    If u want a good 20W40 mineral, check the SHELL mineral oil available at all SHELL petrol bunks. One of the best. A lot better than the CASTROL Crap and as good as MOTUL's mineral. Using it on my bike and my brother's bike as well. And it costs just 200 bucks.

    Default My Ride - Bajaj Discover 135 DTSi

    Hi Guys.. My ride is a blue, Bajaj Discover 135 DTSi.. I have owned it for 15 months now..
    This is my 1st bike, and I'm proud of my choice..
    I have done about 9,000 KMs on it, and till date it has not given me a single problem..
    I own the drum brake version, because my dad was of the opinion that I if I bought the Disc brake version, I would ride the bike very fast.. Hehe..
    Anyways, like I said, I love this bike very very much, and its power is perfect for a new biker like me..
    If there's 1 thing that Bajaj can work on this bike, its the Head lamp console.. It looks very bulbous, and a little weird..

    Overall- No complaints. Bajaj has a satisfied customer in me..

    PS: I'm planning to upgrade to FZ-16 soon.
    Any idea how much my Discover would fetch me? Like I said 9k KM done, Insurance paid till Jan 2010. No scratches, no damage. Immaculate condition..

    After I joined my first job in 2005, I was immediately on the lookout for a bike and settled down to 125cc segment. My first choice at that time was TVS Victor followed by Splendour 125cc. Discover was never on my radar. A guy who joined with me at the same time got a bike before I did and it was a Discover. The first time I saw the bike, I was bowled over by the looks. After doing a thorough research on the internet, I decided that Discover would be my ride and got myself one on 17th December 2005. The buying experience was made forgettable thanks to my bank else I would have got it atleast 10 days in advance.

    Since then, I have been enjoying every second on my bike for 23,600 km that I have done till date. I have kept her well maintained and she never lets me down. Only problem that I have had is with the chain getting lose a few days after one of the services. Since it was around 9:00 pm, I had to get it fixed at a roadside shop to reach home. When the bike was new, I used to get a lot of queries from other bikers at signals on mileage, cost etc which made me feel even better.

    I love the terrific throttle response and the engine note. I have run at 80 kph without realising the speed I was doing.

    Now to the dislikes, there is a vibration between 60-70 kph, the gear box sometimes moves to false nuteral and is quiet noisy. I have ridden my father's Star City and the gear shift on that is a pleasure. Here it is comparitively laborius and noisy.

    I have had one fall with my bike on a rainy day when I tried to get on the road from road side and skid. I had some sever bruises on my hand. My left thumb had a big blood clot and the nail came off. There were some scratches on the dome and front mudguard. I have also outbraked myself and hit the rear of a bus breaking the headlight assembly.

    I hope that she serves me well for another couple of years.

    Wise choice.Which engine oil do you use? The vibrations can be lessened to an extent if you use a better engine oil. Motul 5100 will do wonders. Unlike what Motul did to my Gladiator,it sets the Discover on fire. My Discover 125 had much better pickup with Motul and the vibrations in the footrest and the gear lever were lessened.

    It will.

    P.S.: The Gladiator's engine runs cooler than the Discover's. Hence thicker oil isnt required. The Discover will get along just fine with Motul.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have never procured engine oil myself. It has always been what the authorised service center put in. I am planning to try shell next time.
