Bike Care Tips

Basics
  1. Read the owner’s guide in detail for an understanding and familiarization with the mechanism and controls. If you have any questions, we recommend that you ask our authorized dealer or service center to ensure you are using the vehicle properly. We also recommend that in case the vehicle may be ridden by anyone other than yourself, you educate them on proper usage. Incorrect vehicle operation can lead to damage.
  2. Maintenance: The ownership experience of any automotive product is strongly affected by usage and maintenance. A vehicle is a machine, and is subject to wear and tear during daily use as well as damage resulting from accidents, adulterated fuel etc. We strongly advise that you study your owner’s manual and follow the maintenance schedules to ensure optimum performance of the machine and a hassle free ownership experience.
  3. Recommended servicing schedules: We offer you a recommended servicing plan of free 2 paid servicings specially programmed to keep your vehicle in perfect running condition during normal daily use for the first two years. Your owner’s manual includes instructions and coupons for availing the company recommended servicing program. The coupons will be accepted at all authorized Mahindra dealerships and service centers. Please follow the recommended servicing schedules.
  4. Service centers and spare parts: Use authorized Mahindra dealerships and service centers for regular maintenance and repairs on your vehicle as these are equipped with necessary trained manpower, equipment and facilities to take care of your vehicle. Please always use genuine Mahindra spare parts as they will ensure safety and longevity of your vehicle.

 Maintenance Tips
Basics of two-wheeler maintenance

Following are the basics for maintaining your two wheeler. Please also refer to the detailed maintenance schedules later in the Owner’s Guide.
  1. Check fuel lines and connections to ensure there is no leakage
  2. Speak plugs must be inspected and cleaned thoroughly
  3. Check engine oil levels and be sure to use recommended grade and quantity only
  4. Always maintain recommended tyre pressures
  5. Clean and adjust carburetors; adjust idling speeds
  6. Check air filter element periodically
  7. Ensure brakes are working well (i.e. not dragging or binding)

Maintenance instructions are based on an assumption that the vehicle will be used exclusively for its designed purpose. Sustained high-speed operation or operation in unusually wet or dusty conditions will require more frequent service than specified in the maintenance schedule. Consult your authorized Mahindra service center for recommendation applicable for your individual needs and usage.

Maintenance precautions

  1. If your vehicle is overturned or involved in a collision, inspect control levers and cables, switches and other vital parts for damage. Do not ride the vehicle if damage impairs safe operation. Have your authorized Mahindra service center inspect the major components including frame, suspension and steering parts for misalignment and damage that you may not be able to detect.
  2. Stop the engine and support the vehicle securely on a level surface before performing any maintenance
  3. Use new, genuine Mahindra spare parts for maintenance and repair as dubious quality parts may impair the safety of your vehicle and effective operation of the emission control systems.

Don’t forget to pay attention to:

Engine oil: Engine oil plays an important role in ensuring smooth operation and maintenance of your vehicle and it is important to maintain a correct engine oil level.

Tyres: Optimum air pressure in the tyres of your vehicle is important for maximum road grip, stability, riding comfort and longevity of the tyres. You should check your tyre pressure regularly and adjust immediately if required. The tyre pressure should be checked when the tyres are cold, before you ride. You must replace your tyres before tread depth at the center falls below a minimum limit of 0.8 mm for front or rear tyre.

Air cleaner: The air cleaner must be serviced at regular intervals. If riding in dusty areas, it should be serviced more frequently.

Battery: Your vehicle (esp. scooter) may be equipped with a battery (located in the glove box) that operates electricals.

  1. Running your vehicle without battery/poor condition of battery can damage several electrical parts.

  2. The battery breather tube must be properly routed. Do not bend or twist the breather tube. A bent or kinked breather tube may pressurize the batter and damage its case.

  3. It is important to ensure that the battery has sufficient electrolyte to avoid sylphation and battery plate damage. Please refer to the owner’s guide on how to ensure electrolyte levels.
 General Tips for maximizing fuel efficiency
While your vehicle has been designed to give maximum fuel efficiency output for its specifications, it is important to understand that fuel efficiency is affected by several extraneous factors. To maximize the mileage you obtain in your daily cycle, following action plan is recommended:
  1. Ensure tyre pressure is maintained at manufacturer recommended levels. Different tyre pressures are recommended for single seat and pillion seat. Observe them carefully.

