At 4000kms you can opt to do a minor service the first thing is to dump the engine oil no matter how clean it looks you will have gunk in it change your oil filter as well. You can change the fork oil if you want but it is not needed unless it is orignal from 2005.Clean your tank out and change your fuel filter have a look at your plugs if thay have a lot of carbon change them thay are cheep. If you want to decarbon put in hot plugs and ride your bike for a good hour and then take them out do not leave them in have a look at the needle and seat in your carbi if the needle fits snug in the seat then they are fine don't forget your chain and sprockets if you can slide your chain back and forth while it is on your rear sprocket it will need replaceing have a look at the teeth make shore they are not missing or bent. I hope this help you out!

Bajaj Pulsar stops after some KMs

Hi, Surender you need to unblock the fuel tank vent line if it has one if it does not then you need to unblock the fuel cap venting system drill a small hole in the cap that will allow venting but no fuel escape or replace the fuel cap with a new one for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

There are 225000 km on a used mercury cougar that i am interested in buying and i was wondering if with that amount of kms, is there much life left in it and are there any occuring problems that you have...

A vehicle with that many kms does not present a problem. It all has to do with how well the vehicle was maintained, are the kms more highway or city, and any all problems the previous owners had. The amount of kms does not determine the amount of time left. Perform the necessary maintenance (oil, filters, plugs and wires, etc) and the vehicle will last as long as properly maintained.

Honda Unicorn, after running for some kms, does not accelerate

Rust in the tank is not good. Put a liquid fuel tank liner in it to seal off the rust for good. Clean the carb and install an in-line fuel filter. Where are you getting gas? You may be putting bad gas in the tank, gas with a bit of water in it.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

Is decarbonising is necessary

Hi! With modern fuels and oils there really shouldn't be any need to de-carbonise.(Unlees Mixture is incorrect?) If you are really concerned then try a quality fuel additive, read fully the directions for use and Bingo job's a good-un.
Fork oil change, is there a reason? are the forks weak? any seapage? if not leave well alone as you may open a Hornets Nest.
Telescopic forks/dampers use very light oil for suspension, too much will blow oil seals, so if you are determined to change the fluid then make sure the correct viscosity is used and critically the correct amount/quantity. Cleanliness is of the utmost!
Good Luck!
