Today I had taken my bike out for the first time after I got the number.

Man the bike is a bliss to drive. I touched 50Kms only as the bike is still in the running in period. (Only 56kms done on Odo).

The feeling of driving the Pulsar 220 is something that I just cannot describe in words. The feeling is so different then the other bikes that I have driven.

I drove the bike for 50 kms in the day today to commute to my work place and back. All the motorist on the road were taking a second look on the bike as these are not been seen much on the road in mumbai yet.

I faced 1 small problem in the bike today and hence would be taking it to the service station too for the same. While driving I suddenly saw the tell tale light for Oil blinking. I could not tell the reason as to why the light came on. Hence I stopped the bike and shut down the engine and removed the keys. After 30 seconds I again restarted the bike and it started without any issue of the Oil Blinking. I am still not sure as to why that light came on and what made it disappear too but i will surely take the bike to the service personnel tomorrow.

there shdnt be any harm as the sensors will adjust to the extra flow themselves.
When FI bikes/cars go to hills, the air becomes thin but the vehicles doesnt face any issues while operating coz the sensor adjust. Likewise, even with a k&n on, the sensors shall adjust.

as for tyres, you may have only one option : duros
I think after installing a K&N in a FI, to adjust the sensor, the battery has to be disconnected and reconnected, its basically like resetting the sensor. This will aide the sensor to adjust itself.

Same here .. the Stock bike looks much much better ...

Was in Bangalore 3 weeks and happened to visit a shop called "Bik* W***d" on JC road to pick up headlight bulbs for my Machismo 500. There were a couple of guys talking to the shopkeeper .. One of them wanted to fit a K&N filter on his P200. He asked the Shopkeeper how it would sound .. The shopkeeper replied back that "It would sound like an RD350" !! I was pretty amused by this conversation !! Further the guy also wanted to fit a NOS unit on his bike !! The shopkeeper was atleast honest in telling him that fitting a NOS on a P200 wouldn't make much difference !!

I am looking forward to change the tyres of my pulsar, can some one please guide me as to which tyres should I try. I am more interested in using the Yamaha's FZ16 rear tyre. Do you think that would be a direct fit on the bike as both share the same 17 inch rims.

If yes, are the FZ16 tyres available in the market adn what price?. Can you also suggest some other brands like Michelin and also approx cost.
