to get it up in 3rd / 2nd you have to be seated more to the rear of seat and i guess its easier for me since my rear wheel is an eliminator one.

Those guys are from a group called 'MOTOTYCOON'. Groups of dare devils... The place in that video is West Delhi.
You can see the detailed description about that performance in the xbhp forum
Castrol xBhp

Smile I tried same on my Bullet 500 CC

I tried the same on my 500cc Bullet like shifting down to the 1st gear at 55 kmph and what I got was one tyre ride for about 4 seconds as I could not balance it for more. You ought to be very controlled for your cg to be shifted on the extreme last point of your seat in order to do the similar act. It is fun to watch but very risky and danger for the bike. I got the chainset loosened after that.....

Default hmmm

yeah i do understand
BTW I am a great BULL lover. I owned it for three years, drove it for just 9000 kms and then disposed it off as I was about to leave for Japan. Now I am back and i miss it alot. The same thing happenned with me 8 years back, then i used to have a Jawa yezdi 250 cc deluxe model sipping petrol @evry 10~12 kms per litre. I sold that off also and today I really miss that one. I really wish I had a snap of that bike with me today. I got that modified from the Bullet shoppe in Karol bagh with the export style Petrol tank and harley style rear tail lights.
if today someone asks me I would love to own my Bullet 500 and my Yezdi 250 once again. both of them had some similarities like great thrust even on the 2nd gear, it just never used to end anywhere... then the thump... it was awesome... I was the king on road... I never drove my bikes for more than 30~40 kmph in the city because i always feel that other people should be given the chance and oppurtunity to acknowledge your love, your sound and your looks when she is drivven.. The same way I am today very passionate about my Indica V2 DLS and my New Esteem Lxi....

mendi bro please be careful while doing this bcoz if bull and yours being the massive 500 gets out of controll then it may be preety serious.
as far as these bikes are concerned i think thers some kind of tunning done wiyh the engines.during the days of terrorism the bullet was banned in punjab.
if you shave of the head little bit and play with the valves then this lazy engines roar!!!!!
this is what i have heard may be you guys will correct me if i am wrong.

Where does Mendi in his post imply that he's going to do that?

How do you play with the valves? Which game... lolz?

hey sankar even I have heard that too. To extract more travel and thrust from the cylinders, you may cut off or grind some face of the valves but this inevitabley decreases the FE on the others hand...
