    Lightbulb Jugaad-making do

    "Jugaad"

    Yes the most important concept we follow in India: jugaad. Making do.

    The nearest English equivalent is “jury-rigging”, but that translation doesn’t do jugaad justice.

    Its like “a duct-tape arrangement.” Or simply “attaining any objective with the available resources at hand”.

    Jugaad is about improvising a solution. It’s about ingenuity in the face of adversity.

    Jugaad is the philosophical outlook necessary to make it work, regardless of what “it” is. It’s about solving problems with what you have, not with what you wish you had.

    Jugaad is how everyone gets by.

    Lets not get embarassed and accept it that we as bikers ourselves may have done that some or the other time, be it to save money or to come out of a hard situation. It needs some intelligence and some creativity.

    This thread strives to bring out all of this - May it be funny or something really very intelligent !

    For e.g.

    Me and my friends went offroading and one of the bike had a fall and the clutch lever broke...

    We obviously couldnt find spares in the middle of the jungle and had to somehow get the bike out of there...

    This is one of the "jugaad" that we did and it helped







    Other alternative was to tie sticks/twigs/branches and the clutch lever in between for more strength..and it worked well..



    This was just one post..

    I'm sure we as intelligent Indians do have something or the other to share,so lets talk about it here !
    A very good and safe biker not only because he can pop up either of the wheels,scrape his knees on a corner or go fast and make it look stylish but because he very well knows his limits and capabilities and has the patience to learn about others and ride safe ! :)

    I remember doing such a Jugaad on my Pulsar 150 some 6 years back. It was among the first model of Pulsars I had. The funny thing was that the screw in the clutch lever always snapped in 2 pieces after every 2 or 3 thousand kms. Somehow all the pressure came onto that one screw whenever I depressed the clutch. I was coming home from office and just after a signal on Pune-Solapur Road I heard a "thakk" sound and the screw was gone. Split into two. This was the first time the screw had broken. The cable and everything else was working fine. But now there was nothing for the clutch lever to engage around and was moving freely all around the place. I was confused as well as amazed at how that particular screw could break into 2... Wondering on where I could find a mechanic, my eyes fell on a piece of a broken pencil lying on the side of the road. And it was just the Perfect size! Jugaad...Took the pencil, adjusted the clutch cable and put it in place of the screw. The pencil held on snugly due to the pressure generated by the clutch lever. And I rode my bike with that pencil for 3 days. And for those 3 days I always kept a spare pencil just in case..

    Overall I had to change the screw 5-6 times during the time the bike was with me.

    Very True- "Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity."

    I like- "Bikes are not supposed to be a rational decision. If you can park it and walk away without looking back to admire it, you got the wrong one."

    A jugad tip from my side :
    you feel disk brake lever spongy like some air bubbles is present in the system, but there's no way or spares etc to get it bleeded.. So the jugad is press & hold the brake lever as tight/hard as possible & tie it with the handel bar so that brake lever stay pressed. Wait for 2 hours before untieing it and you'll have much lower spongy feeling.. Wait overnight & it will be like new.
    Works on all disk brake systems desi bikes features, though cant say about the booster equipped systems (never tested on them)

    My Jugaad-

    Problem - Crashed my 220 once. The front fender cracked. It was vibrating and touching the tire. It was also getting on my nerves

    Solution - Put scotch tape from underneath and filled the crack with fevi quick.

    Result - Its been 2.5 years and many more crashes, the fender is still stuck with the same tape and glue
