    I need your help with My Avenger 220 Street 2019 model. Two weeks back when I was all set to go for a ride my bike ignition didn't work. It displayed en error message. I pushed it in second gear and got it started somehow. After going 4-5kms it got charged. It went fine further.
    Last Sunday I didnt rode it anywhere and on Monday morning when I started it, the ignition didn't work again. And again I increased RPM and pushed it and started.
    Today also I had to press the ignition 3-4 times and increase RPM. I feared it might need that push start method again.

    Now I must mention some of the things about my bike and riding -
    1) I rode it daily 8-10kms except Sundays.
    2) Battery indicator doesn't blink so I get to know if its discharged.
    3)Two electrical accessories which I have installed on it
    #1) Motowolf mobile mount and charger(which I never used to charge my mobile, only there is a small LED indicator remains on in this mobile holder)
    #2) A gps device which always tracks its location.
    Apart from this I haven't installed any accessories like lights still I wonder how does it get drained so fast.
    4) The place where I live is dry hot climate not cold or humid.
    I knew already there wasn't a kick in this bike, still I bought this bike with great charm coz I didn't see forums or reviews that mention serious issues with its ignition. Also I see many Avengers with lots of accessories and riding high altitude regions with no big issues. Should I remove those two accessories too ?
    This is so embarrassing sometimes when you are pushing your new bike that you had bought with great enthusiasm.

    Please suggest me what should I do now.
    Thanks fellows.

    Pls check if the mobile mount/charger draws power when ignition is off.

    And for the GPS tracker, check the power draw. And if there is an option to make it track location after given interval, you can set it accordingly to increase the interval.

    Regarding some particular issue with charging system, owners and pros can better enlighten you. You can observe it over the weekend by disengaging the accesories, that'll give you a better picture.

    Thanks buddy for your quick response.
    Yes, even when the key isn't in, the charger LED is always on. Both accessories are directly attached with battery terminals. (Done so to avoid any wire cutting)
    I am just going to remove both of them and then observe. I wish there is no big issue coz Bajaj ASCs are not heard to be great generally.

    If you wanted to do it direct, you should have just used a switch in series to stop them drawing current 24/7, atleast for the charger.

    Hello again...
    I kept my bike parked for 24hours and started it on Monday morning. It got started at once.
    Now, my concern is, its okay to remove those accessories from battery coz I am not going on long rides but I will need them later. So will it drain battery again ? Also will installing an in line switch (as you suggested earlier) solve this problem ?

    It will solve the problem, as switch will prevent any accessory from draining battery. First, get the switch on the phone charger, it's a must. Then, switch off the charger supply and just let the GPS be connected to battery and see if your bike still starts next Monday.

    Yesterday I installed additional step for saree guard as new Avengers dont have one. It become difficult for elder women to sit and rest their legs in absence of footrest (step).
    I installed it from local market.
    Installation time 2 min, cost : 220 Rs.
    Now anyone can sit on rear seat of bike easily.

    Hi
    I drive with exact same ratio, though there is no tachometer, its very easy to judge the engine stress. On 5th Gear bike runs smooth on between 50-60 kmph

    Hi,
    All three models are superb!
    Street model is good for city ride but my Cruise is also good there. I did not find any difficulty in driving mumbai traffic .
    -New street Avengers may come with Tubeless tyres but Cruise wont.
    -Avengers are reliable than RE bikes and routine maintenance is all that you need. Maintenance cost is low and spares are easily available.
    -150 street will give you more mileage and driving comfort also.
    -Take a pic of yourself while sitting on bike and decide how it suits your height, I am 5'4" so it suits me.

    I selected cruise for its looks, classic chrome finished parts, oil cooled engine and Golden Cat is not common on road.
    Traffic cops generally stops sports bikes but cruise bike riders are decent people so no worry

    Hi, today I changed my engine oil of my avenger 150 using a local mechanic. Now when I check the oil level, the viewing glass is fully covered. If I run the engine while in center stand, the oil level stands at the max mark, after switching it off it gradually fills the whole screen. So should I drain the excess oil or would it not be a problem till the next oil change?
