
