Helmet>a MPA half face,gels well with cruisers.
Motorcycle Helmets - Open Face
for looks,keep it stock!
Performance upgrades?If you looking for adding filters,upjet,expirements with sprockets,performance tuned exhaust,etc,all these will help in marginal gains.

@zulfikar,difference between the the two filters is K&N is less restrictive compared to uni.

Try laying ur hands on a uni filter instead.
uni is better for 2 strokes right?

and there's one called HP( would cost 600/700 @JC road)

and you would have to cut the airbox and do something about the battery box if Elimi's air box setup is like the Avenger's

Red face

i am giving the bike at Bajaj Service station,
had gone on 9th to givr thr bike they gave me a waiting list and told to come back on monday 15th...
have to wait 6 days to giv the bike for paid servicing...

that was strange..
the castrol guys were not at all intrested in taking the bike when i called them...
thay kept on giving me other Service station number saying talk to them...
sooo castrol bike point is out of question...
it they treat me like this before taking the bike i dont know what they will doo to the bike,...

Uni can be used for both 2 stroke & 4 stroke. Metal back K&N won't work well in twostrokes, that's why i suggested UNI for 2 strokes JK.

Go for UNI or K&N, i wouldn't recommend HP, the filtration area is quite small, i'm using one now. K&N would last longer than a UNI, foam filter in my opinon is not long lasting.

zulfi u sold ur RX to buy an eliminator ????!!!! do u have a good city commute ? i still dont think u should have sold ur RX . just like RD's are becoming the craze today ... and mint RD's were selling for less than 10K in the 90's ..i predict that apna RX series will go the same way... that is if the indian biking scene remains the same ...lol im being too optimistic for the RX but i think u should have kept it . anyway with regards to doin up ur eliminator i think u should download some pics of the original eliminator sold abroad by kawa . its somewhat similar to the Vmax in terms of looks . there is this guy called venugopal who goes by the name of enginehacker online . he;s built a V twin fiero . maybe he'll build u a V twin eliminator and then ull have more go and if u do the show well ull have that as well and u will be faster than ur cheaper cousins the avenger and then u can feel like god . lol .

Just as long yes, but not as long as a K&N. The foam starts disintegrating faster compared to the cotton sandwiched wire mesh construction of k&N. And also it starts to detach itself from the rubber base if not cleaned gently. Uni filters well with it's two layers of foam, but K&N flows more and filters just as good, but not better. I had a UNI on my RX135 5 Speed. Bought it when they were selling it for 900 bucks. In case of uni you can take out the red layer for more flow, that's an advantage.
