The discs are surely of a Pulsar. But it has been fitted directly to a drum i suppose.

That is a good idea.. me second in line.

Friends what do you think about the idea of using Pulsar digital speedo in place of that. is it mechanically feasible. I have heard the pulsar pinion has magnets and sensors . what do you think about it.

I have given up the idea or using this Kinetic drum. Is it posible if I change the drum to pulsar, then I can use the fiero F2 speedo. can it be done in the same fork.

wrong. the disk brake assembly is genuin. there is no drum brake. even the front forks are from Kinetic GF170.
Whoever did this job did it neat.

As far as installing the wheel hub sensor unit and the wire, it is feasible.
But you will have to check for the Tachometer, various tell-a-tale lights.

Problem will be with Spokes and it won't perform as good as this disk.

You can trust me as I have done a lot of DIY on my GF170laser. You need to be a good DIYer to maintain it in good condition and I'm proud that mine was when we parted.

Anyway. first thing you should do is, get a Pulsar analog Speedo cable and attach it to the hub. rotate the wheel and see if the other end of the cable rotates.
If it does then you can buy a Pulsar speedometer.
if your bike doesn't have a Engine RPM sensor then buy a Speedo from some other Bajaj bike which only has speedometer.
F2 did have a tachometer.

I wish you could be in Mumbai. I love bike DIY jobs.
PM me for any details you want.

What I meant so say was.. is it possible to change the HUB, then can it be fixed in the existing fork, will the pinion wheel work. Will the disc be compatible with the new hub.

My friend is changing his pulsar spoke wheels to alloy. So i am going to get his front wheel hub and wheel.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks,
Chipz
