    Hi brother .

    When you give your bike for service in a Honda Show room , they usually make it a point that the seat is not opened while servicing and after the service its opened the inner part is just wiped with a wet cloth . They would instruct you strictly not to get the bike washed outside by any case as most of them don't know about the air filter under the seat . So take care of this . But if you feel that the issue happened while servicing in the show room , then for sure you should update the supervisor . May the people washing are not updated properly or are careless .Take this initiative as it could save other Honda Unicorns getting serviced there .

    I hope your bike is running cool now . All the best

    Hi Pradeep,

    The bike is running better than ever before right now, and the mileage is better too. The throttle-response it good as well.
    As for telling the service center guys at Honda about the water-wash, i will. But I have an eerie feeling about those guys. I met a guy whose Unicorn got screwed by the Honda Service center. His formerly good engine knocks above 40 Kmph for no reason; he left it for service there though! Seeing him and others' disappointment with the service, i really am pessimistic...

    So you got the first service done. well don't be disappointed. thats the same story everywhere. and thats how they perform the first so called servicing. the'll wash you bike just for the sake of washing it. and then there is not much to do on a new bike so it's just inspection they they need to go through.

    And the engine oil costed you 320???? thats way too costly..

    Default Top Speed after 1st service.

    I would like to know the top speed you can achieve on your unicorn after your first service. I have just completed 1400 Km and my first service was done at the right time . I tried to rip my bike yesterday the bike has a very gud pickup but the top speed I had achieved was around 105 to 107 km/hr. at full throttle as I was riding on Palm Beach road (MUMBAI). But I had a friend who was riding his unicorn along with me and he zoomed past me he is able to attain the top speed of 120 km/hr. I wonder y? He said he also used to get the top speed of 105 during initial days of his unicorn but it will increase gradually I feel that this is utter crap as I have completed my run in period. Further, I checked his engine idiling time it is at 1.2k rpm while mine is around 1.5k any suggestions

    Hi , sorry dude i never tried to take it to that level of 100 Kph yet . Well as far as my understanding goes after each service they tune the engine and the ratio of air fuel mixture is been changed .Only after say 2000 odd Km you will get the full power performance tuning from the service people . Till that time they would keep it bit low for the piston rings to get set well ( this is what i have heard .Not that sure though - have experienced the same with my fiero . She is running in 103 kph now without any problem , But before she used to give 90~95 )

    Hope this helps

    @ sherry_unicornlover

    You mentioned that the oil change which cost me 320 was high . They said that its Honda Oil . Now if there is any way that i can reduce it in the next service .Please let me know

    Yup. it appears that you've been charged extra for some reason..
    Ive paid 175 including taxes for the very same 'Honda Oil'.. Looking to switch to Motul though...

    Ny suggestions ppl .

    The uni has a super smooth engine but feels a bit underpowered on highways and ghats.
    I wud agree to some extent...try adjusting the vertical beam angle by adjusting the nut under the front fairing.If u still not happy...may b u need better bulbs.

    Folks...any suggestions for better illumination for the uni...mine is 3 weeks old (new actually )and i feel the lights r pretty ok...but would certainly like it brighter..

    dude even i always go for Honda Engine oil and it costs 195.

    So if they say that they used Honda Engine oil and charged you 320, go and get them by neck. There is no logical answer for that huge diffrence in the price.

    Default Honda engine oil price.

    when I gave my bike for the first service all i paid was R.s 195 for the engine oil and I checked the price on the oil container it was Rs195. So I don't know why other service centers hike the price
