I run on 140's these days. Lovely tyres.

Can you give more info on that, after the recen kissing of road and wrist fracture, I am seriously thinking on a change.

Is the recently revamped Ceat tyres (the advt for those is running on TV) are good.

By the way the skidding is more cause of the front tyre and not the rear tyre, have you changed your front ones too.

I am not owner of Avenger but can you please let me know where this "Release On" is available in Bangalore? I tried couple of shops but no luck, though that time I didn't knew any brand name/item name.

Default Perfect tyre pressure (in PSI) for Bajaj Avenger 200cc

Hello guys,
I am a proud owner of Avenger 200cc. Kindly recommend me the perfect tyre pressure for Avenger (both city and highway). I think the manual suggests 25psi in rear and 21 in front.
However whenever i take my avenger to any air pump by default they fill more than 32 in rear and more than 28 in front.
also i tried to google it and got very contradictory results.

Please advice.

Thanks,
Kiran Vaidya

Bangalore climate is not condusive for rusting, so you should be rest assured, apply wax polish and you will be fine.

What manish says is correct. Only guys in coastal cities like chennai/cochin need to be bothered.
Yet here is the place you get it in bangalore.
If you keep going in JC road, you get minerva circle, continue on JC road towards town-hall direction (ie,. in minerva circle take right), and then the first immediate left in the signal. The whole lane is dedicated to two wheeler/four wheeler accessories.

I bought in "Motor Cycle Shringar" (contact patel: 9448343890). Ofcourse im not pitching for this shop, you can buy anywhere. You can call him and ask for guidance, if mine is not enough.

@jkdas: Does adding 140 tyres help you from not skidding ?
If im right skidding happens when i use front brake alone (disk brake lock up) and forget to use the rear brakes in case of emergency braking.
Please help me understand.

Btw, anyone tried fitting a Royal-enfied TBTS- handle-bar..
Please check this thread.. it has lots of mods on avenger..
handle-bar change, gas-shock absorbers, extra-foam up on seat to make it comfortable.

Im going to try these this or next weekend, will update on that. Anyone has some of their precious experience to share on this..please do, so it will help me.

"Question on tyre pressure" is also valid. Bad tyre pressure can also be the cause of skid. Any inputs on this ?

I have been using what the manual says all along(since July'10). So far so good. No issues. About the pumps filling in wrong, just ask them to fill 25-21. I always do.

Default Handle bar change and additional foam-up for seat

Hi,

Need some very important and urgent guidance
Im changing my avenger-220cc handle bar to RE-TBTS handle.
This is because i like the curved handle bar much better than the horizontal one. Main reason being the shoulders are very WELL RESTED in the curved handle-bar type, particularly the left shoulder which keeps getting exercised when i press the clutch, in present. I am sure every one will have the same uplifting left-shoulder everytime when one changes gear. (Also please note i am not short i am 5 ft 11 inches and can easily reach the handle bar, but the shoulders are not reseted). My ortho said, rested shoulders (as it is available in RE-TBTS) is very important for long-term pain-free rdie.

Just checked in the enfied shop in JC road, RE-TBTS handle bar was not fitting properly, but the next size of it was a perfect fit.
But since it is next size the disk-brake cables need to be changed, may be even the clutch cable. I am new to mods, here are few questions:

a. Is this is a safer change/mods to make.
Mechanic says disk-brake cable from TBTS will fit and will work fine, no issues

b. Disc brake cable he says is around 1000 Rs Is it that much any idea ? Will i be devoid of warranty.

Any guidance, please give your view points on a and b

By the way, i just now added up 2 inches of 40 density foam to front and rear, its awesome comfort, will post pictures soon

thanks
Hari

Hey JK, where did you get your 140 tire? Is it 140/80 15?

Hey Avenger owners,

I am planning to buy an Avenger 220 soon. A flagship bike like Pulsar 220 has many extra utilities compared to an Avenger. Does anyone care to compile a list of features/utilities that you miss when you go for an Avenger?

For example, I consider the ease of handle bar locking within the ignition socket to be a feature, which is probably going to be absent in Avenger. And does Avenger have a fuel level indicator? What are the other utility differences?

It's there. It was missing in earlier version, now it's mounted on the gas tank.

Thats cool. Basically, once we decide on the CC, most people don't care too much about the max speed or the torque. We won't get many opportunities to clock a 120 kmph on a daily basis. So what matters will be the small utilities that might make dealing with the bike easier. Like the handle lock I mentioned. So I was just looking for a list of such differences. The things we miss because we go for the 'retro' cruiser.
