    I have no body of knowledge regarding 'Micro Cloth's" absorbing capabilities, But cotton has very good absorbing power. I use micro fiber to clean my Inspiron 5110 and surely it removes dust in quite appropriate manner. But i high doubt its absorbing potential.

    Well thats nice.. Can you share the price? Micro fiber cloth is good as it prevents scratching.

    i have one question, 2 days ago i have done my first tuning after completing first 1000 KM. everything is fine and the bike is now feeling much lighter and driving nicely, but i am facing one issue maybe its an issue or not. but before the tuning when i am giving acceleration the bike is easily going to 100+ and now i am accelerating the bike is going towards 100 and suddenly the speedometer is coming back to 80 and its not getting much RPM, so according to my very very little knowledge i thing he has tightened the tappets more than enough, so can you suggest me any professional mechanic according to your experience.. Thanks..

    1. May be tappets are more than tight. Its hot now. So tappets be somewhat loose

    2. Check the fuel and air mixture. After first tuning may be he messed up with the mixture

    For Minor Rusting:

    1. Disassemble the fuel tank from bike completely
    2. Block all the holes completely
    3. Fill the fuel tank completely with oil (May be used) and leave it for a day or two
    4. Drain the fuel tank and fill it with some petrol, shake it will and drain. Do it three to four times
    5. Leave it for sometime to dry.

    For some heavy rusting:

    1. Disassemble the fuel tank from bike completely
    2. Block all the holes completely
    3. Find some gravel (Small size in local language "Barej Bajri")
    4. Put it in fuel tank with some caustic soda and small amount of water.
    5. Shake it well, indeed very well
    6. Dry and wash with some petrol

    For very heavy rusting

    1. Disassemble the fuel tank from bike completely
    2. Block all the holes completely
    3. Electrolyic setup that will remove all the rust.
    4. This involves using a car battery charger, filling the tank with water/baking soda mix (some use a salt mix). This will remove any hidden rust
    5. Electrolytic Rust Removal From A Motorcycle Gas Tank

    Thanks.
    From manual check page no 35, 40 and 45, may be you have one of those problems.

    1. Have you cleaned the air filter?
    2. Best way to check the air-fuel mixture is by assessing the the Color of plug itself

    Check this thread, You will understand how

    Thanks, my plug was also dark like this from top, so in the tuning he just cleaned the filter, and adjusted the tappets and then wasted a lot of petrol in with his air spray and also he cleaned the filter with the petrol. and some nuts tight and that's it. nothing special, so that's why i am asking if you suggest me some good mechanic so i can consult with him and show him all this. as i am not good in bike adjustments. and not able to do anything. even don't have any tools.
