hey nikki, what swing arm are u using? is that the stock or unicorn's?
Also i notices, u have bolted the shox on teh top-chassis mount...i have my doubts of its rigidity...have u also welded a clamp on top?

Swing arm is from Unicorn!! Reg mono mountings... In the top I have WELDED two 'boss-es' to complete a locked pivot joint!! So the top hook of mono will be sided by those two bosses and a long bolt provided acts as a pivot for free radial movement of shox... See here, the impact load thru shox acting on the frame will be as a "cushioned impact" due to the absorbtion capacity of shox!!! Tho thisz the most appropriate way of doing it... it is a very strenous job...coz the whole HANDLING issue lies on proper aligned mounting of mono!!! Incase if you are very much interested, I can send you an autocad sketch showing the work done!!! What say??!!!

cool, so u already made a CAD layout for this design eh..
but with a cushion effect, i hope u are not letting the mono sway in a position. i mean its must not move place. ideally for a cushion effect, a rubber spacer is provided to the shox lugs. This prevents any "thud" factor when the shox are bottoming.
post the CAD sketch here!
BTW, is that a 150cc? That engine needs a huge beef-up man, that fat tyre and extra mass would have reduced the "more go" part from your bike. I like more show and more go. Think on those lines too.

Default hi there....

fieroid, Yeah what you said bout shox mounting is correct!! But on the mounting there won't be a lateral movement for the shox!! Arrangement is infact made in such a way that there is very very minimal lateral movement there!! When hanged on the top mounting, the shox will swing radially resulting perfect working of the whole system..

Tho disz a P150, the perfected tuning along with K&N and free flow made it a near blaster!!! The tyres are not extra wide too!! Guess this is a perfect combo for P150's!!!

Don't know whether I'll be able to load autocad files here!! Anyways.. will try doing it!!

cheers!!! & thanks for your inputs!!!

Cool reply dude

I never knew "I think a yezdi's alloys n trye should do fine for ur bike." yezdi made alloys.

"
2. Replacing the rear suspension system with that of a Unicorn (Mono shock)
I agree Uni has the best monoshock. If ur doing it, then also try fitting in a P180's swingarm for better stablility of ur bike. I have seen some cosmetic modded pulsars converted to a r-1 n ......., As ur spending to changing to monoshock u may as well change the swingarm too."

Thats the best one.
I thought to convert to a monoshock you had to replace the Swingarm itself..

, Well u r putting a smmler alloys for looks i suppose !!!, but one thign dude, try NOT fitting fatter n wider tyre caz ur engine will cry later n laos u lose quiet a lot of top end. I think a yezdi's alloys n trye should do fine for ur bike.

3. Modifying the exhaust pipe to enhanse looks.
Vrommmmmmm , VROOOOOOmmmmmmMM, , louder the noise the more u rev, i think u should go in for a performance exhaust dude, ie., Tectrac or proton's..., if ur putting a local exhaust surely ur screwing ur bike within 2 months or so. For looks, u may as well powercoat the exhaust completely black.

4. Replacing the stock air filter with K&N filter.
K&N Air filter RC1060 will suit ur bike. Change ur jets to P180's jets to get maximum performance, if u aint jetting ur bike will run lean. 2 to 5% increase in intial u will get.

5. Would like to install anti-theft alarm system with remote start option,
Ha ha , my friends has one fitted to his p150dtsi 2.1, Dunno the name though fro Rs 800. Its good, anybody sitting or shaking the bike puts up the alarm, but v have more fun that that, Scaring the ppl away , Anybody sits on the bike, v make the bike start when v r bout 100 metres away form it, u shuld only see the look on ppl faces, they kinda get "what the" , he he.
Its good for fun n security, Only irrating thing is, left indicator is on it says " turning left" in a female voice .

Anywayz, i think ive answered most of ur stuff, Anythign else?
