hey techno, another thing i got to ask u, u have any idea what's the top speed for an ordinary pulsar 180, not dtsi. In the manual its written 107km/hr.. Is that true..i think its true, eventhough i made it till 110(that must be speedo error)...Mine is a 2003 june model.. I think the first versions of 180 was faster but mileage suffered for it!!..

The DTSi models(not the latest lots but the ones launched in 2003 Oct) are both faster(tho only marginally) & more economical.. the older pulsar 180 should go upto arnd 120 speedo indicated( some go even more depending on the amnt of error )

in addition to the k&n u can play around with your gearing and hence your pick up and the top speeds.
to make your pulsar 180 go to 140+kph read this

Is it true that on the long run, the freeflow will hamper your bikes performance?!!

am running on slightly bigger jets which came wid classic Pulsar 180, size is 115 (stock for 180 DTSi was 112.5)
Thats good news for me then as I have the classic Pulsar. So that means a K&N would work just fine without any jet change!

There is no reason why a properly designed freeflow would cause any harm to your bike, short term or long.

However, the stuff being sold at every corner bike store here would probably do more harm than good. But that's the fault of the rider for not knowing any better, and the mechanic (if you can call them that) for knowing even less.

Get it done properly and you should have increased power throughout the revband. However that where the proper design comes into play. Some systems would reduce your midrange and increase your top end, others may do the opposite, and still others may increase or even decrease both.

@kphilip man the classic has some high speed handling issues coz it had tubular swingarm as against the now standard box Swingarm whihc helps in better stability at top speeds.. so stability at high speed will still be the same for u.

@rtech No man u'll have to upsize the jets, c i increased the stock fuel flow by increasing the jet size to 115 while 115 is stock for u, so if u increase the air flow by putting a K&N, u'll definetly have to put a suitable jet.


Freeflow will hamper the the engine if the fuel flow is not matching to the amnt of air flowing in.. if they are adjusted properly then no problemo

Tho it may sound very easy to put a bigger jet, to get the best tuning u need an expert.. even mine is not tuned properly i have simply puta bigger jet & iam sure aftre getting it tuned properly froma good mech the change in perf will be noticeable

Techno, if I remember, you upgraded your 150 to a non dtsi 180. After adding the filter, you upsized your jets to 115, same as the Classic.

Now, seeing that I already have the 115, simply adding the filter and tinkering with the mixture screw should steady things out. Only way to tell is by trial and error though! First, I gotto check my timings with the stock setup.
