    @ all

    Hi guys,

    Just popped over here to confirm. The old T'bird has a BS26 CV carb right?
    Is it the same one that is on Pulsars and Fieros? Or is there any diff?

    Thanks in advance.
    Ride it like you stole it! But buy your own helmet.

The most prominent of these being the bigger, better, air tight resonator box. Reason: older electras have had damaged piston valves because of the faulty resonator box they came with. This is a slide mechanism within the carburettor. And RE has once again done nothing to help the bikes with the defect in the field upgrade. If you are an owner of an older Electra, suggest you ask your RE workshop guy to change it for you.
    During the last service I had told the engineers that I am having issues with mileage. They have changed the resonator box- a field upgrade free of cost (on inquiring they have told me that it is an instruction from HQ). I have yet to check my milage after this but overall the performance seems to have improved.
    Also during my last service I had changed my chain sprocket (after clocking 20,000 KM). The reason they told of the wear is improper chain tightening intervals and lack of lubrication.

    hey guys, I may be receiving my Bullet Electra 350 in two weeks time now. Would want guidance from someone on how to do the run-in properly and other things that I need to pay attention as this is my First bike.

    Thanks.

    [The first 2k kms try not exceeding 60, after that ride it like you'd ride a jap bike, during the rains be cautious the water doesnt seep in the tank or the ignition system, causes the bike to stutter, keep the open chain lubricated, keep your bike clean as more than the chrome, the painted parts ,especially under the seat are prone to rust.upgrade to a higher wattage bulb, and if like me,ur bike has the beam too high..god help you..coz they could never find any mechanism to pull it down.carry a spare clutch cable if u intend to ride long distances.and most importantly..have fun

    Do you have any tips/tricks i can follow to achieve that?

    causes the bike to stutter, keep the open chain lubricated, keep your bike clean as more than the chrome, the painted parts ,especially under the seat are prone to rust
    Any particular solutions you use to keep the chain lubricated?, how often (in time or Kms) do we lubricate the chain? And i plan to use a coconut oil mixture as a water repellent, have u used it before?

    .upgrade to a higher wattage bulb
    yes i have requested the showroom guys to upgrade the bulb at the time of delivery of the bike

    , and if like me,ur bike has the beam too high..god help you..coz they could never find any mechanism to pull it down.
    Thanks alot for this particualr info. I shall make a point to check this out while taking the delivery of that bike.

    carry a spare clutch cable if u intend to ride long distances.and most importantly..have fun
    Thanks for all the above information that you have provided. Everything precise and necessary.
    Also, would you suggest a particular bike helmet that might go well with My Silver Electra. My budget is 3K.

    Where do you stay in Bomaby? I'm at Mulund.
