what a bike, now change the front drums with discs, the tank with the chrome one and the rear light with the round one.
that will make it a killer.

Neat bike , congrats!

i was wondering too.. RE still makes the 4S? This conventional headlight dome looks much much better than the new multi focal ones on the 5s.

@shivshankar - thanks. Even i got hooked from the very first ride.

@amit V8 - thanks for the suggestions, will think about them.

@niks_devil666 - thanks.This isn't from an old stock or an obsolete model.
The RE Electra 4Speed is easily available at all the authorised dealerships.

@shan2129 - thanks, and yes i'm trying for the 9999 reg no, as i mentioned earlier.Currently running on the temp reg.

Congrats on the Electra Mag9. Please strile out the alloys from your accessories list and instead include the disc brake kit. Alloy wheels do not suit the Bullet at all. Also include a set of fork boots cos the bike looks incomplete without it (exposed fork tubes do not look good on the Bullet).

Incase you are changing the number plate to a smaller one - change the tail lights to a BSA one too. They look much better than the original ones.

Congrats again and Ride Safe.

Thanks V12. Was eagerly waiting for a post from you.
Although the disc brakes were in priority list, i found the stock drum brakes fine for my style of riding as i bought it for my lazy rides.
And would think about the fork boots.

I have no idea how a BSA light looks like.
I'm really interested in customizing it a bit.
Can you please tell me where can i find best quality accesories & other stuff for my bullet in New Delhi, or somewhere nearby.
That would be of great help.
Thanks.

Looks awesome buddy, You are lucky you get these in Delhi becasue the 4S is not available here in B'bay. Brilliant choice.

I just got rid of my starter as it was emitting excessive noise during low rpm. Kick started Enfield feels good to me.

Ya and as advised by V12 please dont replace the stock rims with alloys.

The BSA type tail light will look sweet on it.

Enjoy the duug duug my friend.

Ride safe.

Cool

@shan2129 - Haha, It's already very special dude.

Some mods which are in the pipeline are:

1) Tubeless tyres & alloy wheels
2) Disc Brakes (If i'll feel the need)
3) Split seats
4) Dupont Chromalusion Flip-Flop custom paint job
(Only after it gets a little old ~5-6months)
5) Other small nick nacks

I got some ideas when i went through these websites:

a) India's leading distributor of motorcycle parts. Specialists in Royal Enfield spares and accessories.
b) Enfield Bullet 350/500 Spares & Repairs, Delhi, India
c) Royal Enfield Zone - Distributors and Exporters of Royal Enfield Bikes, Spare Parts and Accessories from New Delhi, India :: :: :: :: Extensive range of spares and accessories for Royal Enfield Bullet, Electra, Machismo, Thunderbird, Standard

They've got some really cool stuff. Do check them out.

Great! you got the number you wanted. Congrats.

The disc for the front should be a must have. Get it done from the service guys so as not void warranty.

Even people from the other states say the same thing.
What could be the reason behind it, isn't it very strange?
