    ROFL

    Then next,he'll make the gearing tall to compensate it ,what it does is ,with such a heavy wheel and fat tyre at the rear combined with tall gearing,his bike needs to be in the first 2 gears to pull anything!! So he ends up revving the nuts off the bike!! and then complains about poor mileage
    Well said. He assumes a lot. He sometimes can't even understand when torque comes into picture. He got the tall gearing for cruising on high but he does that hardly anytime.

      More importantly what you've done is give ideas to Abhi ,which is never a good thing.He'll be thinking of removing the tank scoops,in the hope that it will reduce weight of the bike and reduce the aerodynamic drag as well !!!! So that it improves the mileage !! He's a walking contradiction!! On the one hand he wants to put the fattest balloon tyre and the heaviest wheel available on his bike's rear.Then next,he'll make the gearing tall to compensate it ,what it does is ,with such a heavy wheel and fat tyre at the rear combined with tall gearing,his bike needs to be in the first 2 gears to pull anything!!

        Abhi seems to be on the right track with Fat rears and tall gearing on his ride...though he ends up revving nuts off the ride.

          Too good.. can't stop Laughing

          Well fact of the matter was or Is, I was so accustomed to Revvy nature of CBZ & I found Fiero's Initial torque to be too much to handle & I felt bike to be lazy as it gets.. so next thing I did is put a 1 tooth bigger GB sprocket & already my gearing was little taller with 100/90 tyre & it became more now & I simply M lovin it

          With 14t & 100/90 tyre, I found 80,85kmph Cruising is just like walk in park, while I dont know if it still is with stock set up

            You are right...after riding my Karizma on the highway, I now crave for more relaxed top end..thinking of P220 rear sprockets..
            It is the smoothness of the ride,which make us yearn for long and hard riding.

              Go with the P200's 38T. Its a proper compromise. But I am highly doubtful if the open chain length is suffice !! Even the P220's chain wont be sufficient I guess.

              @Abhi - Agreed that cruising is improved but how many times u cruise ?? Most of the time u end up revving. Get the mods according to your usage. Don't be greedy.

                I am on stock 13/40, so going to 38 , I will have EXTRA length in chain...will be changing the sprocket only so I guess it is ok ...The P200 Chain, on the ZMA will have two links short.

                  If you can source only the rear sprocket then please help me in getting one too

                    I am sorry to disturb on this sprocket discussion, but doesn't the P220 has O-ring type & Zma normal type & It is not possible to change only rear sprocket ?

                    & Yeah Shreeni - Rozi roti ke wajeh se I am not able to tour more,( no time & more Importantly money) If not things would have been different

                      Yeah you bet

                      P220,P200 and karizma all have 0.52 pitch chain...Only this and the Length determines compatibility

                        Until the chain pitch is same you can use any sprockets of similar pitch chain.

                        Sprockets are the same, only type of chain is different.

                          Thanks for Updating me, & I thought O-ring chains doesn't fit on to normal chain sprockets,

                                Let me get this right Fat and wide rears = excellent !!
                                Tall gearing = long legs ,once again perfect for long rides !!
                                If you had used,narrow waist and long black hair....... it would have completed the picture of the 'Ride' ? perhaps??
