Alright this thread also has been lying dead for long now! The bike has now clocked 31k KMS and now i need your help guys especially the biker guys.
1.First up tyre change is badly needed now. I am very much satisfied with MRF Zappers provided with the bike and looking forward to buy the same again. Any idea about the cost of the tyre? Should i change the front tyre also , it looks in good condition though.
2.Next its four years now , the battery has also gone kaput. Any suggestions for new battery and also approximate price if possible.
3. Now this is a problem which i have been facing for few months now. The bike in cold start gets switched off whenever i leave the accelerator. If i adjust the idling to a higher setting then after the engine warms up , the idling goes up even higher! If i keep it normal the engine goes off whenever i leave the accelerator till the engine warms. I have not faced this problem all these years. I complained this during service and they said they have adjusted the idling perfectly now , but the problem still exists!
Also go in for a tyre upsize.
Go for 120 section rear.(The Pulsar 180 has that)
No mods needed on rim.
2: Use the battery same wattage. Exide is a decent brand.
3: Dont interfere with the idling RPM. Tune the carb to flow more freely(At the sake of FE). Or live with the problem. It is a typical Bajaj problem. And it has more or less to do with the weak battery.
Thanks for the suggestion AMG. But are you sure upsizing wont cause any problem to the bikes handling and suspension? Battery i think i will go ahead with Exide itself again. And the idling problem i remember only after you mentioned its a typical Bajaj problem! We had a Bajaj Saffire earlier and we faced this same problem after few years!
