Hi, i bought HERO HONDA KARIZMA before 3months and it went through its first servicng only,and it`s pickup has reduced so much and it is giving mileage about 27-29.Thats it. I am very disappointed because my friend has told me that his karizma was giving about 33 in city and 40 on highways. To be fair i drove it at a high speeds just from the day as i bought it.Have i done a mistake driving it at top speeds? please show me some solution,sir.Please tell me the exact methods to maintain this beauty.All i need is to get the past condition of my bike back. thanks in advance,sir. my id: bentuur20@yahoo.co.in

Ask your friend do an actual milage check, not just an inexact " I get about 40mpg " as he says. What is he really getting? Driving at top speeds is better for an engine than city driving. Have the dealer do a compression check. The valves may need to be adjusted, (minor thing). If riding highway, get a larger front sprocket, i.e.13 tooth sprocket changed to a 14 tooth sprocket. This will help mpg. Driving fast is not good for mpg.

As far as owner maintenance, the best thing you can do for yourself is to ride over to the dealer to pick up a can of chain lube and ask them to give you some instructions in owner maintenance for your bike. They will be happy to show you what you can do and HOW to do it. This includes adjusting the chain. Don't be bashful. Ask questions; "How often is that needed? What do I look for? What tells me I need to bring it in? Can I get those parts here?" Build a relationship with your dealer. You will both benefit more that way than if I just tell you how to do the adjustments.

    Hi, I am not a mech but think know more than them. Coz mech don't give u proper solution, if they do so they can't make money. You should first adjust the RPM screw on the right hand side of your byk near the engine, that will bring the RPM to its normal position, if it doesen't work you need to adjust another screw on the opposite side with a screw driver simultaneously. U can change or clean your accelerator wire which might get stuck inside the insulation once it is old or due to water and dust. Also u can check the choke cable as it is the most problamatic part of the byk (especially Karizma). Advised to change a new set which costs around 250 to 300 for a complete set. hope this helps to overcome your prob (Binod)

Over speeding is not the problem, you can ride your brand new bike at top speed and this is not going to affect the engine performance or the fuel consumption, but make sure you did not rip the bike till the engine settle down, because in the new bike engines you can find some fine flings in the oil and thats the reason people advice you to replace the engine oil at 250 kms, if you rip the bike before the first oil change the bore and the cylinder will get scratched and this will affect the performance and the millage. Where as in you case the problem is with the tuning, the people from hero honda might have cleaned the carburator and so the tuning got changed, so fine tune the air petrol screws and try to bring the engine RPM to 750-900. you will get both the performance and the power.

    over speeding at initial stage is very dangerous to your bike.first of all u have to read the user manual,in that it will be properly written how to maintain your bike in first 2000 or 3000 km whatever company says.if your going in over 50kph in first 2000km then surely your piston and bore got scratches.at least u should have to maintain speed limit for 1000km.u may be thinking that y should we control speed because its new bike and every parts are new?that is the problem my friend first 2000km piston should not work in that much speed and in at least 1000 km only it will get start catching carbon in piston heads,it is the main thing.now i think you understood why your bike is not giving performance.do one thing change your bikes piston with TOP pro and re-bore it and maintain the speed limit for 1000km.after 1000km change your engine oil clean your carburretor change your air filter and spark,i prefer NGK Spark for u.now check your bikes performance and mileage

The mileage of Karizma ZMR is quite good of about 35-45 kilometers per liter keeping in mind its high displacement engine.
If its is below 35-45 then you immediate contact your dealer instead making any experiments on it.

Hi, Me_sumitok take it bake to where it was serviced and I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
