    Hello everyone, I am facing issue in my 2015 sf. My bike leans to the left. If I let go of the handle bars while riding, the bike moves to left instead of going straight.
    Service centre recommends changing fork stem which costs RS 3,500.
    Has anyone faced this issue? Need help here.

    Anyone has issues with the electric start ?
    My electric start stopped working when the bike is less than 6 months old.
    I took it with the dealer to fix it under warranty. They said, they cleaned something in the switch and it started working and I was charged for this.
    Now after about a month the issue started again. The electric start occasionally works. Sometimes I had to press few times and it works and sometimes it doesn't.
    Happens even after driving it for a while so nothing to do with cold engine or anything.

    Hey everyone! Has anyone tried the CEAT Zoom rad at the rear end of the bike?
    I am due a rear tyre change and the only available options in 140/60/R-17 are the stock MRF Revz or the CEAT Zoom.

    You should look at Apolo Alpha H1 as well, people who have used them swear by its quality, read the reviews for the 150 section one at Amazon.
    apollo ALPHA S1 130/70 R17 62H Steel Belted Radial Tubeless Rear Tyre https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07VRS5F47/..._ZFv0Db8MCP8VQ
    It's a brand new tyre and is rated for speeds upto 270 kmph, so you can image the quality of the tyre.

    If those two are your options, you're better off getting the RevZ. Ceat Zoom has a lot of quality control issues and in my personal usage experience on a friend's Hornet, it has wobbling issues, skidding on moderate sandy surface and side profile went to the ridiculous extent of brittling out and deforming the tyre. If you can order online, go for the Michelin or Apollo H1. H1 is a medium compound and will offer better grip compared to Ceat or Michelin. But Rev Z would be my personal preference among the lot.

    MRF RevZ is my stock tyre and there is still decent amount of tread left as I've only run 25000 kms. The only reason I am thinking of changing the tyre is because it tends to puncture a lot and I've had more than 8 punctures in the last 2 years and there are still 4 that need to be plugged.
    I thought of CEAT Zoom because someone told ne that it is a harder compound tyre and hence doesn't get punctured easily but comes at a slight cost of road grip.

    When you buy a bike like that, consider grip to be an important factor. 8 punctures in 2 years isn't bad. I must have far more than that. And who says that hard compound tyres don't get punctured? They have their fair share of those. You could try TVS Eurogrips (if budget is your concern) or MRF Zapper S. Zapper costs as much as a Ceat Zoom but performs better than it. If you can shell extra bucks, go for the Apollo Alpha. It gives excellent grip. Personally tested a set of Apollo Tyres on my bike (Actizip & Actigrip; F &R).

    I'm not saying that harder tyres don't get punctured, all I am saying is that the MRF RevZ is more susceptible to punctures. I'm saying this because mine got punctured even
    I don't want to change the tyre size, that's why I opted both Apollo or Michelin out.
    I've crossed Changla with both tyres flat (not bragging btw ), so I think I can make it work with the lesser grippy CEAT tyre if it offers better durability and puncture resistance.
    I didn't know TVS offers 140/60 tyre, so will have to do some digging on it.

    I recently changed both front and rear tyres to Michelin Pilot Sporty. After the installation i feel vibrations in handle bar as well as right foot peg and brake pedal. Also when I start and move the bike, I feel a slight wobble.

    Michelin has 140/70 - 17 tyres for rear. Does that make any difference? Never experienced this much vibrations before in my bike. Front tyre is 100/80 - 17, which is fine. Appreciate any help or suggestions. Thanks.
