    Wow, your fuel efficiency is like that of the R1. Oh, that feeling of kicking the Bullet every morning. Keep kicking keep kicking keep kicking. I have done it for over 2.5L kilometres! Which is why I have calves like Arnold!!!

    With the temperatures dropping you may need to use the choke to start the bike every morning. The low mileage can be due to a variety of reasons from a slipping clutch, spark plug, work chain/sprockets, engine condition and so on...only a decent mechanic can help you out.

    Avoid the "specialists" and find the real-deal. It isn't rocket science and if you have the time/tools/patience you should be able to identify the problem yourself...

    i dont know why do people really think that the bullet starts with all those so many kicks. if every thing is fine with the bullet and its on the points it take 2 kicks for it to start.

    and regarding your problem you spend 15 K on the bike to repair just take it back to the mechanic and get it checked. if you want to do it your self then just check the plug and the points

    Mine starts on 1st kick !!!

    I think Nandan is best in Bangalore, thou i ve never got it done from him. I get the work done in Mysore and the mech has done appreciable job. Earlier had given it some mech (forgot name). He had royally screwed the engine

    for sorting out starting problems-
    check the spark plug and clean the spark plug and check gap....
    also check battery water and battery connection terminals for rust .....
