hi sudheer ! i too had that leak problem, exactly where you have it , got it fixed.

Wanted to ask a question, but thought why to create a new thread, so asking it here :

Can i remove the PAV unit from my Std 350 ? will it adversely effect the engine ? what difference would it make though ? I am hungry for more thump, though i have added the RE Retro Bubble silencer/bend pipe :(

Shan,

It won't make much of a difference for the thump. What it will do is, eliminate the somewhat irritating chatter during deceleration. Your emissions at idle will be higher if you take off the PAV: not good for our planet.

Cheers,

Jay

Default A bull is a bull.....rest are bikes!

Hey congrats Sudheer...!!

have been wanting(needing) to buy a bullet for a long time, so every now and then when i read threads like these gives a measure of satisfation!

one newbie question from me (sorry if off topic)
is there something called "Bullet Standard 500"?
other variants like "flameburner/fireburner" engine and the "crusader" engine...there is not a mention of these on RE websites

heard this in a friend circle, so just confirming.

thanks in advance.

cheers!

Bullet Standard 500 was available up until 2007 I believe. After which the production was stopped due to emission norms and poor sales.

Default Re: Advice needed on buying a bullet std 350 Edit - Now Delivered

Hello guys,

I am considering buying a 1982 model soon. I met this gentleman riding his bull on NH7 from Hosur to Bangalore. When prodded further he revealed he hasn't really thought of selling it but will do so if he gets a good price. So I took his business card and told him I would get back soon.

The bike is registered in Kerala. Now assuming he has all the important documents, and that he can arrange for NOC so that I can have the bull re-registered in Bangalore where I live, how much do you guys think its worth? Also assume there isn't much cosmetic/engine work needed and the bike is in good condition.

The old bullets are known for the simple timing setup, which really needs an expert mechanic to set it right.

The old Cast Iron bullets are also known to be rust buckets, which have a very big dependency on battery, wiring lights etc. a weak battery will give u enough of night mares.

buy the new one @vishwasvr, unless u are;

1. sold on spending atleast two weekends at your favorite mechanic's work shop in a month.
2. spending equal amount of money as that of a new bilke...on this old bike in the end, if not more.

Need to know more abt Bullet problems, encourage me to write more
