Correct jeeva! Rectifier, he fitted one more to original setup however after that I experienced some break down like, ignition coil wire short and etc and somewhere in my mind I thought the new wiring is the cause and I removed it :P

But the main point is how should I improve the horn quality, fitting the new pair with cut-out is the only solution?

Thanks,
Vishal

guys!! i have this issue with my TBTS.. whenever i start my bike in the mornings, as i start giving throttle, it skips a few beats.. this keeps occurring each time im below 1500 rpm and try to speed up.. now the service centre tells me this is normal and that all the UCE bikes have this during cold starts..
as much as i love my bike, i dont know her well enough from the inside... so is this true with the UCE bikes? if not, what do you think could be the problem?
the bike is over 3 months old and has about 4000kms on it..
Thanks in advance..

Cold starts are difficult for me too and I end up using the choke almost all the time for initial start-up. But once it is warm enough it settles down in a regular rhythm. If it doesn't skip a beat later when the engine is warm then you are good.

Lately the rear wheel of my TBTS feels like its going to one side (a feeling of skidding) when i apply brake or when i try to turn. The mechanic says its because of the inferior rear wheel bush quality provided by the RE. anyone else can confirm that?
cheers!!

Some check points:
1. Check the air pressure (30psi is good enough)
2. Check the swing arm bush and the nuts.
3. Check the wheel bearings and get the wheel "trued".

Default Good Battery for Std.

All,
After sacrificing two bullet's paint on chasis and chain cover. I tried dry battery from UPS. It worked fine for almost 1.6 yrs in one bike and still going strong in second bull. Now my question is should i go for dry battery again or go for Amaron Maintenance Free Battery.
I inquired with pune dealer but he is saying that i will have to go for 9 Amp one for warranty coverage, Amaron do not provide warranty for Bullet on their 5 Amp battery. And i need 5 Amp for my Std Bulls.
can you guys please suggest good option.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Shubhendra Singh

Why cant we fit a 9Amp on the standard. I myself want to get hold of the 14amp that used to come some time back. Currently they are not available.

Just retrofit the battery box and get a 9Amp. I have a STD 500 and getting a STD 350 sometime this month. I am sure i will retrofit a 9amp in the 350.

Hi,

Why 9 amp sir?

I am installing new battery 5 amp today, you will need 9 amp if you are fitting electric starter otherwise 5 amp is good enough for STD 350.

Also for 9 amp you will need change battery box and wiring as well because the stock wiring on STD 350 is not good for 9 amp battery.

Thanks,
Vishal

Looks like your dealer is pulling a fast one. Challenge him.

Thanks.
I am a Bulleteer for the past 12 years and had been to many (famous) mechanics in and around Ernakulam. Among all of them I finally selected Mr Arun, who has his garage at his home at Rice Research Road, Chalikkavattom near Vytilla as my "Bullet Doctor". He has around 200 Bullets under his supervision in kerala.
I found in many mechanics the attitude is that the customer should come back to him the very next time. SO they complete repair works in such a manner so that you finally become a regular visitor of his Workshop!!
After having so much of bad experiences with many "Asaans"(Masters) I found this chap (Arun) genuine and very skilled.

All the best and wishing a Nice Bullet ownership experience...

Friends,

I am using RE STD 350 for one and half year, from last month or so I am facing rear wheel slipping issue, when I take turn I feel like bike will skid anytime and I loose confidence.

Is anyone facing same issue? I am thinking of moving to big tire however that will hamper the FE.

I checked with my mechanic but you know how are the bullet mechanics.

Thanks,
Vishal

Within a year of purchase, the AMCO batteries on my bullet are almost dead. Luckily it is not giving me any starting problem, when at night with the headlights on the horn dies. Sometimes i also cant hear the horn tone. Instead of getting a replacement of another AMCO i decided i will go for a new Amaron batteries.

I enquired with the dealer here in Bangalore and 5 amp battery(for bullet)comes with 5 years warranty. I suggest you to check with other dealer about the warranty.

I fail to understand the logic behind not giving warranty for bullets. Or atleast i cant think of any reason.

Hey, the problem might be with alignment of the rear wheel. Check for any dents/bend in the wheel. Its mainly because of this you feel like bike is going out of controls when turning.
If there is a bend in the wheel you can get it removed easily. For small bends tuning the spokes will suffice.
