Hi Koolsun ... How did you manage to change your stock 150 to a 180? or is it a typo where you did not want to include the engine?

since you have 17 wheels at the back, u must be facing huge speedo error as the speedo is trued for the 18" wheels and hence u will also need to change the speedo internal assy!

hey i think u can continue with the same speedo but if u do really want accurate reading contact a Bajaj dealer and get it done....actually one hardly looks at the meter during city rides...by the time u look at the meter and see the reading u'll be sayin hi to the person in front o u...ha ha ha

There's gotta be a difference when the circumference of the tyre is different and the meter has problems reading the exact speed at times. so contacting the bajaj dealer for advice is what i meant coz they know their bikes well....

about the joke.... i cant think of makin it more simpler... its just that u'll ram into the person in front of u....understood????

hey it was one of those dry days yesterday and i took the bike out for a spin,managed a 109kmph on the sigma with the speedo showwing 115kmph,well the speed might be on the slower side but the handling has improved alot,the bike feels more confident while goin into corners and the side tio side flickability of the bike has increased allows me to carve my way through the traffic like a piece of cake.

on the karizma i hav seen 140/70 pirelli sport demons but believe me they look like 100/90's i think 110/90 duros or 120/90 duros wud be perfect it will look good without affecting the performance.
