    1. Front disc brake makes some slight electronic sound when used - is this normal? sorry, no experience with disc brakes.
    2. I feel the gear shift is hard - new to toe shift too.. will this soften with time or should I get it checked?

    on the positive note...
    Initially I was disappointed with its beat in lower gears... but soon fell in love with it! It exudes refinement and confidence!
    The seat is very comfortable, just for some back ache and wrist ache - normal if I ride 170 Km non-stop(pardon small brakes) for almost 5 hours!
    A head turner! Indeeed a head turner! Even a few car guys stopped to enquire about it!

    P.S:- A showroom is going to open next month in my city - planning to get its first servicing here. Should I be worried abt the lil troubles I mentioned?
    1. the front disc sound is normal.
    2. you will get used to it. its typical yamaha. let it do its job.
    3. riding position.: try new positions. you will find the right one and get comfortable. slide more towards to the front so you dont put your body weight on your wrist, shoulders and back.
    4. dont forget to watch WorldSuperbike series starting on 1st march.

    Liked the wisecrack in the 4th point. It should be included in the owners manual too and updated every year

    Thanks a lot for clearing those up! And sure will watch it!

    and is there any alternate place where I can fix my front number plate... it sure is awkward over the headlight...
    And must I go out now and buy a chain cleaner and a chain spray?

    well with regards to the front License plate. creativity has no boundaries. i have seen many paint their front fender with the lic no. but keep in mind if you break traffic rules or pulled over by a Traffic Police. they have the right to fine you for your creativity. as in INDIA it does not matter.

    ride safe.

    the point you made about the chain guard is what i had bought up some threads back. we will need it especially in the monsoon and all that offroading that will happen.

    cheers.

    Default Some More Bad News!

    Hi Guys,

    Remember I posted few days back regarding the Digiometer being stalled and becoming completely Ineffective in one of my frns FZ.

    The newz is that Yamaha has indeed accepted the fact that the digiometer are faulty (not all).. and are ready to replace them.

    The showroom owner in Pune has confirmed that this has happened in atleast 3 cases (who have had booked bike from him)..

    well, lets hope, it doesnt happens to us!
    SAVE TIME....SEE IT MY WAY

    as mentioned earlier. Crash Guard is only provided by the dealer. not the company. in some cases they come at a cost. where as in some other cases you will need to tell the dealer that you want it partof the package. but i doubt it. since the premium on this bie is quite high and the FZ is selling like hot cakes.

    Yamaha dealer's ahoy. you will be spending some 400 - 500 in select cities.

    is crash guard same as engine guard you fit below the engine to protect from stones etc? I am planning on getting one soon... apart from a new horn.
