Default Re: Converting Light Crank to Heavy Crank in Royal Enfield Standard Bullet 350 1996 M

Hi,

What is the reason you want to change to a heavier crank? I think the heavier crank will also need a better crank-bearing.

I am not aware if anyone has done such conversion, but theoratically - this should be possible as Electra / C350 share the same crank case as STD UCE. This is with assuption that you will use the crank of STD uce and will not go for some after-market stuff (welding extra plates etc to increase the weight).

On -ves of heavier crank:
1. Initial pickup will be sluggish as compared to earlier version
2. There may be a slight drop in mileage

+ves:
1. The bullet will chug along happily at lower RPMs. 40 - 45 KMPH will be easily possible on 5th gear
2. Thump - while this is highly subjective - I feel that the STD uce's thump is slightly different than that of electra UCE. I do not have any data points on comparision and this is purely my perseption!

Cheers and happy thumping!

Has anyone tried to convert any UCE bulls to Heavy Crank? I am aware that the STD 350 UCE does come with a heavy crank, but has anyone thought of adding still more weight?

Hi guys, and I restarting this whole heavy crank debate again. My simple query is how much was the actual weight of a 1960 to late 70s Bullet's crank. My mech claims it was 18 kgs. Is he correct???

Hi guys, Is there any mech in Pune who can do this heavy crank conversion??? I have a friend who needs to make his 89 Bullet's crank heavier.
And my earlier query is still unanswered: What is how much was the actual weight of a 1960 to late 70s Bullet's crank. My mech claims it was 18 kgs. Is he correct???
Thanks in advance
