    Don't know what exactly the problem is, but here are some things you could try:

    >Check the wiring, if necessary get it replaced if it is old. Also check for loose connections.
    >Change the bulb, go for something better than the one recommended by HH. I'm not sure which exactly is the bulb used, but you could ask the guys at the auto-parts shop. They have a fairly useful knowledge.
    >Take out the headlamp assembly, clean out the reflector with a soft cloth and a mild solution of water and spirit, and the glass with a damped newspaper.
    >You could also get the dynamo checked at the service centre.

    I'm glad you avoided what could have been a massive accident. Thank your guardian angel, that you and the bike are safe.

    Nope, engine was overhauled @88k kms. Thats entirely because of me. Dad left the bike with us when it was around 11k kms. it was during my inter days, too much cash crunh. Twice i overshot the oil change intreval. Once i changed it at 12k kms and once at 6k kms. thats spoiled the engine most.

    other than that, i changed the clutch plates and chain kit during over haul only. Did'nt go for a new bore, i got the old bore rebored. (.25)

    Regaurding the headlights, I had a spare bulb from my RTR, i fixed that in the splednor and the lighting was better.

    Ok , thanks .. this is a brand new bike of 3 months only , so the wiring is ok , and I have checked the contacts and the fuse-box myself . Battery is fully charged , as I weekly take it out and charge on my mains-charger .
    Yes I had the idea of changing the headlight bulb , but kindly let me know with what bulb , that is positively known to be better than the stock bulb . Also how to open up the front bikini-fairing to access the headlamp and holder ?

    try honda unicorn's or shine's headlgiht bulb. they cost a bit more...around 175rs. Reviews abt it have been satisfactory. Am gonna use it on my RTR once the current one goes kaput.

    Just remove the bolt below the front indicators(both L&R) to open the bikini faring.

    Default engine oils

    Also I am planning on shifting from HeroHonda 10w30 engine oil to more common 20w40 gulf/motul/elf . Is that ok ? What is your experience with engine oils with this particular bike ?

    It should not be a problem at all. But make sure u flush ur engine oil well form the engine oil.

    @ ALL : I have a CD 100. 92 model. still running strong and super. I would like to know the cost of clutch plates and i am also interested in the Carburetor that the splendor comes with. How much do i need to spend ?

    Don't tell me you haven't changed your clutch plates since 1992 vid'jee hahahaha . I'll enquire with the HH service about it and get back to you ok .
