    Since GS dial is transparent from below so you don't need to remove paint, other wise if it is painted you need thinner to remove the paint from below. otherwise it will not glow..
    this takes just 200RS to do every thing. and it is not difficult. try it yourself.

    It is much much better if we start caring our bike when it is brand new instead of deferring it. I remember you did this sort of caring for your brand new CG as well applying wax and cleaning and all that.

    I know many who care their CGs just like this because they are normal and love to care. Does this mean CG is also on low quality?

    With due respect, you are suffering from CG classic syndrome. Please go and have a life and stop doing all this.

    You are a die hard CG classic fan so just enjoy your ride. You are blessed that you have just one love. Just go with your love that is your CG. Have peace . Thank you.
    Dude i also take care of my bike but taking temp readings? GS-150 nahi B747 ho gaya which is ready for take-off.

    Mileage is around 2300 km.

    Chain, cover washed with kerosene oil, lubricated.
    Rear sprocket damper (rubber) replaced.(Khattak sound is still there, but with some less intensity).
    Down shifting got better.

    Rear brake shoes were behaving something wrong,
    free flow of rear wheel was not OK,
    Gets stuck at certain point.
    Opened and inspected,
    Found misaligned shoes.(Manufacturing fault from the pivot side, IMO)

    Due to warranty, visited work shop,
    They explained the whole lot of shoes is defective.
    Rubbed one side a little with sand paper. Problem solved. (in their opinion)

    Excellent work.
    Please explain in detail how did you manage to clean the front chain sprocket?
    Did you wash it with water or just kero?
    I use wd 40 to remove the '**** Bala' .
    And what did you use to lubricate the chain?
    Do you see any change in flow of bike? Like has it become more smooth?

    Even on 2300 Km, drum rubbers can not be in such condition, may be your assumption is right that fitting was not done properly at factory. Brake pads are faulty by looking, good that you have replaced it.

    Thanks.
    Front chain sprocket and all other stuff cleaned with kerosene oil using textile cleaning gun.(will post pics later)
    No water at all.
    Till to date bike never been washed. Just dry cleaning.
    For chain lube, first soaked in 20w50 engine oil, then mounted and sprayed the grease.
    Bike is very smooth after this procedure.

    @basic
    Thanks for sharing the info.
    I used 2 stroke motor oil which I had kept for lubricating the air filter. Used it to lubricate chain as well. But did not greased it. Now that you have mentioned that you have also applied a coat of grease over the oil I will do it next time. In Sha Allah.

    I washed and waxed my bike yesterday. Will take pics in daylight and post.

    Grease on chain in dusty climate of karachi Bad idea.
    greasing on chain can be one but its process is kind of long and i highly doubt any mechanic follows them here.
    i read in some thread xulfiqar mentioned it in detail.
    at plaza u can find proper chain lubricant use it.
    here is a link which might help u with chain lubrication.