  2. Brakes - both brakes should have the right amount of free play

  3. Engine oil should be changed religiously and on the dot

  4. Do service your engine and tune it up regularly. Pay special attention to cleaning the carb and maintaining valve clearances. Don't neglect the spark plug, ensure its clean and the gap is set correctly. Replace it if its past its prime.

  5. Use choke on cold starts

  6. Weight on the two wheeler makes a big difference to mileage.

  7. Buy fuel in the morning as it is sold by volume and expands during the day when it gets hot

  8. Keep your two wheeler clean and dust free

  9. Do not tank up to the beam as there can be spillage and petrol can expand and overflow.

  10. Tank up from busy and well known petrol stations where quality and quantity are assured

  11. Do not rev the engine

  12. Use the choke while starting up. Run the two wheeler for a few Km with the choke on and at low revs while the engine warms up after which don't forget to shut off the choke. There is no need to rev or over rev the engine either while starting up or shutting down.

  13. Try and avoid congested roads as far as possible, even if it means you have to take a slightly longer route

  14. Go gentle on the throttle
 Running-in procedure
It is important to properly “run-in” your vehicle during initial 1000 kms to ensure longevity and hassle free running since new engine components wear in quickly. Please follow these instructions during “running-in” period:
  1. Do not exceed a speed limit of 50kmph
  2. Avoid full throttle operation, and rapid acceleration
  3. When you start the engine, run it at idle for a minute to enable the oil to lubricate the engine
  4. Do not run at constant speed. Vary engine speed
 Cleaning procedure
It is important to clean your vehicle regularly to protect surface finish and inspect it for damage, wear and oil seepage.
  1. Avoid spraying high pressure water at the following areas:
    o Wheel hubs. Silencer outlet
    o Ignition switch, handlebar switches and other electrical parts
    o Under seat or in the glove box

  2. After cleaning, rinse the vehicle thoroughly with plenty of clean water to avoid corrosive detergent residues

  3. Dry the vehicle, start the engine and let it run for several minutes

  4. Test the brakes before riding in traffic. Several applications may be necessary to restore normal braking performance
 Anti theft tips
  1. Always lock the steering and never leave the key in the ignition switch
  2. Be sure that the registration information for your vehicle is accurate and correct
  3. Park your vehicle in a locked garage whenever possible
  4. Put your name, address & phone number in your Owner’s Guide and keep it in your vehicle at all times. Often, stolen vehicles are identified by Owner’s Guides which are still with them.
 Non-use maintenance
If your vehicle remains off-road for a long time, some steps for maintenance are required. Following this procedure before storing your vehicle will prevent it from rusting and other possible damage or hazards.
  1. Clean the vehicle thoroughly

  2. Empty all fuel from the fuel tank and carburetor float bowl

  3. Remove the spark plug and put several drops of engine oil into the cylinder. Kick the engine over slowly several time to coat the cylinder wall with oil and reinstall the spark plug

  4. Put the vehicle on a box/stand such that both wheels are raised off the ground. Spray oil on all unpainted metal surfaces to prevent rusting. Avoid getting oil on rubber parts/brake liners

  5. Lubricate control cables

  6. Cover the entire vehicle neatly. Please ensure that the area where the vehicle is stored away is well ventilated and free from any source of flames or spark

  7. Remove batter from vehicle, maintain electrolyte level at upper level.

  8. Ensure the battery if fully charged, and recharge it monthly

  9. Keep the battery away from rain, moisture and direct sunlight. Store it in a cool, dry and safe place.

Preparation for bringing it back into regular use

  1. Clean the vehicle

  2. Check electrolyte level in the battery, charge if necessary and install in the vehicle. Ensure that the battery vent hose is not pinched, and that it is correctly routed

  3. Make sure the spark plugs are tightly fitted

  4. Fill the tank with fuel

  5. Change the engine oil

  6. Go through the daily safety checklist

  7. Check and if required, inflate tyres to recommended air pressure
 Caution for High Altitude Riding
When riding a vehicle at high altitudes, the air-fuel mixture can become excessively rich. Above 1500 meters, driveability and performance may be reduced and fuel consumption may increase. See your authorized Mahindra service center for high altitude adjustments.

Important! Return your vehicle to standard factory specifications when lower altitude riding is desired. Sustained operation at altitudes below 1500 km with high altitude carburetor modifications can cause engine overheating and damage.
