    Thumbs up Share Your Creativity (Bike Modification)

    i have done some simple cosmetic modifications on my P180. My P180 is April 06 model and is just 40km short of 40K mark.

    List of modifications done includes:
    1. Changed front and rear alloys. rear is now 15" and front 16".
    2. changed front and rear tyres. both are tubeless and broader. rear is 130/90 and front is 100/80.
    3. Changed seat to 2 piece like P200.
    4. Racing stripes similar to Apache RTR.
    5. Side indicators of honda Stunner
    6. open chain cover to accomodate broader rear tyre.
    7. headlamp assembly of new pulsars with white headlamp.
    8. Rear grab rail of P200.
    9. Rear view mirrors of Apache RTR.
    10. Parking light circuit.
    11. red paint of rear shock springs, front disk pad holder and foot peg holder.
    12. Laquer coating.

    All comments/advices/ideas are welcome.

    i will post some more pics as soon as this post gets approved.

    @sijusid: And how do you feel about the ride quality and specially the handling, now that you have changed the OEM tyres with those behemoths?? Kindly share the ride-experience as well. That would help those who are contemplating these kind of mods on their machines.

    @blackprince: You mentioned that you've replaced the 'main-stand' as the previous one was faulty. Could you please elaborate on that a little, as in, what did you mean when you say 'faulty'..

    black alloys would have done more justice to your bike as your's is a "fear the black" version

    Handling has improved a lot. the tyres have excellent grip. way better than my previous MRF zapper. it performs better in both wet and muddy roads. by the way, the brand name of tyre is "SM tyres" and they are imported from malaysis. I was getting same sized tyre (but with tubes) of MRF zapper for 1500 less, but i think i made a better decision by buying this.

    As i changed the rim also, i had to change the sprocket. i dont know the exact details about the sprocket, but i can surely say that there is no noticable drop in pickup, but yes , there is a marginal drop in mileage.

    The alloys which i have used on my bike was not availble in black. i had the option of painting it black, but the finish would not have been there. i may though, powder coat it in future. If i do, i will surely post the pic.


    i have also created an album showing the modification in detail. check out
