Hello everyone :)

Last time after they had changed my bikes engine case coolent went down below after 700k. Today when they opened engine, no trace of coolent was found inside the engine (little hope of light😃). Today they replaced engine bore and piston... Till date they changed every part through which coolent flows... Crossing fingers now 😬. Will do a 200km test tomorrow and will update you guys.

Rafiq bhai.. Awaiting a update from you on the issue.. Hope its fixed this time..

General Discussion / Safe Riding Tips

Know your Limits and your Bike Limits
Never get carried over by speed
Never let anyone influence your riding on the road.


Let me share a incident in which I learned these in a harder way.
I was riding to Bangalore from my hometown and was around 50km away from Hasan. Since its not my first time on that road and I did atleast 5 trips in that route, I knew the roads very well,
I was doing constant speeds of some 70-90kmph and all was good untill 2 people on a Rx100 abruptly overtook me(I dont say them squids because i was a better squid that day)
In such a calm route, I was rattled by sudden sound and they passed so close and fled away at around 80kmph.
I had 2 options,
1. Relax, take a deep breath and continue the way I was riding
2. Chase them and show I'm better and satisfy my Ego

Unluckily I chose option 2 even when my pillion asking me not to.
I chased them, then they overtook me for some 5 min it went on

My speed already crossing triple digits and I kept going away from them
A. I'm already out of my comfort zone
B. Had traffic and Bike also out of its controlling ability in that conditions

All of a sudden some 100m away from me a poor biker took and sudden right and started to overtake a auto
Bang I jammed my brakes and I hit that biker around 10kmph, my handlebar locked to his hand and his bike dragged my bike and we both fell.
Thanks to our riding gears nothing big happened to us but that poor biker had some minor wounds as he didn't had any protection. Because of me(SQUID) one innocent rider got injure.

Now also I regret it thinking I would have chosen option1 that day. I now keep only option 1 with me.

There is a saying "we learn from mistakes"
Mistake can be yours or others :P

Also remember a thing before competing with anyone on the road - what will you gain!? at the end of the run, you dont know him and he dont know you  :-X

General Discussion / Re: Tata Nano is no More!
« on: July 13, 2018, 12:10:49 AM »
I feel Tata got it wrong from day1 though it was a brave move.
They advertised the concept to be a 1 lac car, Which never sold for 1lac rupees . Got a lot of negative marketing from media, even one in a ten thousand incident highlighted in a way every Nano is faulty and the competitors killed it with more and more cars near that segment. If executed well it would have been a JIO of motor world today.

People need to have awareness about this.. Else every new owner will ride with DRL because it look so awesome.
And if we point out the oncoming Dominar to switch to low beam, he may just think. LOL its a BS4, I cant turn off my Headlights.

I was using DRL untill a autowala near Sakleshpur asked me to turn off headlight and said he didn't see anything because of my light, had few more people pointing out to my lights where I learned that its not the way to use it.. And being part of DOCB, we started checking the High beam indicator on the secondary console as soon as we start the bike.. Now its a habbit.

Lets spread the awareness.

(think about Activa which sells nearly 2 lacs a month, I cant imagine our roads next year with these LEDs)

ECU Update 117 / Re: My 117 ECU update review
« on: July 12, 2018, 11:51:43 PM »
Good to hear you are happy with 117 update but point no. 6 is little too much of a Exaggeration  :P
I'm 100% sure its a 6th gear and not 3rd

A really good initiative.. but seems like its limited only to Delhi at the moment, hope we have the same in Bangalore too.
here we need to go to the RTO from where the license is generated to get a smart card license.
hope we see digitization in RTO soon.

Ride, Rider stories & Travelogues / Re: She is almost a year old!!
« on: July 10, 2018, 09:43:44 PM »
I really enjoyed reading your posts Rohit. And this one is even better. Feels like I should also sum up my story of buying Dominar and post it here.  8)

Hi Nikhil.. Try the ones from TBG.. they cost around 5k but the leather and feel is really good.
Even I am planning for full Gauntlets but will wait till this rainy season gets over :)

9
Even I have the same query. Lot of people are getting it replaced at around 25k. Mine reaching near 23k.
Need to know the genuine symptoms of a wornout clutch plate..
Shocking to hear the clutch life is so less for dominar.
For my pulsar it lasted some 9 years and more than 1.5 lac kms.

