Don't know about others but the rear axle shaft for 720 seems VERY cheap. I may be wrong but this doesn't seem to be the MRP of that particular part.

Ok it must be 15% then. Today I noticed that the rear wheel dead center do not have the stainless steel caps that the front wheels have. I think While changing axle this part was not replaced... then I have doubts if only front wheels have these caps. I can't remember. Can you confirm?

Thanks

Hello Bengaluru BHPians

I am now ready to change the suspension and switch to CFLs. Where in Bangalore North side (Banaswadi side) can I find a good mechanic who can do this?

I dont want to travel all the way to Koramangala or BTM.

The garage should also have a pneumatic drill as I need to fit an LH mirror. I am looking for someone to whom I can go to repeatedly for all the little incremental mods.

PS: How much should it cost for changing suspension? How much time will it take typically?

Thanks

Any mechanic should be able to do this. Doesn't require any specialized equipment. Infact, if you have tools & time you can do it yourself.

Depends, a MASS could charge anything between 800-1200 for this. A non-MASS could charge ~500-700 for this. Should take approx 1-2 hours at best

Hmm I thought we would need a vehicle lifting machine to make it easier. So we jack up one wheel at a time and do it?

I called up Aryan motors near Banaswadi and he quoted 2.5K and a whole days time!!

Thanks for the tip. I will head down to the local garage a few 100mtrs from my house and check.

A correction. The price I mentioned is for just one side. For both, front and rear, 2k could be ok

Default Crank Pulley for the G13BB vs G13B?

Hello

I really want to change the pulley on my Gypsy to a lightweight Alloy or T6061 AL one. Currently I use a heavy dual pulley with inner serpentine and outer A-Section for use with a Sanden 505 a/c compressor.

Where can I find one for this aging engine model in this age? I see some pulleys sold for the old suzuki swift which had a G13B engine. Would that be a drop in replacement for a Gypsy? a slight reduction in diameter by a few mm is ok actually preferred for the underdrive.

Any tips for where I could procure one?

Thanks
R

If i may ask, is it to gain some power?

Esteem if i remember has grooved single belt set up, whereas Gypsy the compressor is offset and uses dual belt system. So might not work.
