Then for the front RE logo it took one day. Bought the mercury glass for Rs.450. Then third day went to paint shop to collect the helmet, paint quality was good(had used a Maruti Alto maroon color).
    Time to take helmet and paste the graphics, tough job took 4 hours for cutting and pasting. Then next day again after graphic done took the helmet to paint shop for a final lacquer quote...Now kept two days to let the lacquer dry, now the glass fit and inner fitting was done. After completing when in the morning saw it , was very happy that finally the target was achieved.

    Now time was to wait for the delivery of the bike, was surprised to get the call from showroom a week prior from the commitment ...
    The above pictures are of my Previous Helmet when i had my Pulsar 220dtsi.

    Guys today I got a penture in the rear tyre of my classic.... as the tyre is mrf zapper so I took it straight to MRF Tyre showroom... there was a neil in the tyre... the tube has two hole... one a bit big and just below it one equal. To a small needle.... the showroom guy said its the tube can't be fixed as the two holes are parallel and one may leak soon so they would have to change it... I smelled something fishy but still I said go ahead


    I asked the price.. he replied its. 450 for tube + 60 service charges... I had read somewhere on xbhp that the tube of bullet costs 300 and I conveyed the same to him but he replied in 300 you get the splender tube not Bullet's... so I got the tube changed and took the old tube with me

    When coming back I showed the tube to old penture uncle near our home... he said "MRF shoeroom has noone to put the penture.. so they just sell the tube to everyone... this tube can easily pentured.. the charges he asked are 50 for big one and 25 for small"

    Now I am in a dillema that did MRF guys actually looted me...

    Please help

    Thanks

    Wow...that's quite an effort! I must say that helmet really reflects the effort and time you have invested. Special

    The Cost of tube can vary with respect to Brands or quality.

    I got my CL500 last month. I have ridden it 700km approx (500 km on highway).

    Exp with bike:
    +ves - Extremely good power, balance, stability and handling

    -ves - Seat and Rear view mirrors - Vibrates a lot and gives blurry image.

    Mods done:
    1 - Seat - very comfortable now.
    2 - Headlight - Philips Xtreme - better than stock
    3 - Engine oil changed to semi-synth

    Planning to change the handlebar to RD350 one.

    Having confidence is like having battle scars. A person knows youre a successful warrior if you have a lot of battle scars, yet are still alive.

    You just have to order from Khajanchi (find them on FB) and tell them that you want similar seat. I forgot to order the backrest and I have ordered that now. Also, you have to specify that it should be direct fit in the frame of CL500 seat frame.

    Seat is a nice combination of soft n hard foam.

    To be very honest, I was never a fan of the Classic look. I bought this bike because it has lots of chrome and power. Also, the stock seat was like u sitting on rock. I chose comfort over the look and acc to me it looks much better now.

    And, RE gives brown flat seat with black CL Chrome .
