    Hi shahbaz63, I do have a query/issue I am not sure what. Whenever I ride the bike, there is some krr sound from the front. It comes when the bike vibrates, and sounds like some part is loose. I took the bike to the service center and they said it is the fairing and suggested that they tightened it. However, the sound is still there I am new to Apache, so I am wondering if the sound should be there? If not, what can be the possible reason?

    Also, another question I have is that when I ride above 60kmph, the moment I release the accelerator or reduce the acceleration to reduce the speed, there is a kach sound at the bottom, which is more like the sound that comes when the bike goes through a pot hole. I informed the service center about this too but just like any service center, they did not fix the problem.

    Can you please help?

    Can someone please confirm if old model of RTR 180 ABS is still in production?
    My dealer said old Apache model is available only with non-ABS RTRs. I do not want to blindly believe dealers, they will say anything to clear their existing stock

    Guys am planning to change my sparkplug to NGK iridium. As I searched the ngk website they say CR7EIX is for apache rtr. Wen I tried to buy it online I could only see NGKITA 16 available. And I check the forums and could find only the 160FI guys are using it.
    Are both same?? Can v use NGKITA 16 in 180??

    Iridium plugs on a stock bike wont give you any noticeable bump in performance, I would suggest you stick with stock.
    And the price is also not justified.

    Its jus a starting step mate am also changing the ignition cable and later for the filter. Jus to make sure its not a fake am trying to get it from a trusted online dealer. If NGKITA 16 and CR7EIX are not same den I hav to order from amazon.com which takes arnd 10 working for delivery.

    Iridium+Spitfire+FreeFlow => Will give you a very minor bump in performance but at the cost of money and reliability. The choice is yours, In my ZMA I ran on Iridiums and free flow filter and 140mains. The bike was more rev friendly and made power even post redline, but thats cause ZMA had alot of torque and by stock makes power only till 7~8k RPM.
    In the case of RTR the bike already has good top end performance. So I would suggest that you let it be.

    And regarding the SP you've mentioned, I couldnt find it on google. As long as the heat range is same, It would workout.

    I joined xBHP and realized that there is no ownership thread for the beast. Hence, I am creating this thread and calling all the owners of TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS to share their experiences.

    My experience so far has been great, although I still have not completed the running in period.

    My first ride on the bike was till Lonavala this past Sunday (November 25, 2012) and I only have one thought, if the bike is so much fun to ride within the running in period limit, what will it unleash when I ride it to it's full power

    Here are two photos of me and the bike, and the bike royally parked at Lion's point Lonavala.

    Attachment 87135Attachment 87141

    My bike will go for the first servicing this week, and then I plan to take the beast for a long ride. I will post the pictures and share my experiences about that later.
    love the bike and your riding jacket! your helmet too! planning to get this as my first bike. worth it for becoming a better rider?
