There will be two long stretches in this circuit without any Petro pumps. First one will be powari/recong peo to kaza (about 225 km) and the second one is kaza to manali (about 200 km). I guess your bike should be able to cover both these sections on one full tank otherwise can carry one plastic Jerry can of either 5 or 10 liters and that should be sufficient.

About mechanic, they may not be available at both these sections. So it would be good to get the bike checked once at recong peo and again at kaza.

For mobile connectivity, bsnl and Airtel will be your best bet..

Wait others to comment..[emoji4]

Losar onwards you won't find mechanics , but you will get lots of bike riders all along your trip.

BSNL is the Best regarding connectivity , from losar till Gramphu all most no connectivity .

Rest experts have answered all your queries.
