I haven't got the rubber washer for the fork legs, the suspension is bit on the stiffer side now, minus this problem everything is perfect and doing good. taking the bike to bike world jaynagar tommorow.

Appreciate the hard work put in. But once the front suspensions start getting softer it will incline forward leading to heavy fishtailing while braking. I suggest you get the fork height increasers and have them installed. The whole process will cost you around 350 rupees

Sad that my thread is not getting any responses :( Anyways, I just bought an autopal mazda HL, now what all do I need to buy and do to fit a 90/100 bulb? And is there a better brighter one than a Philips Rally?

Regarding the disk setup, i have zeroed onto the RTR. Now can someone please tell me if I need to buy the upper part of the fork, i.e. the steel part along with the bottom barrel (black part) or just the bottom part will be enough where I can use the RX's stock upper fork part? Now the estimate for the disk, pistons, caliper and bottom fork is coming to around 4k. Is that right?

And regarding the spark plugs, which is the best? MICO W5BC / NGK BP7HS / NGK G-Power BPR7HGP / NGK Iridium??? Its only for city riding at high revs.

You need a 100/90 kit along with the bulb ask me where visit Rddreams.com

Regarding the disk setup, i have zeroed onto the RTR.

Just go back 1 or 2 pages back you will get the info, 4k is if you pick up from the junk yard not the new one's, new one's cost >>10k.

And regarding the spark plugs, which is the best? MICO W5BC / NGK BP7HS / NGK G-Power BPR7HGP / NGK Iridium??? Its only for city riding at high revs.

For normal stock engine NGK BPR7HS is fine, if you port and add other goodies, your engine tend to run more hotter then use MICO W5BC this plug is much colder than the BPR7HS.

The 100/90 kit seems a little pricey. Cant I just do a coil rewind and put in a 90/100 bulb?

Yes I am going to port etc, so is MICO W5BC better than the NGK G-Power or Iridium?

Yes you can do it with coil rewinding but have to upgrade to an bigger rectifier (regulator) than the stock one, you can use W5BC iridium's are on the expensive side so better leave it away.

Strange thing is TVS recommends NGK BP8HS or Mico W5BC for Suzuki Shogun. So they must be equivalent. Now funny thing is NGK itself recommends BP7HS (hotter plug) for the Shogun!

I'd suggest you go for NGK of the right heat range only. If you cant find the colder BP8HS anywhere, you could get it from TVS... though I think they will sell it at a higher price.

Just go for the NGK.. It performs superbly and lasts 4-5 times more than a Mico plug at high revs. The Iridium is also good if you can afford shelling out close to 800 bucks.

Go for the BC1106, advantage over the 800 is that it has a non resettable ODO and there's a ROM chip which retains your settings and stats even if the battery goes down. In BC800 if battery goes down you've lost the settings and recorded stats. BC1106 will cost you Rs. 2361. BC800 would be much cheaper around 1500 i guess.
