kzhma's chain (yah its an import and a DID one) costs 3k or so
Dont scare him... he he...

Hopefull nothing will go wrong with anything...

In the end, go with what you like....the differences are so small, it wont matter.

Thing is, after you have bought the bike, you should feel pleased. You shouldnt feel like "DAMN !! I should have bought the other one"

cbz extreme looks better in flesh than in the pics.The rear treatment looks nice. With the uni engine, i wud pick this over the pulsar. I must say that the engine sounds a bit on the harsher side.

Pulsar is too common on the roads and you would be lost in the crowd for sure.

Have ridden the new CBZ, the ergonomics of the gear lever and brake lever slightly feels odd. Am used to the Uni and the Uni feels relaxed or maybe it takes a bit of getting used to

Yes...

Its an all new 1 down 4 up...

Between... IMHO, pulsar alloys are better than ZMA alloys... HAve read many complaints of ZMA alloys in another biking community... and they are also priced more....

(Not comparing the bikes in this post... Just my opinion on the alloys)

The cbz extreme is more stable at high sppeds than the pulsar.Unleess you go at really fast speeds like 100 kmhr or more regularly the pulsar 150 ug3 will suffice your neds otherwise If you stll consider the cbz better pool in rs 1000 more to get 180

The weights that are put, when you go for alignment and balancing stuff.

If you are looking at good pulling power and a stress free ride day in and day out opt for the extreme. I own a 2000 (Feb) CBZ and I have loved riding every inch on it.
CBZ is a bike for the enthusiast, it will last long enough for you to get bored of it (but you never will) and its still the best best for those modifications.
As for the speedos, personally speaking I think the analog dials have more charm then the digital display. Do remember that in a few years most of the bikes will be digital and you can atleast tell your nephews/kids/grandkids that you drove a bike which had the dials in analog.
I am so much in love with my bike than despite me not being able to ride it now I just cant get myself to sell it.
CBZ has something running for it which a Pulsar never will have(dont get me wrong, the Pulsar is a good bike as well).

I own a Pulsar150 and would strongly recommend you to go for the Xtreme. Dont get lured by the Digital speedometer. The fascination fades off real quick as there is no functional upgrade from the last version, except ofcourse more accurate speed reading (which they should have fixed long time back). Also tripmeter reading is too small to read while riding and the Tachometer readings are very widely spaced making it difficult to precisely gauge the RPM.
Even though Pulsar is the largest selling 150cc bike, it need not be the best

I think you have forgtten the increased engine capacity and hence increased performance. Plus there are a lot of other upgrades too.
