    That's not rust, its dirt, settles there as its hard to clean.

    My second pair of shockers are as old as your motorcycle, so I presume they might've been manufactured about the same time, and my motorcycle has been left out in the rains the past few weeks, nuts and bolts have rusted here and there but the shockers are dirty yet fine.

    I wouldn't complain about the paint as a paircosts around 2k'ish.

    Hello Guys!!
    I want to change my pulsar 220s Handlebar to single piece handle bar. I am considering Dominar or Dukes Handle bar and clamps.
    According to you all which would be the best??
    And please let me know which break and clutch cables to use?

    Please help as i want a upright riding position as i am facing back and shoulder ache and want to go for a long tour.
    And also i want to know about NGK spark plugs, where can i get it and does it improves the smoothness and throttle response?

    @ashwinprakas, he is the right person to talk about it.

    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

    The KTM bar's are thick at the center and taper out, so if you opt for KTM brackets then you can only use KTM bars.

    The KTM bars offer better street handling and flick-ability, though if you set them up without the handlebar cushions then things would get jarring at interstate speeds.

    Until last weekend I was running on Discover 150F bars and brackets, they're perfect for touring, costs a fraction of what the KTM setup costs and is universal, this time around I'd set them up with proper cushions in place hence the ride quality was of OEM standards such that the motorcycle felt as though it had come from the factory as such.

    As for control cables, the throttle cable was always stock, you dont need to go for an alternative, just rerouting it would be fine.

    As for clutch cable, you need to get the one from the Avenger, its quite long.

    As for brake cable, with KTM you can manage with the stock line, with Discover setup you need to opt for the Avengers brake line as well.

    That's all there is to say I presume.

    As of now I'm back to the clip-ons due to a minor mishap I had last weekend, if you ask me I'd suggest going with the Discover setup as it helps you haul some serious ass without breaking a sweat!

    P.S. With the clip-ons off you can actually raise the front end a bit as there would be about an inch or two of unused fork length left.

    Sahyadri is very good.

    I have tried their test version of handlebar adapters a few years ago, since then they have changed to CNC machining which is a positive move.

    @All,

    I have changed to RTR Clutch Lever Set and Master Cylinder Set as even after yesterdays overhaul things didn't seem confidence inspiring.

    I'd say it is a weird choice. Because from what I've heard, the RTRs have the worst braking in the segment. Not that the braking is bad, but it is behind all its competitors.

    No specific brand. They are manufactured by TVS.

    I might be wrong, but from the looks of it seems to be a Nissin replica from the type found on the ZMA.

    You really going to tell a starving Somalian kid to opt for Domino's instead of Pizza Hut?

    The stock MC on mine was crap(Plastic Piston), compared to that the RTR one is dope, though I do wonder why the brake and clutch levers are slightly different when it comes to color, the clutch seems painted silver whereas the brake is proper chrome. Though at this price point I could care less.

    As for the rest, I finally changed my Float Sensor and O ring and Carburetor Insulator which was cracked, found some dark residue on the intake tract on the head, not sure if it was a result of backfiring or dirt that had got in due to the crack on the insulator.

    Usually when insulator gives up motorcycles start to act funny, but the P220 just doesn't seem to give a shit.

    As mentioned the entire brake system was overhauled Yesterday, Old MC and Caliper as well, the brake line has been changed to stock steel braided lines as well.

    As for the rear, OH kit isn't available hence the thing has to be replaced, so didn't even change the lines, let it run till it goes once it fails I'll get a replacement along with braided lines of the Duke 200. Speaking of rear MC's are they universal?

    In spite of all the spare hunting I managed to forget about the Oil Sensor once again, so I guess I'd try to remember it for next time.

    Edit:

    The Banjo's are different so if opting for RTR MC do make sure to get Banjo as well.

    The one on the left is the one from Bajaj and the one on the right is the RTR one.

    Yes from the looks of it, I too think it's a Nissin replica. Is there any specific reason you didn't go for a oe Nissin MC from Honda other than price?. Last time I enquired it was on the line of ₹1300 i think.
