After 35,000 km of riding and even with regular care and maintenance, I started witnessing a weird metal clinging noise from the Karizma’s engine.
Since it was the engine in the doubt, I decided against the DIY route and with a ‘heavy heart’ dropped the bike at the Hero Authorized Service Center’. Having specifically informed them about the noise, they didn’t do much and carried out the regular ‘oil-change, chain lubing and air filter cleaning’ job which I can myself manage to do at home.
I was apprehensive of using the bike without getting this engine problem solved. I didn’t wish the current issue to have a snow ball effect causing more harm to the engine.
Luckily, I came across Amjad who owns and runs the Bike Gurus garage. See the video to know what happened next!
