    Hi,

    Finally, after a very very long time , i am back to xBHP !! But then its completely changed since i last visited it. This appears absolutely cool .... Guys have done an excellent polishing work... xBHP ROCKS man !!!!
    Actually all these days i was busy with my new 150-DTSi (Have the new Bajaj logo on it.)

    Now on the stats :

    Odo Reads : 2090.
    Average : 57-60 KMPL
    Fuel : Unleaded (Will now be trying Speed 93.)

    I had a few question regarding the run-in, before which i would like to summarize the run-in period.

    0-500 -> Did take nice care to stick to the Pulsar Manual, following
    the gear and speeds mentioned in it.
    501-1000 -> Started to open up, only at higher gears slowly.
    1000-1500-> More of Opening at all level of gears.

    I find that in the 60-65 region the bike is running very smooth, just need to feel to be able to explain, it starts at above 70 kmph, where i start to get the vibrations. Can someone explain this ???

    Apart from this, i found that the rear tyre skids on braking ? Did anyone else feel it, i also feel there is a ply in the rear wheel, especially at turns, but the service personnel says there is nothing wrong ...!!! [?]

    Finally , i have a wrist-pain (any one else does ??? ), need to change the position of the handle, or change the handle. I do not have grips put in place, will adding grips help .. I know one of my friends riding 180-DTSi visiting the doc with the wrist pain and he had grips put on the bar....

    Guys .. I'm waiting for your comments ...

    All the credit goes to sunny, as abt ur queries i'll try to answer some of them
    -> there is arnge near 70 whr bike feels shaky but that will go away after the runin period if it doesn't go after 2nd service tell it to the service station
    -> depends on how u brake, u must brake in ratio of 70:30 i.e. 70% front brake & 30% rear brake
    -> if ur riding a heavy bike( guys its heavy if u compare it to splendors & scooters) then it does makes ur wrist ache, my right hand acehd for 2 full days after i bought my 180 DTSi as i was previously riding a baja sccoter.

    I hope this helps

    Definitely , Cheers to SUNNY, Like's definitely become BRIGHTER (Shining sunny ).

    Agreed that the wrist pain is due to the fact that it needs to be whipped often when you are riding , and is similar to the who gets the pain when he starts to workout

    Brake ratio was not what you mentioned , but approximately the other way round 60:40::REAR:FRONT, fine but could you explain this with some more rigor.

    Did anyone experience knocking at high engine rpm's idle state, i noticed this when i opened the throttle at idle and the engine seemed to be hesitating at 90 KMPH speed, any comments, suggestion ?

    Here in Bangalore the bikes takes in a lot of fine dust, can someone suggest a solution, coz cleaning with a soft cloth leads to scratching and the dirt is tough to remove.

    Looking forward to get enlightened.

    I guess so... but are you willing to spend 100 hrs just idling your bike at regular intervals? where's the fun in that?

    Apart from the fun factor, according to the manual, the bike has to be serviced at regular intervals based on the # of kms it has covered. It sure will be odd to go to the service centre with the odo showing zero and telling the guy that you wanna do your servicing.

    sk8er ruin in jus doent jus involve the engine..it involves all the moing parts in ur bike to set,for the bike to adapt to ur specific and unique style of riding..the gears to open up..an the gears to set to high and low speed...
    so jus ideling for whatever time is not going to help this cause..soo u have to go through the run-in if u want u bike to perform well in post run-in period..
