    First Service 2021Meteor 350

    HI Mark, I used Permatex Ultrablack 82180 from Amazon for about $5.00. There are many competing products and I did not make an informed comparison so I am not saying this is the best product. But it has always worked for me. Thanks for the torque numbers! And have fun doing your first service.

    Oil Leak

    Hey there Robert, thanks very much for your kind reply. What you suggested was kinda my plan using gap specs from a 79 CRX 500 I built years ago. However after watching a few more first service videos from India I found one that showed the gaps being used: .08 mm intake and .18 mm exhaust. Now...

    Post up your Meteor 350 content here!

    First fill-up at 170 miles took 2.005 gallons (USA), so 85 MPG. This was riding the bike very gently for initial break-in and never exceeding 45 MPH.
