Well the shock is installed exactly the same as yours but my brothers bike Pulsar 180 (not DTSI) came with 18" wheels stock. So he fitted 18" alloys and now the rear end touches.

Sir, When's your bike going to be done?
Just can't wait to lay my hands on it.
Seems like Bajaj will take cues from you for the next Pulsar.

Hey I have a question for you...how good are these compared to the stock tyres? are these tubeless? What's the approx cost of these? Thanks!

Default hi

gr8guzzler,
Good? Well.... Tho thisz a duplicate Michelin for sure, it performed exceptionally well during test rides.... excellent grip even in wet/gravel roads!!! Braking is far more superior also!!! However life of the tyre is yet to be xplored!!! Reg Prices, well...since these are imported from Thailand or so, we are left with no option other than paying the extra premium for that!!! It costed me a woooooping 3.6k!!!! Performance part is definitely better than any other tyre available in india!!!

I've installed it with tube inside...coz am adviced that the stock alloys are not good enough to hold the pressure!!! However you can install it as tubeless if you have a good quality alloy wheel!!!

cheers!!
