    if your mechanic dismantled your bike into parts (saying it has to be serviced) just ask him to assemble it in same condition and bring back as single bike and find some other worthy mechanic.

    No the bike is in single piece, I just told him to remove the block and let me know what size of oversize piston its running.

    Yes very true. I carry out minor repairs and maintenance, but I don't have any clue when it comes to something with the important components of the bike and even one needs to have all the necessary tools.

    I always want to be a DIY guy and also like to keep the bike in perfect shape but I just don't know how to go about it and also do not want to mess up with my bike. Actually I find it to be great fun to get the hands greased and this would be a good opportunity to be more close to my ride

    First purchase some basic mechanic tools. Then start exploring the bike having workshop manual beside. For the start up, you can open the plug and air filter and do the maintenance.

    After going through the DIY section, I started doing few things like cleaning the filter element with detergent and water and installing it back, checking the water level on the battery and cleaning the drive chain and lubricating it.
    Still a long way to go.
