    My bike struggles to keep good speeds in highways (110-120). I am planning to do Bangalore-AP ride this October.
    I dont mind loosing out on acceleration as i dont ride like a maniac on the roads, i want to cruise on the highway with decent speeds and also reach places faster and with less stressed engine. Every time i ride at speeds of over 100, i feel engine is badly stressed and needs a stop.
    What would be the best setup for the highway where i willl be able to cruise and still dont tamper usable torque that is needed in the city. Also can you give me sprocket numbers as to which alternative one to go for?

    Thanks
    East or West, Stock is the best!

    14/36 is the Stock setup for the Carburetted P220.

But it's not like that, I feel the problem is I can't keep triple digits speed at ease and cruise along the highway since I got the bike. I have done couple of rides on the highway and always felt the gearing is kinda let down for my liking.

    Air filter and spark plugs are all good.
    I want to replace stock ones with NGK, as for Air Filter I clean it myself and use it.

    Whole point of trying to get a different sprocket setup is because it's due for change and want it as per my liking.
    Bro myself and Ashwin weigh on the higher side of the scale. And if we can cruise 110-120 easily on P220 and are suggesting you to go with the stock chainset, you have ti consider something might be off with your ride. I'd also suggest getting a carb overhaul or tune up to see why is 220 acting like 150.

    On my previous ride, Honda Shine, I was getting low average and it always would always get higher readings on pollution testing. A new mechanic I went to did the carb tuning using the pollution machine, bike became smoother and efficiency increased.

    Hmmm! Okay..
    I keep my ride in good condition.
    I get it serviced and make sure that she's all smiles. As for the carb tuning and other things, even that's checked and I get my bike serviced with a mechanic whose pretty good at his work.
    As for the bike, no drops or falls. She's all good and I use Motul 10W50 7100.
    No major changes or repairs.
    Since I was due to change the sprockets, I thought of getting something that would suit highway's and keep up the pace and ride triple digits at ease.
    But I got good life on sprockets 23,000 KM's is pretty good isn't it? I used Motul gear oil couldn't afford the chain spray every now and then.
    Not that I ride slow. Occasional launches on the red lights, rapid over takes and lil fun in the corners too.
    Anyways will stick to the stock setup and update.

    Compatibility isn't an issue, you just need to change the rear wheel spacer along with the alloy other than that everything else is a direct fit. What was an issue for me was that I'm simply too cheap to get new rims when my existing rims were working just fine in spite of all the abuse.

    As for sprocketing, I've tried 14/40 and currently running on 14/37.

    But let me tell you, nothing beats the 14/36 configuration out on the highways.

    Irrespective of the setup you use the top speed would remain more or less the same, only that you'd be hitting redline sooner.

    Will change the tyres to masseter for now. The rim change mod will be done later.
    How are the masseters in your bike are performing? Need a review of its wet grip and cornering feedback.

    Tire is not a fan of slush, other than that sticks like a leach, my rear end is raised and I'm using RTR brakes, so handling is better than stock and the Masseters simply take it
    to the next level.

    Have a look at my contact patch, it'd give you an idea of the world of difference I'm referring to:

    Thanks. I will definitely go for the masseters. That contact patch is what I was looking for.

    Fitted night eye led. Got it for 1.5k from banggod. 35w per bulb saves battery compared to the 55w halogens. There is no such noticeable difference. If you need a white light with brightness same as the stock halo bulb then go for it. Posting both low and high beam pics.Name:  IMG_20191001_203856.jpg

    Had attended the 2019 xBhp ISG2G on my P220 and managed to burn my clutch by riding uphill on an offroad terrain with a pillion.

    So got replacement parts from Bajaj and changed the Clutch, Scissor Gear and Cleaned the Strainer and Centrifugal Filter.

    Bought pre-assembled clutch but had to undo it as the plates weren't properly aligned, so much for plug and play.

    Overall it was a good run, my front fork is still messed up, if time permits I'll overhaul the same shortly.

    Engine internals look spotlessly clean! Most Bajaj engines I saw on the internet will have a decent amount of that brownish varnish. The ancient rotor type oil filter had worked really well. Why did you change the Scissor Gear?

    Indeed the only stains if any were from me touching it.

    Frequent oil changes really do make a noticeable difference.

    The current scissor gear had some play but was working fine as it held tension surprisingly well when I tried to load it so as to show a fellow enthusiast how its done, I changed it cause I intend to not open the clutch cover for another 50k km's as I'm really lazy.

    Taking the gasket material off was a PITA so this time before installing I'd smeared bearing grease on it, hopefully next time the case is opened it wont take so much effort.

    Unlike other engines, the P220 does have quite a few timing marks to look into courtesy of the counter-balancer being connected to the clutch bell via the scissor gear.
