    But what? From what I can see, you guys have only mentioned the K&N Air Filter that might actually improve performance a bit. Please feel free to suggest stuff. I’m getting my bike delivered on Friday.

    @undefineme3,
    Thanks, man, for shattering my dreams. I don’t have that kind of money. Everything sounds friggin’ expensive. I was hoping to get everything done under Rs. 15,000 now (without the fairing and all to add to the expenses). I might have to sacrifice the rear disk brake, which I really do not want to. I can easily sacrifice the sporty mirrors though.

    Thanks though. I was just kidding about the “shattering my dreams” part. That was a very helpful reply.

    My name is Aayush, and yes, I am “aryayush” from everywhere else on the Internet, including the Digit Forum. Are you one of the older members of the Digit forum?

    Would suggest you to use that 20k as Down payment and get a new bike. I won't suggest you to go for so much of mods in the old horse. You can't change the character of the bike, which is of first gen.

    I too have a P150 Classic. The engine has a character of its own. Love the engine for what it is. If you bring it up to specs, I guarantee you, it will bring a smile to your face every time you ride it. Functional mods like rear disc brake is ok. Please don't try to change the nature of the engine. K&N, custom exhausts are a big no no.

    Anyways, my 2 paisa.

    I see. So what mods would you recommend? I just want it to have excellent pickup and braking. And I want it to look brand new and awesome.

    As it is a old bike, I guess the engine will need an overhaul. Get it done properly. Rear disc from P220 is a good thing to do. This will mean newer 17 inch alloys too. Clipons as per your preference. I found P180UGIII handlebar sporty enough for me. Tyres, keep the front one stock, and for the rear one, don't go above 100/90 size.

    Do these first. Other mods can come afterwise. And, no k&n, custom exhausts, silly cosmetic mods etc please.

    Thank you. What are clip-ons useful for, exactly? And how do I get the engine overhauled?

    Clipons will lower your handle height. This gives a sporty riding position. But, more pressure is felt on the wrist. If you like the position, go for it.

    Thanks. I might get them. Are they cheap? Also, do alloy wheels have any significant advantage over spoked ones? How much do they cost?

    I bought an ABS today for my front disk brake and also Motul engine oil. I now intend to put a KRP exhaust charger that apparently gives it better pickup and 5 KMph more on the top end. I’ll also be putting in a K&N Air Filter. I know the bike has a good engine but I don’t think an air filter and an exhaust will do any damage to the engine. Are these sensible mods? I have very little information about bikes and am therefore trying to take each step very carefully.

    I also want to buy a helmet. I wear glasses so I was looking at those flip-up style things. I can get one from Studds for about a thousand bucks. Sounds good, right?

    Please let me know. Thanks.
