    thats a capable machine , ride in 80-90 kmph all the day , stop after 200-250kms once for atleast 10mins , Use 10w40
    or 20w40 engine oil, better stick to mineral oils as they are sasta , change every 1.5k kms max , if u ride hard then 1.2k kms max , thats all , tune it little,
    (wie bee) richer side ....
    Thats all , my platina is now clocked 43k kms , always rode hard long (highest 1342kms in 19 hours) , still now stock bore +piston is working fine ..
    all the best ..
    Yeah bruv, its a Super Splendour. Throttle response is definitely not the best at 80 but satisfactory (felt that way after having rode a friend's Duke for quite a bit). Have hit 110 kmph on my HH Super Splendour! Going to tighten my brakes a bit. Will take your advice on the oil. And oh, 1342kms in 19 hours is badassery :O
    Thank you!

    If you change rear tyre upgrade to 3*18, stock is 2.75*18 (as its in my dad's super splendor 2nd gen) .. 10w30 oils are good for short blast after riding some long it losses it capability very fast , with thicker oil 20w40 you will loose little acceleration , but vibs will be less ..
    I regularly do long ride on my platina 125, 10-12 travelogue I have posted , someother in queue ..
    All the best , live free, ride hard, be safe ..

    My rear tyre is 3*18. Got it changed last year itself. My Hero mechanic is an arrogant fellow. He says 10w30 oil hi aayega. I gave it away for servicing (to secure all my parts so that there are no vibrations) so I'll just let him take care of the oiling business. Getting my brakes tightened too! And I'm getting the headlight fairing removed, the bugger is charging 950 rupees for a new but cheap plasticky one. Full rip off scenes. Hero Honda servicing quality has gone to dogs man *shakes head*

    Change your mech/SVC whatever may apply!
    Now that you've got your ride serviced, try to look out for a competent mech elsewhere.

    Yep. I've had enough of this fellow. But my Dad insists on 'offcial' service centers because he thinks other mechs steal your shit. LOL.

    Hi guys out there. Just taking this chance to ask a small question myself. I own a yamaha SZR. As you all know she's a very comfortable commuter bike, but what I wanted to ask is whether I can do tours on this say 2K kms and above with her. In city I ride between 40-50 kmph speeds & average distance of 30kms a day. Highway riding speeds may go upto 60-70kmph. Would she be able to take it???

Keep riding at constant speed on left side of road and use indicators and head turn check before overtaking any vehicles. be aware of four vehicles specially touring vehicle they have different attitude toward motorcycle.

    You may reach lonavala within 2 hours so dont rush it is not too far. route is as follows -->Mumbai -->vashi --> panvel-->catch NH4 toward bangalore -->after madh take a left --> welcome to lonavala..

    Best of luck for your journey...

    We are waiting for your experience..

    I suggest you to please read all safety related article on this site they are very useful to survive on two wheeler no matter where you are riding...
    Thanks for the info Deepak bhai. I was actually planning to take the following route
    Meeting my friend underneath Andheri flyover - JVLR - Eastern express highway - Pune Rd (Thane Toll Plaza) - NH4 to Lonavala
    Does this route fall under the old pune highway. I don't want to end up near the high speed expressway and get stuck/fined.

    What do you mean by "may go upto 60-70 kmph"?
    Doesn't it go higher? Or you don't take it higher? If it doesn't go higher, visit a mech/SVC ASAP and get the clutch plates/air filter/sprockets/carb looked into!

    Else, tank up and ride.

    Sorry for the confusion.No I have ridden it till 90-92kmph. It does well but what I wanted to ask @Divya Sharan is that can i drive a stretch of 100-150kms at a go since its all a commuter segment bike and not a tourer?
