Issues with new bike

Hello from India. Just for my G310R couple of weeks back, odo ticked 350 kms and started getting a mild rattle or knocking sound, dont know if that is due to chain.. surprisingly the nosie reduces with pillion on it. Has any one experienced this ? A mild squeeking noise has also started sounding.. gosh, clutch gets stuck sometimes specially shifting down.. disappointed

I'd suggest checking your rear chain tension and lubrication. In the first few hundred km on a new chain, it will stretch, so you may find it has got a bit slack which can affect gear selection. Also a dry chain can make sqeaking noises too.

Where is the noise coming from? Also the bike is known to be getting stuck in the first 1,000km and show a " -- " sign when upshifting/downshifting.

I missed a shift into first early on and got the --. This is the first 6 speed in along time and I just plain forgot to make the final downshift correctly. I had a bad rattling noise on another bike and when I removed the saddlebag to work on it the rattle was in the bag. It was my coffee pot. Moral of this story, make certain of the source of a noise before trying to fix it. Chain tension and lubrication are important. With a left hand chain and no center stand it is a hard for me to check, so I bought a paddock stand.
