I guess the problem would be with the Rectifier. And it is not charging the battery properly. My 2 cents. One of my friends had the same problem and the problem was rooted out to the Rectifier.


@jeeva: Cool Bike there buddy. What is the rubber thing at the end of the muffler?

I never thought this way, Brilliant. I will do the same from now on.

Thanks buddy.
Yeah, it prevents the tail from rusting and supposedly adds a little more to the thump.
Its actually the goold old Yezdi's silencer rubber connector: the one which is put on the spot where the silencer bend joins the muffler/end pipe, to prevent exhaust leaking.

I did not think of the rectifier as being the problem till now. I will probably get it checked and see if it helps though what is surprising is that the battery shows constant charge. I will get it checked nonetheless. Thanks ram.west

Good to see a lot of machismos here.
It is quite difficult to spot one in my hometown though. Interesting to note that, not many mods are done in the machismo.

here is a recent pic of my machismo - 2006 model. Done 26k of pure bulletting fun. My daily ride

Hi Ashok, unfortunately the pictures you uploaded aren't showing up. Reason : The file names (of pictures) are way too long. Could you suitably name the pictures and upload again? Thanks

Your bike looks fantastic, but why only 4600 kms in 2 yrs?

Hi Bullet fans: here is mine: before and after. It is a 1991 Enfield Bullet 350. Early this year, I had it 'Thunderbird-ized'. The Electra tank has been taken out for long-term storage. I asked my mech to somehow retain the amp meter, and he did so. I've always wanted this look, as opposed to the classic look: I guess it is a matter of taste. Sorry, these are the only pictures I have. The alloy wheels are ugly, I but the main reason they are on is because they do not rust. The bike's total mileage so far is 21,000km: I've owned it since new, but have been away from home for a long time. My parents refer to it as My White Elephant, or sometimes as Airawat.

GTO, thanks for pointing out.
Was wondering why it never came up --- uploading the pics again here.

This thread is a marvel. I cant stop browsing thru the pics over and over.
