Earlier during service, the svc guys asked to get engine flush and decarbonization, for which I said no. I thought that is not needed with only 12k run.

    Also, I felt rear suspension was little too hard, so asked the svc mechanic to make it softer, But it seems he made it more stiff. How should it be turned to make softer? Clockwise or anticlockwise (while looking from above)? He had done it anticlockwise.
    Vikas, just check if the valves need readjustment. Or tappets need to be reset. Some Honda asc are a pain. Better to have a well known mechanic. Is there any change in fuel efficiency?

    the bike sounds rough in 2nd and 3rd gear and there are also some vibrations.the issue arises after i have driven for about 5 km.
    what could be the reason for this?

    Had been on a 400km ride yesterday. I liked the way she behaved on the highway. Constant 80-100 isn't a problem at all. I got a fuel efficiency of about 55. The bike never feels sluggish on the highway. Some pics:

    The gearbox takes a while to become smooth. Maybe that's the case here. Let's hope it gets sorted out.

    Yes, The spark Plug was changed. However, the mechanic said later it was not necessar to change as the spark plug was fine. I have kept this old one, just in case I need it in emergency.

    Gave the bike to ASC today. the mechanic there was also saying probably tappet sating needs to be checked. However, their usual reaction is that it is normal for engine to sound after few kms of riding, and I know that, but it wasn't this bad earlier. it had certainly become too harsh and changing gear also became too much harsh. Lets see if they can resolve the issue...

    BTW does anyone knows some good Honda bike mechanics in Thane/Mumbai?

    Regards,

    They adjusted tappet and also the tuned up for mileage improvement .. it seems to have worked. Engine harshness has reduced significantly. It still happens sometimes, but very infrequently. The mileage also has improved. 49 kmpl with very harsh riding. Earlier, I would have got about 40.
