Yes the bike was torquey, a bit more than the stock 220, i had used the skirted piston from P200 rather than 220's flat one, which in turn boosted the compression ratio. So had to shave the head a bit to ease compression.


    Now after 80000 KMS on that setup i changed the engine itself. This setup lasted a lot and was wuite reliable for me.

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----



    I had a Pulsar 180 UG4 engine with 200 bore kit and 220's con rod, it lasted over 80000KMS and still didnt give up, had developed oil drinking issue so got a new engine itself. Bajaj manages to keep their prices low and thats how it does it, "INTERCHANGEABILITY" is how Bajaj is playing safe. Be it Pulsar 180 or 200 or 220, all three have same cranks, only the size of con rod differs, 200 and 220 have same bore but 200's piston is skirted whereas 220 has a flat one.
    Sir means you have not installed any parts from x, y, z manufacturer? All parts were OEM?
    I am in a confusion because AFAIK the stock length of both P180 and P200 is same so the cylinder kit of P200 should have be direct fit on the base engine of P180 then why did you installed a con-rod of P220 which I guess is longer(correct me if i am wrong here). Even if so then was it direct fit(con-rod)? Even did you planned to change the cylinder head of P180 to P200 rather than porting the inlet and outlet of P180 cylinder head(to make it an overall stock P200)?
    Even as you mentioned that you were running with a P200 cylinder kit along with ported head so did you tweeked the carburetor because AFAIK both 180 and 200 runs on the same carburetor i.e UCAL made BS29 but with different jets and needle?
    Well a very close friend of mine is having a 2010 model P220 and it had crossed around 60k kms on ODO and was on stock cylinder kit and was not buring any oil though but during an oil change at around 58-59K kms the left crank case got cracked and whole thing was changed(cylinder-kit, valves etc). So even as per my experience pulsars are reliable and one just need to maintain it religiously.

    Yes, Every part was OEM, including the gaskets, changed the con rod cos i didnt want to change the crankshaft assembly overall. Fueling duties were done by BS29 with larger mainjet previously but later i made a custom manifold(elbow in mechanic's lingo) to accomodate 32mm carb of P220, it had a P200 piston, the piston dia for 200 and 220 is same, the stroke differs, so a higher compression can easily be achieved by using a 200 piston, which is not recommended, i had to use 2 gaskets to ease it a bit, also some shaving on head was done. Overall, this was a pretty reliable setup, I cannot say that Bajaj bikes won't last long, to me this modified setup lasted over 80000KMS and stock 180 setup was already 22000KMS old at that time.

    Hi guys, gave my bike for 1st service today at 550 kms on the odo. Hate the Bajaj engine oil, just like I did on my P180. Want to change to Motul immediately after I take the bike out of service. And I know it means draining the Baja oil immediately without using it much. I know fully synthetic is a big no. So that said, should I go for a semi synthetic like Motul 5100 or the Motul 3000 mineral? Would be great if someone could reply asap.

    Go for Motul 5100 eyes closed. Period. The new Bajaj is a FS oil made by TOTAL I guess. Even that's crappy? What did your bottle read?

    Thanks for the response, VJ! But I read a lot of posts warning against using an SS oil at least until the first 2500-3000 kms. What's your take on that? And yeah, I had to leave my bike at the service station and go. So not really sure what went inside. But nonetheless, gearshift is still clunky and engine is rough.

    There shouldn't be any problem using SS from the first 2.5 to 3k, go for it. It is one of the best oils for the 220 based purely on my experience.. Since your bike is in the running in period, it would definitely take time for it to get loosened up. At around 5k she should get sorted.

    Cheers!
