Safeena had her second service yesterday-nothing but a wash,clean and a thorough fastener re torque -all various vibrations and resonances have disappeared-this big single is sensitive to fastener tightness and will be checking everything every 2500kms

@Gaurav Chopra Is your Visor after market or you've cut OEM visor by half? Looks cute than OEM. You can try a dark tint to it to see if it's more sporty.
I cut the stock windshield short by 130mm from the top to stop the buffeting at the helmet level -now get a smooth air flow all around

While riding in a new area today,hit a huge sharp edge crater in the road and the front rim took a whopping hit-got bent and a wobble started.Took it straight to a rim straightening guy and had the rim trued again-1hour and Rs150.This pizza cutter 21" front wheel with a low 90/90 profile may be good enough for impacts on dirt but has too less air cushion to absorb hits from solid tar-a 19" with a fatter tyre and 100 profile will be much better in absorbing sharp corner hits in the urban environment and the bike will steer better too-and with less gyroscopic force will be easier on the steering head bearings and frame too
