    Same here. I adjusted it one notch softer. It feels better than before but I need it to be softer. I might take it to 1.
    I found out Bajaj uses a standard fork oil supplied by HP. I think shifting to a 5W might help.
    No matter how many mods you have on, Always remember, there's no Replacement for Displacement !

    I am again saying and would keep saying it playing with front suspension would spoil the handling and composer of bike.

    Then why would high end forks have adjustment for preload, compression damping and rebound damping? All Independently. Basically to get the bike to handle and behave according to your likes. So changing oil or spring stiffness is the only adjustments that can be done on a low end fork like Dominar's. A google search would throw up a lot of discussion on this. AV8TOR let us know the result of the lighter oil.

    Those forks are designed to be working like that, so that there can be scope for adjustments and load settings. But if you lower the grade of fork oil in the oe forks of a front heavy bike you would only achieve increased amount of nose dive and nervous handling in corners.
    You need to change springs also and employe other means like dampers etc to make it adjustable.
    On the high end forks both forks works independently and have different functions.

    Liking the discussion so far. Just my bit. I think it's the thickness and angle of the front forks that is not right for dominar on bumpy roads.
    I have observed that rumble strips are especially jarring as compared to other bikes. I have had other owners mention the same.
    I also noticed that I to slow down much more that other non dominar bikers for speed brakers. This again due to the a jarring impact when the wheel hits the bump.

    Hi guys I went to test ride the dominar yesterday test bike had Done around 2500 Kms when I tried to achieve speed in 4th gear after hitting 80 85 kmph the revs just suddenly lowered .I was trying to overtake but the revs just lowered. think it was the rev limiter but then if I want to overtake in 4th or third at a particular speed does it mean I can't do it on this bike or will the rev limiter come off automatically .I'm planning to buy the bike next month upgrading from a pulsar 200 ug3 .kindly help guys

    Mostly test ride bikes are ill treated, that could be the case.

    This is the throttle lag which is present in early batch bikes but now it is resolved with fresh ecu update. Could be possible that the td bike is from the first lot and the ecu is still not updated. U don't worry, have few more test rides at different dealerships then decide.
