  • which handle-bar and mods for my unicorn?

    i have a honda unicorn.i need to do some basic modifications in my unicorn. my basic necessity is changing the handle-bar.the stock handle-bar provided by the company is uncomfortable for me.
    I have seen a unicorn with another bike's handle-bar. I asked the author of that post about the handlebar,but i have not yet recieved a reply.

    i would like to know which handle bar can be used in my unicorn.? i require a short handle bar like the one in pulsar?

    One more doubt.i have seen the photo of a unicorn modified by Pranav Nalleri. i would like to know about the tyres used in his unicorn.
    Can i fit wide tyres like the one used by him or the one found in sports bike to be installed in the stock alloy wheel of honda unicorn?

    nb:- 'stock' means the default parts supplied by the company.

      UNI is good commuter and if u still loves to modify it --- there are ways.....

      Go for the P150UG3 handle bar--- they fit well on UNI and provides u a lean seating....U can have a bigger tyre ---- Pirelli or MRF 120 will do the job....But u may loose the initial Pickup and handling may be not the same of stock conditions....

      Lost but not the least AFAIK modifying UNI will purely damage its image .....

          K&N filter will give you a small boost in power and pickup.

          Unless you go for low profile tyres (reduce overall tyre weight) like the FZ you may not have a loss of pickup or power.

          But ideally why would you want to modify a Unicorn?? The bike looks good in stock condition..

                  use a rear tyre 110\80 it won't reduce ur pick-up /mileage, bt will improve d grip , n luks.
                  If dats nt fat enough den use 120\80 tubeless (mrf zapper C ).Reducing d wieght of d tube will prevent decrease in pick-up
                  Due to d V-shape of zapper C , the contact surface of the tyre is less when standing perpendicular to d road hence not much rise in grip , but will luk gud and will provide better cornering and leanng ability due to d v- shape.
                  The Automotive batteries are designed to work best in a typical short start-stop fashion.
                  So to increase the life of your automobile battery, blow the horn and flash the pass light in a quick start stop fashion instead of a conitnuous long horn blow or flash light continuous on!!
                  And obviously don't stretch the self start far too long.

                    I have a 120x80-16 Dunlop Tyre in my Uni and it does increase the Initials and reduced the Top end for 5Kms.
                    How about clipons for your Uni - Check the one on my Uni -

                          @roshan .... i would suggest to go for pulsar ug3 handlebar .. its short .. handling is good in hills as well as city riding.. dont go for a rear more than 110/70 .. thats the best for uni..

                            wid dat 16" tyre rim u're nt only hurting ur top speeg but also handling and stability and the most important factor i.e. d confidence to throw d bike into corners. however if ur increasing d tyre sidewall 2" extra den normal size , den u will get back ur handling nd stability + better suspension due extra cushion(decompression scope) provided by 2" extra sidewall.
                            neways cn i c dose clips of ur uni(what's clipons?)
