    No buddy here except us.. ha ha..

    Dude the lighting issue is very critical. What ever I’ve learned that the stock one is best and trouble free.

    There have lots of option to enhance the Drive light.

    1> Fog light ( It comes with variety option – ultra white, HID, Projector lam etc )

    2>HID – HID is a good option, ultra white light and the focus is very very good. It comes with a power blaster that generates extra power. But the concern is very few range of HID are not allowed in major cities. There have many version of HID Bulb like H1, H4, H7 etc. I clearly don’t know which one is allowed and which one is not. If you blow these lights at few top points of Kolkata like Park Street etc, definitely the traffic officer will fine you. The HID starting from 1.5k, I saw a HID that cost 3k without any warranty, and the shop keeper claimed its good. But there have many other issues like AC, DC power supply, watts, how long the battery can afford the light etc. If you can get a good HID suppose for 3k+ bucks, you can put it on very easily, no modification would be require. Just plug and play. Just check before buying the input power: Voltage, Watts and AC or DC current supply it requires. But still you wont be turn on the light always like the stock one. It will drain the battery much more than the stock one and it has a limited life.


    3>The most awesome lighting is Projector HID. It comes with halogen version and HID version also with angel eyes. You can say it’s the optimum light you’ve ever imagine. It cost between 5k to 12k. You wont get a single piece, you have to buy a set, coz these are only for cars. But again the issue is Traffic rules and power supply ( AC, DC, watts ) issue.

    Here is an example:

    The best option for lighting I think – put one or two good quality Fog light without removing the stock head light. You can get also HID, ultra white, projector version of these lights. This way you can use these lights alternatively. Like just blow where you need it. And turned it of where you feel its not safe.

    What the above person said is true. You might be fined if police get hold of you with improper lighting. HID's are damn good but very expensive and it required modifications in wiring etc.,

    As per the rules, the max distance that a high beam should cover is 80m or slightly more.

    Better to stick to stock lighting.

    What is the pressure that is set while filling air ? The bunk guy usually puts 36 Psi for front tyre and 40 Psi for the rear tyre ? Is this a lot ? What is the optimum level with/without a pillion ?

    Ya, The high beam is good. 36 in the front and 40 in rear is too high. Though, I some times used 30 in front and 40 in rear and the result is, the bike runs really smooth on good road, but it is very very risky one.
    Move on.........

    Yes, I am also thinking of fixing the fog light. I need to search for a good mechanic to fix that on my Hunky. Do you have any idea from where I can get a good quality lamps?

    Default oil additives.....??????????

    @Soumen; I require another suggestion.
    Is the oil additives are good for our engines?? I have searched all the major engine oil websites and they have suggested not to use any additives. Even few websites raised their voice against using any additives. But, still, can we use any additives??? Actually I am very much concerned about the health of the engine.
    Bajaj is recommending bardahl engine treatment.
    Can we do anything XTRA for our precious engine ?????
    Move on.........

    Dude if you love you bike the never do bellow things.

    Don’t use any Fuel and engine oil Additive. These will give you short time pleasure but not good for future. The default oil and fuel itself added with additive.

    Never flush your engine, at least before 20k km.
    Don’t unnecessary modify your bike.
    Always go for manufacturer’s recommendation (except Brand) like tire pressure, oil grade, fuel etc.


    If you want a healthy engine then always keep it clean from inside. Drain oil and put fresh oil that’s enough.

    The best thing is to keep the engine healthy is use mineral oil and drain it at every 1500 km. As I said before the oil get darker not only due to heat, due to the friction between metal and the metal create sludge and the oil collect them. Basically these mineral oils loose its actual capabilities after just 1000-1200km so it looses the smoothness. Don’t go for any thing that will give you short time pleasure.

    And regarding the fog light, you can get good verity light only at Kolkata Wellington auto market. And in locality you can get only the regular lights.

    I’m thinking to put a good one single aftermarket Projector Fog light separately. I think its enough. I don’t know its available in Kolkata or not, I’ve to check, But I didn’t manages to visit there.

    You can go for any light, any bulb but the issue is power consumption. The whole bike have many light like tail light, stop light, console light, side indicator light etc and these all are working at the same time so the full power system designed to take all those loads at the same time. The tail light have a different watts, the indicator light have a different watts etc. So now if somewhere if you put extra watts then definitely it would create extra pressure on the power source and it will require more power. So the ultimate thing is draining the battery. However you may not get any problem due to that if your battery is healthy, but you may get trouble.

    So what ever mode you want just let it done buy an expertise. And I too dont know the exact gov. rules for headlights.
    Speed is a joy but roads are not race track. Keep speed in your limit and always Drive safe...
