Re: Riding in top gear
If you are carefull with splendor it can deliver you Good Mileage but if you play with it then it will drop like any thing. my friend who have passion with 80KM PL got only 33KM PL when he did some extraordinary stuff (bit off roading through the backyard and some ticks with the bike ) so be care full and go between 65-75 to get a descent mileage.

I am a mechanic . If we cross the economy mark then we get 50-55.mainly the rear tyre must be normal bit thats gets us well mileage.if clutch plate,vail,air filter,carborator are weak then we cant get good mileage.so drive economycally and save bike maintnence and petrol.
The Honda Splendor has a 4 stroke engine and can have worn valve seals or rings. If the engine smokes while riding it may be time for a top end re-build. You should complete a compression test to evaluate the condition of the piston and valves. If the compression is low ( under 120 psi ) it is time for a top end re-build.
I've come across this motorcycle and complaint of poor "mileage" several times. There are so many variables to the question it's almost impossible to predict what "mileage you will achieve. Things like a single rider with light gear, riding two up will reduce mileage, running the motorcycle at high speed will reduce mileage, city traffic or open road makes a huge difference even in this motorcycle. You are not helping mileage sitting there with the engine running while in traffic. Your driving habits are you hard on the throttle when you take off from a stop? Sounds as if I'm scolding you but if you are concerned about mileage on this motorcycle then you need to adjust your riding style AND the biggest this with the Honda Hero is its tires. The tires on the Honda Hero are specially designed for that motorcycles performance and mileage, if they are under inflated you will get poor gas mileage. Check your tire pressure or have the dealer do it if you don't have the gauge.
There are many factors in fuel economy when it comes to a small motorcycle. The biggest is riding style or habits followed closely by weight. Be this weight a single rider with gear, two riders with gear and high speed. If your motorcycle is in proper mechanical order it should produce close to what the dealer said. Test conditions and real life conditions are much different. If you test your motorcycle with you alone on it keeping the speed below 70kph and have the proper tire pressure operate the motorcycle conservatively you will see a huge increase in your KPL. Check your owners manual for the correct tire pressure and adjust your tire pressure accordingly. I suspect you are operating with lower pressure then what is specified. These are great looking small bikes with exceptional fuel economy treat it right and it will reward you, ride it hard and it'll cost you.
change oil every 1500kms use shell engin oil thats gives better milage Use unleaded petrol dont use xtraprimium or speed petrol, Clean carburator every 5000kms, ride 50-60kmph in 5th gear [top gear],check air pressur of tyre, do not use clutch wile riding.,,,
