    Cant wait...!! Been reading this forum from Page1, cant believe
    its a 1000 pages now!! This has GOT to be the ultimate resource
    on the R15..

    Bidding adios to my few-months-old Honda CBF 125 Stunner,
    the bike served me really well, probably kept me alive on many
    occasions with its easy-going handling and sharp brakes.
    Dint suit my purpose of a tourer tho with its short-gearing and
    tiny 125c engine. Really looking forward to the upgrade with much more
    power, smoooooth engine and 6 gears.

    Have booked at Perfect Riders, Lalbagh Road, Bangalore. Any advice
    on which service center will be good to leave the new buddy with?

    Looking forward to seein all u Riders on the road.. Cheers!!
    Advanced congratulations! Camel Yamaha Yellow looks fantastic man! It's very distinct from rest of the R15s.
    Well, look for a tall, well built fellow(I guess the name is Vinay, I am not sure though) in Perfect Riders. He will be good to you. From what I have heard, Bangalore Wheels(Rajajinagar) is supposed to be the best in Bangalore. However, I found Perfect Riders very good when I took a TR!
    Good luck with your new machine. Think about hitting the track(Track days) once the running-in period is over. Ride safe.

    I asked for help..not cross questions.I don't use my bike for road/tarmac racing.and i strongly disagree with your point you said above.If a bike has good control,handling and cornering abilities then it doesn't mean that you can't take it for offroading.
    I hope you are using your R15 for Indian Moto GP's if you own any. ..Jokes a part.

    I am taking my bike to Leh (Again I hope i am not abusing the purpose for which R15 has been made,if yes then i have to rent a RE and go to LEH ).So taking the bike in the stock tyre will be a suicide.That's whay going for the offroading tyre.

    Why don't you try for MRF Motocross tyres?
    This is new to me,Please post some more details.Like in what profiles and price they are available.Thanks


    Cheers

    @ shivanshu

    thanks for replying, yes i am using the right braking technique i.e. 7:3, but still under some conditions the problem with the rear brake is there. will look forward to it.

    dont worry with the front disc brake usage, i have been using disc since long, but yes will take care.
    700 kms

    Love to call myself "free soul on my BIRD"

    Best Regards

    This is surprising, dude!! Don't you know about track days being held in IRT(MMSC) and KMS? There are lot many bikers in this forum who do that! Check Motorsports section for more info.
    En future R15 ownero neenu!!!


    @Beruoist

    I don't have much idea about it, man. But, I have seen TVS Racing using the same for National Supercross Championships.

    Default brake pad queries

    Halo guys, i have been a hard rider, and just about 7k kms on my r15, the svc says both brake pads need to be replaced and my clutch wire snapped too,..im getting them replaced, im somehow not very sure if the brake pads have really worn out,..how do i check if brake pads have worn out and how do i ensure the svc guys have replaced with new pads?
    There is a thin line between adventure and madness,...God must have made me myopic for a reason!!!

    yeh, for super sport bikes like the r1.....it is very important as is keeps the tyre cool during long and hard rides...hence, more stability.....but for city riding conditions nitrogen is not so helpful...but yes it will increase the life of your tyre....go for the nitrogen for your circuit machine..
    it is a good choice....for you...it will help you to keep the tyre cool and will increase its life..!

    2- just 500 kms covered....well, according to me i suggest you...just put some used engine oil on the chain...no need to go for the expensive oils etc.......for the time being put some engine oil.....and when you take your bike to the first service...get it cleaned by the service guys..!

    3- i have no idea about that...but you can go for the yamaha one.....it costs around rs 1400 and can be used for more than 16 times.
    Buddy thanks for the reply...However i think that lubricating the O ring chain with used engine oil could be the worst thing you can do to the chain. The contaminated oil not only would have lost its viscosity and sticking capabilities it could even damage the O ring seals. Above all i don't think engine oils designed for that purpose at all.

    And regarding life of tire i beleive that nitrogen may not make much difference in case of non track usage as heat factor doesn't come to play much here. in racing cars like F1 machines its used otherwise the tire would get ignited because of the oxygen inside the tires as tire really heats up. However I believe nitrogen would leak through the walls at a much slower rate compared to normal air, effectively slowing down pressure loss. also due to absence of oxygen it would really slow down possible corrosion of rims.



    And I am still waiting for a sensible reply for my third query. ie

    3. Want to choose the ideal chain lubricant. I understand either we can use motul chain lube (or similar) or Yamalube dry type lubricant. Yamaha dry type I understand is very efficient,less likely to absorb dust and slime, last long but also is costly compared to motul. I live in kerala and from next month onward rains would be a daily affair. I have read fellow members writing Yamaha dry type last long only if its used in a relatively dry environment. considering the price factor and also considering i would be riding in lite to heavy rain once a week at least..wouldn't it require frequent cleaning and lubrication even if I use yamaha dry type lube? In that case would motul be a better choice considering almost 1000 Rs difference in the price? please advice...

    There is also one more brand called OKS. Do look at it.
    Motul comes with two cans for chain cleaning and lubricating. (Chain clean and chain lube). OKS and Motul as almost same, where OKS is cheaper than motul.

    Riding in rain does makes the lube washed away, and I would be difficult to tell at what intervals chain to be lubes unless one has closer look at the chain. Its usually at every 400-500kms chain needs to be cleaned and lubed.

    Yamalube is certainly best of all but I feel its not nessecary for the kind of environment the bike is used, it would be exceptional if the bike is used on off tracks.
