Hi ManikJeet,

That is a reflection of the overhead cabin light.

Yes Krishna, I shall change my signature and have already requested mods to delete the ad.

Ntomer, Good to know someone else is also on a quest to tame this beast.

Good going Raj!!!

Now a few things you need to do:

1. Forget FFE
2. Forget K&N intake
3. Get better front seats
4. Add the A/C - If Sripad is expensive then talk to Imran about his guy
5. Add a removable insulated partition behind the front seats. Doesn't necessarily have to close ALL the gaps. This will cool the cabin down a lot faster with less effort from engine and compressor
6. Budget for a decent stereo
7. Get better internal lighting

And most importantly...

Show up for OTRs or at least reply to messages!

The clutch that i got from Laxman Auto, Opera House does not fit.
The guy from Laxman Auto said that if there are no screw marks etc then he would take it back and replace it. Called up my mech and told him to keep it intact.

Hopefully i should get a replacement clutch tom.

Monroe gas shocks are not available. I am going to get 2 rods for the soft top. Both rods are the OE thick rods that come at the back.

By this weekend, the clutch (hopefully), aux lamps, philips rally bulbs and battery disconnect switch should be installed.

Default Seats Redone

Seats are now refoamed and feel better than before.

Time taken was 5 hours for refoaming front 2 seats and adding seat cover plus adding seat cover for back benches.

All the covers were stiched and put on hence more time.

Desmo, change the front number plate. It will break in it's current form on the very first obstacle.

Can both the bumpers be removed within a matter of minutes??

If yes, then i shall do that before the start of EXAMM and AKC and fix them just before entering the tarmac (that is if that can be done easily)

Alternatively, i am thinking of solutions to permanently remove the front bumper and fix the lights and number plate etc.

Hey Desmo,
You can remove both the bumpers, the rear number plate holder and the side step, a day before AKC at your authorized service center or if you have the necessary spares, you can do it yourself.
Keep them safely at home and get them fixed once you are back from AKC.
I agree that without tail lights and indicators, it is risky to drive.
But, you would anyway be going there in a convoy right? So, should not be a problem, me thinks.
Cheers,
Deepak

Hi Deepak,

my thing is if i remove the bumpers in the city and drive down to the OTR place, wont the cops stop me and fine me for driving without the indicators.

Thats why i asked if possible, can i remove those after i reach the OTR place..

Cheers,
Raj
