    Congrats on its re-birth!
    Like ive told many.Go for tuning ONLY if you cant really upgrade.TUNING has its perks.its never 100% reliable .

    Harish, do search for and experiment on more stuff for Pulsar 180 UG3, so that I may purchase it from you.

    As it is, I'm still waiting for some decent kits for my P180 and its been too long.

    Man you have some patience. I tried Joel's big bore twice - seized on me both times; lost my crank too in the process and spent about 55k total on the mods - eventually had to return to stock cause honestly i was sick of the seizing blocks and the ludicrous explanations and finger pointing. Since then I've decided to never mod again. Wasn't worth the 15cc boost to be honest. Could have sold my bike, added 50k and brought a brand new v2.0 instead. Ridiculous experience. I'm surprised Joel is still selling that stuff - I would have thought after soooo many stories of the block seizing the issue would have been rectified by now.

    alankarmisra - WTH!!! 55K, I'm really sorry to hear your case I initially thought its just one of the case like what ROCKRZ said...

    But then I see a pattern here, RevHard Biplab's, then HarishK's & now your's. But then tuning is all about what Ranjith says...

    Makes me think MAY be that's the reason, people in the WEST don't just rebore the cylinder, but play with ECM, full system exhaust & timings

    Yea, I understood that part; what I mean to say is, I'm observing a consistent pattern that the first block getting seizure followed by a fix.

    BTW, try getting your vehicle dyno'd; what I understand is the dyno's should be available at most KTM (PBK then) outlets; it requires some rapport to be built with them though. You'll get to know the exact figure after carrying out the performance mod. That way your claims are more concrete, reliable & also will know how much you paid for the bhp increase.

    Try Try Try till you succeed... and you did it royally

    Hearty congrats bro..
    Actually i read the heading and i thought OH shit.. another person duped by the 165 cc block. but glad that you took up the challenge...

    looking forward to meet you in person.. i could gain a lot of know how from you...
    I had also been promised the sky. and I spent amounts in which i could have got a second hand bike. and still i did not get even close to what i wanted. ultimately, I took the job in my hands. no consultation at all. you see, if there is a problem and if i cant rectify it, I believe i don't deserve to think of bettering it. I am still in the process of bringing the bike at par to stock but someday i am sure i will make it happen.

    I recently had thought of starting a thread named "Modifications - the untold story". but now i believe that this thread is exactly what i wanted people to know. could you please start that thread?

    Every time i read of reviews of modified bikes, i feel sorry for them for not knowing what they are going into.
