Hello Everyone, hope all are fine and doing good.

I needed suggestions from you as I want to change the rear tyre of my Jupiter. It has some life left but is losing grip in corners. So don't want to take risk and keep using it.

Which Tyre will be good?

CEAT MILAZE
Stock TVS Tyre
MRF or
Michellin City Pro/ Appollo?

Michelin City Pro is the best one for comfort, but threadwise life is short(Mine lasted only 11kkm).
TVS is pathetic, with grip and also life. (For me off from list).
MRF vs CEAT, both are great, currently, I am using Ceat Milaze in rear, while in front it is still stock TVS.

Note- For front tyres, don't go for thread pattern like that in Ceat Milaze, as it causes handle vibration and bumpiness to the ride.
For front, MRF(Zapper pattern) is better (The normal pattern).

Also , I use N2, and check monthly once, ensuring Tyre is given optimum care.

Thanks for your inputs, The front tyre can easily last another 10k km for me. The rear tyre needs replacement now.

Will go for either MRF or CEAT.

8th Service Update & Jupiter Turns 2:

Hello TAI members, hope you all are safe. This week Jupiter turned 2 on 14th October. Have gone through many ups and downs in the last few months. I lost my father in the month of July, Jupiter was used by him mostly and it was very convenient for him to ride. That was the main reason we went for a scooter instead of bike.

In the two years it has covered 21000km. No breakdowns, not even puncture. Though had to replace battery twice and vibration issue. apart from these there are no issues. Two weeks ago got it serviced at TVS at 20383km, there were two things to address.

1. Indicator button was not working maybe due to standing in rain.
2. Suspension was hard.

Left it in the showroom in the morning and collected at 4pm. The bill was 650/_ and indicator was working properly now. The suspension still feels hard, maybe needs fork oil replacement. One thing I noticed is that the mileage has dropped after the service. It used to return around 40kmpl but not a full tank gives a range of 150-160km. Have mentioned this to the Service advisor also. Don't know what could be the reason for sudden drop in the mileage.
