    If it is from console and happens when the bike is moving then but must be the speedo cable. Pour some oil. The cable rotates with the front wheel. Due to rust it becomes tight. Oiling should solve the problem.

    There is no mechanical cable rotating inside the speedometer console in the Himalayan, the sensor is all electric and the entire speedometer console is driven by small motors on the speedo and RPM through the speed sensor in the front wheel. The tuk tuk tuk sound isn't normal, and a speedometer motor is too small to make such noises. The noise should be from somewhere else. Check your front mudguards, fork braces for proper tightness and torque.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    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.


    THE END

    Hi guys,

    I am planning to buy a Royal Enfield Himalayan. I have gone through the thread and see various issues etc. posted by members. My usage is mostly in the city with frequent short (within 500 kms one way) rides. I am 5'6" and of stocky built. I need a bike with a comfortable ride quality to negotiate the potholes in city as well as bad roads on long rides. I want to know whether Himalayan will fit the bill for me. I currently ride an Apache 200 4v.

    I suggest that you go and do an extensive test ride. I have the Himalayan BS4 2019. But I am 5'11" and on the fluffy side when it comes to tipping the scales.
    Knowing your bike is necessary and many comments about its performance surface from lack of knowledge as well.
    The ride is just great, but the seat is not supporting my weight as much as it should. Otherwise no complaints.
    It managed to keep a steady 110+ speed on NH highways and 80+ on state roads (fully loaded, 2 panniers loaded and 1 overnight bag in the backseat, me and a tank bag). No loss of breath at all.

    Thanks for the inputs. I have taken two test rides yet. I liked the seating position and the ride quality. My only concern is the issues reported. I am planning to rent a Himalayan for a couple of days and do a long ride to get a better idea about the bike.

    Hello Guys, observed in my Himalayan FI ABS 2019 ver, 2nd service done. Thought of asking whether this is normal behavior or an issue.

    It happens like this.
    Run the bike in say 1st gear at a constant 20kph speed /around 3000rpm. Do not change the speed/rpm. Felt as if the bike is struggling for fuel or air, as if its hesitating, but does not stops. (same feeling when reserve starts in carb engine).

    Same can be seen in 2nd gear at around 40kph. So this happens at a particular constant rpm.
    However , have not seen in top gears.

    Also, if I increase/keep increasing the rpm in any gear, motor behaves absolutely normal, no hesitation in moving ahead and just goes smoothly.

    Has anyone seen the same in theirs.

    RESC says
    This is normal in all FI engine and it is due to the fuel spray. Not seen in Carb.

    Please share your views.
    Thank you.

    Yes, this is normal, the gear ratio is slightly high in 1st and 2nd. Carb model fares better in this respect.

    Hello everyone, Well i had been not an active member on this forum, and sorry for being that! As of now I own 2009 FZ16 and RE Himalayan ABS Stealth Black. Prior to my Himalayan, I had Classic 350 Ash, which was doing great but was giving some trouble due to vibration, which periodically damaged my aux lights. Hence I planned to switch for better tour oriented machine, I looked forward to Duke 390 & RE Himalayan ABS, and finally fell for REH, because KTM after sales service was not present where I live. So on November 2018, I got the keys, and followed strict instruction for breaking period of engine. I January 2019 I rode to Kolkata, my home city added some extra lighting and mounting arrangement for top box and panniers returned back to Jajpu/Odisha and again a week later hit to Vizag, some 600Kms ride, did Araku and returned back to my place. The bike did pretty well till June. As the monsoon started, One very fine day while ridding to my work all of a sudden the bike started decelerating while throttling, and in few seconds it regained its power and gave me a sudden jerk. As days passed, the issue kept on repeating more and more, and now added with start issue. I had to keep on firing the start button and pulling throttle to rev engine. I brought the bike to ASC and they said that I was filling the fuel tank to its max capacity and hence it was causing this issue, they suggested to fill only half tank and not more than that.. So from then onward, I followed the same, but the issue remained intact. Later ASC guy took the bike and kept with them to study the behavior, and after doing so, they changed the fuel valves and and did general service and claimed the problem is resolved. The very same day I again faced the similar problem of engine stalling during ride and refusal to start after stall. After that I did some homework over internet, and found some solution on this XBHP forum and you tube related to Evap fuel canister. Went again to ASC, re-routed the Evap Fuel Line and chipping the mouth of tubes for both overspil and evap fuel. The bike did pretty well for half day but again to my fear it stalled the very same day with persistent engine starting issue. I have a ride in November to Mumbai and in February to Bhutan. I have heavily invested my savings my leaves to make it happen all this year. ASC guys seems not be serious anymore, and i'm getting clueless for its solution. I cant go on trip with this problem.
    CAN ANYONE HELP ME ON THIS??
    Hey buddy, sorry to hear that you are facing such issues with a new bike itself. Did it get resolved btw?

    Maybe i'm wrong, but i feel its some dirt here or there. Try getting everything cleaned (carb, filters, engine). A similar issue when faced on my pulsar got corrected by cleaning... they put a engine cleaner and fuel cleaner oil in the engine which i think helped.

    I am facing a similar issue in my avenger and the SVC guys say that the engine oil is leaking inside the engine reaching to the spark plugs and jamming them after a while. For temporary solutions whenever i had faced that issue, i was getting the spark plugs cleaned so their theory kinda seemed right to me.
    However, they suggested to open the engine which would cost 7k-14k depending on the pandora's box.
