    payeng, if u remember, i had an issue with the NGK Irridium Spark plugs. It wasn't sparking properly even with the proper specs being put in the correct sides.

    Found out later that the issue was the ECU. The ECU had gone kaput the same time i was changing the plugs. Therefore, lot of misfire, non-idle, engine-off probs during that time.

    At 600 Kms the bike should be almost as good as new..

    This is what I would suggest:

    • Get a comprehensive test ride of the bike

    • Check for smoothness of pick up (the P220 picks up quite smoothly from speeds of 35-40 kmph in top gear)

    • Since it is 600 kms run, the bike is ideally in the running in period, therefore do not rip the bike

    • Check for chassis balance- The bike should ideally remain in a straight line and shouldn't veer towards right/left

    • Check the Front/Rear Suspension for rebound/damping

    • Look out for any funny noise

    Ok so its not the NGK's..

    By the way, how satisfied are you with the after sales service that you have been getting? Also I hope the replacement is being covered under warranty.

    94,000 - 78,000= a saving of 16,000K ..!!
    Looks to be a very good deal (provided the bike is really in good shape)..

    Don't forget to spend the 16K saved in a good branded Helmet, Riding Jacket and a pair of Leather gloves..!!

    am pretty satisfied with the after sales service. Khivraj sevicemen are well versed with the problems that P220 might get. And yes Payeng, everything is being covered uinder warranty. Even the breakdown service.

    well had gone today to get the ecu replaced and guess what the new ecu didnt even fire up the bike and the diag tool refused to acknowledge it as a ecu. well they put the old one back again. i now have to stay with the old ecu now for 15 more days, and the bike just turns off when it idles.
