    Two months back I had gone for a tyre change.the front tyre size of the CBZ is the same as rear tyre of shine.a tyre designed for rear tyre of another motorcycle will make the steering sluggish and the lack of centre grove may also result in diminished grip in wet. The purpose and load of rear and front being different,it may lead to a crash even in the dry .just for information.
    Luckily, a senior mechanic from tyre shop itself found out ,but had to refit the old tyre because they didn't have stock.changed from another shop.
    I changed both my tyres to Apollo,I feel that the grip levels are better than MRFs.
    Fron tyre set me back by 1700 bucks and rear tyre by 1950
    Rear-apollo actigrip R4-100/90-18
    Front-80/100-18(same size as Honda shine,so have to be careful here)-apollo actizip F2

    Today changed my CBZ xtreme rear tyre after clocking 37000 kms (vehicle age 10 years)

    Stock tyre is MRF nylon zapper Y series

    Bought Michelin Sirac street 100/90-18 rear tubed tyre for Rs 2000/-

    I m planning to get my vehicle repainted by a local spray painter . Any suggestions on the paint company and quality are welcome, as I m noob and also skeptical about the paint quality that will be used by the painter

    Is there any reliable paint which gives good quality on par with OEM paint quality?

    Its been 9 years with CBZ Xtreme .Baught it in 2011. So far so good . there is something with this engine . its so addictive. mine has done 42000 km only. although not too much but the way CBZ entertained me is just awesome . Yes CBZ needs some good maintainance as most bikes but it will reward you for that. i have used 10w30 oil mostly . it warms with this in summer and need little time to cool. but mostly satisfied with CBZ . It loves highway and behaves like bigger bikes there. just one issue found . low end is not that great and in ghat section the lack of it is more evident. mileage is 45 in city and around 50 in highway which is good considering my aggressive driving style. Never thaught of buying another bike .

    Question Re: CBZ xtreme / Hunk

    Hi Folks,

    It's nearly 9 years since I bought CBZ 2011 Model
    Odo is now 36,000 kms
    It has been almost smooth except for some unique problems I had. Now as I wish to upgrade the bike, I was considering the following options. Can you people look into it and give some inputs?

    1. Sell this and buy another bike (This needs to be another post if I have to choose between options)
    2. Install Joel's kit on the bike, if he is still doing this for CBZ
    3. This one is complicated, I just want to know if some one tried any of these if not all of them
      - Install Karizma Cylinder Piston kit
      - Change chain and sprocekt to O-Ring chain from Honda siblings
      - Make any other modifications like carburetor change or install FI as necessary when replacing the Kit
      - Upgrade front headlamp to LED / Projector
      - Softer sears for better long distance trips


    If any of you have any idea on any of these, please type in and post. Thank you

    Hi all,

    A month ago, I got my CBZ repaired for petrol drain through Carburetor drain tube. The SVC replaced the fuel tap and something they call the vacuum piston. Now after riding around 300km, the same issue popped up again. The SVC said I have to replace carburetor if this comes up again. Any other workarounds?

    Thank you,
    Kiran

    By vacuum piston I think they mean the vacuum slide for the carb. Ask them to check the float level tab, and adjust. You can check it yourself, lot of sites available online. Check the float needle/ valve too for free movement and pitting or damage. Check if the float is actually floating, and not leaking. Also, check the drain screw, if it is not seating properly the petrol will leak through the drain pipe too. Let us know your findings, carb replacement is last resort and shortcut which SVC will do since they don't have time, try to find a good mechanic or go DIY. Carbs are quite simple actually to diagnose and fix.

    1. Sell this and buy another bike (This needs to be another post if I have to choose between options)
    2. This bike has a character. Punchy rev Happy engine and is good handler. I don't know what are the problems you are facing with your bike. But see every problem has a solution. I love my Cbz Xtreme 2011 model. If you are interested in buying new ride then you can look at Hero Xtreme 160r (newest in segment) , Unicorn 160 bs6 (but old design and lack of features and overpriced), TVs Apache 160 4v bs6 .Can't go wrong with any of these.
    3. Install Joel's kit on the bike, if he is still doing this for CBZ
    4. I don't have idea about this . But one thing for sure is installing big bore in existing bike will be bad idea .If you do so lot of factors should be taken into consideration. So be prepared, do extextensive research before doing so .
    5. This one is complicated, I just want to know if some one tried any of these if not all of them
      - Install Karizma Cylinder Piston kit
      - Change chain and sprocekt to O-Ring chain from Honda siblings
      - Make any other modifications like carburetor change or install FI as necessary when replacing the Kit
      - Upgrade front headlamp to LED / Projector
      - Softer sears for better long distance trips
    6. You can go for Honda dazzler chain sprocket . It comes with 15 T front and 42T back. But while doing so get 14T front sprocket and use it instead of 15 T . Bike will feel easy . 14 T front and 42 back is best combo. But make sure if cb dazzler chain sprocket fits coz I am not sure. No need to change carburetor even if you go for big bore . CV carburetor used in our bike has already 28mm jet size. Bigger than say unicorn, achiever. You can go for bigger jet size. Projector,HID are the things I never tried on my bike but am sure it will drain out battery quickly. My recommendation will be use Phillips Germany 35w bulb. It's really good . Am am satisfied with it. After going for o ring chain sprocket, you can replace your 4 kg heavyweight chain cover with tvs apche 160 2v half hain cover which is good quality and also light. I have done this in my bike . Will improve power to weight ratio. But negative side is more maintenance of chain.

    Update . Recently got engine kill switch for bike. As far as total changes I have done to my bike
    1) got half chain case . Fitted Apache 160 2v chain cover for weight seving . As Cbz Xtreme chain cover is 4 kg heavy.
    2) Recently got 0 ring chain sprocket of cb dazzler with 14 teeth front sprocket separately baught. Now combo is 42 back and 14 front. Little Change in sprocket ratio. Bike now making 65 at 5000 rpm instead of 63.
    3) Engine reboring has been done year ago (1st oversize with USHA piston) bike feels better than when was new. Carburetor set as per sibun mehod .Thanks Sibun . Also using veedol take off 4T 10w30 oil for engine and motul chain spray for chain sprocket. Engine easily redlines in any gear. Vibrations are little and bearable. Engine is as smooth as unicorn.Also valves and timing chain has been replaced. Spark plug is Ngk g power cpr8ea. Engine reboring has to be done beause of my friend who used my bike for a month carelessly when me with my family was out of town . My fault.
    4) Engine kill switch and headlight is running on DC . Bike
    Current running is 43000 km.
    5) Tank pad of pulser 150. Small but beautiful upade.
    Yesterday i went to Lavasa with my friend. Lavasa ghat is
    really blessing for bikers. Beautiful twist and turns . Will update about trip soon.

    Pics taken in yesterday's tour.
    For DC conversion of headlight and kill switch, did you have to upgrade the battery?

    Been long thinking of getting those done.

    What is this Sibun method of carb tuning? Any link would be helpful.

    Thanks
