    2013 model uses a viscous air filter - normally green in color.
    you can also use the normal yellow filter and shouldn't cause any issues.

    Why you ended up with a normal yellow paper filter, could be due someone swapped it during service or replacement etc..

    i see that might be because of new AUTHORISED SERVICE CENTRE I USED
    on servicing day i got a call from centre that OIL and Filter needs to be replaced but the question was OIL WAS CHANGED 800 KMS BACK AND I HAVE RUN JUST 6500kms in total so there was no chance of oil or filter being spoiled

    Though i crossed check with outside mechanic and guess what he said FILTER CAN 700kms and OIL can go beyond 1000 kms

    anywhere i can complaint ?

    yes, to honda via email or their website.

    that is why it always a good habit to hang around while the bike is getting serviced.
    yes engine oil will normally be good for around 2000-2500km and the viscous filter as per Honda i think should be replaced only every 10-12k km (not sure of this number though)
    there is no 'cleaning' of this filter..its just replace, while the dry yellow colored filter can be cleaned using compressed air.
    I'd prefer using the dry yellow paper filter and clean it every 2-3k km and replace it every 12k km.

    maintain a friendly relation with the asc.. just dont be rude but be friendly, polite and firm.. you can get your issues addressed and fixed easier that way.

    Help needed from people who have replaced engine parts.

    My Unicorn's Engine Head is leaking oil. The screw thread is worn out and currently only one screw is holding the engine head to the engine.

    The part marked with red needs to be replaced or re-thread needs to be done.

    The part marked with brown is where the oil is leaking from. Name:  Engine.jpg

    Don't worry take it to asc. They will open the head and will send it to lathe and will insert a sleeve and fix the bolt. Not a serious issue. No part replacement is needed. It will just cost you less than 500 rs. Also while sending it to lathe ask them to insert sleeve for the other bolt also so that it won't create any problems in future. But first you should try to wrap some aluminium foil paper around the bolt threads and tight gently it may work. I am also running with this on my xtreme.

    uhh friends my unicorn starts giving vibrations after 5000 rpm at 2nd 3rd gears later on 4th or 5th gear they feel less is it ok ?
    i compared with another unicorn which had run of 20000 kms up and it was smooth till 5k to 6k rpm
    infact he only told me your bike does give vibes and later on i tried his bike and i could confirm that my bike vibrates at 5 to 6 k rpms
    my unicorn has run just 7000 kms
    is it the cause ?

    Also engine has been making a wiered sound like cut cut cut which can be seen from the video

    Watch "Honda CB Unicorn Engine Sound" on YouTube - Honda CB Unicorn Engine Sound: http://youtu.be/O6X017gWKVc

    i dun really know if its a problem or just myth ?
