    The engine cowl does look awesome and I'd definitely want to plonk that to my 220.
    Heard from the SA that it is not possible to do that since the mount point is welded somewhere down there.

    All rubber bits are easily available from Bajaj, i recently changed the brake and gear sheaths as well.

    You can buy any part you want from Bajaj spares, though to fit the engine cowl you need to fabricate mount points, not worth the money and effort considering what you're aiming for.

    I change AF every 5k km's, this AF has mostly been used within city limits with the exception of the most recent interstate run.

    I've put in the new AF without lubing as advised by Parvez bhai, no difference in performance noted, but then I've not been able to blast her at WOT in final drive due to limited Kerala roads.

    Cheers,

    This time, I'm just gonna plonk it "as-is".
    No oil drops and massage to the filter before it goes in.
    I'm sure it's not just the oil which captures the dust.

    Isn't it better to use a paper filter, as foam ones need oil to function well.

    Also, I saw a bike hacks video, they were using that disposable cap, that people in food industry use to cover their heads. They used that cap to cover the filter what have you paper, free flow whatnot. As per them, it would help to prevent dust buildup on filters.

    Had reached out to a friend who works in the OEM filter elements business and he said that it's fine to use a modern foam filter without lube as long as you're not intending to reuse it as the lube helps in binding the crap and thus facilitate cleaning, without it the dust simply impregnates the filter and doesn't come off easily.

    As for replacements, why mess with stock when it's cheap and works well.

    Yes as in my case , they said the AF needs replacement after 12K Kms and I still using the same.

    Obviously I can feel the power drop nowadays !! I can't pin point the actual reason and the engine shuts off automatically at second gear . What could be the issue ?


    Thanks,

    Could very well be slight carb tuning issue, nothing big.
    Or clutch setting
    Or fuel.

    I replaced mine at 15K and current odo reads 18800.
    So another 2-3K kms and I'll replace it again.
