      This took place around a week back.

      Odo reading : 3200 kms
      Months owned: 4 months

      When i was going to work, towards Marathali Bridge, i had to stop in the usual 10 am morning traffic jam in the crossing just before AOL building (m not sure abt the name of the place). After the signal to move ahead, to my horror, the bike didnt start. The speedometer didnt do the self-check. None of the electricals were working, except a readout on the speedo when i put it on, saying ECU 3.9 on the bottom.

      I called my sales manager, who promptly forwarded the line to the breakdown service manager. After an hour, the breakdown service guys arrived at the location. The first thing the serviceman did was open the battery cover. All check, all good. Then he checked the wire bundle that's located inside the front fairing. He smiled at me, indicating that there was a loose connection. He just plugged it back and ALL SYSTEMS was GO. Everything, FREE of charge, of course.

      Now, I m heading to Coorg this weekend, and I couldnt help but think if it had happened mid-way during that trip, in middle of some forest track. Hmm....

        ^^Pretty serious condition...... so we learnt another lesson on the P220 ..... check all the wirings in and out of the bike, when you see a complete electrical failure.

        Btw... the place where the AOL building is..... is called RMZ Ecospace complex on the Outer Ring Road (ORR)

              PS: about my 220....well its past the 20K mark, going in for a nice service tomorrow, will get the chain sprocket, air filter, disc pads changed....even the clutch plates are beginning to show their age but thats something that would be left till next service. Oh my red devil is 10months old now!

                Nope, coz as the wire was not broken.... it was a minor loose connection, could be coz of the vibes from the faring... from the engine.... or something else.... one can always care to check the connections and push/pull all the wires to see some chance to overcome the electrical issue. Atleast a experienced biker will know about this, coz a battery cannot just drain off its power just in a second, neither will anything happen suddenly to the whole electrical system.
                That says it all I guess Inder.

                  Guys, feels good to be back. Well any views regarding fitting r15 tyres on the 220.


                  • #10
                    With the launch of the R15, the Pulsar 220 does not look all the breathe taking as it used to. Maybe Bajaj need to update it once again

                          It seems speculative. Bajaj are not working on a new Pulsar 220. I think they plan to launch a 250cc bike from Duke.
