The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been recalled recently to rectify a few “non-critical technical issues” like rocker shaft and clutch assembly. The customers were communicated by their respective dealers and the repairs will be conducted free of cost.
A Himalayan owner has shared his experience about what has changed in the bike post the recall. The most noticeable improvement comes in the form of reduced tappet noise (the owner remarked about high level of tappet noise at slow speed conditions before recall).
The owner also says that the engine is more refined after the recall and first service (both were executed together). However, the recall fix or the service didn’t quite manage to improve the hard gear shift quality he complained about.
The customer also complained about a malfunctioning fuel gauge but is yet to verify if the issue has been sorted out during the service or not. The Royal Enfield Himalayan is built to withstand the treacherous terrain and climatic conditions of the mighty Himalayas. For its intended purpose, reliability and ruggedness are imperative.
Recently, a freshly delivered Himalayan’s fuel tank started leaking petrol, rendering it completely useless. However, the company promptly fixed the issue.
