Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Yes think ur right about the positioning and air needs to get I to stop the misting. I've got new clocks on but within 2 hours of it being sat I the sun it's started misting slightly.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

It sounds like he did get a dud, and there have been a couple that have needed some extensive warranty work. Misting clocks and notchy head bearings seem to be the most common and it is a shame they can't get on top of those, especially given how basic the problems are. If you're looking for perfec...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

As stated it was not my bike but is a genuine owners view. I only posted it so that there is a balanced overview on the thread and I really want RE to succeed so that it is a viable alternative as I am a prospective future customer.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Sorry to hear your having problems Mike. I had misting so bad I couldn't see the digital info. I tried all the fixes which I have posted on here but no change.
