    Hi Gurus,

    I have a Avenger 220 Cruise which I drive quite rarely. In one year it's done just 600 Kms. I do make it a point to clean and drive it for a short distance every weekend. The bike has been serviced as per schedule and is perfectly fine except when starting.

    Whenever I start it, it have to leave it idling for almost 5 minutes otherwise as soon as I give accelerator the engine shuts down. This was not happenning earlier but started after the second service. I think the service folks adjusted the carb Fuel Volume screw.

    I don't want to go back to the service center as they may spoil something else, my confidence on them is low.

    My question is: Do we know what is the factory setting for the Fuel Volume (Air/Fuel) screw for the Bajaj Avenger 220. How many turns is it opened from the full close position? Any help will be really appreciated.

    Certain imp questions
    1.Oil changes at ?? Kms
    2.Which oil: Bajaj or other brand
    3.How much oil was specified on oil bottle

    Now its normal for the oil viewing glass to be filled completely when the bike is parked on main stand for long time(2-3 hrs)

    As per manual, oil level should be in between upper(max) & lower level (min). If its right upto upper level. Drive for 20 kms, after that if you smell like oil is burned especially from engine exhaust, then remove excess oil(50ml should suffice) . But i don't think you have any excess oil in your bike.

    From my personal experience, where my mechanic accidentally poured wrong engine oil (20w40 instead of 20w50)with wrong quantity (1.2l instead of 1 litre) burnt oil smell was coming also engine gets hot lot faster. Oil starts to leak from above sparkplug. So be careful.

    Certain imp tips
    1)Use mineral oil till your bike reaches 5000 kms
    2)After 5,000 kms, use Motul 3100 20w50 semi synthetic oil for interval of 3,000 kms
    3)After 18,000 kms use Motul 7100 20w50 Fully synthetic oil for interval of 4,000 kms
    4) Use Engine flush before changing oil, pour 50ml in engine, keep it running for 3-5 minutes, then let the engine cool a little before removing engine oil.
    5) Clean fuel tank after every 5,000 kms
    6) After engine oil change wash the lower portion of your bike especially near the engine drain nut. Certain amount of old engine oil sticks near that drain nut. I ignored it for 12,000 kms only to find that oil starts leaking since drain nut get loose.
    7)Never put incorect grade & quantity.

    Nowadays there are many changes in rules & regulations for Automobiles in India. Government is pushing Automobile manufacturers in india to go electric without any proper infrastructure. Bajaj's policy is to keep legacy products alive, keeps launching variants for shirt terms. Look at Avenger series only 220 is still in production, 150,160,180 have short term product life cycle for Bajaj. Consider 220 street/classic for long term parts availability. I own 150 street for 2.5 yrs. Only problem I after a 1 yr was gear shifter spring stopped working, got replaced after making lot of noise in service center typical Bajaj. Rear brake pads gets changed after 2000 kms. Scheduled maintenance will keep your Avenger trouble free. What exactly are your requirement. I would suggest you to get atleast dual channel ABS bike. Also keep in mind bike is just one part of riding. Proper riding gears does help a lot. Also safety accessories like knuckle guard does save rider in small mishaps. My hands were saved twiced in city accidents.
