Re:CBZ xtreme 2011-15000kms update

My "Silver King",the name with which i call my bike has completed 15000 kms...

Got it serviced today at the service centre of hero...
Normal paid service done...
No change of engine oil...
I asked for the 15T front sproket of the achiever,but they said you need to buy the whole kit,so i canceled the idea of buying it from the svc....

Now things which I have done as a aftermarket modifications...
Buying a 15T sproket and fitting it....
Benefits-Lower stress on the engine when cruising on highways,Higher top end,Taller gearing,increased mileage(kmpl).
Cons-A little bit sluggish in pickup.

Engine oil also changed outside service centre.
Oil used-CASTROL POWER1-10w30 semi synth....

Mileage-its constantly giving me 47-50 kmpl in city as well as highway conditions(ratio 40:60)..

Why change oil outside? Take it to the service center and ask them to put it in. Majority of the mechanics outside don't even know how to operate a wrench properly and end up messing the groves of the oil drain nut or at times, over tighten it.

I make sure to watch every little step while the mechanic is opening or closing the nut...
I bow down on my knees to make sure everything is fine and he is not able to screw up anything....

Things to be done Before heading towards Leh
1- Rear tyre change

Engine is Smooth,Gear shifts a little hard,but they will ease out with time.
Now the damping is smooth of front shockers. Before the service it had started leaking a bit,and there was always a Kat sound when the bike hit any pothole or speed breaker.
Now the sound is gone,and smooth ride throughout.

Mileage constantly getting 40-45 within city with 60+ speeds. Will increase if ride it in the range of 45-55 kmph.
