    I've put in the new AF without lubing as advised by Parvez bhai, no difference in performance noted, but then I've not been able to blast her at WOT in final drive due to limited Kerala roads.

    The air filter costs approximately 80 to 100 bucks the last I remember changing it on 220. It's extremely easy to clean with a little diesel, petrol or kerosene, dip it and squeeze it, 95% of the crud comes out easily. What I'd recommend people to do is clean the INSIDE OF THE AIR FILTER BOX itself. It's a little tricky though, but I make sure, waste is dabbed with solvents i.e. P, D or K and then wipe the inside. Oil dipped filters do tend to gunk the inside of the housing and you can see some amount of oil settled below the cleaner box, I always make sure the inside is thoroughly cleaned along with the air filter.

    The mistake most people do with the oil filter when lubing it is, applying a handsome amount of oil over the filter which is the wrong way to do. I make sure the filter is spanky new, let it dry for a few minutes, then make sure I make an X pattern with drops of oil ONLY ON THE OUTSIDE INTAKE SIDE. Extremely little droplets making X and then squeeze the filter to make sure it spreads evenly and then install it back. Clean and easy.

    Too much oil on the surface, you bog the vehicle at the upper RPMs.
    With or without oil won't make a big difference, the oil just helps trap the gunk. But the same oil, that traps the gunk would also hinder the filter's efficiency as it, itself gets clogged over time, if left without cleaning. So, the right amount of oil is key and periodic cleaning of the filter is recommended, depending on the ambiance the bike is ridden.
    The AF clog sensor is inside the housing, so take the time to clean the inside of the housing too

    Obviously I can feel the power drop nowadays !! I can't pin point the actual reason and the engine shuts off automatically at second gear . What could be the issue ?

    It's high time you replace your air filter, along with your spark plugs. Also make sure your carburettor is cleaned. Your bike should be back to normal. If you haven't checked your valve clearance too, now is the better time for it.

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Guys may I know what's the carb. Adapter ?
    The SVC told me that it should be changed in my bike but it was not available with them . As my bike is in warranty period they said that they will notify once it has been arrived !

    Jokes apart, here's how logic works, you either suck it up and stick with stock or go for an aftermarket option, the choice is binary whatever follows would happen anyhow.

    Though personally 45/40 would run just fine without much of an issue, but then you're the one taking the risk, that is if any present.
    Yes !!! It's good I have changed my stock PHILIPS HS1 35/35 W to OSRAM HS1 40/45 W .

    LIGHT THROW IS DECENT IN BOTH LOW & HIGH BEAMS .

    BTW have you modded the headlights in any of your bikes ?

    3100 20W50(factory grade) goes in.
    Shell 20W50 Mineral out.
    Shell survived roughly 1500 kms and it was deteriorating fast. Hoping that semi syn Motul will go at least 2500 kms and produce less resistance and better gear shifts.Name:  20190504_183204.jpg

    In fact, our bike was serviced, washed, filters replaced and topped up with this exact oil 3100. Wanna go, even more el Motule cheapo, 3000T with a drain interval of no more than 1500 to 1.7k MAX. We couldn't get the Motul 5100 as it was not available and we had this one which we opted happily for. 5100 and 3100 are best suited for the 220.

    Best part of 3100 - it comes in 1.15L pack.
    Exact quantity our 220 wants.
    No more struggles of keeping old oil can.
