You can email them at customerservice@royalenfield.com , also if you have a twitter account you can tweet them at @royalenfield as they are pretty active on it.
Also which city are you currently residing in , if its Mumbai or Pune , you can contact the Regional Manager

Mr. Priyank Lotlikar (9833274830) - Mumbai

Mr .Umesh Abhang Dinkar ( 98907 97014) -Pune

Try contacting your territory/regional service manager. Mails sent to customer support are also forwarded to them.

Else, bring your ECU to India and get it remapped at any RE Workshop.

I did bring my ECU to India during my last visit a few months ago. The RE workshops at Goa and Kolkata did not have the equipment to do the remap.

With no other option probably I will have to buy a new ECU from racedynamics.

Default Braking Issues

hey all,

I have been now using the c5 for more than 2 years. extremely happy with the performance etc etc, but i need help in sorting my braking issues.

The front disc does a decent job, but the rear drums are just horrid. is there a way i can install discs for the rear ? if yes, who can do that in Mumbai

thanks for the help in advance.

Sad that the equipment was missing in those cities. I hope you tried contacting the territory service manager there, as workshop people goof up with customers sometimes. I would strongly suggest against getting an aftermarket ECU only because you are unable to get your ECU remapped.

If you have a non O2 sensor bike, you can ship your ECU to the RE office/friend/relative in Gurgaon, I can request one of the managers there to remap it and ship it back to you. You pay the shipping charges.

TB500 comes with a rear disc brake, but it's performance is not rated so good. Try the TB500 rear brakes and you can get it if it satisfies you. Else you can look at the rear disc brake of Pulsar/duke etc. I would suggest getting the needed parts from TB500 and rest of the parts(caliper, disc plate,etc) from some other bike if you are not satisfied with the stock TB500 braking performance. This will ensure that no shoddy work is done in installation of the brakes and give it an OEM and reliable fit.

Looks neat. From your post i understand that even tank needs to be changed. How is the first impression. any jerks? have you noticed any increase or decrease in power. What was the total cost involved?

No change of tank required. We need to get an attachment made to fit the regular fuel tap as shown in the pic.

Bike feels like a machismo now. Idles much low. Just got it last night, so yet to test it out properly. felt a slight drop in low end torque, as i am on the 115 main jet. Will have explore with different jet sizes to extract the best of power and mileage. With carb, the entire system is become simple. Feels like there is lots of scope to experiment and explore. lets see how it goes.

Thanks Iron.Head, mine is the non O2 sensor bike but I really do not know anyone in Gurgaon, so stuck again.

Btw one Mr Gandhi from RE called me the other day and said he would get one of his service engineers from India to call me up but I really doubt whether they can do much from India as the solution to my problem is updating the ECU mapping.

Every time I ride to places where temperatures are below 10 degrees celcius my bike starts missing a beat and misfiring. Could someone please clarify what is the relation between this behavior and the lack of a lamda sensor. Why does it misfire in cold weather ?

I keep reading about CL500s going to Ladakh and so on. I wonder with such a pathetic issue how are they doing it ?

Seriously thinking about selling it off and going for a bigger v-star Yamaha instead.

My 2011 USA version of the fuel injected 500 came with a Bosch WR7 DDC4 spark plug installed and I found the engine would often misfire, even when just motoring along at a steady speed.

I replaced the Bosch spark plug with a NGK BPR6ES.
All misfires went away and after putting over 8000 miles (12,880 km) on the NGK sparkplug it is still in excellent condition.
