    Hey Barmer,

    I enquired about it about a month ago. The cost of mirror set is around 4.5k and the ASC simply discouraged me to put it on TB500.

    You know how these ppl are. They just dont want to evolve. Dont even dare to modify a bike.

    I want those Mag wheels. Can you share the make/model of them so that i can enquire in kolkata? Otherwise please share info of the dealer u bought them from. I will ask them for a catalogue.

    Also, I wanted to change the handle bar to something similar to Iron 883.

    Still searching...

    Cheers,
    Amit
    Best Regards,

    Amit

    Thanks Mate, Please let me know if the mirrors fit and post pics also.

    I will upgrade my wheels by sep. Also will replace the silencers to WB.

    Goodluck for the mirrors.

    Hi,
    just wanted some info about this....calling all Bullet purists for there inputs.
    NOTE: i didnt get the answer from CGT forum.


    Why are these here? i don't see a sari guard required for the CGT as its registers as single seater. (as told by dealer)
    is RE working on a new cruiser based on the CGT frame with dual sari guard as with the street 750 and others HD's...

    I found such on CBZ, CBR etc, might be for luggage mounting/ backrest mounting or some kind of accerries available abroad.. Also chassis of CGT is imported..

    Running in: 2988 KM

    After the service received at the RE service center (HSR) at Rajaji Nagar Industrial Estate, we decided to change over to a RE service center closer to home, CVS Motors Service center in palace Guttahalli seemed to fit the bill. The first thing we did notice was that though we started at 8 am to ensure we were first in line, this place did not open up until 8:30 am, there was no watchman or any caretaker even available to take in the bikes in an order or number them based on arrival, while we did arrive 4th our job cards were ready and put in the queue only after 8 or 9 bikes who had arrived much later.

    The issues to be addressed during this service were:
    1. Continual Oil Leakage (few drops during the night stop every time)
    2. Grinding noise when the rear disk brakes are used
    3. To many false neutral during gear changes
    4. Oil change & general service

    While the promise was to get the bike completed and ready to be delivered by 2 PM, there was a heavy back log of bikes from the previous day and at 1 PM they had not even started with Baloo. It took quite a while of convincing the mechanic to start on the bike while I waited for the delivery; the issues that were going to be worked on were the false neutral, oil leakage and the grinding noise on the breaks along with the general service. While these issues were being attended the waiting room seemed quite comfortable to lounge in, at the end the bike was completed and handed over at 5 PM which a bill of additional cost for polishing only when I pointed out the bike was a stone black and dint require polishing it was said that this would be adjusted in the next bill.

    Baloo’s few niggles continue:
    Date: 27th June 2014

    Post the second service the oil spills continued to show up in all the parking spots where Baloo would stand to rest, the next day a ride to the service center told me that they needed a short visit from Baloo to try something else to get this fixed, the date was pushed to the next Monday as there were packed and over loaded with bikes.
    On 30th we started late morning at 11:00 am to the service center, it was only almost an hour later when the mechanic was able to take a look at Baloo, he now tried fixing the right hand side kicker cover to stop oil leaks, he used a sealant to close all leaks and while this did take a good hour to fix, it finally was the solution to the issue and now Baloo has no oil spills at any spot where its parked.

    CVS are the worst in Bangalore. I shifted from CVS to Sai Ram autocraft. Good service and they fix the all the problems mentioned in job card

    Icon6 Re: 2014 Enfield Thunderbird 500 - My Entry into the Motorcycle World

    Read this entire thread from start to the end, siphoning information as and how i needed. Learnt of many new items available as accessories for TB. Though not new to xBhp, i have sat out most of the action in my garage rather than had been out on the road. However this thread needs to be Re-energized. All the bullet owners here must have really grown into their bikes.

    It will be an overhaul of long term ownership reviews if they pour it out . What say!?

    Default Re: 2014 Enfield Thunderbird 500 - My Entry into the Motorcycle World

    Hi All,

    Have booked a TBTS 500 - Stone last week in Faridabad NCR. Waiting for delivery now...I was originally very very confused between the Classic 500 and the TBTS 500 but finally made the decision. (The fact that I am 6'3 and close to a 100kg helped!). I am trying to draw up a list of the following:

    1) Accessories that I can buy
    2) Paint protection for the stone - options in and around Delhi
    3) Crash guard - black or chrome
    4) Silencer - I have come across a few references regarding another silencer that RE had introduced for the TB500 in the auto expo. I have written to RE consumer care but still have not got a revert from them. (Does changing the stock silencer affect the engine to a very great extent??)
    5) what kind of riding gear to buy - saddle bags, gloves and a jacket - the bike is not for commuting and I might not take very frequent trips (but a few are definitely on the agenda)

    Any information on any of these points will be really helpful!

    Also, I am new to the forum - was thinking of starting a small ownership account once I get the bike - is this the right place to do this?


    Thanks
    JK
