Hey, if you're just buying tyres and not actually riding the bike, can I buy it off you? I know what tyres to get and enjoy the bike

Get any of the tyres mentioned above man. A 1 inch increase in height from stock will have negligeble impact on your gearing or mileage.

One inch increase in height will also mean the seating position/angle will change! Don't want that!!!

And no... sorry to disappoint you guys, but me no lawyer...

Errr, well... posts get a tad long because I type very fast. They end up getting long before I begin to realise it.

As for tuning it's simple warm the bike, than turn the air screw clockwise to completely close it. than from there turn 1 and a half turn. start the bike since it switches off, than tinker with the idle screw to get the idle to 1200-1500 rpm. your done.
In shogun the 4 electrode spark plug gave a clean burn of the mixer, as the there are more possibility for a stronger spark due to more electrodes. I have found the bike gave a consistent millage/performance and setting of the plug did not need much adjustment. I had the bike modded [guesstimate was it produced 18 bhp by the TVS engineers].
NON cat con bikes had slightly better performance [not much] the bike revved much freely. but the sound was glorious. TVS did not do anything new just added a cat con to get the emission down.

Could you tell me which 4 electrode spark plug did you use? I assume it was MICO BOSCH. I don't know any other company that markets multi electrode plugs in India. I called up BOSCH India yesterday. The Brand Manager told me they don't have any multi electrode plugs for Shogun. The single electrode W5BC is the only plug they have for the Shogun.

So may I ask which one exacty you use/used?

I could not find Michelin's in Poona. Seems dealers who stock them had/have no stocks.

The spark plugs were not from Mico, they were [bosch] imports and I do not remember the model number.It's been really long time now. I sold my bike in 2001.

I just realised that this is off topic here. Moving the spark plug post to the appropriate thread -
