I'll answer a few of these.Question #1 :
Early today, when I was on my way home, I felt like my bike is burning my tights during a short traffic. I don't know if its overheating coz the temperature has only 3 bars. Is there something wrong with my bike? its a 3 days old bike... or am I doing something wrong with it? Does it help if I add more coolant? PS: I can only feel it during traffics, so sometimes I feel like turning the engine off.
Question #2 :
I feel like my clutch is very sensitive... Like I need to pull it all the way down to stop the bike. I'm quite new to these things So is it just the bolts adjusters near the lever? or its normal? Coz my hands gets tired really quick especially during traffics...
Question #3 :
Sometimes, its hard to start the bike especially if its warm. Is there something wrong with my bike? But it starts really easy when cold.
Question #4 :
Currently I'm using Unleaded 91 Octane fuel and it smells lol. My dealer says not to use any higher level octanes due to that higher octanes (95+) contains chemical which I entirely doubt her theory coz I've been using 95+ octane premium Shell all the time in my Honda CBR150R and so far, it never caused me any problem at all. Can I use higher Octane fuels on my R3? Would this affect my Question #1 and the smell? LOL
Thank you guys for your insights :nerd: Truly grateful ^_^
The heat coming from the engine onto your leg is normal. It was probably your right leg? I noticed this heat when I ride my wife's R3, definitely hotter than my own motorcycle.
The hard/slow start on hot days seems to be an unfortunate characteristic of this bike.
There is one thread dedicated to it
IMO, 95 octane is complete overkill and unnecessary, especially for your 150cc honda. Waste of money, and the only benefit it is doing is appeasing your own mind. Unless octane ratings are different in the PI, but guessing not. 89 octane is going in my wife's R3, just use what the manual tells you to use, and if I recall correctly they recommend 87 minimum. If you need 91 or higher, the manual will specifically ask you to put premium, but that is not the case for your R3. Is your bike still new/low miles? That engine burning smell is completely normal for the first few hundred miles and will smell like that regardless of what fuel you put in it.
