    Good to see a BRAND new RTR.

    But, 2 things i did'nt like:
    1) Running chain dry. What is the point of running chain dry??

    2) Leg guards removed; I think you have racers skills.
    Na, it's actually one and a half years old....

    Running the chain dry doesn't attract the dust,grimes that ultimately turn into sludge that makes the individual rollers impossibe to roll freely,without the lubes all i have to do it is clean it with a dry cloth once a week,and check the individual rollers that hardly takes 15 mins.
    The chain looks spankins silvery clean everytime too

    I dont like the leg guard, it may be saving the tank after a fall but still i dont like it.

      Really, Just for maintaining shine?? you did'nt lube it. Also, a DRY chain will cause much more Vibrations, noiseand increase wear & tear of sprocket. Resulting in a reduced life. Maybe you might notice the chain new when it has no life in it.

      Where is YELLOW RTR.?? I was assuming that you will post it's pics.

        Dry chain will NEVER result in vibrations.
        I'm assuming it will shave 5000kms off the life of the sproaket, and i'm okay with it.

          Atleast for me, whenever the chain goes dry there are considerable vibrations on foot pegs. And those vibrations goes away as soon as i lubricate the chain again. Maybe my bike is faulty.

          YELLOW RTR?????

                  Best TYRES, I could have asked this in TYRES THREAD. But, an RTR owner can only give best answer.

                    Zapper Q is the best i came across, and the best upsize will be 100 section front and 110 section rear, the front from FZ will work wonders in looks as well as the grip.

                          My choice if the change is for better performance

                          R15 tyre upfront, rear Zap Q 90/90 or 100/90 or Zap C 3.00
                          07 HH Zma
                          11 Honda Aviator DLX
                          14 Ford Figo 1.4 TDCI (Now Caged:( )

                            Yup! that's steal. But, every biker is not an 'xbhpian' and same affects in bargaining for best buy.
                            R15+Zap rear, looks a good buy.

                              he does'nt have to be a xbhpian, he just have to be dumb to sell at that price

                              And all the best finding R15 front tyre

                                For sure, I will bargain for 2(for you too) R15 fronties; If, I find them.
