About modifications the battery was changed to 9amps (have to cut weld the body to accommodate the battery ), wiring kit changed two times , switches are from pulsar cdi unit or ignition coil unit is from victor.
Had a couple of accidents one major one and broke my wrist but he kept on running .
Even in future if I can afford to get a Hayabusha my fiero will be with me I think.
I may not be the only one with such high mileage but there would be lot more machine loving folks.
My Fiero was able to clock such a high mileage is because initially it was used by me in college for 3 years, then by my younger brother to his college for another 3-4 years as i bought a pre-worshipped RE Thunderbird & then it went to cousin for another 2 years and is now back with us
I had known that CDI units have tendency to crash if battery goes off, It was learnt the then at service stations & at that time CDI unit alone costed around Rs 400/- which was not a small amount. Hence best way to prevent was to keep battery in pristine condition.
The best thing about the bike is that with 150 CC engine, the dimensions of the bike are quite compact combined with light weight it is breeze to zip past in traffic.
As this model was discontinued around 2003..In fact Suzuki discontinued their collaboration with TVS and later on for some time Fiero was available with TVS badging which later was upgraded to "Fiero F2"...but could never replicate the Suzuki's original reliability.
Fiero, this machine marvel is worth keeping till the end.
