The application of wear particle analysis and ferrography in particular is an effective means to identify and respond to the maintenance needs of bike engine. The wear particles contained in used lubricant oil samples are collected from the engine and gearbox of a Hero Honda Splendor bike. Ferrographic and elemental analyses have been employed to determine the general information about the vehicle performance. The analyzed information throws light on the physical condition of used oil, and the wear condition of the parts from gearbox and main engine.


In the metal industry that manufactures dies and molds for cold working operation, AISI D2 steel is used due to its high wear resistance. AISI D2 steel is High Carbon High Chromium Steel (HCHCr) having sufficiently tough core; the high chromium and carbon content governs the good wear and corrosion resistance properties of D2 steel. The drawing operations involve high impact pressures and high friction. Due to this, the industry faces problems such as surface wear out and dimensional inaccuracy. Hence, surface modification is necessary to improve the surface properties such as surface hardness, surface roughness, wear resistance and friction.
