  • mods for hunk

    hey guys,
    i am new to xbhp!
    i own a hunk which is one year old and has run 10 k!
    now i am looking to purchase a filter and a spark plug to improve the performance.
    i was thinking about K&N r1100 and NGK or BOSCH plugs...
    someone suggested UNI filter to me...
    which brands do i look at and where in bangalore will i find shops for them??
    is there anything else which needs to be done??
    please reply asap!!

      by NGK- if you mean NGK irridium-- you won't get any significant performance increase.

      K&N filter will give performance increase only after rejetting.

          u can go for a knn air filter and rejetting

          but you wont really be getting any major performance increase by this.....it will e more of a psychological thing.......

          if u really want a performance increase go for a good port and polish job with a bigger engine bore and maybe a freeflow exhaust....

            BUDDY, SELL OFF YOUR BIKE AND GET A CBR 250 IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR POWER

            below is the list of mods that i have done on my 2007 hunk. its done 35000 kms with the below mods:
            1) K&N r1100
            2) pulser 200 carb with custom porting job and 140 size jets.
            3) compression increased by machining the block by 0.5 mm (dont know the exct value of the compresion ratio.
            4) exhaust port polishing.
            5) oil cooler - from pulser 200

            I did not measure the power I was getting but in one drag with my friend's p180, i won by nearly 3 bikes length.

            after running the bike with the above mods, following were the after effects:-


            1) piston rings had to be changed after 10000 kms
            2) intake and exhaust valves busted after 15000 kms
            3) spark plug melted and head casing replaced due to over heating of engine
            4) block piston is nearly busted and is due for replacement shortly.
            5) engine oil is near the empty level after every 2000 kms. i need to top up after every 500 kms to ensure i am not running the engine without oil.

            This is when i take outmost care of the bike, i dont stunt at all. the bike is used only for touring purposes.

            its up to you weather you want to modify the bike or not...
            btw, if you are wondering, I have gone back to the stock condition again since most of the above mods did not last long without problems.


            PS: i did not sell my bike since it is my frst bike and i will never ever sell it off. hence If i want the bike forever, It has to be in stock form. any modifications that you will go for wont last for long unless you are spending sleepless nights one every detail of your mod. I have burnt my hands on this one hence recomend you not to do the same mistake

              @rockers: its my first bike too... but i cant really buy a new one yet... its just a year old...
              and i really want a little power increase... it crossed my mind too to buy a new cbr250r but my hunk is still young... thats why i was looking at mods instead of a new cbr250r...

              @revvhard: i have heard that knn and ngk iridium will each give performance increase of 8% to 10%. is this false information

                Completely false,even after K&N and correct jet sizes ,you may get an increase of 0.3-0.5hp. and iridium wont increase power,it increase mileage @ high speed riding conditions and decreases mileage in city riding.

                  Actually, these honda engines are not well suited for this kinda performance upgrades. Its best to keep them in stock to extract maximum performance.('ROCKRZ' reply proves this.) Engines like those of apache rtr's are more suited for these performance mods. I mean, even if you go for these mods, there might be some increment in performance but the overall gains won't be much & on top of that you would be losing the reliability for which honda engines are well known.

                    most probably not going to change anything then.
                    what about the rear tyre? mine has become bald.
                    which brand and model to look at?
                    and can i fit a different size?

                        Happy to see Hunk Lovers
                        Well my 2009 Hunk Limited Edition is my first bike but the hunger for power made me buy the CBR 250R
                        I am the proud owner of both
                        Wont ever sell off Hunk as it is my first bike and I will never do any mods on any of my bikes as its useless and worthless
                        Stock bikes are the best
                        I feel like Peter Parker when I drive my Hunk in the city but I become Spiderman when I am on my CBR swinging from one lane to the other on expressways.

                        My Stable:
                        2009 & Present: HH Hunk Limited Edition [Red Striker]
                        2011 & Present: Honda CBR 250R [Black Blade]

                              you can use the pirelli scorpion - its actually an semi offroad tyre for sbk. you wil not get the rear tyre of the size that fits to the hunk. ask for the front type of 110/90 - 18" and use it as the rear tyre...

                              advantages? since its a front tyre, its softer compound than normal semi offroad types. the tyre has phenomenal grip. the life is short though... mine lasted only for 15000 kms but still has a lot of grip.

                              you can also use michelin sirac. one of the best compromises in tyre life and grip
