    I've been happily rocking many "Champion Power P-RG7C" over the years. Saw the "Bosch R6 Super" spark plug on my pal's F2. Anyone here used it? Do post feedback. My friend thinks it's fine. He commutes daily.

      Nothing like NGK and in particular the Iridium ones.I've used it and found it to be too hot.

        That's good to know info. Got the valve clearances set a week back or so. Hope I get time soon to post some pix here for all to see/learn/comment

            The rear on my avatar would be a Ceat Secura Sport 3.00 X 18 "Vertigo". Nice piece for on/off use. Even MRF Moto-C and Moto-D are good ones. U may know already

              People who plan to go to leh on a bike, do a Mumbai - Goa once and its all the practice they need.
              Even touching 90 once is a biggest feat and this guy was averaging around 100 ???
              No comments about the average speed part.
              But on NH17, last time I rode for more than 50 km's (I think a couple of years back), it was a beautiful section of road. Yes, traffic is like typical 2 lane road but the road condition is not at all as bad as what one gets in Ladakh. May be I need to ride on NH17 soon.
              Oh and last time I rode, there were many curves that we took at 90+ speeds.

                When i first saw your avatar, i thought it was 120/80 tire.. And regarding the spark plug, i guess you are talking about r6 twin electrode.. Its a good choice and cheap.. It is always better to replace cheaper plugs frequently than using a costly long lasting plug.. Its just like engine oil.. replace the cheaper oil twice or the long lasting costly ones once and you know which will contain more carbon deposits..

                    Yeah, my pal thought it was a fatter-that-usual tyre too till he read the specs on the sidewall. The rim is stock Actually, now I'm on the NGK CR7E. The Bosch is for standy test. It is a single prong no double prongs for me yet. True what u said about oil. However, I'm on Motul 3000 4T Plus 15W50. N u?

                      Hey guys. Besides the P150s, is the old RE T'bird's carb a good fit for the Fiero/F2/Fx? Think that was a CV BS26 too. Just wanna confirm

                          yeah.. It is a good fit, but refer to the jet sizes.. The UCE TBTS has BS29 with 140 jet.. Stock carb does well with stock engine..

                              Good pics.Doesn't the carb have a secondary diaphragm? Stock fiero's carb comes with one.

                              • 8yrs., 58K kms.&a much needed service!

                                @All: My Fiero F2 completed 8yrs. on 13th March&I gave her the much needed service after more than a year!
                                Parts replaced were: Fork inner tubes, oil seals, springs, coneset (courtesy Anand&Abhi), Camchain, tensioner, guide, clutch plates, metal plates, friction plates, springs, wheel bearings, head valves, oil seals, both switch assemblies, side stand, disc plate, drum liner&of course some gaskets, oil seals etc.
                                The bike feels smooth like earlier now, I'm riding her under 60kmph so that the valves settle down.
                                Had to get a petrol lock coz my mothafu*^in' watchman decided to slit the fuel pipe with a blade to keep his rickety KiHo running!
                                Funny thing is the RHS switch assembly has come with a manufacturing defect&it works reverse like the Pulsars!
                                And the front suspension was responding perfectly after changing the fork inner parts, but is suddenly going all loose after the coneset replacement during service. Will take her back to the fork mechanic-hope it's minor.
                                Front brake pads (replaced outside before service) are squeaking a lot.
                                Bike is wobbling when I ride solo, but not with a pillion. I donno whether it's due to the Sirac Street tyre or swingarm bush gone bad. I had bought one, but the servicing took all day, so will get it done next time.
                                Good news is that, the engine drank only 100ml. of oil in about a year's time, so engine is in good health.
                                Maybe the valves didn't need replacement as Anand said, but the mech. wanted to do it as we were anyway opening the head to replace the cam parts&moreover the valve clearances were never adjusted in its lifetime so I said ok. The head was done up at the lathe&with the oil seal replacement, the leakage is also gone.
                                Anyway, I have given the Yam a 10-15day rest&enjoying the good old days on the Fiero, hope you guys are doing the same!
                                This bike never gives up.
