Hi KPhilip,

yes i am able to do 125 on speedo. Try to do gearshifts at higher rpms of around 9k in each gear then check your top speed, the classic's top speed is 120 as per OD.

Again i 'll correct one of my previous comment, if the jets are kept stock, you will get better mileage under normal conditions.

Pirelli will reduce your bike's top speed. What tyre are you running now. I am using Dunlop Geocruiser on my P180.

Man you will have to make the mixture slightly rich to gain at top end.

You can also get the new gas shocks fitted on your bike because a few freinds of mine have done & they seem to be very happy with this mod. Even I am planing to do the same sometime soon.

Will let you know the feasibility & performance change in fitting the new exhaustec silencer.

As per what i have gathered about the new Exhaustec silencer, it should improve city riding without affecting highway riding. Am waiting for feedback froma dealer who has done this change in a few bikes.

hi kphillip,
i had the pulsar 180 swb and i currently own the 180 dts-i (non exhaust-tec)
and i would like to tell you, i have achieved a top speed of 122 on my old 180 and have managed 129 on the dts-i, both speedo reads. also, both were doing 8500 and 9200 rpm on the tacho respectively. i've driven the new exhaust-tec 180, and here are my views;
the new 180 feels even more planted than the older 180. the top end is significantly less, i managed to max 115 on a 800 km run-in bike. i did 120 on the old one once with the same run-in kms (only once-after that i waited till 2550 kms before ripping again) also, the bottom end torque has increased nicely, the bike pulling cleanly from 2nd gear from still.
and vinsanity, this is for you:
upon enquiry, i found that fitting the exhaus-tec on the older bikes will actually increase perfomance, but marginally. a friend of mine fitted it in his old 180, and his bike's improvements are as follows:fuel efficiency-39 as compared to 37.5-38. top speed-123 as compared to 119 (both on the speedo).
hope this helps. ciao

Cool dudes....

i rode a pulsar 180 dtsi in goa.......
for about a week or two.......
and trust me the bike was completely stock.....
i made her touch 135-140 on the goa roads.....
but yes to tell u the truth if u dun't have some1 behind u.....
and if u aint an experinced rider then definately u in for a major surprise...
the handling of the bike at lower speeds is ok.....
but with excessive weight being in the center of the bike causes strain....
when riding long distances...........
cheers....
take care......

hi psycholyn,
pray tell me, how much do you weigh? coz unless and until you weigh on the better half of 50 kgs, i don't see that kind of speeds happening (which is why you must be experiencing those 'stability & handling problems' ). and besides, the air density in goa region is lesser than that of mumbai (trust me, i've been to goa), which, in turn, again, is lesser than that in kerala. and no questions there, as i am originally from kerala, and pay a visit annually.
why is the air density important you ask? well, i go to kerala mostly on my steeds, which used to be a tata sierra, and currently, a safari. both have been to my native place.
and as you know, goa comes en' route, and here's what i experienced:
the performance figures of my baby dropped mysteriously in goa ( i could achieve speeds of 148-150 kmph-only!!), as compared to kerala and mumbai (where i've topped 160+). this happened due to the thin air. likewise for my sierra, which topped at about 125-140 in mumbai & kerala & 110-115 in goa.
and hey, maybe 140 can be done in a 180 dts-i. but unless i get into an (impossible) weight loss programme, i don't see that happenin' with my 92 kg, 'healthy' frame-on my bike, that is.....he he he......
ciao.

If you are ready to play around with the head/cam/ignition then I'd suggest you machine the head for a higher compression ratio, get a new camshaft and get it reprofiled from a good car tuner for high rpm power and get a programmable ignition system to rework the whole ignition timing. All these mods will give you some real increase in power.

@kphilip: yeah dude evn i find it hard to rev beyond 9.5k rpm in 5th & even this takes some time to come. The top ebd surely comes a buit slower than on stock filter, Iam planning to play around with the carb for that. Will let you know the results

what u said more than 130kmph on the new p180....u must be kidding......there is a reason behind the new pulsar showing more figures...bajaj has not calibrated the speedo accurately to match the new 17" alloys and hence its read is kinda for a 17"1/2 inch wheels...hence if the old pulsar shows 100kmph the new one will show 105kmph...so if u guyz claim the old p180 did 125 then the new one will show def more than 130kmph..........the pulsars are anyways known for their wrong speedo reads but wid the new wheels its even more!!try and compare if possible and this will be evident!
