    End result-It definitely helps-instead of the usual 4-6 stalls in heavy traffic,the bike stalled just once yesterday and twice today.
    Kindly note my EVAP pipe has been checked and has no kinks to block it-but the tank pressure whoosh was not eradicated and hence prompted this surgery to avoid the irritating low speed stalling .
    Fingers crossed -expecting long term allevation of the problem
    I've never had water draining near the neck filler cap, I make sure the routes are always inspected and cleaned, that's one. The vehicle missing/stalling happens extremely rarely, but yes, it does happen, it has to with the fuel itself clogging the breather tube, way down the line. I always make sure it is cleaned and the bike performs brilliantly. Secondly, the swoosing happens due to insufficient tank vent at the cap side, try cutting the rubber O ring underneath the fuel cap where there is a small hole under the fuel tank cap, it solved mine.

    @B7ACKTHORN ,did not feel the need to cut the rubber o-ring washer and compromise it's integrity-the hole vent passage is cast into the cap body leading to the 2-way vent that i took out.Any which ways,the purpose seemed to be working-the bike is finally having a stable cold idle,stalls in slow speed traffic and crawling are down by 75%,and most importantly the engine does not shut off after any hard/emergency braking -so yeah,objective achieved .

    Wonderful, as long as it serves the purpose, Safeena is hiccup free.

    The bike was standing in a 1hour long downpour outside my office-from the hiccups and stalls she gave on the way back home,seems she didn't like it one bit.I will have to check the tank for any water ingress -n I just got the tank filled to the brim today itself-so fingers crossed

    I would suggest you disconnect the EVAP system temporarily and see how it fares. I would strongly recommend it on a trial and error basis. It mainly has to do with the fuel vent line towards the left side of the bike that drains the fuel/vapor into the EVAP canister and the opposite of that goes to the intake manifold via a solenoid. I would suggest you remove both these lines temporarily at the EVAP canister points, vent it to atmosphere and see observe.

    Strongly worth a try. Keep your observations posted.

    @B7ACKTHORN , what if I vent the fuel vent pipe from the fuel tank to the atmosphere at or slightly above the handlebar level and seal off the airbox vent pipe completely and junk the EVAP system-as it is my EVAP system is now useless as the breather valve from the tank cap has been removed???

    Yup, that is good idea. But, in case fuel vapors get converted to liquid, it's better they drain than they made stagnant in the tubes. On the other aspect of it, yes you can seal the intake routing from the EVAP cansister, and see if Safeena breathes well.

    Good luck. Keep us posted.

    Hello Bikers, need your suggestion for Himalayan headlight. Low beam is bright enough but not happy with headlight performance on highway. High beam focus is too high with the factory fitted halogen. Tried changing extreme vision and one other halogen, but still the same focus.
    Please share if you have installed any LED bulb which is bright enough for highway, or any specific halogen bulb which you have installed and can provide accurate high beam focus on the road.
    I do not prefer to add any extra light, looking for just a bulb replacement in the same factory dome.

    Thanks.

    About stock lights

    I think, headlight is too weak when compared to an ADV, i have gone for extra LED by HJG! 60w each
    As you said, you don't want to add extra lights. There is an LED ie NIGHTEYE headlight bulb replacement,has a good throw and consumes less battery!
    I will be going in for that headlight as i cannot turn my extra LED's on, thats too bright for cities and will blind people.
