    I have not seen/heard anybody using aftermarket accessories but I just made a quick research and got these inputs.

    1. Pics shown by RE has crash guards, I dont think this will be available as aftermarket but RE might sell in some days/month (no idea about that), refer below pic

    2. I found an article talking about the aftermarket accessories

    Next day after 1st service, I did a 320km ride with a pillion to Mandya (70km before Mysore)

    While going there, there was a heavy traffic for 5-8kms, couldn't go above 2nd gear, which made me miss my Unicorn. It was not that hard so somehow I managed it.
    In the plain road it Himalayan cruised really well and got enough power to race with 500cc REs. After a stressful handling in the traffic, engine started giving clattering sound. The sound stopped after a 10 mins of break, from then I started giving 10mins of break after every 75km to 100km.

    On the way back there was huuuuuge traffic for around 15-20kms, I took the side mud road of the Tarmac where other vehicles struggle to ride but Himalayan just flew over the stones and broken muddy roads, which saved me an hour of time.

    I think the 2nd service would be after 5000 or 10,000kms, can anybody confirm this?

    Yes this seems correct but how will it judge the amount of fuel consumed. Also if kmpl is written then it is fuel consumption. Will confirm when i get mine. Only TD bikes available in Nagpur. Not a single delivery yet. May be they will sort out initial niggles and then launch country wide.

    We are missing something here. It can't be that low. God knows. Even RE showroom guys have no idea had called them. Will have to check personally.

    Maybe the accuracy will improve over time.

    I still cant understand how come the 15W50 Liquid Gun oil can sustain upto 5000kms (next service interval).

    He got a normal seat cover for both the seats, I will be installing the leg guards on the his Himalayan this weekend.

    Some issues we faced :
    1) Its a tough job getting the neutral, and downshifting from 2 to 1
    2) The oil marks were there in these 3days, hope now they will reduce.
    3) The mileage it showed was 16/17 in city and 26/27 in highway 60kmph-80kmph riding, hope it gets little better after the service.
    1) Oil change won't be done at 5000km. Only top-up. But I suggest you to get the oil change done. I will be doing an oil change at 2500km again. Don't want to take any chances.
    2) Gears are hard. Nothing to worry about it.
    3) Its not the mileage that is shown in the speedo meter. Its Kmph. I don't know how it calculates that low speed!! Nobody knows for that matter. Not even RE engineers.

    I got a crash guard (like the one in the picture from another post but black in color)& rear disc brake master cylinder guard installed. Got them from authorized RE spares dealer in Bangalore. Crash guard is 3rd party. Master cylinder guard is RE original accessory. Will be posting the pics soon.

    The screw holding chain guard and saree guard are never checked properly I guess. Not even in the first service. Even I faced this issue of a screw falling off. Visited the RE ASS and rectified this. Checked all the screws and nuts & bolts. Also informed them to keep a check on this and inform the company about this fault.

    If you enter JC road from Minerva Circle you will reach Siddaih Road signal. Just after the signal (about 50m) on your right hand side you will find State Bank Of India. Next to it is a narrow road. Take right there and you will see a big Royal Enfield hoarding. That is Fixwell Motors.

    The crash gaurd looks good Manjith. I've been waiting to fit one on mine too, but neither of the dealers here in Faridabad has got any of the accessories for Himalayan yet.

    How much did you get them for?
