Default pulsar150 dtsi ug3 problem

hey guys! i have bought a new pulsar 150dtsi ug3. just completed my 100kms running.this is my first ever bike, the last i own is bajaj chetak. i wanna clarify some problem
1. tke kick is very hard. i am not able to kick-start my bike.
2. when i am on 3rd gear and at 35kph the engine sounds like an enfield
i.e. dug... dug... dug... tipe of firing
3. to return from 1st to neutral is a problem.

just try kick starting it everyday.it just needs practice and will eventually losen out too...if you notice when your engine is hot it will be easier to kickstart it.it just requires some practice but while kicking remmeber not to accelerate.

thats cause at that speed in that gear you must be accelerating full so theres a slight strain on the engine.try shifting down to second and accelerating quickly you will not notice this. or alternately be at a higher speed and try this in 3rd itself.also dont only look at speed also see your rpm.its its below 3.5 - 4 you may come across this but above that will be perfect.

finding neutral may be a problem for a few people who are not used to the 1 down all up config so that too will just need a little getting used to.just move the bike front and bike while tryin it will slot into neutral easier.

Switching from two stroke, direct drive to 4 stroke chain drive requires some change in acceleration technique. Your third gear knocking problem is (as revtech said) due to opening the throttle too much at too low an RPM. The Chetak would have simply stalled, 4 strokers are more forgiving.
Finding neutral in Bajaj's is a little difficult and the problem will stay with you.My Pulsar Classic 180 was a real pain sometimes.
Hey Sujit007, I have fond memories of trying to find neutral on my 150Bajaj scooter with both hands----so, the Bajaj legacy continues.

1)use self start
2)If it is knocking,can't help.typical bajaj trademark.
3)If you are new to 1 down/4 up pattern,you need to get used to it.

Am actually missing the new gear pattern. Luved that.
My Classic 150 came with the all-down pattern which is kinda boring.

Just a thought, the new alloys with the Classic looks... Stunning !!
