    Please view the video I posted with engine sound, and kindly let me know if this a sound from a bad chain or a if a valve clearance might solve the problem. This video was recorded after a short ride so the engine is warm enough.

    Many Thanks!
    Agree to what Ashwin says. It sounds like timing chain or tensioner gone bad

    Finally got the stuck AFR screw out at the lathe. Replaced with a new one which I had stocked long back.
    Now the bike is revving freely without any hiccups and starting issues are gone. Name:  20190719_165237.jpg

    Hi All,

    I bought a used karizma r 2012 model about 5 months ago has run about 23k kms, I'm using this bike daily for commuting to work(24kms)and I love riding it. Below is the work done so far.

    1) Chain sprocket-Hero oe.
    2) Battery- Exide 7ah(Battery was good, it died since taillights were continuously on due to a faulty brake switch).
    3) Engine oil- Motul 3000,running shell ax7 10w 40 currently,
    4) Carb- Complete disassembly and cleaning.(Cleaned it myself since ocd kicked in, Mech said it was already clean , Found pilot jet was clogged now bike starts quickly and idle is steady).
    5) Tyres- Front Apollo Actizip F2 2.75-18 , Rear -Apollo Actizip R3 100/90-18.

    Now coming to the issues related to the bike.

    1) Bike vibrates crazy above 4k rpm, need to find source of this vibration, previous owner has removed stock handlebar weighs and installed unicorn handlebar ends. But foot pegs also vibrate so this can't be the only reason.
    2) Rear suspension is very hard due to this I think the rear fairing mounts have broken. Also need to check swing arm bushes along with this.
    3) Bike struggles to go above 80 kmph feels like engine is straining or lean. Kicker slides easily, Is the compression less?. Bike doesn't consume oil nor smokes.
    4) Speedometer glass(plastic) is broken.

    Will work on these issues once the weather clears up. Also have a few mods on mind.

    Below are the mentioned items i bought of second hand from bangalore's scrap yard aka 'gujri' in shivajinagar and some new ones

    1. ZMR right clutch case(second hand)
    2. pulsar 220 oil cooler(second hand) = 1500(inclusive of item 1 & 2)
    3.o rings= 45
    4. ZMR oil cooler pipes = 750
    5. p220 oil cooler pipes=500
    6. oil cooler hinges and oil cooler cutting and welding = 300
    7. labour chrges= 1500




    R&D and mods
    1. Had both the left and right clutch case powder coated to silver color as ZMR clutch case is some what golden color. Make sure you have it washed properly before giving out to powder coating my mechanic gave the oil plunged case as it is and the etching process was not carried out properly now the coating is peeling off.
    (suggest u keep it as it is wont make much difference)

    2. Buy a zmr oil cooler and not p220 as it wont give u an exact fit and as in my case had to install horizontally like p220 and caused impact issues with fender so had to rise the front fork by 1inch (additional cost not mentioned).go for vertical arrangement by welding a clamp and mounting the oil cooler vertically giving you better cooling. I couldnt as i had already installed crash gaurd and fog lamps. Also it will save u amount on p220 oil cooler pipes


    3. The zmr does not have kicker so had to cut the kicker shaft yet leave it engaged with gears as gears wont engage without this shaft and zmr clutch case does not have provision for its housing so here on ur bike will become kicker less.

    So after all the trial and error my bike looked something like shown in the attached images.

    PS. THIS PROJECT WAS DONE BY ME USING A SKILLED MECHANIC AT MY OWN RISK SO SHOULD ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DO THIS MODIFICATION ON HIS.

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----



    Hi there co-XBHPIAN i have already replied on this thread with images. Regarding your 09 R model i suggest you to a step by step engine flush using a good quality engine flush, then use a semi synthetic oil preferably shell ax7 10w40 for a try and a proper vehicle tune up from a skilled mechanic to reduce engine heat problems, roughness and vibration of engine if any before thinking of going for the mod.

    PS : I did this mod on my bike as i am a vivid motorcycle traveller and use my bike for long travells which involves the engine runnning at high rpm for a prolonged period.If you are travelling for short distances no need for this mod as karizma is detuned version of honda crf 230 and has proved its mettle internationally.
    Hi. I'm Abhilash.
    I am from bangalore. I would like to see more pictures of your Karizma R and how you have manged to replace the single centre down tube of the Chassis to a double cradle type.
    Where did you get this mod done?
    How much did it cost?
    Can you please share pictures. I would like the same for my Karizma as well.

    Thank you.
