    Everything on the bike is under warranty for the period given by them. You can claim insurance, and get it replaced. Though it has to be genuine tire defect and not user induced crack or something. They will try to ward you off saying, this and that, but insist that this is a tire defect and get it changed under warranty.

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    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.

    Mate, I'm not sure if it'd sound cheesy to congratulate you for your purchase this late(though I feel for you) and with the given unfortunate troubles that you had to face with the bike but I'd like to commend you on 'following the instructions laid in the manual by the company during the break in period'! The real engineers know what they are doing and are hired for their skills to make motorcycles in 'real factories'.

    You see, unlike what certain rookie boys would have you believe, I have come across a good lot cases(you can search for yourself too) while browsing about videos and articles where Royal Enfields and other brand service centers have counter argued against owners for reckless handling of the bike during the run in period. Something that allows them to wash their hands off of issues such as yours at the very first tier of addressal (at the workshop). Therefore, it would be a good measure to insist upon having done your due diligence during the run in period in case you are escalating this issue to the customer service of RE. They need to know this! From what I have heard and read, the company has been taking customer complaints seriously ever since their 1st Gen Himalayan issues and have been working towards exceeding customer expectations.

    So you might be better off contacting the company straight away instead of ending up in a tussle with the workshop employees. Mind you, it's a pretty similar story across brands when it comes to our 'Desi style workshops'(barring some). On a lighter note, I always steer clear of cocky bush mechanics offering life coaching on forums. The internet and the job market is unfortunately pouring with some very difficult chumps who are choking the wits out of everything they lay their brains over.

    Anyway, keep the updates flowing on your case and I wish you good luck!


    PS - Liked the looks of your decked up Himalayan! Cheers!

    A great post to be honest. You'd be hard pressed to know for the fact that the cocky ones get to rule the roost, especially when it comes to inner part of RE, unfortunately, keeping it for RE now. Along the same vein, there are pretty adept and deft mechanics hidden from the mainstream, who are to be found in places you'd least expect. For one, RE has to get their wits together, especially when it comes to proactively replacing things under "warranty". You'd be hard pressed to know even with things under warranty, it's an extreme pain to the posterior to get them sorted, replaced. Instead of taking the complaints "seriously" (pun intended), if they can give heed to the complaints and work on it practically and proactively, that'd solve most of the niggling and nagging issues both for the vehicle and the customer.

    Cheers!

    Things like the head gasket (if I remember it correctly) for an Interceptor 650 being replaced for free for a customer in Delhi whereas it was charged to customers in other towns (1st service - under warranty). Or this Fakira Riders video from 2017 on Youtube where the service centre has been reported ( timestamp 11:45 ) as having confessed to inherent mechanical issues troubling each RE model (pre 650s).




    RE is well known to the average Indian consumer in many such ways. Not sure what the inner part of RE is though (if you mean the management?). They say that as long as the accountants don’t poke noses into the R&D, things get better.

    But yeah, the cocky bush mechanics thrive and rule the roost by dragging you down to the idle talks and mischievous references and I am very sure these aren’t engineers. A person that I am acquainted with have had good service from RE (the bush mechanic’s town) and is very happy with it. He reported the workshop manager as being courteous and helpful in sorting the issues (not necessarily universal). In the same breath, I’m not sure about my money. Very true B7ackthorn, we know well of some Zen like carburettor tuning geniuses for instances in Mumbai who specialize in old cars. These are the kind of "actual mechanics" that remind you of those unheard-of Japanese master engine builders and tuners hiding away from limelight. These aren’t bush mechanics!

    Clutch plates should last a good 30-40k kms for normal usage and can wear out earlier if it was used harshly. They are not costly, may be around 2.5-3k I think. Clutch can also slip if you changed the oil to a low viscosity not in its range.

    I have had a Himalayan since 2016. I have disregarded the issues I have had with the bike (water seepage into fuel tank, bike cutting off while idling, alternator getting burnt and needing replacement, random rusting of parts) because I have loved the ride. It is an absolute pleasure, in city traffic, highways and rural roads, and the bike tends to become one with you. I love that it has power on tap when revved, and the bike is more than sufficiently powered for my riding style.

    My biggest issue with the Himalayan is that it is not a reliable bike after a certain age. There is an informal code of conduct amongst the new generation of Bullet owners - dispose off your new bike after using it for three years (which will be akin to blasphemy to the erstwhile clique of Bullet riders, painstakingly utilising weekend after weekend, year after year tinkering away the faults and niggles on their grand ole Bullets) - and I do believe it holds true for the Himalayan too. The magnetic alternator coil burning off, to the sudden wobbling in the bike, which may be due to the steering stem beam giving up, to God knows what will conk off next. The first two years were a pleasure to own and ride the Himalayan, but I am dreading what will happen to the bike after crossing the magic '3' number
