    I changed the wiring assembly completely. Now the dancing rev problem is gone. The carb was not the problem, but the fuel line was. The fuel line was cracked up and water was easily entering the carb from the lining crack which was causing the engine to stall as soon as it rains. This however is not yet tested and will have to wait for Mumbai rains next year to check it out .
    So as of now, everything is smooth.

    Hi I own a tbts500 and since the thred isn't as active as this one I was hoping to get some answers here ..I am looking for a tank bag and am inclined towards the rynox optimus I would just like to know if the handle touches the handlebars on lock to lock.

    I've used the ViaTerra tank bag and it does not touch the handlebar. The precaution is not to load voluminous stuff in the side pockets.

    Hi,
    Recently completed a road trip to Rann of Kutch on my TB 350. Sharing a few points I noted,
    1. The bike remains steady on the highways even at speeds and trucks passing by
    2. Excellent handling on the roads if the tyre pressure and suspensions are adjusted
    3. Average per liter achieved was 38 km/l (was carrying saddle bags, tank bag, and a pillion all the time)
    4. Since my ride had extensive driving on 4 days carried a chain spray and used it whenever required (i.e. chain ran dry)
    5. No oil leaks
    6. Had used an additive in engine oil before starting and it helped keep the engine smooth even after approx. 2800 kms run

    Will add few more points soon

    Has anyone tried to change the fuel tank on the TB350? If so, please give me some pointers. My tank isnt so bad, but its started rusting from the inside, and I need to change soon. While I'm at it, I want to get a better tank, with a proper fuel cap and cover, which does not let tankers full of water to seep inside that tank.

    Any pointers would be helpful.

    Cheers!

    To anyone who can help me with options, sourcing locations, pictures, price etc. I will be very thankful indeed. I have already got some help from this forum with random questions..

    Contacts in/around Mumbai will be preferable.

    Thank you all!!

    Well after a bit of searching around, and also being tempted by the much too expensive vardenchi kits, I'm back to reality, and here's an update:

    1. New seats: Next in line, will not dabble much, found a contact, and will get it done next month.
    2. New rear veiew mirrors: tried a few after markets, but wasnt happy. Will try the cafe racer ones mentioned by someone here.
    3. New windshield, dropped the plan for now, no long tours coming up.
    4. Right side sare guard: Dropped the plan completely, the design is wrong! It would be a nightmare if i have a flat on the rear tyre. Now going to put stays for saddle bags. Thinking of removing the left saree guard as well to put stays in place.
    5. Head light grill, no luck in finding one. Might have to order online.
    6. Front fork gaitors: Ordered online. waiting for delivery.

    Another addition: Fuel tank!! My fuel tank has started rusting, and i am thinking of replacing it with one with a better fuel cap/cover, which does not let so much water seep in.

    Any pointers in these terms will be very helpful.

    Cheers!

    Yes, I can certainly get it de rusted. My problem is in the basic design of the cank fuel inlet which lets in lots of water during monsoons or otherwise, and causes a lot of inconvenience. I would be perfectly happy if I can find someone who can just modify the fuel tank and install a proper bung, which does not let so much water inside. (Im sure finding such a guy is more difficult than a tank which already has it). See attached picture as a reference of what I am looking for.


    Cheers!
