Pulsar alloys are meant for 17" tyres. Get a proper 18" alloys for your bike. It will look neater and wont have any problems later.

If you want your back to look raised, adjust your shocks or fix ribgs below the shock mounting. Beware, this may cause handling issues.

Hey chiragh, why don't you go in for the karizma's alloys? It would be a perfect fit, and would look much better as well; and since they are 18" alloys, you can fit your existing tyres (which means you're saving around 3G's in tyre costs alone), and the gearing won't be altered.

By 15", I'm guessing you have gone in for the Eliminator/Avenger's tyre/rim combo. The previous combo gave your bike a total dia (or wheel height) of 63.72 cms (100/90 tyres on 18" rims). The rolling circumference was 200.18 cms. Now, the bike runs on 130/70 tyre, R15 wheel at the rear. The wheel height (Overall Diameter) has been reduced to 56.3 cms. The rolling circumference has been reduced to 176.87 cms.

The above calculations show that the gearing of the bike has been reduced. Hence, your bike should give you faster acceleration, but at the cost of top end; also, the F.E is going to decrease, since the wheel will rotate at lesser r.p.m's at the same engine r.p.m's than it used to. Although all this is theoretic, in the real world, the tyre's traction/grip is going to take away the advantage in terms of acceleration; you're not only slower, but you're getting lesser fuel efficiency as well.

In theory, this could have been overcome by reducing the number of teeth in the rear sprocket, but the CBZ doesn't have enough torque to pull off reductions of more than 2 teeth; and that's on 18" rims. Any more reduction, and the top end will be affected even more.

chiragh, be satisfied with the extra grip that you're getting. If you're determined for getting extra performance, do this; Get a K&N, add a freeflow exhaust, disconnect the TPFC, re-jet the main jet to 115 size, adjust the float, tune the carb, and reduce the rear sprocket teeth to 40. And if THIS doesn't work, NOTHING else will.
