My bull seems to be running out of fuel more often. Normally 4 litres is enought for 4 to 5 days (I do around 25-30 kms per day). But in last week alone the Bull ran out of fuel twice. The fuel line is not leaking and no one can steal fuel from my bull cos I store it in a secure garage. What can be the problem? Help me out guys!!!

first do a proper servicing of your bullet.
  • carburetor cleaning & setting
  • CB points timing adjustment
  • spark plug gap adjustment
  • & check for the petrol adulteration (it can happen)
regards,
Nikhil

Default Exhaust Pipe Leakage!!

Hi all,
Sorry If I am cutting someone down, & sorry if this sounds like a silly question. I have a 1000 kilometer ridden electra UCE & in the desparation to get the bull affect of having an intense base to the note of the stroke, I swapped the stock set-up of the exhaust with an aftermarket goldstar silencer by Sans Inc. Violla, the note now is amazing with a depth that I wanted forever, however I have this following issue. When I took this piece of exhaust system to the mechanic, he politely declined & expressed his inability to be able to fix it due to the circumference of the exhaust being bigger than that of the bend pipe. As per him, there was going to be a sure leakage regardless of any workarounds. This was Khasim bullet garage on ORR close to the hebbal area in Bangalore. Since, it couldnt be done there, he fitted the stock set-up back in the place. With some hope & to get a second opinion when i took it to anwar bullet garage in byatrayanpura, he fitted the exhaust without any complaint. Note that this exhaust has been on for more than a few days now, today I heard some pooping sound off the exhaust intermittently accompanied by a not so smooth & irregular thump off the bull. It seemed like an obvious leakage & I confirmed it by placing my hand underneath the joint that connects the bend pipe & the silencer, & could feel the pressure of air leak. This fitment has a copper/brass look-like hose on the top of the joint which I think is to hold the exhaust in the place. The mechanic also put a few thin metal strips while the time of fitting to fill in the gap between the pipe & the silencer. I believe this gap w/o any packing is originally around a centimeter pr around. Any pros or cons for this leakage ??? Any recommendations to fix the leak and any light on probable workaround will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

- Vig.

I am facing a strange handling issue in my RE 2006 thunderbird. Something seems to be getting dragged while driving as though the wheel/chain/front dics are touching the tyres unintentionally.
If I put it in neutral and do a bit of rolling this effect is pretty much visible as the bike does not do a free rolling and comes to a halt after sometime.Tried checking if the tyres are touching the mudguards or the chain is getting stuck somewhere but did not find anything.

Any pointers?

as you can see in above pic just weld a another piece of pipe on bend pipe.

or simply ask the maker sans.

just park your bike on main stand, & check if the tyres are move freely by your hand, if not then you need to change the wleel bearings in the drums.

also if rear tyre is misaligned it can rub on the swing-arm

Smile Bullet Mechanics with Electrical Expertise

Hi,
I am re-posting my query in this forum because I did not get any responses from the Bullet Mechanics forum. People seem to be active in here. So please help me with my situation.

My custom assembly comes with its own circuit and custom wiring. I would like to get this job done by a Bullet mechanic who as sound knowledge of its electricals.

Please let me know if know anyone who can help me with this.

Other details:
  • Location: Bangalore (east)
  • Bike: Electra 5s 2009 model.

Fuel is coming out of my bull's fuel tank cap. I thought it must be the damaged "rubber-thingy" in the fuel tank cap, so I changed it. Still it was leaking, so I got a new fuel tank cap, then also it is leaking. Any ideas about why it's happening guys???

99% bullet mechanic know about the stock wiring & some JUGAD.

the LED's, resistor, diodes is a alien thing for them.
so i think you will have to DIY.

no you will have to buy new tank for that.

or other way is get a scraped hero honda tank, cut out the cap fitting area & weld to your old tank.
and just buy a OE hero honda fuel cap & you are done.

its a cheaper way if your old tank is in good condition.

Default Re: Enfield Queries

I plan to buy a new battery, so is it possible to install the big battery that come with the newer bikes? Yes, I'll need to change the battery cover and battery bracket obviously. but apart from these, is there any complication or is it just a simple just-fit-it-and-forget-it job?
