    do'nt go for K&N considering the price of it and the extra stress the engine is going to take afterwards.when you allow more air to enter the engine you should also increase the petrol intake also by replacing the stock carb jet with a bigger one. unless you do that you will overheat the engine and melt it !! also, jetting is a very complicated issue, better you enjoy her stock....

    Thnaks a lot Satish for that Valuable piece of info.
    I'm definitely gonna drop that idea and stick to the stock..
    thanks...
    BTW can u suggest how to get a bright beam from the headlight, my stock light gives negligible brightness. I changed the reflector but it was of no use. will changing the light itself do the trick? whick headlight assembly should i go for?

    please help

    PERSEVERE... failure is not an option!

    ^^^Dude, was your old reflector showing any loss of reflectivity? Unless it was, how will changing the reflector to another of the same type make a difference?

    Changing the headlight assy. to that of another bike which is known to have better reflector should definitely improve things.

    Meanwhile did you try an ordinary bulb (not halogen)?

    I think the best what you can get is the beam from the thunderbird with a roadking dome and philips halogen 35/35W

    the problem with the RX assembly is poor quality of the beam and the local bulbs. beleive me if you can get the original japanese stanley bulb it will give much more light than the desi halogens....my 2 cents

    What is this Stanley bulb? Is it a brand? Made in Japan stuff? Is it an ordinary tungsten filament bulb?

    Any idea if this can be fixed in the Shogun's bulb holder?

    I tried Halonix, Phillips, Osram and MICO on my stock Shogun reflector. The Osram (Made in PRC) is the brightest. Thats relatively speaking... the light output is not at all sufficient in any case. These were halogen bulbs, of course.

    ^^^Thanks dude! Will check it out. Any idea if they can be put on the Shogun/Samurai holders? Out of the 3 shops I asked, only one said he had them... but the guy said it will only fit Hero Hondas.
