Default Re: Accessories for the Royal Enfield

Hello all.

Can someone tell me where I can source the following (in INR - everything's available in pounds and dollars, but I can't afford .uk and .us stores) from :

1. Smaller headlights (preferably 4.5" or 5") with a single clamp on the bottom instead of two on the sides (for the kaan). Like this one - http://www.amazon.com/Motorcycle-Rou.../dp/B0086341BC

2. Knob switches like the one in this link (except that I'm looking for smaller ones and preferably in chrome for the old school look) - http://www.ebay.com/itm/LUCAS-HEAD-L...-/261091506387

3. Better options for handle grips.

4. Ok, this one's a long shot - 12V Lithium Iron battery (there's Shorai, Ballistics, Moty Design, etc, but I'm curious as to if there's anyone in India selling them).

I've seen similiar switches on 2 different motorcycle last time I was at my mechanics.One was on a Rajdoot Bobby and the other was on an Enfield.He told me that they(switches) are off of scooters.I'm sure they are available in India.Show the pic to any old school mech.

The head lamp with a single clamp at the bottom like you've shown.I've seen just headlights without the clamp in some of the local accessory shops.I'd guess the clamp arrangement might have to be made.Won't be that hard.

No idea about lithium-ion packs,Why would you want them?I don't think theres any significant performance increase involved,you could spend that extra expense on something better.

I'll be ordering a few of the parts I need through ebay us .Seems like a better option than wasting money on half assed products here

The RE workshop in Pune where I get my bullet serviced recommended Bosch horns and he is quoting INR 1500 for the same (including the horn and the relays, labour etc). When I asked about Roots, he said that they are susceptible to water-damage (any rain water entering the horn will kill them).

Any suggestions from senior bulletier?

Cheers and happy thumping!
hi All,
I have a STD -350 UCE , i have just finished 8.5K km's on the odo,
I am confused which silencer to go for ?
Does the RE Short bottle come with conical baffles ?

Do you suggest the dealers Indore model ?
Is it a hollow one or does it contain baffles too ?

Whats the difference b/w these two ?

How is Sans Inc SB compared to these two options ?

I am expecting a decent thump , not too loud, heavy.

Another mod i have planned is for the HORN ,
The stock horn is too low, can i install another horn of the same specification ?
(Dual Horn's i have heard somewhere) , without discarding the old one ?

Experts please help.

Go with RE silencers (off road ones are good IMHO) - they are not very loud like few other aftermarket ones. I personally prefer the medium thump without ear deafening sound! The best approach is - you go to service station and check few bikes with modded exhausts pipes yourself. Choose the one you like it. Why get stuck in all terminologies and confusion?

The stock horns are pretty powerful. Don't recommend on changing it.

AFAIK the offroader once are good. Though i went ahead and bought an RRP free flow exhaust for my cl500. Its a bit loud and expensive (8K),has decent thump but has clear performance gains.Though i have only done 600km on the odo and have not crossed 70,i felt the bike to be much eager and quicker(not judging by the sound).You can also try the wild boar made by shakeel who is based in Pune.

Hi, does anyone know where I can get luggage carriers like Ladakh carrier for my classic 350 in Bangalore and how much would they cost? It would be really helpful on long journeys.

Head to JC Road. After the first Signal ask the local shops for Sandhya Automobiles.

You will get it there for sure.

Hi All ,
I recently noticed a white liquid like strain (Dried Up) flowing from my battery box to down below, till the round metallic cap and frame.
Is it the acid leakage from the battery ?
Out of curiosity, I opened up the metal box/ battery cover and was surprised to find the right side of the terminal fully oxidized , also there was lots of powder that had collected inside the box.
I cleaned the box and placed it back.

What might be the reason ?

The fully oxidized battery terminal tells me the battery is or has leaked in the past.

The white corrosion is very acidic and it needs to be neutrialized to prevent further damage.

This can be done by rinsing the corroded battery terminal and all of the areas that have shown any trace of the white fluid or powder with a mixture of water and baking or washing soda. Baking soda is NOT Baking Powder.

Baking soda is Sodium bicarbonate, a mild "base" which will react with the acidic residue causing it to foam while the neutralizing is taking effect. Washing Soda is Sodium carbonate, another mild "base" which will also work.

Once all of the foaming stops, rinse the area with plain water.

The leakage from the battery may have been caused by several different things.
Overfilling the battery cells with water will cause them to lose the battery fluid as the battery is charged. A crack in the battery case can be caused by vibration, The sealing compound at the battery terminals may crack or fail allowing the fluid to leak.

There are a few "fixes" for leakage at the terminals but usually when a battery starts leaking, it is a sign that the battery has lived its life and should be replaced with a new one.

Hi Jim,
Thanks for the elaborate reply.
My bike was serviced 3 months ago. The battery was recharged too.
Its first recharge.
Infact my battery was down & I had to drag my bull , luckily it stopped in the lane next to my home, that's how I gave the bike for servicing.

My daily commute is 16KM (to & fro) , Office is nearby , on a Highway
Usually how long does a battery last ? considering my low usage.
I have a STD 350 UCE , July 2013 Model

Not sure of the STD 350.

The battery of my classic lasted a little over a year. But mine was used for short commutes, and button/self start, and hence did not completely recharge.

A couple of my friends are still running with the original battery after 2.5years, but they use the bike as a daily commute.
