      Don't worry about the radiator. It will operate exactly like your car's radiator. Only difference is the car's radiator is covered on top by the bonnet and you are sitting away from it so you don't see it so often.

      :- I studied about the position so i hugged the tank tight with my legs but realised its too hot and giving red marks, is that same with all?
      heat is at the starting of tank attached to seat
      The wrists and shoulders should not pain at all. Do not try to sit with straight arms. Try to bend forward slightly and your elbows should be slightly bent outwards. This will completely remove pressure from your shoulders and wrists. I was having similar problem but one senior member showed me correct seating position and since then, no pain - only gain.

      Hugging tank with your legs is good but I think you are overdoing it.

        • Chain oil for Ninja

          I went to Khivraj motors today to buy the chain oil spray. They are using a different oil to the one recommended. The manual says OKD 450/451, but they are selling some TC40 oil by some local manufacturer. Apparently they are using the same while servicing the Ninja??? Do i need to be concerned??

            I got the can from Khivraj, seems to be ok. But I can't say technically.

              • The chain spray used by Khivraj is by a company called TriboCore. I've been using it on my R15 for the past 6 months and the results are very satisfactory. Santoosh will concur with me on this. Its easier on the pocket too. The oil is dispensed in the form of a foam and takes a little time to settle. The carrier used is LPG, so please keep it away from any kind of flame!!

                  I have done 1400 kms and yes my Accent and Swift are rusting

                  I think tenhunt and bluevolt will be the leaders
                  Remote place: Should not be problem, as long as you have a place to refill.
                  Bike/radiator health: The same bike is sold in south east asian countries, heat and water should never be a problem

                  Done my second service and heading for the third..

                    The same is used for lubing the P200 and P220 there!!!

                    • Finished formally with the run-in. Currently 1700+ on the odo.

                      I really opened her up yesterday, hit 150 kmph before I realized I had another gear left.

                      The rev-limiter is a bit jarring. Frankly, I am not used to the rev-limiter. My old bike, the RTR 160, has no rev-limiter

                      Can you tell me how you guys lube the chain. Do you actually move around the bike (if you dont have the paddock stand) to lube different parts of the chain?

                        Yesterday morning, I also did the same mistake before Khambataki ghat. I was going flat out, the bike started redlining and the speed was somewhere 150+. First I started thinking about headwinds etc and then realised, there is one more gear left.

                        I ask someone to sit on the bike, start lubricating the chain and ask him to move forward till I have completed one full revolution of the chain. Then ask him to pull it back just to check every portion is lubed.
