    Default Wishlist for your Bike

    Tell us ten things you would like do to your bike and why
    Ok i'll go first..........
    1. 3M Paint and Body Detailing
      Why: Because it's been a long time since it had properly been detailed and would also like to buff off some scratches
    2. H.I.D Lo-Beam
      Why: Bad roads near my home, and also for night touring
    3. Bridgestone Battlax Sticky Compound Tyres
      Why: Believe me........ it's worth every paisa of it's whopping Rs.-14,000/- price tag
    4. Get a proper high quality (split) clip-on bars
      Why: Feel my bike would handle a little better with a wider bar
    5. Get 220's rear disc kit and alloy
      Why: Because bajaj should have given one for us
    6. Get K&N Air-filter
      Why: Same reason everybody goes for one, a bit of show and also a bit of go!
    7. Get a proper titanium custom end-can done for my 200
      Why: The stock one is simply heavy and unwieldy
    8. Paint the sub-frame and the grab-rails black
      Why: Would look uniform
    9. Get a 32mm carb for my 200
      Why: Performance
    10. Homogolate my bike for Track use
      Why: Do i need to...........
    Please post in the above format else the post will not be approved.

    Ten things I would Love to do in/ for my Karizma are:
    1. a bit broad Tubeless Tyres (both Front & Read)
    why: rear one needs a change and the front one had a puncture twice in a fortnight.
    2. An HID or Perhaps Nightbreaker
    why: I generally prefer riding at Nights, OnComing traffic Doesnot Know that they Have a Dip Switch too and if they knw, they would feel offended dipping their Blinding Head lights for a Motorcyclist! so a Light tht can atleast show me My way!
    3. A good Horn
    why: the stock is a shame!
    4. Rear Disc Brake
    why: Better grip during Showers,needs slightest of touch to work, definately works better then DRUM Brakes.
    5. Better Shock absorbers.
    why: stock ones are Good But I want a better/BUTTER ones
    6. Engine Kill switch
    why: Wud anytime prefer killing the engine with a switch then to use the key all time, is more helpful at times, lets u kill engine without removing ur hand from the handle.
    7. K&N Filters with Upjetting
    why: guess theres no Harm in asking for More from this Machine!
    8. Fuel Injectors.
    why: well, after driving Cars with a Carb and without a Carb(read MPFi) theres absolutely no 2nd thought about a bike with fuel injectors.
    9. factory Fitted GPS
    why: for someone like me..its an absolute essential, I go haywire in ChanakyaPuri Area too.
    10. A Cigrarrette Lighter
    why: Remember the battle I had to Fight to light up the matchstick after I was all drenched in rain on my leh trip, secondly it will double up as mobile charger and a POWER OUTLET, u never knw when u may need one!
    Its not about the BHP or the CC, its about one common religion called Biking!!!

    Save the Tigers! Only 1411 (excluding ME) are left!




    This is my entry in the blogging world!!

    Ten things I would Love to do in/ for my R15 are:
    1. 110 section tyres on front&130 rear.
    Why: Don't want it to be pointed out by people saying 'Everythings
    good, except the tyres'.
    2. Black Powder coating for the wheel rims&engine cover&grab rail
    Why: The paint is chipping off.
    3. Tyre hugger for the rear
    Why: The mud flies all over the chain cover, silencer, including the rear
    body&its really tough to clean.
    4. LED taillamp
    Why: Can't really imagine a sportsbike without a LED tail. Even most
    Indian bikes get it these days.
    5. Splitseat
    Why: Can't really imagine a sportsbike without a splitseat.
    6. Crash bobbins like on the R1
    Why: Protection when the bike falls.
    7. HID headlamps
    Why: Better visibility in the night/ poorly lit driving conditions.
    8. Tinted Visor (Bubble Screen)
    Why: Enhanced visual appeal
    9. Front indicator mirrors
    Why: Enhanced visual appeal.
    10. Centerstand
    Its very much needed for Indian conditions!

    Bullet Machismo 500LB,

    Goldstar Silencer
    K&N R1100 free flow air filter
    Carb Upjet/VM32 carb
    Rocker mods
    HID kit
    Low height handlebar
    MRF Meteor tyres
    God willing, I hope to make these changes in the next six months

    At a later stage, a 535 big bore kit with engine blueprinting and maybe some more serious performance mods. Now that would be wicked.
