Tips for increasing the bike mileage..
*For 4 stroke engines,switch on the bikes with the chokes and self start and then leave the bike without acceleration for 10-15 secs so that the oil has the time to flow through the engine and has enough circulation to run the bike
*Don't put the choke for a too long time as it may fill the engine with fuel
*Don't over accelerate your bike as soon as you start the bike
*Switch off your bikes during a long wait or a traffic signal
*Remove the parts that are not useful for such as saree guard,bike box and some extrafittings
*Change and check the oil regularly as recommended by your service technician
*Check your tyre air pressure every month.Low filled tyres can give a tremendous decrease in mileage and high filled tyres than the limit can give a high mileage but reduces the stability and so an optimum pressure yields best results
*Don't suddenly drop from higher gears to lower gears as it may lead to a much higher rpm and decrease in bike fuel efficiency
*Shift gears at correct rpm and avoid over riding at particular gear
*Usually,always riding in higher gears give better mileage
*Don't change the gears and brake often in Cities as it may tire the engine
*Service the bike regularly as given in your bike manual
*Use the brakes,clutch and the throttle judiciously for optimum mileage
*Don't use the clutch when accelerating
*Check the batteries,chain slackness,Correct petrol amount and the brakes
*And finally check the bike tire grips and change the tire even before it seems to be worn out
