    Witnessed first puncture on my bike today, it made a bang sound and went over for next 15mins/10kms before I felt the bike handling messed up completely. I realized that it's a puncture.
    Unfortunately I realized this on the highways and took some effort to take it to a nearby puncture shop.
    Luckily I found one during night, and he repaired the front wheel with tubeless tires repair strip.
    The damn thing got punctured by a huge glass piece embedded in the tire.
    I suppose it's always good to have tubeless tires, I am sure I may have crashed otherwise due to loosing control of front wheel at high speed suddenly.

    Too bad u had a puncture but too good u had tubeless tyre and could travel to the nearest repair shop.. I have ditch my stock tubed tyre and i have changed my front to Michelin - Pilot Sporty 100/80-R17. For the rear, i couldn't coz here at the local store the tyre were out of stock but they will be getting it soon. The rear tubeless tyre only option here is the TVS Rambo 140/90-R15 which i think will be pretty good for highways and on gravels. After replacing the front tyres, I've noticed that the high speed straight line stability has greatly improved and i hope after replacing rear tyre to TVS Rambo the stability will be even better.

    I did not have had the chance to ride the bike for more than few kms in street but now the bike feels in a totally different leauge. The engine vibrations have vanished, the roughness has gone away by huge margins, and the sound is so WoW!!
    I can ride at 40-45kmph on 3rd gear with engine sounding the same way as it used to sound at 40-45kmph in 4th gear!! The gear speed ratio totally changed based on engine sound.

    I never had experience on carb settings tbh, but it didn't seem a big deal unless you're too concern with drops in mileage. I always wanted my bike to run smooth and powerful rather than rough but more miles.
    I will check the spark plugs after a while to see what color they have, just to make sure I didn't make it too rich.
    To all those who were having issues similar to me, I would recommend you guys to try some. Self Maintenance and tuning of the bike. From my understanding the showroom guys or ASC, adjust the bike's stock settings to very weak levels. Specially the carb mixture, the stock settings are too poor.

    You may loose out a bit on mileage but trust me the power gain seems totally worth!!

    The engine now sounds more like a a Honda engine than Pulsar
    Thank you for the tips regarding the carb mixture settings. I have also adjusted the mixture to rich like u recommended. The bike's performance has enhanced and I've noticed better acceleration and the 3rd gear has suddenly become very usable. 2nd Gear have become a little bit more powerful at low RPM and the engine sound has changed a bit too and I like it. But the vibration is still there but a little lesser now and i am sure MOTUL 5100 engine oil will fix the engine vibration. And please let me know after checking ur spark plugs coz I'll too need to change the mixture settings if its running too rich.

    And those guys who wants a boost to ur motorcycle should definitely try this carb mixture tuning and enjoy ur motorcycle performing better.. Thanks mate!

    Looking street150 as an upgrade for my dad from his 5year old hero Glamour.
    Myself own a RS200, so love the vfm factor bajaj offers.

    Took a veryshort testride of street150, it wasn't a great experience, mainly because of the bike was not in a good condition.


    Still verymuch liked the comfort!

    So what I want to know is Braking of street150.
    *How is the stopping power?
    *How is the overall stability of the bike under hard braking?
    *How is the front end under hard braking and front brake alone?
    *How is the performance of the bike with a pillion ?
    My other option in 150cc is Suzuki gixxer, because of the Stability of that bike, and braking, dad like that bike too.

    Thanks in Advance!
    Well yes the street 150 is indeed a very good bike but as u are wanting comfort for your dad yes there is loads. As for the pillion nope not for looong rides as the back goes. Gixr is also a good option you can try that one to.
    Also for the tyres which yo u are getting in the new avy are tubeless so no worries it's called the bs4 version.
    The breaking of avanger is good the rear are very nice being drum they work for me pretty well as also the front one. But yes if there is gravel or sand never hit your breaks as this bike looses control very fast even if you cross the bike over it. Sometimes it's Scarry have gone through it 2 twice till date.
    As mentioned the stopping power is good.
    Yes as bajaj I have been ridding there product for 7 years now. There are times as it can happen with any bike out there or any brand for that matter which is called disk lock. You know when the time we hit the front break in panic and sometimes not always the bike disk gets lock like thak yes that is the time you have to be very cautious as you may fall down. With practise and time you get very adjusted with this bike. Like for me I never liked avanger but today I am in love with it. It's been a 1 year relation ship with her now.

    Can you please confirm or any one out there if at all this rear tubeless tyre only option here is the TVS Rambo 140/90-R15 can be fitted I the current street 150 model on the same alloys. As the asc manager was saying that for getting the tubeless tyre you have to change the rim too. Also this make is different from the current version. 130/90 15.

    Will the anti theft system will be comfortable with 12v4.5 ah battery. On avanger 150. I am still confused on this and there is like no one out there has even put it on the new bike. Well I guess it will look nice on the bike. I had it in my previous bike but yeah it a 9 ah battery then.

    Autocar India's take on Bajaj Avenger 220 Street/Cruise for Laddakh.
    It does feel a bit biased though, specially when they mentioned that braking and off roading is good, which in reality is a sad story .

    Yesterday went to petrol pump to fill fuel and out of curiosity, checked tyre pressure in rear wheel.
    I shocked to see the tyre pressure was 32 instead of recommended 25!!!!!!
    Checked front tyre pressure as it was 29 instead of 21!!!
    Immediately lowered pressure to recommended 21 in front and 25 in rear tyre, now my bike runs very smooth on bad roads, jumping is reduced after that.

    Check your tyre pressure soon.

    hi

    Avenger is really better than RE bikes in terms of comfort and suspension.
    Its reliable engine is superb!

    I wasn't talking about reliability and comfort. Avenger in any means is by far better than RE when it comes to Comfort and Reliability/Maintenance, however its the braking and control on off-roads or non tarmac which is terrible - though most of it is due to the design of the bike so there's nothing that can be done about it other than adding Rear Discs and ABS.
    Anyway, my point was how in the video review they mention the false claims of braking and control being exceptional on rough terrain which is entirely opposite. So this is like fooling the end buyer .
