Default Karizma mods suggestions

After driving around in a 5.6 Litre 8 cylinder 340 HP car in the US, I am riding around on a Karizma in Delhi these days (hopefully short stay). Will someone here please advice on where I can go (in delhi) to get a cigarette lighter socket installed on my bike - for GPS and Cell phone charging etc? Any and all suggestions welcome, including suggestions on week end trips out of Delhi- Neemrana was a possibility..

Muchos Gracias
jay

Thats cool Yogesh. Thankks for the response. After posting that plea, I got hold of a guy in Khan market who will do it for me. I am planning to put in an "embedded" one.

Planning to get some sort of mount for my WIndows CE Hand Held device working off a bluetooth GPS unit to help me keep to the staright and narrow.

Who says, you loose reliability with mods? Again it depends on what exactly u doing. Not group B specs for sure. Well if a stock bike itself is thrashed day in a day out, it will wear faster than a well maintained and well ridden modified engine.

Again, FYI it returns 32kmpl in city and 40kmpl on highway stints with casual ripping. Under hard insane riding, it returns 21-23kmpl. We are talking about a dynoed 21+ bhp at the crank engine. The bike runs on stock sprokets to this day.

What will comprise Stage 1 mods on a stock Karizma?

A little more details will be wonderful . I have a 2006 zma which has done 20k kms as of now. I was looking for details about the stage1 mods for a karizma's performance.

I was reading on the net and found that Hondas CRF 230F is the donner for the karizma's heart. It produces somewhere around 18.5bhp as compared to 17bhp of a stock Karizma so wanted to do some stuffs that can give me that 1.5 bhp more

Details will be wonderful as I done have much knowledge of the inside of a bikes parts.

Remove the head and reduce the surface facing the head gasket by 0.7 mm,in all probability u will have 18.5 bhp.

U can do a few basic things yourself.
The most simple mod will be, just remove the base gasket, i.e your cylinder block gasket and just apply a coat of three-bond paste. You will effectively get 20psi more compression. Good for a decent 1 bhp bump atleast

So with a single coat i can get a 20psi increase in compression? thats wonderful. So are you saying to apply the coat both for the base & head gasket? or just the head gasket (the gasket that seals the bore & cylinder head?
Further, where can I find this 3-bond paste? Will it be reliable? I donít have the tools to open the head so can any mech do the job?

no reverse effect. Only effect is improved performance
Threebond is a rubber based gasket paste. It will seal as much as a paper gasket if applied evenly.
