    Just wanted to check the quantity of oil that goes in 1 fork and the grade.
    Spares are dirt cheap for a 220 with rear suspension costing 1000 bucks for 1 side x 2 = Rs. 2000 for the whole rear suspension change.
    It does rattle a bit at the back and suspension seems to have gone a bit hard at the rear though. Will get all the screws, nuts and bolts greased and torque'd properly to make it smooth as cactus again.
    For 220/- you can sourse a station nut holder for the P220 the head pattern is different from other motorcycles. Using that you can overhaul the front forks.

    The cone-set can also be changed using the same tool, due to the length I just keep it place and tap it to get the cone-set out.

    As for brakes, replace the fluid once a year, would take 10 mins at max for both ends. While making sure fluid level doesn't drop past mid;

    Step 1: Crack open the nipple.
    Step 2: Press and hold brake lever.
    Step 3: Close nipple.
    Step 4: Release brake lever.
    Step 5: Repeat until you see new fluid passing through the system.

    I swap between DOT3 and DOT4 per year as the change is dye color helps me determine whether I've got the entire old fluid out of the system.

    Rattling at the rear is due to the panels creaking, ignore and ride on. If it is the suspensions squealing then you might consider replacing the bushes.

    P220 is dirt cheap to own and even cheaper if you take the DIY route.

    I wonder if 220 was known for giving 60-65 kmpl, it would have given Splendor/Passion/Shine a really tough competition
    This is gold info bhai. Thank you so much.

    Need Help.

    Engine oil was leaking from where we drain the engine oil, went yesterday to SVC and he changed the washer of the nut. Today morning when I checked, the engine oil is still leaking, though the leakage is less compared to previous but the problem still persists. What could be wrong. I had this problem last year also and SVC did the same thing and the problem was solved but this time it didn't worked.

    Thanks

    are the threads of the drain hole perfect ?
    if its deformed then the bolt cant be tightened fully , thats why the oil is leaking .

    depends upon the problem bro . first check if its true that threads r gone . if its gone then rethread it with oversize bolt or get same size collor fitted , for that engine should be removed from the bike

    290 ML +- 10 ML per fork leg. The smoothness/harshness mostly is related the engine's balancer. No amount of torquing/greasing the bolts would smoothen out the vibes on certain machines. A 220 that's crossed 16k Would and Will have to get its balancer gear checked also known as scissor gear. It can be either re-loaded and installed or if it's having too much play, it can be replaced, the part costs approximately 650 bucks and is basically a spring loaded toothed gear. For engine vibrations this yields best results coupled with general maintenance such as lubing and what not.

    I'd suggest you check the drain bolt thread for any minute cracks. The 220 is prone to drain bolt thread cracks, which being very minute and oil starts weeping which over time causes significant reduction in engine oil. Wipe the area, remove the engine oil, thoroughly inspect the hole and the vicinity for any cracks or striped threads. If everything's fine after a thorough inspection, replace the drain nut with the washer.

    Usually leaks happen due to the drain bolt not torqued enough which is either due to faulty threads either on the bolt or on the engine casing or minute cracks on the engine casing where the drain bolt goes. Do a through inspection and keep your observations posted.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Thank you so much for the guidance bhai. This thread does yield gold.

    Is there any grade for fork oil bhai?

    I'm gonna go to my trusted independent SVC to get my 220 a post rains check and service. Bought NGK spark plugs so those will go in too this time.
    Will take my own cleaner and lube for the chain to avoid spending unnecessarily.
    Most probably I'll buy 500mL of gear oil and work with it.

    Should I get the parts - fork oil bottles and seal from Bajaj itself?

    Also, can anyone share the workshop manual for P220? It'll be more useful now in the coming days.
