Faults appearing in bike
« on: June 07, 2018, 11:35:13 PM »
My bike is just 1 month old and has done 850kms and I have listed the problems I am facing below. Please let me know if you are having the same problem or if there is a fix for this

1) thud sound when putting the bike on first gear or second gear

2) sound from the rear of the bike when going on patchy roads or humps, maybe its from the chain

3) sound from the front disk when applying breaks.

These issues are really frustrating for a other wise brilliant bike

Hey Sachin,
Yes Dominar is the best VFM bike at the moment but I agree it's far from perfect as all Bajaj bikes are not.
Thud sound is normal while shifting to 1 n 2 nd gears, infact higher powered bikes like HD n RE also have them so that's common. Shifting gear if ur at the right speed n RPM u will actually not get the sound while shifting from first to second. Third fourth n upwards n smoother. Compared to frist n second.
Bad roads all bikes get the sound for Dominar is d chain, try to adjust the slack at the SVC if the chain is tight enough u might want to check the tool kit sometimes it rattles.
Sound from d front disc is it like rubbing against each other that's also common sometimes due to monsoons mud n other debris might cause d sound. If the sound is like thud may d coneset is loose or damaged. SVC might tighten it or ask u to replace it.
Hope it helps.

Thanks bro, it's really helpful

Can you also tell me how to check chain slack, how will i know it is lose and not normal?

The back sound feels like it is coming from below the back seat, I have removed the tool kit and I still get the sound

Hey chain slack u can check by moving the chain near the side stand part so it should not touch the swing arm not should it be to stiff or tight that u cant move it. If the chain is fine u may wanna check below the pillion seat if the tools are secured properly. Sometimes chain sound also comes from the top part where u find the chain lying on a piece of hard rubber on the swing arm. I hope this helps bro.Godspeed.

Bro I have the simple solution for the toolkit sound issue,
Remove the tools from the cover, wrap it tightly using a plastic bag and insert into the the cover.
The funda is if you shake it, it should not make noise.


For the chain slack checking,
Put the bike on a paddock stand, at the center position below the swing arm, pull the chain downwards and push it upwards
The total movement should not be less than 2 cm - (too tight)
And should not be more than 3cm (too loose)

Hope it helps


Note: you need to rotate the rear wheel and check the chain have same slack everywhere
