It was a scary experience as my mobile ran out of juice and I had to push my dead motorcycle for 10km with all the riding Gears on. I'm not good at electrical things, can you guys help me get to the root of the problem so that fuse would not blow again. Please assist me.
    Team, Finally i solved the short circuit issue. There is a bunch of wires in right hand front side panel, two wires were melted together causing the short circuit. I have swapped with new wires and move on to riding but what caused the wires meltdown in the first place?

    Probably rat infestation, and or just plain wear and tear due to cracks of the wire due to hardening. Once the copper wires are exposed, chances of arcing and shorting are very high. And just as I mentioned earlier it was a short circuit indeed. Don't worry, make sure wires are properly routed and not kinked which he'll reduces wire stresses.

    Glad you solved the issue.

    Cheers!

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Today I replaced both front and rear tyre, went with MRFs only. Costed 1600 INR for front and 3300 INR for rear with fitting.


    I am planning to fix a mobile holder for GPS. Which is the best mobile holder for R15 V2, please?

    Chevik is best. I'm using one in my R15. Available in Amazon. Don't go for Bolt and pointed single USB chargers.

    Guys, which engine oil is best for my R15-S. I've been using the Yamalube since I bought the bike home. I've been thinking of changing the engine oil for a while now. But I don't know which ones are good. Help me out please.

    Also, My battery discharges and refuses to start. I have not changed the the battery even once since I bought it. I bought the bike in 2017. Could you suggest which are the good batteries in the market for my bike which I can replace for my old batteries.

    Motul 7100 10W50 is widely used by R15 owners. It is one of the best options for the bike. The drain interval is also longer compared to the Yamalube.
    I usually drain it between 4.5k to 5k kms, and even then the viscosity of the oil is good and it feels that it can be used some more.
    Try it out, you will be pleased with the results.
    Get original oil filter from Yamaha Authorized service center and replace if necessary.
    The Motul 1 ltr bottle will cost you about 700 and oil filter is about 160 rs.


    For battery, the bike comes with Excide from the factory and replacing it with same model is fine. My stock battery lasted 6 years and I changed it to exact same model as the factory one. Your bike is relatively new and the battery should not be going out so soon. Get it checked and charged at a battery shop, If it still won't hold the charge, replace it. It will cost you 1200 rs.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.
