    Everything done over the phone. But the quote was too high (Rs 1286). It was even higher than my first years (Rs 1268). But since they didnt require to inspect the vehicle and gave the policy (soft copy) immediately I opted for them.

    How much did you guys pay for your 2nd insurance and how much is the IDV?

    Also any feedback about ICICI Lombard? My first exp with them.
    ICICI Lombard and TATA AIG are known to be worst. They will give you a horrible time at the time of claims and all.

    Angry Bike gulping fuel!

    Hey guys my fazer gave me 38 the first few times i filled but after tht she's been giving me 33 consistently.In order to increase FE and appease my dad
    I started riding for mileage(Upshift at 4k,downshift at 2k,etc.)and now the mileage is 31.I have no idea how this has happened..I used to semi-rip her before..I also got the pressure checked..35 at rear and 30 at front.
    Also my bike has started "knocking" a lot lately..gunshot sound from the silencer and sometimes when i push start it starts n then goes off making the dhak sound..any idea what might be causing this?I have done 2k kms on odo.

    it might be possible that your running a richer mixture than needed.... go to the svc and tell them to adjust it for mileage...

    Help me.
    When my insurance expired, I was looking for New India coz thats what the SVC and my dealer had switched to, and I thought it was better to keep that one. I could not find their office () and instead saw National Insurance's office on the way. I thought insurance is just insurance, and so decided to go for it.

    When I had the misfortune of crashing my bike (on a straight.. slightly slushy road ), I took my bike to the svc and told them I wanted insurance claimed on it. They drew up an estimate. I had to take the estimate to the NI office, submit it along with thr form, and said goodbye to my bike for 2 weeks.
    Afterwards, there were no hassles apart from the long time taken to clear the claim.

    So my view is that NI took a while to get the claim cleared (being sarkaari and all) but they did not do any jhikjhik about how much to pay up. According to the terms, plastics were covered for 50% of the cost and metal parts were covered for 100%. Based on that, my estimate was 1750 (which I paid cash at the svc to get my bike back) and the check arrived 15 days after for 1400.

    Good enough for me. I've not interacted with any other insurance company. Hope this helped.

    With in 10 days again puncture in my rear tire, i am tired of this MRF tire its prone to puncture every now and then, and also nothing to say about grip, it can easily skid if there is little sand gravel or if there is wet mud on road.

    Can any one give me contact where i can get Pirelli in bangalore?

    That's an insane figure dude...but may be you are running on lean mixture, your bike's top whack must be then limited to 103-105 kmph... not that you need it that much... i was hitting close to 43-47 kmpl after the 1st servicing... 2nd servicing, i ripped her like crazy as mentioned in my previous post and it reached 30kmpl... but now i think i should be back to the same figures...being back to the regular commuting.

    Hey guys, i do need suggestions on how to improve my riding for better fuel efficiency. I must be honest, i used to constantly shift gears earlier to be on the higher power band.. but now have resorted to sticking to 5th gear even around 25 kmph under city traffic. the bike does respond well having tons of torque. Anyways, your suggestions on better driving habits are most welcome

    ride safe

    can someone please tell me address of authorized yamaha service centers in South DELHI, other than Adarsh Yamaha?
    Services of Adarsh Yamaha are total useless.. went like 2-3 times to repair some problem with indicator and pass light, everytime they sent me back giving lame exuces like mechanic is not free .. even at 10am in the morning :x
    During servicing too they never repair any of the problems i mention.
