    Just out of curiosity, I want to know how your overall experience is, with your FZ.
    As for me, I like the bike. It's done 19,000+ kms and 2 1/2 years old. It's well maintained. But now its giving some problems. It's so difficult to make the svc people understand the symptoms.

    100% satisfied with my bike . Clocked almost 27k km. No issues other than knocking front shock, which they tighten at every service and crop up on the way home after service

    Good to know you are satisfied with your bike.
    I recall you mentioned that you get the service done at Muthoot.
    I'm getting all maintenance done at Hilton, Ulloor.
    How's Muthoot, I'm thinking of having the hiccups checked at Muthoot.

    I think it really depends on your gear shifting pattern.. I have noticed it too.. if I shift initial 2-3 gears too early, it gets a little harsh on the top gear and one can feel the vibrations even at the speed of 80-90..

    Whenever that happens, I reduce the speed to a complete halt, set to neutral and start off again, shifting the gears between 4.5K-5.5K and it gets back to its usual smoothness again most times...

    Muthoot better than Hilton from my experience. There is a white, spec-wearing Service Advisor. He is good.

    Hi,

    Has anyone insured their bike with private companies like ICICI or Reliance?

    My insurance is due for renewal next month and I wanted to know how your experience has been with these companies.

    If you want to use the HID and the two halogens together it might be a problem.... But since they are fog lamps and your hid is 43k i am assuming you wont be using them together.... Because 43k hid is useless for fog riding..... I would say first go ahead with the mod try it for a couple of days check the voltages at the battery terminals see if it is gong below if it is you can go for a bigger battery lke a 7 or 9amph battery...
