This thread starts with a sad note, My brother in law passed away & his bike was parked for almost a month. My sister gave me this bike, which indeed is helping me to manage the present situation.
After a short discussion with my father & my close friend, I decided to buy this bike (will make payment later). But as we all know, the restoration bug within me woke up a few days ago & started listing all the problems in the bike. Here it goes..
- Front Wheel Bearings worn out
- Front brakes Nill
- Rear wheel bearings worn 50% atleast
- dynamo not charging battery
- Vehicle lock in pathetic condition
- Front fork oil leak & bearings making noise
- Brake pedal return spring damaged
- Indicator buzzer not working (very weak)
Here is the bike Today's DIYs
It had the dikki box, very uncomfortable & risky for rear passenger so removed it.
Got the handle lock cum ingition switch replaced with MINDA - 330Rs. Full kit costs around 530/- (I was just worried about the one lock)
Checked the fuse, its alright
Removed battery, topped it up with distilled water & check the voltage. Its in good condition.
Used a piece of yoga mat for damping the battery rattles
Yesterday itself I got these works done at the garage
front wheel bearings (2Nos) changed
Wheel bearing cost: Rs.100/- each x 2Nos - SKF Brand
Front brake shoe: Rs.90/- - ASK COMPANY (never ever buy this, I should have been carefull)
Tightening of wheel bolts, chain, fork nut, rear brakes & test ride by mechanic.
