Good that they responded at least.

Now coming to the root cause that was found by Baja ASC - A Stone found stuck!

Won't this stone have a damage caused to the plate and the pads as well?

What all parts have been changed?

What's their take on it?

Yes, they have cooked up the root cause for sure. They did not change any parts. Just did below:

- cleaned up rear and front disc
- loosened up the foot brake lever play.

Brakes operating normal as of now and I don't see any visible damage
on the rotor. Will observe it for next few days and make a visit to SC over weekend.

thanks!

One question,

Why did they have to loosen up the brake play? Did you tell it specifically?

I guess it is done to save the brakes. If the rider rests his foot on it, there should be no braking due to it continuous pressure on the pedal eventually causing 'brake fade'.

Default Re: Pulsar 200NS - Rear wheel stuck - Disc Brake

I had the same problem with my pulsar 200. The front brake used to get jammed after maybe 2km of riding, progressively. and suddenly I'm doing unintentional burnouts at a traffci signal. The solution was simple. Bleeding the brake lines. My brake oil was refilled recently then and apparently the friendly neighbourhood pulsar mechanic did not do a good job at it, there was air in it. As we know, air expands with heat and every input of the Brake used to heat up the air, and jam the brakes, hence the progressive feel of the Brake locking up. I know, i was surprised that a small miniscule bubble could cause such chaos, but after Bleeding the brake lines and checking for air, everything was back to normal. No need for replacement and tearing up the rear brake assembly, just check the brake lines.

Yes Anurag, I had specifically told them about it since it was hard and whenever I stepped on the brake pedal it used to shudder a bit.

Thanks

  4. Now with the caliper off when you rotate the wheel if its rotating freely just eyeball the brake rotor and check if its waving in and out? If yes then the problem is due to a warped rotor.
  5. If wheel is rotating freely with caliper removed and there is no waviness of the rotor then issue might is with the caliper. The caliper piston may not be freely moving and thus not releasing pressure on the rotor.
  6. If the rotor is steady and wheel is still tight with caliper off then check for excessive chain tension. If found too tight then loosen the chain according to the manual.
  7. With caliper removed, with chain tension under spec and if the wheel is still tight then check wheel bearings and then the gearbox (but chances are low on a new bike for these to go bad).
PS: In the video it looks like the bike's got a warped rotor.
For your kind information pulsar 200 NS has no main stand.
Bro you better take to Bajaj Auto Service Station and get the Brake system replaced.

The main stand is available as an accessory, at least that's what the dealer said - and my memory may be rusty, but I have seen 200NS with main stand before.
