Check and see if it is running rich by pulling the plugs and see if they are black. If they are than you have carb problems or timing issue's.

Hi, Jamal you may want to clean your air filters and make sure the throttle cables are adjusted for maximum slide opening 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 bike 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 problem.

I have an Audi A4 2008 and i need to disable the noise which comes out when I speed over 130 km/h. Kindly help

What noise are you referring to. Is it engine noise, or wind noise, or road noise? Is the noise there at cruising speed or just when you are accelerating? Please clarify.

Hello, On this Indian bike ( like most of Japan made bikes) with using a standard oil, should replace every 2000 KM to maintain your bike performance.

When i accelerate from standing stop engine

It sounds like you need a tune up. I would first check the coil wire and cap and rotor then the plugs and wires. It is also possible you need a fuel filter air filter and PCV valve.
I hope this helps.
