    I am not sure if I can post questions in this thread, but I am doing it anyways.
    I own a 2007 CBZ Xtreme, have done just over 60000 KM and I take it for service to Hero service center only. Of late I am having a lot of problems with my bike and nobody in the service center is aware of it.
    1. Noise in 3rd gear - sounds like a chainsaw is running along with the engine
    2. Over the speeds of 55 the bike stutters, feels like it is on reserve
    3. Bike slows down while climbing an incline despite on full throtle - like a flyover

    Wanted to check with a local mechanic before I took it back to the Hero service center, and he said the engine needs to be reworked. Has someone faced a similar issue ?
    Any help is appreciated.
    Sorry once again if this is the wrong place to ask the question.

    Seen this 3rd gear issue with many Xtremes/Hunks. Even my Hunk has it. When my engine was opened, i could see the gear wheels with dents on the teeth. You can see the details in the below link. I couldn't source the gear wheels that time, so living with the issue even now
    I believe, yours is also the same issue.

    Check if your engine is in good condition. Do you see any reduction in engine oil level after say 500 kms? Any smoke from exhaust on revving hard? Do you see oil deposit on silencer tip?
    Also, check if your clutch is healthy. Do you feel that engine RPM is raised on giving throttle, but speedo needle climbs slowly?

    Here goes my detailed vibration report:
    Model: Hero Hunk 2014, Odo: 13,200 kms, Engine Oil: 10w30
    Maintenance: Regularly serviced and oil changed @1000kms interval, Chain cleaned and lubed by myself, Tappet adjusted using feeler gauge, New spark plug & Airfilter changed @9000kms.
    Condition: Never met any accident.

    Recently came back from 600 kms tour in 3days.
    4K - 6K RPM = Petrol tank, handlebar and footpegs starts vibrating mildly (Very much noticeable when cruising @highway)
    6K - 7K RPM = Vibration level is intense in whole body. Rear footpeg vibrates like crazy which is very uncomfortable for pillion(Highway cruising is not comfortable at all, hands and legs become numb)
    7K - 7.5K RPM = Petrol tank vibration goes away, but handlebar and footpeg vibration exists (Only cruising at this speed is marginally comfortable)
    7.5K - till redline = Heavy vibration everywhere, not possible at all to ride at this range of RPM for a longer time.
    I am sure that vibrations are coming from the engine.

    waiting for XBHPians suggestions.

    This is a perfect sign for air filter clog.

    Did some googling, and it seems debris dont travel back up the brake lines. So I would say moisture is still the likely culprit.

    Thank you for the details,
    I change the oil every 2000 KM, I use Gulf Pride 4T Plus 20W-40, no reduction (dip stick). No smoke from exhaust on revving, and no oil deposit on silencer.
    I am taking it out for a service to a local mechanic just like you did. He's quoting 6K for the repairs.
