    Thank you for your POV. But dude let me tell you that the mech (or at least the one where I serviced the bike) was not that techie . You are not supposed to shoot your rpm beyond 5k during the runin period. But this guy pulled the throttle past 8k to check the bike while servicing I felt like thrashing him. Further, they even don't check the proper RPM for the bike so there is no question of tuning the air fuel mixture during the next service. I hope maybe the piston gets settled by 2000 km and i may be able to attain more top speed. PLEASE GUYS I WOULD LIKE EVERY 1 to POST their REVIEW ABT the TOP speed for their UNICORN and were they able to achieve it after their first service

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

    you get the best output once you are gone through with second service atleast. i remember i used to touch 124 (speedo) must be around 115 Max on a downhil crounched.

    and these days i get aroung 110 easily.

    I think i need to catch their neck for the Oil price now .Since i have already payed the price they wont return it .Can try to compensate the same in the next service . Thanks for your views man

    its not required to run-in ur bike for 2k kms....jus for 500 to 600 kms is more than enough(there are a lot of ppl who disagree...but technically speaking u dont need)....google diff ways of run-in and u would know wat i am trying to explain....these days machining is very precise and the gap are set properly u need only to seat the rings which is done only by applying pressure..tat is short bursts and also u need to use the full rpm range once in a while....

    The 1st 20 miles are very crucial in run-in u need to open the throttle wide sudden bursts everything.....i have proof for this too tat is my uni n my bros uni(v bought tat as a secondhand bike)... my uni can do 120 easily but whereas my bros uni wil do a max of 110kph in the same given stretch.....

    my best is 128kph with a pillion fully crouched..

    For run-in, just follow the manual guys... Honda definitely knows its stuff much better than individual researchers.

    At my place, when I checked last, it was Rs. 170 for a litre, earlier Rs. 153, so I got a li'l being cheated feeling.. but, hearing from other people here, it sounds fine...

    BTW, you must have got the bill, try writing to Honda...

    Maybe, I screwed it, I don't bother reading manuals until something screws up or, I am already on the thing...

    I could take my Uni to max. 102kmph... Maybe, the service station d00ds have tuned it for economy.. The road I tested it on, is very scary... though smooth, but lots of ups and down..

    The second Uni you guys have, might be old, that's why? or, yours maybe too new? Honda people, indeed do further refinement to the new stickered editions, though they don't boast about it..

    I wonder, run-ins are for just biker getting used to the bike and bike to the biker, or something more?

    My Uncle says, these days bike are fully tested during the first 7-8kms (as shown in the bike'd odo before purchase), but still for safety they suggest to go for slower speeds in run-ins.. Dunno, what's true..

    Gott agree with you there bro.. The last time i gave my Uni for service was 4 months ago.. If memory serves me right it was 175 Rs all inclusive for the engine oil..

    Might have gone up now to 190 Rs.. But 320 seems ridiculous..
    The only explanation i can think of is Honda bringing out a semi synth oil for their vehicles...

    @ MavericK46 , cyclone2k

    Thank you for all your views , sorry to say that i am not getting time at all to go to the Showroom and check the price . I am stuck with my job from past few days . Think that i should forget about this issue for the time being ( which irritates me all the time when thinking ) & will catch them at the next service , anyway i have the bill receipt .

    @
    cyclone2k

    I liked what you said " Suno sabki, karo Honda ke manual ki! "

    That's nice dood , If i am not wrong it means " listen to everybody but do what Honda say's " My Hindi is not that good . Used to speak ok when i was in Bangalore , now in Coimbatore no one to speak to in hindi so tending to forget

    Please Don't Use Remote In Any Bike. Because it will harm ur Electrical wairing and in heavy rain it can make a sort circuit which will lock the starting ability of ur bike. It will not start ,u have to uninstall the whole kit to start it again. it's my own experience..
