    Sure, will keep that in mind!

      What about MITSUBA ? electric starters etc. where are they made?

        I agree about the R15 though, The vast difference in character between these 2 150s is what makes me love the Fiero F2 so much! I love its raw, no nonsense appeal.
        Look yaar ,the bike's engineering was done by the same team which developed the Honda MotoGP bike RCV5 1000.Unicorn was the first bike in india to come with roller cam followers,it's compact and is so refined without having a balancer shaft because of the off-set crank design.The whole engine and gb is a example of HONDA engineering at work.
        It's not about the technologies alone that is used in a bike which decides how well it's engineered,it's about how well the limited technology in it is made to work,which decides the engineering excellence in a bike.
        It can't take the kind of modifications that our fiero or RTR can take because it's not over engineered.That is it was made with 150cc in mind, were as our fiero was over-engineered to take modifications/tuning.

          My dear BHPians. sorry for not updating all this while. all of a sudden after a regular oil change, my 02' fiero started making some whining noises while speeding up. the mech said it has to be the clutch pressure plate. so had kept the bike with him for a day. he said, since my clutch plate has worn out, its better to replace that as well. so the following day he replaced only the clutch plate without the pressure plate saying it shouldnt make any difference. the bike doesnt feel the same. previously i could easily engage the 1st gear while de-clutching and raise the throttle to move. but now. as soon as i engage the 1st gear, the bike gives a jolt and stops. so the only way to move ahead is my raising the throttle way more while de clutching and then slowly engaging the clutch. do u think its coz of the worn out pressure plate?
          The way you have described it,i think the mech has made half-clutch.That is only half clutch movement is needed to move and change gears and you can make it out by noticing whether the clutch lever becomes slack after half it's movement range.The whining you heard ,seems similar to what happens when the cam chain tensioner is made too tight,or at least cam chain follower is the one which usually causes the whining noise.

            Yup it's another reason for the fiero longevity.

              Going from Honda Unicorn ,probably the best engineered bike in india barring R15,it will be quite a new experience for you.Going from one extreme to the other(i am not talking about performance here) .
              Yes,i do know its a well engineered bike,but as sarvajit said its good for cities.My working hours are mornings to late nights(projects),with am average riding of 100 km/day.I need a bike with good headlights,moreover i need a good tourer and i cant afford the r15 or the zmr.I have owned a pulsar 150 dtsi from 2003 to 2007,so am aware of the pulsartraumas.

              • i dont think any 150cc bike currently sold in India would be as rugged as the Fieros!! lets take the oil change intervals for example. i have so so many times crossed the 5k oil change interval limit as per the owners and i dont even feel there is any drop in performance or milage. in case of the pulsar's (old and new models) the change interval is quoted to be 2.2k!! my friend has a 2005 model pulsar, and the bike has been troubling him so much that he wants to sell it off.

                I myself dont give my bike for servicing. I only go there for an oil and oil filter change. on wed i would go for an oil change since it has overshot the 5k mark!! i dont maintain my bike like cleaning it everyday with cloth or giving it for washing. still none of my friends believe that its a 7yr old bike!

                I always use the choke whenever i am starting the bike for the first time in the day. be it summer, rainy or winter. i keep the choke on for like 15secs and then idle it for another 15secs!! This is my way of keeping my bike maintained!

                    Fieros are indeed extremely rugged and reliable bikes.

                      • Guys! My Fiero makes a sort of tik tik tik sound from around the engine area towards the gear / front sprocket while dragging the bike (noticeable more when dragging the bike backwards) - when engine is turned off. I wonder what the problem is. It does not feel as if anything is wrong while riding and the sound is not loud enough to be heard over the engine roar. Any idea what it could be?

                        • I think this problem which you are facing has already been discussed. its because your chain may have become TIGHT, and that's why the sound. go to your SVC and tell the mechanic to loosen the chain. get it done asap as the sound may get louder. its a very common problem with this bike. i have experienced it many a times!

                            I think your front sprocket is worn,an inspection of the teeth will show you. Alternately,inspect the chain while you rotate the back wheel..first in forward direction...then in reverse direction.The amount of change in the chain tightness and run out,in reverse rotation, indicates the sprocket wear.

                            • Hi to all Fieros!

                              Let me introduce myself to you all. I'm a 2stroker owning an old 98 model RX135. Since the RXs came out with drum brakes, would like to change brakes to disc set up. We had extensively discussed in 2 stroke threads about disc set up mods on RX. We heard RTR has a good disc brakes and add to it, it is widely in production right now. For plonking the disc on to RX, RTR disc will not be a direct plug and play. It was discussed, tried and tested that for having RTR disc set up one has to first have Fiero 2 hub which came with discs, is good option to plonk RTR disc set up.

                              I have good idea about RX spares situation however have zilch knowledge about Suzuki/TVS parts current scenario. I have heard from my friends in my city that Fiero 2 spares are hard to come and the front wheel hub is one of them.

                              The reason why I have posted on this thread is that, you guys should be discussing day in day out about restoration, spares availability and few contacts to get the spares for the Fieros.

                              If anyone could help me with Fiero 2 front wheel hub would be highly appreciated. Over the years I have learnt that few things to come our way could test our patience, so even if this is going to take some time for you to let me know is understandable.

                                I am using pulsar's disk brake set up and i'll ask ZEN TVS if this hub and adapter can take the RTR's disc ,if it's possible then i'll let you know .Then you can find a pulsar's hub and adapter set up which should be easy to source.
                                I was wondering ,since you own a unicorn ,ever checked whether it can take the RTR's disc?
