Get hands on RXZ(the last lot from Escorts) with 5 speed and factory disc setup and see the difference may be you will change your mind completly about the defination of stability and braking at high speeds with perfomance.
BTW seen all these 4 strokes blown by a tiny RX100 forget RXZ.

BTW your signature says something else .
You are wrong.... Not 2-3, we can gain close to 10 bhp in a Fiero, when compared to the stock without modifying HEAVILY!

@men in jean, you may not like a 2st, thats ok, because its a personnel choice, but the reason you have given is a joke. do you mean to say 2st bikes does not have any stability or braking power?


Now, if you want to increase the power of your pulsar, the best mod you can do is loose weight on yourself and on the bike.

Do you think our regular road side mech/grease monkey has the knowledge to port the engine head? they just makes every hole larger.

To add to that you want to fix a k&n, and worse still, Not wanting to up-jet? go ahead, and this will give more business to your mech as you will be re-building your engine very soon.

its not worth doing any mods to a bike like pulsar150. just keep it stock, and maintain it very very well. use the best petrol that you can get, change oil at regular intervals.

This way you can enjoy riding a decent bike. The day you start modding, you can kiss the reliability of your bike good bye. and become a regular at your mech's place.

now, just to make your self happy, you can use k&n sticker and possibly another one suggesting you have a turbo on your bike

you dont need to agree to all I have suggested, but this modding thing is a phase in every enthusiast's life. you may outgrow it, and after that all you will want is a nice reliable bike.

if you still want to mod it, go ahead, but keep another bike if you want a commuter.

Wise words, renamo.

Dude, instead of this head porting lark, spend 10k and get yourself a nice 2 stroker for the weekend fun. There are only a few mechanics who have the expertise to do anything beyond a simple intake-and-exhaust job on any 4-stroke bike. There is no point.

If you dont like 2-strokers, then better to stop with basic mods and sprocketing......

Drag where as usual where maximum teens drags in Bangalore ,
sorry sir i cant why not come to Chennai or Kari in proper race track?
BTW i rides the big daddy of all indian bikes need not mention which one .Very soon ill put the saga of its rebuilt.
I think so you are talking about Fiero done by Venu, FYI its not 150 its 200 cc, ever saw a RXG pumping out 39 BHP just at 150 cc?
This thread was about modifying Pulsar now its getting dragged to 2 stroke Vs 4 stroke.

Mr. Venu has done a V-twin project on fiero and made a 300cc (The first v-twin in India) and it smokes a Comet (with 28 bhp it is called as the first true sports bike in Inda) easily. And now coming to the point. He is now working on a 200cc (bored out) fiero with a supercharger; which is way faster than his v-twin.

Drop in to venu's place (he already has a thread here, "Supercharged Fiero") any time and see it to believe it!

My point was I have never seen an RX100 (read it "R X HUNDRED") with so much of power which can smoke a modded 4 Stroke!

Is it? Even my bike is also modified (200cc) by Venu and it smokes a Karizma easily!

I agree. Even a modded 135cc RXZ is very faster. So i can imagine a 150cc RXG!

Ending the stroke war here. Back to "modifying a Pulsar"!

Well i have seen many 4 strokes ripping apart RX100 and RX135.. I have done many.. It depends mostly on the drivers.. a stock RX cannot beat a stock Pulsar anyday.. so its no match..

The reason is said is I've seen many of my friends in RX and shogun making a U Turn wen trying to brake at speeds of around 100, which noramlly doesnt happen in the compartively heavy bikes(150cc's in our country)..

I really never came across a TURBO?? is there such thing for a bike?? what difference does it make?

What about a RX150 beating 600 cc SBK's on track?
You can beat a stock bike but theres no match between moded two strokes and 4 strokes.
BTW best of luck for your modification.

What the hell are you guys going on about.....2-stroke vs 4-stroke is no contest and its been asked and answered several times.....the man asked some technical questions about 4-stroke engines and that calls for some technical answers. Not bickering who's going to beat who.

Sonny boy, you're saying a supercharger or an extra cylinder is NOT modifying HEAVILY? Whatcha smokin'?!

You're talking about Anand's bike?

I'm sorry, but I've NEVER seen this in my life, and I've been to quite a few trackdays. This is a little bit of propaganda being spread. Give Dilip Roggers a 600 and an RX, and guess which he'll be faster on?

Sorry maga, but this is what happens when the faithfuls from somewhere land up here and start tom-tomming their stuff.

Guys, please stick to the topic. We know you are great, and your bikes doubly so. But this isn't about your bikes.

here is the list of simplest mods,

get a tectrac from Mr. Vivek in chennai itself! its a free flow exhaust!

get the jet size changed and get the crab tuned!

get a K&N for the bike, and if need be better brakes!

you will have reasonably good power in the hands! and forget the rest, dont expect too much out of the pulsar!

do remember to change the oil every 1000kms if you rip it hard!, and do use the 20w50 grade and not the 20w40!
