Hey Guys ,

You Could increase the height of the shocks, I Have done it in my pulsar, Because of the same problem, and this has rectified it.

Hey Guyz....

I am not able 2 figure out 1 thing , arent the gas shocks supposed to improve the suspensions thus the riding quality rather than dampenin it ?
If this is a problem in all the new pulsar then tat means bajaj didnot do much R&D on this n tats BAD !! Y didnt they try the mono suspension as in Unicorn ? Even the new Pulsar 250 has dual shocks ... mono would have looked far more better .

And Adarsh, increasing the height of the suspension, wont tat stiffen it ?

Unicorn is not without any problems. It's problem list includes poor electricals, bad suspension, high rear vibration, costly spare parts, problematic downshifts etc and the list goes on. So never blame blindly any bike.

Poor electricals? - Its got a better ignition system than the pulsar twins.
BAD Suspension? - Cmon, you've gotta be kidding

High rear vibrations - thats given. The rear fairing does vibrate more than usual

Costly spare parts - Define costly. Quality does come with a price.

Problematic downshifting? - When did you find it a problem to downshift?

List goes on and on and on...........? Bring 'em on.

So never blame blindly any bike - Practice what you preach buddy. Maybe then we might listen to you.

Iíve clocked a lot on cockroachís uni and have always liked the peppy feel of the uni(even more after I installed the k&N). The bike feels really built to last, so pls donít make lame comments on any bike. We all know how good our bikes are and anyday a Honda has better build quality. The uni does not have a faulty wiring, suspension is very good(I always keep telling dennis aka coackroach) and takes my kinda riding abuses really well. The best part is that the rear suspension does not bottom under hard terrain rides yet retaining good ride feel. The only let down is the rear panel being shaky, but thatís a minor design flaw..no bike is perfect and the uni is one of the best bike around. The chassis is really sweet and is truly built for a bigger engine!

"Well the new version of pulsar comes with a sari-guard on rear wheel. This fibre guard vibrates and touches tyre when bike passes thro a pot hole."
This was wat I was told by Service centre guy. Now some people here say the problem is in nitrox tech.
