    @Jeanie

    Are you planning to use the same Cylinder Head?

    Valve timings differ between RTR 180 and 160, so if your planning to get the RTR 180's Cylinder Head. then next concern is the Exhaust.

    RTR 160's Exhaust has a smaller mouth to the Cylinder end and not sure how to increase the Dia, so you have to switch over to an FFE or RTR 180's Muffler kit.

    Let me list down the Parts that are required,
    RTR180's,
    Cylinder Head (Gaskets and others can remain the same)
    Exhaust
    Secondary air injection pipe. (RTR180's have Air Reservoir in it)
    Cylinder Block and Piston
    Carburetor Assy
    Intake Pipe at Carburetor
    Crankshaft Assy
    Oil Pump with its Driven Gear(due to 1.2 liters PM capacity in RTR180) (PS; Only the Oil Pump capacity has been increased and the Engine oil capacity is still 1000Ml)
    Engine Sprocket teeth for 13T to 14T. (To avoid Transmission loss)

    I suppose its better to order for an FFE to start with and then gradually get the other modds from Joel.

    Forgot to mention,

    RTR180's,

    TCI Unit
    Rear Sprockets from 44T to 46T

    and to complete the entire setup more precisely,

    You have to either change or modify the swingarm to increase the wheel base and also get a new Drive Chain.

    So you don't get to go for 180cc(forget 190cc) from an RTR160.

    Hi guys!!
    I want to upgrade my 220 to a better performing motorchcle. What all should i consider for an upgradation, other than works related to engine mods??

    For example sparkplugs , airfilters, exhausts or anything else.
    Only recently i came to know that FFEs are not legal in our country, so alif any other upgrades in regards to exhausts that might help?

    Appreciate the help

    Buy a more powerful motorcycle!

    No, this isn't a sarcastic sadist reply. Read the thread above quoted by @Soul_Hunter.

    How about upgrading the bike in total instead of these upgrades which may/may not give you power boost but definitely won't last half of what a stock bike lasts, at least not without giving you troubles every now and then and putting a big hole in your pocket. . . So it's better, you decide, before that go through the thread mentioned above and then say if you want to go for an upgrade. . .

    Cheers!!!

    That wasn't funny actually. People are trying to show you the after effects of Hot Rods and you are giving such a sarcastic comment. Go to Google and type in The Powerhouse FZ18 xbhp and go through that thread for better understanding.
