    @Vinoth: Dude, where did you go for the long ride? I am taking a 100 kph run everyday from my home to ECR and then I go to office ( sadly). Are you experiencing any stearing wobble?

    Right, managed to get the bike delivered today. Got myself a great blue monster. First experiences:

    1) Engine has quite some vibes, probably because it's brand new.
    2) Low end pull is present, but not really that great.
    3) Engine heats up like mad, again too new I think.
    4) Mirrors are still useless.
    5) Hits 50+ before you even know it, and don't feel it.
    6) Bike is stable.
    7) Front brakes are good, rear brake almost absent.

    Well, that's all I can add for now. One thing the service center guys said is take it easy for the first 2000KM I think that's a little excessive. Will keep under 5K RPM for the time being, and go higher when I hit something like 500+ KM. Let me know what you guys think.

    1. Vibes would be the least when its new, compare your's with another to see the difference in vibes.
    2. No Comment.
    3. What bike did you ride prior to this, even after aging the bike actually heats up as much as it used to when it was new, we perceive it as lesser coz we get used to it.
    4. You will learn the "chicken dance" with practice to make the mirrors work.
    5.
    6. Let me know how the bike behaves in hard braking, does the tail section weave or come out of line?
    7. Rear brakes will never be as bitey as the rear, but are just about enough. Pump the brakes as pressure might be very less in the system.

    I would say mototune it, but then its a personal choice. Even if you do follow the factory indicated speed/rpms do give speeds bursts once in a while. But don't redline it for extended periods thats it...

    Do change your engine oil at 50,300,750 kms and prefferably use mineral for the first 5K kms.

    Is it proven? That is a matter of debate for another thread , but even that will not have a clear cut answer. Simply because there are believers and there non-believers.

    Here's the link!

    IMHO, In today's age of precision engineered machines there really wont be too much of a difference either way. What ever you do, do not stress out the engine.

    The vibes I've also noticed in the test bike, so I think it's a "feature" of this bike. It's any way not too much. Will learn to live with it. (Honda Shine's engine anyway vibrates like hell above about 50km/h.)
    The heat from the engine seems to be bearable, if you say it's going to stay that way, probably it's me having to get used to it. I used to drive a Honda Shine, which really doesn't give off too much heat. (Engine is just too small probably. )
    And chicken dance is the right description of what I've been doing to see what's behind.

    As far as braking goes, I haven't really braked very hard yet, the roads are wet and I'm in no mood to kiss the road, once it dries up I'll see how hard I can push it. The rear brake just takes a bit getting used to, drove a little more and starting to put some more pressure on it, seems to help.

    Will be posting here about my experiences and also some pics if I can manage it. Hope all of us will have a great time with this motorcycle.

    1) compared to fi this has the least vibes....
    2)5th gear i managed 28kmph
    3)no trouble with heat...normal...no smell no burning
    4)mirrors are great for me..though half is covered by my arms...its still good...
    5)ditto
    6)damn stable...like an fz
    7)front are good...back are made to be bad coz if they are as good as front,then the bike will skid...but i pressed fully the rear discs today and the wheel got locked and bike rolled on in a straight line...awesome

    daily 100 km ! then 500km must be the long ride for you. i went to melmaruvathur which is exactly 100km from chennai on trichy road. no steering wobble at all. today crossed 100 kmph . the pick up was amazing. got to 100 in no time. sadly didnt take it more than that as the bike has completed only 700 km. Pbk guys said i should keep the speed under 75 till 2000km.

    Check the air pressure in your front wheel and also check for Nails, Slow punctures.