When I was planning to buy Dominar itself I started searching for a good helmet and gloves, at that moment of time all known YouTube'rs were talking about BBG, I thought this is the best brand out there (i didnt even knew brands like solace, tbg exist  :o )
I got to know there are 3 types of gloves we can use
One is a normal rider glove type (like probiker) for city use
Semi Gauntlet gloves for touring
Full Gauntlet for racing

Obviously I was not planning any track and straigh away finalized to buy semi gauntlet glove
in this section BBG was offering the best one at the given price of Rs.2800. I checked the Rynox and i didnt like it
I bought it from Adheshwars almost 15 days before i bought my bike.

PROS
I must say after using almost every day for past 1 year and 3 months, its really glove
The glove gives good protection to Knucke, fingers and palm
Very good quality materials used

CONS
The internal stitching and finish near the fingertips could have been better
Its not even water resistant  (Leather gloves not supposed to be used in rain ;D )
after riding in rain, the glove started to fade and now its started tearing off near the palm area (these can be expected from a glove which used for daily rides for last one year)

Do I recommend this Glove
YES - if you specifically looking for semi gauntlet gloves

I have been using this Leiidor jacket from a year now.
I was in a hurry to buy Jacket, tried all the jackets but they were not fitting properly
I was unaware that there is a option to customize jackets.
When the Leiidor seller approached and said they can give a custom fit jacket, I was so happy and went ahead and paid without a second thought as the final price offered was Rs.8000
(MRP of jacket was Rs.6899, Rain liner was separate another Rs.1500, and L2 pack protector for Rs.1500)

But i got the jacket after a month of wait , that too with default size which was not fitting me again after 2 months of follow up i got the better fitted jacket (still not the perfect fit)
I given up on them and started using it.
Due to this bad experience, I have never recommended this jacket brand to anyone in our group.

PROS
Jacket fabric quality is awesome, its fully breathable and can be used in city traffic without getting much sweat
Overall quality is really good and feels premium

Cons
Back protector supplied with the jacket is Foam
Doesnt come with thermal or rain liner
Shoulder and Elbow Armors are Knox L1 and has bit harder feel, in long rides they hurt the elbow section
The reflective materials are very less in this jacket, absolutely nothing on hands

Do I recommend this jacket?
NO -  there are a lot of better options in the market at the same price.

Which Helmet? Tips on buying a good helmet / Re: SMK Twister
« on: July 05, 2018, 11:33:27 PM »

One can install the Bluetooth headset from SMK itself for the helmet. It fits exactly in the slot provided and would reduce the wine noise a lot. Costs around ₹4000 but has no intercom function is what I'm told. If anyone has used it, please provide a review of the same.

Actually not a good idea to use the vendor specific device
1. It won't be compatible with other helmets
2.they charge a premium for making it a brand specific

Rather buy 2 BTS2 in the same price and can be paired together..
Thats my idea at the moment.

By the way the insulation tape trick is working really well
Earlier wind noise was heard at 70
Now its silent till 90

I can say 30% reduction in wind noise after this trick.

These tyres looks good as well the specs. The downside of Metzeler or Pirellis is the tire life, they wear out as quick as 10000kms,
The Bike wale reports seems to be promising
But better to wait to get some short term usage reviews
The price is almost near to Metzeler M7. I hope the Indian manufacturer does well to edge out the competition
At the end consumer is the one who gets benefited.

Here is a update to the link Tushar shared earlier.

Hi Shreyas.. Since Auto service BSK is authorized SC and using Motul Oil, then why dont you approach them once?
Literally they are the ones used Motul on your bike.
If warranty gets void because of Motul then they shouldn't be using it.. I feel something is fishy here..

Can you update whats the current status of the bike?
The repair work started or still under warranty discussion??

« on: July 05, 2018, 12:37:39 PM »
Even I need to know if the BTS2 connects with other brand intercom. I remember someone saying it wont connect with other brands.
I'm planning to buy another Bluetooth intercom and was thinking to buy only BTS2 because they both connect, if it an connect with E6, i prefer to buy E6 only  :P
