Default The Royal Enfield Mechanics Thread: All mechanics requirements and queries here.

Hi all,

I am new to this community. I had been using a Royal Enfield before 6 years. After coming to Bangalore I used CBZ, Pulsar, RX 100 and now again ended up purchasing with a brand new Machismo last March. As all bulleteers know, New Mach is having an AVL engine. Itís a bit noisy comparing to conventional cast iron engines, But Gives Good Pick up (0 Ė 60 in 8 secs) and Mileage. I heard that we can reduce this noise for an extent with the help of a good Bullet Mech. Is there is any one who can suggest me a good Mech in Bangalore? (Should be Good with Thunder Bird also, Mach and Thunder is having the same engine)

Hey dude.

There is an enfield showroom on CMH road. Near that showroom there is an enfield garage run by Anand. The showroom folk refered me to him. Phenomenal fellow, very friendly and knows each customer by name and knows the vehicle in and out. I met him to purchase a second hand which he got me for a phenomenal rate. I had an accident on the bike and the insurance papers werent in order; he actually helped me find a loophole and i got the insurance claim.

He is very reputed in the Enfield owners circle. If yuo want his exact location you'll have to ask the showroom fellas on CMH road. Its right next to them but inside a lane so not easily spottable.

My personal recommendation to deal with this guy.

Congrats on your Machismo. I love bullets, but the only thing that scares me is the problems that accompany them . I have a bullet in my mind for my next purchase, but will have to convince my wife about my idea.

Well, as the saying goes, "If it aint broken, why fix it?". This is true in bullet's case because if you try to fix something, something else gives up. My advice is, unless you really need to fix something in a bullet, dont do it.

All said and done, it is a wonderful bike to have.

I will check with some of my colleagues who own bullets and will let you know the best bullet mechanic at Bangalore. Stay tuned....

There is a bullet service station near to 1st block HRBR layout, Kalyana nagar banaswadi. I have seen lots of bullets being serviced.. Try that also

I don't think Joe services bullets (assuming you're talking about joe near cantonment station). And ronchinoy certainly doesn't "service" any bikes. Period. And I don't think he's worked on bullets to date.

[SIZE=2]You must try Anand as someone else earlier said. He is one of the best there is for servicing enfields. He used to own an enfield dealer ship earlier( dont think he does now). Take the 2nd left after the shantisagar hotel(when coming from Chinmaya mission towards ulsoor) and you can find his workshop.[/SIZE]

Hi, Anand on CMH Road is the best...My ThunderBird is being maintained by him since past 3 1/2 years...Cost wise, he is moderate...but all that matters is the Work..and he is best on Enfields...

best would be to take it to the authorized service center, I recently bought a 1984 bullet and my mechanic also did the same to me, instead of risking it again, i went the safer route and took it to the authorized service center, now it works pretty well !
