  • Thanx for the confirmation Gixxer.

    Nice pix BTW V1gnesh.

    Congrats Sarvajit. A fine grade sandpaper can work wonders on squeaky disc pads. Plus, they add bite. Enjoying the new bike I'm sure
    Ride it like you stole it! But buy your own helmet.

      Good pics.Doesn't the carb have a secondary diaphragm? Stock fiero's carb comes with one.
      Thanks gixxer.. its a p150 carb and it doesn't have secondary diapragm.. Even apaches don't have them.. i'm planning to install this carb on a RX.. I hope it will work without the power box..

      @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.
      keep her revving bro.. She won't give up that easy..

          • Yesterday I bought another Fiero Classic just for Rs 4500 for camp use, it needs major engine overhaul so taking its crank, head etc for re-boring, lathe work to Dehradun. my mechanic has given me estimate of Rs 4500 for complete work including lights,and other body works

                yes, it is indeed. but the previous man was riding it without engine oil so piston was jam, new crank rod was needed.

                switch assembly right side Rs 543
                engine oil Rs 270
                one set yolk Rs 80

                TOTAL RS 3903
                now few more things are needed like tyres, new headlight front footrest rod etc. I hope it will come on Road with in budget of Rs 13000

                    Dear psr sir, I would loved to do it but there are constraints, firstly as our rafting and camping season is on so I am getting very less time for helicoptering the mech and work, secondly I am a lousy writer so hard for me to take such a endeavor

                    • hello guys.

                      Its been a very long time I've been inactive on the thread.
                      Now as my exams are over, I'd be indulged in here more frequently.

                      First and the foremost, i have given my bike to the mech, and there's bad news.
                      The engine was bone dry, even after topping up and replacing spark plug over and over again. It was basically coz my dad had been riding it frequently as i was busy with the exam all month.

                      The Cam rocker arms have gone bad
                      The piston rings, as well as the bore seems okay, but i think i might re-bore it, however my mech said that we don't get +1 sized piston in the rtr's !!
                      Is it true ?

                      Secondly, the right front fork needs to be changed, the spare part dealer quoted 1200 for a pair of locally made ones, and 2100 (single) for original with springs and bolt.

                      But i might pull it ahead, and do it later.
                      for now i am searching for a used RTR 180's head, if i don't find one within a week, i might as well have to buy a new one.

                      Any comments about what should be probably done are most welcome.
                      Giving a lot to a fiero.
                      Expecting a lot from a fiero.

                        if you find time then you can do the restoration thread...or else take pictures and post when you have free time..A picture is worth a thousand words...

                        Welcome back Nano....
                        Finding no engine oil in crank case is a sure indication of either leak or bore and piston wear out...this can also lead to wear of cam,rocker,and other moving parts which need constant lube flow...
                        Don't go for second hand bores as you won't know it's current status....or you are ready to take the risk and bore it ....which you might as well do in the current bore.
                        instead of looking for a replacement fork of Fiero I am sure other bike forks will be equally suitable..
                        Gixxer is the expert on all the above topics .

                        • Even when the re-bore was not needed, as it was checked last time, the problem still existed.
                          I think there's some problem with the cylinder head.

                          I am not looking out for a used bore, i already have a stock block piston kit and the 180's block piston kit with me.

                          What i was considering was a used head of an rtr 180, and maybe a rebore to +1 size for the current block.
                          If by any chance the +1 isn't possible, it doesn't seems sensible to invest on the new bore kit of the 180.
                          The mech says that we don't get +1 sized pistons in rtr 180's, is it true?

                          However the cam and the valves will need to be replaced, and the head enlargement thingy can also be a culprit, hence was thinking that a used cylinder head of the rtr would be an answer to the prolonged problems, and a re-bore would be a solution to the new problem.

                            If you want to run rtr's 62.5 mm piston, bore it in your stock fiero cylinder.. I have done that and re-sleeve is not required .. If you want to run +1 piston on ur RTR cylinder, bore it with CBZ std(63.5mm) or .25 piston.. Some slight changes had to be made to the piston and guess what, you'll be getting a CR of 12:1 .. This has to be done by a good lathe guy ..

                            Get apache 150's cam and rocker arms(Roller cam follower).. If u change it to RTR's head, u have to change a lot of things including head cover, rocker arms, valve guides, etc.. It will rob you..

                            i'm not sure with it either .. Go to a spare part dealer and enquire it yourself.. I'll ask my sources and conform as soon as possible...

                            If head enlargement is the reason for your fouling problem, then check your gasket thats been running for oil .. But the possibility is very low... The most possible reasons would be either valve seals or oil rings or both...

                              Crank work seems to be very low on price.. Make sure you get the original con rod.. Duplicate ones wear quite soon... TVS OE Timing chain costs around 400rs.. OE Cam shaft around 800 rs.. Be safe... Buy Original..

                              • Then i might consider re-bore with the cbz's piston...
                                However, i am skeptical about the head enlargement thingy, which has always caused a lot of problems.
                                That's why i am looking out for a used rtr's head.
