    HI,
    My avenger 220 street 2017 is giving me handling instability since 2-3 weeks.
    It has never once skidded or crashed.
    I have noticed high handle wobbling above 60 kmph (on absolutely straight clearest roads) after removing both hands, and i feel that the whole thing (tyre shocker handle combo) is slightly tilted towards left, also causing the bike to generally fall aur move towards the right.
    The ride is a little jumpy and both the tyres give a general shifty feel on stone roads ,potholes and even on those road embedded lights.
    I am very particular about the smallest things and i cant get my mind off this issue, can someone tell me what to do?
    I have heard this issue from atleast 5 other same model owners as well.

    P.s. The bike goes only to the official bajaj service center and i do not prefer anywhere else
    Check Air pressure in tyres.Also check if your bike has a fall .Do take care of handle end weights.

      After these steps you might look for any fork oil Leakage.

        I faced same issue in my Tvs jupiter. Reason was bearings were improper. Check if it's applicable to avenger.

          These are fitted with bolts fitted for backrest of bike.This is not a big deal that they come off

            Thank you for the advice sir, i took it to an alignment guy and he showed me that the alignment was out from the tube that is attached at the end of the main chassis, where that huge ass nut below the handlebar goes... It is fine now, but kinda pushy on bumpy roads... So i guess during the next service i will get the cone set changed and the shocker oil checked...
            Ps- the guy worked out the alignment, but i still feel that the whole steering combo(tyre shockers handle t), rests 2-3 mm on to the left side if i am going on a straight line. I wonder if it is just me or there really is something wrong with the bike.

                How is the build quality of latest Avengers??If looked after well will it serve say around 5 to 6 years??
                How is ride comfort especially seating posture,does it give back pain in longer run?
                How good is stock headlights?

                  Build quality is better then earlier as I compared street 2017 with 2018.
                  In street model there is no much tension.But in Cruise model as it has Nickel plated parts,it might need some care
                  For sitting comfort you will take some time to get adjusted to Cruiser sitting style.
                  Stock headlight were always good in Avenger.But in latest headlight have DRL.
                  So I might suggest you to go for Street Model.

                    Hi all. I'm confused between cruise and street.
                    Fan of the cruise but hate the whole chrome treatment and tube Tyre.
                    Would it be easy to get street and change the windshield and the handle? I heard cable change would be required for it and Bajaj sales told that we will not do it and asked to get it done from the market. However this will result in violation of warranty.

                    Thanks in advance.

                      Yes it will be easy to change windshield and handle and cables.
                      Keep handle in hand.
                      Change it in case of any warranty issue .It can be done at home no body will notice cables.

                            Also please take test ride .
                            One day street other day cruise and again street.
                            It will help you to make your mind.
                            Btw why not add windshield 1st. Handle bars and cables can wait.

                              Windshield will be added first, no doubt. I was just concerned about the cables. I'm take test rides and will decide the purchase.
                              Thanks bro.
