    Hi Rahul,

    Below is an example of decoding the Royal Enfield VIN number, hope it helps, i am not sure about the first 3 characters.

    ME3U5S5F0BL108227


    U = ENGINE FAMILY
    5 = ENGINE CAPACITY (500cc, 350cc)
    S = TYPE OF START (electric?)
    5 = TRANSMISSION (5 speed?)
    F = FUEL FEED (fuel injection?)
    0 = BLANK FOR FUTURE USE (?)
    B = YEAR OF MANUFACTURE (-9=2009, A=2010, B=2011, C=2012)
    L = MONTH OF MANUFACTURE (A=JAN, B=FEB, C=MAR...L=OCT, N=DEC)
    108227= PRODUCTION SERIAL NUMBER

    Default Re cl 350

    Hi Friends,

    A week ago i have become a proud owner of RE CL 350 (Black), The stunning look and performance is awasome. One thing which bothers me is the absence of Fuel indicator. i just want to know the possibilities to replace the Ammeter with Fuel indicator (CL 500 is having it in the same place). Please suggest me on this.

    Hi,
    Congrats for the wheels ,
    I too got the bike last weekend, I would rather say reserve is also a kind of fuel indicator saying '' you have left with last ~50kms get to the petrol bunk! ''

    Happy thumping.

    Ownership Experience:
    I must say riding a RE requires lots of patience and discipline, atleast I felt for myself.
    Till date Mid May 2013: i was riding all four strokes - past 8 years and a two stroke for past six months and suddenly
    after trying to make a cut with ~2 quintal kgs you can feel the difference.


    Problems I faced [I am not against RE products, I myself love bull]
    Coming to Quality Product you get:
    Broken Speedometer Cable Twice. first 1500kms
    Upper Beam not working ~ first 500kms [got replaced in 1st service]
    Brake liner got stuck twice in first 1500kms
    Paint Quality very bad. - started to peel off on rear mud gaurd

    RVM's are of no use Especially in the rains and Dark time ;
    it appears to be like lightings[from rear vehicles] + water Drops with vibrations :P
    - ASC guy said no solution for this[- Exp. senior Inputs are Welcome ]

    Problems from Delivery itself:
    Incomplete Toolkit - fixed
    Low engine Oil Level from the Showroom -fixed
    Front T loose - got corrected in 1st service
    I must say you should visit local trusted garagewala fellow after delivery.
    I have my own since 20 years[for the old bikes, my dad used to go] and now me since 8 years - so he helped me out with this.

    Seats :
    I hate those seats Seriously, they sore the butts of both the rider and pillion ;one cannot continously
    ride till 100kms atleast me ,on that what they call seats [will change to electra ones or aftermarket ones]
    - any inputs on this will are welcome again

    Fuel Tank Capacity = 13.5 L [i feel which is Low!]


    Did two times Alibag Trip in run in period ~250 kms[both way from thane] each and following are the reviews
    1. Engine will never let you down.
    2. Head Turner for sure
    3. Much more Stable. thanks to Rear Tyre
    4. Good Fuel Economy
    getting ~40 in city and ~44 on highways [i dont drag, always cruise at 60-70]
    5. Headlights
    6. Honk. - It irritates people :P ~ though i use it when required [I am against Sound :P]

    Overall Performance technically impressed me, though i am bullet lover since school days
    But the Cosmetic Quality is below Average, they should think over it.

    I have faced this issue, I am not sure if anyone has faced the same.

    After ~50-60 kms of running : for rear Tyre , Tube Valve becomes loose[I believe due to Vibrations- not sure], which results in flat Tyre :P. I have checked for any Punctures there are none.

    Local Tyre wala said Tube is Faulty, only solution is to change the Tube.

    Any inputs if anyone faced the same?

    Also please recommend the Tyre Pressure which is suitable for this Season Especially in Mumbai Roads

    34 Rear , 28 front is the current pressure i am using. [My Weight is one Quintal ]

    Regards,
    Infinity

    Hi friend, there are many who are selling customized RE seats. To name few trusted and renowned ones. Try for Sans Inc. Delhi (Saurabh katar is the person), yo can check their fb page also or Royal Motor Cycle or khazanchi and there are many more. You would get nice looking comfortable seats at a very reasonable price
