    There are two possibilities, either your injector is faulty or the loom connector that connects to the injector has its pins oxidized. Use Zorrik or WD40 and spray it liberally on the connectors and see if it works. Make sure is battery is fully charged.

    I'm complete newbie to Sports bike section, can you guys advise what would have led to such a behavior in just about a week's time b how to fix it??
    Orange light means Engine Malfunction Indicator lamp. It lights up when there is some issue with any of the engine sensors or low battery. If the light stays on while riding and blinking, take it your authorized service center and get the issue sorted.

    Try it out, you will be pleased with the results.

    Thanks Ankey. I read the message today. Silly me!!
    I'll be trying the Motul on my next oil change.

    Hi Guys,

    One of my friend is selling his R15 v1 which is 2011 model. And it is unused since last 2 or 3 years. So if i want to buy that what will be my expenses to restore it? By visual check i can only see that tyres and battery is gone dead. Will the fuel system will be working fine or i'll be looking at more expense on fixing it?

    Thanks in Advance

    How and where it was stored will be a big factor here!!

    Get an Allen key and remove the tank and be sure to thoroughly check the wiring, piping and other parts so that any damage hasn't been done by rats/mice. (if damaged, parts are very expensive and some parts could be very hard to come by for the v1 these days especially the wiring!!)

    Get fresh fuel and then getting an oil change and filter replacement would be the main expenses and just cleaning up everything and lubing all moving parts would be necessary.

    If the bike had any issues before getting stored then those will have to be looked after.

    The V1 is a solid bike and can take abuse far better than the V3 junks that are coming out now. Start off with the rudimental things such as brake pads, tires, front forks, chain life. Secondly, and importantly, if the bike fires up. If the bike has been kept unused for a long time, make sure you clean the fuel tank, fuel pump and fuel filter, drain all the fluids, right from engine oil, fork oil, brake oil, completely and make sure fresh fluids are filled, and the brake systems bled thoroughly. The one thing that is a frequent blower in an R15 are the front coneset bearings, replace the coneset bearings irrespective of the condition, and you're all set. This bike is very much a fill it, shut it, forget it type. Make sure you replace your engine oil at timely intervals, and that's all you would ever require in a V1 and V2.

    Cheers!

    I need suggestion, i am considering to buy used r15 v1, bike is 2010 model 35k on odo, its condition is not up to the mark, i am thinking of buying it need a few pointers on its maintenance
    1) front forks are leaking, i will have to change oil seals with oil, also fork seems to be out, may need cone replacement too.
    2)both the tyres need change have no life left.
    3)front disk is very abused.. changing disk with pads is must
    4) chain needs replacement.
    5) general service with valve clearance needs to be attended
    these 5 things are required to get bike into working condition.
    what will be approximate cost of all these maintenance
    and is it good idea of buying used r15.
    or shall i buy new fz?
