    Hi, I would require some help or suggestions regarding the registration of my Impulse.The Bike had to be registered in New Delhi but was bought from a dealer ( Largest hero dealer ) in Meerut.

    The bike was bought on 29th Of January 2017, received the sales receipt and the insurance from the dealer. I was told that the temporary registration ( from meerut ) shall be done in a few days and i would be emailed the document for the same.

    I received the temporary registration in a few days which was valid till 8th of March 2017. Since then, the dealer is making excuses with regards to the delivery of my registration certificate and permanent number.

    Sometimes they say that the process is done and are awaiting the RC and sometimes they inform that there was a raid at the RTO in delhi which has delayed the process.

    I even told them that i shall collect the RC directly from the RTO but was informed that it was not possible.

    Any idea how to proceed with this ? The dealer did not even give me a tax receipt. Please help.

    Hey people,

    sorry for vanishing from the forum. As got busy with new job n stuff.

    Just wanted to update after 4 yrs of ownership of my Dragon (thats wat i can my Impulse).

    Its been 4 long years with my bike and to be honest. I never got a change to complain anything abt it til now.

    Recent 2 weeks back had been to ooty (solo). with 2 or 3 stops.

    The bike has never had any issues til now from the time i purchased (had a carb issue when i purchased and they replaced it fter many days of cold war between me n service people)

    Its been 21k kms ODO.

    Changed the stock back indicators to Maruthi 800 indicators. (yeah u heard that right).

    Need to get few things done on my next service
    > Fork oil replacment (suspension in front is getting a bit hard)
    > Cone bearing replacment (the tuk tuk sound stil persists from the time of purchase. may be faulty bearings)
    > Sproket replacment.

    Hi Guys

    Yesterday when I went to start my bike after 3 days, I saw that rear tyre had no air. Took my bike to a nearby tyre walla... He inspected and suggested to change tyre. Bike has run 24000 kms on stock tyre. It was punctured but he suggested that side walls are cracked so it's better to change the tyre. I had no time to think or research so the best available tyre was michelin sirac street 100/90 17 for 2100Rs. After fitting it I rode almost 50 kms on this new rear tyre and I felt my bike is more flickable and agile. Now he said that front tyre generally lasts double the rear one. But front tyre too has cracks. Should I change it and which is the best suitable tyre to pair with michelin one in 90/90 19 size?

    Yes it is but 110 size is not available anywhere. Amazon clams that ceat grip 110/90 17 it's available but price is tooooo much. And I believe car 110 size is very old stock. Ceat had stopped making grip 110 size just after impulse failed to attract customers. Moreover I had to put tyre on urgent bases.
