Is there any effect of installing the free flow muffler in place of stock exhausts as u have replaced the stock mufflers with AEW exhausts with removable baffel it didn't sound too loud with baffels it's something little louder than stock Rumble and exhaust note is very sweet but when  I remove the baffels it's a complete different exhaust note.

As I have installed these exhausts does the ECU alter the fueling or it remains the same please suggest any pros and cons of installing the free flow exhaust

I don't know specifically about the Interceptor, but in general, the latest ECU's have some flexibility to their programs to accommodate changes in the environment and equipment as the mileage piles up on the bike. Since the fuel richness is altered by the lambda sensor, air temperature, the engine temperature, the air pressure and maybe one or two other things, it is likely that some minor changes to the engine breathing might not result in a lean running condition. Of course there are several systems that will allow you to (illegally) alter the computer programming, but there are also relatively cheap devices that just insert a resistor into the wiring between the air temperature probe and the ECU, causing it to believe that the air temperature is colder than it really is, resulting in the computer enriching the mixture throughout the entire power curve, which may help when installing a freer-flowing air cleaner or muffler. 

One such device is the Booster Plug.  I installed one on my 2009 BMW F650GS and it seemed to help smooth out its lean surges through the power band.  Attached are a couple of photos of the gadget installed on that bike.  I think the price was around $100 USD, so there are likely less expensive versions on the market, but it was very well designed and only took a few minutes to install.

On  a bullet, the main side effect of free flow mufflers is a tendency to backfire, particularly when decelerating.  No idea if the interceptor will have similar issues.

Chances are great that the mufflers caused a lean condition. Remedy is not known to me at this time.

Today changed my bikes oil and oil filter the quantity of oil used in refill is 3.1 liters and grade is 10W-50 liquid gun marketed by Royal Enfield thinking of changing the oil to Motul 300 V at next service which will be done at 10000 kms should I stick with Royal Enfields Liquid Gun oil or shift to Motul 300 V fully synthetic oil

Motul and Liquid Gun, at least your Indian formulations, are rare here in America. Those brands are rarely seen on the retail shelves here, and are generally sort of a special order or "connoisseur's item". Frankly, more important is that you use the SAE and JASO grade designated in the Owner's Manual, whatever the brand. At this point, still breaking in your bike, a quality non-synthetic or semi-synthetic might be best. You WANT a little bit of wear so that everything "seats in" pleasantly. If you want to keep that bike as long as I've held onto mine, nearly 30 years for the '67 Norton and over 40 for my '57 Zuendapp Bella scooter, both of which were my "daily drivers" of yore and still running fine, then I truly believe you might do well to add an "extra" oil change and new filter at about 5,000 kilometers, even of you have to pay for or do it yourself. It will flush out those inevitable break-in cruds before they can do any longterm harm. Just because Enfield wants to please some faraway unelected Council of Euro Environmental Gnomes with an over-extended oil change regimen doesn't mean it's good for your bike. If it were mine, I'd slap on a couple of those little neodynium magnets onto the drain plugs to help grab any gritty iron bits floating by, and give her an extra flush BEFORE going "full synthetic" at 10,000 km. I understand you Indian fellows like to squeeze a Rupee until the wheel spins, and make Scotsmen look like drunken sailors on payday, but just do the extra oil change "for the children", OK?
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

The oil used by RE dealer is Liquid Gun Fully Synthetic 10W-50 to API SL or JASO MA2 its manufactured by Total lubricants and marketed by Royal Enfield under name Liquid Gun.

Will change the oil and filter again at 5000 kms as I changed the engine oil in my classic 500 chrome every 2000 kms asked the dealer if semi synthetic  oil can be used dealer said it will void the warranty and have to stick with RE recommended Fully Synthetic oil only.

If full synthetic is what it needs for the warranty, then full synthetic it is. The most important thing is to keep that oil nice and fresh, especially the first year or so.

Will do at least 2-3 oil changes in 10000 kms after oil change bike feels more refined and the engine feels much relaxed

Oh forget to tell the oil which I drained from the interceptor 650 it's much clean without any debris or small flakes which is common in classic 500  engine oil change.

Also removed the rare mudflap bike looks much better with the mudflap removed

Hi Guys today got the fork gaitors for my Interceptor  650 is there any benefit of installing the fork gaitors on the front shock absorbers other than looks do they look good or should I leave the shock absorbers without fork gaitors what you guys suggest attaching the pics of fork gaitors

The fork gaitors give an added layer of dust protection.  When properly installed they keep the shafts of the front forks relatively dust free for less wear and tear on the seals.  I installed some on my Rumbler, but went with ones recommended by the mechanic - and he was wrong. They didn't last much at all do to grabbing on the shaft and low quality rubber.  Don't know if the Himalayan gaiters would work, but am considering ordering a pair as I like the looks of less shiny up front - plus the advantage of shielding from dust on our less than stellar roads here in Coffee Country.

Today crossed 1500 kms on my INT650 Bike is running great without any problems have placed order for sump guard (skid plate) but due to some reason RE didnt have stock of these at ware house when asked the reason they said all the sump guards manufactured are exported it's really bad that they can't supply the basic parts to home market and focused mainly on exports.

Any way already placed the order but dont know the time when I get it have to ask is it necessary to install sump guard on INTERCEPTOR 650 as its oil filter is in front of engine my riding is mostly on the highways
