  • Regular cleaning of the air filter.
  • Regular checking of the ignition system with special attention to spark plug, plug gap, ignition coil, condenser, leads ignition timing & battery voltage.
  • Proper Valve tappet clearance.
  • Steering and wheel alignment.
  • Tyre pressure and tyre wear etc.
  • Always go to a trained mechanic for servicing your vehicles

Do’s and Don’ts

  • After the vehicle has been parked / unused for a long time (three to four weeks) the engine might require tuning.
  • Switch off the engine for stops of more than two minutes.
  • At high speeds fuel consumption and exhaust pollution increases.
  • Do not press the accelerator more than necessary.
  • Do not use the choke unless absolutely necessary and also do not drive with your foot on the clutch.
