Clutch assembly at 28k kms is a bit unusual, but then i guess the age factor can be counted in here.
Vibhor please post some fresh pics of your car. Do take her out for a detailed photoshoot sometime.

You’re right, Akash. Another issue is that a learner in family has also practiced on this car (Read riding on clutch all times). And yes, I will post some pictures but only after thoroughly cleaning / waxing / polishing it.

Varun, How about creating a separate ownership review of your car, just like mine? There we can discuss in depth about various aspects of your car.

Type-3 Headlamps cost me thousand bucks excluding labor charges. They do not have leveling device. It was a direct fit. The cost of autographix wooden finishing is Rs.700.

That is the traditional M800 look , nicely maintained! BTW you don't use your left side ORVM while driving?
