    I have fitted KTM Duke 390 mirrors. Trust me, they are more solid, gives more view & looks good than the stock mirrors on Himalayan. Initially, I too had considered Dominar's mirrors. But as you said, I don't know how it will fit. So bought ktm for ₹448 for a pair & it was easy to fit.
    But, be careful when you try to fit the mirrors in the hole.
    I just rotated the left side mirror in the opposite direction and the threads in the hole(yoke) of the handlebar were stripped. And I made a complete mess which caused the whole threads wiped out. And I had to replace the whole yoke with lever. My bad!!!

    Hi All, I needed an opinion on this one.
    My bike is just 15 months old and my battery gave up 2 months ago.
    I got it charged and was all fine until a week ago when I cranked the engine after 10 days. The engine came back to life and I had kept it for idling and 30 secs later it stopped.
    Tried cranking again but it wouldn't start and took the battery for charging.
    Installed the battery and tried to start and it wouldn't start. The battery guy checked the reading and it showed 8.something and he said the battery is unable to hold the charge. I got it charged for another 6 years and the reading showed 10.
    Spoke to RE service centre and they have asked me to bring it with the insurance and RC copy .
    Now is it normal for the battery to behave this way in a matter of 15 months. But I will admit that my usage had reduced considerably due to the lockdown but I used to ensure I am either idling it or taking it for a short spin every week.

    Hm that is a decent brand should not have given up on you like that, did you check whether the bike is charging the battery at all ?

    If all of that is ok, could you state what did you mean by non usage for 15 months that the bike was kept idle even without starting the motor once? if so then through storage the battery simply drained out, if you plan to store like that in the future, disconnect the battery.

    Hi all! Today, I tried to remove the tank of my bike to install mobile charger. I saw in many videos there are two hoses under the tank, one for EVAP & another for water overflow drainage. But in my bike(BS6), I saw only EVAP hose. There is no overflow hose. But there is an outlet under the tank for it. Is that how it is supposed to be in the bs6 models?

    I also removed tank to install mobile charger & there are two hose pipes in my bs6 himalayan. That is not supposed to be and there should be two hose pipes underneath the fuel tank.

    Thanks for the reply! And I am confused now. Maybe the outlet hose was got disconnected in my tank? But even though I haven't saw any pipe/hose hanging down on the chasis! I even checked after fitting the tank for any hanging wires/hoses! Tomorrow, I will once again remove the tank, check it and will update here!

    Meanwhile, I found this video on YT about a bs6 owner complaining about waterlogging in the tank cap. And he uses a pipe to drain the water out. But, since it's in Hindi, I can't understand whether he used a separate third party hose to drain the water. Here's the link

    Was it Amaron or was it Exide stock?

    The tank has two outlet provisions, one for EVAP and the other drainage. If you just see an open metal nipple, it might perhaps be the the tube that connects to it might be disconnected. And as the other Bhpian posted in the pic, that's how it's supposed to be.

    Cheers!

    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
