    Go to a place where they do Automobile painting and ask their opinion. Moreover ask this question on various kawasaki threads, ninja comes in the same shade and people there must have gotten rid of scratches.

    Yeah dukes are smoother than dominar...... May due to some technical difference in their engines.

    Planning to install bar risers next.Opinions about which brand is best.I have seen ones by lluvia.But feel it's costly at 1k inr.

    Has anyone switched to EBC pads for the rear brakes ?
    Is there substantial or marginal difference ?

    Hi Xbhpians,

    SOME QUARANTINE TIPS FOR YOUR DOMINAR

    1. CLEAN YOUR BIKE EVERY DAY IF POSSIBLE COVER IF IT IS PARKED OUTSIDE

    2. START YOUR MACHINE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY

    3. BEFORE STARTING SIT ON THE BIKE HOLD IT IN 90 DEGREE POSITION AS ON CENTRE STAND FOR A MIMUTE OR HALF IT WILL LEVEL THE OIL ACROSS THE ENGINE AS WE ALL KNOW DOMINAR HAS SIDE STAND ONLY

    4. START AND KEEP IT IDLE FOR A MIN.

    5. AFTER WARM UP PRESS THE CLUTH FEW TIMES AS IT HELPS THE OIL TO GO THROUGH ALL THE WET PLATES. (MAKE IT DAILY HABBIT IMPROVES CLUTCH LIFE AND REDUCES THAT THUD OR JERK NOISE ON THE VERY FIRST GEAR IN MORNING).

    6. REVV. THE ENGINE LIGHTLY NOT MORE THAN 3K TO 4K RPM FEW TIMES AS IT IMPROVES OIL PRESSURE AND HELPS TO CIRCULATE OIL THROUGHOUT THE ENGINE.

    7. IF POSSIBLE RIDE 5 TO 8 METRES TO AVOID FLAT SPOTS ON TIRES.

    8. AND DO CHECK THE PRESENCE OF RODENTS LIKE RATS AND SQUIRRELS AROUND YOUR BIKE KEEP THE AREA AROUND YOUR BIKE NEAT AND CLEAN AS THEY ARE ATTRACTED TOWARDS FOOD AND LEFTOVERS.

    9. PARK IN SAFE AND SHADED AREA


    THANKS.

    Just want to warn you not to install a baggage rack fixed with only 4 bolts on the pillion handlebar brackets.
    One of our Ukrainian Dominar owners made this and after 1300 kms of riding with 3 kg topbox his tail frame got almost completely destroyed (see the attached picture).
    If you want to install the baggage system then you need to envisage at least two additional pivots under the tail frame, for example, at the passenger footpegs. This will distribute the load force between all the pivots and preserve the pillion handlebars brackets from cracks.

    I don't intend to use a topbox ,I want the rack to rest the pillion's backpack.So that strain is not into entirely on the shoulder.But you're saying a 3kg topbox can do this to the rear end?

    Please see how close to each other the bolts for the pillion handlebars are and how big the shoulder of the back baggage carrier is. Add the weight of the carrier itself, the topbox and the stuff in it. Consider also the state of the roads where you drive - in Ukraine the are lots of bumpy and potholed ones. Altogether it highers the chances to destroy the small brackets under the pillion handlebars made of the soft steel.

    Question Re: Bajaj Dominar 400 Ownership Experience Thread

    Hi guys!
    I ride Bajaj Dominar 400 2020.
    Due to the quarantine, service center in my city is temporary closed, so I'm going to do the first maintenance (after 500 kms) by myself.
    In owner's manual there is note about cleaning EVAP drain tube.
    Can someone explain me what is that and how to clean it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just wait for the lock down to end and then get it serviced at the company only, till then you won't be able to ride so it doesn't matter. Just do the cleaning and polishing work till then
    Peace
